    it seems that compressor lost compression,or gas is leaked,you must check a gas in cooling system (if you have tool for cooling systems),and check a compression.in both case you must open a system and refill it with gas.

If your compressor is running with no freon, It should be very hot. Check if it is. And if it is and the freon has leaked out. Then you must find the leak in the system before you add more freon. If you dont this will be an ongoing problem. The freon will leak out after any length of time. This is a very hard task to find the leak, and you will be money ahead to buy another if you dont find the leak than to re charge every year or so.

My high temp alarm has been on all day


the warming up will be because the unit is not operational and the door hasn't been opened
call a service technician and check for a failed start/run capacitor for the compressor
the high temp alarm indicates that the food is in danger of spoiling

Why is the temperature alarm light on, on my freezer Model# FFU21M8CW?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the temperature alarm light is on for your Frigidaire freezer, model# FFU21M8CW. This feature is designed to provide a warning of a possible malfunction. If the temperature of the food rises to a level unsafe for long-term storage, the buzzer will sound. The red light, if equipped, will also glow. The Temp Alarm feature operates on household electricity. If power fails, the alarm will not function. An ON/OFF switch allows you to deactivate the Temp Alarm when not wanted. Your freezer is shipped with the Temp Alarm in the OFF position. After your freezer has run approximately 4 hours, the red light, if equipped, will go off. Then you may activate the Temp Alarm without the alarm sounding. Press the ON switch to activate the Temp Alarm. To deactivate, press the OFF switch. If the alarm sounds, be sure freezer is properly leveled, and the door closes freely, and seals properly. If you suspect a technical malfunction, call an authorized servicer immediately. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Frigidaire FFU14F5HW Hi-Temp alert. Checked thermistor at front panel pins 1 to 2, reading was 162.8K ohms. Removed panel to check thermistor, then put it in a cup of ice water-now reads 32.1K ohms. P


Check the internal temp with a thermometer. Anything above -12c will give you the hi alarm. Check the condenser is clean and drier not too warm, no ice build up inside the evaporator and all fans working properly etc, before suspecting thermistors.

I have a stand alone freezer model MFU17F3GW8 serial # WB11907298 my problem is that it does not get cold enough. what could be the problem?


. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay.

Are the condenser coils on the back warm or room temp. should be warm


How to check stuff>
http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php

evaporator coils are behind the rear cover inside the freezer at the bottom.
observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).
Compressor or freon problem will require a repairman.

you may have a bad compressor.also need to check the evaporator fan and see if it is turning. do you have any kind of frost build up on the back wall that you can see.the fan is located behind the rear panel in the back of the freezer if you your it running you may have a bad compressor
