The name plate on the freezer should give a model and serial number. Without it you are just chasing the wind.

Hotpoint fzfm151p. Bought a year ago. Worked fine up until I moved this month. My dad placed freezer in garage by mistake. Lights flashed (all) ever since it was in there. I've just moved it into the house...


Freezers have an electric motor within to pump the freezer gas around. Its possible the movement has caused a problem. Get ban appliance shop or tech to check it out.

I have this majic chef freezer about 7 cubic ft. 3 years old turned it off to defrost and when turning it back on it won't get cold?? Compresser is hot so I believe it is working and lights on in front...


I'd let it dry out totally then try it again, some of the electronics may have gotten wet when you defrosted it. Give it a week somewhere warm and dry like a garage. If you didn't attack built up ice in the freezer with a knife while defrosting it it should work after it dries out. Most people end up killing freezers by accidently poking holes in the evap coil while trying to remove built up ice.

I am looking for the instruction manual to my lost freezer SWAN SR5030


If you lost the freezer, why do you need the manual?

Swan is a UK company that does not have a website for their freezers. The UK help center phone number for Swan is: SWAN helpline: 0845 610 4118
email: sales@swan-brand.co.uk


Also, isn't a freezer a little large and hard to loose?

Age of appliance


At some point, you just have to decide if you want it or not. I can't tell you anything about it. If your friend bought it used, ask how long she's had it and estimate at least 5-10 years older than that. If it looks good, and it works good, and the price is right...... I have one similar to the one that you are considering out in my garage. Bought it at a yard sale...$40.00. Not too pretty, maybe from too many moves....Works fine, but if it died tomorrow, I have had my money's worth.

Whining sound from motor on Frigidaire upright freezer


Hi: It sounds like you bought a frost free freezer as it has a fan. The fan will come on to circulate the air. It will not necessarly run continuosly. The noise is most likely coming from the fan. I sold Frigidaire freezers for years and they are noisy compared to a refridgerator. If you think it is louder than it was when you bought it, I would replace the circulating fan. Also look at the back wall for frost as it could be a bad defrost heater blocking it with ice. Most likely just the fan though. Since it's in a detached garage,and you won't have to put up with the noise inside your house, it could run a while before failing. The fact it's getting cold is a very good sign.Also as you asked 2'nd, a freezer is ok in an unheated garage. Don't put a refrigerator in there. Unless It is a Whirlpoll Gladiator that is designed for such applications. Use www.searspartsdirect.com to find out where the fan is if you feel it is necessary to replace it. Its not a tough job if you are handy. Their shipping is expensive so you might want to buy it locally.

Freezxer dosn't work


Is the fan inside the freezer working? If the fan isn't working the freezer will never get ice cold.

Freezer problem


Not sure of what cut out refers to. If you mean the power supply is tripped out after twenty secs hen I would say there is a fair chance of the compressor being down to earth (ie broken). If you mean that the compressor tries to run and then stops after twenty secs then there is a fair chance the compressor is stalled (ie broken). There is also a chance that the relay (starting device) may be at fault failing to start the compressor. If it is the relay then the cost may be around £70 if its the compressor then you are lookin at a couple of hundred pounds approx. The buzzing sound does sound like the compressor trying to run but stalled and unfortunately compressors have no real average anymore and are prone to fail whenever they choose to. Sorry to sound negative and hope this helps.
