Question about Freezers
Compressor will not turn on, checked power coming in ohm'd out compressor, both fine. Interior & exterior lights work, thermostat doesn't illuminate or indicate temperature. Belongs to a church-lady who bought it new in 2007, and is cooking for a wedding for 200 next week and REALLY needs it working ASAP! Please help!
It was previously suggested that the defrost timer may need to be reset, but I could not find one. The only thing behind the bottom front grate is a power status light. Where is the main circuit control panel located?
Set the thermostat to the coldest and check if there's power to the compresor relay , if yes the relay or the compresor are bad (in this case replace the relay which is the cheaper first step ,but if the compresor still won't start probably is burned out) If there isn't power to the compresor put a jumper wire to the thermostat if the compresor runs replace the thermostat.

the defrost timer may need reseting. when the defrost is on, it cuts power to the compressor so they don't run at the same time. it's usually behind the bottom front grate on the right side. also check the main circuit board. there's a fuse on it.
