This could be a bad controller since you had a power outage, or even a bad motor. Look in your operator's manual and see if there is a reset button somewhere near the motor.

Unless you are well versed in electronics and have the proper equipment, you'll be unable to diagnose the control board anyway.

As a last ditch effort, which sometimes works, unplug it for about 5 minutes and then plug it back in. Make sure your thermostat is turned to the correct setting.

If it is an electronic control freezer then the electronic control sounds as though it has failed if there is no digital read out

I have a Frigidaire upright freezer it runs but only blowing hot air. Is there a reset button


Freezers expel warm air. There should be no 'blowing' inside. If it is expelling warm air, then it is working fine, eventually the expelled air should get cooler and cooler.

The wARNING LIGHT IS CONSTANTLY ON , ON MY SWAN SR4150W CHEST FREEZER...AND IT IS VERY HOT ON THE OUTSIDE, ANY IDEAS


the outside is the condenser exchanging heat to the air and indicates that the system is working
you only have a problem if the inside is not freezing.
constantly running can be that the setting is too low numbers i -20 with 20 the coldest and the colder the setting the more loss through the insulation so the motor keeps running
the door or lid open or too frequently being opened
the inside iced up and needs defrosting
The light could simply be a power on light

I have a Frigidaire upright freezer. Power coming into freezer. Light inside works, and the temp setting on the door works. Not getting any power through the system to the compressor.


Contact a professional. The power supply source needs to be testing to the compressor and see if the power is fine, or if the compressor is faulty and not drawing needed power.

I would replace the defrost termination thermostat. They were a frequent failure item on
Frigidaire units I service, causing this condition. Around 8 to 20 dollars depending on
vendor. Also check the defrost timer as I have found at least one that was stuck due to
mis assembly. (the replacements are from a different vendor). Hope this helps.

On electronically controlled units, a light out issue may alert you to a failure situation,(minor).. Replace the bulb and see if that was the fault

The fan on my true t 23f does not run. i check it is not getting power is there a fuzz or capacitor for this thanks


Are you talking about the fan inside the freezer? If yes, check the following items. The door has a switch that turns the lights off when the door closes, it also turns the fan off when you open the door. If it isn't working right the fan won't come on. There is also a round temperature senser on the coil inside the freezer called a "clickson" that keeps the fan from coming on until the coils are below 20 degrees, it may be bad. If you are low on freon, your coils may not be getting cold enough to trip the clickson. Feel of the small copper line going from the compressor to the coils on the outside of the freezer. It should be almost hot enough to burn your skin if you have enough freon. One other thing to check is the defrost timer. It is a box about 4 inches wide and 8 inches tall with a door on the front of it. Check the connections inside to be sure you are getting power through to the fan. Let me know how it turns out.

The freezer motor is not running. the ice in the freezer is melted


If you are referring to the evaporator fan motor located inside the freezer, if it is not running, then your symptoms would be cold food at the bottom of both sections, assuming its a side by side, and warm food at the top, both sides, also the icemaker wont make ice, and water likely wont come out the door. Depending on your brand, it could be the motor itself has burnt out, or possibly a bimetal thermostat, a cal rod heater, or an electronic control board.

No light on door and motor not running


Have you checked your breaker switches in the circuit box? If tripped, the breaker will rest in a half way position.

Turn it all the way off and then back on.
