    Default Freezer warning light/buzzer

    Model Number: FFU20F9FW0
    Brand: Frigidaire

    This freezer seems to keep it's contents frozen, but the warning light/buzzer stays on, the buzzer sound is defeatable, the temp hovers between 0 and 10 degrees, My feeling is that since it is a frost free model, that the defrost timer has quit and it is staying in the defrost cycle, as the sides stay warm all the time, in the last few weeks, I had opened it to put some groceries in it, afterwards, the buzzer /light activated, but the temp stayed close to or at where it should, and the groceries are frozen, but the warning light stays on, it used to stay about 0, now it is usually up around 10, but pork loins, frozen meals, etc look to be fine...My guess is that it is staying in defrost cycle all the time, as it is a frost free model..perhaps the defrost timer ?

    If it was staying in the defrost cycle all the time then it wouldn't be cold at all in the freezer.

    Its likely your alarm sensor has gone bad if everything is staying under 10 degrees.

    Here's the alarm sensor for your model:
