My freezer has been working perfectly apart from the door occasionally not shutting properly which I'm warned about by the alarm when the temperature rises. However today, with no warning, when I went to take something out of the freezer I noticed that the display was not showing the temperature; it was just a single green illuminated dot. The freezer was still quite cold but I don't know what the temperature was and the food seemed ok apart from the ice cream which I threw away as it was a bit soft. I tried turning the freezer off and on and now have a flashing red number 1. It has been like this for about an hour and hasn't changed. I don't know what the temperature is or what is happening or what to do.
Any ideas please?

Sounds like bad cold control. Replace it. I cannot see your repyl due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks
the temperature control is bad. when you push the fast freeze it bypasses the thermostat for 12-24 hours depending on which model you have. I am not able to find any parts information with the model number provided but you should be able to find a temperature control at any local appliance parts house or online thru any reputable supplier.

The light is there to indicate there is power. If it is running constantly and still not cooling properly there is a problem in the sealed system (or the door is not sealed completely, but there would be a lot of frost were this the case. Here is a link to where you can find the manual with a complete model number. HDR-SR12E Eric

That alarm light means that the unit was too warm for a period of time. The door may not have closed properly. It is a warning to you that the food may have thawed out. It does not mean something is wrong. To reset it switch it off and on or unplug it for a minute.
In order to stop the door ajar alarm from beeping when the door is closed you would need to reset the alarm. If you have done that and it continues to beep it could be an issue within the switch or panel of your Frigidaire freezer. I would recommend having a professional come out to properly diagnose your appliance. -Matt
Warning light (red)
If the temperature warning light (4) lights up, it
indicates that the temperature within the freezer has
reached a level where the safe food storage is no
longer ensured. When the freezer is first switched on, the warning light will stay on until the temperature has dropped to
a safe level for the storage of frozen food.
Temperature acoustic alarm
This appliance incorporates an alarm which gives off
an audible signal whenever the warning light comes
on. This signal can be temporarily stopped by
depressing the push button for fast-freezing (6).
The fast-freezing push button can be released as
soon as the warning light is off.
Open door acoustic alarm
This appliance also incorporates an alarm which
sounds if the door is left open for more than 60
seconds. The signal will be stopped when the door is
I understand the door ajar light keeps flashing even though the door is closed on your Frigidaire freezer, model# FFU17K1CW. Please try resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. If further troubleshooting is needed, please leave the model number of your appliance. Hope this is helpful.
I understand that the temperature alarm light is on for your Frigidaire freezer, model# FFU21M8CW. This feature is designed to provide a warning of a possible malfunction. If the temperature of the food rises to a level unsafe for long-term storage, the buzzer will sound. The red light, if equipped, will also glow. The Temp Alarm feature operates on household electricity. If power fails, the alarm will not function. An ON/OFF switch allows you to deactivate the Temp Alarm when not wanted. Your freezer is shipped with the Temp Alarm in the OFF position. After your freezer has run approximately 4 hours, the red light, if equipped, will go off. Then you may activate the Temp Alarm without the alarm sounding. Press the ON switch to activate the Temp Alarm. To deactivate, press the OFF switch. If the alarm sounds, be sure freezer is properly leveled, and the door closes freely, and seals properly. If you suspect a technical malfunction, call an authorized servicer immediately. Hope this is helpful.
Hi Clair, thank you for allowing me to assist you.
When the refrigerator is
beeping or buzzing, it may be a warning sign of a possible malfunction or an
unsafe, interior temperature. To silence the buzzer, you can depress the ALARM
OFF button. However, if you have already done this, try unplugging the unit or
flipping the household circuit breaker for about ten minutes.
If the alarm continues, it could possibly be experiencing a
communication problem with the temperature control/board or wiring failure. I
would recommend connecting with a professional appliance tech for a clear-cut
Hi grammycather, thank you for allowing me to assist you. Here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may
help you resolve this issue:
check clearances around your freezer. There must be adequate space around a freezer
with a static condenser so that air can circulate properly. Proper clearances
include 1" at the back and 3" on top of the unit.
your doors. If the doors have been opened too often or for too long, this may
have allowed warm air to enter the appliance. Make sure to shut the door
completely and be sure not to keep the door open for too long. Even leaving a
door slightly open can allow too much warm air intake. Make sure freezer is
level and keep food and containers from blocking the door closing.
the door seal. You do this by placing a dollar bill between the body of the freezer
and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a
small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between
the gasket and cabinet, double check to see if the door is being blocked by
anything that may be stopping it from closing. If nothing is stopping the door
from closing then refer to a tech to replace the gasket.
to see if the condenser is dirty. A dirty condenser cannot release heat
efficiently into the surrounding air. Cleaning the condenser may be necessary,
more if you have animals in the house. If you have condenser coils, they should
be wiped occasionally with a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust. The
condenser coils should be wiped occasionally with a damp cloth to remove
for any obstructions to the vent to ensure proper air flow. If the vent is
blocked, the air in the freezer will not get cool.
I suggest to double check the
freezer control. If the freezer control is set too warm, set freezer control to
a colder setting and allow 24 hours for temperature to stabilize.
If these assessment measures prove to be ineffective, I
would strongly suggest contacting an authorized service technician who would be
better able to assist you in the diagnosis and repair of your unit. You can
often locate an experienced technician in your area by going to the
Hello Michael - Sounds like the temperature control was
accidently turned OFF. When this occurs the temperature control turns off the
compressor, but does not disconnect the power to the light bulb or other
electronics. Let's try activating the freezer by pressing the UP arrow until
display shows "4" or desired setting. Allow 24 hours for temperature to
stabilize. For future reference you can lock the control to keep from accidently
changing the temperature setting. I ask that you please follow up with a
comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting
is needed or if the unit's status has changed successfully. Thank you.
