Disconnect the power again for 5 minutes and then put a dinner knife across the two mains plug pins. Then plug it back in. If it doesn't work after that you need an engineer. The main board or other components may have been damaged by a power spike when the power cut.

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

It's a freezer. The temperature should be minus 18.C, yours is showing 0'C. It is telling you the freezer is 18' hotter than it should be.

a number that long looks like a serial number rather than the Model Number. I doubt the temperature alarm can be disconnected. You _may_ be able to remove the sounder, but don't forget, it is provided for your safety and stop all your food spoiling unannounced. If the alarm keeps going of, it is for a reason and needs fixing.

Check with an appliance parts supplier to determine whether the Ranco unit is a specified replacement for the Beaumark. Also, it is possible that the Ranco thermostat is defective, though new.

That is what it is supposed to do. It is called cycling and switches off when the set temperature is reached. It is a commercial freezer, so if the door opened and closed often, that is normal?

Commercial freezers and fridges have an item called a 'Clixon' that cuts power in the case of the compressor overheating. When was the last time the fins on the compressor coils were cleaned?

Could also be a bad door seal letting cold air escape. When you close a freezer door on a unit like that, it should be really hard to open straight afterward due to the suction.

Could be a faulty thermostat. Turn the temperature to the warmest setting and see if it still does it? If it does, you need a new thermostat.

I just retired after 52 years in catering.

Probably the blinking green light is an indication that something is wrong with the compressor or a related component.

That unit is surprisingly clean. It may have had the fan module that you can see in picture, replaced and whomever replaced it, did not put the lug back on or it was not there with the newer unit.

One of these is a power light. It typically remains on while the freezer is in use. No light means either a blown bulb or no power. The other is associated with the thermostat. But it does NOT indicate that freezer temperature is appropriate. Flickering appears to indicate the bulbs are simply failing. The bulbs are neon, I think, and are not cheap. Some might try replacing such with LEDs. I have seen comment that the bulbs are not long lasting. has numerous danby freezer manuals but I do not know your model. Have a look.

Clicking sound is overheat at the compressor. There is a device called a Clixon that is cutting and restarting. Remove covers and clean the condenser grill with a vacuum cleaner and brush.

Page 6. Note the arrow in the drawing I suspect you want to unplug a clogged freezer drain. There are a number of youtube videos and web pages describing methods for you to consider if you google such. As I don't know the model of your freezer, I can't point to a specific remedy. I include one webpage as an example of a procedure. The page below simply describes pan locations.

The company went into liquidation in 2009. There is an Ohio phone number but I am unable to find an active webpage for support. (419) 523-9663 Parts appear available from Sears Direct. Here is access to manuals for a number of models.

I would call the SearPartDirect unit, supply the model and serial number, and request the thermostat. I can't find your specific model via a search on their page but they may have the part anyway used in another model.

Alternatively, you might call the repairclinic number.
