Tap on the thermostat , not hard , but not softly either , and see if the freezer starts . If so , replace the thermostat ( the piece behind the temp setting knob )

This could be caused by any number of things. Could be a grounded compressor. If you remove all leads from compressor and test from terminal to body of compressor with an ohm meter you should get no reading on your meter. ( or a very high meg ohm reading) If the neutral wire from the cord ( usually white) is in any way touching a grounded component then the GFCI will trip. If you have a bad defrost heater going to ground it could trip the GFCI. I assume this unit has ran on this GFCI before? You could buy a GFCI tester, that will tell you if the GFCI is tripping at the desired mA level. A GFCI should trip between 4-6mA. Have you plugged this freezer into a non GFCI receptacle to see if the unit functions?

You need to replace the defrost thermostat on the unit. You will need to remove the shelves and then the back wall to gain access to it. Here is the part to order.
