Good Afternoon edgar corro, thanks for your post!
Based off the information you have provided your Frigidaire freezer is displaying an error code "E8". An "E8" error code typically stands for a shorted thermistor this could be a possible miscommunication with the wiring harness, control board, or thermistor. Since it could be anyone of these underlying issues I would suggest contacting a professional technician since they have the appropriate tools to pinpoint the parts needed for repair. Best of luck! -Matt
work should be performed by a qualified service technician. verify that there is proper voltage at the wall outlet using a voltage meter. if it is ok check for voltage to the compressor relay. if it is ok unplug the freezer and check for continuity at the start relay and overload. if it is open you have a relay or overload. if it is ok check for the ohms rating at the compressor. common to start/common to run, start to run should be the total of both. also start/run to ground if any of these are open you have a system problem.
the hinges are bad and need to be replace
go to sears.com and click on the parts link
there enter the complete model number or call them if you want 1-800-252-1698
check to see if hinges are still available
If all is ideal maybe -10 an occationally -15 and this is F considerable coolder than -20C. ALSO fyi a chest freezer will stay at or below these temps better than an upright and especially a self defrosting model. Because a chest freezer you dont loose all the cold air when you open the door. TYhey are not made in auto matic defrost as far as I know (never have seen one but then I havent been looking for one either. An up right freezer can be manual defrost or automatic. but the cold air falls ouit every time the door is opened.
Please let em know if this helps you by giving me as high a mark as you can and thank you for using fixya.
do you have voltage at the compressor? if not you have an open circuit or bad t-stat. if voltage is present and compressor is not running you have a bad start device or bad compessor. if voltage present and compressor runs you have a refrigeration issue get a new freezer.
