Door was not sealed tightly for about a day resulting in some frost inside freezer. Door appears to be closed but door ajar light is still lite and alarm is still beeping. What do I need to check?


The door seal has a magnetic property to it. Until the freezer gets to a certain degree the magnetic porperties of the door seal dont react properly. Make sure the door seal is properly adjusted. If the door was left open it could have semi warped the door. This gets corrected when temp drops to correct temp. Reset freezer by unplugging and waiting for a few minutes. If problem persist contact appliance technician.

If you have any more questions you can comment me back.

Freezer not freezing - can hear a clicking noise coming from areond the th.ermostat / motor area


My freezer has a light that says "high temp" but the freezer isn't freezing my products.....what can I do? It also says that the temp has been 23 degrees or higher for more than 1 hour. I really don't think that the problem is being in hot weather

It seems that the temp more often goes up to 20-30's and that food is not as frozen when I check it. When temp goes up I check it for next couple of minutes and usually within 10 min the temp is back down...


This is normal. All commercfial freezers must defrost 3 to 5 times a day, or they will freeze over at the coil and then stop freezing. A timer in your freezer turns off the compressor and turns a heating element on for 10 to 15 minutes. During that time the coil heats and melts frost from the coil. Usually within 30 minutes the temperature will briefly rise to 20 t0 25 degrees F and then quickly drop down to 0 degrees F. The food rarely defrosts in this short period of time..

I have a Frigidaire model GLFU206FWA upright freezer. The temperature control won't go above 10 degree F. This causes freezer burn on some foods after a period of time. Is there a way to regulate the...


Good day,
Manufacturers of freezers do not give the option of running the machine much above that temperature. Normal operating temperature for a freezer is about -2 to about 8 above F.
Otherwise people could accidentally set the temp too warm and cause a loss of food.
Some appliance parts houses carry universal thermostats that could possibly cover the temperature range your looking for, but 30 degrees is far to warm to preserve frozen food safely.

Have a small Kenmore freezer (31" high x 24" deep by 21" wide). It works fine as far as freezing, but it never cycles off. Just keeps on going and going, driving me crazy. I also continually hear a subdued...


the wooshing maybe the oil/freon migrating thru out the internal system...
The cycle depends on 2 things... t'stat operation and timer. The timer usually shuts off freezer every 6 or 8 hrs for 20 to 30 mins. But the t'stat (once it reaches desired temp. should shut off freezer every 15- 20 mins. for an average 10 -15. So 15 mins off min 15 mins on (that is if the doors is not open) you get my point something like that...
but the way you describe to me it sounds like the t'stat. set it at 1 if it dont shut off and you are absoultely sure you got zero degrees (use a temp. reader) then replace the t'stat

hope this was helpful
let me know if this didnt work then plan B

Temp changes in freezer


If the temperature fluctuations occur (at least the ones to 20-30 degrees) at intervals of 6 hours or so then you are catching it in it's defrost mode which occurs on a timer. The timer shuts off everything except lights every 6 hours for an average of 20 minutes. This usually isn't enough to thaw things but I have seen it cause some crystale. Look closely at the back inside wall of the freezer for an accumulation of frost. If you see it there then you may have a defrost problem. Usually this is accompanied by steadily rising temperature in the freezer and fresh food secions both. The temps you listed (0to10) are fine. Good luck, AJ

Freezer tempature


Depends on the product you want to keep in the freezer. Usually you want to try and stay between 0 and +10 degrees for most items. Ice Cream must be -10 degrees minimum. Any warmer and it won't keep. Hope this helps.

Good Luck
