I would try defrosting first. If no difference, or worse then you may have a refrigerant leak. You could always try setting back to the original setting. Hope this helps.

My Woods upright freezer MU07W running great for 9 years. Will it continue to run if I decide to place it outside on the balcony where temperature goes down to 20 below F or to max of 90 F plus?


Not the best idea. We had one in our garage where it got cold but not that awful cold. Not a good idea unless you want to take a chance.If the unit shuts down for a long time because of the cold the system could freeze or seize up.

My freezer keeps already frozen food frozen but wont freeze fresh food


You need to put it at the top of the freezer in an upright freezer which is usually where the circulation fan is. With chest freezers you put them in the bottom. You may be able to make the freezer colder by turning the thermostat dial to a higher number. The higher the number the colder the compartment will be.


Get yourself a cheep fridge and freezer thermometer from Walmart. They have a green section where the red line should be. The freezer should be minus 18'C or 0'F.

Ice cream not freezing hard


Ice cream needs to be at 10 degrees or colder to stay hard. Check your thermostat and move it colder if you need but give it 24 hours to stabilize to the new setting. Another thing you might check are the coils on the outside of your freezer. They will be on the back or underneath your freezer. What you need to look for is to see if there is any lint or dirt that might be built up on the coils. If they are real dirty they need to be cleaned off with a vacuum or an air hose if you have one. The dirt build up keeps the freezer from cooling efficiently and causes it to run warmer than normal. If all of that is clean and boosting the thermostat to a colder setting does not take care of it you might need to call a service tech. Hope this helps.

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

Freezer cools some to a refirdgerator level, however will not freeze


A few suggestions are 1. Turn down the fridge portion a little and colder air should redirect into the freezer part 2. If it is an older unit sometimes defrost it , unplug it and turn it upside down for a day or so (this moves some of the corrosion inside the pipes). Turn it back up and plug it back in .

How does the control panel work? low numbers warm etc?? I inherited my partners mothers fridge freezer, unfortunatly it didn't include the instrution book,I have had it running on number 2 but it seems to...


Typically the larger the number the colder the setting. Is there an arrow on the knob that points to the left or right that says "warmer" or "colder" I also question your comment "freeze too much" because this is a freezer only, it will not keep things "cool" if you turn it up enough. If you mean there is frost on everything that is humidity and not the freezers fault.

Left door open, closed next day, but only blowing cool air now


You will need to turn the unit off and let it completely unthaw. There is frost that builds up in the ducts and behind the panels when the door is left open that will cause the unit to not cool or circulate where needed.
