SOURCE: GOT A RED LIGHT ON

Hi

The red light just means that it is more than 8 deg f above its setpoint. If you turned it on a day ago then left it empty before refilling it with frozen food then the light should have gone out.

The thermostat should be set for 0 deg f or between 3 and 4 on the dial. If it is set too low then it may not reach temperature. Also check that it is not in too warm an area and that it is at least 2 inches clear of anything else all the way round.

Some chest freezers have a fan cooled condenser near the compressor, please check this to make sure the fan is working and that the condenser is not covered with dust, if it is clean with a soft brush and vacuum cleaner.

Regards

Gordon

Hi,
I'm Leo
First I would check the fan in the freezer. Listen to see if it is running
It moves air to the ref from the freezer
Then check to see if freezer control is turned WARMER, which makes the Ref. colder
Also this might be a common Defrost problem, Ice
is not being melted by the defrost system.The fan can't blow through the coils into the fridge.
Take out back panel of freezer to check for ice buildup. The coils should be clean.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician but you could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info
Also check fan undernearh Ref in the rear
Clean condenser coils underneath

GE chest type freezer buzzer going off


If you have a fast freeze button try that and see if the alarm goes off within a few hours. It bypasses the thermostat switch. Check condenser clean etc but be prepared for compressor failure

Electricity went out & audible alarm is going off. Would like to know if there is a reset button for this or will it reset itself when temp goes back to normal.


Will stop on it's own when it get cold again, but most generally have a manual alarm shut off (on back, near hinge on older models).

Freezer


the alarm light is conected threw to the thermostat and is disighned to worn you if the freezer has wormed up obove freezing tepteratures. it is on and the freezer is still working ok then there is a fault in the control. Please check the temperature using ice creem as you gage if the freezer holds icecream to a hard consistancy then the freezer is working good . ice cream hardens at around -10 f anything wormer and its soft . you could have the control replased but the standard replacement controls dont have the temp alarm options. hope this helped. p/s if you are living in a worm climate enshure the freezer has adiquit air cerculation oround the cabinet.

Kenmore 23.1 cf Chest Freezer not cooling below 14F


Make sure everything is working, I.E. compressor, fans. Now I need to know if the freezer shuts off at 14 degrees, or does it continue to run without making temp. If it shuts off, then the first place to look is the thermostat. It may be out of calibration. If it continues to run, then the solution may be as simple as cleaning the condenser coil. or the defrost has malfunctioned somehow. Defrost probleams will cause excess ice on the inside coil. You may need to remove the panels to see how much ice is on it. It sounds like the compressor is good, as it is pretty cold. Just not cold enough. A deep freeze should be at least 0.
