Freezers | Answered on Aug 14, 2019

it is actually 'Sb', you are in Jewish Sabbath mode which prevents anything being turned on or off on a Saturday.

The display shows "Sb" or "5b" while in Sabbath mode.
SB Sabbath Mode
The Sabbath Mode is a feature that disables portions of the fridge and its controls in accordance with observance of the Sabbath and religious holidays within the Orthodox Jewish community. Sabbath Mode is turned ON and OFF by pressing and holding "?" on freezer temp and "?" on refrigerator temp for five seconds.
In the Sabbath Mode, the High Temp alarm is active for health reasons. If a high temperature alarm is activated during this time, due to a door left ajar, the alarm will sound for about 10 minutes. The alarm will then silence on its own and a red high temperature icon will display. The high temp icon will continue to display, even if the door is closed, until the Sabbath mode is exited and the icon reset. The refrigerator will function normally once the door is closed, without any violation of the Sabbath/Holidays.

Here is a list of all the error codes.

Frigidaire Refrigerator Error Codes Fault Codes

The heat at the opening of refrigerator is usually a sign the condenser coils are dirty. Check the condenser coils for a restriction underneath the unit. Dirty condenser coils will cause poor air flow over the coils and compressor. Poor air flow will cause a lot of problems, including overheating the compressor, the refrigerant and the copper lines. This will destroy your sealed system. The coils need cleaning at least once a year, more often if you have pets.
I couldn’t determine if your unit has an “energy saver” setting. If so, turn it on. Not all refrigerators have energy saver. This is on units with emilion heaters in the wall around the door gaskets. The heaters are to eliminate condensation around the door. Turning ON energy saver turns OFF those heaters. You should notice a change quickly if it’s the heater causing the heat, that is, if you have that model.
Cleaning the coils will need a day or two to allow things to cool down before you notice a change in the heat around the door.

Check an item known to work in the power socket. Then call a refrigeration engineer.

We are FIXYA dot com, you would have to contact the maker. The date should be on the specs label inside the unit or on the back near the power cable.

no, chest freezers are not frost free. You have to empty and defrost once a year. There is a drain in back.

The reviews are not good.

Frost Freezers | Answered on Jul 20, 2019

Absolutely not!

light bulb sockets are not earthed and the circuit only rated for a 5 amp maximum.

An extension cord will work fine. however, it needs to be a proper three prong plug power bar and not the sort you plug your Christmas lights into. Ideally the type with a breaker in it.
