What are the lights?

I have an older Kenmore 12.8 freezer, obtained 2nd hand with no manuals. There are 3 lights (L to R - amber, green, red) and a switch on the lid. Can anyone tell me what they're for?

Re: What are the lights?

I cannot find any manual or information on the 3 lights. I would assume that the green light means everything is OK, the red means current problem, and the amber means manual defrost is due. Sorry, this is the best I can do. Later.

Red and Orange light staying on on my whirlpool chest freezer

try a total defrost,to clear any internal ice(every 12 months)then switch on and if you have a rapid freeze button leave on for 24 hours to get back to normal operating temp.if you have hard ice around the door seals then you have an air leak which you must sort out(try using a hot cloth to warm seals back into shape.....seals should fit all round, all the time.
