Question about Frigidaire Freezers

Open Question

Frigidare Standup freezer 20.3 model GLFH21F8HWD Problems. I have it set to -18 and when I open door the lite comes on then turns off and on then the temp goes to -19 and the motor kicks in.

It started with opening the door and the lite would go off and the screen would read -1 and keypad would do nothing. It would kick in on its own and start working again. I unplugged it for a few days but still acting up. Can someone help??

It sounds very much like control board problem. The chances of both sensors at fault seems unlikely. Unusual that it is the exact same temp unless they are your setpoint requirements. I would advice contacting reliable fridge guy to check the cabinet. Hope this is of some if not much help.

SOURCE: FREEZER SOUNDS VERY NOISY

that because the internal fan is hiting the ice or has bad bushings you can hear the noise just with the door close because when you open the door there is a switch the one turns off the internal fan so when you close the door it turn on the fan again if you wants to hear that with the door open just open the door and push the botton swich with your fingers and you'll hear the noise

Sounds like a main board problem cause the temp should not be accurate one minute, then way off the next. I would have someone look at this cause it would be difficult to figure this out without being there to troubleshoot it

Frigidare chest freezer model cf-8h-L compressor is running but not getting cold on the inside


Recycle it. It is on R12 which we haven't used for 20 years. If the compressor has gone, or if you have lost all the gas, it is beyond economic repair.

We have a Kenmore 16, model model 253.8283680, that recently continuously cycles on and off. What could be the problem associated with this?


Hello;



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



The normal cycle is: Your compressor will turn on to raise the freezer temperature 20 degrees F. above the set temperature, and then the compressor will shut off, Until the freezer temperature drops 20 degrees F. below the set temperature and again the compressor will turn on.



One of the main problems with this type of freezer is the door gasket becomes crushed over time or the door is so thin it becomes deformed.



Do not try to replace the door gasket. You have to soak the new gasket in hot water for 1/2 hour and then form it on the door.



If you notice a gap in the corner of the door - pull hard on it to get it flush.



Recondition the door gasket - With a hair dryer and a kitchen spatula, heat the gasket and try to expand the gasket by pulling out with the spatula.



You can purchase a special freezer lubricant. Be sure not to over do it. It can make the door hard to open. P/N 542638

1/2 Oz. $12.00.

Correct suction line pressure


If it is R22 then it will be about 11psig on the suction side. This should give you a -18 degrees across the coil.

Temp control flashing E 9


Look online and see if you can find an installer's manual. Sounds like the control board hasn't been set to your model yet.
