Freezer won't freeze

I have a deep freezer that was working fine. I unplugged it for the summer and when I plugged it back in - it no longer freezes. There is power to the unit and I hear clicking when I plug it in.

Sounds like you might have a bad relay on the compressor or the compresor is stuck and cycling on the overload... if you listen closly you should hear a low hum or buzz then a click... repeated ever 5-10 minutes tell overload cools and trys to restart again

Model number KFN9753ID freezer section not freezing. what do you think the problem might be

Might be the defrost timer failing - that happens. The evaporator coils freeze up then, and very little air can pass the ice-clogged evaporator coils.

It's only been happening since the onset of humid summer weather? Check the defrost catch pan underneath - I'll bet it's dry. Defrost the refrigerator manually (unplug the refrigerator, put everything into coolers wrapped in blankets, etc) for a good long while, then plug it back in again - I'll bet the freezer works like gangbusters again for a while. If so, and if it stops again after a day or two... then I'm VERY confident that the defrost timer board is ready for replacement.

Freezer won't freeze and fridge side freezing vegetables

In the back there is a radiator and it is frozen solid, you have to deice it, unplug the fridge and take the cover off and remove the ice build up, hair dryer should do the trick, or leave it unplugged for few hours.

I have a deep freezer,the light is on but doesn't freeze. It's only 2 yrs old what could be the problem?I unpluged it and waited 10 mins pluged back in and nothing the red light stayed on but...

Well a freezer is easy to repair. The circuit goes from one side of the power cord to the cold control and down to the compressor then out to the other side of the power cord. Id the control or compressor relay is open then she won't freeze. All the parts to it are listed HERE.
From the list I see an overload for the compressor. If that one is open it won't freeze. Bypass the temp control wires to see if she runs.

I have a GSL25JFPA BS that the frig side will not cool properly. Repalced the mother board. t stat in freezer and thermistor in frig. Freezer works fine. Damper will open when first plugged in but closes...

Unplug the refrigerator and then plug back in. Using multimeter check between J3-1 and J3-4.
Must be done within 10 seconds of starting. You should have 6 VDC. If you do replace damper, if not replace motherboard.

Freezer left open and now won't work

Try to unplug the unit from the wall and let it sit for a few minutes then plug back in. May reset the door alarm lock out. Also, moisture in the air can be drawn in and freeze up the whole thing. That means turning it off with doors open for about 36 hours... Moisture is a killer in a freezer, freezes and blocks up every air circulation vent, etc.
