Re: stopped running

I know this one only from my personal experience. These units have a bad circuit board that will sometimes not reset after a power outage. Short-term fix = unplug from wall, count to ten and plug it back in again, if the bad board is the problem, the unit should start right up, now. Long-term fix = replace bad circuit board.

Freezer stopped after power outage

If the sides are hot, look at the defrost timer. Sounds like it has stopped running with the defrost elements on. The compressor has a safety switch on it that opens either if the compressor gets too hot or if it pulls too much current when starting. If your power flickered a lot before coming back on, that triggered the safety switch. Now that it's running normally, I wouldn't worry. The defrost timer is your problem now.

Sub Zero 700 suddenly stops after 12 years. Compresser is burning hot.

The compressor will normally be 100 to 110 degrees. I would suspect the thermostat or mouse damage in the freezer area. Also, if you keep it overstocked, to the point of poor air circulation, you could just have ice blockage. Put the frozen food in a styrofoam cooler or a good heavy corrugated box and give the unit a good full defrosting.

Freezer motor running nonstop

Behind the back panel you will find the freezer fan motor. unplug and take everything out. take the back panel off and find the fan. stick something in the blade like a bannana or whatever (no rags or paper towels though) just something to jam the blade (its plastic so dont break it) replug. remove whatever you put to jam the blade and if you hear the sound then you know for sure it is the fan. got to replace fan if you want the noise to stop
if it is not the fan let me know
hope this helped

Freezer stopped working

A no power to the compressor is a good sign as far as being repairable is concerned. Locate the temperature control. Unplug the freezer and jumper the two main wires that connect to the control. Plug it in and if the unit runs replace the thermostat.

Freezer/Refrigerator tempurature swinging wildly

The compressor is overheating and not starting. Could be just the start relay. If this happens again try unplugging it for about an hour then it should work for a while. Heat between doors is normal this is an electric heater designed to keep the doors from sweating. You just noticed it because the refrigerator wasn't cold.

I would think that the reason the red power wire melted, was because of high amperage, not getting wet. After you replaced it the condenser fan came on, but did the compressor? It may have went out before and that's what caused the bad wire. If you have a volt/ohm meter I can help you check it out.

Freezer problem

Not sure of what cut out refers to. If you mean the power supply is tripped out after twenty secs hen I would say there is a fair chance of the compressor being down to earth (ie broken). If you mean that the compressor tries to run and then stops after twenty secs then there is a fair chance the compressor is stalled (ie broken). There is also a chance that the relay (starting device) may be at fault failing to start the compressor. If it is the relay then the cost may be around £70 if its the compressor then you are lookin at a couple of hundred pounds approx. The buzzing sound does sound like the compressor trying to run but stalled and unfortunately compressors have no real average anymore and are prone to fail whenever they choose to. Sorry to sound negative and hope this helps.
