Question about Frigidaire 14.1 cu. ft. Upright Freezer (FFU14K0DW)

1 Answer

Replaced control board on upright frigidaire freezer and it never turns off but runs straight is that normal?

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.

SOURCE: Whining sound from motor on Frigidaire upright freezer

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

SOURCE: I bought a used Kenmore upright freezer, it's been running all the time.

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.
Good Luck
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.

If the control is "ON" and the compressor is not running, you will need a start relay... Make sure you didn't accidentally turn it off by pushing food against the control knob!

What do OF and UL mean on temp control for ffh17f7hwb Frigidaire upright freezer?


Hello;

My name is peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

"Of" means you are locked into the defrost mode. This is where your unit will shut down every 8-10 hours. Everything will stop running except for the light. The defrost mode take about 20-30 minutes where the heater turns on and defrost the cooling coil, then the unit turns back on.

Some upright freezer have a separate defrost timer, but not yours.

Your defrost timer is built into your control board.

PART NUMBER: 297366300 - Cost: $70.00
If you go into the internet you may be able to get the board for $40.00.

Install:
1.) Unplug your unit.
2.) Ground your self by touching bare metal. Static electricity will knock out a board.
3.) With a small flat head screw driver, wedge the outer frame and pop the assembly out. You only have one connector to disconnect. You may need the small screw driver to free the connector.

What number should i set the upright freezer control


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

Frigidaire upright frostfree freezer stored several years unplugged, restored power last night alarm keeps ringing and freezer is not getting cold.


Clean the unit entirely, coils, filter, etc. Then retry. You might have a faulty control board since it has not been used in many years. All depends on the location and humidity. That can tear up a thermostat and control board.

OK, this is a failed controller board, any E4* is Power supply & Controller Board, probably caused by a power spike.You need to get the unit looked at to see if it is able to be repaired, and if parts are available. If you wish to try and repair this yourself, you must get a service manual, to do so, and to be able to order parts.

My frigidaire FFU20FC6AW7 is not freezing. sides are cool to the touch and they are normally hot. cold air blowing out about 40 degrees.


If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.
