It sound like your compressor is in trouble, I would try and see what amp. the compressor is running in this 30 seconds. If it is over the name plate requirement I would try to change a 3 in 1 electrical component to see wheather it helps. Check your amp. at all time.Hope this help.God Bless

Normally on some older freezers, If you suffer from a "brown out" or a short term loss of power, the compressor will try to start, but since the pressure in the system hasn't dropped on the high side, it will have a very hard time doing so. In that case, try un-plugging your freezer (or fridge) and plugging it back in about 5 minutes later.

The start relay should be on the side of the compressor and attached to the three prongs that wiring attaches to on the compressor.Is the problem causing the breaker to trip in the circuit breaker box? Sea Breeze
You can have someone match the start relay and the run capacitor at a refrigeration supply store near you or you can contact Summit

My fridge is not cooling, compressor starts and goes off within 20 seconds is it due to the thermostat problem?


Hello,

That could be caused by the thermostat, to see if that is the problem your would need to gain access to thermostat, remove the wires to it and check for low resistiance using a meter,if the reading on the meter shows anymore that 5 ohms resistiance the t-stat is bad.
A more common cause of that is the relay attached to the compressor is burnt out, a relay/overload kit could be purchased from your local appliance parts store for usually under $40.00

I hope my answer has helped,

My Kenmore Upright Freezer Model 25326432100 flashed "ER."


My freezer was purchased in February, 2004. It is a self defrosting freezer but ice has started forming along the bottom shelf and back wall. Also, after cleaning the freezer the other day it has stopped clycing. The freezer will stop running only if I turn it down to the #1 setting and then it will not come back on. If I turn it up to a higher setting the compressor will not stop running. It ran for over 24 hours and would not cycle unless I turned it off or set it at the #1 setting. When I unplugged it and pulled it away from the wall, there was a green water spot the size of a dinner plate underneath the freezer. Help!! Very Unhappy this freezer is only 6 years old. S in Phila.

Compressor is bad the clicking noise is the Start Relay/Overload is kicking on and off. compressor is warm because it's trying to start but can't Frigidaire is known for bad compressors. I don't think the Start Relay/Overload is bad because the compressor gets warm.

Freezer runs for 2 seconds then stops, and runs this cycle.


Good day,
The shut off is due to the protective overload mounted on the side of the compressor to shut it down, if it can't start.
On the side of the compressor is a cover box that contains the overload device, a start relay, and on some models, a start/run capacitor.
These items can to a degree tested with an ohm meter, but it is wiser to take them to an appliance parts house for testing.
If any are found defective, replace them. If not, the compressor has failed internally and needs to be replaced. Close to $400.00 if not more.

Freezer compressor not able to start and noisy.


It sounds like the compressor is locked (seized). The current overload is doing it's job by opening the circuit. Take a current reading, on the common leg, while the compressor is trying to start. The locked rotor amps (LRA) for that compressor will be indicated on the compressor tag. If it's drawing LRA while trying to start, you need a new compressor. Which is the costliest part in that unit and requires specialty tools to replace.

Freezer is not running even the power receptacle is working


there are no fuses on a domestic freezer that i have ever seen. there are no fans and there are no traditional freezer coils. so you have only a few things that could be going on. if the temp is way up the thermostat should sense hot and close and send power to the compressor and it should run. you can do one of two things . find the thermostat inside the freezer usually . gently remove cover and check incoming terminal and outgoing terminal. if you show 120 volts its open and the stats bad. if you don't show 120 volts between terminal connections then its closed and the compressor is failing to start. if power is coming into the stat when checked to ground then go to compressor and see if there are starting components . they are a start capacitor and a START RELAY AND PERHAPS A OVER LOAD . SEE IF POWER IS ARRIVING AT THE COMPRESSOR. IF SO CHECK THE MICROFARED OUTPUT OF THEcapacitor . you need within 10 percent of the rated value. also you can gently remove the overload , a little plastic disc and look on the bottom side and see if its cracked or burned looking. an amp probe on the compressor will tell you what amps it pulls if it trys to fire up . 6 to 10 is good 30 to 50 is mechanically locked up and then the overload trips. if compressor is ice cold to touch then your not getting power to the compressor and its not trying to run. if its hot to the touch thens its trying but start caps weak , or its locked up. most domestic freezers are not worth the cost of a new compresssor anymore. good luck

sounds like an issue witrh the microprocessor to me as well, although you tried bypassing it it still didnt work its quite possible that the fan aand compressor are runnig on different voltagfe the 110v , new energy effient compressors are starting to run w/ 220, an inverter built into the circuit board could be steppin up power,
