Question about Freezers
I have a problem with my fridge freezer, The high temperature warning light for the freezer comes on all the time, the freezer freezes things like ice cubes but doesnt freeze other food properly, ice cream is always really really soft for example.
I keep pressing the fast freeze button as a quick fix but really need to get it sorted! It's only just over 2 years old, Ive never moved it so I dont think it could be damaged by being knocked etc. Please Help!! Many thanks :)
Tips for a great answer:
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
The normal setting for a freezer is -2 to +2 degrees F., and the normal setting for the fresh food section is +35 to +40 degrees F.
You only have one source of cooling and that is your freezer. With the settings that you have, you are asking your unit to do what it is not designed to do.
The ice maker is struggling because if it is a cast steel ice cube mold, the heater beneath it is not designed for the current to break the ice cubes free @ -18 degrees F., or if you have a plastic flex ice cube mold it is too ridged to flex enough to break the ice cubes free. Normally your ice maker should dump 8-10 times in a 24 hour period.
A note on food storage. Make sure you do not overload your freezer of fresh food section to the point where food product extends beyond the edge of the shelves.
