JennyT just trying to help with this. I assume this is a self defrost model. If so then is there an ice build up on the back wall? If so then the unit isn't defrosting. That is why pushing the Fast Freeze button is no longer working. You can get by however. Remove all the food from the freezer, put a vacumn in the freezer and shut the door. Turn on the vacumn, this will pull the warm air thru the freezer and in 30 minutes to an hour it will be defrosted enough to work until you can get someone to replace the 1 of 3 parts that the defrost system uses. The vacumn is what I use to defrost my nonself defrosting freezer. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

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.

Freezer temp keeps dropping despite putting on superfreeze switch. What might the problem be?


I own an Imperial freezer and it has a superfreeze switch. The schematic electrical diagram on my freezer shows that the superfreeze switch when activated, bypasses the temperature control thermostat and keeps operating the compressor motor non stop. Try switching the superfreeze to off after you reach your desired freezer temperature.

Alarm is going off how do I stop it


The best temperature is the midpoint. Typically 3 or 4. The alarm will go off once the temperature goes down to the freezing point.

Temperature control may have failed. Thermostat causes compressor to cycle on and off with temperature in the refrigerator section. If the compressor is not trying to run and is cold to the touch no power is getting to it. compressor is located in back on the bottom.

Additionally the defrost timer may have stopped working while in the defrost position. Locate the timer and rotate the clutch head screw clockwise a small amount and if the compressor starts and runs replace the timer.

The buzzer is loud


Frigidaire # LFFH2067DoW2 # WB52430831 upright freezer (frost free commercial)

Freezer is still freezing. The alarm sounded and I switched the switch off to turn off. The manual says that the temperature isn't at the right temperature and once it reaches the correct freezing temperature the light will come back on or the sound would go off after at least 4 hours. This was since last night about 6:00 and if i switch the switch the alarm is still sounding. The left side of the freezer is a little warmer than usual. Any suggestions
