Pretty basic stuff. power cord could be abaded . check to be sure power is reaching the stat with a meter. if it is then check to see if its reaching compressor with a meter, obviously the box is hot so sta t should be calling if power arrives at stat but doesn't come out stat is bad. if it gets to compressor but no run then the compressor start components or the compressor itself are bad. stat has a power in lead and a power out lead. if you check volts between terminals and show 120 the stat is open and bad. if it is set to max cold and failing to send run signalit has to be the stat. if you have power to stat and stat shows no voltage terminal to terminal then its closed and power is not getting to compressor, trace wiring and check .if power is getting to compressor the checjk start cap and relay . if they are good then compressor is bad , usually to expensive to replace.

After placing my Haier 7 cu. ft. / 198 liter Chest Freezer HCM070LA in a horizontal or tilted position it doesn't want to freeze


If you have run it in a tilted position, the oil has migrated from the compressor to the evaporator. You need a technician to flush the oil back to the compressor. Only run equipment like this on a flat level surface. and always allow to stand a few hours after moving before switching on.

My power wen out and now my kenmore chest freezer high temp alarm is beeping and now it wont cool


I'd turn unit off...unplug it for a few minutes...plug it back in...and turn it back on setting the thermostat again.

Hopefully, you'll hear the compressor kick in and start cooling again.

Hope this helps...

I moved my freezer on its side to clean and it wont get cold any more what do i do/


Fridges and freezers often don't like being started right after they have been moved/tipped, it's best to give them some time (a few hours) in the upright position to allow the refrigerant fluids to settle back where they're supposed to be before restarting.

My chest freezer does not freeze over 80% of the case.it only freezes a small seccion of the upper part of the case.


This one sounds just like a refrigeration problem.
If the freon leaked out then it will definitely do this...
I would recommend to get a new freezer here's why.
if you call someone to put the freon back in it will cost you anywhere from $80 to $150. it will freeze and work good but eventually it will go back to the same problem because the tech did not fix it only put it back in... its just a matter of time then you have the same problem... save your money and move it to a new one...

hope this was helpful

Moving, CA to Florida and want ot load a chest freezer on its end


You could expect internal compressor oil to flow into areas which would restrict refrigerant flow, resulting in no cooling. If you have to ship on end, make sure the compressor end is down !

Chest freezer - hose adaptor?


That would depend on the size of the freezer. If it's a compact 5-7 cubic feet, then its not necessarily needed, but if it is a large freezer I would recommend buying the hose adapter. The basic function for the hose adapter is draining the water after defrosting the freezer.

So if it's a large freezer that will not be moved, then YES by all means, you need the adapter.

Moving a freezer


By front, I presume you DO NOT mean the top. In that case, either should be fine.

Freezer is freezing but the outer wall are extremly hot


This is a normal condition.  The condensor coils are in the cabinet and their job is to remove heat which is why it is hot.  You will want to make sure the freezer isn't in a tight spot where air from the room can't flow across it.  Without good air flow it will become too hot and not cool properly and lead to the compressor failing too soon.
