My customer has this chest freezer, showing Demo but does not run. I can set the tempature, but nothing is running. How can I change it back to run again?

Press and hold the set and up arrow buttons together for 10 seconds to take it out of the demo mode.

Thank you very much for this hint. I could not find this info or anything about the demo mode. I will go back there to "fix"  it.

You're very welcome. I worked for Sears for quite a few years. Glad I could help.

The freezer works well now. I don't understand why the users manual does not mention the demonstration mode.
