Frigidaire Freezer FFU14FC7CB0 stopped being cold
« on: August 23, 2013, 01:26:22 PM »
Our Frigidaire freezer stopped working.  The warm temp light is on and just stays on.

Is it the relay and if so, where is it located?

Thanks so much for the input.  Compressor is not running but can't check the power at this point. No working meter.
Think it's the relay now??? ???

Without a meter to test,Carefully check to see if the compressor is hot.( if it's hot may need relay or compressor ) If not turn the small round "dial" on the control to the left of the compressor clockwise about 1/4 of an inch. If it starts, bad defrost timer. If still no luck the temperature control may be bad. Hit the knob on the control with a wooden spoon, if it starts bad control.Hope that helps.

Compressor wasn't hot.  Turned 1/4 inch but the compressor didn't turn on.  And where is the knob for the control? :thanks:
Thanks so much for helping me figure this out!
