On the compressor there's a start device but they call it a controller part number 216954200 and it's around 40 to 50 you hear a clicking sound every couple of minutes or did you smell a burning sounds like the compressor isn't running if the freezer is warm,also on the model number there should be a dw and a number at the end,you have to get the model number off of the machine not the book.unplug the machine,remove the back bottom panel and you'll see the compressor,remove the metal clip and slide the controller off of the compressor,when this part fails if you shake it and hear pieces banging around you'll know it's bad or it might smell burnt or you can check it with a meter for continuity.don't remove any wires until you get the new part so you don't get confused when installing the new part.also do you know if the compressor is running?if it is you could have a freon leak in the saeled system,if so change it out.i looked up this machine,do you defrost this yourself?i can't find any defrost parts and how old is this freezer?

Lffu14f5hwc The light on the front shows 8 then changes to 4. The insde light flashes then goes out. the freezer is running and keeping things frozen.

Thank you for your post, Linda!

I see that you are having difficulties with your Frigidaire freezer, LFFU14F5HWC, changing on the display and the inside light is flashing off. This sounds like a possible problem with your panel or socket. I would recommend performing a reset on your freezer and you can do that by unplugging the power cord for at least ten minutes. If this does not help correct your issue I would suggest having a professional technician out to perform proper repairs. This will help you avoid any unnecessary part purchases. I hope this information is helpful to some degree. -Matt

Freezer gets to cold


If your thermostat cannot control your motor automatically for on and off then you should change it as it is the only unit that can cause this problem.

Have a 17 cu ft upright manual defrost freezer. Started to notice that items in door were soft a week ago. Warning light was on, but the rest seemed OK. Today noticed a puddle from thawed meat. Sounds like...

I believe you freezer has sprung a Freon leak. You described it and if it changes levels is a way of measuring what Freon you have remaining. Sometimes they can be repaired it depends on how they were built. Hope you did not loose much food, Sea Breeze

It quit running and everything thawed. It's got electric going to the dial. plugged it in and can't hear anything running.

The power coming into the fridge goes to the thermostat and when it's time for cooling the thermostat tells the compressor and other components to come on so it has to be the thermostat..Does the light insinde the fridge work? If so i would replace the thermostat and it should fix the problem!!!

Upright frigidaire freezer not running properly

Sounds like your defrost timer has packed it in you need to fit another timer to it and everything will be as good as new.
by turning the timer you have forced it to run nothing to worry about. It has just stopped in the defrost position. What you have done is the first diagnostic test a tech would have performed. I hope this has helped you out.
