I have a small magic chef freezer that opens from the top. I has about 3 or 4 cu. ft. of freezer space. Lately a buzzer has been going off every 15 or 20 minutes. It buzzes for about 5-10 seconds and then...


With the time as the compressor gets old the buzzing will increased, its not a bid deal, just set the thermostat to 1 during the winter, saves you energy and give the compressor more time to rest.

I have a Frigidaire model GLFU206FWA upright freezer. The temperature control won't go above 10 degree F. This causes freezer burn on some foods after a period of time. Is there a way to regulate the...


Good day,
Manufacturers of freezers do not give the option of running the machine much above that temperature. Normal operating temperature for a freezer is about -2 to about 8 above F.
Otherwise people could accidentally set the temp too warm and cause a loss of food.
Some appliance parts houses carry universal thermostats that could possibly cover the temperature range your looking for, but 30 degrees is far to warm to preserve frozen food safely.

Freezers usually have a super heat of 6-8 degrees and as it approaches the set temperature, it can be as low as 4 degrees. you will have to 'babysit' this and adjust as you go but it has to be done in extremely small amounts. the crankcase pressure regulator basically keeps the compressor from being overloaded from high pressure like from after a defrost or the door being left open.

KFS220RHY Is this freezer good for frozen foods as well as ice cream storage


Good day,
No reason it wouldn't work fine. It should be noted that if your in a grocery store the freezer sections used to store ice cream are separate from those for normal produce.
The reason is the ice cream is normally kept 15 degrees colder.
However, this unit has an adjustable tstat that should get you around the ideal 0 degree range.
As well, it's designed to be rugged not as energy effecient as a standard domestic freezer.

Hotpoint ffa91g fridgefreezer wont go below -5


Good day,
If your talking fahrenheit, that is well within it's limitations.
Why would you want it any colder. -5 is fine. 0 to 4 is considered normal.
R134A runs at -15 degrees. It is considered normal for the box (any box) to run 10 degrees higher than the refrigerant.
When R12 (freon) was used it ran at -21 degrees, and could maintain a box at -10, but those days are long gone.

Normal Operating pressure for true 2 door Freezer R404A Room Under 80 degrees F Box at -10 degrees F


The pressures depend, somewhat, on the expansion device,i.e. a TXV or Cap Tube. Take a pressure reading, then convert it to a temperature. The evap temp should be right at 10 colder than the box temp. Remember, heat flows to cold so the evap has to "Lead the Load" in order to cool. In many cases, the condensing pressure is usually ambient temp, plus 30, then convert to a pressure. These are general accepted practices that have been used for many years.

Hope this helps

Running High @ -10 C and should run at -20 C on coldest setting


1. Make sure the sealing gasket is making good contact all the way around. It's pretty easy to lose 10 degrees. If it is a magnetic seal on the door gasket, it may not be sealing all the way around.

2. If it is staying that cold, everything is working well enough. Maybe you need a little gas in the compressor. Time for the service guy.

By the way, is your unit speced to be that cold full of supplies? Is the door opened frequently? minus 35 is pretty cold.
