Try thawing out the freezer....Put all your food in a cooler, unplug the freezer and leave the door open, let the freezer sit for a few hours then plug it back in, if this doesnt help you may need to recharge your refrigerant....If you have a model you can refill hope this helps

Hello,I defrosted my electrolux chest freezer and now problem is power is on but not freezing,alarm light keeps coming and keeps bleeping every 2 minutes and goes off and on


Is the compressor running? if it is running, but there is no cooling, it is time to buy a new freezer.
If the compressor is NOT running, I would suspect the compressor start relay.
How did you defrost it?

CHEST FREEZER NOT FREEZEING


2Possibilities. Some rat/mice may have chewed a wire or supply line to cause a leak or wire disconnect. Most likely you have a seal that has dried out and leaked the Freon out of the system. The compressor will turn on for a short while them turn off. Based on the age of the unit, repair is not advisable.

I cleaned my freezer and now it won't freeze


When you say "cleaned", did you defrost it? And. if so, could you have damaged the internal lining? Often the coil inside the wall of a chest freezer can fracture if hit or stabbed at during defrosting.
Other than that, is the compressor running (you would hear it)? it may have overheated. If not running, see if it feels hot (siezed) or cold (no power from thermostat). If cold, put it on fast freeze and see if it kicks into life (thermostat faulty) or not (compressor fault, time for a new freezer!)
Let me know how you get on!

See if you have 120 volts at the compressor if you do do you hear any clicking sound at compressor if not replace compressor Start Relay/Overload if you hear clicking sound the compressor may be bad or Start Relay/Overload the only way to know is to replace the compressor Start Relay/Overload. If you do not have 120 volts at the compressor jump out the thermostat you should have 120 volts at the compressor now if not you may have a defrost timer Prob. if this is shelf defrost unit check timer turn knob to see if it starts.

Unit runs continually with gurgling sounds


defrost fully once a year or more if you notice it frosting up.it should run at minus 18c to 20 c for best results. 0f is fine.gurgling noise is normal (liquid turning to gas before compressor turns it back to liquid).make sure door seals all round and the kids close the door asap after use......also if you portion up food prior to freezing and vacpack it it will last longer.and be easier to store/rotate.

Chest freezer, stopped freezing, Ptc relay attached to compressor has overheated to point of partially melting.


Some of the PTC relays just give out for no apparent reason. (the brown ones more than any other) But in your case you can see physical signs of overheating. I would suspect the compressor has seized up, or has a shorted winding.

Avanti chest freezer cf199 will not freeze. A


Sounds like your freezer has lost its charge of refrigerant. That motor sound is the compressor. And the internal thermal overload is tripping it out every minute because refrigerant also cools the compressor motor. Have a licensed repairman find the leak, seal it,and recharge it with R134a refrigerant.

Kenmore 23.1 cf Chest Freezer not cooling below 14F


Make sure everything is working, I.E. compressor, fans. Now I need to know if the freezer shuts off at 14 degrees, or does it continue to run without making temp. If it shuts off, then the first place to look is the thermostat. It may be out of calibration. If it continues to run, then the solution may be as simple as cleaning the condenser coil. or the defrost has malfunctioned somehow. Defrost probleams will cause excess ice on the inside coil. You may need to remove the panels to see how much ice is on it. It sounds like the compressor is good, as it is pretty cold. Just not cold enough. A deep freeze should be at least 0.
