    I had this happen to me. I unplugged the freezer and let it set for a couple of minutes and then plugged it back in. This resolved my problem. I think my thermostat was stuck or something.

Unplug freezer to reset, if display still says off when plugged back in and will not change then I would have to say the t-stat/board is done for and will need to be replaced.

How do i get my Kenmore Elite freezer out of demo mode


Which model freezer do you have?

A few possible resets: press and hold the Set and + keys for 5+ seconds. On some models, that will get the freezer out of demo mode. On other models, it's the Set and Down arrow. For a few models, it's the Options and Up arrow. In all cases, it's press and hold both buttons until the unit responds.

I hope you will add a comment with the model of your freezer so that I can determine which set of instructions will work for your unit.

Let's try this again. My frigidaire freezer model Lffh21f7hwg, the display board reads "of". How do I reset it. I do not have the owners manual.


I appreciate your post, Clayton!

From the information you have provided the display board on your Frigidaire freezer reads "OF". That reading means your freezer is off, you should be able to turn it back on by pressing the up or down arrow five times in a row. If you need any additional assistance please feel free to reconnect. I hope this is helpful to you. -Matt

Ok, upright freezer, frigidaire, read -12 after power outage but working ok..when I tried to reset temp to 0, light went off, freezer went off, front display reads 56..any ideas?


Thank you for your post, Cynthia!

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire freezer is not cooling properly and is now displaying the temperature of 56. It sounds like your freezer is not on, even though it has power the compressor is not turned on. I would suggest pressing either the down or up arrow three times within five seconds. That should power on your compressor and it should start cooling properly. I hope this is helpful and if you should need further assistance please feel free to reconnect. -Matt

Error code 0F


Good Morning Stephanie Garcia, thank you for your post!

From the information you have provided your Frigidaire freezer is displaying an error code of "OF". Typically, an "OF" stands for power off, you should be able to press the up arrow three times in a row within five seconds to turn your freezer back on. If that does not help correct your issue you may want to perform a reset and you can do that by unplugging the power cord for roughly ten minutes. I hope this helps. -Matt

Why is my freezer on 0?


Good Afternoon Friend, this is Z. That's a great question!

Depending on the model number of your Frigidaire freezer, "0" could indicate two scenarios. First, if it is set to 0 (zero) that could be the temperature it is set at. On some models, "0" means that your freezer is in the off position. You can re-start your freezer by pressing and releasing the "UP" arrow 3 times. If it continues to display "0", press and release the "DOWN" arrow 3 times. 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 freezer status has change successfully. Thank you!

Off


The frigidaire freezer control are very prone to failure. You will need to order a new one. They are very easy to install. Just unplug freezer, grab flat blade and pop loose evenly on top and bottom.

Hello Warner, thank you for your post!

Typically when a freezer displays "OFF" it means that the temperature control is in the off position. 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 re-activating your freezer by pressing the UP arrow until display shows "4" or desired setting. If the issue persists, then the freezer could possibly be experiencing a communication issue with the control board, temperature control or a potential wiring failure. At this point, I suggest reaching out to an appliance expert who is best equipped to pinpoint the exact problem.

Best of luck!

Freezer reads off on display


Not sure if its the same for all Kenmore freezer models but this may indicate it is in demo mode. To remove this press the up or down arrow three times as fast as possible (within 2 seconds). This will start the compressor, I hope this helps.

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.
