Orange light means it cannot cool properly. I would get it checked by a competent refrigeration engineer.

Upright whirlpool freezer is not freezing. fan motor comes on, light comes on but is not getting cold. how can I trouble shoot the problem?


Could be the cold control thermostat that is the problem. You didn't provide your model number so couldn't get specific here. I did find another forum thread that might give you more clues: http://www.applianceblog.com/mainforums/threads/36458-Whirlpool-freezer-cold-but-not-freezing

Orange light is on instead of green light on freezer what does this mean


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 S-switch which means that the compressor is running continuously. The S-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".....

I have a Rank Arena BF260 freezer I got from my dad. There is a switch on the front, if it is to the left, there is no icon on it, if it's to the right it has a snowflake icon show. Dad didn't even realise...


It is the fast freeze switch. It keeps the freezer full on even if it gets down to its operating temperature. You will see the yellow or orange light come on. You do this if you want to add some new item in the upper fast freeze compartment. Make sure you turn it off after about 2 hours.
