Question about Frigidaire 20.3 Cu. Ft. Frost-Free Upright Freezer - White

2 Answers

Hi. We've got used ("as is") Electrolux Frigidaire

Hi. We've got used ("as is") Electrolux Frigidaire frost free upright commercial frezer about a week ago in a "used appliance store". (The only number i found on service data sheet is 216857700A - not sure it's the right one) It makes some working noise (sounds about right), we put a bottle with water in the door somewhere in the middle. Next day it was frozen. So we put some food on the top shelfs. We opened it in few days and found everything melted. Interesting thing (i tested with cool packs putting one on each shelf) the top and middle ones are melted, the lower 2 are frozen. Questions are: Did we waste our money? What could be wrong? Thermostat? Thank you.

Not sure if u still need help but the first thing I would do is remove the grills on the front and back and vacuum out the fins on the condenser...dust and grime collects here and will cause the unit to overheat and not cool properly....sometimes an air compressor can be used or air in a can for the hard to reach places.
Tr this and see what happens...good luck

Our Frigidaire frost frost free upright freezer from day one has frost build up on the food inside the packages. The frost is not a problem in the freezer itself, but on the food. Freezer burn occur


Hi Dale Dibb, thank you for your inquiry!

I understand that the food inside of your Frigidaire freezer is getting frost on the inside of the packages. I would recommend turning the temperature up inside of your freezer. Additionally moisture inside of the package would cause frost to develop on the inside of the food packages.

Please assure that all possible moisture has been removed out of the food packages prior to placing the items inside of the freezer. If there is anything else that I can help you with, please feel free to reconnect! -Matt

I have had the same problem with my frigidaire/electrolux upright freezer... I am researching to see if there is a pattern. Once or twice a year for the past few years, the freezer defrosted itself. I found the outside of the unit to be VERY hot to the touch around the time that this occurred.
We typically unplug it for a chunk of time when this happens and then replug it. It has always begun working again.
Sadly, we have lost many groceries and have had to clean many bloody meat messes as a result of this. ANYONE buying this freezer should save their receipt... That way, they can return it or have it repaired when it fails. I hate to think of sending all of these failing monstrosities to the landfill... =(

if the unit still works and looks new i would say knock off about 100 dollars of the price you paid for it and this should be good enough for some who wants it or at least sell it for 200 to 300 dollars

How to recharge freezer electrolux FFH17FC7CW0


HI, It is a big job to recharge a unit. If it need recharged, it means there is a leak. Do you have any cooling at all? If this a self defrosting freezer? If it is self defrosting, make sure there isn't any frost building up on the evaporator panel.
