Question about Freezers

What does the temp display on the freezer tell me?

I have set the freezer temperature to 0 degrees F using the up/down arrows. When I push the Temp Display button on the freezer front, it shows a temp of 23 degrees F. So is this the internal temp? Will the temp lower to the 0 degrees I set?

Unless this is a dedicated freezer only and not a side by side or over/under , there's no way it's going to get down too 0 degrees inside a warm home , nope not gonna happen

also its not good for you to set this there as compressor wont cycle properly there and entire freezer will ice up , then believe it or not it will get warmer not colder wastes a lot of power as well

I have a hoshizaki freezer model FH1-AAC-HD, it stay on def


this is a large misconception of this unit. After a defrost cycle is completed, the display stays in "DEF" or "REC" until the box temp reaches 14 degrees of the "set" temp. So, if you have it set on zero, the conditioned space has to get to 14 degrees and then the display will switch over and show the temp. One way to verify this, is if the display shows DEF, check to see if the compressor is running, if so, then this scenario applies.

Hello swanee3669 - Have you trying measuring the temperature inside the unit to confirmed that it matches the display? If so, I recommend contacting a professional to accurately diagnose the unit since it sounds like it could possibly have a bad sealed, thermostat or control board.

How lpw of a temp. Can this freezer reach..and and if only 0 degree could the thermostat temp control be changed out so it could reach les than 0 temperatures like negative 20 or so?


There are different models made for holding different products. Yours has a 1/3 hp compressor for above 20 degs. It may have 0 on the thermostat and may well pull down that far, but -20 would be out of it's reach. Where as it's sister model is made to freeze to below zero has a 3/4 hp compressor. Larger compressor for the lower temps.

If there is frost on the back of the freezer then there is a defrost problem. If no Frost then i would advise you to take the back off the freezer and see if there is any frost on the coils. If no then the compressor is insuffecient and or no freon.

This is normal. All commercfial freezers must defrost 3 to 5 times a day, or they will freeze over at the coil and then stop freezing. A timer in your freezer turns off the compressor and turns a heating element on for 10 to 15 minutes. During that time the coil heats and melts frost from the coil. Usually within 30 minutes the temperature will briefly rise to 20 t0 25 degrees F and then quickly drop down to 0 degrees F. The food rarely defrosts in this short period of time..

Temperature swing specification in a chest freezer.


It depends on the control that your freezer utilizes.

If your temp control dial has the numbers 0-9 or 1-9, then you have whats commonly known as a coil temp sensor.


Unlike an air temp contol that measure the air temp inside the freezer and comes on and off with a 3-5° swing, the coil temp sensor runs a little bit different.

With a coil temp control or sensor, the temp control has a capillary tube and bulb that is inserted into the coil either at on of the ends down a guidetube or just into the center of the radiator type fins. This temp control measures the temperature of the coil, and not the temperature of the air inside the freezer. When the unit runs, the coils typically gets 20° colder than the air temp. And when the control satisfies (shuts off), it will not call for cooling again until the sensing bulb has reached the cut-in point which is typically well above design box temp.


So, to quickly answer your question, yes it is possible to have a 25° temp swing and not have anything really wrong with the unit. That is how its been designed to operate and that is how it will operate. Your only option (although not recommended) is to replace the coil temp sensor with and air temp control. That will give you more consistent temps.


Also, when taking temp of a freezer with a coil temp sensor, be sure to temp the product in the freezer and not the air temperature.

If this is a self defrosting freeze,then it is normal to periodically see an elevated reading during a defrost cycle. At 20 degrees, it was probably ready to complete its defrost cycle and come back on to return it to your cold setting.
