Customer Question

Frigidaire freezer model MFU17M3GW1
Freezer has been unplugged for 6 months. Reason being the interior temperatur rose. I assumed the door was not completely closed was reason the rise in temperature.
I restarted it and everything seemed fine. It lowered the temp to about -20 degrees for 2 days with thermostat on #5. Then the temp rose to about +40 degrees. I tried this procedure twice with the same results.
Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

If it gets cold and runs okay for a couple days then warms, the temperature control, number 21 in the diagram at the link below, is faulty.
