Freezer contents thawed, freezer cuts on but only runs a few seconds and cuts back off


Compressors do not usually shut down. Either there is a power interruption to the motor caused by the power switch or thermostat or the motor has developed an internal short whereby it uses excessive power causing it to overdraw/overheat and have the clixon circuit shut it down.

Kenmore upright freezer


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

I am going to assume your compressor and condenser fan is running. Your condenser fan is in the lower back of your freezer.

You will need to remove the back cover in your freezer. There are 6 screws holding it on.

Check the following (Cover Removed):

1.) Frozen Drain - Your freezer goes into a defrost mode every 8-10 hours, where your freezer shuts down except for the lights, and your defrost heater turns on for about 20-30 minutes to defrost your cooling coil. If you have a frozen drain, the condensate builds up behind the back wall and icing the cooling coil, restricting air flow. You must defrost the coil.

2.) Freezer Fan Motor Failure - Having removed the back wall observe if the freezer fan motor is running. If not replace.

3.) Refrigerant Restriction or Leak - If you observe a large build-up of ice in the upper right hand corner, then you have a restriction or leak. The cost of repair would be about $400.00

4.) Bad Thermostat - In the upper right hand corner of you cooling coil, attached is your thermostat. They can explode, where the back of the thermostat will raise up.

You can also check it with a multi-meter, set to the lowest Ohms (Omega Symbol). You need to cut the wires, leaving enough wire length to rewire back in. Put the thermostat in a glass of ice water for 10 minutes. After, it should Ohm out around 16. It is reads '0' or infinity it is bad. Below 15 or 16 it is bad

My fridge freezer is running non stop


It is probably because it's not getting cold enough to cut off. If you slowly turn the thermostat to warmer it should cut off when it gets to that temp.If it doesn't cut off then it is a thermostat problem. When you have heavy ice buildup on the evaporator coils inside the freezer behind the back panel that will hamper the cooling. This is caused by a defrost system failure.

My beko fridge freezer keeps turning itself off and when i pulled the fridge freezer out there is what looks like a fat gas bottle at the bottom and that was very hot i think the model is cg964d


These appliance work with a thermostat that is when ever they reach a certain temperature they do cut off power automatically..If you find that ice is melting then you need to start worry.By the way the fat gas bottle is an air compressor which helps to circulate the gas around the system...It's like the heart of the fridge.

My freezer's defrost systems runs constantly


i dont think so i would look at the compressor kicking out on thermal overload or a faulty thermostat thermostats have two settings cut in cut out your cut in could be bad and not turning the compressor on till the temp reaches melting temps now if your hearing a click buzz then you need to look at the compressor and make sure the compressor fan is running but its not a defrost promblem
