No. That is like running it on "high power" full time and could cause it to wear out and stop working much sooner than it's natural life expectancy. It also uses up more than twice the electricity on your electric bill, than it needs to work normally. That setting could also be used in something like a store, where people open it up every few minutes, to keep it cold when it's opened so often.

That switch should only be used for emergencies, like after a power outage, or to quickly freeze foods that were fully thawed and need to be frozen quickly.

Hi!!
No, the fast freeze button should only be activated when you load a warm or lots of items at once. It should disengage by itself after a preprogrammed amount of time. If Ice cream is too hard, check your temp. settings.

Hi I have a Belling BCF10 chest freezer. The power light is not lighting but the freezer is still freezing, what is wrong? Also when should one use the fast freeze switch? Thanks in advance


If the freezer is working properly then the circuit that feeds the power to the power light is not working or the light itself is burned out. Either one or the other.

I have a Skandiluxe CF 136 chest freezer & the orange (fast freeze) light is on all the time.


The compressor won't burn out just because it's running all the time. The plastic fascia pops out easily from behind(take the little panel off on the side) Set the thermostat to the middle of its range and switch the fast freeze off.

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.

Fast freeze light on all the time is this right new belling 100 ltr chest freezer


No check your settings. You may try to unplug it for about a minute and then restart. If that doesn't work, call the mfr. they should help since it is new.

The standby light is still on


Are you sure it is a standby light? Usually the orange light is showing you it is in fast freeze. Try switching the orange button off and monitor the temperature. The freezer should cycle on and off, not run continuously.

The freezer freezes two hard , there are 2 switches on it are they both suppose to be on?? one is orange and one is white.


Well hello...on your freezer...the orange switch is for "fast freeze" and should not be on constantly...only when you want to freeze items really fast.If you have it on...turn it off.Also do you have the temp control set at maximum...If so...try to reduce the seting by one number.If not...leave it as is.Give the freezer about 24 hours to re stablize.That should do it...also...you will notice a reduction in your electric bill as the fast freeze switch causes the unit to draw a greater amount of electricity..MAKE SURE the orange switch is off...I hope this was helpful....PEACE...
