Check the bulb, check the tabs within the socket, check the door light switch.

Please, unplug fridge when testing these. We'd like to hear from you again.

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.

I have a GE chest freezer and the exterior green light has started flashing. The freezer is less than a year old.


Is this just a "Power-on" light to let you know it's plugged in and has power? This is probably just a "neon" (although the actual gas inside is hydrogen for the green color) bulb and sometimes they will do the flickering thing literally forever. In a way it's a good thing as it makes you look at it. If it really concerns you, or if it is actually a warning that something is going wrong (it should say in the manual, you DO have the manual don't you?) have it fixed under the warranty.

General electric 5.0 chest freezer has water coming all over the floor.


The reason this happens is because the defrost timer is not turning back on when it needs to, causing the freezer to thou out and overfill the drip tray sitting on top of the compressor. A new defrost timer should be available from the local refrigeration wholesalers in your area.

Chest Freezer not cooling


Please don't rate this solution, as anything but FixYa brings my rating down, but here's what you've got:
You have a refrigerant leak (commonly referred to a Freon, but these days usually R134A refrigerant). Some refrigerant has leaked, so you are still getting some cooling, but there is not enough refrigerant left to cool throughout the entire evaporator coils. This is NOT a repairable condition, as the coils are foamed in place and not accessable for leak repair. If this unit is under 5 years old (typical sealed system warranty) the manufacturer will most likely replace your freezer with a new one. If over 5 years, you are out of luck. Buy a replacement freezer.

Kenmore 23.1 cf Chest Freezer not cooling below 14F


Make sure everything is working, I.E. compressor, fans. Now I need to know if the freezer shuts off at 14 degrees, or does it continue to run without making temp. If it shuts off, then the first place to look is the thermostat. It may be out of calibration. If it continues to run, then the solution may be as simple as cleaning the condenser coil. or the defrost has malfunctioned somehow. Defrost probleams will cause excess ice on the inside coil. You may need to remove the panels to see how much ice is on it. It sounds like the compressor is good, as it is pretty cold. Just not cold enough. A deep freeze should be at least 0.
