Customer Question

I have a de Dietrich 3 drawer upright freezer which is quite old but working perfectly and always has done. However, orange and red lights are now illuminated and I do not know what this means. Please can you advise. I do not know the model number as this is not shown on the front of the freezer. Thank you.

Hello, can you confirm of the food inside are still frozen? The indicator lights are warning lights that the unit is above the operating temperature. Hopefully, it is just the indicator that has a problem and not the unit itself.


Please ignore the phone service offer..…It is not me who initiate it but the site…but if you really want a phone call…please let me know. I only do phone call for USA customers but viber, FB messenger, or FaceTime for customers outside of USA. Tnx.
