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.
We purchased this same Kenmore chest freezer model 19502/19702 in 2010. In less than 2 years the compressor quit. If you do a search on this model you will see dozens of complaints. Don't waste your time or money on this freezer.
Check the outage votageIf power is reaching the electrical outlet, trace
the freezer wiring and test components as you go. Either there is a
short, which must be located and repaired, or the freezer has sustained
Because this occurred as a result of a power outage, you need to check that the outlet is OK. Plug something in the outlet like a lamp and see that it works normally. If that is OK, check the display for a light bulb that is burned out--incandescant bulbs do that occasionally in a power outage. If it is an LCD or LED display, the power supply is bad on the display board. Is the motor humming and making normal noises?--and your freezer is just not cooling? If no motor noise, look for a reliable and trustworthy appliance repair person. If the damage is costly, try to pursue a claim with the power company.
well don't be surprised, these electronic fridges run on dc electronics also and are sensitive to power surges. is this the freezer because there's no thermostats just the limit control. use a surge protector on the outlet to protect the electronics. if your still having problems get the limit sensors changed first (if applicable). if you want to go the safe way, I'd consider buying a surge protector and connecting it to the power.you can e-mail me with any questions @ firstname.lastname@example.org
is there any lights on in the freezer? try plugging the freezer into an outlet you know is working. there is no "reset" on the freezer so if lights are on and it still isnt working it could possibly be stuck in defrost or the thermostat could be stuck in the off position.
for the defrost problem: pull freezer from wall and look in the compressor area and you will see a control under the unit left of the compressor. using a flat blade screwdriver advance the timer clockwise a few clicks and it will probably come back on. if that doesnt work lets check the thermostat.
thermostat stuck: this is easy but you need to check def timer first. using the handle of you screw driver tap the thermostat knob firmly. if the contacts are stuck open when you hit it the contacts will release and the unit will come back on.
