Quit working -Haier Freezer

A few days ago my haier 5 cu ft freezer quit working, I didn't notice the it 3-11-08. The items were still cold on top but was mostly unthawed; the items in the bottom were still froze. Do you think it would be the capacitor? The freezer motor is not making any noise or sounds, I've plugged and unplugged several time to see if any changes. The model of the freezer is HCM050EB or BF0132E0100; had two model numbers. Got any Ideas?????

Thanks
Brenda

You have one of three issues here.
Either the thermostat has gone bad,
The thermal cutout has gone bad ontop of the compressor,
or the capacitor is out for the compressor.

Take an hom meter and check the thermal cutout, it should read 0 ohms or "continuity" if it doesnt the cutout is bad.

The only real way to check the cap is with a cap meter.

as for the thermostat check it with a n hom meter to make sure you have good connections internal the thermostat.

If you have any other questions just let me know!

I unplugged my chest freezer to clean it out, when I plugged it back in it won't get cold. It's in excellent condition. Never has it gave me a problem. It's approx. 5 years old. Ed V


Try turning the thermostat down to O and then back to max a few times this may free a stuck bimetallic strip. If this doesn't work and assuming you haven't damaged any components in some way then all that may be required is a new thermostat.

Have a 17 cu ft upright manual defrost freezer. Started to notice that items in door were soft a week ago. Warning light was on but the rest seemed ok. Today noticed a puddle from thawed meat. Sounds like...


Good day,
Serious problem. Either there is a freon leak or a restriction inside the tubing that carries the refrigerant.
Needs the attention of a pro.

Note. If the unit is under 5 years, leave it alone. It is still under factory warranty. Call for warranty service.

Is it normal for the freezer to go off periodically? It just seems to stop running and later it will start running again. I've had this freezer for 5 years and don't ever remeber this happening before.


By stop running do you mean become quiet or do you mean quit cooling and unthaw all the food?

If you mean turn off and still be cold then that is normal.

If you mean turn off and warm up that is not normal

Freezer not freezing food even at highest setting


If the unit is running continuously and not maintaining the temperature cold enough the system may have a leak. If it is NOT running continuously the problem could be in the temperature control.
