Look around the back of the freeze and at the bottom you will see a small black compressor .Put your hand on it and if it is running you will feel it vibrating. If it vibrating but running very hot them it means you have no gas in the system so the freezer won't freeze. If the compressor is cold and not running then it could be eaither the relay on the compressor or the board on the front either way you will need to get an engineer in

My Frigidaire Heavy Duty Upright Freezer is not freezing. The compressor is running. Only the first section of the coil in the top rack is getiing cold. Manufacture date is 2002 and it's been used for about seven years. Does this unit need to be recharged?


Hi, I have had the exact same problem with my Frigidaire Heavy Duty Commercial Freezer (upright). It is about the same vintage and it is a non-frost free freezer so I'm used to seeing frost on all shelves. However now it's only frosting up on the very top and first shelf. It seemed to be working fine until someone left the door open a crack for two days so that it partially thawed, dripped and refroze. I thawed and dried the freezer (like I have to do one to two times a year)then ran it again. Since then it's running as described above. Could it be the refrigerant or could it be something else? thanks,Jeff

Used extension cord on freezer then it stopped getting cold.


Never use a extension cord unless it is of a larger gauge wire size eg: #12. as opposed to standard #16 or #14. the compressor/motor will not get needed power and burns out.

Quick Question I have a Danby Compact Freezer, and my Dad recently moved it into another room and the cord was to short to reach to the outlet and he had to use a Heavy Duty drop cord.. Is that safe?? My freezer is now making a sound and it wasn't before... Well having it on a drop cord cause it to tear up??


Not sure what a drop cord is but a compressor will either run or not as the case may be. Power supply variations can cause failure but not tear it up. If the compressor is running noisey then unfortunately it will continue to do so until it stops. However it could be that it is a vibration of the pipes due to the move causing the additional noise. I would suggest having a look at the back of the cabinet and seeing if you can pinpoint a bit more precisely the source of the noise. Hope this helps.

Water pooling and freezing on bottom of freezer. Cools poorly.


Check door gaskets if sealing properly? Check to verify freezer is level? If all of the above are fine then look at your drain for the condenasation. It's located at the bottom of your back wall underneath the aluminum evaporator that the cold air comes from. (You will need to remove the back panel inside of freezer wall To get to the drain. It's probably plugged and frozen over. Do not use a chisel or knif instead take a cup of hot water and pour it Oder the drain area and let it sit. (Your freezer will not be running for an hour or so so think ahead or work fast). That being said you have to unplug unit first :-) once you remove all ice push a straw or something through drain to verify its draining through. You can also flush more water down it to watch it drain showing you that it's working. Start with this first.

Frigidaire side by side: water fills up in bottom of freezer


You have a blockage in your drain tube, at the bottom of the metal tray there is a hole which is connected to a tube which runs down the back of your refridge to a pan next to the compressor. It is an easy fix have done this 1000's times. Remove back panel in freezer, grab a heat gun or hair dryer and melt the ice it the bottom of tray. Clean the water in the tray with some paper towel next get some hot water in a measuring jug and pour into the pan(hot water will help melt ice in tube) repeat this process a couple of times and then get a curtain wire or something flexible to push down the pipe to clean the blockage...you will know when the blockage is clear because the water in the pan will suddenly drain off....put cover back on...make sure to unplug appliance before servicing...hope this helps :)

Kenmore 5.1 cu.ft. chest freezer with manual defrost (model # 255.19502) is not meeting my expectations. It was replaced by Sears after its previous model, 19502/19702 crashed while still under warranty. This model appears to be even more poorly made than the previous model. After my husband died and I had fewer family events to prepare, I downsized to a small chest freezer. They are hard to find! Consumers must not be using them much? Today I defrosted this model for the first time. The hard part was not finding the plug, but the hole where water drains out the exterior. It was taking forever, and I had a small test tube brush to clean out any debris caught in the hole. It was not clear to me where the drainage hole is supposed to be? Since I never received a manual of instructions, even online, I finally turned the whole unit over so I could inspect underneath. I won't describe my opinion of the way it is put together. I finally turned it right side up and used a few towels to absorb the rest of the water. Trying to drain the water into a shallow pan only produced a few tablespoons and it was not clear to me where it was coming from, but it had to be where the hole for the plug is? However, when I had it upside down, there was silver tape over the bottom where the drainage hole might have been but I did not want to incur damage by removing the tape. Thank you for clarifying for my next defrost.


Mae sure you leave the freezer upright for 24hours before you operate as the oil from the compressor drains out and you will ruin your freezer.

Freezxer dosn't work


Is the fan inside the freezer working? If the fan isn't working the freezer will never get ice cold.

Small Frigidaire chest freezer not freezing any longer


Hi, first check the dial inside the freezer and make sure you have it set for a cold temperature, check the back wall or floor of the freezer section for frost, check the freezer (evaporator) fan to see if it is running, check the condenser coil (under the unit) for blockage from dust, check the condenser fan (under the unit) to see if it is running.If you have frost in the freezer, there is a problem with the defrost system and the freezer will start to warm eventually as well as the fresh food section. If that is the problem, you can check the defrost terminator, defrost heater/s, and the defrost timer or adaptive defrost control if used on the unit, or the main control board if so equipped. These things usually require dismantling the freezer and other areas of the refrigerator to be checked.You could defrost the freezer by disconnecting the power to the refrigerator and letting it sit for at least 24 hours with DOORS WIDE OPEN to allow the frost to melt completely but it will build up again in 1-2 weeks and start the warming up again.If the freezer refrigerator is older, then the problem should be with the compressor with either a slow leak of gas or the gas is totally empty. Please call in a repair service.Take care
