Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX you for choosing our service.
Temp Alarm (audible only or audible with warning light)
This feature is designed to provide a warning of possible malfunction. If the
temperature of the food rises to a level unsafe for long-term storage, the buzzer will
sound. The red light will also glow on models so equipped. The Temp Alarm feature
operates on household electricity. If power fails, the alarm will not perform. An ON/
OFF switch allows you to deactivate the Temp Alarm when not wanted. The freezer
is shipped with Temp Alarm in the OFF position. After freezer has run approximately
4 hours, the red light, if equipped, will go off. Then you may activate the Temp Alarm
without the alarm sounding.
so if the unit is not below freezing the alarm/ light will come on !

im wondering if there might be a defrost timer problem that caused it to lose cool, but it seemed to be working when i was there.i left the temp alarm off. will it run ok without it on

Oh yes it will run with out .
and of course we will not be able to tell if the defrost is automatically defrosting or not till it cools down.
So only time will tell , they might have even left the door ajar !
