Question about Electrolux Freezers

2 Answers

I have an Electrolux upright freezer glfh21f8hwb. It runs for about 3 days, then shuts off and displays error code OF and shuts off. If I reset it with the temp control, it starts again and freezes, but shuts off again in a few days. I just replaced the controller and capacitor with OEM Electrolux parts because it wasn't working at all. With those new parts, it started working again, but now I am getting the OF code. Please advise.

Sorry but I know nothing of the new-fangled fridges and freezers with their codes, but what does tend to stop an appliance that otherwise works well is a lack of cooling air around the motor/compressor unit and when the unit works harder during the summer or in the depths of winter when the heating is full on the thermal protection can cut power to the unit.

Cleaning dust and fluff, ensuring all the power connections are clean and tight and not generating heat and ensuring there is adequate air space between the wall and the unit.

First make sure you have a good 9v battery installed. If it is ok then the problem will probably be in the display board or the wiring connectors between the boards. CE is communication error. If your model has the electronic tempature control instead of mechanical thermostat the problem could be in there. My bet is a bad connection at display board.

The thermostat needs to be replaced part # 216230400 it is $59.51 at www.sears.com (parts) or it is $52.45 at www.apdepot.com this will fix ya.... both will ship direct to you. If you have to leave you can unplug unit and jumper out the thermostat 2 wires plug back in. This will make the unit run 24/7 until you get the part but it is better than losing the food

OK, this is a failed controller board, any E4* is Power supply & Controller Board, probably caused by a power spike.You need to get the unit looked at to see if it is able to be repaired, and if parts are available. If you wish to try and repair this yourself, you must get a service manual, to do so, and to be able to order parts.

Getting error code 36 hour duration


I appreciate your inquiry, friend!

Based off what you have described your Frigidaire freezer is displaying an error code of 36 hours. Normally it will display that once power has been restored, it is indicating that the freezer has been without power for 36 hours. Hold the "alarm reset" for 3 seconds and that should help clear out the code. I hope this is helpful. -Matt

Error code 0F


Good Morning Stephanie Garcia, thank you for your post!

From the information you have provided your Frigidaire freezer is displaying an error code of "OF". Typically, an "OF" stands for power off, you should be able to press the up arrow three times in a row within five seconds to turn your freezer back on. If that does not help correct your issue you may want to perform a reset and you can do that by unplugging the power cord for roughly ten minutes. I hope this helps. -Matt

The upright frigdiare freezer displays -10 degrees and runs continusly i couldnt set it to 0


Good Afternoon Friend,

I understand your Frigidaire freezer, model# LFFH21F7HWJ, is displaying -10 degrees and runs continuously. I also see that you were unable to set it to 0 degrees. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Sometimes there can be a miscommunication between the different boards inside your appliance. Restore power and try the temperature to 0 degrees. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Ach, digital controls! It sounds like the logic board/panel is on the fritz. No cure unless you can identify the malfunctioning component and replace it.

From what I read, the "L." that you see on the control panel indicated that the controls have been locked.

repairs should be performed by a qualified service technician. possible open thermistor in the refrigerator/freezer. the freezer/ thermistor connection may be corroded. check if the evaporator fan motor is running. yes the service technician should check the operation of the refrigerator/freezer.

Upright freezer not cooling adequately


Go to there website and see if you can find your model. You can also contact them from there.
http://www.aeg-electrolux.co.uk/node145.asp?CategoryID=2595

Also get yourself a stand alone fridge and freezer thermometer - leave it in for an hour -that will establish what the temperature really is which will help in diagnosing the cause.

Also trying unplugging it for 15 minutes so the display board loses power - then plug it back in - sometimes that will reset it.

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?
