Why does my upright freezer runs then kicks off, runs then kicks off?


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire freezer runs for a short time and then kicks off. Then it turns on with a click and repeats its cycle. This is how your freezer functions. When it needs to cool, the compressor will kick on and cool until the temperature is reached. Then it will kick off until it needs to cool again. It's possibly due to the hot and humid summer that it is cycling on and of more. I hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

True freezer T-35F shoudl it be running hard all the time?


Check and clean condenser regularly, check thermostat set at 2 or 3 and check fan is working ok. Apart from that, check the evaporator isn't frozen solid with ice.

HAD A TECH. COME OUT AND CHANGE THE FRONT DIGITAL CONTROL PANEL AND THE DOOR SWITCH AND THE FREEZER STILL RUNS APPROX. 20 OF EVERY 24 HOURS EACH DAY


these units are designed to run approx 85 percent of the time,they maintain temp rather than letting it get to a higher temp and then try to cool it down.they use a lot less energy to run the way they do long running times are normal

Average freezers last for several years, usually 10 or more. The compressor should not run all of the time, maybe less than 10 to 20 percent of the time if it is working properly. Not sure what you mean by the bipass, some freezer have a manual defrost, and in this mode it will not cool. Insure the location where you have the freezer allows for ample air circulation, sometimes folks put them in little spaces that prevent air circulation to the condensing/compressor unit and they overheat and do not work well and fail very quickly.

Running continuously


Hello bxrjer,
Welcome,

You said, you have a FFU20FC6AW2 freezer that I have noticed is running continuously. Explains my $400 electric bill.


How old is the freezer?

The thermostat may be faulty.
But check out this list first.

If the black tubes running back and forth that carry the freon is under the freezer and behind the plastic grill down near the floor you may want to remove the grill cover and gently run a refrigerator brush across the coils. Ive seen them never cleaned and full of lint and dust 2 inches thick.
This is not good for the freezer or any refrigerator too!
They need to be clean so air can run across them or they over heat and get hot.
Room or outside weather is hot. It is normal for the freezer to work harder under these
conditions.

Reasons why Freezer may run too much or too long.

1.Freezer had recently been disconnected for a period of time. Freezer requires 4 hours to cool
down completely.
2.Large amounts of warm or hot food have been stored recently. Warm food will cause the
freezer to run more until the desired temperature is reached.
3.Door is kept open too long or too frequently. Warm air enters the freezer every time the door
is opened. Open the door less often.

4.Freezer door may be slightly open. (Freezer is not level. It rocks on the floor when it is moved slightly. This condition can force the cabinet out of square and misaligned the door.Freezer needs to be leveled if this occurs.
Floor is uneven or weak. Freezer rocks on the floor when it is moved slightly. Level the floor by using metal or wood shims under the freezer or brace floor supporting the freezer.

5.Temperature control is set too cold. Turn the control knob to a warmer setting. Allow several
hours for the temperature to stabilize.
6.Freezer gasket is dirty, worn, cracked, or poorly fitted. Clean or change gasket. Leaks in the
door seal will cause freezer to run longer in order to maintain desired temperature.

Freezer runs all the time


I don't have enough information. Use a freezer thermometer and check the temp. If below 0 probably a bad thermostat. Sides getting hot is normal. Thats how it gets rid of the heat from inside. In the summer a freezer can run over 80% of the time. Again this is normal. Another thing to check is the gasket around the door. See if it is worn or torn and is sealing properly. If there are condensor coils under neath clean them check to see if the fan under there is working when compressor is running. (Not all freezers have coils underneath. Some have them in back, Smaller units just use the side of the cabinet.)
