SOURCE: self defrosting fridge/freezer

Good day,
That is normal if the room or area is too cold. If the room temperature drops below 55 degrees Fahrenheit then that problem will start to show up.
All manufacturers state the machine will start to unbalance below that temperature.

SOURCE: my bosch classixx freezer red warning light is on,

Unknown, if the door was left open for more then 4 hours, then it will take about 3 to 4 hours for the freezer to reach the temperature again. So the best advice for you is to wait another few hours. If you are still having issues after that then you do have a issue and the issue would seem to be with the door, either not sealing completely or the coil on the freezer is bad. Let me know in a few hours how your freezer is doing, if there is still a issue I will walk you through some other steps but do not see a reason to do that yet.

Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Water freezes in bottom freezer and then leeks onto floor


Hello,


If your chest freezer is showing signs of age, it may begin leaking. There are a few methods for troubleshooting faulty chest freezers but knowing some of the obvious signs of why it might leak can be very useful if you need to fix it yourself. Leaking is not limited to older models so be aware that certain maintenance procedures can help prevent leaks in newer models.

Understanding Changeable Parts Prior to Troubleshooting
There are not that many serviceable or changeable parts inside a chest freezer. A chest freezer works on a very simple basis. It contains evaporator coils, condenser coils, a compressor, a compressor overload, a relay and a thermostat. These are the basic moving parts of a chest freezer but some of them are not serviceable.

The condenser coils condense the water and the evaporator coils disperse excess water caused by the freezing process. The compressor is a heating component which compresses excess water and recycles it through the system.

Defrosting
Remove the contents of your chest freezer and place them in an alternative area to keep them frozen. Unplug and defrost your chest freezer before you do any troubleshooting or maintenance. Wipe and clean the inside of the freezer so that when you plug it back in it, will free of any grime or loose bits of debris. A clean freezer will also help to promote visibility when it comes to fixing leaks.

Where is the Leak?
Once you have defrosted your freezer, you need to establish which part of the freezer the leak is coming from. It could be coming from the inside of the freezer and this would indicate a thermostat issue. Alternatively, it could be coming from the freezing unit at the back of the freezer. Water always finds a way to escape so your leak could be restricted to one place but the actual cause could be elsewhere. Locate the drain tube which is normally found at the back of the freezer. You will probably have to unscrew or unclip the backing panel.

Check the Drain Hole
If the drain hole on your chest freezer has become blocked for any reason, you will need to clear it thoroughly to continue getting the best performance from your chest freezer. The drain hole is a component within the lower works of the freezer through which excess water runs to be recycled.

Compressor Issues
Your chest freezer contains a compressor which evaporates the excess water from the freezer. The freezer will defrost excess ice and the water flows down the drain tube to a pan where the heat of the compressor evaporates the water. If your compressor has failed, the leak will be caused by the water failing to evaporate. Have a repair contractor replace your compressor or, if this is not cost-effective, you may need to buy a new freezer.

Thermostat
If your freezer is not freezing at all and is dispersing water in several places, you may well have a thermostat failure. Check that your freezer is cycling correctly prior to making changes or altering the thermostat. Only if the freezer is not cycling are you likely to need to change the thermostat. If you have checked all the parts of your freezer and you still cannot locate the leak, calling in a service technician might be the best answer if you can not handle it yourself..
Do take care in solving the problem....

Does the kenmore cold spot chest freeze model 253.8193610 have a defrost timer


Chest freezers don't normally self defrost. They just freeze. To defrost them, you must shut them off.

Red and Orange light staying on on my whirlpool chest freezer


try a total defrost,to clear any internal ice(every 12 months)then switch on and if you have a rapid freeze button leave on for 24 hours to get back to normal operating temp.if you have hard ice around the door seals then you have an air leak which you must sort out(try using a hot cloth to warm seals back into shape.....seals should fit all round, all the time.
