SOURCE: whirlpool a class freezer
Red Light : Alarm high temperature.
Amber Light : Fast freeze function (ie ignores thermostat and keeps unit freezing all the time).
Green light: mains power.
If you have lost temperature on a freezer it is usually a major fault either the compressor has failed or you have lost charge (possibly the start relay). If you are able to get to the rear of the unit and check the compressor, if it is hot then it is more likely a major fault. A good fridge guy can normally tell the problem within a short time of inspecting the unit. Sorry to not sound hopeful. Good luck.

SOURCE: I have a Beko -
i assume this is a frost-free type.
remove the back panel inside the freezer and check if the pipework is frozen up. if so, melt the ice off with a hairdryer and get back to me for further details

Thats a Norcold compact fridge. The most likley problem would be the thermister. Need to do an ohms reading. From inside of the fridge remone the thermister from the fins and unplug the wires. With a VOM set it on Ohms, touch the wires with the probes/ does not matter which probe to wire/ hold the bulb end of the thermister between your fingers, your reading should stat at about 7000 Ohms. Stick the bulb end of the thermister in a glass of ice water, reading should start climbing and go to about 22000 Ohms. If this happens the thermister is good and you need to look elsewhere. If it does not test out you need to replace the thermister. The thermister is a thermostat that controls the heat source that makes the fridge cool. If the thermister reads good you may want to get the circuit board tested.
Hope this helps
Thank you for using Fixya

un plug the heating element from the circuit board and ohm it out. also check fuse on board. but sounds like the heating element has gone out. if when you ohm it its on 0 its bad
