Try turning the temp control to off. Plug the freezer in for an hour and then turn the temp control down to start the cooling.

SOURCE: My freezer's defrost systems runs constantly

i dont think so i would look at the compressor kicking out on thermal overload or a faulty thermostat thermostats have two settings cut in cut out your cut in could be bad and not turning the compressor on till the temp reaches melting temps now if your hearing a click buzz then you need to look at the compressor and make sure the compressor fan is running but its not a defrost promblem

SOURCE: freezer not freezing

Is it running? You might need to put your ear up to machine, to hear it, They run very quitely.
If not running, could be a bad cold control (thermostat), or defective relay and overload mounted on the compressor body.
If the compressor is running but no cooling, then you're in serious trouble unless,
The unit is 5 years old or newer. In that case you have factory warranty on what is called the sealed system. Contact the dealer in that case for service. Service should be free.

    If it is tripping the breaker when the unit is in defrost this is will not be the capacitor. You could have a heater or defrost thermostat issue. Please contact a professional for a full diagnosis.

    QWhy won't magic chef 6 cubic chest freeze freeze anything after I defrosted it?


    Try plugging something else in the outlet. A lamp would work to make sure you did not trip a circut breaker when you plugged back in after defrost.

    Is it possible for a delfield freezer 6151 XL-S to trip a breaker every 2-3 hours if the TXV valve was faulty letting liquid get to compressor. This unit has had controller and relay start assembly...


    I would look to see if it is tripping during the defrost cycle. One of the heater elements my be faulty. Never heard of a bad TXV causing a breaker tripping, but I guess it's possible. I would adjust the superheat so that it is about 6 to 8 degrees just prior to unit reaching temp and shutting off. I'd start there.

    There is definately a ground fault in this unit. Also according to the service manual this is an "Electronic Defrost Control" similar to an "
    Adaptive Defrost Control" which determins the defrost initiation by the amount of run time. You cannot set this yourself.

    An rec code pops up on my freezer then it trips the breaker...whats the problem?


    "REC" means recovery. this is way the display shows as part of the defrost cycle. Look for a short in the heaters or some of the wiring and/or devices as part of the defrost circuit. Let me know if I can be of any further help.

    No power while plugged


    It probably has a circuit breaker located on the bottom of the fridge, behind the front filter. Also try looking inside the refridgerator side at the top. It may be red colored to indicate it is safety-related. Just push it in - but don't be surprised if it trips again.

    WARNING: RESET ONLY ONCE TO AVOID A FIRE OR ELECTROCUTION SITUATION.

    You may have an internal problem, in which case the freezer's circuit breaker is your best friend!

    Note that the self-defrosting freezers have a timer that shuts them off periodically so they can defrost. Sometimes the timer does the defrosting in the middle of the day, giving the appearance of a failure. This could be your problem.

    Freezer's power is dead


    check the plug itself may be melted. next check the cord itself at terminations inside the freezer compressor section. if it's plugged into a gfci try resetting the gfci receptacle. check breaker, may have tripped off.
