Question about Frigidaire Freezers

Freezer will Not Go Below 8 degrees and Alarm keeps sounding

This freezer turned 4 years old yesterday. It is in garage, but temperture this a.m. is 75.

Yesterday evening, my husband left the door ajar a bit for about 30 minutes. Good ole freezer alarm went off b/c temp had went over 20 degrees. I shut the door (making sure it sealed properly) and turned off the alarm expecting freezer to go back to zero. This a.m. the temperture is still at 6 degrees F and the freezer alarm still buzzes when the audible alert is turned on.

Our manual says it can take our freezer up to 48 hours to get back to the correct temperature. I found that to be the case when we loaded it fully for the first time.

I have a Frigidaire upright freezer. It lives in our garage. It hasn't been moved in 4 or 5 years. I have never had a problem until yesterday, when the ice cream decided to melt. We took most...


HI Not sure if you have checked . BUT i would check to make sure the cooling fan is clear and not blocked. Dust and dirt and cat hair and dog hair can collect in and around the vents and and keep it from cooling properly. If it is the type of condenser that is on the back of unit then disregard.

True t-49 Freezer not getting below 10 degrees


is his garage as hot as yours?
Be sure the condenser coil is real clean. Best place to start. Freon levels, door seals are another place to look.
Let me know if I can help any further.

Keep a refrigerator/freezer in garage. The


Good day,
Yes. Domestic appliances will not work properly below approx 55 degrees.
The freezer suffers most simply because the machine runs rarely at 55 degrees and degrades as the temp goes lower.
They are designed to balance properly when in an environment where people live. Ideally 70 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
The machine is not broken.
Moving it inside, is the only solution.

Temp Alarm going off, when freezer seems to be cooling fine.


You need to check the temp in the freezer to make sure it's down to around 10 degrees. The alarm will go off much above that.

Top mounted freezer on refrigerator not working


Move the refrigerator to a room that is at least 50 degrees F.

Temps on most refrigerators are regulated by the fresh foods temp. If your garage is let's say 35 degrees, the fresh foods temp will most likely never raise enough to turn the refrigerator on. With the refrigerator never running, the freezer compartment will warm to 35 degrees, resulting in everything melting. Even if garage is a bit warmer, say 45, the refrig will not run long enough for the freezer to maintain a low enough temperture. If the garage temp falls to below freezing, say 20 degrees, the food in the fresh foods compartment will freeze. (outdoor beverage dispensers have internal heaters to prevent product from freezing !) Please don't rate this if not a Fix-Ya for you, as anything else lowers my score.

Freezer Problem


If it started to cool again the compressor was running. Check the condenser and make sure it is clean. Provide as much air movement through the garage as possible . 100 degrees is a high temperature to be operating a refrigerator in.

The orange button is the "turbo boost" - for reduzing the temperature the fast way. Mostly used when first time use or you put in a lot of unfrozen things at once. When reaching optimal temperture it goes off automatically. The red one is the alert button. Not sure about the green one. Under normal conditions none of the lights is on.
