Question about Frigidaire Heating & Cooling

Open Question

How do I reset the EZ set controller in a Frigidaire upright Freezer Model FFU21F5HWN. It will not start compressor and fan, even after power reset. Thermistor was replaced and checked good.

If red or black leed to thermistor is disconnected then the compressor and fan will start. It is not in OFF mode. I ran diagnostics and fan and compressor both work. The defrost heater may be bad - hard to test the thermostat as it is inline with the heater/connected hardwired. I did check the heater coil using a needle to by pass thermostat and it is about 15 ohms. So I believe it heater to be good. Thermostat would not close when cooled, it may be bad. Defrost time does clock through at 30 minutes. Not sure if the defrost heater not working will prevent fan and compressor from starting in automatic mode?

If it's cutting off at too high a temperature it is a good possibility the probe is faulty. However if the compressor is not cutting off at all, suspect short of gas.

Ok, upright freezer, frigidaire, read -12 after power outage but working ok..when I tried to reset temp to 0, light went off, freezer went off, front display reads 56..any ideas?


Thank you for your post, Cynthia!

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire freezer is not cooling properly and is now displaying the temperature of 56. It sounds like your freezer is not on, even though it has power the compressor is not turned on. I would suggest pressing either the down or up arrow three times within five seconds. That should power on your compressor and it should start cooling properly. I hope this is helpful and if you should need further assistance please feel free to reconnect. -Matt

Lost manual for my Fridgeidare upright freezer 20.5 with the controls on outside. what does 0F mean. and if I need to set it ,we just moved how do I set it?


Hey friend, thanks for your post!

From my understanding you have recently moved your Frigidaire freezer and it is now displaying the "OF". Normally, that stands for off you should be able to press the "Up" or "Down" arrow three times within five seconds to start your compressor. If you still need a copy of your manual could you provide me with your model number? You can locate your serial tag (which lists your model number) on the inside wall of your freezer. I hope this has been helpful. -Matt

Hello Michael - Sounds like the temperature control was accidently turned OFF. When this occurs the temperature control turns off the compressor, but does not disconnect the power to the light bulb or other electronics. Let's try activating the freezer by pressing the UP arrow until display shows "4" or desired setting. Allow 24 hours for temperature to stabilize. For future reference you can lock the control to keep from accidently changing the temperature setting. 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 the unit's status has changed successfully. Thank you.

I have a Frigidaire upright freezer. Power coming into freezer. Light inside works, and the temp setting on the door works. Not getting any power through the system to the compressor.


Contact a professional. The power supply source needs to be testing to the compressor and see if the power is fine, or if the compressor is faulty and not drawing needed power.

I have a frigidaire upright frost free freezer model number is FFU2065FW3 I put in a new electronic temperature control Board and when I plugged the freezer back in, the control board was flashing "E" and...


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.

I have a frigidaire freezer upright model#ffu20f9gw3


Without any additional info, there are a lot of possibilities:
1. Condenser coil (underneath unit) is dirty and clogged.
2. Compressor is failing. (need A/C tech)
3. Metering device is clogged. (need A/C tech)
4. Refrigerant charge is low. (need A/C tech)
5. Door seal is broken (frost will form around door).
6. Defrost heaters are stuck on (replace defrost timer located underneath unit at front).
7. Condenser fan has failed (underneath freezer on back).
8. Evaporator fan (inside fan) has failed (ice will form on cooling coil).

This should get you started...

If this helps you, please select YES to the first two ratings questions. Thank you, and Good Luck.

My freezer's defrost systems runs constantly


i dont think so i would look at the compressor kicking out on thermal overload or a faulty thermostat thermostats have two settings cut in cut out your cut in could be bad and not turning the compressor on till the temp reaches melting temps now if your hearing a click buzz then you need to look at the compressor and make sure the compressor fan is running but its not a defrost promblem

If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one of these:

The compressor,The Thermostat,The overload, relay, or capacitor,The defrost timer,The condenser fan motor.
Try to troubleshoot each of these componet one after the other using eliminating method.
That may solve your problem.
