Default Upright Frigidaire Freezer

Hello,

I know that this is for refrigerator posts, and if not appropriate, please let me know if there is a better place to put this post.

My frigidaire upright freezer decided that it has had enough. However, it is all too strange. As of friday it was working and this morning we found everything in it was thawed. The light at the door was on as if it was working. Clearly there is power feeding it, but just not freezing.

Is anyone here able to offer me some advice short of purchasing a new one? I am looking for a new one as I need it, but if I can repair this unit I will be glad to do so.

Thanks. Be well

Miriam

Could be a lot of things. Do you hear the compressor running or a hum or any noise?

as of friday ot appeared to be working properly, with sound and all. This morning there was water on the floor and everything defrosted. There was no noise and we unplugged it to clean up and after plugging back in, the high temp and door open lights are blinking and making a faint bipping sound. Is the unit shot?

Also, any recommendations on replacement? I like upright, but I am not sure I like Frigidaire. This unit is maybe 6 years old and is located in my basement in my cold room. The room does not freeze, but stays very cold all year long.

We removed the panel and it was totally frost free, of course. I just went to check if it was still beeping, and it not, but interesting enough it is now working. There are some frost on the back and it feels cold inside. What is this all about?

it does and the coils or whatever it is called are now getting some frost on them. The fan stops as the door opens and the motor is warm if not hot

I don't know enough to help other than to check the door is closing properly, the drain is clear and the auto defrost is often the guy that isn't working properly
