Are you noticing that your Frigidaire Freezer is not as cold as it once was? Or perhaps the control board is giving you an error code, the ice maker is being particularly noisy, or the unit’s fans are constantly running?
Whatever the problem is, you’ve come to the right place.
Below, we’ll help you troubleshoot some of the most common Frigidaire Freezer issues and offer some guidance on how to fix them.
Leaking water is a common freezer complaint.
To see what might be causing this, first access the rear of the refrigerator to check the interior components
Over time, the unit’s defrost drain can sometimes become clogged with ice and other dirt or debris.
To fix this, first make sure your freezer is unplugged from the wall. Next give yourself a clear area to work by removing any food items that are in the drain region.
Locate the drain hole and use a hairdryer or a turkey baster filled with hot water to melt the ice covering it.
Next clean away the debris and use a towel to absorb all the melted water.
The water supply line of your refrigeration unit needs to be cleaned regularly in order to keep the dispenser’s ice tasting fresh and the appliance working well.
Water lines can get clogged up with debris and mineral buildup, and this can eventually lead toa clog or block water lines.
While this is a relatively straightforward repair procedure, if you’re not feeling confident carrying out the repair yourself, then seek out the help of a professional.
At Denver Appliance Repair, we take pride in our work and have the experience needed to diagnose, repair and service all major appliances, including Frigidaire Freezers. Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns you may have.
Occasionally your freezer’s door gasket may become damaged from regular usage. Over time, this may prevent the door from closing properly and will interfere with the temperature of the freezer.
The only thing to do when this occurs is replace the seal or gasket.
You can do this yourself by purchasing a replacement gasket that is the right size for your specific make and model. Alternatively, you can call in a professional to come and replace it for you.
When a freezer door is left open too often and for too long, frost may start to accumulate, which may prevent the freezer from being able to cool down properly. In order to get your freezer working properly, you’ll need to remove the built-up frost.
To do this, you can scrap away as much as possible and then defrost the ice using a hairdryer.
In the future, pay attention to not leaving the freezer door open unnecessarily.
If you’re still having issues with your appliance, it might be time to call an expert to come and troubleshoot the problem for. In turn, they’ll be able to diagnose the source of the problem, and get it fixed for you in no time.
If the temperature reading on your freezer is too low, then there are two common causes.
The first most common culprit is a faulty thermostat.
You can test that your thermostat is giving the correct temperature reading by using a working thermometer and comparing the readings.
If the thermostat is giving you the proper reading, it’s also possible that it’s simply set to an improper temperature. Your freezer should usually be at or below 0°F or -18°C.
A defective defrost thermostat can stop the defrost heater working and can sometimes cause frost to accumulate on the evaporator coil.
Unfortunately, diagnosing and repairing a faulty defrost thermostat, timer, or heater tends to be a bit more complicated.
So if you need a hand with this, don’t hesitate to contact Denver Appliance Repair today!
If the defrost sensor or control board aren’t functioning properly, then you’ll likely need someone experienced to come out and troubleshoot the problem for you.
These components will likely need some repair work or a complete replacement.
If your freezer isn’t turning on, it is most likely due to the compressor start relay.
This part is used to energize and power the compressor. If it’s faulty, then the compressor won’t work either.
Alternatively, you might also be experiencing an issue with your power supply.
If a number of appliances in your kitchen are experiencing difficulty, then you might have a problem with your power supply.
In this case, the first thing to check is your home’s main electrical panel for any tripped breakers. Sometimes, an electrical surge, due to too many appliances being plugged into the same circuit can cause this.
If you find any tripped breakers, try flipping them back on and then checking your appliance.
If you continue to experience tripped breakers, contact a professional appliance repair technician who can come out to investigate, and subsequently repair the problem for you.
All your appliances, along with your freezer, will be back up and running as soon as your power is fixed.
