Large philips whirlpool freezer. i have bought second hand but have no manual. need to know which lights at the front should stay on. there is a push button which is orange but dont know if this should stay on and if the other lights should be illuminated.
The orange button is the "turbo boost" - for reduzing the temperature the fast way. Mostly used when first time use or you put in a lot of unfrozen things at once. When reaching optimal temperture it goes off automatically. The red one is the alert button. Not sure about the green one. Under normal conditions none of the lights is on.

Re: philips whirlpool AFG 027 freezer
IT SOUNDS TO ME LIKE YOUR FREEZER HAS AN ALARM FOR TEMPERATURE. THE ORANGE BUTTON MAY TURN THE ALARM ON AND OFF. ONE LIGHT WILL BE A POWER INDICATOR LIGHT AND THE OTHER THE ALARM ON INDICATOR LIGHT. IF THE FREEZER IS WARM AND YOU TURN ON THE ORANGE BUTTON, A BUZZER SHOULD SOUND. ONCE THE TEMP GETS DOWN BELOW 10 DEGREES, THE ALARM SHOULD STOP.

Green light means that freezer is connected to the mains/electric
Red means that your freezer has not reached minimum working freezing temperature, this is not good news, something may be wrong with your freezer, get it checked by a competent person.
yellow light means that you have switched the fast freeze button on. This yellow switch allows the freezer to run continuously so that the frozen food you brought home from shopping can freeze up quicker. You must not leave this light on for more than 3 hours. It will cause you to waste a lot of electric and will place a lot of stress on the working component in the fridge.
Could anybody please tell me what the colored bottons for this freezer mean. I just got one second hand, plugged it in and there is a red light on. There is also a botton with an S and a circle with a line. I'm guessing that might be on botton but I don't know for sure. It hanks to anyone willing to help!! :)
try a total defrost,to clear any internal ice(every 12 months)then switch on and if you have a rapid freeze button leave on for 24 hours to get back to normal operating temp.if you have hard ice around the door seals then you have an air leak which you must sort out(try using a hot cloth to warm seals back into shape.....seals should fit all round, all the time.
the harvest mode is started when the ice cube reaches around 14 degrees so lower the temp in the freezer or decrease the size of the cubes also make sure the fan vents in the freezer is unblocked. check the temp in the freezer should be around 0 degrees.
You Said, I have a Whirlpool upright freezer AFG 371/H there is a digital display
and lights and buttons, on/off temp alarm etc running across the top of
the freezer. None of this works but the freezer is still freezing. i
have no idea what the temp is.
I think you should try unplugging it for 5 minutes and then try restarting it and see if it reset.
I used to sell freezers.the green light tells you the mains is on and the freezer should work.The red light is to inform you the freezer is not low enough temperature,and the orange light is a fast freeze light to over ride the thermostat for use when introducing fresh food.It should not be used for prolonged periods as it may burn out the compressor although in your case you already have a problem and should seek advice or buy another freezer.If you get a cheap freezer thermometer it should confirm what I am saying.
