Question about Frigidaire Freezers

Freezer Compressor Motor turns on and right back off

My upright freezer motor/compressor turns on and right back off, Is it the compressor or could it be a switch? It is not a frost free and is old but has never ever given me a problem. I did notice a switch in the very front underneath that has a temp dial and a couple of adjustment screws on it. I beleive it is a frigidare, probably at least 35 years old. Thanks for your help

Upright whirlpool freezer make loud noise when it comes on


This noise is the fan motor going bad because a bearing is worn out. You need to replace the fan motor before the compressor goes out.

Freezer motor will not turn on


Try cleaning the unit out and any coils you can reach (typically located near the bottom of the unit behind the toe grille). Do you hear the compressor running? The compressor is constantly meant to go on and off frequently to keep unit at a constant temperature. If you do not, the unit could possibly have a coolant leak or an issue with the internal sealed system including a faulty compressor, evaporate fan or main control board. Contact a professional move forward accurately.

My Kenmore up right freezer is not working properly. The fan in running however the condensor will come on for a few seconds and then turn off. The food is thawing out in the freezer and water is dripping...


When you say condensor you probably mean compressor. If the big metal motor at the back is making that noise that is your compressor. The compressor is either bad or the relay for the compressor is bad. I recommand replacing the relay first since it is your cheapest solution and then if that doesn't solve it then you can decide if you want to replace the compressor or not as this is not something you can do yourself and can be quite costly to do if you have a technician do it. Hope this helps.

You should try to un-plug the freezer and let it stand up-right over night to re-settle the freon back down inside of the compressor.

The compressor should normally get hot if it is doing it's job right, and there is a starter for the compressor motor (usually it looks like a large capacitor) that could have failed, or the defrost timer (if it has one) could be stuck, and you should be able to see the small dial on the defrost timer slowly turning, and if it does not turn, then replace the defrost timer.

Freeezer with no compressor activity


If all fans are running, but not compressor You could try to install 3 N 1 start kit, thats might help 50/50. If it will start compressor - be ready for compressor to go out soon. might work for a year.

The compressor works for a few seconds but then stops. The freezer is over temperature.


Check the condenser fan motor (next to compressor) make sure it is running. Next change relay (inside black box) on compressor.
