Does it have cooling coils in the back... or underneath... that might need to be cleaned and vacuumed out???. That is a common problem.. Another thing, check to see if the door is sealing properly.. The next suspect might be the temperature adjustment mechanism that you've been adjusting..
Ice cream needs to be at 10 degrees or colder to stay hard. Check your thermostat and move it colder if you need but give it 24 hours to stabilize to the new setting. Another thing you might check are the coils on the outside of your freezer. They will be on the back or underneath your freezer. What you need to look for is to see if there is any lint or dirt that might be built up on the coils. If they are real dirty they need to be cleaned off with a vacuum or an air hose if you have one. The dirt build up keeps the freezer from cooling efficiently and causes it to run warmer than normal. If all of that is clean and boosting the thermostat to a colder setting does not take care of it you might need to call a service tech. Hope this helps.
This is normal. The condenser coils on freezers are typically located in the walls.
The refrigerator in your kitchen has condenser coils that are hot either under the frig or on the back. Freezers do not need as much heat transfer on the coils with the air so they put them in the walls, it is called a warm wall condenser. It may even feel hot to the touch if you happen to feel it near the end of a cooling cycle. It will be the warmest close to the compressor and cool off at it makes it around the cabinet down to the other side.
there is no way of cleaning the coils.there maybe a problem with the compressor.you should hear a fan running inside the freezer when it is in the cooling cycle and the compresor is running if you do not here the fan running this could cause a cooling issue and the evaporator could be building up with ice.
check the rear of the freezer to see if there is any ice build up.
It has seperate cooling circuits as you describe the problem can be a leak of refrigerant in the freezer circuit.if there is no heating up in the freezer condensing coil.It has to be check for the leakage.
just about all friges work off the frezer .the evap fan moves the air fromthe frezer to the frig.so you would here fan noise.i dont know your brand but on most frezers if you turn the frezer temp to the highest setting thats acomplished by keeping the air from going to the frige.hence warmer frig temps .also make sure fan on out side back is working and condenser is clean.again turn air damper control from frezer to frige to lowest setting .somthimes this could be in frig section.God bless ,tom
I have an upright freezer which temp was unstable. The coils were frosted up, and the circulating fan was unable to pull air across the cooling fins.I defrosted the unit, cleaned it up, and turned it back on. Worked fine until it frosted up again. The unit was a no frost model. I had to have it serviced, and one of the defrost sensors was bad. No problems since this was fixed.
