Freezer is running but food is thawing

My upright freezer is full of food and is running. However, the food is thawing out. Is there something I can do to perhaps re-set it? I've been at the hospital with my son for the last 3 days. We could have had a power outtage but the power is on now and the freezer has been running for the last three (3) days. Please help!

If this is a self defrosting freezer, check amd make sure the evaporator fan motor is running and make sure there is no frost buit up on the back panel. Please let me know if either of these are the case so I can assist you further.

Thanks

Frigidaire upright FFU17f9gw3 temperture light is on and food is starting to thaw. I put alot of freezer jam in freezer yesterday


If the control is "ON" and the compressor is not running, you will need a start relay... Make sure you didn't accidentally turn it off by pushing food against the control knob!

Door seal not tight on upright freezer


Check the door sits straight and square on the front. You can "adjust" with the heel of your hand to make it sit flat against the frame. Even a poor seal shouldn't make frozen food thaw - check and clean the condenser and fan

I have a 4yr old 13.7 cubic upright frigidare freezer. Running all the time, I defrosted it recently (only minimal frost/ice on base behind basket) after noting top shelf warmer than others and food...


Hi, Put a thermometer in the freezer and see if it gets down to 0 to 5 above zero. If it is not getting that cold, something is wrong. If you had frost building up behind the rear panel, there is a defrost problem.
Please let me know the temperature and I can assist you further.
