My Fridgidaire upright Gallery freezer is freezing my food but the appliance seems to be constantly running and the temperature control on the outside is reading 29 Celsius when it obviously isn't


Hi Susan Abboud - Modern freezers have increased storage capacity and keep more even temperature that may require the compressors to run longer but use less energy. Was the unit disconnected previously for any reason? If so, freezer requires a minimum of 4 hours to cold down completely. Confirm that the temperature control is not set too cold and that the door is not being open frequently. A dirty, cracked, worn or poorly fitted door gasket can allow warm air to enter the unit causing it to have to run longer to remove the warm air. Leaks in the door seal will cause freezer to run longer in order to maintain desired temperature. Cleaned the gasket, if it is too damage then it will need to be replace. You can check and see if the door seal is bad by, placing a dollar between the gasket and cabinet. Check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing properly. If nothing is stopping the door then replace gasket. Keep in mind that there should also be at least 4-6 in of air space on all sides of the unit. If freezer is built in or has items stored on top that cover the unit, the can cause long run times, high temperature in the freezer and premature failure to the unit. Do not block the toe grille on the lower front of the unit. Sufficient air circulation is essential for the properly operation of your freezer, about 3 inches around the unit.

I have a manitowoc commercial ice machine.It has stoped making Ice and just seems to keep running water and not freezing


Hi,

Check to see if the compressor is running... if it is running and not cooling then it may have a refrigerant leak...
If the plate is getting cold but the water is not freezing then check to make sure that the float is not stuck on and the the water just keeps running in... that will keep the water warm enough so that it does not freeze...

I am not sure but just for good measure>>>
Is your circulating fan working?
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed

Freezer defrosting


If this is a frost free freezer you may be he\aring the fan motors run and not the compressor. I suggest you call a qualified and trustworthy repairman and have him look it over for sure.
Short if that you'll need to feel of the compressor to see if its hot or cold. Vibrates or not. See if the fan motor under it is running or not. See if the inside fan is running or not

If either fasn is out start there as to why and effect repairs. If the compressor is cold It hasnt been running for a while and you will need to check voltage at the compressor and if t\you have voltage there you need to try new start components to see if it will run. If no voltage there check the thermostat (and if self defrosting) the defrost timer.

After this you can see why I suggest you call a quiulified repairman. way too many things to consider and keep you from making a correct diagnosis

If this helps you polease rate me as high as you can and thank you for using fixya.
