We have a Frigidaire freezer that has a working light inside but has stopped freezing. Is there anything we can check to keep from loosing all of the items inside it?


I would check to see if the compressor is running(humming or making a continuous noise). The compressor is in the back of the freezer and approximately the size of a football.

If is not running but you do have power, there may be a problem with one or more of these:
The compressor
The Thermostat
The overload, relay, or capacitor
The defrost timer
The condenser fan motor

You might need to call a repairman.

Hello,I defrosted my electrolux chest freezer and now problem is power is on but not freezing,alarm light keeps coming and keeps bleeping every 2 minutes and goes off and on


Is the compressor running? if it is running, but there is no cooling, it is time to buy a new freezer.
If the compressor is NOT running, I would suspect the compressor start relay.
How did you defrost it?

Red light on bosh classixx fridge freezer


sounds like compressor has failed to start and overload is triggered(red light) it could be start capacitor fault or overload itself faulty .
If both of these items ok and compressor has power to it then compressor will require replacing.when you switch of refrigeration equipement the oil in the system will drain down to the lowest point and thats normally compressor and if its filled up the suction side of compressor it will cause compressor to lock up (hydraulic)

Hi there. I have Electrolux freezer EUU 6174. The problem is that the compressor is switching on and off for 5 seconds and the temperature is to hight. I can't store any food in the freezer. can u help me?


your problem is likely the starting capacitor .. that is a metalic part (about the size of a fist) that is mounted on the compressor or near it .. it will have wires going to the compressor .. the capacitors are not very expensive and usually easy to change but make sure the unit is unplugged .. you can either write the numbers down off the capacitor or remove it and take it with you to a parts place to get a match ... take a photo or draw a diagram so you know where the wires go .(they usually just plug in) . .. you can order one from electrolux (might be higher price) .. dont allow the unit to continue running with the bad starting cap since the compressor can be damaged eventually ... if you call a repairman .. then make sure you tell him its a bad starting cap so he can bring one wiith him and avoild a second trip .. give him the model number and numbers off the capacitor if you can ... often the capacitor is actually two capacitors in one can ... one is for the compressor and the other is hooked up to the fan ... in that case replacing one would also replace the other ..

Freezer working, fridge not working .hotpoint


Hello Sir, I think we need some more info about what section of the Fridge is not working. Let me assume that the Problem is that the Fridge is not cooling ( as you raised that point that the Freezer is working. If that is the problem, then there are 2 things that can be Faulty:-------
  • The compressor is bad or not working. In this case you need a new compressor or repair if the fault is repairable.
  • The Thermostat is bad or not working. In this case, call a Technician of the associated brand. They will repair or replace as needed.
Another thing, if the Fridge is fully not working, then the fault is in the capacitors or the Main Control Board. Kindly call a technician for the steps needed to rectify the issue.
Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

How to locate and replace defrost timer. Seems to stick in defrost mode.


Your unit is not a self defrosting freezer and consequently has no defrost timer. There are only four components required for cooling in your unit. The temperature control, behind the knob in the cabinet. The compressor at the back bottom. The start relay and overload in a box attached to the compressor. The run capacitor attached to the start relay. A failure of any of those will cause the compressor not to run.

Check the wall outlet to be sure you have power.

If the compressor IS running but not cooling, the compressor itself may be defective or the gas charge may have leaked out. Compressor and refrigeration problems are likely beyond your capabilities in terms of knowledge and equipment.

The temperature control may be tested by all connecting the wires of the control to ONE terminal after unplugging the freezer and marking down teh original locations of the wires. If the compressor runs and cools after this by-pass then change the control and return the wiring to the original locations.

If the above does not make the compressor run the next possibility is changing both the relay/overload assembly AND the run capacitor. If these fail to correct the problem you need a new compressor but you will likely NOT be able to return the parts replaced.

Good Luck
