SOURCE: Freezer quits working

Solution Found! The problem is when the temperature surrounding the refrigerator in the garage falls to < 45 degrees, the thermostat regulating the refrigerator will not call for the compressor to kick in to provide cooling (it's temperature requirements are being met). Since there is no demand, the compressor will not cycle, which is how the freezer is kept cold, and the freezer eventually warms up to match the refrigerator temperature. Frigidaire makes a "Cold Kit" that I ordered and installed from RepairClinic.com for $22 (Item #: 1037646; Description: Garage kit). It's basically a strip heater that runs off the control power to warm the thermostat and causes the compressor to cycle once to twice a day to keep the freezer frozen. After installation, the refrigerator stays at 40-45 and the freezer stays around 0 degrees.

you would have to remove the back lower panel of the freezer section to get a feel as to whats going on in there. behind the panel you will find an evaporator panel that should have consist ant frost pattern from top to bottom with no excessive clumps of ice.I'm assuming you don't otherwise your refrig would be working ok..
either theres only the top 1 or 2 coils actually have ice on them, and the rest of the coil is bright shiny aluminum. or there is an excessive amount of ice built up so far that you dont even see an evap coil.
if the first is true and threre little frost then that points to a sealed system/ low freon issue. and call a servicer. you should have a full 5 yr warr. for sucha problem
if its the second issue hen theres a defrost problem and youll need to replace either the defrost heater, defrost thermstat( most likely),or the defrost board/timer

SOURCE: Freezer not cold enough; fridge OK

Hello cokoliso,
Welcome to Fixya

You said, your Trio won't make ice. Freezer stays at about 25 degrees regardless of control setting. Fridge maintains 40 degrees at mid setting. Shouldn't the freezer be close to zero? Is there a way to check the temperature sensor in the freezer?

To check the temperature you can buy a refrigerator thermometer at the hardware store.
Ask if it can be used in the freezer too!

The fridge sounds slightly to cold and the freezer not enough.
Fist look in your freezer and check if the articles there are full to the max and covering the air vents usually found in the rear of the freezer.If so clear an opening for the freezer to breath.
Refrigerators and freezers usually share the cold air and I've seen this be the problem on many occasions.
If freezer was not I blocking the vents or even full to the max.

Then pull the plug out or if you can not reach the plug, trip the breaker off for 5 minutes and see if this resets the system.BUT do not plug the fridge back in before at least 3 minutes.

Let me know how it goes and send me any questions.
Thank You, Huuum

How to lower freezer temperature


Not sure what you mean by the freezer too cold? The freezer section should be at or below 0 degrees C or 32 degree F. if its working properly. If the FF section is too warm and your temp control door or vent is at max cold either the vent is not moving (stuck in the closed position) or the fan in the freezer is not working.

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that you want to know the temperature to set your Frigidaire freezer. Recommended factory default setting is 0 degrees F. 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 Frigidaire status has changed successfully. If more troubleshooting is needed, please leave me your model number in your comment. Hope this is helpful.

Freezer too cold


Is this a model=>FGHC2342LF Sounds like the freezer=> 240597203 Thermistor may be defective??There should be one in the freezer that regulates the temp and this one may be causing the compressor to run continious and you may not be getting the correct reading from freezer. Have you seen this?

Side by Side ModelsIf foods, such as fruits and vegetables, in the refrigerator are freezing, it can be caused by several things. First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenheit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • If food in the bottom of the refrigerator is freezing, this could be caused by a refrigerator not having enough food to absorb the cold air.
  • If food in the door is freezing, move the door bins up or down so they are one notch away from freezer vents (Side by Side models only).
  • The fresh food control should be at the normal setting of 5.

First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenehit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Since the cold air coming into the fresh food section originates in the freezer above, the rear of the top shelf will be the coldest spot in the fresh food area. Avoid placing delicate items that freeze easily on the back half of this shelf.
  • If food is freezing in the produce (fruits and vegetables) or meat pan, it may be that the temperature controls are not set high enough. Since cold air naturally falls, the pans can get too cold if the refrigerator is not running long enough to maintain good air circulation. Adjust both controls up one notch.

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.
