Re: Freezer doesn't keep ice cream frozen
Not being able to keep ice cream is not good, before doing anything ck a few things. make sur e to pull out unit and vaccuum under and behind unit, if it cant breath it cant freeze. check in back by compressor, is the fan running to cool the fan??? if the compressor is on so should the fan be. next id look behind the freezer wall for excessive build up of frost( it might even be buildin up with ice throughthte back wall, inwhich case you have a defrost issue

This is an easy one!!
Ice cream needs to be around -5 degrees to +5 degrees to stay frozen (or hard) if the freezer is at like 15 degrees the ice cream will be soft but the rest of the things like meat and ice cubes will be rock solid because anything lower than 32 degrees is freezing for those things.So you might wanna check to see if the fan motor is working and also make sure the condensor coil is free of debris.
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
OK send me the model number as found in photo below. You may have a circulation problem that I will be able to look over closer when I have model number. Sea Breeze http://servicepartstec.blogspot.com/
Your sensor is packed in ice and giving false reading (always frozen)
You NEED to defrost. Will take 2hr
Turn off or Pull plug on freezer Take everything out and put in cooler, brown bags, large bin or boxes to stay cold Defrost by setting large pail of boiling water in each side bottom of freezer and closing door(s) for 1/2hr Open freezer, empty pails in sink and use pails to hold large chunks of ice from freezer that will come out easily Toss out ice chunks Check sensor to be sure it is no longer packed in ice Wipe down interior dry close doors plug in wait 1/2hr reload with stuff you want to keep Done!
As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...
Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...
Check to see if the fan motor in the freezer is running. Most likely it is not circulating the cold air Also make sure the defrost drain line is clear and has drained out. A frozen sheet of ice will restrict airflow also
