Freezer is not cold enough.

We have dial type thermostat with no numbers or indicators on it, it is set at normal, but the freezer is not cold enough. It has always been cold enough until just recently... Which way do I turn the dial to make it cooler?

Turning it to the right will make it colder. It will only regulate the temp. by few degrees, so if your thinking there will be a big change there won't be.

What number should i set the upright freezer control


Thank you for your inquiry, friend!

Normally it is recommended to set your Frigidaire upright freezer to zero degrees. It is your option to make it cooler if you choose too. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt

FREEZER THERMOSTAT


Sounds like the thermostat is not working. Mechanical and electronic thermostats can go bad and cause the freezer to continue running no matter what setting is set on thermostat. When this happens the only setting that will work is turning the temperature setting to off. What is the model number on your freezer? Sea Breeze

Freezer & fridge not cold enough


Please check the Thermostat switch settings. Try to put it to max cool and then see the results. If it still does not cool the you have to check the refrigent. It is lee and leaking somewhere. Get a technician and get it charged up.

We have an imperial upright ''commercial grade'' freezer. The top shelf has 2 inches of ice on it. The rest of the freezer is not cold. Door seal is ok. freezer is currently unplugged and defrosting.


just to be sure that your door is sealing properly, put a flashlight into the freezer and turn off all of the lights in the room to see if there are any openings in the seal. Iam suggesting you this coz sometimes a small opening may pass our eyes easily....

if the door is sealing properly......
If this is the type of freezer where the shelves are the evaporator coils, the coolant goes through the shelves(tubing) and the formation of frost is normal and has to be manually defrosted.All the shelves should be as cold asd the top one. The fact that just one has any frost may indicate that it is low on freon. If this is the case you should notice that the freezer doesn't get cold enought just like you said... so check your freon levels.

This could also be because of the thermostat not sensing when the fridge reaches its set temperature and as a result of this the compressor will keep on running and build-up of ice will occur.

Follow the advices in the order prescribed above and you should be set

Not cold enough


Should be a thermostat with a black knob in the freezer. Usually they are marked 1-7 1 being the warmest and 7 the coldest. Usually clock wise + colder. Adjust by only 1 number per day. See how it responded the nest day. The set point is designated by a notch or arrow on the cover plate. ;)

Freezer temperature swings


the users manual does not cover this particular issue as to the temperature swing. I have seen some thermostats that are the "constant on" type that you are describing. No way of telling from the vague manual. As long as you are not storing ice cream for a long period of time, 0 degrees is usually fine for most home applications. Sorry I can not give you more info.

Temperature control


I have a danby mini fridge and freezer and noticed the same problem. The temperature dial has NO NUMBERS ON IT! it just has a strip that goes from light to dark blue. That's it. I looked in the manual and it doesn't say anywhere which way is colder...it makes sense that the darker the blue the colder the temperature but why keep us guessing?
