It may be a malfunction causing this.
Check for ice buildup on the lower panel inside the freezer.
This will be a sign off a failed defrost component.
Check the fan motor in the freezer,is it running?
If not,that can be a problem.
Feel the compressor,is it running?If not,that can be a problem.

Why is the temperature alarm light on, on my freezer Model# FFU21M8CW?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the temperature alarm light is on for your Frigidaire freezer, model# FFU21M8CW. This feature is designed to provide a warning of a possible malfunction. If the temperature of the food rises to a level unsafe for long-term storage, the buzzer will sound. The red light, if equipped, will also glow. The Temp Alarm feature operates on household electricity. If power fails, the alarm will not function. An ON/OFF switch allows you to deactivate the Temp Alarm when not wanted. Your freezer is shipped with the Temp Alarm in the OFF position. After your freezer has run approximately 4 hours, the red light, if equipped, will go off. Then you may activate the Temp Alarm without the alarm sounding. Press the ON switch to activate the Temp Alarm. To deactivate, press the OFF switch. If the alarm sounds, be sure freezer is properly leveled, and the door closes freely, and seals properly. If you suspect a technical malfunction, call an authorized servicer immediately. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Frigidaire upright freezer


Hello Susan, thank you for your post!

Did your freezer previously experience a power loss? If the temperature of food rises to an unsafe level, the buzzer will sound and the red light, if equipped, will also glow. First, deactivate the alarm to your appliance by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker. Wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on your freezer. After deactivating the alarm and your freezer has run approximately four hours, the red light/alarm should go off on its own. If the red light/alarm continues to stay on, your freezer may possibly have a communication problem with the control board, temperature control or a wiring harness. If this is the case, I would recommend connecting with an experienced technician to determine the underlying cause.

The temp on my freezer is on normal and was working ok then just stopped and the red light is on turned up the temp to make it colder and the fast freeze but not working and everything is defrosting


Hi Denise, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Did the unit previously experience a power loss? If the temperature of food rises to an unsafe level, the buzzer will typically sound and the red light, if equipped, will also glow. First, deactivate the alarm to the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker. Wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on the unit. After deactivating the alarm and the unit has run approximately four hours, the red light/alarm should go off on its own.

Kenmore freezer buzzer


I would need to model number to check if you have a on/off for you over temp alarm. That "Buzzer" is a over temp alarm. If you fridge uses a 9volt battery then you might need to replace the battery. Please post your model number.

It has been 3 days now and every time we have check to see if the contents has started to defrost, there is no signs of defrosting, everything inside of the freezer remains frozen solid.

Alarm buzzer went off and the yellow and redlights are "on."


Hi,

The on/off switch is only for the alarm. Some people do not want the buzzer to sound for them. If your buzzer is going off then the temperature in the freezer is too warm. It usually means the door was not closed all the way or there is a malfunction in the cooling system. Check the door and seal, make sure it is closing all the way around. If it is and the alarm does not stop on it's own then you will need service done on the unit.

Can't get alarm to turn off while temperature stabilizes


My wife solved it for me :-) You turn the alarm off with a switch at the bottom. The alarm turns off, but the light stays red for another 4 hours. After that the red light goes off too, and you can turn the switch back on without the alarm going off, if the freezer is back to operating temp.

The Amber light is the Power 'On' indicator. The Red light is a Temperature Alarm indicator. THe Red light comes on if the freezer compartment rises above 20 degrees F (for example a freezer malfunction or someone left the door open). You also probably have a rocker switch (or two holes that are over a rocker switch) that is in between these two indicators. If you do, that's an audible (loud buzzer) alarm when the red light comes on. The rocker switch is a simple on-off switch to silence the alarm or turn it back on.

The buzzer is loud


Frigidaire # LFFH2067DoW2 # WB52430831 upright freezer (frost free commercial)

Freezer is still freezing. The alarm sounded and I switched the switch off to turn off. The manual says that the temperature isn't at the right temperature and once it reaches the correct freezing temperature the light will come back on or the sound would go off after at least 4 hours. This was since last night about 6:00 and if i switch the switch the alarm is still sounding. The left side of the freezer is a little warmer than usual. Any suggestions
