We have a Frigidaire freezer that has a working light inside but has stopped freezing. Is there anything we can check to keep from loosing all of the items inside it?


I would check to see if the compressor is running(humming or making a continuous noise). The compressor is in the back of the freezer and approximately the size of a football.

If is not running but you do have power, there may be a problem with one or more of these:
The compressor
The Thermostat
The overload, relay, or capacitor
The defrost timer
The condenser fan motor

You might need to call a repairman.

Why will it not come on?


The rust shouldn't make any difference.

When you plug it in, does the interior light turn on? If not, suspect the wall outlet - test it for power by plugging in something else. If the interior light turns on, listen very closely to the freezer. It should hum. If it doesn't, toy with the freezer control inside - it may just be turned off. Turn it to about midpoint and listen very closely to it again. If still no hum, wait a short while, then feel carefully on the outside of the cabinet - it may be running through a defrost cycle. The outside of the cabinet may get warm while that's happening, especially around the door gaskets. Wait a while (half an hour, an hour, for the defrost cycle to finish - the freezer should run then.

If it never hums, then the compressor isn't running, so adding freon won't make any difference. Instead, suspect the defrost timer - that's a little electronic circuit board inside.

If it HUMS but never gets COLD, then you potentially have a freon leakage problem. It's difficult at best, though, to refill a refrigerator or freezer - they don't usually have refill taps.

Oh, yes. If the internal light never comes on but you've proven that the wall outlet has power, it's entirely possible that the plug is bad and needs to be redone.

Fridge defrosted and the motor seems to have stopped working, electricity working fine to it


Most likely t-stat. If the t-stat is good then move to compressor. If you hear a hum then a click and it shuts off, that is the internal overload telling you the compressor is done and needs to be replaced.

Can you hear the compressor humming? Did any water get into the electrics while defrosting?

The freezer defrosted and now it won't get to the right temp. again. it's not even making the humming noise (although the display is working. and I tried unplugging it already)


The humming noise is a fan the circulates the freezer air. When it defrosts it shuts down the cooling cycle and turns on some heating wires. They quickly melt the accumulated ice. Then it all turns back on. Most problems take place during this time because of the rapid temperature change and the dripping water. I would 1st check out the fan. Not sure where yours is but you should be able to remove a cover and be able to see it and the defrost heater. Be careful not to get shocked, but check to see if fan is moving. Small possibility that a connect got wet and corroded or more likely the fan just didn't come back on. Needs to be replace.

Any possibility you can help troubleshoot a larger upright freezer? Our freezer is 3 years old. It sounds like it is working -- I can feel cold air and hear it humming, but as of yesterday it stopped...


Assuming the thermostat is set to call for cooling (sometimes they get bumped), check the condenser coils, fan, etc for debris build up and clean as needed.

Is the freezer frost free? If so, it's possible the defrost timer is stuck in defrost. There should either be a mechanical timer or it could be electronic these days. Check for bad connections or any obvious signs of damage (burn marks)

Make sure the freezer door closes tightly

Freezer dying


IS THE FREEZER AN AUTO DEFROST FREEZER? IF SO, IS THERE FROST BUILT UP ON THE BACK WALL? IF FROST APPEARS ON THE BACK WALL, THERE IS A DEFROST FAILURE. THERE ARE THREE ITEMS IN THE DEFROST CIRCUIT. THE TIMER, HEATER, AND BI-METAL.
THE TIMER IS USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BACK OF THE FREEZER DOWN NEAR THE COMPRESSOR IN THE CORNER. IT HAS FOUR WIRES ATTACHED TO IT. YOU CAN ADVANCE THE TIMER BY TURNING THE KNOB ON THE FACE OF THE TIMER. WHEN IT CLICKS LOUD AND STOPS THE COMPRESSOR RUNNING, IT IS IN THE DEFROST CYCLE. WAIT 5 MNUTES AND CHECK INSIDE THE FREEZER
TO SEE IF THE HEATER COMES ON. YOU MAY BE ABLE TO HEAR THE FROST MELTING AND DROPPING ON THE HEATER. IT WILL SIZZLE AND POP. ALSO, LOOK FOR A GLOWING DOWN AT THE BOTTOM OF THE BACK PANEL.
IF THE HEATER IS ON, THE TIMER IS BAD. IF NOT, CHECK THE HEATER AND BI-METAL.
IF THE COMPRESSOR IS NOT RUNNING, CHECK THE COLD CONTROL TO SEE IF IT IS GOOD. IF THE COLD CONTROL IS O.K., THE START DEVICE ON THE COMPRESSOR MAY BE BAD. DOES THE COMPRESSOR HUM FOR A MINUTE AND THEN CLICK AND SHUT OFF. IT CAN BE EITHER THE START DEVICE (RELAY) OR THE COMPRESSOR IS BAD.
