I understand that your Frigidaire freezer, model# LFFU17F5HWC, seems to be stuck in a defrost mode. Your freezer is supposed to automatically defrost for 30 minutes after every 12 hours of compressor run time. I suggest resetting your appliance, be either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your homes circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and watch to see if it is still stuck in defrost mode. 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 washer status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.
a possible solution is to UNPLUG the unit, reach in from underneath and start pulling stuck paper out. On mine (different model) I can remover the paper receptacle bin and reach up to remove stuck paper. this usually is caused by overloaded bin pushing shredded paper back up to cutters because it is overfull......BE SURE TO UNPLUG FIRST !!!!!
Unplug for several hours, press and hold power button for 5 seconds, wait half hour more, plug back in and try. Or press and hold either channel buttons at same time or volume buttons at the same time to see if that exits the mode.
Always put stickers in the shredder between two layers of 3-4 plain paper sheets. That's for future. Now I would suggest getting some "Label Off", "Label Killer" or similar spray product, that will dissolve the glue, spraying the cutters and stuck labels with it several times, trying to remove them with tweezers or thin long-nose pliers. Be gentle, try not to blunt the cutters' edges. When you get rid of the labels, spray more of the stuff on the cutters and clean them with a brush, to remove glue residue between them. Do it several times, rotating the cutters to remove the glue all around. Then lubricate the cutters as per manufacturer's recommendations.
If this model has electronic eyes (optics) to control the auto-start/stop function and you oil the cutters, chances are the optics are contaminated with shredder oil. Take a cotton swab with a little alchohol and clean and dry the optics.
If you removed the top cover, it is a possibility that you disconnected the wires from the PC Board.
Sounds like your compressor overload tripping. Compressor may be stuck from sitting. Start relay may be stuck from sitting. Try a new start relay after making sure all your wires and connections are good. Sometimes a wrap with a deadblow hammer on the side of the compressor can get it going. Don't pound on it just a light wrap. My guess is the relay or overload first. Unplug before fooling with any wiring!
