The first thing to find out is what is running and what is not. If I am reading the specs on your unit right this is a frost free unit. There should be a fan inside behind the back wall.

Plug the freezer into a known good outlet and turn the dial up. If the fan comes on then go behind the freezer and down at the bottom is a compressor, you should be able to hear that running as it and fan should run together.

If they are running and no cooling takes place in 24 hours you have a problem in the sealed system, most likely the refrigerant has leaked out.

If nothing is running you have either:

- A bad thermostat, (the control behind the dial) It can be checked with an ohmmeter, with the power off and wires disconnected the meter should read 0 ohms when the dial is turned up

- A broken or chewed through wire (could be anywhere)

- A defrost timer that is stuck in defrost. It can be checked with an ohmmeter using a similar method as the thermostat.

Sorry this was not an easy answer

My true freezer model T-35F 3/4 HP start run


overamp condition. Sounds like the first place to look would be in the start components.
http://www.truemfg.com/pdf/InstallManuals/T-SERIES/t_series_english.pdf
check out this web site. It has your manual with trouble shooting guide. It also says to check start components. Don't get circuit breaker confused with unit overload. Overload is on the compressor.
Hope this gets ya going.

Freezer Problem


If it started to cool again the compressor was running. Check the condenser and make sure it is clean. Provide as much air movement through the garage as possible . 100 degrees is a high temperature to be operating a refrigerator in.
