Question about Freezers

1 Answer

My freezer sometimes cutoff, as though there is a short some where, but I do not see any problems with the electrical cord. It will turn back on. I didn't notice until it was too late that it had been on and off again. Can you give me some direction?

It probably is in defrost mode when this happens.

Why is my Hoover A Class upright freezer alarm light constantly on


1) It could be a short. 2) The thermo sensor that turns the light on could be defective and needs to be replaced.

FF 6 code


What is the model number?This error code FF indicates a problem with the main control board. When the power cord is disconnected for 30 seconds and then reconnected, it resets the board. Sometimes this procedure corrects the problem and sometimes it does, for only a short period of time. Usually in this case, the main board will need to be replaced.

Frigidaire freezer has ice accumulating and not freezing properly. Ice cream will not freeze.


Try turning the temperature control to off, unplug the electrical power cord from the power outlet, defrost the appliance, clean the condenser, plug the power cord into an electrical outlet, set the temperature control to a low setting, lay a thermometer in the freezer for a few hours and see what happens to the temperature in the machine.
Check the integrity of the seal of the door gasket by seeing how the door seal will hold a slip of paper in various locations along the freezer door gasket. A loose hold on the slip of paper shows an area where hot moist air can get into the freezer and cause ice build up.

Electrical shock everytime I touch the metal..


The problem is simple, the solutiion is difficult. There is a direct short somewhere in the system. If you remove the bottom front grill, you will see where the electricity comes into the unit.From that point forward a bare hot wire is touching the frame of the freezer. If you have a continuety tester, you may be able to find the problem with the power off. This is a time consuming situation and if you are not familiar with electrical circuits, it may be beyond what you are willing to tackle. You will have to isolate each circuit to determine which circuit has the short. One place to start is with the power cord itself. If you have continuety between the ground wire and either of the two hot wires, if 220 volt unit, the problem may be in the cord. If not continue to check the circuits from hot wire to ground. You may be able to disconnect the light circuit from the main power supply to see if the short is there. I have traced shorts for hours before finding a burned wire. Good luck.

My GE freezer stopped cooling. I turned it off,


Hi
I think the problem you are experiencing might be due to the temperature control.
1. Check if the temperature control is off if you dont hear the freezer operating.

2.If you do not see an interior light,when you open the door,then make sure the freezer is properly plugged into an electrical outlet.

3.Move the temperature level to a colder level if the freezer is not cold enough.Warm weather can also be a factor.

4.Find the condenser and check to see if it needs to be cleaned. The condenser is located behind the decorative paneling at the bottom of the freezer.

5.If it doesnt work still then contact a technician.
GOODLUCK

Freezer fan on compressor off


They make generic "compressor packs" to solve these. Your capacitors and relay and parts that support the compressor operation went out.

If you're really really like just the temp overload switch went and you can jumper bypass it. It usually looks like a piezo electric type of disc connected right onto the comp case itself.

But you're right with the DT, the motors go out on them a lot. They are usually for 4/6/10/12 hours depending on make and model. Sometimes the contacts go So if you could isolate them... they're on the larger side and will go from the power to the compressor. Use a jumper and test for a complete circuit to the plug and through the compressor before trying it.

By law all freezers and ovens have to have a schematic diagram on them. Often it it in a little plastic package and sometimes just wallpapered to the inside of a large piece of sheetmetal in back.

Good that you know how to use a meter!

Freezer not working


Hi,
  • Make sure the freezer is plugged in
  • Check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker
  • Test the power outlet for voltage
  • Inspect the electrical cord for damage
  • Eliminate use of an extension cord, if any is being used
  • Check the outage votageIf power is reaching the electrical outlet, trace the freezer wiring and test components as you go. Either there is a short, which must be located and repaired, or the freezer has sustained electrical damage.
Thanks.

Hoshizaki model number f450maf


If there is an electrical short in the machine it may very well be the compressor that has failed, burnt out or internally shorted. You need to call a service tech.
