Question about Freezers

1 Answer

Freezer temp I can't get the freezer temp on my Arctica Profile PSC23NGNA to drop below about 15 deg F. Refrigerator side seems to be working OK. I took off the panel at the bottom in the back to vacuuum dust off the condenser, but I could only access the back side of the condenser, which is a cylinder. It was very warm back there, and there was not much dust.

    I vacuumed the condenser and around it, and freezer temp is down to +2 deg F, with desired temp set at -2 deg F. Yes, condenser fan is running, but not terribly fast. It seems like it should be turning at a higher rpm.

    My wife said she had it down to +2 last week, then temp went back up.

    I'm going to have a service call. No ice buildup on back wall. I don't want to take the inside paneling apart. I think the water inlet valve needs replacing as well, as there is a drip from the water dispenser in freezer door, so we'll kill two birds with one service call.

    Thanks for your help, Woodchuck789.

Was the condenser fan back there running. It should be when the compressor is.
Is the fan in the freezer running. Check for ice buildup on the back wall and behind the back wall cover on the evaporator coil. Heavy ice here would be defrost problem.

Frigidaire freezer runs a lot. Located in garage. In summer runs almost non-stop. Currently outside temps are below 0 deg F and freezer still cyles frequently. Have replace the freezer tstat. Defrost...


Yup, these timers have a tiny clock motor that can get lint on them, causing motor failure, should be simple replacement. Refrigerators in cold garages run more to regulate their temperature below 45 degrees.

Norlake freezer 6x6 not freezing enough


Normally freezers are kept at zero. Most health departments will not allow the temp to be higher than plus 10. If you want to store ice cream, you need to be at minus 10 degrees to minus 15 degrees.

let me know if I can be of any further help.

Freezer @ +28 deg/appears common problem B 1st 2 answer right....


Model numbers of Kenmore , starting with 253. are made by Frigidare . The compressor probably has a valve out , either the high-side , or low-side . Probably the low-side valve is bad , therefore , the high-side will pump but not get the freezer as cold as it should be . Both sides have to work . Low-side helps pull the refrigerant thru the system , while the high-side pumps pressure thru the system .

Side by side refrigerator is not cold. Bottom freezer is.


if the freezer is cold and the fridge is not then it can be several things. The freezer could have a bunrt out defrost heater, defrost timer faulty, fan not working in the freezer??. all of these things will stop your fridge getting cold, but your freezer will still be around minus 9 deg c. you wont get any air into the fridge as the coil in the freezer is prob all iced over. Dont worry about the heat on the door frame as it is only the anti sweat heater

Top mounted freezer on refrigerator not working


Move the refrigerator to a room that is at least 50 degrees F.

Temps on most refrigerators are regulated by the fresh foods temp. If your garage is let's say 35 degrees, the fresh foods temp will most likely never raise enough to turn the refrigerator on. With the refrigerator never running, the freezer compartment will warm to 35 degrees, resulting in everything melting. Even if garage is a bit warmer, say 45, the refrig will not run long enough for the freezer to maintain a low enough temperture. If the garage temp falls to below freezing, say 20 degrees, the food in the fresh foods compartment will freeze. (outdoor beverage dispensers have internal heaters to prevent product from freezing !) Please don't rate this if not a Fix-Ya for you, as anything else lowers my score.
