Signs That You May Need To Give Us A Call
0 degrees Fahrenheit is the optimal temperature for your freezer, if it is not holding that temperature, it is not going to store your food at the proper temperature. If the food gets too warm, it is going to start to grow bacteria and spoil and that can cost you a lot of money.
You will need to make sure that the freezer is properly set. If it seems to be set properly, give us a call so we can get it figured out for you.
When your freezer is too cold, there is going to be a problem of too much frost and ice building up. There could be a problem with the defrost heater. If your freezer is too cold and the refrigerator is too warm, this is a good sign of this problem.
It's also possible that there is a problem with your evaporator fan motor or the damper control assembly.
Too Much Frost Build-Up
Some frost is to be expected, but too much is indicative of a problem. There are a few things that can cause this to happen including a bad or clogged freezer drain tube, a broken door gasket, or that the freezer door was left open for too long. If too much warm air gets into the freezer, frost will build up.
Won't Turn On At All
Before jumping to conclusions, make sure that the freezer is plugged in and that the breaker that the outlet is on hasn't been tripped. You may need an electrician to deal with a broken outlet or a problem with the breaker.
If all of this seems to look good, there may be a problem with the defrost timer, cold control thermostat, the compressor, or the electronic control board.
