Re: 15 cu. ft. chest freezer

Remove the back panel, if there is one, find the compressor. Put your hand on it. If its very hot, you have a problem. You should feel a slight vibration if good and running. If The overload is shutting off keep your hand there and wait a few minutes, see if there is a clicking noise coming from the compressor. This is just a start, but you said it has been off for a while so my first suspect is a compressor. Do these things and let me know for a follow up.

FREEZER quits working and if you unplug it and plug it back in will start working and work for weeks and may quit again.

If it has the control board on the door, they have been known to do that, it pressed/snapped into the door. If not and it has a manual ,standard knob on the inside, thermostat , slowly turn it back and forth to hear the clicking of the control which should start and stop the operation. If this is a self defrosting freezer and has the thermostat it also has a defrost timer that like a alarm clock shuts the unit on and off for 20 min intervals every 6 to 8 hours, this part has a little motor on it that overheats. You will be able to physically see oil comming out of it, or noisy ticking/ humming and very hot to the touch. Replace these parts and it should repair it. Good luck

Ice forming at bottom of Daewoo freezer. How do I fix this

Look on the back of the unit for a plastic hose coming out the bottom to a drain pan usually sat on top of the compressor. Bend a straw and push up inside. If it won;t go, there is a blockage, usually ice in the drain. Fully defrost the freezer and blow through the straw until clear.

I have a kenomore freezer model 19502

In a situation like yours, the freezer comes with a 1 year warranty covering all parts and labor from the manufacturer. On the machine where the model and serial nimber are located there is also a nunmber to call for service. If you can't find the number google the number to whirlpool, who makes kenmore.

You have a problem with the ADC.

Frigidaire has also jumped into the market with an adaptive defrost board. The fresh food section light switch and light bulb must work. To initiate a defrost cycle, open the door and push the light switch in and out 5 times within 6 seconds. The compressor and fans should shut off and the defrost heater should come on. Open the door and push the light switch in and out 5 times within 6 seconds to remove the refrigerator from the defrost mode and back into a cooling mode.

This product comes equipped with an Adaptive Defrost Control (ADC). To activate manual defrost, press and hold the Freezer temperature UP (WARMER) key while pressing the Fresh Food temperature DOWN (COLDER) key 5 times within 6 seconds. A "d" in the freezer temperature window and "F" in the refrigerator temperature window will display when the heater is activated. To deactivate manual defrost, press and hold Freezer temperature UP (WARMER) key while pressing the Fresh Food temperature DOWN (COLDER) key 5 times within 6 seconds. "d" and "F" will be displayed until the defrost cycle is complete. (approx. 8 minutes)
