Well I fear that plugging it into that "The outlet I had it plugged into made the light very bright" (sic) outlet, may very well caused an Over Voltage, situation. This wouldn't hurt the "Bulb" but would undoubtedly, ruin all the internal delicate Electronics.

Above is a generic Service manual, this will help you troubleshoot.
However I expect, that a considerable amount of damage will have been done. In my professional opinion, I think you should, call a Kenmore, service center, and inquire, with respect to a repair.
So I know this will be controversial, and you will SELDOM hear me say this, but my PRACTICAL advice is this: if you have a problem that you think you've traced to the electronic controls in a machine, call a professional service technician to fix it. Since they can get a volume discount on the part, it will PROBABLY end up costing you not much more than trying to do it yourself.

My upright Frigidaire freezer stopped running. I have checked the outlet and it functions just fine. The light doesn't come on, no controls work makes no noises. Acts like there is no power to...


Hello Ed Greene, thank you for your inquiry!

I see that your Frigidaire freezer is not operating. You explained that the outlet is working and the lights or controls are non-operational. It sounds like a potential issue with the power cord or control panel within your freezer. It would be best to have a technician come out to the home to review the freezer to diagnosis the correct problem and replace parts as necessary. This will help avoid any unnecessary part purchases. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

Compressor wont start up fan in freezer stays on


        • Pull the fridge out from the wall and check to make sure it is plugged in.
        • Unplug the fridge and plug in a spare appliance to see if the outlet is working. Check the circuit breaker to the house see If the outlet is not working to see if there are any fuses that are flipped.Inspect the electrical cord for the refrigerator for damage, such as from a mouse or pet chewing on it.
    • Open the fridge to see if the light turns on. The power to the unit is fine if the light turns on, which means something else is the cause of the starting issue.
    • Turn up the thermostat on the inside of the fridge if it is set to a low setting. Turn it all the way up and listen for the condenser motor to start. Have the unit serviced by a professional if it does not May be internal problem with component

Frigidaire upright freezer: freezer stopped working (no power).


Hi Kevin - it sounds like your freezer may possibly be stuck in diagnostic mode. Press and hold the Up (+) and Down (-) keys simultaneously for 3 seconds or more. The buzzer will beep at the end of the 3 seconds. Hopefully that will resolve the issue.If you continue experiencing this problem, please provide a model number to your freezer and any additional symptoms it may have experienced prior to shut off. - Best of luck!

My GE freezer stopped cooling. I turned it off,


Hi
I think the problem you are experiencing might be due to the temperature control.
1. Check if the temperature control is off if you dont hear the freezer operating.

2.If you do not see an interior light,when you open the door,then make sure the freezer is properly plugged into an electrical outlet.

3.Move the temperature level to a colder level if the freezer is not cold enough.Warm weather can also be a factor.

4.Find the condenser and check to see if it needs to be cleaned. The condenser is located behind the decorative paneling at the bottom of the freezer.

5.If it doesnt work still then contact a technician.
GOODLUCK

Hi!!

Did you plugg unit back to the wall outlet?? Is that outlet working??? Did the plug got damaged when disconnected?? Check unit's power cable for continuity. Check freezer temp. controls.

You can plug and unplug your unit as many times as you want an you should not have any problems.. Check the above mentioned items, I think it is where your problem resides.

Sounds like you have one of those outlets that trip when they're overloaded. Those type don't work well with a big appliance like a freezer. Try a regular socket.

Freezer Just Stop Working


You should not run your freezer from a strip plug, only from a wall outlet. It is OK for a small spark to occur since the freezer is trying to start the compressor as you plug it in. If there is a big spark that kicks out the circuit breaker if you plug it into a wall socket, then there is a short in the compressor or light circuit in the freezer. A strip plug in probably will not have the capacity to run the freezer. Plug it into the wall socket and try that. If you have a circuit breaker kick out, then it's your appliance. Hope this helps you, Rick
