    Default Freezer HI temp alarm

    My Frigidaire refridgerator has alwsys worked properly. I live in South Louisiana and was going to prepare for the coming Hurricane Issac by freezing quart-sized zip locked bags full of water in case the power goes off. So, I filled about 30 of these bags and put them in the freezer. I was awoken tonight to the HI Temp alarm going off. Would the introduction of so much water to freeze cause this problem? I removed the bags (which hadn't yet froze after 3 hours) to see if the freezer will cool off. Any suggestions?

    Yes, it's an upright, about a year and a half old.

    Once I removed the water bags, the temp fairly quickly came back to normal. I decided to put only a couple of the water bags back in before going to bed, and this morning they were frozen. I've decided to continue to add a few bags throughout the day today, so as not to overload the system.

    Another thing that could have caused the overheating is that it appeared that I might have blocked what appeared to be the return vent in the back with the warm water bags. Could this have restricted the air flow through the system? Thanks.
