Where is the temperature control knob on Frigidaire upright freezer model #CFFH17F1RW
The temperature control is located inside the freezer on upright models, and onthe left outside wall on chest models. The temperature is factory preset to providesatisfactory food storage temperatures.
However, the temperature control is adjustable to provide a range of temperatures for your personal satisfaction. If acolder temperature is desired, turn the temperature control knob toward COLD-EST and allow several hours for temperatures to stabilize between adjustments

Do upright freezers have a thermal shut off switch if the compressor runs too long or gets to hot?
There is probably a safety device of some description incorporated into the design though it probably isn't to blame for the trouble.
You need to discover whether it is the fan, compressor or both; neither should run constantly. The condenser fan is only needed while the compressor is pushing the refrigerant around the circuit and in many designs, where a belt driven compressor is used it is usual for the fan to be mounted on the extended motor shaft so they can't run independently.
If the compressor runs constantly and the cabinet doesn't suffer from excessive freezing it is almost certain either the compressor is failing or there is a leak and refrigerant is being lost - probably the latter.

29313 Freezer needs a gasket replaced and possibly a thermostat...never shuts off..
Try sealing the door with tape to see if the thermostat will work to turn it off.
My Kenmore upright freezer had a separate cross seal down quite low, on the freezer not the door. I reversed the door seal so the damaged top part was below the cross seal and voila, no more leak.
If it needs a thermostat I suggest getting it sealed first. Mine was only 10 or so years old but Sears Parts said seal no longer available. Good luck

My portable igloo icemaker is not making ice
i had the no ice making issue , it was running water in the tray but not enough to make the ice. I call service for the machine it self and they told me to . 1. turn machine on . 2. press the select button for 10 sec. then 3. press the power button for 10 sec. and then turn off the machine and unplug it for 6 hour but I only did it for 1 hour. when I plugged it back in and started it. It is now making ice.
