Question about Danby 3.6 cu. ft. / 102 liter Chest Freezer Millenium DCF401W
I HAVE HAD THIS FREEZER FOR FOUR OR FIVE YEARS AND HAS WORKED GREAT UP UNTIL NOW. DO THESE FREEZERS HAVE TO BE RE-CHARGED OR MY GUESS WOULD BE THERE IS A RELAY THAT KICKS IT ON AND OFF THAT HAS GONE BAD. ANY ADVICE WOULD BE GOOD.
The easiest thing to try is to completely defrost the freezer by turning it off for at least 24 hours. Often, the coils freeze, and then you cannot get any cold air to freeze your food.
You could also download a manual and electrical schematic from the manufacturer's web site. Use a voltmeter to trace the power and find the problem.
Does the compressor motor still run? Can you hear the fan motor run while the compressor is running? Normally, it is not worth recharging the freon in a freezer. If the freon leaked out (not likely), then you need to repair the leak first. It ends up costing the same as getting a new freezer.
