Frigidaire 25' chest freezer alarm goes off eventhough it is very cold

My freezer alarm goes off eventhough the temperature is registering about -20F. I have tried adjusting the thermostat to the lowest possible setting but the temp holds around -20F and the alarm still goes off. Can someone help me out?

    Do you have any recommendations on how to change? Is this something I can do myself?

    AFFC2528 is the model number. One interesting thing I noticed is that if I turn off the freezer until the temp goes up to about -5F and then turn it on, the alarm does not go off, until the temp goes below -15F....don't know if that makes the diagnosis different.

Hello Judy, thanks for your post!

From my understanding the alarm on your Frigidaire commercial chest freezer continues to go off. You have explained that the temperature is at zero degrees. It sounds like you could have a potential issue with your thermostat or sensor. I would recommend having a professional technician come out to properly diagnosis your freezer to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Good luck. -Matt

The alarm keep going on with no reason on my frigidaire ultrafreeze

Hi michael, thank you for your post!
I understand that you are having a challenge with your Frigidaire freezer's alarm continuously going off. From what you are describing it could be a possible problem with your control panel or sensor. Typically the alarm will go off when the freezer senses a high temperature inside, I would recommend having a professional come out to properly diagnosis your appliance and repair it to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

My chest frigidaire freezer starts beeping about an hour after I plug it in and I can't get it to stop what do I do

Does the freezer get cold? To what temperature? Is the lid closed tight? What do you have the temperature set at? Is it set to zero or below? Is it an automatic defrost freezer? If so, have you set the auto defrost to off? If you turn thee temperature all the way to the lowest setting, does the beeping stop after awhile? Usually beeping means a lid/door ajar or a temperature problem.

Ambient temperature

This is true of all HVAC type systems. The condensor releases heat from the expansion of the coolant. As long as the temperature is lower than the exchanged heat then there is no impact to efficiency.

What is the coldest recommended temperature a chest freezer can withstand in an unheated garage?

Hi there

It should have no problems down to -30 deg C or -20f

But it may sweat on the outside if it is damp and cold, which can cause corrosion of the casing.

Below the above temperatures the thermostat will not operate

I am just trying to find out what are the recommended settings for a 8.8 cu. ft. energy star rated Frigidaire chest freezer.

I would suggest getting a fridge/freezer thermometer and use that to set the temperature. They are marked with the recommended temperatures. Also many times the setting on the nob in the freezer are not very consistent so it is better to actually set the temperature by turning the knob up or down to reach the desired temp on the thermometer

Chest freezer not freezing

home refrigeration units are not designed to work in low temperature areas. where temps will drop below 45f so that is your problem. this is listed in your owners manual if you want to verify. thx peyton
