Depends on the HP rating of the compressor, also the voltage. Generally I find that even if a hard start works you are just buying a bit of time till the compressor has to be replaced anyway.

Compressor will not come on


Check that the freezer has power. After that make sure the thermostat is turned down low. If it still isn't starting, listen for any clicks like its trying to start. If no clicks, replace the start capacitor or thermostat. If there's clicks like its trying to start, try a hard start kit for your freezer, or you might just need a new compressor

L.comTrue model GDM-23 starts and stops(very short cycles10 sec. or so


. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. The relay is a small usually black cube shaped electrical part plugged into the compressor or wired to it nearby. It may appear burnt or rattle when shaken if it's bad. The two connections should show continuity with an amp meter. If it's good then it's most likely the compressor causing the problem.

I have a Turbo Air TGF-49F freezer and it is not cooling. The compressor unit seems to work but when I turn the unit on all I hear is the compressor running continuously but nothing gets cold.


Difficult for you to check this I'm afraid, if the fan on the cooling unit is working unless you have an experienced 'ear' you will not hear the compressor running or worse still occasionally clicking.
Possible faults are
1. Compressor not running (the fan will run even if the compressor does not) electrical fault
2. Compressor seized (consult your service guy) also true for the rest of these
3. Compressor not pumping
4. Refrigerant leak

Not much hope for a cheap repair

My true freezer model T-35F 3/4 HP start run


overamp condition. Sounds like the first place to look would be in the start components.
http://www.truemfg.com/pdf/InstallManuals/T-SERIES/t_series_english.pdf
check out this web site. It has your manual with trouble shooting guide. It also says to check start components. Don't get circuit breaker confused with unit overload. Overload is on the compressor.
Hope this gets ya going.

Condensing unit terns off but won't come back on kicks off breaker


If it runs, turns off, then tries to restart and kicks breaker, look for bad start components. Check start relay, start capacitor. It may be trying to restart too quickly and the compressor over amps and breaker trips. The system needs to have at least 3 minutes of off time before trying to restart. This allows the pressures in the system to balance enough so the compressor can overcome the high side pressure and start. I've seen where people turn the control up and down very quickly causing the compressor to over amp and trip breakers and over loads.
Hope this gets it for you.
