Good Afternoon Friend, this is Z. Thank you for your inquiry!

When your refrigerator is beeping or buzzing, it may be a warning sign of a possible malfunction or an unsafe, interior temperature. To silence the alarm, you can depress the ALARM OFF button. However, if you have already done this, try once again unplugging your refrigerator or flipping the household circuit breaker. It is good to wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on your refrigerator. If the alarm continues, it could possibly be experiencing a communication problem with the temperature control/board or wiring failure. I would recommend connecting with a professional appliance tech for a clear-cut diagnosis.

Freezer alarms indicate two things: The door is not closed correctly; The temperature is warmer than -12 degrees.

The alarm can be visual ( red warning light), in either case it can happen if you have just filled your freezer with loads of fresh unfrozen food, however the alarm should self cancel after approx 20 mins as the freezer chills the fresh food and the warm air, down. A persistent alarm should be investigated by a fridge engineer as soon as possible, any food defrosting below -8 degrees is definitely suspect as far as refreezing is concerned. Where a failed thermostat causes the alarm the food will totally defrost, where a gas system is inefficient it's possible to have an intermittent alarm. The freezer should maintain a temperature between 0-5 degrees and if it gets above 15 degrees, the alarm will sound. This could be a thermostat problem, if it's keeping the compressor off too long. If the compressor is not running and it's warm inside the cabinet, turn the thermostat to a colder setting. If the compressor comes on, the thermostat will need to be replaced. If the compressor still won't run, check if it's hot but be careful. If the compressor is hot, the problem can be with the start kit or the compressor has failed. Another possibility is if the compressor is running but there is not a full frost pattern on all the shelves, it indicates problem in the seal system. Whichever cause happens, it will need a thorough checkup and repair by an engineer.

I have the GLFU1467FW0 model Frigidaire freezer, and the temperature alarm won't stop going off. How do I flip it off for good? Pressing the alarm reset button does nothing.

Hello Whywhywhywhyshame, thank you for your post!

Based off the information you have provided the temperature alarm on your Frigidaire freezer will not stop going off. This sounds like a possible problem with your sensor or control panel. I would recommend performing a reset on your freezer and you can do that by flipping the household circuit breaker off for at least ten minutes. If that does not help resolve your issue I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional technician for proper diagnosis and repair. Hopefully this information is helpful. -Matt

Alarm go on with no apparent reason

Thank you for your post, michael!

I see that the alarm inside your Frigidaire freezer continues to beep it sounds like a potential issue within your control panel or thermistor. Your alarm will beep to inform you that the inside of your freezer is reaching high temperatures. Performing a reset on your appliance could help correct the problem, to perform a reset you need to unplug your freezer or flip the household circuit breaker off for ten minutes. I hope this has been helpful. -Matt

The alarm keep going on with no reason on my frigidaire ultrafreeze

Hi michael, thank you for your post!
I understand that you are having a challenge with your Frigidaire freezer's alarm continuously going off. From what you are describing it could be a possible problem with your control panel or sensor. Typically the alarm will go off when the freezer senses a high temperature inside, I would recommend having a professional come out to properly diagnosis your appliance and repair it to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

Why is the temperature alarm light on, on my freezer Model# FFU21M8CW?

Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand that the temperature alarm light is on for your Frigidaire freezer, model# FFU21M8CW. This feature is designed to provide a warning of a possible malfunction. If the temperature of the food rises to a level unsafe for long-term storage, the buzzer will sound. The red light, if equipped, will also glow. The Temp Alarm feature operates on household electricity. If power fails, the alarm will not function. An ON/OFF switch allows you to deactivate the Temp Alarm when not wanted. Your freezer is shipped with the Temp Alarm in the OFF position. After your freezer has run approximately 4 hours, the red light, if equipped, will go off. Then you may activate the Temp Alarm without the alarm sounding. Press the ON switch to activate the Temp Alarm. To deactivate, press the OFF switch. If the alarm sounds, be sure freezer is properly leveled, and the door closes freely, and seals properly. If you suspect a technical malfunction, call an authorized servicer immediately. Hope this is helpful.

Frigidaire upright freezer

Hello Susan, thank you for your post!

Did your freezer previously experience a power loss? If the temperature of food rises to an unsafe level, the buzzer will sound and the red light, if equipped, will also glow. First, deactivate the alarm to your appliance by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker. Wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on your freezer. After deactivating the alarm and your freezer has run approximately four hours, the red light/alarm should go off on its own. If the red light/alarm continues to stay on, your freezer may possibly have a communication problem with the control board, temperature control or a wiring harness. If this is the case, I would recommend connecting with an experienced technician to determine the underlying cause.

The buzzer is loud

Frigidaire # LFFH2067DoW2 # WB52430831 upright freezer (frost free commercial)

Freezer is still freezing. The alarm sounded and I switched the switch off to turn off. The manual says that the temperature isn't at the right temperature and once it reaches the correct freezing temperature the light will come back on or the sound would go off after at least 4 hours. This was since last night about 6:00 and if i switch the switch the alarm is still sounding. The left side of the freezer is a little warmer than usual. Any suggestions
