Freezer lights but wont come on

Our freezer has been unplugged for about six months. Its only about 18 months old and worked fine. We have plugged it back in to use again and now it wont come on. The light comes on but its dead silent. Have tried changing the settings several times but nothing. What could it be?

Frigidaire ffhi7f7hw stopped working, the controls are not respomding, the display reads "OF" seal is okay freezer is level, and the compressor wont kick in, this unit is only six and a half years old


Start by unplugging and cleaning it gets dusty of course then they cant circulate air, also if your freezer has too much stuff the air cant circulate an they sometimes over heat, did you notice it running all the time before it quit, was the temp good need more details after you first clean the bottom andunder neath, un plug first hope this helps

Hotpoint fzfm151p. Bought a year ago. Worked fine up until I moved this month. My dad placed freezer in garage by mistake. Lights flashed (all) ever since it was in there. I've just moved it into the house...


Freezers have an electric motor within to pump the freezer gas around. Its possible the movement has caused a problem. Get ban appliance shop or tech to check it out.

What do the red light with abell shape which is lit up mean on my 18 year old tricity bendix freezer mean


It's a temperature warning that the freezer is no longer at the correct temperature. Check all is clean and working, door seal intact etc. If short of gas, probably time to get a new one!!! Bet it won't last 18 years this time though!

You refrigerator was made by Frigidaire Adaptive Defrost Controls Frigidaire Refrigerator Trouble Shooting and Diagnosing
On the initial plugin, or when power is restored to the fridge after a power outage:
If terminating thermostat is open, the fridge enters a compressor (cooling) cycle.
If the terminating thermostat is closed, the first defrost cycle occurs 1 hour
after initial plug-in.
Maximum defrost cycle time is 24 minutes.
Minimum time between defrost cycles is 6 hours. (compressor runtime)
Maximum normal clock time between defrost cycles is 12 hours.
Maximum time between defrost cycles (in "vacation" mode) is 72 hours.
Vacation mode is not entered unless the door has not been opened in at least 24 hours.
Note that the ADC will only enter the defrost mode if the terminating thermostat is closed. If the terminating thermostat is open when defrost is initiated, the ADC board will wait for six minutes and then return to the cooling mode.
ASSUMING that the fridge has been on and running,
and the terminating thermostat is closed,
defrost is initiated by pressing the door (light) switch
at least five times within six seconds.
The defrost heater should start heating up within 8 seconds.
If the above procedure caused the heater to heat up, the ADC board is probably bad; replace it.
If the defrost heater does not heat up, test the defrost heater, terminating thermostat and cold control for continuity as follows:
Unplug the fridge from the wall. Unplug the ADC board from its connector.
Test the connector for continuity between the following leads:
Defrost Heater = DEF TERM (blue) to DEF OUT (brown).
Terminating Thermostat = DEF TERM (blue) to NEUTRAL (lt blue).
Cold Control = COLD CONTROL (orange) to L1 (black).
Replace the defective component.

FREEZER IS NOT FREEZING IT IS 18 MONTHS OLD. WE DEFROSTED IT AND IT FROZE AN ICE CUBE TRAY SO WE MOVED IT DOWN STAIRS PLUGGED IT N AND IT NOT FREEZING AGAIN????


It is possible to cause an air lock when moving an appliance by tilting it and then not allowing the refrigerent to settle before switching on. Try unplugging it and laying it on its side for a couple of minutes, then put it upright and leave it for 6 hours to settle, then plug it in again.

Freezer due to brown out then power restored now low temp alarm


The light should reset itself when the freezer gets to less then 18 degrees. If it is still above 18 degrees it will stay on. Now if it is cooler then 18 degrees then unplug the unit for 1 minute and plug it back in once you are sure that it is below 18 degrees. But do not rule out the thermostat. It could have blown out when the brownout happened. To test it jump the wires together and see if the freezer comes on and goes off

Freezer freezes and then thaws


check wiring into outlet and at breaker that feeds outlet. you may be losing high volts at or to the switch. if possible check power into the stat when the condition occurs. this will telll you if stat is bad or power into it aka the outlet is bad. you may be jiggling wires in the outlet enough to fix short term each time you replug to outlet or get a good heavy extension cord and plug in else where to seee if problem goes away.Good luck
