A refrigerant line may have been damaged in the move, loss of refrigerant or a kinked line has stopped the compressor from working, need to attach refrigerant gages to find the problem and know the refrigerant level

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: GE chest freeze won't get cold

the noise your hearing indicates the possibility of a bad start relay on the comp or possibly it just came loose during the move. on the side of the compressor you will see 2-3 wires running into an electrical connection reseat this first. if still no operation replace teh relay. you can purchase thru any reputable appliance parts dealer. after replacing the relay if you have no operation then likely problem is seized comp.
domestic freezers do not have low pressure switches that indicate low freon charge.

The standby light is still on


Are you sure it is a standby light? Usually the orange light is showing you it is in fast freeze. Try switching the orange button off and monitor the temperature. The freezer should cycle on and off, not run continuously.

Hi we have recently moved to a house an we have inherited a fairly new whirlpool chest freezer which works very well but there is a lot of condensation on the outside which results in small pools of water...


The insulation between the inside and the outside of the freezer haas become water logged, This can be twmporarilly remedied by switching off the freezer and letting the insulation dry out for a few weeks, less in hot dry climates, but the solution is temporary and the problem will reoccur. To have the foam replaced means a complete strip down of the freezer and is seldom worth the cost. I am sorry, but you will probably have to get used to living with the problem. Incidently, it does make inroads into your electricity bills.
