Sometimes it does hurt it and sometimes it doesnt. When a freezer sits for any length of time sometimes the freon will leak out. It would be best to leave the freezer plugged in.

HI I JUST PURCHASED A 2ND HAND WESTINGHOUSE UPRIGHT FREEZER FJ383T. WAS RUNNING FINE WHEN I PICKED IT UP, GOT IT HOME AND TURNED IT ON THE NEXT DAY,AND THE ALARM LIGHT IS ON. ANY SUGGESTIONS. CHEERS


did you leave it to stand with no power on for an hour. ? check the door seals are clean and the door close properly. wipe them down on the magnetic seals around the doors. plugging in the unit before it settles can leave air in system from being moved around. this makes the system work harder and gets to hot. in the line.

Why does my upright freezer runs then kicks off, runs then kicks off?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire freezer runs for a short time and then kicks off. Then it turns on with a click and repeats its cycle. This is how your freezer functions. When it needs to cool, the compressor will kick on and cool until the temperature is reached. Then it will kick off until it needs to cool again. It's possibly due to the hot and humid summer that it is cycling on and of more. I hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Freezer does not get cold enough to freeze the food in the summer.


I am assuming that you have it in a place where it gets hot in the summer.
If the freezer has a fan either in the back or at the bottom, make sure the fan runs, and the coils are clean. If the freezer has the condensor against the back wall you could help it by adding a small fan so as to blow away the hot air.

The freezer is in my garage and it is about 90 degrees. Sides of freezer are very hot. Is this a problem.


It is not a good idea to put a freezer in an unairconditioned garage. The reason is because freezers are designed to operate in temperatures of a typical home. It's job is to keep the contents below freezing. When it is in unconditioned garage, it has to work harder in the summer to maintain that temperature. So it will get very hot in these conditions and will use a lot of energy to keep your food cold than if it was in an airconditioned space. As working is such a tough environment, don't expect it to last as long as if it was in an airconditioned space. Hope this helps you.

Try cleaning out the drain opening with a pipe cleaner. Or use a turkey baster and force hot water into the drain. Rinse with a mild bleach solution to kill any mold. Another solution is to unplug the unit and let it sit for a couple of days to defrost completely. Sometimes during the humid summer the system just gets over burdened and doesn't defrost completely. This gets progressivly worse until you get this problem.
