Green light on chest freezer flickering?


this just means the light is burning out (loosing its filament) it does not effect the operation of the freezer, it just is an indicator that you have power at the unit.

Magic Chef HMCF7WI is the green light suppose to go off ?


I not 100% sure but believe this is the power light so it should remain on when the freezer calls for cooling and go off when satisfied. If the chest wont stay cold then it sounds like the stat is gone. If it is digital, there may be a power card issue but most chest freezers are run on a standard thermostat with the capillary running up into the base of the unit.

Magic Chef Chest Freezer MCCF5WBX is not getting power, green light not on


Check your outlet with something else that will work, like a radio. If the green light does not come on, then check the wiring. The green light should be on even if the freezer has reached it's temperature. That is simply a light to indicate that power is at the receptacle.

Why is the power light flickering on my Emerson 3.5 cu. Ft. Freezer chest model CF450


Just noticed your question from 2012 - my answer is probably irrelevant by now, but here goes. The power on light is of the neon lamp type, and they will often fail after a year or so, typically by flickering, then getting dimmer and eventually going out. If you feel confident, you can replace this lamp for only a few bucks, but it does require removal and disassembly of the control unit. It would probably cost more than the freezer is worth to have an appliance tech do this. The lamp has no bearing on the compressor function; the freezer will continue to work with or without the lamp. If you're concerned about food loss, you might consider investing 25 or 30 bucks in a freezer alarm. Hope this helps.

I have a kenmore chest freezer model 19502/19702. I had it unpluged for 5 months. When I plugede it back in the power light flickers. Tryed other outlet. Other then that it seems to be working


We purchased this same Kenmore chest freezer model 19502/19702 in 2010. In less than 2 years the compressor quit. If you do a search on this model you will see dozens of complaints. Don't waste your time or money on this freezer.

THE GREEN POWER LIGHT FLICKERS, AND COOLS ONLY WHEN THE FAST FREEZE POWER BUTTON IS TURNED ON


This sounds like the freezer stat is gone. If it is digital, there may be a power card issue but most chest freezers are run on a standard thermostat with the capillary running up into the base of the unit. Whilst sourcing the part, put a standard socket timer on to the plug to stop the unit running all the time.

I have a GE chest freezer and the exterior green light has started flashing. The freezer is less than a year old.


Is this just a "Power-on" light to let you know it's plugged in and has power? This is probably just a "neon" (although the actual gas inside is hydrogen for the green color) bulb and sometimes they will do the flickering thing literally forever. In a way it's a good thing as it makes you look at it. If it really concerns you, or if it is actually a warning that something is going wrong (it should say in the manual, you DO have the manual don't you?) have it fixed under the warranty.
