Why will it not come on?


The rust shouldn't make any difference.

When you plug it in, does the interior light turn on? If not, suspect the wall outlet - test it for power by plugging in something else. If the interior light turns on, listen very closely to the freezer. It should hum. If it doesn't, toy with the freezer control inside - it may just be turned off. Turn it to about midpoint and listen very closely to it again. If still no hum, wait a short while, then feel carefully on the outside of the cabinet - it may be running through a defrost cycle. The outside of the cabinet may get warm while that's happening, especially around the door gaskets. Wait a while (half an hour, an hour, for the defrost cycle to finish - the freezer should run then.

If it never hums, then the compressor isn't running, so adding freon won't make any difference. Instead, suspect the defrost timer - that's a little electronic circuit board inside.

If it HUMS but never gets COLD, then you potentially have a freon leakage problem. It's difficult at best, though, to refill a refrigerator or freezer - they don't usually have refill taps.

Oh, yes. If the internal light never comes on but you've proven that the wall outlet has power, it's entirely possible that the plug is bad and needs to be redone.

My Whirlpool Intergrated Freezer AFB 823/3 trip The Earth Leakage CB on the house Fuse board!!


This one requires more information. If the breaker trips randomly, then I say there is grounding problem between the plug and the freezer itself. I know the UK has a very large plug and it requires a serious connection into the wall. I would check and make sure you have a good ground on the box itself. You may have to removed the back and look at the connections If you have a V-OHM meter you can verify the ground through different parts of the freezer. If this never happen before and you just bought this freezer I would replace the breaker with a new one. The breaker maybe damaged and sensitive to heat from the current draw of the freezer. Also make sure it is the correct ampere required to run the freezer.

We bought a new upright freezer today, and had to lay it down in order to get it home. It was lying down for about 20 minutes. How long does it have to be upright before we can plug it in?


About the same amount of time that it was laying down
But the trick is to not shake the compressor and that when you
lay it down the freon lines coming out of the refrigerator should be on top or pointing up
The front should be scotched up 6 inches or so too, to help.
Good Luck

I have a frigidaire fridge freezer. Its about 3 yrs old and has stopped working. I have done all the usual like checked the fuse. Before it stopped working had moved it across the kitchen..has moving it...


Hi!!

Did you plugg unit back to the wall outlet?? Is that outlet working??? Did the plug got damaged when disconnected?? Check unit's power cable for continuity. Check freezer temp. controls.

You can plug and unplug your unit as many times as you want an you should not have any problems.. Check the above mentioned items, I think it is where your problem resides.

Don't forget to rate this post!! Good Luck!!

I just bought a second hand upright 20cubic foot frigidair freezer. Its been on for about 3 hours and it feels really hot to the touch on both sides. Did I just get taken or is this normal? It was running...


Did you lay it down when you moved it?
If so you need to leave it standing up for 12-24 hours before you turn it on.

Or you may have just been ripped of.
