Freezer is not working to optimum capability. Meats and frozen foods harden, but ice cream and breads do not. I have the temperature control to almost maximum. Any ideas?

    Refrigerator has been charging for several hours.  Ice cream and baked goods are soft, but other items in freezer are ok.  Have turned up temperature control from 4 to 5.  No change.

My norfrost freezer c105e runs constantly


first thing to check and clean is the condenser coils and make sure they are clean and have good airflow.
Secondly, if your freezer is in a hot area (like a garage), it will probably run for very long cycle to overcome the heat load'Third, check the food temperature by the following indicators (only true for a deep Freeze):
Ice Cream - Solid as a rock
Meats Same as Ice cream
Bread - Firm and hard
If temperature is good and you insure good air circulation around the condenser coils, do not worry about the running time.

My freezer does not keep my ice cream hard, yet it freezes meats, etc. without a problem. What is wrong?


You don't note whether or not you've adjusted the thermostat. Ice cream (and juices) requires at least zero degrees, if not minus 5 degrees, for storage. Meats, fish, bread, etc. can become rock hard at much higher temperatures. Try setting the thermostat lower.

Orange light in front is flickering almost constantly. What might this mean? The food seems frozen -ice cream is fine as are breads and meats.


Hi,
It is normal for those lights ot flicker.. as long as the unit is working then do not worry about that...the light really is just showing you that you have power to the unit...

Freezer is no longer keeping ice cream solid/frozen


Ice cream is usually kept at -10 degrees to stay firm. Need to check temperature. Look at condenser coil for cleaning. This is usually the most simple and common issue. If not making the desired temp, and the temperature control is set for that temp, and compressor run constant, it is a refrigeration issue. If compressor does not run constant, then a control issue.

Defrosted freezer -


Melody, It appears that possibly either the kids accidentally turned the freezer off, or something being taken out/put into the freezer, got pushed into the control knob and caused it to turn off. (Just trying to help the kids avoid taking the full blame with that one!)

The good news is that your freezer is probably fine and just got turned off somehow. You can put it back to the middle setting and adjust it from there to get the coldness you want for whatever you're keeping in it, (meats, ice cream, veggies, etc.)

The indicator lights are to let you know that you have power going to the freezer and the other one lets you know that the freezer is working and the compressor is operating. I'd keep an eye on it for the next few days though, just to make sure that everything is working the way it should, just in case. You can take an old plastic milk jug (1 gallon size) and fill it with tap water and put it in the freezer on the middle shelf. If after 3-5 days, the temperature is staying cold enough, the jug of water should be fully frozen. You can also put in a load of bread and see if that freezes nicely after a day. If the above items are properly frozen after 1 and 3 days, then your freezer is working properly and the culprit was very likely, just the control knob getting turned off, somehow.

I'd also suggest that you might want to lock the freezer, if your's has one, to help minimize any chances of the settings getting changed, etc. Of course, if you've got ice cream and kid snacks stored in there, then your children will keep looking until they find the key anyway!

You should check any of the food items you had stored in the freezer and if they got defrosted completely, you'll likely have to toss it all out, the only exception is bread, (which is typically not much good once it's been frozen anyway), but can be used to "fill-up" the freezer to keep it operating efficiently when you don't have much stored in it. I usually just mark the bags of old thrift store bread with the date I put it in the freezer and toss it after a year.

Bread is an inexpensive way to load up the freezer so it runs better and helps save you some energy costs, even when you don't have much other higher priced food in it.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Ice cream soft


Ice Cream is the hardest thing to freeze in a fridge /freezer unit , you need a least 0 deg F
to harden ice cream. If the ice cream was satisfactory before the repair and the stat is set to max. it is possible you have an over charger refrigeration circuit.

My ice cream won't stay frozen in my freezer.


Hi: Meat and other frozen foods will be rock solid at 32degrees. Ice cream will be soft it needs 0degrees to be hard. It sounds like your freezer is above 0 degrees. You tried the adjustments. Make sure the coils on the bottom are clean. They will warm a ref if they are dirty. A coil brush from the hardware store or a air compressor (plan on dusting the house when done. Just vaccuuming the front isn't enough. That's an older model but one of the controls affects both the freezer and fresh food. When it's running turn one down; if it turns off the compressor it affects both. The other control is just an air balance, to direct how much air gets to each compartment. I hope this helps, Jeff

We have a Whirlpool gb22dk refrigerator freezer. The bottom freezer keeps meat frozen but will not keep sea food ice cream bread ect frozen. This fridge came with our house which we purchased 2 years ago...


1st.Check the freezer door gasket for any place it maybe torn or not making a 100% seal when you close the door.That would make temperature drop. 2nd.take off bottom kick plate so you can look under the refrigerator.Using a flashlight make sure there is not alot of lint / dust stuck on the coils .If there is remove it carefully and you will see temperature lower. PLEAS RATE THIS!
