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.

RE: Frigidaire upright freezer. Where is the "temperature alarm on/off button on the upright freezers...The alarm keeps buzzing..I want to turn it off. The instruction manual only shows location...

Hi, not knowing the model number, I would say that if you can't see the reset button in or around the perimeter of the door, as the thermostat is located high up toward the top of the thermostatic expansion valve, it doesn't have the alarm button on it. What I would do, is locate the alarm buzzer, unplug it and clip the wire going to it. No harm done, and you can always reconnect the alarm. For the alarm to be going off when the temperature is good, the thermostat is out of calibration. If its freezing good, just clip the wire, no harm done.

Whirlpool freezer AFG 8060 indicates red light and sounds alarm. Temp always held at -16 to -20, though now indicates only -1.

Please check : - Your door for small leak ( gasket / seals) - Temperature sensor for malfunction. A failed sensor will show wrong data.

Whirlpool upright freezer AFG823NF-Thermostat not working properly

JennyT just trying to help with this. I assume this is a self defrost model. If so then is there an ice build up on the back wall? If so then the unit isn't defrosting. That is why pushing the Fast Freeze button is no longer working. You can get by however. Remove all the food from the freezer, put a vacumn in the freezer and shut the door. Turn on the vacumn, this will pull the warm air thru the freezer and in 30 minutes to an hour it will be defrosted enough to work until you can get someone to replace the 1 of 3 parts that the defrost system uses. The vacumn is what I use to defrost my nonself defrosting freezer. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
