Hi, our FZA50 upright freezer is not maintaining a cool enough temperature. Meat etc. is still frozen but ice cream is soft.
What can I check? The thermostat is set to nearly max, there is good ventilation, but I do notice that the fan seems to be running continuosly (it stops when the door is opened and resumes on closing).

It sounds like you might be dealing with a defrost drain issue or a problem with the freezer's door seal. Try defrosting the freezer and clearing any ice buildup, then check the door seal for any gaps or damage. If the problem persists, you may need to consult the user manual or contact a professional appliance repair service for assistance.
I have had the same problem with my frigidaire/electrolux upright freezer... I am researching to see if there is a pattern. Once or twice a year for the past few years, the freezer defrosted itself. I found the outside of the unit to be VERY hot to the touch around the time that this occurred.
We typically unplug it for a chunk of time when this happens and then replug it. It has always begun working again.
Sadly, we have lost many groceries and have had to clean many bloody meat messes as a result of this. ANYONE buying this freezer should save their receipt... That way, they can return it or have it repaired when it fails. I hate to think of sending all of these failing monstrosities to the landfill... =(
Is your circulating fan working?
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed

The red light bis indicating that the temp is too high, if you can ,turn the thermostat to a colder setting, if this makes no difference, then you have a serious problem, you will have to call an engineer.
