Sounds like you have either a bad defrost heater or a bad defrost control timer, however I can not provide part numbers, as I can not find any model numbers which begin with FFA91

SOURCE: I have a True Freezer Model T-49. It works fine but every 3 or 4

This sounds like a stuck relay to me. I have seen this problem before. The defrost clock kills power to the compressor relay coil during defrost. If the contacts in the relay are welded together the compressor runs while unit is trying to defrost. On newer units this relay is mounted in base of unit on the side or back of the electrical box near center bottom of unit. The compressor relay is a small rectangular box with 4 wires attached. It can be replaced with a single pole 20 amp contactor with a 120 volt coil/ or 240 volt. Check the units name plate voltage rating and ratings on old relay! ;)

My frigidaire upright freezer has been working fine until about 2 weeks ago. Now pizzas aren't freezing and freezer corn is soft and i put a ham in it and that was a week ago and it is not froze.


There should be a temperature adjustment inside the freezer somewhere. It will look like a slider or a dial, and be labeled something like "Colder" and "Less Cold" on opposite ends of the scale. If this is set to its coldest setting, and the temperature still is not cold enough to solidly freeze food (ideally, a freezer's temperature should reach ZERO degrees Fahrenheit), then the unit needs to be serviced by an appliance repairman.

Coldspot model: 106 725540 freezes sometimes


You can by pass it but I wouldn't. You may need to replace the t'stat on this. This controls pretty much everything. Depending on your model, the defrost cycle can be adjusted to shorter cycles. Bypassing it would eventually lead to ice build up and a real mess to follow .

Red and Orange light staying on on my whirlpool chest freezer


try a total defrost,to clear any internal ice(every 12 months)then switch on and if you have a rapid freeze button leave on for 24 hours to get back to normal operating temp.if you have hard ice around the door seals then you have an air leak which you must sort out(try using a hot cloth to warm seals back into shape.....seals should fit all round, all the time.

Freezer defrost cycle


If the defrost timer sticks in the defrost mode,yes. Normal defrost time is 30 minutes or less depending upon which timer is installed.
If it happens again,locate the defrost timer and turn the dial manually to see if the compressor comes back on. If so,replace the timer.
It is probably on the rear near the compressor. Some are under the front behind the dust guard.

Freezer doesnt freeze and red light at top came on


If freezer is icing up, you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model

I just moved into a home with a kenmore chest freezer. This is a real dumb question, but which symbol means on. Should the circle be showing for "on" or should the line be showing for "on"?


Some freezer models feature a temperature
monitor that provides an audible
alarm. The temperature monitor alarm is
located near the temperature control

The alarm sounds if the temperature in
the freezer rises 10° F (12° C) or more
above normal for selected setting. Alarm
may sound if temperature control dial is
turned to a much colder setting or if a
large amount of unfrozen food is added at
one time. Alarm is controlled by a three
position switch



0 = OFF prevents alarm from sounding
when freezer is warm, such as during
initial start-up or defrosting.
• ✓ = TEST sounds alarm regardless of
temperature. Alarm system should be
tested at least once a month.
1 = ON is proper setting for normal
freezer use. Return switch to 1 after
defrosting.

If this is a self defrosting freeze,then it is normal to periodically see an elevated reading during a defrost cycle. At 20 degrees, it was probably ready to complete its defrost cycle and come back on to return it to your cold setting.

Freezer not defrosting between cycles


Check the defrost timer for operation if your unit has one. Some Delfield models have solid state controls. If your system has a timer for the defrost you can open the timer cover and turn the dial in the direction indicated by the arrow until a time peg comes up to the time of day marker. You will hear a loud click and the compressor will shut off. Defrost should take place. The inner dial of the timer will have some indication as to how long in minutes the defrost should take. If the pointer does not move while in the defrost position the timer motor is bad. Turn the dial again so the copper pointer goes past the time of day marker and the compressor should restart. Replace the timer.

Thermostat differential on a Bev air ef48-1as


Having to manually defrost an automatic defrost system tells me there is a problem with your defrost timer. Most Beverage-air freezers have a Paragon timer. There are two dials on these timers. An inner and outer dial. On the inner dial is an arrow to indicate the direction of rotation as counter clock wise. On the inner dial is a copper pointer indicating duration of the defrost cycle.

Observe the copper pointer, no movement indicates that the timer is bad.
