I would start by checking the compressor relay.
Remove the relay from the compressor and shake it. If small particles come out or it sounds like a salt shaker or there is no sound at all or it smells and looks burned then it is bad. Replace it.

Hello,I defrosted my electrolux chest freezer and now problem is power is on but not freezing,alarm light keeps coming and keeps bleeping every 2 minutes and goes off and on


Is the compressor running? if it is running, but there is no cooling, it is time to buy a new freezer.
If the compressor is NOT running, I would suspect the compressor start relay.
How did you defrost it?

I have a small magic chef freezer that opens from the top. I has about 3 or 4 cu. ft. of freezer space. Lately a buzzer has been going off every 15 or 20 minutes. It buzzes for about 5-10 seconds and then...


With the time as the compressor gets old the buzzing will increased, its not a bid deal, just set the thermostat to 1 during the winter, saves you energy and give the compressor more time to rest.

This unit was purchased new 61 months ago. First instance of any problems, ever, today it seems food isn't being kept frozen solid. We suspect the compressor is having a problem. There was no sound...


Yes it is a very big concern.It sounds to me like your condenser is dirty and the compressor gets hot and goes off on overload.You can tell by putting your hand NEAR the compressor.Be careful as the compressor can be very hot

Evap coil eventually freezes. But it will maintain 10. The boar


It sounds like you may be low on refrigerant (freon). One way for a novice to check this is to look at your compressor. There are two line coming out of the compressor. The comressor is the black thing about the size of a bowling ball under your freezer behind the grill. The small line coming from the compressor to the "radiator" behind that lower grill should be very hot coming from the compressor. The big line going into the compressor should be very cold to the touch. If that is not the case you are low on refrigerant. Without gauges and a supply of refrigerant you can't fix it yourself. Second thing to check is the thermostat is it set all the way to cold? If not turn it clock wise 1/5 turn and watch to see if the temperature goes down.

Freezer motor cuts in and out. Runs for about thirty seconds at a time. Now have red low temp light on and everything is defrosting. Sides of freezer used to be very warm and are now cold.


Good day,
Some kind of compressor problem. If it will run a true 30 seconds then it is either the start relay mounted on the side of the compressor hanging up and not releasing after the compressor starts or the main windings in the compressor are starting to short, causing the compressor to draw too much current followed by the protective overload shutting the compressor down.
The relay is pressed onto the compressor pins and can be removed.

A parts house should be able to test it for you. If bad, replace. If it tests good then the problem is internal to the compressor and would need the attention of a qualified tech.

P.S. If the unit is under 5 years of age, leave it alone and call for factory service. It may or may not be covered but if so it would be necessary to preserve the balance of the 5 year warranty.

Low temp alarm goes off on Kenmore upright freezer


The alarm is there for a reason. I wouldn't disconnect it. Maybe the compressor is low on gas. If your thermostat is on extremely low, try moving it up to a less cold position. Look in your owner's manual for recommended settings.

Failing that, get ready to shell out some bucks to the service man!

Freezer quit working


I suspect when you lifted or moved the freezer, you tilted the compressor such that the oil washed out into the refrigeration lines. Common when people tilt refrigeration equipment the wrong way.
