Hi,
If it is a frost-free model, it may have started it's defrost cycle. Ths is only for about an half an hour or less.

It should be cold within 12 hours when set to the required temperature.

If not, please contact here again before rating - as I can suggest other options. Thanks

Danby upright freezer plugged in a few hours ago, but coils on back are hot


If you are talking about the black condenser coli on the back of the fridge it is hot because the refrigerant is pulling all of the heat out of the fridge and trying to deposit it outside of the box. This is called hot box pull down. When the temperature inside the fridge comes down and you have product in it the coil on the back will become much cooler during operation. So if you are wondering it is nothing to be worried about, perfectly normal.

How do you reset the alarm and stop the red light from flashing? It has been 3 days now and every time we have check to see if the contents has started to defrost, there is no signs of defrosting, everything inside of the freezer remains frozen solid.

I have 16.7 upright Frigidaire Ultrafreeze freezer, Model AFFU1766DW3 & SERIAL #WB51720061, manufactured 04/05 that I purchased new 11/05. Water was on the floor next the the freezer but the light on...


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Hot exerior walls in a brand new Kenmore 28042 upright freezer


There should not be a fire hazard but you should be concerned that the freezer could break down if it is not allowed to vent the heat it produces. The freezer is not intended nor designed to be enclosed The manual must indicate specifications for minimum clearances for rear, top and sides, and may even be indicated on the big yellow sticker on the inside of the door. The clearances must be respected or again, the unit will fail, and the warranty may be voided in such cases.

HI I HAVE AN OLD 13 CU. FT KENMORE UPRIGHT FREEZER. AFTER I DEFROSTED IT YESTERDAY AND AFTER IT HAD BEEN PLUGGED IN FOR ABOUT 6 HRS I NOTICED THAT THE SIDES OF THE FREEZER FELT VERY HOT . IS THIS NORMAL ?...


It had to run longer than normal to cool down the freezer again. The heat from the compressor running is what you feel.

I would not worry about it unless it is still hot after 24 hours. Then there is another problem.

New freezer not freezing


If it is a new freezer and it is plugged in and the control is turned on the power light should also be lit. After six hour of operation it should be cooled down. Call the place you purchased it from and tell them the problem. It is possible that you got a defective unit.
