If it started to cool again the compressor was running. Check the condenser and make sure it is clean. Provide as much air movement through the garage as possible . 100 degrees is a high temperature to be operating a refrigerator in.

SOURCE: chest freezer not freezing

home refrigeration units are not designed to work in low temperature areas. where temps will drop below 45f so that is your problem. this is listed in your owners manual if you want to verify. thx peyton

SOURCE: loud buzzing noise doesnt stop

Locate what is making the noise. There is a fan in the freezer behind the rear cover inside. There is a fan underneath accessed from the rear behind the cardboard backing. The compressor is also there with a starter/overload relay which could make the noise.

Is it a self defrosting? Or not? And how did you defrost it?If you scraped and chipped the ice away, you may have poked a hole in the evaporator and the refrigerant (freon) leaked out.

How can you keep a idylis chest freezer in garage during winter? temp below freezing


20 years ago guys used to put a 50 watt bulb down in the compressor area BUT the freezers today have been designed with the condenser in the freezer wall and don't retain any heat in the cold weather. Generally what you will experience is the temperature in the surrounding area drops to 10 degrees the freezer goes off and when the area begins to warm up the compressor tries to start with syrup for oil in its crankcase and cycles on its protector until it gets hot enough to warm the oil and allow it to run. Compressor life is shortened and the freezer temp is unstable. A self regulating crankcase heater could be purchased at a local supply house and wrapped around the compressor but I don't know if its ever been tried on a compressor that small or if you might overheat the compressor. ............Can you say garage heater? Its a matter of system design. All of the components for a commercial conversion are out there but a system that small is never considered. Sorry wish I could help more. Hope this helps and good luck.

Turned off freezer, because didn't need to use it. went to turn it on again but it wont get cold, also it's out in the porch during the winter. so it really cold out there.It does come on but won't get...


Good day,
If you can hear it running but does no cooling then either you have lost the refrigerant charge, or the system has developed a restriction somewhere in the lines. It will require the attention of a professional.. If the machine is under 5 years of age, then the factory will cover the repair.
Call your selling dealer for a warranty repair.

Can my kenmore chest freezer be in the garage during hot summers and cold winters in Minnesota?


Jeremy,

You can put a fridge/freezer in the garage. Be sure that the area is level so you don't warp the case which will cause sealing problems with the gasket. Also, clean the condenser frequently as dust and dirt will reduce efficiency.

Freezer is freezing but the outer wall are extremly hot


This is a normal condition.  The condensor coils are in the cabinet and their job is to remove heat which is why it is hot.  You will want to make sure the freezer isn't in a tight spot where air from the room can't flow across it.  Without good air flow it will become too hot and not cool properly and lead to the compressor failing too soon.
