I own a frigidaire model # CF-5D-L*2 manufactured in Feb. 1987 and it stopped cooling off. I've looked at the underside of it and don't see anything off the bat that would be wrong with it. Can you...


Hi,

Compressor is one reason why your freezer may not get cold. The compressor which is usually found at the back of the freezer helps to pump out gas/ cold air and the fan circulates this cold air in the freezer. If this compressor is knocked/defective, the freezer won't cool. Also, gas in the compressor sometimes get's finished and needs to be refilled. So, the compressor needs to be checked in a situation like this.

Fan problem is one of the most common reasons for the freezer to start failing, this is called "frost free failure." Ice can build up on the evaporator coils over time, and this ice builds up until it starts blocking the fan. The fan is responsible for circulating cold air throughout the freezer, so if it is blocked the freezer will not be able to freeze any food. You can usually check this by removing an access panel in the back of the freezer to inspect the coils. If ice is built up on the coils, a hairdryer can assist in defrosting them.

It's also possible that the fan is not running at all. If the fan is burned out or the motor isn't running, cold air can't circulate through the freezer and everything will melt. You can normally hear the fan motor switch on and off from time to time. Listen for it and if you can't hear it coming on for an extended period of time, the motor may need repair or replacement. The wires connecting to the fan may be the problem, preventing the fan from receiving electricity.

Several other problems could be keeping your freezer from freezing:

There could be leaks in one or several of the hoses in the refrigerator, which results in the cold air being lost instead of circulating properly throughout the fridge and freezer.

If you have the freezer so full that the cold air can't circulate, your food will thaw even though the freezer isn't malfunctioning. Always leave some space open in the freezer and try to not store food right up against the cooling vents.

The thermostat might have shorted out, which means the freezer can't accurately determine how cold it is. If this is the case, the refrigerator would probably not be working, either.

If your defrost drain becomes clogged, the water in the line will just refreeze over and over again, which could damage the lines as well as the fan. Always check the drain and make sure no sludge is building up in it if you have a self-defrosting refrigerator.

Always try to keep the freezer door closed for long periods of time. The more the door is opened, the more warm air is let in and cold air is released. If the door is opened frequently, the freezer could be warming faster.

Good luck.

My Viking Freezer is three years old. The problem is the constant roaring sound it makes. No one can sit in my kitchen, family room or living room for very long before the noise from this freezer gets on...


There are several fans on your unit one on the top with the compressors, one inside the freezer, and one at the bottom. If you open the freezer and the noise gets louder or stops then you know it is the evaperater fan. Sometimes the bearings start to go and they make louder noise. Also check on the back wall for frost you could have a frosting problem and the fan blade is hitting on the ice

Hi

No it shouldn't make the room cold except if you open it and cool air rushes out.

In fact it normally makes the room it is in hot.

Broke down after 3 years!! Any ideas on what wrong and how to fix it?


Hi Bill,
You will not like this repair at all. It is cheap and easy but usually really gross. So hold your nose and read on.
This time of year we have little visitors in our garages that like to find a warm place to cuddle up. They will crawl into the back of your freezer and find your warm compressor and start looking for places to build a house. While walking around they will eventually walk directly into the condensor fan and and usually they will not die, they will just be stuck in the fan blades. The heat that begins to build up will slowly cook the little critter and you will get a foul smell for a couple of days. Then you will notice the freezer has stopped cooling well. To repair simply remove the rat from the condensor fan and you got it fixed. In some cases the fan can burn out from the jam so you may need to replace it. I always hate to do this job, it is easy but who likes to handle a cooked rat??? Grossss.. Please dont forget to rate me and try to have a nice day.

Liebherr CNES 666 freezer - loud fan (?) noise


AbiH, the likelihood of frost inside the fan housing is high. You should manually defrost the unit. Unplug and use a hair dryer to melt as much water as possible. Be aware that hair dryers and water do not mix well! If it happens again, you may have low gas and require a service person.
