Question about Frigidaire Freezers
I have a Frigidaire Model LFFU1153DW2 unit. It's 4 yrs old. Noticed its not working. I turned it off completely and turned it back on. The unit comes on, but don't hear the compressor turning on. I heard some clicking noise around the left of compressor (around defrost timer), so I turned a few clicks on the defrost timer. The compressor comes on. At this time is my unit on defrost timer ? did I turn on the defrost timer manually ? Should I change the defrost timer ? or is it any other issue. Note: My wife had the freezer full, so full that the door will not shut. Is the overload sensor busted ? please help which part I need to replace. thx
...How will I know if the timer is busted ? When I first noticed this issue, my products inside the freezer was all thawed & pretty much at room temperature. So I figured the unit did not come off the defrost cycle. Can you please list some of the check's I need to do to isolate and change the right part. Thanks in advance for your help

The door seal is at fault. Regardless of the small tear it is not sealing well.
Take a dollar bill and close it in the door. Then pull on the bill to feel resistance.
You will find it pulls easily in some place. That is where your air leak is that is causing the condensation.
Do this about every 6 inches all the way around the seal.

Set the thermostat to the coldest and check if there's power to the compresor relay , if yes the relay or the compresor are bad (in this case replace the relay which is the cheaper first step ,but if the compresor still won't start probably is burned out) If there isn't power to the compresor put a jumper wire to the thermostat if the compresor runs replace the thermostat.

It sounds as if your compressor it's running. This could be a bad compressor, bad capacitor, bad thermostat. See that there are no fans or defrost, it is one of the other. I would start with checking the capacitor. You can replace it with a Supco 3 in 1. It cost around $30.00. Anything else is going to start costing $100.00 and more. If you need a freezer that big, I would have it fixed unless it ends up being the compressor.
Please rate solution

freezers have safety devices to protect themselves. The compressor has an internal overload to keep it from overheating. some have external reset buttons and some do not. either way the cause must be corrected. if the freezer was low on refrigerant you would see signs of oil near the coils, tubing, or compressor. If there is no leak, it overheats when there is airflow restrictions(dirty coils) or a fan has stopped working. only a few screws keep you from seeing all there is to see. If it is clean and the fan is running, then the compressor may just be the culprit
