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 In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board.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.

Frigidaire freezer, model: LFFH2067DW4. Runs constantly, 10 degrees inside, outside top and sides VERY hot to the touch, high temperature alarm will not turn off. What's the problem? Defrost timer?


I'm assuming Fahrenheit... (USA?)

If you can get down that cold... but not seize up completely in FROST your timer is MOST PROBABLY cycling correctly...

What can cause a refrigerator to work very hard... generate heat yet still fight to cool (Impressive when you think about it)...

I know this is going to sound crazy... but your INTERIOR LIGHT.

Never-mind trouble shooting... just take the light out to see if the WARM case situation improves immediately...

Else you need to give your coils a serious good cleaning

All else fails comment me back

Freezer stopped after power outage


If the sides are hot, look at the defrost timer. Sounds like it has stopped running with the defrost elements on. The compressor has a safety switch on it that opens either if the compressor gets too hot or if it pulls too much current when starting. If your power flickered a lot before coming back on, that triggered the safety switch. Now that it's running normally, I wouldn't worry. The defrost timer is your problem now.

Freezer Will not freeze in some areas


Check the door gasket near those shelves.

Make sure the condenser fins or tubes have adequate air flow for cooling (it looks a bit like a small but fat car radiator). In most freezers, this will be in the bottom in the back. You may have to remove a vented cover to check this. Usually there is a fan blowing air through the condenser. Carefully vacuum out any dirt in the condenser (the fins are delicate and bend easily), and verify that the fan runs smoothly when the compressor is running.

Put a thermometer in the freezer right by the cold air inlet to verify that the refrigerant is doing its job. It should read 0 degrees F. or below (-18 degrees C). If it doesn't get down that far, the compressor needs to be recharged or replaced.

If the door has been hit hard (somebody falling and slamming into it) the door insulation may be damaged there. Check to see if the outside of the door feels cold there compared to the rest of the door. If it does, the door needs to be repaired or replaced.

The outside of the freezer sides are extremely hot to the touch? Why? Freezing fine on the inside.

Gladiator ref is not cooling properly


Check to see if there is cold air coming from the freezer to the refridgerator side through the vent holes The compressor maybe getting weak or the freon charge maybe low. Does the unit run a long time before it shuts off? 50 degrees is not cold enough for a freezer. You should be around 32 or less.

New whirlpool refrig. freezer ok at 0 but refrig


The freezer get the first crack at cooling and combination units have a fan and adjustable vents to steal some of the cooling capacity for the refrigerator. The vent are normally located in the back of the refrigerator compartment and with these, you can balance the cooling capacity between freezer and fridge. I recommend you swap your thermometer back and forth until you get the balance you want; typically the freezer should be at 5 degrees F or below and the fridge at 35-40 degrees F. Adjusting the control for temperature and having the vents set to supply the cold air you want in each compartment should give you the range you want in each.

Freezer not getting cold enough to freeze.


First culprit could be a refrigerant leak and needs to be charged. If the evaporator is frozen solid it won't push enough sub zero air to freeze. Call a trusted ac&or repair man

My freezer is hot!


It is normal for the freezer or fridge walls to be hot sometimes, some important points are to make sure that there is enough ventillation around the fridge/freezer, especcially the back, so that air can circulate around it freely. Also maybe just check that there hasn't been anything fallen down the back blocking the vent, and that there isn't a dust collection or anything. Otherwise as far as I know this is normal.
