Hello Roy;
My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

Sounds like your freezer is working fine. What happens is your freezer will go about 20 degrees above the set temperature and shut down. Once the freezer goes 20 degrees below the set temperature your compressor will kick in and the cycle repeats.

If your compressor is running all of the time, then something is wrong.

As long as your freezer is maintaining temperature you are fine.

Roy,
Sounds like something is causing your compressor to kick the overload. It could be the overload itself or it could be the start relay or it could be a locked compressor. Probably best to call a service tech.

My GE FUF14SVRWW upright freezer will shut off for no reason. The digital temperature control will be blank, the light will not turn on, and freezer isn't running. I will unplug it for a few minutes and...


Ach, digital controls! It sounds like the logic board/panel is on the fritz. No cure unless you can identify the malfunctioning component and replace it.

The freezer turn on when you plug in then run for 5 sec. then stops


If the unit is a few years old, then the compressor is faulty, and the protective thermal cutout is operating.

. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. The relay is a small usually black cube shaped electrical part plugged into the compressor or wired to it nearby. It may appear burnt or rattle when shaken if it's bad. The two connections should show continuity with an amp meter. If it's good then it's most likely the compressor causing the problem.

My kenmore mod#2539183511 chest freezer comes on @30 sec goes off for @3-5 sec tries again.Need diag help or wiring diagram.


Sorry to read about your problem. you can have many different problems.

a wiring diagram will not help you in this case. all 3 items below at at the compressor.
odds are you will have to have the compressor replaced.

1. Failing compressor
2. Defective start cap
3. Defective overload protector


I suggest you call a service company.

If it started to cool again the compressor was running. Check the condenser and make sure it is clean. Provide as much air movement through the garage as possible . 100 degrees is a high temperature to be operating a refrigerator in.
