You shouldn't have any problems that result from the low temp you specified, but the appliance will have to work harder when the temps are above room temperature. Working harder, will mean more energy consumption and a shorter life. How much higher, in either case, will depend on how extreme the temperature is.

Can you freeze raw potatoes and how do you do this?


i assume you want to pre-prepare chips for big family gathering? or for any period of time.

you need good freezing unit
potatoes
chips cutter
knife
3ltr (1 gallon) water with bit of salt and bit of vinegar in it
5kg (11lb) potatoes
table spoon

method:
water solution: to 3ltr (1 gallon) of water add and solve about 6 table spoon of salt and about same amount (6 table spoons) of vinegar (this solution will prevent blackening of the potato cuts), i am adding as well about 3 spoon of sugar to the solution, it allow liquid to cling better to the surface of potatoes, water should be cold, even few ice cubes in it will help
1. wash well your potatoes from debris, sand and whatever junk, remove unsightly, damaged or rotting bits from the potatoes
2. if you have chip machine or slicer - use it! chips should be not thicker than 12mm (1/2"), try not make them thinner than 3mm (1/8"), i do not bother with skinning them, but you may if you have masochistic tendencies. you can do that with knife as well, but will take longer. chips can be cut as straws, plates, sticks. waffle or whatever pattern you have in mind
3. chopped chips drop into the water solution and frequently stir as to allow all surfaces to be covered and prevent browning/blackening of the surfaces (this is oxidation of the surface, it is not poisonous but looks ugly)
4. after all potatoes were used, strain them from water, shake excess water and spread single layer on greaseproof (baking) paper or any other non-stick surface
5. your produce now need to be transferred to the deep freezer and frozen, minimum temperature should be -18c (0f), preffered will be -32c (-25f), if you are living in climate where these temperatures are outside, just put them outside...
6. after deep frozen (about 6h to 12h) divide them and pack them in sealed bags, in suitable portions

that way prepared chips can be stored for months, and if at lower temperature, even for years.

to fry:
have suitable fat at temperature of about 185c (365f), or whatever settings on your fryer is, you do not need defrost them, just directly from the fridge to the fryer, from the moment when they float, about 2min or until golden brown

enjoy!

Freezer works but frig not cooling


if you were to reach your hand towards the rear inside the fridge area can you feel cold air blowing into the refrigerator side if not this could either be due to the fan inside the freezer area not working or there is a small door that is controled by a thermostat inside the ceiling of your refrigerator this thermostat when it reaches a tempreture that is to warm it opens a small door in the rear that connects to the freezer allowing cold air to come into the refrigerator side when the refrigerator becomes cold enough the thermostat then shuts the door. You could also have a defrost issue inside the freezer area in which u would need to remove the rear panel in the rear of the freezer in order to assure you did not have this issue. If you remove the rear panel and you see any ice build up on the evaporator coil (note this is also where the fan that blows the cold air into your refrigerator is located)you would have a defrost issue. If you remove that rear panel and find any ice build up message me back and il instruct how to fix but first check to assure you have air blowing into the refrigerator side. If you dont then you have to diagnose which is causing the issue either the fan which you could hear if you listened inside of the freezer area or the door itself is not opening due to a malfunction with the thermostat if you have any further questions message me back and please also remember when our chat has fully conlcuded to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations Thanks

If it's American, the temperature probably reads as fahrenheit. If so, 20 degrees F is 12 degrees F below freezing which converts to only -6.67 degrees Celsius.

Domestic freezers should be set to -17 degrees Celsius (= 0 degrees F), so the beeper is warning you that the freezer compartment is far too warm. If it's working correctly and has the temperature control set correctly, then it should achieve the correct temperature if you leave it for 24 hours and do not open the door nor try to use the ice dispenser. If the freezer is full of unfrozen items and so has to cool those down as well, then it may take even longer to reach the correct operating temperature.

Te operating manual for your appliance will tell you how to set the temperature correctly and whether it's possible to select between fahrenheit and Celsius scales. Most models allow you to set an override on the beep alarm as well. I cannot guide you on this without knowing the exact Samsung model.

Please take a moment to rate my reply.

Siemens fridge freezer kg30u694gb has droped temperature from -23 to -4 is that normal also alarm is on


No. The freezer's ideal temperature is -18 and if this has dropped it can be due to many issues.
It can be the gas pressure, the pumping of the compressor if there is no coling even after switching off for several hours.
If cooling returns after several hours it can be auto defrost timer, thermostat or poor defrost heating

You may have the cold control set lower than necessary. Make sure the condenser panel is not coated with dust/dirt. If the outer walls of the freezer are the heat-release surfaces, make sure that nothing is on top of, or stacked next to, the outer case that could block heat release. Hope this helps!

The evaporator coil behind the cover on the back wall inside the freezer will ice up under normal conditions. Every 8 to 10 hours for around 20 minutes the defrost timer (or in most newer models the electronic adaptive defrost control) will turn the defrost heater on to melt the built up ice. There is a defrost thermostat which prevents the heater from overheating the freezer by breaking the heater circuit when the temp reaches close to 32 degrees F. The entire cooling system shuts off during the defrost cycle and starts back when the timer advances through the cycle.

If this ice is not melted it will continue to build up until the air can’t flow over the coil to circulate the cold air through the freezer and into the fridge. The temperature change in the fridge is usually noticed first followed by the freezer.

If the defrost thermostat is bad it can prevent the heater from coming on OR it won’t turn the heater off when it gets too warm. It is clamped to the evaporator coil at the top to sense the temp. If it appears to be misshapen it is bad.
With an ohm meter it should show continuity when cold and none when warm.
You can also bypass the thermostat to see if the heater comes on then. If it does then you know the thermostat is bad and needs replaced.

The defrost heater is located on the evaporator. It is in a tube which is at the bottom and can also go up the sides of the evaporator. On some types you can see a burnt spot if it’s bad. With an ohm meter it should show continuity from end to end when disconnected from the wiring in the freezer. You can also test the wiring for voltage when it’s in the defrost mode.

If you have a defrost timer you can test it. It can be located under the fridge behind the kick panel on the front. Some are in the fridge with the controls at the top. You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer because that means the timer is not running. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

If you have an adaptive defrost control instead of a timer, replace it if the heater and thermostat test good. It is located in the fridge with the controls in some models and on the back in others.

Hopefully it was not an unheated storage area! Moisture and contamination can get into the controls from condensation due to big changes in air temperatures in areas like unheated storage units or garages. That being said, the most common causes of a failure to heat are in order: - bad door switches or door switch mounts - loose connection at the magnetron - problem with the control unit - bad magnetron or other high voltage part At our site, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosiss and replacement, and disassembly information.

Cold air from outside coming in house through vent


Sounds like your damper (flap) outside is working, and that's probably the first thing to check. Wind may be also pulling the damper open from time to time. Hopefully the pipe fitting is sealed, and the pipe is insulated anywhere it runs through any unheated portion of the house. Some amount of cold air getting in will be unavoidable. The best bet next might be to look over the two pages in the installation instructions that deal with outside venting. If you don't have the installation instructions, you can get a copy here: http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/literature/ Then if you don't notice any obvious problems with the installation, it may be time to contact the installer for their two cents.
