The three components that can cause this problem are:

1. Thermo couple
2. Heater element and
3. heating timer.

You can try bypassing the thermocouple that is wrapped around the end of the cooling coils. The system will work but will be heating and cooling according to the time built in control timer (usually 8 h cooling and 30 min heating). This way you can find out if your heater element is still working. If yes, them simply change the thermocouple.

Hi there,

sounds like a thermistor problem. since you did not provide a model #, i am not sure how many thermistors and thermostats there are but most freezers have at least 1. i would recommend having it replaced.

Freezer not getting cold. Replaced start relay. Didnt help. Compressor makes buzzing noise.. Like working but not at full potential. Is it possible start capacitor is faulty??


If there is, the wire is fine. See if the compressor motor is running. The compressor is at the back of the freezer near the bottom. ... If it is running, but your freezer is still not cooling at all, there may be a problem with the condenser or evaporator coils , add additional preon gas if necessary

I have deep freezer chest that does not freeze but when you plug it in you can hear it click on but will not get cold at all has been unplugged for a few years but stored in a dry building


If it doesn't get cold at all, then your compressor is not running. Which could be the start relay or start capacitor or even the compressor. The relay and capacitor are not that expensive and pretty easy to replace, but if it is the compressor then you might not want to put that much money into an older unit.

How cold should my freezer be?


zero deg F. or -18deg C. for household Fridge freezer.

Deep freeze, like a chest freezer, - 10 deg. F. -23 deg. C.


Household freezer storage is good for approx 3 - 5 months depending on product.
Deep freeze storage is good for 2-3 years, again depending on product.

I don't need deep freezer. I want to disconnect it and deinstall deep freezer from Refrigerator. Pls. guide. I suppose this will reduce my electricity bill. Am I correct ?


With most units you can't do that. The fridge gets it's cold air from the freezer side. The air is blown through a vent at the top. Samsung is one kind that has a separate unit for fridge and freezer and could possible be cut off separately but most can not.

Frezzer works refig not getting cold


sounds like it is a fan issue - there is a fan the blows the cold air from the freezer section in to the refrig section, stick ur head in the refrig section and see if you hear a fan running - you probably wont - you will actually probably start to notice that the freezer section is getting really really cold, like to the point of a deep freeze... the good news is that as long as the freezer section is cold your compressor is still working, so this will not be all that spendy to fix...

Kenmore 23.1 cf Chest Freezer not cooling below 14F


Make sure everything is working, I.E. compressor, fans. Now I need to know if the freezer shuts off at 14 degrees, or does it continue to run without making temp. If it shuts off, then the first place to look is the thermostat. It may be out of calibration. If it continues to run, then the solution may be as simple as cleaning the condenser coil. or the defrost has malfunctioned somehow. Defrost probleams will cause excess ice on the inside coil. You may need to remove the panels to see how much ice is on it. It sounds like the compressor is good, as it is pretty cold. Just not cold enough. A deep freeze should be at least 0.
