Too many things can go wrong, but try this first, The fan on the top must be turning got the unit to work. Sometimes when a unit sits up for a while the fan bearings freeze up. Try trurning the fan with your hand of a screwdriver if it has a shroud around the fan. It may start moving and ususally when it does it will be arright after that. The inside will be hot because it will go into a defrost cycle 3 or 4 times a day and that puts a lot of heat inside the unit. Also the door frames are heated. Check to see if the compressor is running. If it is the small copper line going over tt the fan will be very hot. If not its not running. Co to start with clean the radiator coils on the outside and make sure the fan by the compressor is running.

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.

Check your fans make sure they are running also make sure your defrost heater is not on at the same time as the compressor. Also make sure all lights are shutting off when you close the doors

I have a Frigidaire upright freezer. Power coming into freezer. Light inside works, and the temp setting on the door works. Not getting any power through the system to the compressor.


Contact a professional. The power supply source needs to be testing to the compressor and see if the power is fine, or if the compressor is faulty and not drawing needed power.

This is a second hand freezer purchase. When starting it for the first time, it cooled rather quickly inside but the sides and top became very hot to touch and we unplugged it. Is this a dangerous problem?...


Usually the frame getting hot is a sign that either the condenser grill is dirty or blocked or not getting enough air flow around it; or the condenser fan is not working or maybe even the compressor being low on freon.

I would suggest you start with a thorough cleaning, then check the fan and make sure it is working.

Since you said it cooled down quickly, I wouldn't think it was the compressor freon level. More likely dirty condenser grill or where you put it. I have might on 4" x 4" to get it off the ground for better air flow and ease of cleaning. It must work because I have had it since 1983 and never had to do more than clean the grill on it.

The fan on my true t 23f does not run. i check it is not getting power is there a fuzz or capacitor for this thanks


Are you talking about the fan inside the freezer? If yes, check the following items. The door has a switch that turns the lights off when the door closes, it also turns the fan off when you open the door. If it isn't working right the fan won't come on. There is also a round temperature senser on the coil inside the freezer called a "clickson" that keeps the fan from coming on until the coils are below 20 degrees, it may be bad. If you are low on freon, your coils may not be getting cold enough to trip the clickson. Feel of the small copper line going from the compressor to the coils on the outside of the freezer. It should be almost hot enough to burn your skin if you have enough freon. One other thing to check is the defrost timer. It is a box about 4 inches wide and 8 inches tall with a door on the front of it. Check the connections inside to be sure you are getting power through to the fan. Let me know how it turns out.

Check the fan down by the compressor to see if it's working . If not , it needs to be replaced .Also check the coils to make sure they are clean of dust , lint , etc... Is the fan inside the freezer working ? The hot sides are good . This means the compressor is working ( the " freon " attracts the heat inside the freezer , pulling it out , to make the freezer cold . The air flow over the sides , help dissapate the heat ) . Without the model number , I cant look up to see how the freezer is made .

Upright freezer hot to the touch on the sides.


inspect the unit for a fan near the compressor not to be alarmed some do not have a fan if so insure that it is running while the compressor is running also some defrost problems will cause this the unit runs for a long time heating the compressor and by way passing the heat along
