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.

Hi I lost my manual to my westpoint tropical chest freezer, and wanted to find out how the fast freezer switch works. Does it mean when i switch it off the freezer goes off? or is it just a switch to help...


Hi
Normally a fast freeze button is just that, it turns the compressor on permanently to freeze things down quickly.
I suspect that your run light is linked to the thermostat, and does not indicate that the freezer is turned off but that the temperature of the freezer is above the temperature set on the thermostat and the compressor is running to bring the temperature down. Once the temperature is at or below the thermostat temperature then the compressor will stop and the red light probably goes out, indicating the the freezer is at the right temperature.
It won't go out with the fast freeze on because to freeze food quickly the thermostat is by-passed and the compressor runs continuously.
Hope this helps.

High Temp light will not go off even though the freezer seems to be working. Compressor does not stop running


What makes a compressor to run constant is the thermostat. Bang on it to see if it will turn off. turn the setting to 1. if it still wont shut off replace cold control (aka thermostat)
worry about the light later hope this was helpful

Either your defrost timer, defrost heater or defrost thermostat has failed. All parts are located behind the lower back panel inside the freezer. Most likely are the defrost heater and defrost thermostat.

Temperature control may have failed. Thermostat causes compressor to cycle on and off with temperature in the refrigerator section. If the compressor is not trying to run and is cold to the touch no power is getting to it. compressor is located in back on the bottom.

Additionally the defrost timer may have stopped working while in the defrost position. Locate the timer and rotate the clutch head screw clockwise a small amount and if the compressor starts and runs replace the timer.
