If it's cutting off at too high a temperature it is a good possibility the probe is faulty. However if the compressor is not cutting off at all, suspect short of gas.

It seems that the temp more often goes up to 20-30's and that food is not as frozen when I check it. When temp goes up I check it for next couple of minutes and usually within 10 min the temp is back down...


This is normal. All commercfial freezers must defrost 3 to 5 times a day, or they will freeze over at the coil and then stop freezing. A timer in your freezer turns off the compressor and turns a heating element on for 10 to 15 minutes. During that time the coil heats and melts frost from the coil. Usually within 30 minutes the temperature will briefly rise to 20 t0 25 degrees F and then quickly drop down to 0 degrees F. The food rarely defrosts in this short period of time..

Miele F7131 S The red alarm and the orange -32 degrees orange light on the front of my under counter freezer keep flashing. I have defrosted it. It appears cold but the lights will not stop flashing.


Freezer Temp. shoud be 0 to -5 Deg. if to warm it will set off the alarm. try unpluging or turn off power to freezer for 1 or 2 min. to see if it will reset.

Have a small Kenmore freezer (31" high x 24" deep by 21" wide). It works fine as far as freezing, but it never cycles off. Just keeps on going and going, driving me crazy. I also continually hear a subdued...


the wooshing maybe the oil/freon migrating thru out the internal system...
The cycle depends on 2 things... t'stat operation and timer. The timer usually shuts off freezer every 6 or 8 hrs for 20 to 30 mins. But the t'stat (once it reaches desired temp. should shut off freezer every 15- 20 mins. for an average 10 -15. So 15 mins off min 15 mins on (that is if the doors is not open) you get my point something like that...
but the way you describe to me it sounds like the t'stat. set it at 1 if it dont shut off and you are absoultely sure you got zero degrees (use a temp. reader) then replace the t'stat

hope this was helpful
let me know if this didnt work then plan B

Mr.


When the heater comes on for defrost behind the rear freezer panel , it gets red hot . The defrost thermostat ( bimetal ) , cuts the heater off , when it reaches 140 degrees for new (2000 - 2009 ) and 55 degrees for older refrigs . When this temp is reached at the top of the coils , the lower portion will be hotter due to being closer to the heater . The frozen food in the freezer , is what keeps the temp down in front of the rear freezer panel . No food in freezer , the hotter the freezer section will be .
