Hello friend, thank you for your post!

I see that your door ajar alarm is going off when the door is closed to your Frigidaire freezer. It sounds like a possible issue with the control panel or switch. Let's perform a reset to your appliance to see if that will correct the issue. You can do that by disconnecting power from the appliance for roughly ten minutes. I hope this helps. -Matt

SOURCE: door was not sealed tightly

The door seal has a magnetic property to it. Until the freezer gets to a certain degree the magnetic porperties of the door seal dont react properly. Make sure the door seal is properly adjusted. If the door was left open it could have semi warped the door. This gets corrected when temp drops to correct temp. Reset freezer by unplugging and waiting for a few minutes. If problem persist contact appliance technician.

If you have any more questions you can comment me back.

How can i stop the door ajar alarm when door closed and 0 f


Hey friend, thank you for your post!

In order to stop the door ajar alarm from beeping when the door is closed you would need to reset the alarm. If you have done that and it continues to beep it could be an issue within the switch or panel of your Frigidaire freezer. I would recommend having a professional come out to properly diagnose your appliance. -Matt

Door ajar light lit with door closed


Good Afternoon Don, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Did the unit previously experience a power loss? If the temperature of food rises to an unsafe level, the red light will glow. First, deactivate the alarm to the unit by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker. Wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on the unit. 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 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.

Door ajar alarm keeps signaling with door shut and locked. What would cause this?


The door sensor causes that.
See to it the door really closely tight.
A dirty or defective sensor will fool the micro-controller to send an alarming.
Have it check and clean by a service technician.
Good luck.

Alarm on door keeps peeping red light on and says door ajar


The door switch which senses when the door is ajar needs to be replaced or cleaned. See if you can make the alarm go off by pushing the switch in as far as it will go or take the switch out and by pass it by taping the wires together. There's a sensor switch for each door so try each one separately.

The "door ajar" alarm keeps going off and the door is sealed shut?


Your door switch may be bad. Is the light on when you open the door when you manually push in on the switch does the light go off? On most fzr the door ajar alarm is set off by the door switch showing the door is open.Turn off the power by unplugging the fzr then you can pop the switch out with a flat blade screw driver if it is only a two wire you can use a paper clip to connect the two wires wrap them with elect tape Then plug the freezer back in and see if the problem clears if it does order a door switch. Some units use a vacume sensor but i believe all kenmores use the door switch. good luck

Food is not completely freezing in spots


This is a symptom of air leaking into the freezer. The most common place is around the door. Check the door really good to make sure something is not obstructing it from closing all the way, it may be closing enough to satisfy the ajar alarm but not enough for a bit of moisture to sneak in. Look for tears or breaks in the seal. If you put a bright flashlight inside the freezer and close the door, turn off the lights in the room you may find a leak that way.

Servis fridge freezer


Hi ,
ngafm at your service,
If its cold and frozen it may be that the door switch that activates this light in the case that the door is ajar, is faulty.
Or it may be that the temperature is dropping to slowly for you to see it by eye!
The whole purpose of the, "door ajar" light is to protect you food from spoilage and to warn you before it gets to warm!
Door ajar or not!!!
My advice is to fix the problem now no matter if it is only the switch causing a false alarm.
Or the worst case scenario !

You need hands on service!
Bless You ,
ngafm,
please give me a good rating before you sign off.
Thank you.
