Question about Freezers

1 Answer

Freezer/Refrigerator tempurature swinging wildly

4 years old. 10 days ago, freezer stopped freezing. Kept hearing a clicking noise, like a switch, go for 10 seconds or so then stop. Would do this every five minutes, but freezer no longer freezing. Took everything out, called the repairman. By the time he showed up 2 days later, the freezer was again working, he was unwilling to do anything. 4-5 days with freezer OK.

2 days ago, freezer stopped freezing again. Same clicking noise.
Yesterday I noticed the inside refrigerator french doors - a lot of heat coming from both surfaces where the doors meet. Refrigerator getting warmer, got up to 60 degrees. Took all of the food out. This morning, freezer partially freezing, refrigerator at about 45 (warmer than usual).

Repairman coming tomorrow, what can I tell him? Something's obviously not right. I've read a few other posts here, mine is very intermittent.

    THANKS! Fortunately it was still broken when the technician turned up and it WAS the relay. But I was ready for him.

    thanks again

The compressor is overheating and not starting. Could be just the start relay. If this happens again try unplugging it for about an hour then it should work for a while. Heat between doors is normal this is an electric heater designed to keep the doors from sweating. You just noticed it because the refrigerator wasn't cold.

    Sorry I didn't finish. Check and clean the coils underneath. If you have pets this should be cleaned every 4 months or so. See if the fan under there is running when compressor is.

Freezer is around 3 years old. When set at -17 degrees the freezer clicks very noisely, a relay operating I think. When the fast freeze button is pressed this clicking stops but the display reads -27...


In my opinion, since your going for the fast freeze mode, your freezer sets to its lowest operating temperature to fast tract the freezing process.

and about the noisy clicking sound it is probably a thermostat or relays depending on your system which starts and stop the compressor.

i think your freezer is just doing fine.
