That clicking sound is your compressor tightening up(clixon switching on and off.). Pull the freezer out and feel the compressor. If very hot and not running, there is your problem.

Got another question about a freezer


I have seen freezer stop working because the owner pulled it out to clean behind it and pushed it back into place too far. This "Chocked" the air flow around the condenser and caused the failure. Be sure condenser is clean and air can circulate. Older units have coils up the back and newer ones have them underneath and utilize a fan. You can use a vacuum on the the underneath ones. Be sure fan runs under there.

Frigidaire freezer quits running


actionsnax please remove the freezer from the GFCI. What is happening on this old unit is that if the compressor shuts off then tries to come back on before the pressure in the system equalizes, the compressor can pull 12 amps. This is normally higher than the trip point of the GFCI. I had this happen years ago with a brand new Amana SXS refrig, in that case no one knew the unit was on a GFCI. The manufactures require that this units not be on a GFCI.
Hope this helps

Burning Smell


Keep it unplugged and look for burned wires, or rubber wires hardened from extreme heat. This will be a good start in finding what is going wrong. One more thing to check is if the compressor is heating up after running for a while. Let it run for 20 min or so, shut off the power and feel the compressor. Is it hot?
