My coldspot freezer seems to run all the time.I do hear a click when I turn the thermostat up and down but the fan never shuts off? Is the fan suppose to run all the time?

The unit is an upright freezer about 30 years old and is frostfree.

When it runs all the time it usually means it is running low on freon.

if compressor is running, then you are correct in saying no point in replacing stat. by sounds of it you have a faulty compressor fault or a syatem fault - impossible to dignose by remotely. this is not a diy job i'm afraid

SOURCE: problem with upright freezer not freezing

It sounds like the unit is low on freon or the compressor is going bad. You have several other components that could be affecting this as well. Make sure the coils are free from dust and clean underneath. This is a bit premature for you to have problems now, especially since it is a Sears product.

SOURCE: FREEZER ALARM WILL NOT SHUT OFF

You can try 2 things. Unplug it for about 2-3 minutes and then replug it. It should reset itself. You can silence the alarm or muffle it. Silencing it should be hard. Disconnect it from its source. You may want to find out why it is alarming constantly. Have you called Sears and asked them?

SOURCE: My Frigidaire upright freezer is only 4 years old & isn't working

freezers have safety devices to protect themselves. The compressor has an internal overload to keep it from overheating. some have external reset buttons and some do not. either way the cause must be corrected. if the freezer was low on refrigerant you would see signs of oil near the coils, tubing, or compressor. If there is no leak, it overheats when there is airflow restrictions(dirty coils) or a fan has stopped working. only a few screws keep you from seeing all there is to see. If it is clean and the fan is running, then the compressor may just be the culprit

My frostfree Kenmore upright freezer has been beeping alarm since the power was off for three hours this morning and showing -3 as temperature. What do I do to reset?


On some models the beeping will not stop until it gets to normal temp. The -3 is more than likely the set temperature of the unit. you can try to change that with the control. The best thing to do is get a thermometer to check what the actual temperature is.

Frigidaire upright frostfree freezer stored several years unplugged, restored power last night alarm keeps ringing and freezer is not getting cold.


Clean the unit entirely, coils, filter, etc. Then retry. You might have a faulty control board since it has not been used in many years. All depends on the location and humidity. That can tear up a thermostat and control board.

Same as post in Dec 09, I have water freezing at the bottom of my frostfree upright freezer (whirlpool).


Could be the drain is blocked, Otherwise the water would drain away and evaporate from the compressor unit.

I have a upright frostfree Woods freezer. It is only around 4-5 years old and this year it is making very loud running noises. It is not keeping things fully frozen.


Is your circulating fan working?
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed
and PLEASE give a Thumbs Up for the effort. The Raz Shack

Frost buildup around the inside top of the door of an upright Frigidaire Commerical Frostfree Freezer Mod# FFU20IC8Cw2


This happens when your thermistor gets frozen along with the coils or there is a clogging of the freezer drain which causes Ice to build up and spread to the system. Another issue is that your thermistor may be faulty, telling the system inaccurate temperature. Incorrect freon pressure can also be a cause. I would advise first to have the ice melted by letting the unit stay unplugged and have it cleaned while at it.
