My freezer has a different code number;ZFT710FW.I put quite a lot of food into the freezer yesterday and the alarm now keeps sounding,I have put the temperature up but the red light is still flashing...


Red Alarm Indicator Light
Under normal operating conditions, the internal temperature of the freezer will ensure the long-term conservation of the stored food. When such temperature rises above a certain level (-12 °C), the appliance will trigger an acoustic and light alarm. The light alarm is a blink red light (Red Alarm Indicator Light), while the acoustic alarm is an intermittent sound.
You can stop the acoustic alarm by pressing the Acoustic Signal Stop Switch once.

When switching on the freezer for the first time, the Red Alarm Indicator Light will blink until the internal temperature has reached a level required for the safe conservation of frozen food.

Fast Freeze function
If more than 3-4 kg of food is to be frozen:
1. Press the Fast Freeze Switch for 2-3 seconds to activate the fast-freeze function 6-24 hours before placing the fresh food in the freezer, the Yellow Fast Freeze Indicator Light will illuminate. The compressor will now run continuously, to ensure that the fresh food is frozen as quickly as possible.
2. It is possible to deactivate the function at any time by pressing the Fast Freeze Switch for 2-3 seconds.
3. Place the foods in the freezing compartments (indicated with graphics).
4. Once the food is completely frozen (it may take up to 24 hours) you can manually switch off the fastfreeze function by pressing the Fast Freeze Switch for 2- 3 seconds and the Yellow Fast Freeze Indicator light will also go out.
5. Move frozen food from the freezing compartments into the other compartments (storing compartments) to make room for another freezing.

If the Fast Freeze Switch is accidentally left on, the fast-freeze function will be automatically switched off 48 hours later. The Yellow Fast Freeze Indicator light will also go out.

I believe that you all understand. If you intend to freeze larger amount of food then certainly a few hours before some shopping switch on the fast freeze function.

The freezer freezes two hard , there are 2 switches on it are they both suppose to be on?? one is orange and one is white.


Well hello...on your freezer...the orange switch is for "fast freeze" and should not be on constantly...only when you want to freeze items really fast.If you have it on...turn it off.Also do you have the temp control set at maximum...If so...try to reduce the seting by one number.If not...leave it as is.Give the freezer about 24 hours to re stablize.That should do it...also...you will notice a reduction in your electric bill as the fast freeze switch causes the unit to draw a greater amount of electricity..MAKE SURE the orange switch is off...I hope this was helpful....PEACE...

Bottom freezer has high temperature and is defrosting. temperature alert light is on. Tried fast freeze button and turning up the temp gages but nothing seems to be working.


as for high tempreture do u mean it is above the 0 degree normal that its supposed to be set to your freezer goes into a defrost cycel once every 6-8 hours.if your tempreture is rising on the other hand there are a couple things for you to check make sure the fan inside the freezer compartment is running.the following things you will need a meter for to measure the resistance while the power is off check the t-stat,heater to make sure there is continuity if you have continuity in both of these then you would need to check the defrost timer If you are unable to do these tests i strongly suggest you call a technician

Freezer working but not colder enough to freeze.


It will usually take 24 hours for the fridge/freezer to adjust fully to the temperature settings.

It is also possible that the defrost timer cycle was going into or just coming out of the defrost cycle, thus it could have delayed the start of the cooling cycle, so give it a little time to determine if the freezer is working.

If, not freezing after 24 hours, let us know and we'll go from there.

It takes longer for an empty freezer to get and hold temperatures, so it is always a good idea to have the freezer loaded with bread (thirft store bargains are cheap) or jugs of 3/4 full water (water takes longer to freeze than bread thou).

Hope you find this very helpful and best regards!

WHIRLPOOL UNDER WORKTOP FREEZER APPROX 11 YEARS OLD BEEPING


the temperature control is bad. when you push the fast freeze it bypasses the thermostat for 12-24 hours depending on which model you have. I am not able to find any parts information with the model number provided but you should be able to find a temperature control at any local appliance parts house or online thru any reputable supplier.
