I need to know what the green red and orange indicators are

Customer Question

I need to know what the green red and orange indicators are on our Frigidaire 1037 chest freezer. Thank you.
JA: How old is your Frigidaire freezer?
Customer: It is a Type cf280 probably 20+ years of age.
JA: How long has this been going on with your Frigidaire freezer? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Nothing . The orange light is on continuously but may have been switched unintentionally.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: We believe the orange switch may be fast freeze but we are not sure. Also we don’t appear to have the original manual.

The green light is the power light.

The red light is the warning / high temeperture light.

And the orange light is indeed the fast freeze light.

If the orange light is on all the time just turn the switch off next to it and it will turn the fast freeze off as you dont need this on all the time.

Hope this helps. If you need anymore info just get back to me.
