DO you mean the fan motor beside the compressor?

If the fan motor is not turning and is stuck try moving the blade. If it starts the motor is probably going out. Remove and replace. If its warm to hot and not turning check for resistance through the motor windings and volts at the wires coming to it. No resistance means the motor is open and it may cool down and reset. Correct voltage means usually the fan motor is going out and has overloaded.. :
If so check the wires to it for proper voltage. If the volts are there the motor is at fault. If no volts look for a broken wire at the compressor terminals.

This should get you headed in the right direction if you need more tell me more as to what you find with ohms and volts check and touch and feel the motor - hot / cold how long on / off it has been how long the compressor runs...

If I understand your problem correectly and this helps you please ratye me as high as yuou can and thanks for using fix ya.

I have whirpool chest freezer defrosted and off for 4 months then turned on 2 red lights going motor is running but not freezing turned up temp to coldest tempurature with amber light on stil the motor...

Since the motor is running, the compressor it is connected to must also be running. The compressor is the thing that provides the cooling under normal circumstances. The only thing I can think of as to why you are not getting cooling is that the refrigerant charge has leaked out of the system. I don't know anything about the red lights you mention.

Compressor wont start up fan in freezer stays on

        • Pull the fridge out from the wall and check to make sure it is plugged in.
        • Unplug the fridge and plug in a spare appliance to see if the outlet is working. Check the circuit breaker to the house see If the outlet is not working to see if there are any fuses that are flipped.Inspect the electrical cord for the refrigerator for damage, such as from a mouse or pet chewing on it.
    • Open the fridge to see if the light turns on. The power to the unit is fine if the light turns on, which means something else is the cause of the starting issue.
    • Turn up the thermostat on the inside of the fridge if it is set to a low setting. Turn it all the way up and listen for the condenser motor to start. Have the unit serviced by a professional if it does not May be internal problem with component

Freezer motor will not turn on

Try cleaning the unit out and any coils you can reach (typically located near the bottom of the unit behind the toe grille). Do you hear the compressor running? The compressor is constantly meant to go on and off frequently to keep unit at a constant temperature. If you do not, the unit could possibly have a coolant leak or an issue with the internal sealed system including a faulty compressor, evaporate fan or main control board. Contact a professional move forward accurately.

The motor seems to be running. Food is not staying completely frozen and I have it turned up to the coldest it will go. Freezer is 5 years old.

Hi, if you have turned the freezer to the coldest and the food is not freezing then you are lacking freon in the compressor.
You need to refill the compressor, besides the freezer is 5 years old.

Take care

High Temp light will not go off even though the freezer seems to be working. Compressor does not stop running

What makes a compressor to run constant is the thermostat. Bang on it to see if it will turn off. turn the setting to 1. if it still wont shut off replace cold control (aka thermostat)
worry about the light later hope this was helpful
