is it possible the door has not been closed at some point?
If so they can build up with ice in the evaporator which the defrost system cannot handle....Try a manual defrost.
Depending on where the unit is installed high ambient temperature can drop the internal temp enough to set the alarm off though they will still freeze sufficiently

Can you look behind the food and shelves at the back wall near the bottom, if there is a frost build up on the back wall we have an issue with the defrost system, this would cause poor air flow and loss of cooling. I do not have your model number but I am assuming since it is a frost free unit it has an internal fan. If so is the fan running inside, can you feel air out the vent in the top? If not your fan motor may have gone out. The next thing to check is feel the side walls of the freezer, they should be warm. If they are not the compressor may not be running. Let me know the results of these questions and we can go from there.

Upright freezer door was left ajar. The alarm keeps sounding, can you tell me where the reset button is located.


Hello Deena;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

There is no reset for the alarm. The alarm goes off when you are not maintaining temperature.

During the time the door was ajar, warm air got into the freezer either icing up and locking the cooling fan or forming a block of ice on the cooling coils (Restricting cooling air flow.)

The best thing you can do, unless you want a $300.00 plus service call to defrost everything, is to turn power off to the freezer. Open the freezer door. Have plenty of old towels to soak up the water in the bottom of the freezer as it defrost.

You did not provide a model number which is located on the inside wall of the freezer. Every 8-10 hours your freezer will completely shout down for 20-30 minutes where only the light works and the defrost heater turns on. The ice build up is too much for the defrost heater to handle.

In some freezers the defrost mode is in the control board, in others it is a separate component that you can repeat trip using a flat head screw drive.

The alarm keep beeping and when I turn it to off (the reser alarm) the freezer will not keep food frozen. Please Help!


Hello,

Sounds like you have a bad door switch. Depending on the age of the fridge, it might still be under warranty. If it's not, then you might be able to access the door switch yourself and pull it out & replace it.
This is common. Unplug it or turn off the circuit breaker for a full 5 minutes. Things will be good

The alarm keeps going off. Food is frozen fine just alarm


That alarm is there for a reason. Grab your owner's manual and see the different things it can mean. If the gas is getting low, that could be it, and you'll want to solve it as early as you can.

Sometimes a power surge or brown out can make that alarm go off. Try unplugging it for 5 minutes.
