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.

Freezer contents thawed, freezer cuts on but only runs a few seconds and cuts back off


Compressors do not usually shut down. Either there is a power interruption to the motor caused by the power switch or thermostat or the motor has developed an internal short whereby it uses excessive power causing it to overdraw/overheat and have the clixon circuit shut it down.

I have a baumatic fridge freezer whch appears dead the plug fuse is ok and the electroic panal has been tested ok any ideas


Hello, Kindly check below matters on your freezer:
1. Compressor for defective. Please check the sound compressor, if still normal check the refrigerant . Please top up the gas if needed. If it is totally dead, you need to replace it with new one. 2. Thermostat for malfunction. This part will trigger the compressor to running and stop. You can test its operation while your compressor working normal. If your compressor is defective, the thermostat will not work. So please fix the item #1 before you go the latter item.
Regards,
