Question about Freezers
Obtained a small holiday [by lowe's] upright freezer [WUF5/C]that was being abandoned because it won't turn on at all. when plugged in the compressor isn't trying to start.
this model doesn't have an interior light to help determine if it's getting power.
i don't see any obvious shorts or power cord damage so i suspect it's something else. any suggestions on what to start looking at?
First , disconnect the power to the freezer . Remove the thermostat ( piece with the dial ) and put the 2 wires togather . Reconnect power and see if compressor will start . If so , then the thermostat is bad . You would have to order from a parts house .

Testimonial: "thanks. i wasn't sure if the thermostat was the first place to check. i can get my hands on a volt/ohm meter to test it too!"
