Hi,

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...

Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Hello,I defrosted my electrolux chest freezer and now problem is power is on but not freezing,alarm light keeps coming and keeps bleeping every 2 minutes and goes off and on


Is the compressor running? if it is running, but there is no cooling, it is time to buy a new freezer.
If the compressor is NOT running, I would suspect the compressor start relay.
How did you defrost it?

The top two shelves are not freezing and the food on those shelves and that area of the door have defrosted. The bottom seems to be freezing. I can hear the fan running and do not feel any drafts from


Obviously that freezer is not achieved the required temperature. There are several reasons for that:
- Defrosting system is not working, which leads to accumulation too much ice on the evaporator that prevents heat transfer and reduces air circulation despite the fan is running.
- The problem with draining condensate after defrosting cycle which also leads to accumulation of ice.
- Leaking gas from the cooling system (reduced cooling capacity)
- Faulty compressor

Electrolux freezer will not turn on automatically when termperature warms in compartment, controls don't appear to turn compressor on, any help would be appreciated?


Sounds like your thermostat is bad. You probably have to replace it and the sending unit also. Big job! Look for a manual at : http://www.servicemanuals.net

My 2yr old electrolux freezer just died. The food were defrosted and I think the compressor stopped working, I shut off and restarted the freezer but nothing happens. The light is on just the motor not...


Thermostat is most common, the next is the starter on the compressor, or the (if it has one) defrost timer has failed, I can guide you to see if the timer has failed, first of all, pull the unit away from the wall and gain access to where the compressor is located, you may have to lay on the floor to get a good view, look for a small box located on the cabinet in the compressor recess, if you see this box, you will notice a small circular dial within this box, get a suitable object and turn this dial clockwise, if this is the problem, your freezer will magically burst into life and you will need to replace this timer or the internal thermo switch, if it does nothing or you cant locate the box, suggest you start with the thermostat and work down, if you have no luck, give me a call on 08 9523 0552.

Kenmore chest freezer does not stay below 30 degrees compressor runs but I don't see a fan to cool the compressor


If your chest freezer is less than 50 years old, it does not have a fan. Cooling coils contact inner walls of freezer compartment, warm coils dissipate heat through outside walls of freezer. If compressor runs, temp is 30+ degrees, gasket is OK, lid not left open, then you have one of two contions: 1. Low capacity compressor 2. Refrigerant leak. Solution to either is to replace freezer. (My opinion: Don't get a Kenmore brand, which generally ties you into poor warranty and slow and poor service.) No matter what brand name is on the freezer, it is most likely manufactured by Electrolux (in St. Cloud, MN) or Haier (from China). Look at the model / serial number plate before purchase to see where it was manufactured. Yes, the USA manufactured ones are better. (and I'm not just saying that because the plant is less than 15 miles from where I am sitting right now)

Hi there. I have Electrolux freezer EUU 6174. The problem is that the compressor is switching on and off for 5 seconds and the temperature is to hight. I can't store any food in the freezer. can u help me?


your problem is likely the starting capacitor .. that is a metalic part (about the size of a fist) that is mounted on the compressor or near it .. it will have wires going to the compressor .. the capacitors are not very expensive and usually easy to change but make sure the unit is unplugged .. you can either write the numbers down off the capacitor or remove it and take it with you to a parts place to get a match ... take a photo or draw a diagram so you know where the wires go .(they usually just plug in) . .. you can order one from electrolux (might be higher price) .. dont allow the unit to continue running with the bad starting cap since the compressor can be damaged eventually ... if you call a repairman .. then make sure you tell him its a bad starting cap so he can bring one wiith him and avoild a second trip .. give him the model number and numbers off the capacitor if you can ... often the capacitor is actually two capacitors in one can ... one is for the compressor and the other is hooked up to the fan ... in that case replacing one would also replace the other ..

Frigidaire/electrolux frostfree stand up freezer occasionally seems to completely stop working. Even semi defrosts and leaves some water on floor. after a while it starts up again.Is there a problem here?...


I've had the same problem with my Frigidaire/electrolux frostfree stand up freezer. It's a major downer to go into your freezer to find all of your frozen foods (much of it expensive meat) - defrosted, some or all of it ..ruined. I sometimes wonder how many times it may have stopped working without us knowing, (since we sometimes go days without needing to open it) and just how creepy some of the meat that I am serving my family might be.
On top of destroyed groceries, the cows and chickens lives lost in vain - (aka wasted meat - I'm sensitive to that as the vegetarian in the family), it gets extremely hot on the outside when this occurs. It gets so hot, that we're actually worrying about a fire. It's almost like it is periodically overheating and going into an auto-shut down mode.
Needless to say, we are not "digging" our Frigidaire/electrolux frostfree stand up freezer.....
We are considering ditching it and buying some other model - refurbished. This just stinks... is disappointing... we paid a ton.. and now it's headed for a landfill.... (really?) JUST LOUSY!
Would LOVE a solution.... would love to know of others with this problem...
