Question about Frigidaire 13.7 cu. ft. / 388 liter Upright Freezer AFFU1466D
Two possibilities, as long as you are sure there is power to the unit, and it is turned on.
1. The timer. It can be tested by turning it's shaft clockwise, until the machine starts running. if no luck,
2. Unplug, and remove the thermostat. With it turned on, it should read zero ohms on an ohm meter. If it reads infinity, it is bad, and needs replaced.
The optional test, is to stick a made up jumper wire into the 2 wires that came off the thermostat, and plug in the machine.
I'm basing this on the fact that you mentioned a timer which would make it a frost free style.
If any questions please respond. Thank you.

Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start. Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. Place a probe on each terminal. The multitester should display a reading of zero ohms. If the overload protector does not pass this test, it should be replaced. If the defrost timer is stuck in defrost then the defrost heater should be on all the time. Heater is located behind the rear cover inside the freezer. If that is the problem. Turn the timer a till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=111193&diagram_id=334188#d334188 part 23 is your timer and part30 is your relay in this diagram. You can bypass the cold control (thermostat) to see it that is the problem. Just connect the two wires together instead of the control.

Well first of all you can check to see if the light comes on or if there is any fan, motor, or other sound coming from the appliance? If so, the refrigerator isn't really completely stopped--go to the specific problem you are having. If not, try adjusting the thermostat to a colder setting. If that doesn't work, read on.
Second, check to see if there is power getting to the refrigerator. To do that, plug a lamp or other device into the same outlet the refrigerator is plugged into. If there's no power, check the fuses or circuit breakers. If the fuses or breakers aren't the problem, contact a qualified electrician to restore power to the outlet. Please post comments if further you have the same problem.........
