Freezer won't stop running

I just bought this freezer second hand and I waited 24 hrs to re-plug it. Since I did, it will run continuously. I filled it with frozen food and no change. Is this normal?

Why will it not come on?


The rust shouldn't make any difference.

When you plug it in, does the interior light turn on? If not, suspect the wall outlet - test it for power by plugging in something else. If the interior light turns on, listen very closely to the freezer. It should hum. If it doesn't, toy with the freezer control inside - it may just be turned off. Turn it to about midpoint and listen very closely to it again. If still no hum, wait a short while, then feel carefully on the outside of the cabinet - it may be running through a defrost cycle. The outside of the cabinet may get warm while that's happening, especially around the door gaskets. Wait a while (half an hour, an hour, for the defrost cycle to finish - the freezer should run then.

If it never hums, then the compressor isn't running, so adding freon won't make any difference. Instead, suspect the defrost timer - that's a little electronic circuit board inside.

If it HUMS but never gets COLD, then you potentially have a freon leakage problem. It's difficult at best, though, to refill a refrigerator or freezer - they don't usually have refill taps.

Oh, yes. If the internal light never comes on but you've proven that the wall outlet has power, it's entirely possible that the plug is bad and needs to be redone.

Fridge freezer stoping after 24 hrs


most of these freezers have an automatic defrost cycle.
after so many hours of chilling it will stop and run a de-icing cycle.
this is accomplished by one or two heating elements.
if one of the elements is burned out it will not run the defrost cycle.
and will ice up quickly.
depending on the model the heaters will usually cost about 15 to 20 dollars and they are easy to replace.
look up the model of your freezer and download the pdf files they will usually have a pictorial diagram showing the location
a defrost timer usually does nt fail on them unless it is physically damaged.

Freezer not getting cold


Alissa,
Try placing two or three jugs of water in the freezer and wait 36 hrs. before opening.. If the water is frozen solid you have no problems.. if its not frozen, the call a service tech..

I just bought a second hand upright 20cubic foot frigidair freezer. Its been on for about 3 hours and it feels really hot to the touch on both sides. Did I just get taken or is this normal? It was running...


Did you lay it down when you moved it?
If so you need to leave it standing up for 12-24 hours before you turn it on.

Or you may have just been ripped of.

HI I HAVE AN OLD 13 CU. FT KENMORE UPRIGHT FREEZER. AFTER I DEFROSTED IT YESTERDAY AND AFTER IT HAD BEEN PLUGGED IN FOR ABOUT 6 HRS I NOTICED THAT THE SIDES OF THE FREEZER FELT VERY HOT . IS THIS NORMAL ?...


It had to run longer than normal to cool down the freezer again. The heat from the compressor running is what you feel.

I would not worry about it unless it is still hot after 24 hours. Then there is another problem.

Freezer quit working


I suspect when you lifted or moved the freezer, you tilted the compressor such that the oil washed out into the refrigeration lines. Common when people tilt refrigeration equipment the wrong way.

New chest freezer not getting cold


I am having the same problem. How long did it take?
I bought mine second hand and think it may be broken. I plugged it in 8 hours ago. I can hear it running but it's not cold yet.
