Having the door open has introduced an excess of humidity and therefore condensate/ice into the freezer coils. The coils are therefore iced over. You have choices depending upon your skill level. You might: allow the unit to sit unplugged with the door open until the excess ice thaws out and wets the floor underneath, which may take from 6 to 24 hours. You might: do this, adding some heat source in the freezer to accelerate the process. You might: locate the defrot timer, advancing the timer until a click is heard indicating the unit is in defrost, and repeat after about 15 minutes to defrost the unit with it's own heater. You might: let it recover just as it is but it will take a couple of days to clear itself.

No alarm sounding but red light is flashing?


Warning light (red)
If the temperature warning light (4) lights up, it
indicates that the temperature within the freezer has
reached a level where the safe food storage is no
longer ensured. When the freezer is first switched on, the warning light will stay on until the temperature has dropped to
a safe level for the storage of frozen food.

Temperature acoustic alarm
This appliance incorporates an alarm which gives off
an audible signal whenever the warning light comes
on. This signal can be temporarily stopped by
depressing the push button for fast-freezing (6).
The fast-freezing push button can be released as
soon as the warning light is off.

Open door acoustic alarm
This appliance also incorporates an alarm which
sounds if the door is left open for more than 60
seconds. The signal will be stopped when the door is
closed again.

yes it must be shut off and completely defrosted.with doors left open it usually takes about 2 days. what happened if you look at the back wall in the freezer from the inside you will see a bunch of ice and there is more behind that panel you are looking at. it froze up the coils so that no air will get through them. good luck rich

Left my upright freezer open a crack and now the


Hi,

With the door left open moisture would get into the unit behind the walls and into the duct work. The only way to fix this right is to unload it and let it unthaw for a day or so open. Once it is all defrosted and restarted it should be fine again.

Its not freezing!! keeping things cool, but not freezing


I would definitely start by checking if the fan is working. Note that the fan is switched off when you open the door, so you need to press the door switch and then check if it is working. If not, that will be the problem.

Freezer defrosted and the motor won't start back up.


From what I can gather, you have a self defrosting freezer and the "motor" you speak of is the fan inside the freezer. If this is correct, do this:
Unplug freezer. Unload all food into coolers or other freezer space. Leave freezer door open for a day to allow it to manually defrost. Plug freezer back in after minimum 24 hours and confirm fan running and cooling before loading back up with food.
