Freezer does not work

I bought a second hand freezer and pluged it in after 2 1/2 hours. It worked first but it stoped working. It does not operate at all. The wall breakers and outlet is working. Whenever I try to put the electric cord in the outlet, the reset light went on.

Re: freezer does not work

The unit may be stuck in a defrost mode.Check the timer.Turn the knob to take it out of defrost.The unit will start up when this is done and the defrost timer is the culprit.

Freezer losing temperature

Hi Julie. I'm Roger. It sounds like the operating thermostat is not working When not in the fast freeze mode. Can you here a click sound from the thermostat when turning the temperature up and down short of fast freeze? We normally charge them to operate at -10 to -20 degrees. The inside temperature will normally only reach a temperature around 18 degrees warmer. The operating thermostat should allow you to regulate its temperature any where from that capability up to where you want it. See if your thermostat makes a clicking sound when adjusted. The warning light comes on because it knows the box temperature is higher than it is set for and is warning you of that. If it uses a printed circuit (PC) board, the click will dot be very loud. listen closely. Let us know how this turns out for you. We have very good refrigeration techs. here. Someone else here may have an idea too.

Freezer quit working

I suspect when you lifted or moved the freezer, you tilted the compressor such that the oil washed out into the refrigeration lines. Common when people tilt refrigeration equipment the wrong way.
