Temperature Alarm

The temperature alarm is located below the temperature control and sounds an audible buzzing alarm if the freezer temperature reaches 10°F (-12°C) or more above the normal for your selected temperature setting. The alarm is controlled by a 3-position switch. 

How do you change the alarm settings?

To change the temperature alarm settings:

  • Press the switch to the right to Test the Alarm 
  • Press the switch to the left to turn the alarm feature "On"
  • Move to the switch to the Center to turn the alarm "Off".

Over Temperature Alert

The Over Temperature Alert lets you know if the freezer temperature has risen to 19°F (-7°C) or higher. This alert feature will sound a continuous alert tone and repeatedly flash a red light on the control panel.

How to turn the alarm off

  • The tone can be turned off by pressing the TEMP SETTING button on the control panel once.
  • As you press the TEMP SETTING button, the red light will then also change from flashing to continuously illuminated.
  • The red light will remain illuminated until the freezer temperature falls below 19°F (-7°C).

NOTE: If the red light on the control panel is repeatedly flashing, but the alert tone is not sounding, this means that an over temperature condition has occurred but the freezer temperature has since returned to below 19°F (-7°C). To turn off the red light indicator for this condition, press the TEMP SETTING button on the control panel once.

Door Ajar Alarm

The Door Ajar alarm lets you know when the freezer door has been open for 5 minutes or longer and the cooling is turned on. This alarm feature will sound an alert tone that will repeat every 2 minutes. Close the door to turn off the tone. The feature is reset and will reactivate when the door is again left open for 5 minutes.

NOTE: To mute the alert tone while keeping the door open, such as while cleaning the inside of the freezer, press TEMP SETTING button on the control panel. The alert tone will be temporarily turned off.
