Frigidaire uprite freezer won't cool

We just sold a Frigidaire freezer to a friend. We used it for 5 years and it worked fine. When we moved 3 years ago we unplugged it and it's been sitting in our garage unused. They plugged it in 2 days ago and it won't cool. Do you know the problem and is it worth fixing?

    Was it laid down any at all during transportation ? If so , did you wait 24 hrs. before plugging it in ? If laid down , ruined if not waiting 24 hrs.

Moved. freezer worked but won't work at new location.

Hi friend, thank you for your post!

I understand that your Frigidaire freezer is currently not working in the new outlet. I would adjust the temperature to a lower setting to see if that would start the compressor to start cooling. Is your appliance getting power to it? If you could provide feedback regarding your appliance I would like to provide see what additional information I can provide you. -Matt

Frigidaire model ffu2065fw1 light and alarm works but the control module is blank???

Good Morning Friend,

I understand that the light and alarm are working fine on your Frigidaire freezer, model# FFU2065FW1. I also see that you are receiving power to the control module, however it is blank. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and try adjusting the temperature. 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 your appliances status has changed successfully.

-Best Regards-

I have a Frigidaire upright freezer. It lives in our garage. It hasn't been moved in 4 or 5 years. I have never had a problem until yesterday, when the ice cream decided to melt. We took most...

HI Not sure if you have checked . BUT i would check to make sure the cooling fan is clear and not blocked. Dust and dirt and cat hair and dog hair can collect in and around the vents and and keep it from cooling properly. If it is the type of condenser that is on the back of unit then disregard.

"High wind" sound following defrost.

Freon running through the feon lines can make some odd noises, usually a gurgling or higher pitched noise. If your freezer works fine with no more strange noises, then don't worry about it. If you have temperature problems or continue to have abnormal noises, then see if your freezer has the 5 year sealed system warrantee that most freezers have. If it does, and it is under 5 years, then call Frigidaire to come out to check it out for free. If it is out of warrantee you will need to live with it or replace the freezer, since a freon sealed system repair is very high. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

After being unplugged for one year, my Frigidaire 5 cu. ft. / 142 liter Chest Freezer FFC05M0A turns on, but does not get cold. What is the problem?

It's probable that you've lost refrigerant in the cooling system. Unfortunately, leaks in those systems can be hard to find so check your warranty to see if the labor is still covered.
