Danby DUF408WE Upright Freezer not working
Does the compressor feel warm to the touch. If it does, it will be proof that the thermostat is calling for cooling and is probably good. For the obvious questions: Is the freezer in an area below 80 degrees F, is the wall outlet in good shape and not hot to the touch, is the freezer plug not blistered around the prongs, is the door gasket against the face all the way around the mating surface on the chasis. If the compressor is hot, listen for a click every 2 to 5 minutes. If the click is present the starter is your last best hope. The click is the compressor trying to start. Without the proper tools you are pretty much up against a wall. One last suggestion is to check for loose wires under the compressor terminal cover. I would suggest you look up the compressor manufacturer for a visual on cover removal. Dont forget to unplug before attempting compressor cover work. I hope you havent tried to put screws through the outside walls of this freezer or damaged the shelves inside. Both are fatal for the freezer and no repair can be made. Good luck.
