Yes, it could be.

Like all light bulbs, it'll burn out eventually.

I have a Skandiluxe CF 136 chest freezer & the orange (fast freeze) light is on all the time.


The compressor won't burn out just because it's running all the time. The plastic fascia pops out easily from behind(take the little panel off on the side) Set the thermostat to the middle of its range and switch the fast freeze off.

The light bulb in my My Frigidaire fkfh21f7hwa upright freezer started blinking and the fan would stop running whenever I open the door. The control panel would also beep and flash between 0 and 1. I


Hello Ricco, thanks for your post!
Based off the information you have provided it sounds like a possible issue with your control panel or power cord within your Frigidaire freezer. I would recommend performing a reset on your freezer and you can do that by disconnecting the power cord for roughly ten minutes. If you continue to experience an issue with the freezer I would recommend consulting with a professional technician for a proper diagnosis to be completed. Best of luck! -Matt

We purchased this same Kenmore chest freezer model 19502/19702 in 2010. In less than 2 years the compressor quit. If you do a search on this model you will see dozens of complaints. Don't waste your time or money on this freezer.

Light doesn't come on on front panel


It sounds as if the bulb has burned out and you need to replace it. It might also be that, if the indicator light is located at the bottom of the cabinet, that it might have become unplugged from the wiring and it simply needs to be reconnected. In any case, be sure to unplug the freezer before you go removing anything, such as the access panel or the bulb mount, etc.

It is a very easy repair in most cases and you will need to determine the brand and model number for your freezer, since you didn't provide it here. Once you have that information, you can go to www.searspartsdirect.com and enter that info into the site and locate the replacement bulb for your freezer.

You'l be able to see a line drawing and a parts listing for all the various pieces for your freezer and can order it online directly from them, too, if you wish. You can also use the part number to get on from a local service provider if you prefer.

Remember, with more information (brand and a complete model #) we could provide you with the precise part numbers and a direct link to the web pages that show your specific freezer.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Freezer wont freeze - digital display has no display at all -


Melanie--

Because this occurred as a result of a power outage, you need to check that the outlet is OK. Plug something in the outlet like a lamp and see that it works normally. If that is OK, check the display for a light bulb that is burned out--incandescant bulbs do that occasionally in a power outage. If it is an LCD or LED display, the power supply is bad on the display board. Is the motor humming and making normal noises?--and your freezer is just not cooling? If no motor noise, look for a reliable and trustworthy appliance repair person. If the damage is costly, try to pursue a claim with the power company.

Changing light bulb in a 25 year old freezer


Whatever you do, you MUST unplug the freezer before attempting any repairs... there will not be any release buttons, nor any special installations for water safety... also, take care to avoid cutting yourself on the broken glass..

1) did the whole light bulb glass And internals come out, or is the internal part of the bulb still present?
2) verify that the light bulb is really a screw-in appliance bulb -- look into the center of the broken bulb and see if the metal base has internal ridges -- or if the metal base is smooth on the inside...
3)  if a screw-in appliance bulb:  3a)  if the whole light bulb glass AND internals came out, you will have to probably look very close inside the socket to determine the wall of light bulb base... it should be very thin and flexible and very unlikely you can unscrew it directly -- I've had to take needle-nosed pliers and gently bend and twist until the bulb base came out...
3b)  if part of the glass remains as well as the internal stem, I have heard that one could cut a potato in half and then push the internal part of the potato onto the broken end of the bulb and gently unscrew the bulb by twisting the potato... never tried this so I don't know if it will work -- if the internal stem is still intact, I'd use my fingers and try to gently turn it to unscrew the bulb
4) if it has smooth inside wall -- this is probably a bulb with small exterior pins -- the base should be a little more thicker than the screw-in type, so you should be able to push the bulb base in -- a little give in the spring holding it in -- if you feel this give, then turn carefully counterclockwise and it should pop out...
Again, turn off all electrical power to the freezer, Pull the Plug before attempting any repairs... remove all glass and handle with care...
