Chest freezer model mfco5mobw4 been plugg in for 2 days now set on the coldest setting not getting cold compressor is warm

God day,
Either the refrigerant has leaked out or the compressor isn't pumping properly. If you can put your ear up to the unit and it hums that is the compressor running.
No practical repair possible unless the unit is under 5 years of age in which case you are entitled to factory warranty service.

Chest Freezer MCCF7WBX.Magic Chef.. Worked fine for a 1.5 years. Compressor turned off & on to cool unit when needed. The way it should. Now it continuously runs. Unfortunately the warranty is out....

Good day,
Could be a tstat, but the machine should be running extremely cold.
Confused as to the age. You said it was 1 1/2 years old. If that is the case. the compressor,and all connecting tubing are under a 5 year factory warrant.
You could replace the tstat, and if within a few days the problem isn't solved, then the rest of the serious problems are covered by factory warranty.
Call your selling dealer for factory warranty service.

MCCF7W Runs, but won't freeze....

Sounds like the refrigeratnt has leaked out. It is not worth repairing. The only other possibility is the cold control but I would not buy one until a servicer has looked at it.

Kenmore upright freezer model 29238 keeps tripping switch

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.

Warranty forLFFH2067D frigidaire freezer

The standard warranty for refrigerators and freerzers is one year on all parts and labor and 5 years parts and labor on the sealed system which consists of the compressor,condenser coil and evaporator coil. This would include loss of freon.

Can a fridigidare fc5n chest freezer be recharged

If the unit's Compressor is not starting you need to bypass everything and test the compressor directly to see if it will run. best done buy a qualified Appliance tech unless your from and electrical background? also when the motor/compressor is tested they can see if the freezer starts to freeze down. Because of the cost of changing the Compressor and the fact that a lot of the gas leaks in these units can not be repaired due to the leak being inside the freezer walls a new Freezer is still the best option. Also when a Fridge or freezer is left to sit for 5 years the Compressor is likely to have seized and rust may ave formed inside units copper pipes. Cheers
I'd recommend a new Fisher and Paykel Chest freezer with a extended warranty. cheers

Kenmore chest freezer not working

Remove the panel covering the compressor. Remove the relay plugged on the side of the compressor and shake it. If it rattles or has any burned spots it is shorted out. Try replacing it first. Make sure you replace it with the correct replacement, not a fit-all. If this is not the problem you will need to replace the compressor. If it is less than 5 yrs old the compressor should still be in warranty. If so call Sears, it will be repaired free of charge. If it is out of warranty buy a new freezer.
