SOURCE: my westinghouse freestyle freezer model

that's the defrost timer it should cut off for thirty minutes for every eight hours of compressor time for self defrost now compressor time is not regular time as the thermostat shuts the compressor off every now and the when the freezer reaches proper temputure it works off accumulated run time and no you didn't turn anything that will hurt are you having problems with it cooling or you just noticed it was off

SOURCE: Red alarm light is on on Westinghouse upright freezer

Most probably during transportation either the coolant(previously freon gas) may have leaked out so the pressure on the cooling pipeline causing the red alarm because the compressor will overheat if the fridge is kept running at very cold thermostat readings and no effect of cooling the fridge will ultimately result in the compressor getting burnt. However fist have look at thermostat setting knob which could have loosened during transportation and just pushed into the spindle without knowing the correct angle, thus even though it looks as if on high cool but could also be the lowest setting..........sodeep

My Westinghouse Freestyle Freezer FJ383 wobbles on the floor. How do I fix?


There are feet on each coner that can be turned to make them go up or down. you may need a person to slightly lift or tilt the unit and a pair of strong pliers to get the feet turning.

After defrosting, red alarm light on, green power light off. Westinghouse Silhouette FR393Q freezer.


Alarm means that the unit is overtemp for a freezer. Your breaker was likely overloaded if the same issue didn't follow the machine to the next outlet... If the alarm stays on when the unit is clearly freezing, you have some type of control problem. That model number is incomplete/incorrect.

Why is the red light flashing on my zft810fw freezer when it is freezing ok inside


Under normal operating conditions, the internal
temperature of the freezer will ensure the longterm
conservation of the stored food.
When such temperature rises above a certain
level (-12 °C), the appliance will trigger an
acoustic and light alarm. The light alarm is a
blink red light (Red Alarm Indicator Light), while
the acoustic alarm is an intermittent sound.
You can stop the acoustic alarm by pressing
the Acoustic Signal Stop Switch once.
When switching on the freezer for the first
time, the Red Alarm Indicator Light will
blink until the internal temperature has reached
a level required for the safe conservation of frozen
food.

Where can I download a service manual for my Westinghouse Upright Freezer Model FJ303 as I think there is something wrong with the defrost system


Go to Westinghouse web site and see if they are available there. If not , call them and have themsend one. Your defrost system is should be defrosting 2-3times a day. Is it not defrosting at all or is there an ice buildup.

Defroster get red hot


Kenmore Frostless Upright freezer model# 23971. The alarm sounded, all contents in freezer is frozen solid. We turned the alarm off, but the red light continues to blink. How do you reset the alarm and stop the red light from flashing? It has been 3 days now and every time we have check to see if the contents has started to defrost, there is no signs of defrosting, everything inside of the freezer remains frozen solid.

Hi my westinghouse freezer keeps turning itself off. there is a glowing red button and everything just defrosts and then it will turn itself on again, randomly. It is a freestyle 380litre with a 6 hour...


Freezers need a defrost timer to turn it off for short durations so that the coils are not so covered in ice that it can't transfer heat.  Make sure that you don't use an under-rated extension cord.  Check for any fans that may be blocked from turning.

Westinghouse fj383


I have a Westinghouse upright freezer FJ383M-R. The red light was on bright and the top half of freezer was not working. Turns out it was a switch that turns the defrost cycle on was faulty. Serveman replaced borken part. Now it is fine. Was much cheaper than replacing freezer.
