First check to make sure you have 120 volts to the unit. If you have power to the unit you then need to check the temperature control to see if it works(closes) and gives 120 volts to the compressor. Does the compressor make any noise like it is running and does the compressor get warm or very hot. Try this first.

Compressor runs but fans dont.

If the compressor is running and pumping with no heat produced, you have lost refrigerant.. Most modern freezers have a controlled fan so the coil can freeze before the fan starts.

Chest freezer power light on, run light off and all my food is defrosted. How do I fix it

Take off the service panel and check for the compressor running. Can you place your hand on
it or is it too hot. If it is you might change the relay to the compressor.Take your model no. to your local parts store and they will help you look at the part and exactly where it is located (on the compressor) Easy change out.
If the compressor is not running at all then remove the two wires to the thermostat and plug them
together (They will plug together if you turn one backwards and plug it into the other.)
Make sure you have unplugged the freezer while you are doing this.
Now you have routed around the thermostat.
If it runs then replace the thermostat and youre done!
If not after the relay and thermostat check it wont run then you have a bad compressor.
On the relay ask for a hard start relay for a freezer or ref. at the parts store. They know exactly
what it is. Its even easier to install. Don't be shy to repair this. You can do it or condemn it
Thank you for using fixya

Freezer tempreture drop to -38F even when is set to #3

does the compressor ever stop running? If not, the trouble is in the controls. If it does, the temperature sensor is probably bad. Start there and let me know if I can be of further help.

Can I plug my freezer into a surge protector

i know where your going and its a good thought
read your compressor, it will label the start up amp,
it may even be on the model label
it will give you the rated amps and the start up amps
this is current draw to run
as well as start up a stopped motor
depending on the age
most units use about
short of that use a 3x method
if it has the run amp x3 is startup
then read your surge protector if its rated higher than the amps needed to start the unit
then you should be fine
i will say most SP are rated at 15amps
my freezer is rated at 18amperes

Unit shutting down and temp riseing to 100 degree

If the start relay and cap are ok then I'd say it's time for a new compressor. Have you tried running the compressor directly with a direct start circuit? cheers

Freezer stopped working

A no power to the compressor is a good sign as far as being repairable is concerned. Locate the temperature control. Unplug the freezer and jumper the two main wires that connect to the control. Plug it in and if the unit runs replace the thermostat.
