If you are getting some cooling the 2 most common suspects are the door and refrigerant leak.

Check to make sure the door/lid is closing all the way and the seal is good. You can put a piece of paper or dollar bill between the seal and cabinet there should be some resistance to pulling the paper out all around the seal.

If the door is not the issue and this is not a frost free unit ( I would need the complete model number from the product to be sure) then the next most likely culprit is that the refrigerant has leaked from the system or the compressor has become inefficient and can no longer circulate the refrigerant. A new compressor replacement would run around $400.00

Ok, upright freezer, frigidaire, read -12 after power outage but working ok..when I tried to reset temp to 0, light went off, freezer went off, front display reads 56..any ideas?


Thank you for your post, Cynthia!

Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire freezer is not cooling properly and is now displaying the temperature of 56. It sounds like your freezer is not on, even though it has power the compressor is not turned on. I would suggest pressing either the down or up arrow three times within five seconds. That should power on your compressor and it should start cooling properly. I hope this is helpful and if you should need further assistance please feel free to reconnect. -Matt

Hello my freezer is not cooling properly and the defrost timer is . making a loud buzzing noise. Please help


Your freezer compartment will freeze up and not cool properly if the defrost timer does not allow the unit to go into its self defrosting mode to get rid of the ice that serves as an insulator.

Replace the timer.

I have a Artic Air White Reach In Freezer. It is not blowing cold air from he top where the cold air comes in. Freezer was at 60 degrees F. I turned the defrost switch to make sure it wasn't in...


Is the freezer itself getting cold.To blow cold air.the freezer should get cold/friezed.the cold air blows from freezer to fridge side.first the freezer side gets cold, then when the freezer side gets enough cool to its set cooling temperature, at that time the defrost cycle starts.In defrost cycle the fan in the freezer starts running and the cool air from freezer starts going to fridge side.There is a ventilation passage between fridge and freezer from where this cool air passes.---------------- If in your case, the freezer is getting proper cold, but its not blowing cold air from freezer to fridge, then possibility is that, there is a blockage in ventilations.But if ventilation its clear, then its defrost problem.First try manual defrost reset procedure. The procedure is as follows: ---- First unplug the unit from main power outlet. Then empty whole unit completely. Then keep both the doors open. Wait for 24 hours. All the ice collected on the coils and in the freezer section will get melted. Clean the water from the sections. Then Connect the power cord of the unit to main power outlet after 24 hours/.Then set the temperature to normal in both fridge and freezer section. It will take near to 4 hours to get run in its proper cooling cycle. Then check, if the problem returns again. Then its defrost board problem. ------------------------- BUT if in your case, the freezer section itself is not getting cold, then the problem is compressor related.The compressor is the part which cools the freezer frost.In the compressor, there is a refrigerant to cool the freezer.If the compressor gets weak or the refrigerant gets low, then it will not cool the freezer, if the freezer is not cool then it will blow warm air from freezer to fridge, in defrost cycle.In that case, the compressor is faulty and its the cause of problem.------------ So you will have to first check , that is your freezer getting cold or not.as per that you can start the troubleshooting.------------------

You can get required parts from from online sites like: --- www.repairclinic.com or from searspartsdirect online site. --------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Well, its good that it is still cooling, however since you cannot adjust the temps, you do still have a problem, and one that may include the unit fails to cool properly.

Not cooling


make sure the compressor and all the fans are running. With the condenser at the top of the unit, you will be able to see the condenser fan and you should be able to hear and feel the compressor running.

Check for the evaporator coil frozen up and not allowing adequate airflow. If it is frozen up, you will need to have it checked out as to why.


Just because the compressor was replaced doesn't mean the freezer was fixed properly. Have it checked out just to be safe. But in the meantime, you can do the checks yourself to hopefully gain more understanding of what is going on.

My frigidaire side by side isn't cooling properly,


Is your circulating fan working?
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
