The freezer will cycle on it's own timer regardless of how many times you open the door. Of course it will run more often if you use the door more often. If it is defrosting as it is reqired automatically and your food is remaing frozen than I wouln't worry too much about it. You can get the complete owners manual by typing in the model # (not the manufacturer) and beside the number space, then the letters" pdf." and the word "manual" after another space. Once the choices pop up disregard all the top "sponsored" sites and start watching for a URL with the letters"pdf." and the word manual with the manufacturers name included. There you will find and be able to download the complete owners manual. Good luck, Dana

We have an Arctic freezer, 8 years old and the temperature alarm has been sounding for the last fe(w days. We have emptied it and wonder if it fixable. What is the diagnosis! We pulled it out and c


It very well be just that the defrost element has quit working. I have numerous frigs where the only problem were these and the owners thought it was a compressor failure. When the defrost quits working the evaporator coil gradually freezes over preventing air flow; therefore, it no cools.

Try seaching on the internet for" 'your model' manual" (ie "???? manual" where ???? is to substituted for the actual model number of your freezer. You could also try the manufacturer's website.
or search directly on eg http://kitchen.manualsonline.com/manuals/device/freezer.html
I am sorry I can't be of help without the model number, often on the 'rating plate', a small metal sheet, which is itself often inside the freezer attached to the left wall as you look into it.

Freezer coil inside freezer box loads up rhyme ice preventing air flow. If I defrost the freezer it will work fine for a few weeks. I suspect there is a defrost timer, or humidity control that isn't...


There are three parts to all defrost systems.
1. Defrost Heater2. Defrost Timer3. Defrost Thermostat
Without a model number I could not look up a diagram or part numbers. I very seldom see a bad heating element. Most common is a bad defrost timer, second most common is the defrost thermostat.

How do you activate the flash defrost function on a Kenmore 16082 model? I can't find any flash defrost button.


Hi

Not all these models were fitted with a flash defrost plunger, if fitted it is inside the lid on the left hand side.
You will need to remove all the product from the freezer and store it elsewhere.
1. Pull out the flash defrost button
2. Put a chock of wood or similar to prevent the lid from closing (if the lid closes it will stop the flash defrost)
3. Wait until all the ice has melted then clean out the casing, some of these models have a drain plug in the base, (put a shallow tray under the outlet to catch the water) others you will need to mop out the water.
4. Push in the flash defrost button and wait for a couple of hours and then you can reload the freezer.

If there is no flash defrost button then follow the above instructions after you have emptied the freezer, all you need to do is switch off and unplug the freezer then go to 2. above. When finished plug back in and reload.

Regards

New freezer not cooling - temp @ 25 degrees and food is defrosted


It is probably the control board and since it's new it's still under warranty so a certified Frigidaire repair man will fix it without charge. There should be a telephone number with the paperwork you received when you bought it.

Look online and see if you can find an installer's manual. Sounds like the control board hasn't been set to your model yet.

Unplug the fridge overnight and defrost it completely. Ensure the thermostat is properly set.

If it does not restart normal function after you plug back, then there may be a fault concerning the digital control, in that case call the number listed on the owner manual.

you said the coil was freezing up? have you checked your defrost element? if your handy with a voltmeter put it on the "beeping mode" (disconnect the fridge's power first) and test the element if it beeps its good, and means that the defrost control isn't working it could be a timer or a board, also check the freezer fan rotate the blades if it dosen't rotate the fan is stuck. if the fans turns out o.k, the defrost thermostat is defective (thats the little metal ball type control befor the heaters).
