Green light I just defrosted my freezer and plugged it back in.  the green light isn't lit on the front. I can't remember if it was lit before but it worked great, it was just frosty, so I unplugged it to thaw. i think it is working again but what is the green light for anyway?

    I have the same problem. The green light is no longer working and our freezer has stopped being cold a couple of times, with no apparent reason.

Does the green light come on after freezer is turned back on?

if you turn the freezer off for some time then on again the red light has to come on as an indicator for high temperature it goes off by itself when the freezer attains the required temperature according to the thermostat settings ,that is the lower the settings the faster the red light goes off. the orange light indicates super cooling and the green light indicates power supply.if you turn the two lights off and the freezer still works without the green light on that means that the bulb for the green light is faulty and you don,t need to worry

I have this majic chef freezer about 7 cubic ft. 3 years old turned it off to defrost and when turning it back on it won't get cold?? Compresser is hot so I believe it is working and lights on in front...

I'd let it dry out totally then try it again, some of the electronics may have gotten wet when you defrosted it. Give it a week somewhere warm and dry like a garage. If you didn't attack built up ice in the freezer with a knife while defrosting it it should work after it dries out. Most people end up killing freezers by accidently poking holes in the evap coil while trying to remove built up ice.

Green light does not come on for settings 0 to 4

the ice cream is the clue,if it goes hard then the temp is too low (ice cream best kept at -18C)
either the defrost is not working or interior temp sensor duff.
