I came home and saw water on the floor. Freezer stopped cooling unknown hours.
The light inside is on.
There is a switch. Middle of the switch is an unknown setting.
When the switch is pressed to either side, an alarm like beep happens.
It's some sort of safety switch etc.
Whirpool model EVL201NXRQ00
This freezer has always made a noise every 12 hours for 30 minutes or more. I've asked people and they always say it is just the refrigeration cycle.
I checked the breaker box and all breakers are fine and I plugged the freezer into another good outlet and it does not seem to be on, though the light inside is on.
I've turned it off, emptied it, unpluged it and will turn it on in 24 hours and hope there is a "reset" event and it starts.
The cartons on milk at the bottom appear to be fully frozen. The foods in the top half were thawed.
Age of the unit is 6 years.
I have posted a photo of the swtich.
i'm not clearly understanding it.
The "legend" shows:
On the switch in the photo, the right side is the check mark.
In the middle is:
- l o
Can you clarify that?
The switch has 3 settings. Toggle like switch. Left, right, or middle.
