Question about Frigidaire 20.6 cu. ft. / 583 liter Upright Freezer FFU2124D
Power failure occured while on vacation, the unit will not power up the compressor. Power is on and switches light up but the temp setting switch does not light up. This is a Frigidare upright unit model FFU2065DW and just went out of warranty last month. Is this a thermostat failure and is there a way to check the themostat? If not were do I go from here.
If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one of these:
The compressor,The Thermostat,The overload, relay, or capacitor,The defrost timer,The condenser fan motor.
Try to troubleshoot each of these componet one after the other using eliminating method.
That may solve your problem.

Tips for a great answer:
Hi Susan Abboud - Modern freezers have increased storage capacity and keep more even temperature that may require the compressors to run longer but use less energy. Was the unit disconnected previously for any reason? If so, freezer requires a minimum of 4 hours to cold down completely. Confirm that the temperature control is not set too cold and that the door is not being open frequently. A dirty, cracked, worn or poorly fitted door gasket can allow warm air to enter the unit causing it to have to run longer to remove the warm air. Leaks in the door seal will cause freezer to run longer in order to maintain desired temperature. Cleaned the gasket, if it is too damage then it will need to be replace. You can check and see if the door seal is bad by, placing a dollar between the gasket and cabinet. Check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing properly. If nothing is stopping the door then replace gasket. Keep in mind that there should also be at least 4-6 in of air space on all sides of the unit. If freezer is built in or has items stored on top that cover the unit, the can cause long run times, high temperature in the freezer and premature failure to the unit. Do not block the toe grille on the lower front of the unit. Sufficient air circulation is essential for the properly operation of your freezer, about 3 inches around the unit.
