Question about Frigidaire Freezer FFU1764

1 Answer

Power outage any time that there is a power outage, the lights come back on, but the compressor does not and I get a Blinking E on the setting display.  This little "feature" has cost me about $1000.00 in food.  if I would have known about this "feature" from frigidaire. I would have paid an extra $50.00 and bought a maytag.

I would say that is not a feature, it's a problem. Sounds like the control board has no battery backup of any kind to retain settings in case such an outage occurs. If still under warranty, have it fixed. A refrigerator should be trusted to be left unattended, if this has been this way from new, you should have complained the first time it happened. If they say that it's in the design and all of these do this, perhaps there's a class action waiting to happen.

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.

Our fridge compressor won't run after a power outage, can it be reset?


compressors use a small start / run capacitor to start the compressor
modern fridges do not like spikes from power outages and many power boards and electronic components fail because of this and I am inclined top use a surge protector before the fridge cord plug
I went google and typed in --fault code 88-88 for samsung fridge model rf26aewp and the first site up is error codes /messages/ blinking

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

Hello I have an HMCF7W1 Magic Chef freezer, after a power outage the power light comes on, but the Run light will not turn on and everything is thawed. What can I do?


Perhaps the power outage, was caused by your freezer?
When you think a reset would help, the run light should come on, after a little while. But perhaps only the thermostat is defect.
Be aware there can be so many causes, and none has to be related to the power outage, for your freezer not to work.
It would be virtually impossible to see what is wrong, from a distance. Better try to bring the food to a working fridge and call a tech to solve the problem.

How to reset a samsung refrigerator model number rs261mdpn aftthea power outage


http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/Samsung-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/DA41-00669A/0046/401/Model-RS261MDPNXAA/1482/0165000


this is the control board you will need for your model if unplugging the unit for 5 minutes doesn't fix the problem. If they are LED lights, then I point my finger at this. This is a plug and play board with molex connectors. Very easy to install with unit unplugged. You can manually reset the display and check for error codes by holding the top left and top right button on your user interface for 5 seconds in unison FOR 5 or more seconds after all the lights flash.

How do you get compressor running after power outage?


Hello AnnArborMom, thank you for your inquiry!

I would recommend you adjusting the temperature to a lower setting to see if that would start your compressor to cool. If that is not successful I would contact a professional to come and properly diagnose your appliance. It could be that the power outage shorted the main control board or relay. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Tsf-49sd Had a power outage for a few minutes. When the freezer turned back on it became unable to get below 31 degrees F and we need it -5 degrees


Check your fans make sure they are running also make sure your defrost heater is not on at the same time as the compressor. Also make sure all lights are shutting off when you close the doors

Amana freezer has run well for 40yrs. Had weather related power outage for 6 days. Now freezer won't run. Is using about 125 watts, compressor is hot, pressing ear to cabinet reveals "something" is going...


Hi,
What often happens in an outage like that is you get a rapid on/off cycle about three times or so... This puts extra stress on the compressor because the pressures do not have time to equalize before the compressor tries ot restart. Considering th age of your compressor either that or a low voltage situation was the final straw for your compressor and it died...
The best you can do at this point would be to allow the compressor to completely cool, as in unplug it for 12 or more hours, then try to plug it back in to restart it, it sometimes works...

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Kenmore freezer quit working after power outage


simple stuff, you have a compressor a stat and power. check the receptacle to be sure you have 120 volts . then check the compressor with stat at max cold setting to see if you have 120 volts at compressor. if you do then compresssor is bad =new compressor or new unit. if no power to compressor then stat is bad= new stat. i always recomend new unit cause new stat or compressor wont fix a freon leak.... i have replaced a few compressors that died soon after due to a freon leak. good luck...
