SOURCE: Used extension cord on freezer then it stopped getting cold.

never use a extension cord unless it is of a larger gauge wire size eg: #12. as opposed to standard #16 or #14. the compressor/motor will not get needed power and burns out.

SOURCE: Frigidaire fridge freezer not getting cold

Louise, this is a big area. I would switch off the fridge, look at the back where you see the" box things". You should see a timer which is white or black (wires comming out of it).. It has a short type of knob which can be turned manually clockwise.. Turn about a 1/4 turn then try and switch on again. If not, thermostat will be the problem. Assuming you never disrupted any wires.

Re lights lit on freezer


Red light lit on freezer means that is not reaches operating temperature.

Most often the old freezer has three indicator lights.
- Green light : that it is brought to a power source and turned on - Red light : means that the temperature is above -18 degrees
- orange light : pressing the so-called SUPER-switch which means that the compressor is running continuously. The SUPER-button switch on a few hours before you begin deep-freeze foods. Freezing time depending on foods quantity (kg). With old freezer must be careful to turn off the switch S (orange light) when the red light goes out or when foods are frozen, otherwise after a few days may burn out the compressor. You should be following the instructions from user manual.
In new freezer managed by the electronics, this function has a predetermined maximum duration, in order to protect the compressor, and can have different marketing names like "shopping".....

Replace burnt power cable


You can replace it with the average extension cord as most can hold up to 12 amps and your freezer will pull 2-5. Just cut the extension cord to length and cut before where the wires are burnt out. Strip wires and connect black to black, white to white and green to green. Marrett each section of wires and plug it in. If you use electrical tape to make a bundle with the Marretts afterwards that will make sure there is less of a chance the Marretts will fall off.



good luck

The freezer is cold, but, ice is melting. Its running and the run and power lights are lit up. I removed ice(very little) around the top edge to make sure the door closes shut. It was just fine last n


All I can offer for advice is to ask if it is on an extension cord. Is the freezer plug in good shape and not blistered? Make sure that the cord is a heavy enough gauge to carry the current needed to run the compressor. An extension cord can break down over time and cause the compressor to overheat or fail. Wish I could be more help. Good luck!

I have a deep freezer,the light is on but doesn't freeze. It's only 2 yrs old what could be the problem?I unpluged it and waited 10 mins pluged back in and nothing the red light stayed on but...


Well a freezer is easy to repair. The circuit goes from one side of the power cord to the cold control and down to the compressor then out to the other side of the power cord. Id the control or compressor relay is open then she won't freeze. All the parts to it are listed HERE.
From the list I see an overload for the compressor. If that one is open it won't freeze. Bypass the temp control wires to see if she runs.

Am I supposed to turn off the quick freeze once the deep freezer is cold?


http://www.mcappliance.com/document/MCCF5WBX.pdf
i read the entire manual and even type in the words "quick freeze" in pdf. find space and it is not in there.
heres the link read it for yourself
it only mentions green light and red light.
The “POWER” light (Green) indicates that the freezer is properly connected to the electrical power.
The “RUN” light (Red) will not illuminate when the unit is operating below freezing.
The “RUN” light will illuminate when the temperature inside the unit increases above freezing. Please
be advised that the “RUN” light may come on for a period of time when the lid is opened, when new
items are stored inside the unit or when the lid is forced open by irregular contents.
Do not call for service unless the “RUN” light has remained on for 6 hours or more. If this light stays
on continuously for a period of 6 hours, please contact our Customer Service Dept. to consult with a
representative at 888 775-0202 or visit our website to request warranty service at www.magicchefewave.
