Question about Frigidaire 20 cu. ft. / 566 liter Upright Freezer FFU20FC4A
My temp. alarm light went on two days ago. I took everything out but left unit plugged in. The temp. reached approx. 25 F . After about 24 hours the temp. alarm went out and it is now a steady 0 degrees F . Do I dare put food back in or should I watch it for a while longer ? Should a defrost cycle last for 24 hours? Chuck S.
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.

Frigidaire has also jumped into
the market with an adaptive defrost board. The fresh food section light switch
and light bulb must work. To initiate a defrost cycle, open the door and push
the light switch in and out 5 times within 6 seconds. The compressor and fans
should shut off and the defrost heater should come on. Open the door and push
the light switch in and out 5 times within 6 seconds to remove the refrigerator
from the defrost mode and back into a cooling mode.
This product comes equipped with an
Adaptive Defrost Control (ADC). To activate manual defrost, press and hold the
Freezer temperature UP (WARMER) key while pressing the Fresh Food temperature
DOWN (COLDER) key 5 times within 6 seconds. A "d" in the freezer temperature
window and "F" in the refrigerator temperature window will display when the
heater is activated. To deactivate manual defrost, press and hold Freezer
temperature UP (WARMER) key while pressing the Fresh Food temperature DOWN
(COLDER) key 5 times within 6 seconds. "d" and "F" will be displayed until the
defrost cycle is complete. (approx. 8 minutes)
