Question about Frigidaire 14.1 cu. ft. Upright Freezer (FFU14K0DW)
First the control panal had no number or light so bought new one installed it, plugged in, went to 4 and stayed there, now the freezer has motor sound going all the time and never turns off. It has been a day since replacing the control panal. Temperature is cold, food frozen, motor or fan running all the time.

Yes that is the correct part number.
If a new cold control does not correct the problem. Replace the compressor start relay.

Hi: It sounds like you bought a frost free freezer as it has a fan. The fan will come on to circulate the air. It will not necessarly run continuosly. The noise is most likely coming from the fan. I sold Frigidaire freezers for years and they are noisy compared to a refridgerator. If you think it is louder than it was when you bought it, I would replace the circulating fan. Also look at the back wall for frost as it could be a bad defrost heater blocking it with ice. Most likely just the fan though. Since it's in a detached garage,and you won't have to put up with the noise inside your house, it could run a while before failing. The fact it's getting cold is a very good sign.Also as you asked 2'nd, a freezer is ok in an unheated garage. Don't put a refrigerator in there. Unless It is a Whirlpoll Gladiator that is designed for such applications. Use www.searspartsdirect.com to find out where the fan is if you feel it is necessary to replace it. Its not a tough job if you are handy. Their shipping is expensive so you might want to buy it locally.

If your'e positive the temp is ok then your freezer cold control may be bad. Slowly turn it toward off. If the compressor doesn't cut off before it gets to off, the control is probably bad. Test it here>http://www.acmehowto.com/howto/appliance/refrigerator/refrigerator.php

I'm Not a pro, but the comments refer to a refrigerator. I don't think they read your problem from start to finish. I went to RSI in Phoenix, and I would say it is low on refrigerant. I hope it's 134a.
Over the years the freon sloowly leaks out, it might need only an ounce or two but it will fix it in my opinion. I have the same problem with mine.

Thank you for your inquiry, friend!
Normally it is recommended to set your Frigidaire upright freezer to zero degrees. It is your option to make it cooler if you choose too. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt
