No the fast freeze bypasses the cold control and will cause the compressor to run too long it is there to bring the temp down for freezing only if left on you will also get a lot more freezer burn

What numbers on a dial mean the coldest my freezer keeps icing up what number should I have the dial on


Not sure what you mean with icing up, but in every freezer, vapour will freeze to the side.
If you want to go for sure, just buy a little thermometer for the freezer (must be going at least to - 30 Celsius) and hang it in the freezer. 3 or 4 star freezers should be at -18 Celsius.
Lower does not add anything to the quality of the food, or can extend the time you can preserve it in the freezer, but will cost more energy to keep it that cold. Lower than - 18 will shorten the time you can keep food in the freezer. -18 C is about -0,4 F.
so 0 or above is bad. -0,4 or below is good.

My freezer has a different code number;ZFT710FW.I put quite a lot of food into the freezer yesterday and the alarm now keeps sounding,I have put the temperature up but the red light is still flashing...


Red Alarm Indicator Light
Under normal operating conditions, the internal temperature of the freezer will ensure the long-term conservation of the stored food. When such temperature rises above a certain level (-12 °C), the appliance will trigger an acoustic and light alarm. The light alarm is a blink red light (Red Alarm Indicator Light), while the acoustic alarm is an intermittent sound.
You can stop the acoustic alarm by pressing the Acoustic Signal Stop Switch once.

When switching on the freezer for the first time, the Red Alarm Indicator Light will blink until the internal temperature has reached a level required for the safe conservation of frozen food.

Fast Freeze function
If more than 3-4 kg of food is to be frozen:
1. Press the Fast Freeze Switch for 2-3 seconds to activate the fast-freeze function 6-24 hours before placing the fresh food in the freezer, the Yellow Fast Freeze Indicator Light will illuminate. The compressor will now run continuously, to ensure that the fresh food is frozen as quickly as possible.
2. It is possible to deactivate the function at any time by pressing the Fast Freeze Switch for 2-3 seconds.
3. Place the foods in the freezing compartments (indicated with graphics).
4. Once the food is completely frozen (it may take up to 24 hours) you can manually switch off the fastfreeze function by pressing the Fast Freeze Switch for 2- 3 seconds and the Yellow Fast Freeze Indicator light will also go out.
5. Move frozen food from the freezing compartments into the other compartments (storing compartments) to make room for another freezing.

If the Fast Freeze Switch is accidentally left on, the fast-freeze function will be automatically switched off 48 hours later. The Yellow Fast Freeze Indicator light will also go out.

I believe that you all understand. If you intend to freeze larger amount of food then certainly a few hours before some shopping switch on the fast freeze function.

Check the condenser grille is clear and clean, and all fans are working. Get a cheap thermometer to keep in the freezer and check it from time to time.

Sounds like your refrigerator is getting stuck in the defrost cycle. Not knowing your model #, You can have a Timer or a Defrost control Board defective.

Freezer is cold but not keeping icecream frozen.


If, the fresh food section is 34- 38 degrees, then the freezer should be cold enough to keep ice cream solid. All of the cooling capability comes from the freezer section. I, personally, would not waste time or money on a ten year old box. Ten years ago it cost $1000, so, the outlay is $100 per year. Dump the old refrigerator and get a new one.

I want to just keep cokes,water,beer etc. in my small upright frigidaire freezer. is there a way to just make it cold enough not to freez the drinks.


Go to Home Depot find you a timer they start at $10.00, you know turn lights off/on when your not home. . They have an digital one for about $16.00 Set it up, ck your times, run it then shut it off for a while keep adjusting till you can keep the temp you want.
