Question about Frigidaire 14.1 cu. ft. Upright Freezer (FFU14K0DW)

2 Answers

I have a frigidaire upright freezer.. it keeps things frozen for a while then freezes up and starts runnin warm.. i mean, it's still cold (30-40 degrees). i have noticed frost accumulating on the back wall where the coils are.. is this a defrost problem? it seems to work fine if i turn the temp to 0 and let the ice melt.. then it'll work for like 12 hrs and freeze up again..

    do you have any advice on how to fix it.. or a safe way to bypass the fact that it doesn't defrost on its own?

You can try unclogging the drain line. It should be located somewhere near the bottom and then make sure the entire line is clear.
Hope this helps.

Leave it plugged in. It won't over freeze. If the outside air is cold then it won't need to run as much to bring down the temp-nature is doing that. So when the weather gets warm it will run to keep everything frozen. Hope this helps. Google burdfrenzy

Freezer cold but not freezing. coils are frozen.


If every coil , from the bottom one to the top one, are frozen, either the door is not closing right or the defrost timer is bad , but if half or less part of the coil is frozen , that means the unit is low in refrigerant and the leak has to be repair ( this is a seal system ) and after that recharge the system.

Will it freeze water? The vent coming into the freezer may be blocked. Check that and see. Is the refrigerator keeping those items cool? You may also have a vent blocked by the fan cover (dusty). If all this is right, you may have a freon leak or worse a compressor or evaporator going bad.
