Question about Summit Commercial 7.50 cu. ft. / 212 liter Chest Freezer FCL88
We have a chest freezer for frosted mugs and martini glasses. It stopped working so I unplugged it and took the back panel off. The main red power wire running into the condenser was disconnected and looked like it was melted a little. I figured it got wet and arched itself out. I respliced the wire and plugged the freezer back in. It was running the condenser kicked on and the fan was spinning. I let it sit for 3 hours and when I came back still not cold. Nothing just running and the inside was about room temp. I tryed to adjust the temp to a higher temp but still nothing. I was wondering if there is an easy way to fix the problem or somewhere I can go to get a manual to should me how to trouble shoot the problem myself. We have had it worked on three times so everything inside is new. The arch would have caused the p[ower failure to the condenser stopping the freezing but what could be wrong now.
I would think that the reason the red power wire melted, was because of high amperage, not getting wet. After you replaced it the condenser fan came on, but did the compressor? It may have went out before and that's what caused the bad wire. If you have a volt/ohm meter I can help you check it out.
