Question about GE 16.7 cu. ft. / 473 liter Upright Freezer FUF17DMRWH

1 Answer

GE 16.7 Upright Freezer

We have a freezer purchased11/07. I t has never frozen the foods.The first GE rep did nothing but move it s littl farther from the back wall and checked the molding around the door. Today a new rep replaced a faulty defrost unit. It has been running about 1 1/2 hours/ Getting colder, but the outside walls are getting very very warm. Is this normal for a relatively new freezer starting up to run so warm on the outside walls. It has yet to freeze some ice packs I left in there. We have lost food before and now wondering if this will work. Help as we have not been happy with the product.

Upright frigidaire freezer light flashing 6 degrees pressed super freeze will it reset??? How do I know if super freeze button working??


Check along the back and sides of the freezer for any vent-like openings that are covered or blocked by packages. There may be a sensor that's not getting air flow as it should. Although most upright freezers are now frost free, there still can be ice buildup in critical areas such as the thermal sensor or the fan. Can you tell if the fan is running?

Even if the compressor has failed, your frozen items will keep the temp down for several days. I suggest you move the frozen goods to a neighbor immediately. Meat or fish in particular quickly becomes unsafe to eat without at least refrigeration.

Freezer runs but won't keep most foods frozen even on coldest setting


Check condenser clean and fan working. Check it's not frozen solid because you've been running it full pelt; if it is, fully defrost it then set it at a mid range setting.

The hose that allows water to flow into the ice cube tray is frozen. is this keeping my water from flowing out of the door


You'll need to get a blow dryer and then thaw it out so it can flow again. Move your frozen foods into the fridge while you do this. Let me know what happens. I might have another few ideas. Raz

Food not totally frozen, icecream melted


if it a frost free freezer then chances are it is a defrost hearter, fan motor or defrost timer
if it is not frost free then it will either be the compressor or a gas leak ( which should be under warranty)

Possible you have a sealed system problem, although you state it is working now. Maybe an overflow from drain pan is why there is water again.

Kenmore freezer not cold at all!


We had a Kenmore upright which worked fine but then suddenly was not keeping food frozen. Long story short, do not store anything on top of the freezer unit. It will insulate the coils that run across the top of the unit, and cause your compressor to work harder than it needs to, and eventually overheat and become ineffective. Says nothing about it in the user manual. We learned the hard way by losing food.
