Question about Frigidaire Freezers
I just bought a used chest freezer with a rats nest in the compressor area. Thought I was getting a deal! After cleaning out the rats nest I discovered they had chewed a lot of the wires and the power cord is missing. They accessed the area through a 1 1/2'' hole in the back that looks like something mounted there. This unit was Mfg. for Sears by Fridgedaire and neither has a wiring diagram available. I can splice most of the wires by color coding but there are more wires than the picture Sears shows of the wiring harness they sell, leading me to believe something is missing. Sears parts breakdown does not show any cooling fan on this model. Can that be right? I suspect that something mounts to this hole in the back of the chest feeding into the compressor area but nothing reflects this in the Sears parts book. I don't know where these extra wires go without some kind of wiring diagram. Can anyone help me with a little info and/or wiring diagram. It is a Kenmore Freezer Model # 25311541102 Mfg. 12/01.

green with yellow are ground wires and usually are from compressor to system chassis from your 3 prong plug use the green wire and just find a point on the chassis to pin to if you can get model number you can find on kenmore website

youyr best bet would be to build a frame that the casters are welded to and there are no holes in the outer shell of the freezer. some L shaped angle would work nicely for this application and then there would be plenty of support for when the freezer is loaded up with product. Be sure that teo of the casters are lockable and two in the swivel freely.

SOURCE: missing power lead
did someone chop the lead off it? if so why did they?
this freezer may be electricaly unsafe. If the lead has been chopped off then there should be the tails of the old lead still on the terminals, so just replace them with the new lead.
I would strongly advise you to test it for any potential shorts etc before you turn it on.

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!
