Hi monilvsjay - Typically when the freezer is beeping it indicates a warning of a possible malfunction or an unsafe temperature inside. The silence the buzzer, press the ALARM OFF button, however if you have already done so try unplugging the unit or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and if it proves to be ineffective contact a professional to move forward accurately. The freezer could possibly be experiencing a communication problem with the temperature control/board or wiring failure.

Hello Oran - Typically error code F7 on Frigidaire freezer indicates that the unit has detected a stuck key or fail safe mode initiated. Check if it has a thermistor failure and may possibly need to replace the main control board. Contact a professional to move forward accurately.

Hi Edward - Modern freezers have increased storage capacity and keep more even temperature that may require the compressors to run longer but use less energy. Was the unit disconnected previously for any reason? If so, freezer requires a minimum of 4 hours to cold down completely. Confirm that the temperature control is not set too cold and that the door is not being open frequently. A dirty, cracked, worn or poorly fitted door gasket can allow warm air to enter the unit causing it to have to run longer to remove the warm air. Leaks in the door seal will cause freezer to run longer in order to maintain desired temperature. Cleaned the gasket, if it is too damage then it will need to be replace. You can check and see if the door seal is bad by, placing a dollar between the gasket and cabinet. Check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing properly. If nothing is stopping the door then replace gasket. Keep in mind that there should also be at least 4-6 in of air space on all sides of the unit. If freezer is built in or has items stored on top that cover the unit, the can cause long run times, high temperature in the freezer and premature failure to the unit. Do not block the toe grille on the lower front of the unit. Sufficient air circulation is essential for the properly operation of your freezer, about 3 inches around the unit.

Hi Ronnie - What is the exact model number to the unit?

Check the rear is clean and clear. The condenser should be warm, not hot. If it cools down towards the end of the rungs and the last bit is cold. suspect short of gas.
Further check any fans etc and remove any excess ice, and make sure the door seals ok.

If the compressor is hot, then the temperature inside the unit may be compromised if there is a sealed system issue or a restriction in the unit. Call a professional to be safe.

It isn't reaching temperature. The red light comes on at -12c Check the condenser is clean, thermostat set ok and compressor humming nicely

To be short, the only thing in the machine that really has the capability of causing that is the compressor. Its got a floating short in and when it makes contact it trips the outlet/breaker. Check for any exposed wires just to be sure but I'm pretty certain that the compressor is the culprit and either it or the machine needs to be replaced

first of all unplug that freezer and wait for 15 mins. move it five feet from the wall. after 15mins, plug it back and kick in compressor at the same time!!!! remember plug and kick at the same time. the ckicking noise come from the starting relais. this says that the compressor has a problem. If it doesn't work ; you will have to call a service person who will replace the compressor for you.
