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

I need to know what size power inverter in watts and if they come with a car lighter plug


You won't do it. An inverter will keep a compressor running at maybe 200 or 300 watts but it won't start it up.

My true freezer won't defrost?


Check the defrost timer (in the base, circular knob you can turn till it clicks) If it doesn't heat up rapidly in the evaporator, there is a safety overheat device (thermistor) that may be cutting power to the heater, or there may be a fault with the heater itself. Are you sure the fans are working, and the condenser grill is nice and clean?

Turn it round and check the electrics for the compressor are dry. You probably flooded them when defrosting and may have shorted something. If it still won't start with everything dried out, call a fridge technician

I have a deep freezer,the light is on but doesn't freeze. It's only 2 yrs old what could be the problem?I unpluged it and waited 10 mins pluged back in and nothing the red light stayed on but...


Well a freezer is easy to repair. The circuit goes from one side of the power cord to the cold control and down to the compressor then out to the other side of the power cord. Id the control or compressor relay is open then she won't freeze. All the parts to it are listed HERE.
From the list I see an overload for the compressor. If that one is open it won't freeze. Bypass the temp control wires to see if she runs.

I have this majic chef freezer about 7 cubic ft. 3 years old turned it off to defrost and when turning it back on it won't get cold?? Compresser is hot so I believe it is working and lights on in front...


I'd let it dry out totally then try it again, some of the electronics may have gotten wet when you defrosted it. Give it a week somewhere warm and dry like a garage. If you didn't attack built up ice in the freezer with a knife while defrosting it it should work after it dries out. Most people end up killing freezers by accidently poking holes in the evap coil while trying to remove built up ice.

Got home from vacation to a freezer full of food that seemed to be 'soft'....power did go out while away but was up when we got home. I can hear the freezer working but the food is not doing so good!


you dont say how long the power was off but if food went soft, chuck it,or cook the meat and then refreeze it,everything else is spoilt and will last no more than a month tops....from startup the freezer will take about 24hours to get cold(-18C)
