Most freezers now will cycle the power light on and off when the unit is operating. When it turns off, the unit has reached temperature.

I have a Skandiluxe CF 136 chest freezer & the orange (fast freeze) light is on all the time.


The compressor won't burn out just because it's running all the time. The plastic fascia pops out easily from behind(take the little panel off on the side) Set the thermostat to the middle of its range and switch the fast freeze off.

Re lights lit on freezer


Red light lit on freezer means that is not reaches operating temperature.

Most often the old freezer has three indicator lights.
- Green light : that it is brought to a power source and turned on - Red light : means that the temperature is above -18 degrees
- orange light : pressing the so-called SUPER-switch which means that the compressor is running continuously. The SUPER-button switch on a few hours before you begin deep-freeze foods. Freezing time depending on foods quantity (kg). With old freezer must be careful to turn off the switch S (orange light) when the red light goes out or when foods are frozen, otherwise after a few days may burn out the compressor. You should be following the instructions from user manual.
In new freezer managed by the electronics, this function has a predetermined maximum duration, in order to protect the compressor, and can have different marketing names like "shopping".....

Hi I lost my manual to my westpoint tropical chest freezer, and wanted to find out how the fast freezer switch works. Does it mean when i switch it off the freezer goes off? or is it just a switch to help...


Hi
Normally a fast freeze button is just that, it turns the compressor on permanently to freeze things down quickly.
I suspect that your run light is linked to the thermostat, and does not indicate that the freezer is turned off but that the temperature of the freezer is above the temperature set on the thermostat and the compressor is running to bring the temperature down. Once the temperature is at or below the thermostat temperature then the compressor will stop and the red light probably goes out, indicating the the freezer is at the right temperature.
It won't go out with the fast freeze on because to freeze food quickly the thermostat is by-passed and the compressor runs continuously.
Hope this helps.

The light is on but the freezer is not cooling

You did not specify which lights are on?

  • The green pilot light will illuminate to show that the appliance is switched on.
  • The red alarm light will also illuminate until the freezer
    reaches the correct temperature.
  • If you press the SUPER button than you start fast freeze function and yellow light will illuminate.
I assume that the freezer is on and the green light is illuminated. This means that the freezer is on and energized.
Also, if freezer does not cooling, means that did not achieve the set temperature should be illuminated the red light (alarm).

Set the thermostat for example in position 4th and after that compressor should be start.
If compressor running but not cooling, defective is the system which circulates gas.
If compressor does not start, then is faulty thermostat, compressor or the wiring.

Freezer wont switch off


Needs new thermostat. If trying to switch off and compressor still running, contacts stuck together. Many freezers run like this for years!

Red light staying on and freezer not freezing


Hello,

A freezer is great for storing additional food that may not fit in your fridge freezer. If your freezer stops working, it's important to be able to troubleshoot it quickly so that food waste is kept to a minimum. Keep the following tips in mind if your freezer stops working.

Inspect the Relay
The relay is a component that helps power the compressor. It is housed in a plastic box with the motor terminals and the overload protector and is connected to the Compressor; the relay is the largest component in the box. Closely inspect the relay and make sure it is not burned out. The relay can also be tested using a multimeter. If you see any signs that the relay has shorted out, you'll will need to replace it. If the relay makes a rattling sound when shaken, this is also a sign that it has shorted out.
Examine the Compressor
The compressor is essential to the performance of your chest freezer. It is the motor that powers the entire cooling system and if your freezer has ceased to work, you need to check it. This unit is located at the back of the freezer and sits in plastic housing; it can be identified by its football shape.
You can tell that the compressor is broken if your relay is fine or if you hear a light hum followed by a clicking sound and silence. If your freezer is relatively new, it might still be under warranty and you could get a replacement compressor for free. If not, your compressor will need to be replaced by a professional.
Investigate the Thermostat
The fact that your chest freezer is not working could be down to the thermostat. This is the unit that regulates the temperature inside the freezer. To test your thermostat, remove the access panel on the side of the freezer. Next, use a screwdriver to remove the actual thermostat from the inside wall but do not disconnect the tube that runs from the unit into the freezer.
Set the range scale on Rx1 on your multimeter to test for continuity. If your multi-tester reads continuity, your freezer problem lies in another spot. If your multi-tester does not read continuity, it means your thermostat is not working and you will need to replace it. Remove the tube from the old thermostat and attach it to the new one. Screw the new unit into place on the freezer wall and make sure the tube is not coiled or kinked as this will prevent the new thermostat from working properly.


Hope this helps......

Lost manual want to find out what green light is for and when does it come on running freezer on boost at this time


The green light generally indicates that the compressor is running. If running on boost, it may be on continuously.
