This is normal if your freezer is in good working condition. If your compressor runs constantly then there is a problem. Once the unit reaches the set temperature the compressor shuts down. The set temperature should be between -2 & +2 degree F. The set temperature also depends on how full the freezer is. There will be a time when the freezer like refrigerators will shut down. This is relative to the term, "Frost Free". The unit will shut down for about 10 minutes. This occurs ever 8-10 hours. The heater turns on to defrost your freezer coil. It sounds like you are in good shape.

SOURCE: freezer stops and start

ice cream is always the last to freeze and a temp of minus -10 degrees is usually required to get it to get hard. if you put the ice cream in the door it will be especially tough to freeze. a good thermometor is a good investment as you can observe the temps. usually ten degrees or 20 degrees is what they run. yes they do cycle on and off as long as they hold temps thats good. the outside of the freezer gets warm because the hot compressed refrigerant is spread through piping near its surface giving up its heat of compression . setting the stat to max will freeze the ice cream eventually but utility bill suffers . good luck

SOURCE: Problem with Maytag Chest Freezer model MQC1557aew.

First make sure than the condensing coil in the freezer is clean of dust and dirt(it is behind the grill vent in the bottom side of the freezer where the compresor is) If it is clough brush the dirt off after you unplugit.When is clean wait a few minutes ,5, and plugg it back at the GFI outlet and see if work If still tripped the outlet you may have to replace it.

SOURCE: compressor click

Possibly. However it sounds like the compressor is running hot which could be the relay assembly sticking with the start windings in the circuit.

SOURCE: my chest freezer has stopped working . kelvinator

If the light isn't even coming on, check for voltage at the outlet. If that is good, check the bulb in a lamp or drop light. If both those check out, then the fun starts.
Could be that the thermostat is stuck (rusted) in the open or off position.

My reset button on my chest Ken more freezer keeps going off. Push reset it stops then hours later goes off again


There is an excessive current draw. The compressor is the first thing to check, then the inside and outside fan motors. If there is a strip defrost heater element that has gone bad, that will do it too.
