Chest Freezer Model # 253.9138583 will not run. When I turn it on, I hear a click then slight hum then click and no hum. Is it the compressor or possibly compressor starter?

Haier 5.3 Cu ft Chest freezer. power is on but compressor doesn't run. There is click sound but nothing happens after.


The click sound is the compressor starter relay closing but if nothing further happens it is likely that there has been a compressor failure

Chest freezer model mfco5mobw4 been plugg in for 2 days now set on the coldest setting not getting cold compressor is warm


God day,
Either the refrigerant has leaked out or the compressor isn't pumping properly. If you can put your ear up to the unit and it hums that is the compressor running.
No practical repair possible unless the unit is under 5 years of age in which case you are entitled to factory warranty service.

Freezer starts then stops


Either the start relay on the compressor is bad OR the compressor is bad.
Replace the start relay and find out which it is.
When you remove the relay you may see a burned spot on one or more of the relay terminals.
If so,it is definitely bad.

Won't turn on


To determine which component has failed please do the following.

Unplug the freezer wait 5 minutes and plug back in. Listen closely for any sounds by the compressor. If you hear a click or hum followed by a click the problem is the compressor and would cost about $400.00 to repair.

If you do not hear any sounds the problem is most likely the cold control or sometimes called the thermostat. The part number is WR09X10053 and is about $25.00
