The freezer should be set at 4 or 5 to start. If that is not cold enough then move the temp knob to 6 or 7 to get it colder. the higher the # the colder it will get. Onse you set the new temp it will take around 4 hrs to get to the new setting.

Good Luck and please rate 4 thumbs up for the free answer.

SOURCE: UP RIGHT FRIGIDAIRE FREEZER AUTO DEFROST 11CF I THINK

This could be normal for the summer. This is the right temp to keep it at. Some units are meant to run 80 - 90 % of the time. Turn it all the way up and check the temp. Most units when working properly can get below 0. Check the condensor underneath for dirt and to see if the fan is running under there. (smaller units don't have anything underneath) Some have coils in the rear and the smallest units just use the sides of the cabinet to disperse the heat. Check the gasket see if its sealing properly or maybe the door is warped and not closing at the bottom.

What does the temp display on the freezer tell me?


unless this is a dedicated freezer only and not a side by side or over/under , there's no way it's going to get down too 0 degrees inside a warm home , nope not gonna happen

also its not good for you to set this there as compressor wont cycle properly there and entire freezer will ice up , then believe it or not it will get warmer not colder wastes a lot of power as well

Why is my freezer on 0?


Good Afternoon Friend, this is Z. That's a great question!

Depending on the model number of your Frigidaire freezer, "0" could indicate two scenarios. First, if it is set to 0 (zero) that could be the temperature it is set at. On some models, "0" means that your freezer is in the off position. You can re-start your freezer by pressing and releasing the "UP" arrow 3 times. If it continues to display "0", press and release the "DOWN" arrow 3 times. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your freezer status has change successfully. Thank you!

The upright frigdiare freezer displays -10 degrees and runs continusly i couldnt set it to 0


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire freezer, model# LFFH21F7HWJ, is displaying -10 degrees and runs continuously. I also see that you were unable to set it to 0 degrees. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Sometimes there can be a miscommunication between the different boards inside your appliance. Restore power and try the temperature to 0 degrees. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

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.

New freezer set on 4. Runs a lot. Could we raise setting safely.


Yes you can raise the setting if you'd like. The rule of thumb is to raise it one number and allow it to adjust for 24 hours to see a change in internal temperatures. Freezers can run more for several reasons. One is the amount of product inside- the more the merrier. More frozen food will hold the temperatures longer. Another common issue is location, my own freezer is located in the garage at my house and runs quite a bit in the summer, as the temperature outside increases the lenght and frequency of the freezer running will increase. Freezers transfer the heat they remove from inside the box to the outside of the box, so the warmer it is outside, the longer they have to run to do the job.
Also be sure to keep a good eye on this, keep a thermometer in it and make sure you are not having to turn it way up to get it to "0 f" at least, as you may have a sealed system problem. Real ice cream (not fat free or sherbert) is a great indicator of temperatures- at 0 degrees f. real ice cream is firm but scoopable, 5 below and it's pretty hard, 5 above and is't starting to get soft on the outside.
Hope this was helpful to you!

It sounds like the thermostat is not sensing when the fridge/freezer reaches it's set temperature.This will result in the compressor running non-stop and this causes ice build-up inside the fridge.See on what number (0-7) the thermostat is set on.If it is set on 7,turn it down to 3 and see if it makes a difference.If there is no difference it means that the thermostat is not sensing & switching the compressor off.You will then have to replace the thermostat.
