Question about Kenmore Freezers
We have an older deep freeze in our garage. Two weeks ago our hot water heater went out and leaked all the water out in our garage. The water ran under the deep freeze. That afternoon while waiting on the plumber I notced the freezer sweating then opened it and it was starting to defrost. I assumed that the water that ran under it messed it up. I also noticed that it kept kicking on and then right back off again. I unplugged it and thought it needed to dry out underneath. I've plugged it back in and it is doing the same thing. The blower on the inside is going full blast but is warm now and it is still kicking on and off. Is it a total lost? My husband thinks it is gone. Any thoughts? Thanks!
The compressor relay is gone For a few dollors you can still save it.

Try taking a small piece of solid copper wire strand, loop over defrost heater and extend into drain hole, this is a trick we use to help with this issue by bringing a little heat around the hole. The freezer may be manufactured by Woods Inc, a canadian appliance builder. These did have lots of problems with the water building up between the inner and outer liners, Not much you can do with these either to totally resolve this issue. Make sure the water is going into the drain pan when you pour the hot water.

Might try unplugging for a few hours and then plug it back in. There is a possibility that it slugged the compressor and there is a restriction in the line. Sometimes when the compressor fails to stop running in cold air the liquid gets back to the compressor. It can cause a bit of gunk to be picked up out of the oil and carried to the expansion line and plug up the line. Maybe turning it off will let the plug fall free and not replug the line. Worth a try anyway.....

If it started to cool again the compressor was running. Check the condenser and make sure it is clean. Provide as much air movement through the garage as possible . 100 degrees is a high temperature to be operating a refrigerator in.
