Question about Frigidaire Freezer FFU1724

Open Question

Is it worth replacing the entire door to model AFFC1526DW2? The entire door is shot and I'm trying to decide if it would just be as economical to replace the entire unit which is about 3 years old.

I have a 2007 model 253.264 upright Kenmore self-defrosting freezer. The control panel on the front door stopped working. No temperature reading and no way to adjust controls. The freezer is still


I have one out in the yard that is doing the very same thing. Works good but the door display is out. I looked underneath and all of the wires seem to be connected. The main control board is on the bottom as well. The battery is also new. You must have a broken wire between that control and the main board below. I imagine it has something to do the the connector that goes through the door.

I have a chest freezer model AFFC1526DW2 it stopped freezing. The power light is still on. What could be the problem


the thermostat may not be turning on the compressor.
Do you hear a buzz and or clicking every few minutes when plugged in? If so the compressor is trying to start indicating a problem with the compressor. you could check the windings for continuity or a short and then try a 3-in-1 start kit.

Door does not seal tight


Clean the seal on the metel and the seal real good with some steel wool or a good stiff scrub brush. If the magnates in the seal are pulled away for te metel to far you can take a blow dryer on high while pulling firmly on the bad spots and letting the dryer reform them. This takes a little time but may fix it until your ready to replace the entire seal outfit. Also for good measure just because>>>>>

Ice maker is overflowing


Older icemakers have a bar that drops from above your ice bin; once the bin is full the bar is raised and trips turning the ice maker off so that it won't dump. If your's is this style, try manually pushing the free end of the bar upward so that it locks in the upward position. Newer ice makers with the ice bin in the door have a small panel that moves to the open position when the door opens and closes when the door closes. Mine also includes an optical sensor that is visible when this panel is in the closed position. Try placing a non-clear tape over the optical sensor (don't know if that will work or not but worth a shot). If effective in stopping the ice flow then call a repairman. If none of this works, turn off the water supply coming out of the wall to your freezer.

Is it worth replacing a door gasket on a 25 year old freezer. It is a Kenmore 6. Upright. It does not seal tight anymore.


Is the door gasket torn?? if not try cleaning the rubber surface that makes contact with the metal portion of the fridge and clean the metal area also, because inside the rubber gasket is a magnet that helps the gasket seal properly.I've seen door gaskets range in price from $50.00-$100.00 so if thats the only problem it sure beats buying a new fridge for a whole lot more money.

Food thawing in freezer


You may have a small leak in the evaporator. You could try to get a replacement freon with stop leak from the automotive store and give it a shot. If it is a R12 unit then it is too old to repair. But it is worth the gamble to shoot it with freeze 12 or an equivilent before you condemn it.

Kelvinator Chest Freezer will not cool after spray painting rust spot.


Dear Landport2
Welcome to the site,

You said, you have a Kelvinator chest freezer, model number CFS101SM1W. This freezer is in excellent condition and was working ok. I notice that there was a rust spot on the bottom area so I decided to spray paint the entire inside with the appropriate appliance spray paint. After spray painting the freezer will not cool.

How old was your freezer?
This must be an ancient freezer!

And Unfortunately I was not able to tell you to leave it alone and not to turn it off!
You did not cause this!
Unfortunately it was so old that it probably was already on it's last legs.

Here is an interesting report I just read!

Repair or replace your appliances?

When to pull the plug on your old freezer

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model ?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your ,freezer
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.


If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that freezer under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.


If your freezer is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.


The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new freezer.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive freezer
six or more years old .

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a freezer you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.


Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help!

Thank You, HUUUM
