Westinghouse fj383

ne of the most common reasons for the freezer to start failing is called "frost free failure." Ice can build up on the evaporator coils over time, and this ice builds up until it starts blocking the fan. The fan is responsible for circulating cold air throughout the freezer, so if it is blocked the freezer will not be able to freeze any food. You can usually check this by removing an access panel in the back of the freezer to inspect the coils. If ice is built up on the coils, a hairdryer can assist in defrosting them

Where can I download a service manual for my Westinghouse Upright Freezer Model FJ303 as I think there is something wrong with the defrost system

Go to Westinghouse web site and see if they are available there. If not , call them and have themsend one. Your defrost system is should be defrosting 2-3times a day. Is it not defrosting at all or is there an ice buildup.

Hi my westinghouse freezer keeps turning itself off. there is a glowing red button and everything just defrosts and then it will turn itself on again, randomly. It is a freestyle 380litre with a 6 hour...

Freezers need a defrost timer to turn it off for short durations so that the coils are not so covered in ice that it can't transfer heat.  Make sure that you don't use an under-rated extension cord.  Check for any fans that may be blocked from turning.

May I ask you how old these two Westinghouse Freezers are?
And their model #'s?

The alarm light intermittently, could mean the temperature fluctuates due to an ongoing problem that is starting to take place.

Or that that sensor or or light is malfunctioning and all is really well.
You need to put a refrigerator thermometer in and check the temperatures before you decide what you have to do with them! I think it's just the faulty light and probably all is well.
Let me know what you decide.
Please remember to make a rating before you sign off .
Bless You
But I think that these two freezers sound very old !


And I read a report that you may find interesting.

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.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!
Please do not for get to give a rating before you sign off!
Thank You, HUUUM

Not sure which freezer to buy?

If you want a manual defrost model they are all almost the same.
Manuel defrost is very simple, just compressor and thermostat. No fans or defrost system. The true indication of quality is the energy star rating. Look at the operating cost. The better made ones cost less to operate. Just shop by price and features you want. High temp warning, rapid freeze etc. Normally I would stay clear of the White/Westinghouse garbage(Gibson,Kelvinator, Frigidaire, etc.) in washers and dryers but in refrigeration they aren't too bad. It is really hard to tell anymore who actually makes what. They all seem to be buying each other out. GE sold out and doesn't make their own anymore, Whirlpool bought out Maytag, Jenn air, and Amana. Kenmore/Sears is mostly made by Whirlpool. I have trouble telling things apart anymore.
