Freezer light on but not running

I haven't used my freezer in over a year. I plugged it in and the light comes on, but it isn't running. I left it plugged in over night and still nothing. It is over 5 years old but under 10 (I can't find the manual)

Door was left open all night, how do I reset alarm and indicator light?


Let the unit get back down to temperature, if the alarm doesn't stop when it is cold again, unplug it and count to 30 before plugging it back in.

Why is the red light on my chest freezer on after it was left open overnight?


This is due to the compressor was running all night and faulted out probably due to over heating. You may have to defrost it, turn power off for a while and then start it up again. Been there and done it. Red light should then go off after freezer temp sorted again. If not, you have got problems.

Freezer wont switch off


Needs new thermostat. If trying to switch off and compressor still running, contacts stuck together. Many freezers run like this for years!

Is your compressor kicking on? If not then check the contactor-relay and the capacitor. If that isn't the problem then it is probably your compressor. Which is quite expensive to replace.

You have a problem with the ADC.

Frigidaire has also jumped into the market with an adaptive defrost board. The fresh food section light switch and light bulb must work. To initiate a defrost cycle, open the door and push the light switch in and out 5 times within 6 seconds. The compressor and fans should shut off and the defrost heater should come on. Open the door and push the light switch in and out 5 times within 6 seconds to remove the refrigerator from the defrost mode and back into a cooling mode.



This product comes equipped with an Adaptive Defrost Control (ADC). To activate manual defrost, press and hold the Freezer temperature UP (WARMER) key while pressing the Fresh Food temperature DOWN (COLDER) key 5 times within 6 seconds. A "d" in the freezer temperature window and "F" in the refrigerator temperature window will display when the heater is activated. To deactivate manual defrost, press and hold Freezer temperature UP (WARMER) key while pressing the Fresh Food temperature DOWN (COLDER) key 5 times within 6 seconds. "d" and "F" will be displayed until the defrost cycle is complete. (approx. 8 minutes)

If the freezer was stored and not running for 7 years it may have lost coolant.  Since the compressor is running recharging the coolant may fix the problem.  Hot compressor might indicate low coolant since its motor is immersed in it.
