My artic freezer f22cwf4 compressor is not turning on. I have replaced the thermostat and all the fans are working. The unit is only 6 years old.


Not an expert opinion but seems that either you have low refrigerant and maybe the compressor is not therefore starting or the compressor has an issue, or the power to the compressor is missing.

I have a Turbo Air TGF-49F freezer and it is not cooling. The compressor unit seems to work but when I turn the unit on all I hear is the compressor running continuously but nothing gets cold.


Difficult for you to check this I'm afraid, if the fan on the cooling unit is working unless you have an experienced 'ear' you will not hear the compressor running or worse still occasionally clicking.
Possible faults are
1. Compressor not running (the fan will run even if the compressor does not) electrical fault
2. Compressor seized (consult your service guy) also true for the rest of these
3. Compressor not pumping
4. Refrigerant leak

Not much hope for a cheap repair

For the second time in the 4 or 5 years that I have owned my Kenmore 16.7 upright it quit cooling altogether again -- the first time I cooled the compressor with a damp (to wet) towel and a fan, being...


If the compressor is overheating I would check the condensor fan and make sure it's turning. Sounds like you wouldn't have noticed this already though. Also, if the compressor is turning on for 5 or 10 seconds and then clicking off then your start relay is probably bad. Pull the relay off the compressor and shake it. If something is loose inside then it's bad. That is, if it's a whirlpool made kenmore. Kenmore doesn't make appliances they only brand them. The refrigerator could have been made by Whirlpool, Frigidaire, GE, LG, Maytag, Amana, or other. So, it's depenant on who made it.

I turned the power on my freezer as now we decided to use it , before it was working fine it became very hot inside and the fan on the top didnot start?


Too many things can go wrong, but try this first, The fan on the top must be turning got the unit to work. Sometimes when a unit sits up for a while the fan bearings freeze up. Try trurning the fan with your hand of a screwdriver if it has a shroud around the fan. It may start moving and ususally when it does it will be arright after that. The inside will be hot because it will go into a defrost cycle 3 or 4 times a day and that puts a lot of heat inside the unit. Also the door frames are heated. Check to see if the compressor is running. If it is the small copper line going over tt the fan will be very hot. If not its not running. Co to start with clean the radiator coils on the outside and make sure the fan by the compressor is running.

Fans inside freezer will not turn - no cooling - compressor fan underneath is turning


The fans are controlled with a clixon that has a cut in at 5 degrees, and cut out at 20 degrees. If the unit is running and the fans are not comng on then I would have to say you are out of freon. But your condensor fan could be running and the compressor NOT be running which could be a problem with your compressor. Find out if your compressor is running by taking an amp draw. If compressor IS running then you are low on freon. If the compressor is running and your evaporator coil is cold and your fans AREN'T coming on then your clixon is bad.

My parents just gave us their old freezer. The sides and top are quite warm, though the cooling unit seems to be working inside. Is that normal?


No it's not normal. Make sure the condenser fan underneath near the compressor is running when the compressor run.

Kenmore Upright Freezer compressor running 6 seconds every minute


Usually the compressor runs pretty warm anyway. However if you think it's too hot I would start with the condenser coils located either under the unit or on occasion they are located on the back. The air flow across these coils as well as the airflow around the compressor must be maintained. I forgot to ask if the condenser fan is running. Check and make sure that the Fan is running and the air flow is good. Also, When you transported the unit did you move it standing vertically like it normally stands or did you lay it on its side. If you transported the unit on its side you must wait a minimum of 24 to 48 hours prior to start up or the unit could be ruined permanently. The refrigerant has to be utilized through the compressor as a gas. If the unit is on its side liquid refrigerant could be introduced into the compressor and can cause permanent damage. If this is the case I recommend that you turn the unit off at once and wait the 36 hours for the Refrigerant to settle then try it again. This transportation rule applies for any appliance That uses refrigerant, Air Conditioners etc. These units are not that hard to diagnose. The only other item that is usually a problem is the defrost timer. It is not very expensive and can also cause some of the same symptoms that you are eluding to. The defrost timer allows the freezer to periodically shut down to prevent the buildup of frost or ice on he evaporator coils and on the inside the unit. If it is defective, then the unit will either run all the time and cause the evaporator coils to freeze up or will not allow the compressor to switch on and it will not freeze like it should.
