Your problem is more than likely in the light itself. The green light is the indicator that the temperature is in acceptable range.

Green light means that freezer is connected to the mains/electric

Red means that your freezer has not reached minimum working freezing temperature, this is not good news, something may be wrong with your freezer, get it checked by a competent person.
yellow light means that you have switched the fast freeze button on. This yellow switch allows the freezer to run continuously so that the frozen food you brought home from shopping can freeze up quicker. You must not leave this light on for more than 3 hours. It will cause you to waste a lot of electric and will place a lot of stress on the working component in the fridge.

Green light wont come on


Is unit running? Orange switch - is that the fast freeze switch? If on and running, green light faulty. If nothing happening, start with fuse, test the switch and make sure power is to the thermostat.

The light is on but the freezer is not cooling


17513612-zd1td1vvrl1llkwzbg5ljqsk-2-0.jpg
You did not specify which lights are on?

  • The green pilot light will illuminate to show that the appliance is switched on.
  • The red alarm light will also illuminate until the freezer
    reaches the correct temperature.
  • If you press the SUPER button than you start fast freeze function and yellow light will illuminate.
I assume that the freezer is on and the green light is illuminated. This means that the freezer is on and energized.
Also, if freezer does not cooling, means that did not achieve the set temperature should be illuminated the red light (alarm).

Set the thermostat for example in position 4th and after that compressor should be start.
If compressor running but not cooling, defective is the system which circulates gas.
If compressor does not start, then is faulty thermostat, compressor or the wiring.

Does the green light come on after freezer is turned back on?


if you turn the freezer off for some time then on again the red light has to come on as an indicator for high temperature it goes off by itself when the freezer attains the required temperature according to the thermostat settings ,that is the lower the settings the faster the red light goes off. the orange light indicates super cooling and the green light indicates power supply.if you turn the two lights off and the freezer still works without the green light on that means that the bulb for the green light is faulty and you don,t need to worry

My chest freezer (10 years old) won't freeze. Motor is running and the red indicator light remains on, but neither the amber or green lights are working.


Hi,

Let's start by diagnosing the freezer;

Fan problem is one of the most common reasons for the freezer to start failing, this is called "frost free failure." Ice can build up on the evaporator coils over time, and this ice builds up until it starts blocking the fan. The fan is responsible for circulating cold air throughout the freezer, so if it is blocked the freezer will not be able to freeze any food. You can usually check this by removing an access panel in the back of the freezer to inspect the coils. If ice is built up on the coils, a hairdryer can assist in defrosting them.

It's also possible that the fan is not running at all. If the fan is burned out or the motor isn't running, cold air can't circulate through the freezer and everything will melt. You can normally hear the fan motor switch on and off from time to time. Listen for it and if you can't hear it coming on for an extended period of time, the motor may need repair or replacement. The wires connecting to the fan may be the problem, preventing the fan from receiving electricity.

Several other problems could be keeping your freezer from freezing:

There could be leaks in one or several of the hoses in the refrigerator, which results in the cold air being lost instead of circulating properly throughout the fridge and freezer.

If you have the freezer so full that the cold air can't circulate, your food will thaw even though the freezer isn't malfunctioning. Always leave some space open in the freezer and try to not store food right up against the cooling vents.

The thermostat might have shorted out, which means the freezer can't accurately determine how cold it is. If this is the case, the refrigerator would probably not be working, either.

If your defrost drain becomes clogged, the water in the line will just refreeze over and over again, which could damage the lines as well as the fan. Always check the drain and make sure no sludge is building up in it if you have a self-defrosting refrigerator.

Always try to keep the freezer door closed for long periods of time. The more the door is opened, the more warm air is let in and cold air is released. If the door is opened frequently, the freezer could be warming faster than the fridge can cool it, which will thaw your food.

Regards.

Are you sure compressor is running? If it is make sure the evap fan is running. You should be able to hear the fan when you open the door. If ypou do not hear a fan running then fan has gone bad. 4390914 and approx cost is rediculous in my mind but it is approx. 150.00 to 160.00 . Crazy for a fan motor.
