It is most likely the relay and overload or the thermostat.  What is the complete model # on the sticker inside the freezer?

SOURCE: Compressor Stopping

compressor is running overloaded possible problems bad relay/overload /capacitor dirty or clogged condensers if the unit uses a condenser fan suspect a bad fan. and defective thermostats are notorious for short cycling. id check the coils first and if dirty clean up maybe that can be the major problem.

Usually the compressor runs pretty warm anyway. However if you think it's too hot I would start with the condenser coils located either under the unit or on occasion they are located on the back. The air flow across these coils as well as the airflow around the compressor must be maintained. I forgot to ask if the condenser fan is running. Check and make sure that the Fan is running and the air flow is good. Also, When you transported the unit did you move it standing vertically like it normally stands or did you lay it on its side. If you transported the unit on its side you must wait a minimum of 24 to 48 hours prior to start up or the unit could be ruined permanently. The refrigerant has to be utilized through the compressor as a gas. If the unit is on its side liquid refrigerant could be introduced into the compressor and can cause permanent damage. If this is the case I recommend that you turn the unit off at once and wait the 36 hours for the Refrigerant to settle then try it again. This transportation rule applies for any appliance That uses refrigerant, Air Conditioners etc. These units are not that hard to diagnose. The only other item that is usually a problem is the defrost timer. It is not very expensive and can also cause some of the same symptoms that you are eluding to. The defrost timer allows the freezer to periodically shut down to prevent the buildup of frost or ice on he evaporator coils and on the inside the unit. If it is defective, then the unit will either run all the time and cause the evaporator coils to freeze up or will not allow the compressor to switch on and it will not freeze like it should.

SOURCE: White Westinghouse upright freezer not cold enough.

Coils are probably underneath. remove the grille at the front (usually you just rotate it down to pull off) and then vaccum inside with a wand. If there aren't any coils there either, pull the machine out from the wall, and remove the lower panel from the back side. Inside you should find a fan next to a coil. Make sure that fan is working, and if it isn't make sure it is getting power.

Vacuum out as good as you can, and if you can use compressed air to blow it clean, even better (vacuum first because it will kick out a lot of dust).

If vacuuming the coils doesn't work, then you probably have a freon leakage problem, in which case it is probably not worth the cost of repair.

Freezer stopped after power outage


If the sides are hot, look at the defrost timer. Sounds like it has stopped running with the defrost elements on. The compressor has a safety switch on it that opens either if the compressor gets too hot or if it pulls too much current when starting. If your power flickered a lot before coming back on, that triggered the safety switch. Now that it's running normally, I wouldn't worry. The defrost timer is your problem now.

The fridge isn't getting cold. It has been close to 48 hours since I plugged it in.


You haven't said if you could hear the compressor running. If so then either the compressor is shot or there is a refrigerant leak. If it's not running it could be a bad cold control or the compressor starter. Oh and check to see that you have power at the receptacle that it's plugged into, I've been to calls of the refrigerator not working only to find out the it wasn't plugged in or the power was off at the receptacle.

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.

The compressor works for a few seconds but then stops. The freezer is over temperature.


Check the condenser fan motor (next to compressor) make sure it is running. Next change relay (inside black box) on compressor.

Check to see if there is a reset on the compressor or close to it. Turn your control knobs up and down and see if you hear a "click". You might cause it to engage at that point. Let me know how this does.

Upright freezer stopped working


That clicking sound is your compressor tightening up(clixon switching on and off.). Pull the freezer out and feel the compressor. If very hot and not running, there is your problem.
