Red light blinking with audible alarm. Compressor


That is the compressor starting relay trying to start the cooling cycle and the overload protector kicking off. You can try installing a new start device for about $50.00 but you are most likely looking at a compressor replacement which runs about $400.00

Freezer won't kick on


That is the overload protector on the compressor. Keep the door closed to preserve the cooling you have from the frozen food. Leave it unplugged for about an hour. Bang on the compressor with a rubber or wooden hammer then plug it back in. If it does not start you either need a new start relay or a compressor.

Condensing unit terns off but won't come back on kicks off breaker


If it runs, turns off, then tries to restart and kicks breaker, look for bad start components. Check start relay, start capacitor. It may be trying to restart too quickly and the compressor over amps and breaker trips. The system needs to have at least 3 minutes of off time before trying to restart. This allows the pressures in the system to balance enough so the compressor can overcome the high side pressure and start. I've seen where people turn the control up and down very quickly causing the compressor to over amp and trip breakers and over loads.
Hope this gets it for you.

Everything works fine, except when the compressor kicks in the panel breaker trips.


Most likely a short in the compressor electrical components (relay, overload,capacitor) Supco makes a 3 in 1 that you could use. If this works fine, if not "bad compressor".

Freezer Just Stop Working


You should not run your freezer from a strip plug, only from a wall outlet. It is OK for a small spark to occur since the freezer is trying to start the compressor as you plug it in. If there is a big spark that kicks out the circuit breaker if you plug it into a wall socket, then there is a short in the compressor or light circuit in the freezer. A strip plug in probably will not have the capacity to run the freezer. Plug it into the wall socket and try that. If you have a circuit breaker kick out, then it's your appliance. Hope this helps you, Rick

Kenmore Freezer 20.3 cu.ft. won't kick on


Poor mom..:) You need a technician for that problem. But much better if you buy new one because your unit is already 14 yrs old the labor and parts are expensive. For this problem I think the compressor is already burned or stuck up.
