A hum followed by a click sound is an indication of a failure at the compressor. Possibly the compressor motor has gone into a locked rotor condition. A locked rotor condition can be checked using an ammeter. The name plate on the compressor will have a rating after LRA. If the ammeter reading is equal to the LRA rating the compressor is done. If it is a reading of about 80% of the LRA (locked rotor amperage) it is possible that a relay or capacitor has failed which is replaceable.

Why will it not come on?


The rust shouldn't make any difference.

When you plug it in, does the interior light turn on? If not, suspect the wall outlet - test it for power by plugging in something else. If the interior light turns on, listen very closely to the freezer. It should hum. If it doesn't, toy with the freezer control inside - it may just be turned off. Turn it to about midpoint and listen very closely to it again. If still no hum, wait a short while, then feel carefully on the outside of the cabinet - it may be running through a defrost cycle. The outside of the cabinet may get warm while that's happening, especially around the door gaskets. Wait a while (half an hour, an hour, for the defrost cycle to finish - the freezer should run then.

If it never hums, then the compressor isn't running, so adding freon won't make any difference. Instead, suspect the defrost timer - that's a little electronic circuit board inside.

If it HUMS but never gets COLD, then you potentially have a freon leakage problem. It's difficult at best, though, to refill a refrigerator or freezer - they don't usually have refill taps.

Oh, yes. If the internal light never comes on but you've proven that the wall outlet has power, it's entirely possible that the plug is bad and needs to be redone.

Hums seconds only does not freeze


If it hums then quits and hums and quits and just keeps doing this then either the compressor start relay is burned out or the compressor is seized. Unless you are capable of diagnosing this you should have a tech check it out. If it's just a relay they are relatively cheap, but if it's the compressor it could cost more than the freezer is worth.

The freezer defrosted and now it won't get to the right temp. again. it's not even making the humming noise (although the display is working. and I tried unplugging it already)


The humming noise is a fan the circulates the freezer air. When it defrosts it shuts down the cooling cycle and turns on some heating wires. They quickly melt the accumulated ice. Then it all turns back on. Most problems take place during this time because of the rapid temperature change and the dripping water. I would 1st check out the fan. Not sure where yours is but you should be able to remove a cover and be able to see it and the defrost heater. Be careful not to get shocked, but check to see if fan is moving. Small possibility that a connect got wet and corroded or more likely the fan just didn't come back on. Needs to be replace.

Both lights are on on the outside of my freezer. Things are unthawing. I can't find my owners manual.


Hi,
The one light should be for power the other for alarm meaning the temperature has risen, which you already know.

In order to help you better I need to ask some questions about the freezer.

First off, is this an automatic defrost unit or manual defrost?
Does it have a fan inside the freezer? If so is it running
Do you see a frost build up on the back wall of the freezer closer to the bottom?
Do you hear the compressor running (the black pump behind the freezer on the bottom)? It will have a slight hum when running.
Is there frost build up anywhere else like the walls inside?

Our kenmore elite side by side refrigerator is making a noticeable humming noise and the freezer is not as cold as it should be.


Check to see if there is ice built up on the back wall of the freezer.
If yes, you have defrost parts failure.
If no, check the compressor fan motor. Is it running?
