High back pressure is generally a sign that the evaporator coil is clogged with debries or the fan isn't working I suggest checking this first.

Freezer stops running, unplug and replug and it starts??


Clean the condenser. It is probubally overheating. If the condenser is built into the sides of the freezer then the compressor overload could be faulty and needs to be replaced. It will be an overload/relay kit.

Kenmore 7.5 freezer stopped working.


Thanks for all the suggestions. I just replaced the overload relay and it does the same thing. Runs for a few seconds and the loud click from overload relay. I did notice the relay is really hot to the touch, if that matters.Coils on back are clean. I had noticed the last few months that the inside coils were frosting up quite a bit.Really had hoped it was the relay.

How is temperature controlled, refrigerant pressure? Thermostat? Does the top of the compressor get too hot to touch?

I would try replacing that overload and relay in the compressor. Your compressor may be shorted out. If it is, replacing relay and overload won't help.

My kelvinator upright freezer stopped freezing and it just kicks on and kicks right back of what could be wrong with it?


Start Relay/Overload or Compressor is bad. A bad compressor can make a Start Relay/Overload go bad but the only way to find out if compressor or Start Relay/Overload is bad is to replace the Start Relay/Overload if it starts and stays running you fixed it if Prob. returns in a week or so or if you have the same Prob. after replacing the relay the compressor is bad.

The freezer works fine, but if you unplug it, it won't start back up, you have to let it sit unpluged for about 30 minutes to an hour before it will come back on. Its like it needs to cool off, it does get...


The high side and low side of the refrigerant system , have to equalize , before the compressor can start . If you unplug , then plug back in , the high side has a lot more pressure , therefore the compressor will not start and the overload will cut the compressor off . When overload cools slightly , compressor will try to start again . If pressures not equalized , overload will cut compressor off again . As this happens , the compressor will get hotter and hotter . Eventually , pressure will equalize and compressor will continue to run . Very bad on compressor and components .

Won't run continuosly.


The first thing that I would look at is the compressor relay. The relay gives extra windings in the motor, power to get the compressor up to speed. It is a small thing that carrys a heavy load. (MORE)

Freezer compressor not able to start and noisy.


It sounds like the compressor is locked (seized). The current overload is doing it's job by opening the circuit. Take a current reading, on the common leg, while the compressor is trying to start. The locked rotor amps (LRA) for that compressor will be indicated on the compressor tag. If it's drawing LRA while trying to start, you need a new compressor. Which is the costliest part in that unit and requires specialty tools to replace.
