Low on gas has leaked check acces tube or valve or any solder joints for oil traces as this is common also check if someone has pierced inside the chest to defrost freezer as this would probably dammaged the evaporator

Why does it run continually?

How do i get my condenser fan to stop running. it is cooling fine but won't shut off unless i shut it off.


Are you sure its the condenser fan? The fan is attached to the compressor power and wont run unless the compressor is running. On the other hand the fans inside the cooler will run 24/7 and are designed for continuous duty. If someone has worked on the compressor wiring you may have to re establish the wiring following the wiring diagram. I have seen condenser fans wired in hot areas to run continuously to attempt to cool down a hot compressor or compensate for a worn out or damaged condenser that doesn't get rid of the heat from the system. If that is the case a new condensing unit is probably in your future. Hope this helps good luck.

I have a Turbo Air TGF-49F freezer and it is not cooling. The compressor unit seems to work but when I turn the unit on all I hear is the compressor running continuously but nothing gets cold.


Difficult for you to check this I'm afraid, if the fan on the cooling unit is working unless you have an experienced 'ear' you will not hear the compressor running or worse still occasionally clicking.
Possible faults are
1. Compressor not running (the fan will run even if the compressor does not) electrical fault
2. Compressor seized (consult your service guy) also true for the rest of these
3. Compressor not pumping
4. Refrigerant leak

Not much hope for a cheap repair

Freezer has quit freezing only a little over a year old. manufactor date 6/2009 compressor is running will only cool down to 50 degrees thermostat set on coldest.


Is the compressor continually running? If so then there could be a leak in the system or the compressor is damaged. If it's running then stopping, the cold control (thermostat) could be damaged.

The freezer seems to be running a lot. Is this normal for an energy efficient freezer?


Good day,
Yes, the new high efficiency units tend to run a lot compared to older models. That in fact is not a bad thing, since the compressor has to cycle on and off fewer times per day, and starting and stopping are what create wear and tear on refrigeration equipment. Actually you pay less because of the much smaller compressor that uses less power.

However, keep an eye on it. If it gets continually worse going forward, call for service. Hopefully Frigidaire has solved it's problems but was known to develop internal restrictions in the refrigeration system causing that problem to the point it runs continuously and fails to cool properly.
If the machine is under 5 years of age it would be corrected free of charge.

The freezer works fine, but if you unplug it, it won't start back up, you have to let it sit unpluged for about 30 minutes to an hour before it will come back on. Its like it needs to cool off, it does get...


The high side and low side of the refrigerant system , have to equalize , before the compressor can start . If you unplug , then plug back in , the high side has a lot more pressure , therefore the compressor will not start and the overload will cut the compressor off . When overload cools slightly , compressor will try to start again . If pressures not equalized , overload will cut compressor off again . As this happens , the compressor will get hotter and hotter . Eventually , pressure will equalize and compressor will continue to run . Very bad on compressor and components .

Everything is still running but it doesn't get cold


  • Is the thermostat knob turned to the proper setting?

  • Is the compressor motor running? It's a football-sized case with no apparent moving parts on the outside of the freezer at the back near the bottom. Is it humming or making any kind of continuous noise? If it is, but your freezer is still not cooling at all, there may be a serious problem with one or more of these areas:

    • The compressor

    • The condenser

    • The evaporator

    You can't service these yourself. You need to contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

    If the compressor isn't running but you do have power to the freezer, there may be a problem in one or more of these areas:

    • The compressor

    • The overload and relay

    • The defrost timer

    Frigidaire stand up frost proof w/ temp alarm / 98' model. Compressor running, no power problem. Removed interior panel and found that evaporator coils not getting cool. When switch for alarm is pushed on...


    If your compressor is running with no freon, It should be very hot. Check if it is. And if it is and the freon has leaked out. Then you must find the leak in the system before you add more freon. If you dont this will be an ongoing problem. The freon will leak out after any length of time. This is a very hard task to find the leak, and you will be money ahead to buy another if you dont find the leak than to re charge every year or so.

    Running continuously, food defrosting


    Most likely you have lost your refrigerant in a leak, since the compressor is running but not cooling.

    You need to unplug and get serviced or your compressor will overheat and fail which will be much more expensive.

    Kenmore 23.1 cf Chest Freezer not cooling below 14F


    Make sure everything is working, I.E. compressor, fans. Now I need to know if the freezer shuts off at 14 degrees, or does it continue to run without making temp. If it shuts off, then the first place to look is the thermostat. It may be out of calibration. If it continues to run, then the solution may be as simple as cleaning the condenser coil. or the defrost has malfunctioned somehow. Defrost probleams will cause excess ice on the inside coil. You may need to remove the panels to see how much ice is on it. It sounds like the compressor is good, as it is pretty cold. Just not cold enough. A deep freeze should be at least 0.
