Question about Kenmore 13.7 cu. ft. / 388 liter Upright Freezer 23424
I have an older upright Kenmore freezer, 13 cubic feet. It's a manual defrost, no light, no bells or whistles. One day last week it shut off and started to defrost. I unplugged it for a few hours and when I pluuged it back in it started working fine. It worked fine all weekend then last night it shut off and won't start. It clicks like its trying to start then a few seconds later it clicks like it turning off. A couple of minutes later it trys to go through the cycle again. Then after a few minutes, it'll click and the compressor will come on work fine, freezes a cup of water. Then, when it switches off it won't start until it clicks on and off a few times. What part should I replace...first?? Or, do I buy a new one??
Try a new start relay and overload kit specifically for the make and model freezer you are working on. if compressor can be seen ,the numbers on it can be used to get correct oem start cap, relay ,and overload. if your unit is having starting problems that will usually fix it. if however, the stat is failing to bring it on a new stat is called for. but it sounds like it is having starting problems since you said it was off a long while then still struggled on the overload to start then finally did. if the new start components don't work then new freezer time. compressor replacement is to expensive anymore. good luck
