Question about Frigidaire 14.1 cu. ft. Upright Freezer (FFU14K0DW)

Freezer stopped after power outage

My model LFFU145HW 4 years old stopped freezing after a Power Failure, inside light out, but control panel is lit. Outlet has full power, and no breaker issue. Tried unplugging for 5 minutes, same result. Left it unplugged overnite, now it is running & cooling. Sides have always been hot to touch for years. Now cooling normally for past hour. I want to make sure it will continue until next power outage. What would you check or replace?

If the sides are hot, look at the defrost timer. Sounds like it has stopped running with the defrost elements on. The compressor has a safety switch on it that opens either if the compressor gets too hot or if it pulls too much current when starting. If your power flickered a lot before coming back on, that triggered the safety switch. Now that it's running normally, I wouldn't worry. The defrost timer is your problem now.

Re lights lit on freezer


Red light lit on freezer means that is not reaches operating temperature.

Most often the old freezer has three indicator lights.
- Green light : that it is brought to a power source and turned on - Red light : means that the temperature is above -18 degrees
- orange light : pressing the so-called SUPER-switch which means that the compressor is running continuously. The SUPER-button switch on a few hours before you begin deep-freeze foods. Freezing time depending on foods quantity (kg). With old freezer must be careful to turn off the switch S (orange light) when the red light goes out or when foods are frozen, otherwise after a few days may burn out the compressor. You should be following the instructions from user manual.
In new freezer managed by the electronics, this function has a predetermined maximum duration, in order to protect the compressor, and can have different marketing names like "shopping".....

Have power but not freezing, cannot hear motor, recently had power outage


Hello max ryan,
I understand that you had a power outage and now that power was restored, you have power inside the appliance but the freezer is not freezing and you can't hear the motor running. I would double check the breakers and make sure that they are on. You can also check the Temperature Control and make sure that it is not in the OFF position. If these solutions do not work, I would call the manufacturer for more help.

-Best Regards-

My Kenmore Upright Freezer Model 25326432100 flashed "ER."


My freezer was purchased in February, 2004. It is a self defrosting freezer but ice has started forming along the bottom shelf and back wall. Also, after cleaning the freezer the other day it has stopped clycing. The freezer will stop running only if I turn it down to the #1 setting and then it will not come back on. If I turn it up to a higher setting the compressor will not stop running. It ran for over 24 hours and would not cycle unless I turned it off or set it at the #1 setting. When I unplugged it and pulled it away from the wall, there was a green water spot the size of a dinner plate underneath the freezer. Help!! Very Unhappy this freezer is only 6 years old. S in Phila.

Freezer wont freeze - digital display has no display at all -


Melanie--

Because this occurred as a result of a power outage, you need to check that the outlet is OK. Plug something in the outlet like a lamp and see that it works normally. If that is OK, check the display for a light bulb that is burned out--incandescant bulbs do that occasionally in a power outage. If it is an LCD or LED display, the power supply is bad on the display board. Is the motor humming and making normal noises?--and your freezer is just not cooling? If no motor noise, look for a reliable and trustworthy appliance repair person. If the damage is costly, try to pursue a claim with the power company.

POWER LIGHT FLASHES ON / OFF


You need to install or change the battery for the power out freezer alarm. Mine was just doing the same thing. I looked on the web for the answer and couldn't find it. Opened the door to look for the model number and there was the diagram for the light flashing codes. Mine's battery compartment is in the grill on the bottom (right below the door) on the left side. Takes a 9v battery. I had a power outage recently and it must have killed the battery after beeping for several hours.
