Most Domestic freezers are set to run at -18 degrees. If you turn the freezer coldness knob to maximum or set the digital controller to maximum, that will be as cold as the unit gets.

My freezer start only a few sec. After 10minutes start again


Roy,
Sounds like something is causing your compressor to kick the overload. It could be the overload itself or it could be the start relay or it could be a locked compressor. Probably best to call a service tech.

We have a Kenmore 16, model model 253.8283680, that recently continuously cycles on and off. What could be the problem associated with this?


Hello;



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



The normal cycle is: Your compressor will turn on to raise the freezer temperature 20 degrees F. above the set temperature, and then the compressor will shut off, Until the freezer temperature drops 20 degrees F. below the set temperature and again the compressor will turn on.



One of the main problems with this type of freezer is the door gasket becomes crushed over time or the door is so thin it becomes deformed.



Do not try to replace the door gasket. You have to soak the new gasket in hot water for 1/2 hour and then form it on the door.



If you notice a gap in the corner of the door - pull hard on it to get it flush.



Recondition the door gasket - With a hair dryer and a kitchen spatula, heat the gasket and try to expand the gasket by pulling out with the spatula.



You can purchase a special freezer lubricant. Be sure not to over do it. It can make the door hard to open. P/N 542638

I have a freezer bosch log/xx model dc125e12raw5r600 tempretureis only -5 is this normal


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
The ideal temperature range for a freezer is -2/+2 degrees F. This temperature range can very depending how full the freezer is. If your freezer is jam packed -5 degrees is good. If it is half full, +2 degrees F. is a good setting.
Too high of a setting such as -20 degree F. will cause freezer burn (bone dry your food).
Your compressor will kick in and cycle until it reaches the temperature setting. You can save on your electrical bills based on your evaluation of the necessary temperature setting.

Can any make of freezer be used in garage. Told only Beco


Refrigerators are designed to be used inside at typical to normal household temperatures. The problem with refrigerators are if the ambient temperatures drop down below 55 Degrees F Food in freezer will begin to defrost when the temperature in the garage goes below 55 degrees Fahrenheit. The fresh food section may begin to freeze food slightly below this temperature. If you live in an area where the outside ambient temperature does not get below 70 degrees F or 20 degrees C then the refrigerator will work fine but to have it located in an area where temperatures drop well below this you could lose some food. There are heaters that can be adapted to the compressor if used in an unheated area. Hope this helps, Sea Breeze

Wide variation in temperature in refrigerator section (40 degrees in top, 20 degrees in bottom, also, freezer set at WARMEST setting is ten degrees below zero.


Amana refrigerators older than 5 years have both a cold control and freezer control. this may be your problem. But check both the gaskets on the doors and check for heavy dirt on condser coil. Both can cause wild temp problems. Hope this helps

Have samsung american fridge freezer with ice dispenser i bought it second hand the problem is the digital display says the freezer is 20 degrees but its freezing inside also every minute or so we hear a...


If it's American, the temperature probably reads as fahrenheit. If so, 20 degrees F is 12 degrees F below freezing which converts to only -6.67 degrees Celsius.

Domestic freezers should be set to -17 degrees Celsius (= 0 degrees F), so the beeper is warning you that the freezer compartment is far too warm. If it's working correctly and has the temperature control set correctly, then it should achieve the correct temperature if you leave it for 24 hours and do not open the door nor try to use the ice dispenser. If the freezer is full of unfrozen items and so has to cool those down as well, then it may take even longer to reach the correct operating temperature.

Te operating manual for your appliance will tell you how to set the temperature correctly and whether it's possible to select between fahrenheit and Celsius scales. Most models allow you to set an override on the beep alarm as well. I cannot guide you on this without knowing the exact Samsung model.

Please take a moment to rate my reply.

Refrigerator will not cool


Do you mean the display won't go below 70 or that the actual temps won't go below 70? First try to unplug the refer for 20-30 seconds then plug it back in. Hopefully that will reset the levels to factory settings (usually around 0 for freezer and 36 for refer).
