My C713 water cooled yogurt machine keeps locking and only works when cleaned but only for a few hours then it locks again. Does anyone know why?


The temperature of the product is too high. If the product either in the cylinders or the hopper goes above safe temperature for too long the freezer will lock until the product is removed and the unit is properly cleaned. I would guess it's the hopper temperature because I think you would notice if the product that's dispensed is above 40 degrees. Soft Serve Parts C713

Freezer in my refrigerator is not freezing some things like ice cream and ice pops solid


Get a freezer dial thermometer (about $5-10 at grocery or box store) and check the temperature, then adjust the freezer (NOT refrigerator) setting dial (usually just inside the top of the cold cut section) a number at a time colder and see how that changes the temperature.
Vegetables and ice cubes freeze hard at about 28-30 degrees F, so freezers are usually set at about 5-10 degrees F, and not above 15 for safety. However, ice cream that is high in cream content generally will be runny to about 25, and soft down to about 0-10, so you may need to set your freezer as low as zero degrees F.
The comment on cleaning the coils is very important - you should do that about yearly, or more often if you have shedding pets. Be gentle with them - you do not want to bend them, as they carry refrigerant fluid, and repairs are expensive. The coils can be under or on the back of the unit, and it is best to not only vacuum them out, but also to blow them out if possible before vacuuming - with compressed air hose if you have it, else with a cleaned-out shop vac on blow setting. Be sure after you blow it out that the fan (usually accessible from the back by removing a cardboard cover after disconnecting power) is not blocked by a clump of lint - it should spin freely. The compressor (roundish tank with wires and tubing coming out of it) should also be blown / brushed off, as lint accumulation makes it run hotter, which reduces freezing capacity.
Also - try putting your ice cream as low in the freezer unit as possible (cold air sinks), and as far back as possible so it does not warm up as much when you open the door. Side-by-sides are bad for this, because all the cold air pours out every time you open the door. You might also try packing something around the ice cream to reduce the effect of opening the door - like bags of frozen vegetables, for instance, or even a wrapped layer of cardboard (although that will also make it take longer to initially freeze).

Kenmore upright freezer. Ice cream soft. Food is cold. HELP!


Ice cream has to be colder than 0 degrees C /32 degrees F. You need a cheap thermometer If your Ice maker Ice is not sweating in the bin, -10 degrees F ice stops sweating. you need not to sweat the freezer untill your cheap freezer thermometer can be compared to -10 degrees F

New freezer set on 4. Runs a lot. Could we raise setting safely.


Yes you can raise the setting if you'd like. The rule of thumb is to raise it one number and allow it to adjust for 24 hours to see a change in internal temperatures. Freezers can run more for several reasons. One is the amount of product inside- the more the merrier. More frozen food will hold the temperatures longer. Another common issue is location, my own freezer is located in the garage at my house and runs quite a bit in the summer, as the temperature outside increases the lenght and frequency of the freezer running will increase. Freezers transfer the heat they remove from inside the box to the outside of the box, so the warmer it is outside, the longer they have to run to do the job.
Also be sure to keep a good eye on this, keep a thermometer in it and make sure you are not having to turn it way up to get it to "0 f" at least, as you may have a sealed system problem. Real ice cream (not fat free or sherbert) is a great indicator of temperatures- at 0 degrees f. real ice cream is firm but scoopable, 5 below and it's pretty hard, 5 above and is't starting to get soft on the outside.
Hope this was helpful to you!

Ice cream will not freeze, but will make ice cubes.


Actually, it's not as you think. Ice cubes are made between 0-4 degree Celsius and ice creams are frozen below -3 degree Celsius. Your freezer temperature may be between 0 and -3 degree Celsius and that is causing the problem. An ideal freezer should have temperature between -3 and -30 degree Celsius.

Ice cream and Cool Whip are soft but ham/chicken are hard


Freezer is not cold enough probably holding about 20 degrees. Try setting your temperature up for the freezer if that doesn't help you may have a problem that needs service.

Freezer temperature fluctuating way up and down. 0 recommended. 11 degrees right now. 18 earlier. Food defrosting. Ice cream soft. GE Profile bottom drawer freezer. Only 3-4 years old.


Your problem could stem from an issue with the defrost timer, the compressor or its attachments (e.g.: relay, capacitor, etc.), or the freezer/evaporator fan motor. Contact an appliance service company.

Ice Cream won't stay frozen it get's all soft and gross. Main things in the freezer stay frozen.


This is an easy one!!
Ice cream needs to be around -5 degrees to +5 degrees to stay frozen (or hard) if the freezer is at like 15 degrees the ice cream will be soft but the rest of the things like meat and ice cubes will be rock solid because anything lower than 32 degrees is freezing for those things.So you might wanna check to see if the fan motor is working and also make sure the condensor coil is free of debris.

Ice cream going soft


What is happening is that ice cream has a lower freezing point that water. Perhaps 5-10 degrees for ice cream. Now, the problem with the freezer is 1 of 3 things. 1. Make sure the air vent coming into the freezer is not blocked. 2. Check the thermostat setting and make sure it is on the coldest setting. You can always bring it back up when you get it colder. The thermostat may be going bad. 3. The freezer may be going bad (compressor or other componnets). If it is older than 12-15 years, then you may be better served getting a new one. This may mark the beginning of the end. Check these and let me know how you do.
