    Ok well good news is it is making normal sounds. If you hear anything like knocking or vibrating then you're getting into the compressor. If you do not hear the compressor running then you have a bigger problem on your hands.

    Most cases this turns out to be a Freon issue. If the evaporator coils inside the freezer are only partially froze, the freezer cannot get down to the proper temperature. However, the refrigerator side doesn't need to be as cold, so it appears to be fine. When you have a compressor failure or a Freon issue it's best to have a professional repair the problem for you. It takes special tools and licenses to work with the Freon.

    Another thing that may cause the freezer to appear not to be working is the ice maker. If your freezer has an ice maker installed an you are not using it, make sure that it is turned off. The icemaker will continue to run through it's cycles even if there is not water. The only problem is that it goes through the cycles much faster. And every cycle it goes through the heater under the icemaker tray comes on. So anything that is close to the icemaker will thaw. Bread will not freeze in this case and your ice cream will stay soft.

MODEL AFG 5496-C FREEZER WHICH BUTTON SHOULD BE LIT WHEN SWITCHED ON TO FREEZE


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.

Adjust the temperature control for the freezer to a normal setting. Fast freeze is only for when new products are put in that need to be frozen. This locks the system into a continuous run mode and could be responsible for the freezing condition in the refrigerator section. Check the temperatures with a thermometer as the sensor for the freezer temperature could be bad causing the light to come on.
