Insulation does not melt - gaskets may be affected by hot temps.

Your condenser coils may be located on sides of fridge. If so the unit will be warm to the touch on the outside.

Why does the rubber sealer on refridgerator door and freezer door get hot


Inside the frame is a warm bit of pipework, or sometimes a mullion heater, that stops the seal freezing to the frame.

Red and Orange light staying on on my whirlpool chest freezer


try a total defrost,to clear any internal ice(every 12 months)then switch on and if you have a rapid freeze button leave on for 24 hours to get back to normal operating temp.if you have hard ice around the door seals then you have an air leak which you must sort out(try using a hot cloth to warm seals back into shape.....seals should fit all round, all the time.

Freezer is cold and refrig is not cooling


Hi,
This is a very common problem. Ususally it is because of a problem with your defrost, either the coil of the timer/advanced defrost board, or fan failure. You can get a more detailed explanation of your problem by reading this tip about your problem.

Those are the defrost heaters and glows red hot when defrost action is active. It should turn off when defrosting is complete or when the temperature is about 46 degrees Fahrenheit. If it does not turn off, the freezer will not function properly or it will be warm than normal. Have the defrost sensor assembly checked by a qualified technician.

Does the light on the outside of freezer stay on . I bought a used freezer. It is a frigidaire commercial upright (frost free) Does the light on outside of freezer stay on all the time? I have no manual....


Normally there is a Green light showing that power is on

A Yellow one for fast freeze and a Red one for under temperature

The outer casing is well insulated from the inside otherwise the freezer motor would run none stop without cooling the contents so the temperature of the outside casing will reflect the room temperature not the intenal

My freezer stopped freezing and is making a loud buzzing noise with the red light on at the bottom. Cant sleep HELP


the loud buzzing is the freezer high temp alarm. dont know why its warm though.
make sure you don't store anything on top of or on the sides of the unit as the condenser of most freezers are buried in the walls of the unit and it will over heat the compressor. if unit is in a hot garage this will compound the problem.
