Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries. Could I have the Manufacturer and model number please
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Electrolux, chest freezer,9 cubic feet, about 10 years old. Sorry I do not have manual and cannot find the model number
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.
Model number should be on the back
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
in all the years we have had the freezer, it has never done this before
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.
The beeping is just to tell you that the temperature is outside of the band of temperature that you have set, ie it may be at -12C when it should be at -18C. It can be a shortage of refrigerant, a failing motor or the lid has been left open or not fully shut. However I need the model number from the label on the back to be sure of the specifications.

Thank you.I have looked all round the freezer and cannot see the model number. I did however pull the plug from the socket for a minute and the freezer continued to bleep!!
Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 1 year ago.
That is normal, it takes a short while for the capacitors on the board to discharge.

In the end I asked advice of a local expert, who assured me that under no circumstances would a deep freeze bleep.It had to be coming from elsewhere.As it turned out, I found a cold alarm had dropped down, and had landed underneath the freezer and had switched itself on in the process,hence the bleeping noise. I'll deal locally in future
