You only require fast freeze if you are using the freezer for the first time, after a defrost, or if you add a large quantity of fresh food to an already running freezer. Most freezers require about eight hours at fast freeze. As to the temperature setting I would suggest you purchase a purpose built freezer thermometer (very cheap) and place that on top of the food. With the thermostat control set mid way (about 3 or 4) check the thermometer occasionally see what the temperature reads. It should be around -18C, if it's lower then set the thermostat lower at 2-3, if its higher set the thermostat higher at 4-5. Repeat this until the freezer temperature is correct.

Why has my freezer stoped freezing. it is cold inside and the red warning light is on


The defrost heat element has failed or the fan unit has failed, either way it is easly diognosed and not too costly if you pick the right repairer.
If you turn the unit off for 2 days and defrost it total, then turn it back on, should work fine for 4-5 days then return to problem again, confirming my report, you can then tell repairer you are not stupid and hence, not get ripped off.....Russ

The temperature keeps on rising. everything inside is melting. does not freeze anything. fan and light is working.


Turn it off, defrost it for a couple of days """""with the door open""""", restart it with door closed and see if it starts freezing again after about 2-3 hours, if so, then the draw unit works, that indicates the defrost cycle needs to be reset or one of the defrost elements has failed causing the rest no to do anything.

After defrosting the freezer it will not cool


Don't panic about the hot sides of the freezer. It is quite common on all the freezer (make/model).

After defrosting, your removing the full temerature out of the system. It will take atleast 30 ~ 60 mins to come back to set temperature. This again depends on the load inside.

Green light does not come on for settings 0 to 4


the ice cream is the clue,if it goes hard then the temp is too low (ice cream best kept at -18C)
either the defrost is not working or interior temp sensor duff.

Both Lights flashing and fridge not getting cold


I turned the fridge and freezer off using the circular dials, I then turned the unit off at the mains. Left it for a few minutes and then turned the power back on. I then turned the circular dials to "max" and then depressed the super cool and super freeze buttons to turn this facility on. This time they came on normally (not flashing) and no alarm sounded. The fridge and freezer then started to get cold. Once the unit had been running for several hours I then turned the dials to the 3/4 mark and depressed the super cool and super freeze buttons again to turn them off. Over night the fridge and the freezer appear to be working properly so I hope that my problem is solved. Maybe the unit just needed to "settle" before being switched on?

Need correct setting for 30 yr old upright Kenmore freezer


Your best bet is to start in the middle. Guesstimate and let it run. The test is to see if water freezes solid in 6-8 hours. If not, you can turn about 1/4 turn or less. Then you can try hamburger meat which a lower freezing temp and see if it gets solid. Your perishable items should be put somewhere else until you are ready. At least the water frozen will keep the meat safe from bacteria growth or spoilage. Let me know how you do.
