Question about Kenmore 12.8 cu. ft. / 362 liter Chest Freezer 13312
When you plug in runs for 2 or 3 mins
It's either a bad thermostat, or a bad compressor kicking out on overload. There are other rare possibilities. A multi meter is the best way to check the thermostat (using ohms), but if you don't have one then you can unplug the box and wire around the thermostat and the plug the box back in to see if it runs longer. If so, then unplug the box and replace the thermostat. If you are unfamiliar with wiring then call a technician. Electricity can kill you if you don't know what you're doing, so don't chance it if you don't know anything about it.

If the compressor actually runs for more than a second or two its likely the compressor is bad. Some models had a 5 year warranty and some ten years on the compressor only. The replacement of the compressor is likely beyond your abilities unless you are a service technician.
A typical cost for such a repair can be more than the freezer may have cost you if nothing is under warranty. Good Luck.
