Why do both green light and orange light stay on all the time?


Without knowing much about Frigidaire , I would say at a guess that the green light would mean there is power on and the orange would be that the temperature isn't down to what you have selected yet. Most freezers have these 2 lights or a display showing the same. Check that the freezer hasn't frosted up and the food has frozen correctly. If you have a thermometer, most domestic freezers should run at around -18 degrees celcius. If its a larger type for long term storage, the freezer would normally run at around -20.

Re lights lit on freezer


Red light lit on freezer means that is not reaches operating temperature.

Most often the old freezer has three indicator lights.
- Green light : that it is brought to a power source and turned on - Red light : means that the temperature is above -18 degrees
- orange light : pressing the so-called SUPER-switch which means that the compressor is running continuously. The SUPER-button switch on a few hours before you begin deep-freeze foods. Freezing time depending on foods quantity (kg). With old freezer must be careful to turn off the switch S (orange light) when the red light goes out or when foods are frozen, otherwise after a few days may burn out the compressor. You should be following the instructions from user manual.
In new freezer managed by the electronics, this function has a predetermined maximum duration, in order to protect the compressor, and can have different marketing names like "shopping".....

Green light wont come on


Is unit running? Orange switch - is that the fast freeze switch? If on and running, green light faulty. If nothing happening, start with fuse, test the switch and make sure power is to the thermostat.

We got a philips whirlpool chest freezer my husband pressed orange button as he was told it was turbo boost freezers only cold at bottom and red light is on


Orange switch only by passes the thermostat. It sounds like your freezer is either out of gas or the cooling fan (if there is one) is not working.

Lost manual want to find out what green light is for and when does it come on running freezer on boost at this time


The green light generally indicates that the compressor is running. If running on boost, it may be on continuously.

Philips whirlpool AFG 027 freezer


The orange button is the "turbo boost" - for reduzing the temperature the fast way. Mostly used when first time use or you put in a lot of unfrozen things at once. When reaching optimal temperture it goes off automatically. The red one is the alert button. Not sure about the green one. Under normal conditions none of the lights is on.
