Chest freezer stopped freezing but boost button works

Norfrost A6AEW about 2 yrs old - I just noticed that it is not cold, but when I press the boost button it sounds like the compressor is working, but there is no noise when "boost" is turned offf. The green "on" light is not working on the unit. Any suggestions please?

SOURCE: freezer not freezing

it would apear the stat is the fault. the thermostat is monitoring the temperature of the inner liner and tubing. if the compresor isnt actuly staying on the only part controling it is the stat. if you have the knoledge i would sugest you bypass the contol with the unit unpluged and the plug it in to conferm the fault was the control. p/s you may have a friend who has some knoledge . the control is a simple switch. just enshure the unit is unpluged. hope this helped

SOURCE: i recently bought a norfrost chest freezer model

Can't help I'm afraid, but we have exactly the same problem with exactly the same model. Ours did work for nearly 2 years, but recently only works with the boost button pressed in. I suspect the thermostat is not working as the boost button over-rides the thermostat to give max cooling. Your freezer is new so get it exchanged; it certainly doesn't need to be full to work!

I have a deep freezer,the light is on but doesn't freeze. It's only 2 yrs old what could be the problem?I unpluged it and waited 10 mins pluged back in and nothing the red light stayed on but...


Well a freezer is easy to repair. The circuit goes from one side of the power cord to the cold control and down to the compressor then out to the other side of the power cord. Id the control or compressor relay is open then she won't freeze. All the parts to it are listed HERE.
From the list I see an overload for the compressor. If that one is open it won't freeze. Bypass the temp control wires to see if she runs.

See if you have 120 volts at the compressor if you do do you hear any clicking sound at compressor if not replace compressor Start Relay/Overload if you hear clicking sound the compressor may be bad or Start Relay/Overload the only way to know is to replace the compressor Start Relay/Overload. If you do not have 120 volts at the compressor jump out the thermostat you should have 120 volts at the compressor now if not you may have a defrost timer Prob. if this is shelf defrost unit check timer turn knob to see if it starts.

We got a philips whirlpool chest freezer my husband pressed orange button as he was told it was turbo boost freezers only cold at bottom and red light is on


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.
