Good day,
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.

    After seeing your other posts, timers can simply stop running, and if in the defrost mode, the machine will not run.
    On occasion the timer contacts themselves will burn out, thus the advancing the timer solution usually works, but not always.

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.

    So you didn't hear any click when you tried to turn it on. Sounds like it's a compressor gone bad.

    part 29 on this diagram is your compressor. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partse...

    If the click your heard came from the starter relay then that part may be the problem. Part 30 on the diagram. . 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.

Hi there,

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.........

Good Luck!!

Thanks

If your unit has a defrost timer, and you don't see it at one of the back corners, then it will be hidden behind the front kick plate either on the left or right corners.

Freezer defrost cycle


If the defrost timer sticks in the defrost mode,yes. Normal defrost time is 30 minutes or less depending upon which timer is installed.
If it happens again,locate the defrost timer and turn the dial manually to see if the compressor comes back on. If so,replace the timer.
It is probably on the rear near the compressor. Some are under the front behind the dust guard.

I have a frigidaire freezer upright model#ffu20f9gw3


Without any additional info, there are a lot of possibilities:
1. Condenser coil (underneath unit) is dirty and clogged.
2. Compressor is failing. (need A/C tech)
3. Metering device is clogged. (need A/C tech)
4. Refrigerant charge is low. (need A/C tech)
5. Door seal is broken (frost will form around door).
6. Defrost heaters are stuck on (replace defrost timer located underneath unit at front).
7. Condenser fan has failed (underneath freezer on back).
8. Evaporator fan (inside fan) has failed (ice will form on cooling coil).

This should get you started...

If this helps you, please select YES to the first two ratings questions. Thank you, and Good Luck.

Upright frigidaire freezer not running properly


Sounds like your defrost timer has packed it in you need to fit another timer to it and everything will be as good as new.
by turning the timer you have forced it to run nothing to worry about. It has just stopped in the defrost position. What you have done is the first diagnostic test a tech would have performed. I hope this has helped you out.

Sounds like the timer could be getting stuck and not releasing the defrost cycle. If you have to do it again, you should have the timer checked, or just replace it.

Timer is before the power to the compressor and overload protector and is unrelated with the exception that the power passes through the timer to the thermostat and then to the compressor. Power at the compressor indicates that the timer is supplying the power. The gears in the timer turn one cycle every 8 to 12 hours depending on the model of the timer.
