Question about Frigidaire 14.1 cu. ft. Upright Freezer (FFU14K0DW)

1 Answer

"High wind" sound following defrost.

My Frigidaire 14.1 cu. ft. upright freezer which I manually defrosted last evening kept me awake during the night with a repetitive "high wind" sound. The freezer is located in the bedroom. Is this sound normal when the freezer is recooling after a defrosting?

Freon running through the feon lines can make some odd noises, usually a gurgling or higher pitched noise. If your freezer works fine with no more strange noises, then don't worry about it. If you have temperature problems or continue to have abnormal noises, then see if your freezer has the 5 year sealed system warrantee that most freezers have. If it does, and it is under 5 years, then call Frigidaire to come out to check it out for free. If it is out of warrantee you will need to live with it or replace the freezer, since a freon sealed system repair is very high. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

I have an 11 cf upright freezer. it has been running most of the time or at least make a noise. and I just defrosted it. and its still doing the same thing. any comments?


Good Afternoon friend, thank you for your post!

I see that your Frigidaire freezer is making noise and you have recently defrosted it, but your freezer is still making the noise. Your freezer will make certain noises which are normal operating noises for the freezer.

The compressor is a high efficiency so you may hear it during start up and while running. Additionally, refrigerant circulating through your freezer can make a tapping sound or even a gurgling noise. I hope this has been helpful. -Matt

How can you tell by looking if a freezer is a manual defrost or self-defrosting type? Thanks


If you have freon lines running through your shelving, this is a manual defrost. If you have an evaporator fan motor blowing air in your freezer compartment this is a self defrosting model. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Sounds like the timer could be getting stuck and not releasing the defrost cycle. If you have to do it again, you should have the timer checked, or just replace it.
