Question about Danby 10 cu. ft. / 283 liter Chest Freezer DCF1019W

1 Answer

Does not keep a stable temperature after only a week the veggies are frosted up. also the light at the base, not sure but I guess its just a power indicator is sometimes on and sometimes not. We have had it in two different rooms on two different circuits so I'm sure its not a power problem. Seems slow to react to temperature fluctations,

You got two problems fisrts is a switch malfuntion getting hung up or sticky door not shutting properly. For the light. Second I am going to go with a worn or leaky seal. That is causing the frosting.

Why do both green light and orange light stay on all the time?


Without knowing much about Frigidaire , I would say at a guess that the green light would mean there is power on and the orange would be that the temperature isn't down to what you have selected yet. Most freezers have these 2 lights or a display showing the same. Check that the freezer hasn't frosted up and the food has frozen correctly. If you have a thermometer, most domestic freezers should run at around -18 degrees celcius. If its a larger type for long term storage, the freezer would normally run at around -20.

My freezer stopped freezing. It is running, but the food inside is not frozen solid. The electronic controls on the front are set at 0 degrees but keep flashing ff.


Can be a number of things, but the easy ones to check are;

Check that the door is closing properly and is not being pushed open by frost just inside the door or badly packed food.

Check the grills on the condenser for fluff and dust. This is generally found on the rear, or underneath hidden by a slotted grill.

If they are OK, then you need to make a service call as the fridge may need topping up with refrigerant. Could also be a fault with the defrost system sticking.

Electrolux engineer says the following

Based on the symptoms you are describing it sounds like the temperature control is in the OFF position. When this occurs the temperature control turns off the compressor, but does not disconnect the power to the light bulb or other electronics. Let's try activating your freezer by pressing the UP arrow until display shows "4" or desired setting. Allow 24 hours for temperature to stabilize. For future reference you can lock the control to keep from accidently changing the temperature setting. I hope these troubleshooting tips help you in some small way. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if the unit's status has changed successfully.

Frigidaire upright model #MFU20F3GW8- Food not freezing


Check and clean the air cooled condenser for dust and dirt. Check and make sure the fan in back, on the bottom behind a removable panel, is operating. After cleaning the condenser replace the panel.
Also you stated there is no frost anywhere. Did you check the back wall of the freezer for frost buildup. If not check it and if there is frost there your defrost system is not working and the frost has stopped air circulation.

Freezer not keeping things frozen


Hi Jody,
The only thing you give me that would allow me to solve this issue, is based on the fact that the freezer is getting warmer, and fresh food section is staying cold. So, knowing nothing more than that, I must sadly say that you need a new refrigerator to solve this issue 100%, as it sounds like you have a failing compressor, or a slow leak in the sealed system. Both scenarios are terminal.
