Lost philips freezer manual

Hi My mum has lost the manual for her Philips fridge freezer ARG 151/PH/01.  Does anyone know a) how to defrost it, and b) what the row of lights and sliders indicate at the top? There's a brown slider that covers an orange light with CONTR by the side. Then a red light in the middle, and then a green light with a brown slider with PILOT by the side.
I'd be really grateful for some help with this.

The orange button is the "turbo boost" - for reduzing the temperature the fast way. Mostly used when first time use or you put in a lot of unfrozen things at once. When reaching optimal temperture it goes off automatically. The red one is the alert button. Not sure about the green one. Under normal conditions none of the lights is on.

I used to sell freezers.the green light tells you the mains is on and the freezer should work.The red light is to inform you the freezer is not low enough temperature,and the orange light is a fast freeze light to over ride the thermostat for use when introducing fresh food.It should not be used for prolonged periods as it may burn out the compressor although in your case you already have a problem and should seek advice or buy another freezer.If you get a cheap freezer thermometer it should confirm what I am saying.

Orange switch only by passes the thermostat. It sounds like your freezer is either out of gas or the cooling fan (if there is one) is not working.

We ve had the Bosch fridge-freezer (KGU3201GB/01) for about 10 years. Suddenly this morning the freezer started losing temperature, which rose to -13 degrees and the alarm went off. We put the...


Hi Robert, sounds like the unit is not defrosting.

Try this to indicate defost issues.
1. relocate food in the freezer, turn the unit off for 2 days and leave the door open, this will allow total defrost.
2. clean, then restart unit with door closed, after and every 2 hours check temp, I feel you may find it will get to its operating temp reasonably fast and should stay there.

If this is the case, I suspect the defrost heater element has failed and needs replacing, this is the most common cause of your type of issue.

Hope that helps and please dont forget to vote. Regards Russ

Fridge won't get cold


You need to defrost it and remove rear panel in freezer compartment.After you defrost it pour hot water in the hole in the center rear area of freezer to make sure it is draining good.After that take down model# from the inside of fridge on the side .You will need a defrost timer You can use the model number and and your local parts depot will order it acourding to the model.80% of the time the fridge is iced up that is what is causing it;Hope i helped:) Let me know if there are anymore thing you want to know before you try

Fridge not getting cold


you have a defrost problem.when you open your freezer door and look at the back panel look and see if their is frost built up.if so that means you do have a defrost problem.you will need to pull panel off and defrost coils.then you can check your defrost thermostat which is round and has 2 wires that go to it.it sits at the top of coils.see if it seperated.if so that is your problem also check defrost heater see if any breaks in it.if those check out then could be defrost timer which is located in ref.side.it would help to know what brand it is.it sounds like a side by side ref,but dont know what brand.

Fridge and freezer both freezing


If your control is not turned up too high you likely have an insensitive one. In this case it needs to be replaced with a new one, not too serious.

Fridge Freezer in Autodefrost mode


Power surge can cause problems such as you have. I am not familiar with your brand but it sounds like the defrost timing circuit is your problem. Defrosting the surface of the back wall is not the answer. The cooling coil in the freezer is behind the back wall normally and a surface defrost does not do the trick of defrosting the coil. Have an appliance service tech check it out for you.

Liebherr CNES 666 freezer - loud fan (?) noise


AbiH, the likelihood of frost inside the fan housing is high. You should manually defrost the unit. Unplug and use a hair dryer to melt as much water as possible. Be aware that hair dryers and water do not mix well! If it happens again, you may have low gas and require a service person.
