SOURCE: Some food is thawing in my chest freezer

these frigidaire made freezers are notorious for having restrictions in the sealed systems that will cause exactly what your describing.

what happens is oil moves around in the freon system and pools up in the capillary tubes and the freon is not able to flow properly. if the unit is under 5 yrs old then should be inwarranty to sears. if its over 5 then probably cheaper to purchase a new one..

SOURCE: Can I Mount Casters with Screws into Bottom of Chest Freezer?

youyr best bet would be to build a frame that the casters are welded to and there are no holes in the outer shell of the freezer. some L shaped angle would work nicely for this application and then there would be plenty of support for when the freezer is loaded up with product. Be sure that teo of the casters are lockable and two in the swivel freely.

Sorry to read about your problem. you can have many different problems.

a wiring diagram will not help you in this case. all 3 items below at at the compressor.
odds are you will have to have the compressor replaced.

1. Failing compressor
2. Defective start cap
3. Defective overload protector


I suggest you call a service company.

I have tried to help you. Please help me, by Vote/Rate my response. Thanks.

If you live in the Denver area, I can help you.

SOURCE: kenmore freezer leaking green

It's not refrigerant. Refrigerant would have evaporated straight away. What did you have in the freezer when it went off? It may be refrigerant oil, in which case mop it up with paper tissue and clean the area with detergent. It's no more toxic than any other oil.It's most likely to be excess ice/frosting leeching from inside the cabinet. Again, mop up with tissue paper.

Black and decker chest freezer on frost in the upper half of the freezer, the other half going down to the bottom is just cold with no frost and also the top of the inner part of the door is making ice.


You may have a leak of refrigerant, you may have a warm air leak when the lid is closed, or you may just need to defrost it manually. use heat ONLY, do NOT poke at the ice or frost with anything

My kenmore 19.7 cu.ft. chest freezer is not running and the compressor is hot


Place a volt meter set for amp draw around one wire of the compressor. If you do not have a constant amp draw replace the start relay on the compressor.
If you do have a constant amp draw the compressor is bad or you have a refrigerant leak.

Chest freezer not freezing on bottom


Sounds like a circulation problem. Does it have a fan inside the freezer. Should be bdhind the floor or one of the wall panels. There should be a vent for the air to circulat through. If so check to make sure it's running when the compressor runs.

Frigidaire Deluxe Chest Freezer is constantly


Two things to check without knowing the model number.

It is possible the drain plug was left out or not inserted correctly after defrosting and it is leaking..

Also there is sometimes an evaporator pan with a heater element on the bottom. If the heater element failed the evaporator pan would overflow.

Freezer leaking water


sounds like you have a clogged defrost drain tube. removing back panel of freezer will give you acess to drain trough, melt away the ice with a hair dryer, youll find a drain hole under there somwhere,pouring boiling water down the drain will clear it pretty quickly( i use a steam machine purchased from the infomercials works awesome, after you clear it and all water drain down tube wrap a piece of solid copper wirearound the heater( black calrod heater right above the drain trough) and stick it in the whole maybe an inch or so. now everythime the heater comes on to defrost it will prevent the hole from freezing over
