SOURCE: Freezer has warm spots. All around freezer is hot

Thats normal.

The condenser coils are located just inside of your exterior cabinet walls on the sides and top.

So the freezer gets cold inside and heat has to be released from the condenser coils.
If this is something new, you may have a problem with the defrost timer

Why are the sides of my upright freezer hot and the compressor very hot


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand the sides of your Frigidaire freezer are hot and the compressor is very hot. I also see that the drain plug was frozen and the coils had lots of frost, which you defrosted and your freezer began running again. It looks like your freezer quit again and started up, leaving everything hot. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose and determine what exactly is causing your appliance to be hot. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Compressor not working after performing maintenance ( vacuuming out condenser coil )


probably a coincidence that problem started after the maintenance unless you knocked a wire of a terminal
more likely a problem thermostat
could be a start run capacitor but if that was the case I would expect not to start again at all to many variables to chase so get in a technician to check it out

Knocking noise about every hour or so,lasts 5 or 10 sec's. just started after 7 years .


This is the first sign of the compressor going out. You will either need to replace the compressor or purchase a new unit.

Freezer gets warm occasionally. Sometimes the bread is frozen & other times it is soft to the touch. The ice stays frozen. Frost seems to form on some frozen items

Fridge coil is frozen but the fridge is not cold. Freezer coil is not frozen but freezer is cold. Icemaker doesn't produce ice and the water in the ice maker is not cold. What do you think?

Kenmore Coldspot 69182990 - knocking noise


check te rubber mounts at the bottom of the compressor
the rubber rots after some time and the compressor moves on shutting down as the knocking could be that noise

My ice cream won't stay frozen in my freezer.


Hi: Meat and other frozen foods will be rock solid at 32degrees. Ice cream will be soft it needs 0degrees to be hard. It sounds like your freezer is above 0 degrees. You tried the adjustments. Make sure the coils on the bottom are clean. They will warm a ref if they are dirty. A coil brush from the hardware store or a air compressor (plan on dusting the house when done. Just vaccuuming the front isn't enough. That's an older model but one of the controls affects both the freezer and fresh food. When it's running turn one down; if it turns off the compressor it affects both. The other control is just an air balance, to direct how much air gets to each compartment. I hope this helps, Jeff
