My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
There is no reset for the alarm. The alarm goes off when you are not maintaining temperature.
During the time the door was ajar, warm air got into the freezer either icing up and locking the cooling fan or forming a block of ice on the cooling coils (Restricting cooling air flow.)
The best thing you can do, unless you want a $300.00 plus service call to defrost everything, is to turn power off to the freezer. Open the freezer door. Have plenty of old towels to soak up the water in the bottom of the freezer as it defrost.
You did not provide a model number which is located on the inside wall of the freezer. Every 8-10 hours your freezer will completely shout down for 20-30 minutes where only the light works and the defrost heater turns on. The ice build up is too much for the defrost heater to handle.
In some freezers the defrost mode is in the control board, in others it is a separate component that you can repeat trip using a flat head screw drive.
if you have frozen water droplets on everything most likely the door was left open and when the warm air mixes with the cold air in the freezer this happens,look at the top of the door or the sides of the freezer door,also up on the ceiling where the light switch is,if there's ice there the door was left open,common problem with freezers on the bottom,you can shut down the machine,and with a hair dryer blow the hot air into the vent holes in the back inside wall of the freezer and if ice is on ceiling melt that out too.good luck.
Yes, when you open the freezer door, the small red light should start to flash, you should see a flap on the left side wall, push it in so it is flush with the wall, now the eyes should see each other and the red light should go to a steady on, put your other finger over the other eye on the right and the red light should start flashing again, if not then you most likely have a eye malfunction. Hope this helps,
The flap is what open and closes to allow more or less cold air in from the freezer. There could be ice buildup inside the freezer causing this or a mechanical noise of the flap and motor running. See if you can see it from the freezer side of the vent.
The air in the freezer is circulated by a fan, there are a number of possibilities
1. Is the internal fan running, this may be switched by the door opening, to test push the small switch on the door frame ( if fitted). If the fan is running go to
2. If the fan is running can you feel air coming out of the bottom of the duct inside at the bottom.
3. If there is no air coming out of the duct the duct is possibly blocked with ice, or the cooling coil at the top is iced up.
4. If there is no air flow then the best and quickest option is to empty the freezer, store your goods elsewhere, switch it off, use a wedge to keep the door partly open and leave off for at least 24 hours. You may find a large pool of water on the floor after this and you will also need to dry out the inside of the cabinet.
Icing of this type is caused by
1. Door not being closed properly, door misaligned or faulty door seals.
2. Putting "hot" product (over 2deg C / 34 deg f) into the freezer.
3. Not covering or sealing product being stored in the freezer.
4. Defrost timing not working (ask your service guy) for this and the rest I'm afraid
5. Defrost heater not working
6. Blocked condensate drain
7. Faulty thermostat, keeps on cooling
The defrost system is not working. Ours had a sensor go bad that clips on the coils inside the freezer and can tell when their is front. When it is not working the frost just keeps building up because it down not call for the defrost heating wire to ever come on. It could also be that the wire is bad or that the control panel is not responding the the sensor. It sounds liek the issue is no defrost cycle though.
when you open the freezer door do you hear the fan blowing,also is there any like snow or frost on the freezer wall inside the freezer,touch it and make sure or was the door left open?is there frozen water droplets on the food packages and on the racks,let me know what you find and send the model number,open the fridge door and look on the left side wall near the ceiling
1. Remove all of the food from inside the freezer and place it into the ice chest. Use more than one ice chest, if necessary. Cover the food with ice from a 10 lb. bag of ice. Alternatively, place all of the food from your freezer into the refrigerator compartment, packed tightly together.
2. Place one or two 10 lb. bags of ice into one or two large bowls inside the refrigerator compartment to keep the food chilled. Keep the door to the refrigerator tightly closed and avoid opening it during the freezer defrosting process.
3. Unplug the unit and leave the freezer door open.
4. Let the freezer defrost overnight or for at least eight hours.
5. Use the towels to wipe up the melted ice.
6. Plug in a hair dryer and direct it to the interior of the freezer to melt any remaining ice from the walls and door. Be sure to direct it into the vents of the freezer, too.
7. Wipe up any water from ice melted with the hair dryer from inside and around the freezer.
8. Plug the freezer back into the outlet, and return food still solidly frozen to the freezer compartment from the ice chest or refrigerator. Use any thawed foods within a day or two or discard.
You have a bad control board , located behind the refrig , mounted to the bottom left corner , inside the white plastic box . Also , the temp adjustment light , should be out . This board , is held onto the refrig , by those 2 , 1/4 " screws . It is easily replaceable , and costs about $80.00 .
