On the side of the compressor you will see 2-3 wires running into an electrical connection reseat this first. if still no operation replace teh relay. you can purchase thru any reputable appliance parts dealer. after replacing the relay if you have no operation then likely problem is seized comp.

Let me know if the compressor is hot and we will know the compressor is trying to start but cannot. Replacing these parts will possibly solve the problem of your freezer being on but not freezing everything, We need to make sure the compressor is running, Thanks Sea Breeze

RED TRIANGLE LIGHT STAYS ON CHEST FREEZER IS 10


defrost cycle is innactive, will ice up shortly and may not turn compressor off, defrost the unit totally(Turn off for 2 days with door open) and remove all water from the unit once done. Restart unit and should work normal for a week or so, ie...defrost cycle...get back to me if this is the case and will sort it from there, wgheaven@yahoo.com.au Russ

My red light is on and the freezer is not making any sound and is not staying cold


The red light indicates temperature zone crucial. Listen for the sound of the compressor. If it's on and appears to be running, check the condenser to see if it is warm. If so, a faulty compressor may be the problem.

Red light on


you should have have let it sit till the compressor equalize if it was running,you may have ruined the ptc overload relay that protects the compressor,try unplugging it and leave it off for an hour,then retry it,if this doesn't help then replace the ptc overload on the compressor body,they just unplug off the compressor

Bosch KGV3120 fridge freezer , compresor not cutting in occasionally and food in fridge gets warm , food in freezer gets a little soft. all lights running.If i unplug /switch off & re-start the unit...


I am not sure but just for good measure>>>
Is your circulating fan working?
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed

Red light is on on bottom panel and buzzer is going off. Inside temp is 20 degrees and outside temp is 25 deg

Your cold control is monitoring the temperature of the refrigerator section and is designed to turn off the compressor to keep things from freezing in that section. If it stays cold long enough outside in your garage the cold control thinks its cold enough and won't turn the compressor on. A makeshift closet to hold a little heat the unit generates will probably help.

Chest freezer


do you have voltage at the compressor? if not you have an open circuit or bad t-stat. if voltage is present and compressor is not running you have a bad start device or bad compessor. if voltage present and compressor runs you have a refrigeration issue get a new freezer.
