Question about Kenmore 7.5 cu. ft. / 212 liter Upright Freezer 24701
I am moving to Europe were the power is 220V-50Hz. The specs on the compressor show it will operate at either 115V-60hz or 110V-50hz. Can I safely & efficiently run the freezer using a step down voltage transformer?
Step Down Voltage Converters You can use this link to find a converter that should work. There are several other sites as well. You need to get a converter with enough wattage capacity to operate the freezer. I recommend you get one with a somewhat higher wattage rating than the freezer's wattage rating. For instance if the freezer is rated at 700 watts, I would get at least a 1000 watt converter. Good Luck !!! and Bon Voyage !

They make generic "compressor packs" to solve these. Your capacitors and relay and parts that support the compressor operation went out.
If you're really really like just the temp overload switch went and you can jumper bypass it. It usually looks like a piezo electric type of disc connected right onto the comp case itself.
But you're right with the DT, the motors go out on them a lot. They are usually for 4/6/10/12 hours depending on make and model. Sometimes the contacts go So if you could isolate them... they're on the larger side and will go from the power to the compressor. Use a jumper and test for a complete circuit to the plug and through the compressor before trying it.
By law all freezers and ovens have to have a schematic diagram on them. Often it it in a little plastic package and sometimes just wallpapered to the inside of a large piece of sheetmetal in back.
Good that you know how to use a meter!
