Re: UP RIGHT FRIGIDAIRE FREEZER AUTO DEFROST 11CF I THINK
This could be normal for the summer. This is the right temp to keep it at. Some units are meant to run 80 - 90 % of the time. Turn it all the way up and check the temp. Most units when working properly can get below 0. Check the condensor underneath for dirt and to see if the fan is running under there. (smaller units don't have anything underneath) Some have coils in the rear and the smallest units just use the sides of the cabinet to disperse the heat. Check the gasket see if its sealing properly or maybe the door is warped and not closing at the bottom.

these freezer are designed to run about 70 percent of the time the temp displayed can vary by +/- 3 degrees..make sure you have fan operation in the freezer and the air flow is not blocked or restricted. also make sure that the door is sealing properly
ambient temp 10/35 degrees C.not in direct sunlight,
did you use a level to make sure that it is level in all planes,just to make sure all the door seals are tight,
(look along the seals to make sure)the unit should be left on for at least 24 hours in its chosen position with the doors shut,then check temp,it could take another 12 hours to settle down once loaded.Also make sure that its not touching the wall cuts down on vibration.
once checked,if still not right call samsung..they are good.
This freezer has a manual defrost control on it, comes this way. Also has defrost drain hose in the front with a wrap around evaporator and condenser coil. A unit should only defrost for about 45 minutes to remove any build up, 4 days indicates it is stuck in defrost. It doesn't show the cross over temp to F from C on my chart at 0.2 degrees. You should have a defrost control that you are able to put into defrost your self. Look around the back or anywhere there may be a removable panel or it should show you where to put this box into defrost since it is manual and not automatic.Give it a turn in the direction and watch to see what happens. It may go into defrost again and come back out on its own and freeze properly. If it continues to stay in defrost, you will need to replace this timer. Take all of the info and pick one up at a appliance parts house that will stock it. Draw you a diagram so you dont forget how you removed it and that will make it much easier to install. I will also send you a link about this freezer next. It will be coming to you after you get this. Keep me posted. Shastalaker7
If the defrost timer sticks in the defrost mode,yes. Normal defrost time is 30 minutes or less depending upon which timer is installed. If it happens again,locate the defrost timer and turn the dial manually to see if the compressor comes back on. If so,replace the timer. It is probably on the rear near the compressor. Some are under the front behind the dust guard.
It is probably the control board and since it's new it's still under warranty so a certified Frigidaire repair man will fix it without charge. There should be a telephone number with the paperwork you received when you bought it.
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.
in general, a freezer will go into a defrost cycle about every 6 hours and usually from 25 to 40 minutes. After the defrost, the unit should function normal. Pull down to temp and cycle off. If the product shows signs of thawing, then I would be concerned about the box temp. Defrost may be too long or some other issue may be effecting it. Otherwise, if no signs of thawing, I wouldn't be too concerned. It's the product condition that is the concern.
