Hello Captain rose,
Did you turn off the freezer and then pull the plug?
Try this again. Turn off the freezer then pull the plug for 4 minutes, plug it back in and turn it on.
Do you hear the compressor turn on?
It should only take 24 hours max. to get back to full temperature!
If this does not help and you hear no compressor, especially if it is an old freezer .
They may have burned out the old compressor by causing it to work 2 hours straight .
Rather than cycling off and on every half hour or so!
If it was an old freezer, so it means it was on its last legs and would have happened some time soon any way!

Here is an article I read abut the age of refrigerators and freezers.

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

SOURCE: Freezer alarm stuck on - can't reset

Hi: Does the freezer have a battery backup for the electronics? A 9v. battery in the grill down below. You won't have to remove the grill but pull a small rectangular panel to expose the battery. High end Kenmore freezers have a battery to back up the alarm. The six you see is actually supposed to be a "b" for battery most likely. L.E.D.'s are tough to tell the difference. Buy an new battery and all will be well. I hope this helps, Jeff

Is your circulating fan working?
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed
and PLEASE give a Thumbs Up for the effort. The Raz Shack

Alarm go on with no apparent reason


Thank you for your post, michael!

I see that the alarm inside your Frigidaire freezer continues to beep it sounds like a potential issue within your control panel or thermistor. Your alarm will beep to inform you that the inside of your freezer is reaching high temperatures. Performing a reset on your appliance could help correct the problem, to perform a reset you need to unplug your freezer or flip the household circuit breaker off for ten minutes. I hope this has been helpful. -Matt

Factory reset for electrolux appliance


in order to solve a problem you need to understand how the device works. ideal for sensing the status of appliance doors
whether in the open or closed state (or for internal light). in the door under insulation (not visible) is a permanent magnet which switch on or off reed switch (usually on electronic). when the door is closed, the permanent magnet close or open the reed switch, depending what kind of switch is, normally open or normally closed. electronic received that information and because that (open door) stop the cooling fan. so, in your situation i would like to check that door is not hung up for some reason or try use an external permanent magnet. of course, reed switch should be checked also, because sometimes contacts may remain closed.

My frigidaire freezer upright has an error message door ajar


Sounds like the main control board to the unit needed to be reset and with the resetting it has caused a communication error with the door sensor. Contact a service tech to move forward with a repair.

Door was not sealed tightly for about a day resulting in some frost inside freezer. Door appears to be closed but door ajar light is still lite and alarm is still beeping. What do I need to check?


The door seal has a magnetic property to it. Until the freezer gets to a certain degree the magnetic porperties of the door seal dont react properly. Make sure the door seal is properly adjusted. If the door was left open it could have semi warped the door. This gets corrected when temp drops to correct temp. Reset freezer by unplugging and waiting for a few minutes. If problem persist contact appliance technician.

If you have any more questions you can comment me back.
