I have a Kenmore 5 cu ft freezer that won't come on. I've checked the plug in and it works fine. Where would I start looking for the problem????

If, by plug in you mean the socket, then you need to check the fuse in the power plug next.
At the very lease there should be some light on the unit that illuminate even if it does not FREEZE.
If the compressor comes on wait to see if there is any drop in temperature. then it is possible the fuse was faulty.

see below links for more information on possible causes

Chest Freezer Stopped Working 14 years old

The first thing you want to ensure is that power is actually getting into the unit. i suggest that you do that by plugging a night light into the outlet and verify the presence or power. If no power, check your breakers. If power is present note that A chest freezer has only two working parts; the start relay that help the compressor start and a compressor. If you are getting clicking sound, your start relay may be out (inexpensive if you can buy it and install it yourself) or a bad compressor. if you need to call a tech for the repair, you may be able to purchase a new chest freezer that now consume HALF the power and for less than cost of repair.

Sear chest freezer stop working model#2539139180

The compressor probably shut off on thermal overload. This protects the compressor from burning up. What has happened is that a capacitor or evaporator has gone bad or it could be low on freon. Have someone take a look at it. However, if it is older than 8-10 years old, consider replacing it. This could be the beginning of the end.

Kenmore freezer model C10BLEM blows circuits. I just bought it used. At original owners it worked well. I plug it in and after a couple of minutes it blows the circuit. I plugged it into the furnace...

If it is a chest freezer, almost certainly it is the compressor. Only way to check is to pull the power plug out then remove the compressor wires from the terminals then make sure it doesent touch the frame of the freezer, then plug the power back in and see if the power trips again. If not, there is the problem.

Frigidaire chest freezer- the compressor tries to start for three seconds or so and then the circuit breaker for the outlet trips.

This sounds like a bad overload relay or locked up compressor. If you are very technical, you can do some troubleshooting by checking to see if the compressor pulls "locked rotor" amps when it tries to start. This information should be on the unit nameplate and will be listed under "LRA". This requires special testing equipment (an amprobe). Also check for any bad connections at the plug and the terminals where the cord terminates inside the electrical compartment on the freezer.

Something else to try is to plug the freezer into a different electrical outlet and see if the same problem occurs.

If the freezer is over 15 years old and the compressor is bad, it will not be worth the cost of repairs.

I have a GE chest freezer and the exterior green light has started flashing. The freezer is less than a year old.

Is this just a "Power-on" light to let you know it's plugged in and has power? This is probably just a "neon" (although the actual gas inside is hydrogen for the green color) bulb and sometimes they will do the flickering thing literally forever. In a way it's a good thing as it makes you look at it. If it really concerns you, or if it is actually a warning that something is going wrong (it should say in the manual, you DO have the manual don't you?) have it fixed under the warranty.

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.

My brand new freezer wont freeze

I would plug it into a different plug in - not one that is on the same circuit that it is plugged into now. If the plug in is working for other things, it still may be bad and not able to handle the load of the freezer. If your freezer will not work on a completely different circuit, then there could be something wrong with the freezer, but it is not likely since two of them should not be bad. Seems to me more like an electrical problem in your location. Hope this helps you, Rick

Kenmore chest freezer not working

Remove the panel covering the compressor. Remove the relay plugged on the side of the compressor and shake it. If it rattles or has any burned spots it is shorted out. Try replacing it first. Make sure you replace it with the correct replacement, not a fit-all. If this is not the problem you will need to replace the compressor. If it is less than 5 yrs old the compressor should still be in warranty. If so call Sears, it will be repaired free of charge. If it is out of warranty buy a new freezer.
