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.

Re: Freezer won't freeze

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

Can i defrost a piece of beef cook it slice it then refreeze it

Yes you can. If it is roast beef you might want to freeze it in beef gravy. Make sure it is sealed real good and use freezer plastic bags or if you have a food sealing device to vaccumm seal it. Deep Freeze meats cooked or uncooked last longer in a Deep Freezer as well!

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.

Fridge won't cool but freezer working fine

Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

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.

GE ESS25XGMB WW freezer is not cooling everything melts. I've cleaned coil with vacuum unplugged and plugged back in and is working again.....but in time it will get warm in freezer again

How long did you unplug it for? A longer amount of time might have let the defrost coils melt. If your defrost coils keep on freezing up, the defrost timer might be bad.

Refrigerator not cool, freezer ok

Either the freezer continues to freeze up (most likely due to low refrigerant, due to a leak), or there is an obstruction between the freezer and the refrigerator (refrigerators get their cooling from the freezer).

Given that it works after you defrost it, I'm going with low gas. Call a professional to see if the leak can be fixed. If the unit is more than 10 years old, just get a new one.

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.
