If it is the thermostat that is defective the two wires that go to the thermostat for compressor operation can be connected together which would power up the compressor. Unplug the unit before attempting to connect the two wires. after connection is made plug it back in and if the compressor operates and the freezer comes down in temperature you definitely have a bad thermostat.

Chest freezer suddenly stops working then will start again later


This is normal if your freezer is in good working condition. If your compressor runs constantly then there is a problem. Once the unit reaches the set temperature the compressor shuts down. The set temperature should be between -2 & +2 degree F. The set temperature also depends on how full the freezer is. There will be a time when the freezer like refrigerators will shut down. This is relative to the term, "Frost Free". The unit will shut down for about 10 minutes. This occurs ever 8-10 hours. The heater turns on to defrost your freezer coil. It sounds like you are in good shape.

My refrigerator is warm but the light inside turns on and i have it set to cold, it just stopped working today


Have you unplugged the fridge sir? checked for any electrical disconnections? dust clogging your tubules in the back? Enough space between the wall and fridge in the back? sometimes these will do it. Your fridge needs air to oxygenate the tubules so that it does not overheat and not work.

A Big hammer? or have you tried turning it off at the mains for about 15 - 20 mins then back on again that should reset it.

My Kenmore Upright Freezer Model 25326432100 flashed "ER."


My freezer was purchased in February, 2004. It is a self defrosting freezer but ice has started forming along the bottom shelf and back wall. Also, after cleaning the freezer the other day it has stopped clycing. The freezer will stop running only if I turn it down to the #1 setting and then it will not come back on. If I turn it up to a higher setting the compressor will not stop running. It ran for over 24 hours and would not cycle unless I turned it off or set it at the #1 setting. When I unplugged it and pulled it away from the wall, there was a green water spot the size of a dinner plate underneath the freezer. Help!! Very Unhappy this freezer is only 6 years old.

The compressor works for a few seconds but then stops. The freezer is over temperature.


Check the condenser fan motor (next to compressor) make sure it is running. Next change relay (inside black box) on compressor.

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.
