Question about Whirlpool 19.6 cu. ft. / 555 liter Upright Freezer EV205FXKQ

2 Answers

The temperature alarm goes off randomly. It remained silent for 6-10 hours after I turned it on originally then started to sound. I shut the alarm off for 10-12 hours then turned it on again. Once more it was silent for several hours then suddenly started to sound. None of the food seems to be thawing YET. I've checked packages in the freezer and don't believe they are blocking the cold air flow. This has happened 3 or 4 times since we installed the freezer last week. There's nothing in the manual that helps me figure out what could be causing this.

Repairs should be performed by a qualified technician. this is a manual defrost freezer. ice cream is a great indicator for a freezer problem. dairy ice cream will defrost before anything else. the thermostat might be satisfying itself during run cycle. if the frost pattern is incomplete then there may be a system malfunction. if so call a service technician. check your warranty for coverage information. also make sure your freezer door is sealing.

If you just purchased the freezer 3 weeks ago, I would be calling the store and or the manufacturer, and have them send out a service man to fix it or replace it.

Did the RCD tripping have anything to do with the freezer? You could have a faulty defrost heater, which means the freezer will not defrost at all.

SOURCE: Whirlpool upright freezer AFG823NF-Thermostat not working properly

JennyT just trying to help with this. I assume this is a self defrost model. If so then is there an ice build up on the back wall? If so then the unit isn't defrosting. That is why pushing the Fast Freeze button is no longer working. You can get by however. Remove all the food from the freezer, put a vacumn in the freezer and shut the door. Turn on the vacumn, this will pull the warm air thru the freezer and in 30 minutes to an hour it will be defrosted enough to work until you can get someone to replace the 1 of 3 parts that the defrost system uses. The vacumn is what I use to defrost my nonself defrosting freezer. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

Your compressor has shorted out. The compressor shouldnt be scorching hot just warm. And that humming you are hearing is the compressor trying to start but it is shorted. There is nothing you can do except for replace the compressor.(or the refrigerator)

the temperature control is bad. when you push the fast freeze it bypasses the thermostat for 12-24 hours depending on which model you have. I am not able to find any parts information with the model number provided but you should be able to find a temperature control at any local appliance parts house or online thru any reputable supplier.

Hello Susan, thank you for your post!

Did your freezer previously experience a power loss? If the temperature of food rises to an unsafe level, the buzzer will sound and the red light, if equipped, will also glow. First, deactivate the alarm to your appliance by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker. Wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on your freezer. After deactivating the alarm and your freezer has run approximately four hours, the red light/alarm should go off on its own. If the red light/alarm continues to stay on, your freezer may possibly have a communication problem with the control board, temperature control or a wiring harness. If this is the case, I would recommend connecting with an experienced technician to determine the underlying cause.

Ridare freezer alarm goes off and it wont freeze ice c ream


Hello grega1959 - If the temperature of food rises to an unsafe level, the buzzer will sound and the red light, if equipped, will also glow. First, deactivate the alarm to the unit. This can be done by either by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker. Wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on the freezer. After deactivating the alarm and the unit has run approximately four hours, the red light/alarm should go off on its own. If the red light/alarm continues to stay on, the freezer may possibly have a communication problem with the temperature control, control board, or a wiring harness. If this is the case, I would recommend connecting with a professional appliance tech for a clear-cut diagnosis.

Best thing to do first is get a thermometer to be sure the temperature is correct. Items still freeze at higher temperatures. If you have ice cream and it is soft, then you have a temp problem.

Alarm keeps going off


Alarm will sound if the temperature of the freezer rises to unsafe levels. An indicator light will flash and continue to flash until the temperature reaches a safe level. The buzzer will also sound and will continue for 48 hours unless a safe condition exists.

Can't get alarm to turn off while temperature stabilizes


My wife solved it for me :-) You turn the alarm off with a switch at the bottom. The alarm turns off, but the light stays red for another 4 hours. After that the red light goes off too, and you can turn the switch back on without the alarm going off, if the freezer is back to operating temp.

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.

Freezer will Not Go Below 8 degrees and Alarm keeps sounding


Our manual says it can take our freezer up to 48 hours to get back to the correct temperature. I found that to be the case when we loaded it fully for the first time.
