Will 3.74cu.ft. freezer hold 95lb of food?


Hi Trish:
1 cubic foot of water weighs 62.4 pounds so if you had 3.74 cubic feet of water (not frozen) it would weigh just over 233 pounds.
Most of the frozen veggies you put in a freezer have air space and the specific gravity (weight per cubic foot) is quite a bit less than water. Meats are closer to the same weight per cubic foot as water, but you still have air spaces between the packages.
I'd guess that you could get 95 lbs of food in it but you would have to pack it very carefully.

Tip

Making more room in your freezer


Although plastic containers are certainly convenient for storing frozen foods, freezer bags can actually save room. Place your cooled soups, stews, or fresh fruits and vegetables in a zip freezer bag. Close the zip top almost all the way. Then gently press out the remainder of the air and finish zipping the top shut. Place your freezer bag on a flat surface such as a small baking sheet and place the sheet in the freezer. After a few hours, check the contents of the bag. If they are frozen, remove the baking sheet and stack your thin bags, saving space and saving time when you're ready to thaw the contents. Thinner items thaw in less time.

Frigidaire freezer LFFU14F5HWN fan not running or cooling


Hi djgecko - Here are a few simple troubleshooting tips that may help you resolve this issue:



· First check clearances around your freezer. There must be adequate space around a freezer with a static condenser so that air can circulate properly. Proper clearances include 1" at the back and 3" on top of the unit.


· Examine your doors. If the doors have been opened too often or for too long, this may have allowed warm air to enter the freezer. Make sure to shut the door completely and be sure not to keep the door open for too long. Even leaving a door slightly open can allow too much warm air intake. Make sure the freezer is level and keep food and containers from blocking the door closing.


· Check the door seal. You do this by placing a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet, double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything that may be stopping it from closing. If nothing is stopping the door from closing then replace the gasket. (Most appliance owners can easily do this without any tools or sealant.)



· Check to see if the condenser is dirty. A dirty condenser cannot release heat efficiently into the surrounding air. Cleaning the condenser may be necessary, more if you have animals in the house. If you have condenser coils, they should be wiped occasionally with a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust. The condenser coils should be wiped occasionally with a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust.


· Check for any obstructions to the vent to ensure proper air flow. If the vent is blocked, the air in the freezer will not get cool.



· Double check the freezer control. If the freezer control is set too warm, set freezer control to a colder setting and allow 24 hours for temperature to stabilize.



If these assessment measures prove to be ineffective, I would strongly suggest contacting an authorized service technician who would be better able to assist you in the diagnosis and repair of your unit. You can often locate an experienced technician in your area by going to the manufacturer website.

The freezer is in my garage and it is about 90 degrees. Sides of freezer are very hot. Is this a problem.


It is not a good idea to put a freezer in an unairconditioned garage. The reason is because freezers are designed to operate in temperatures of a typical home. It's job is to keep the contents below freezing. When it is in unconditioned garage, it has to work harder in the summer to maintain that temperature. So it will get very hot in these conditions and will use a lot of energy to keep your food cold than if it was in an airconditioned space. As working is such a tough environment, don't expect it to last as long as if it was in an airconditioned space. Hope this helps you.

Not freezing


Either the defrost circuit has failed or the refrigerant is low - my money is on the defrost circuit.

Most defrost circuits have three main parts:

1) defrost electric heating coil
2) defrost terminator
3) defrost timer.

The heating coil and terminator are in the freezer compartment - behind a protective panel. The heater is usually piggy-backed on the freezer coil and the terminator is in contact with the freezer coil to detect its temperature. The defrost timer is a simple assembly of a clock motor with switch contacts that can be located anywhere the manufacturer desires. The timer turns on or enables the defrost circuit every 8 or so hours for up to 30 minutes give or take.

When the timer has enabled the defrost cycle, the cooling mode ceases; the compressor shuts off and power is sent through the terminator to the heater. The heater warms and melts any ice build up on the freezer coil. The water drips to a pan and flows down the tube to a pan under the fridge - where it is evaporated off. The heater warms the freezer coil until either a) the timer returns to cooling mode or b) the terminator senses a preset rising temperature on the freezer coil. Once either condition is present, power is interupted and heating stops. The compressor is energized through the adjustable thermostat in your fridge. Since it is warm, the compressor turns on and cooling begins.

If any of the components listed above (1,2 or 3) have failed, the defrost cycle never warms the freezer coil and the ice never melts to clear the freezer coil as intended. Air can not be circulated through the freezer coil since it is choked with ice, so even though the compressor runs, the fridge and freezer spaces never get colder. The adjustable thermostat never sees the temperature you've set so the compressor never shuts off.

Water dripping in the fridge is melting ice from the freezer space - as the freezer is not getting colder - only the protected space around the freezer coil is.

To fix this, you'll have to get the service manual or schematics for the fridge to determine where the parts are located and do some troubleshooting with a multimeter after disassembling the freezer compartment and wherever else to access the timer if needed. This is not a good first appliance repair job for a DIYer due to the danger of refrigerant and testing live electrical parts in closed in spaces.

I hope this helps.

Icemaker Waterline has Bacteria in it


This bacteria (for most of us) is not harmful. Ive never heard of anyone becoming sick from this stuff but I suppose someone might have an allergy. I see it in Ice Machines that are in restaurants all the time. It seems more prevalent in ones that do a lot of baking where yeast or Bread is used a lot like Bakeries Pizza and Hamburger fast foods...places.
Do you store a bread doe in your refrigerator? The air communicates with the freezer air. This is how its transferred. Clean the reddish stuff out again. Clean and wipe the outer containers and the walls and ceiling and under crisper in the refrigerator. Then if your going to store anything that you use with yeast or other types of activator that puts off CO2 (I E Baking soda or power?) double bag it in plastic bags. See if this solves your problem. If the stuff comes back it must be in your water supply. Are you on a treated water supply?

Hope this helps if so please rate me accordingly and good luck.

There is freezer burn on chicken in plastic packages


Hello
Welcome to Fixya
My name is Huum,

You need to use good freezer bags and not just plastic bags in the freezer.
And use these products witin six months..
When you put food into a plastic container for the freezer.
you need to burp the container.
That means to hold it with two hands and with one hand raise the corner of the lit a tiny bit while with the other hand you press down on the center of the lid and close the corner quickly so as to have burped out most of the air in the container. a little like a vacuum packed container.
So less air is in the container to cause condensation inside which is the frost you are getting
