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.

Since the motor is running, the compressor it is connected to must also be running. The compressor is the thing that provides the cooling under normal circumstances. The only thing I can think of as to why you are not getting cooling is that the refrigerant charge has leaked out of the system. I don't know anything about the red lights you mention.

I can explain how to do it but you will need a F-Gas certified professional refrigeration technician to do this job.

If you unscrew the 4 screws to the compressor closet, you will see a copper stump on the side of the compressor, that stump used to have an access valve that allows refrigerant to be measured into the refrigeration system. For gas to be reapplied a technician will have to re-braze a valve onto that stump in order to recharge refrigerant into the system.

Are you sure it is a standby light? Usually the orange light is showing you it is in fast freeze. Try switching the orange button off and monitor the temperature. The freezer should cycle on and off, not run continuously.

This means the sensor has determined that the temperature is rising. This can happen if the door was left open (which doesn't appear to be the case with your green light) or an unusual amount of warm food was put into it. If this is not the case you may have a cooling problem. If you can put a thermometer in there and check the temperature, working properly the freezer should be around 0 F. If you have trouble please send the model number from the tag on the freezer. That will help with trouble shooting.

Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer2_bing.gif and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

it is either your thermostat or the overload relay. if it make a loud clicking noise every few minutes than that means it is your overload relay with is on your compressor but if not the it will be your thermostat. try tapping on it.but most likely it will need to be replaced

your low side should read +5psi to 0 psi but not -2 psi. all of your tubing(evap+condenser) coils are inside the walls. it might be under the 5yr sealed system mgf. warrenty

Should be printed on the unit somewhere... look close

Whirlpool 10 cu.... | Answered on May 08, 2009


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.
