Question about Frigidaire 11.6 cu. ft. / 328 liter Upright Freezer FFU12K1CW

1 Answer

Freezer not Freezing

Problem 1: I have an ongoing problem with the children not shutting the door and everything thawing out and having to be thrown away. Any ideas or solutions for this problem?

Problem 2: Last night, I noticed it was not freezing. It was about the temp of the refrigerator. There was an ice build up all across the bottom. I scraped it all out and noticed there is a black line across the back. I'm not sure if that is an air return vent or something important, but I got as much of the ice out as I could, but didn't want to harm that area. Could that have been the problem? It's freezing this morning, but I don't want to have this occur again.

    So that black strip at the bottom in the back needs to be free of ice for the air return?

Why haier freezer is beeping


Either way if you had the doors opened a lot, it should like you probably have frost build up preventing proper air flow. You'd need to pull everything out of the freezer and remove the lower back panel inside the freezer. If there is frost build up, you'll need to use a hair dryer to thaw all the frost out. The unit will continue to beep until the set temperature (0 and 38) are reached so that could take a while even after thawing out all the frost build up.

If removing panels sounds like more than you can handle, you can always unplug the unit for 24 hours and leave the doors open to allow the unit to defrost on it's own.

Old whirlpool upright freezer. door left slightly ajar.light on inside. Rubber around door warm. won't seal.some things starting to thaw.shut door.should I do anything else


Seal needs to be replaced around door. Make sure magnetic strip is tight against sides of refrigerator, even if you have to cut the outside so it lays flat against the sides.

Try rearranging all items inside fridge and freezer so that air may circulate around all items easily and then check seals on doors and ensure doors are closed completely and not leaking cold air. Also do a complete thaw/ defrost. You can remove the plastic coverings and ensure all ice is defrosted. Using a hair dryer will speed up thawing/defrosting process.

it may take upto24 hours to settle to -18C,remember it has to cool right through the food in the freezer,as well as the walls.also if the food went soft, it is spoilt......cook meat asap then refreeze.

Everything in our freezer is frozen solid except for the ice cream which is soft and mushy, the freezer is only about 3-4 years old and we checked and it is turned up to the coldest setting, any ideas what...


If this is a self defrosting model make sure that you don't have frost build up on the back wall of the freezer causing the air not to circulate like it should. If you do have frost build up other items will eventually start thawing as well. If this is the case you have a defrost problem.

If this is not a self defrosting model then make sure it does not need defrosting.

You normally will notice ice cream being soft before you notice other things thawing.

Also make sure the door is shutting good and you may try putting the ice cream in a different location.

Good day,
Serious problem. Either there is a freon leak or a restriction inside the tubing that carries the refrigerant.
Needs the attention of a pro.

Note. If the unit is under 5 years, leave it alone. It is still under factory warranty. Call for warranty service.

I believe you freezer has sprung a Freon leak. You described it and if it changes levels is a way of measuring what Freon you have remaining. Sometimes they can be repaired it depends on how they were built. Hope you did not loose much food, Sea Breeze

Top of freezer thawing


Ice build-up in the area of the door could be causing the door gaskets to loose their seal. Shut the unit off and use a hair drier to melt the ice away from the door area. Return the control to run position and see if it makes a difference.
