Not good news. sounds like the compressor overcurrent protection device is operating . This suggests that a. compressor is siezed or b . If the compressor has a capacitor to aid starting , this could be u/s. If the latter then this could be replaced at a fraction of the cost of new comp. orst case the compressor is u/s.

I have an 11 cf upright freezer. it has been running most of the time or at least make a noise. and I just defrosted it. and its still doing the same thing. any comments?


Good Afternoon friend, thank you for your post!

I see that your Frigidaire freezer is making noise and you have recently defrosted it, but your freezer is still making the noise. Your freezer will make certain noises which are normal operating noises for the freezer.

The compressor is a high efficiency so you may hear it during start up and while running. Additionally, refrigerant circulating through your freezer can make a tapping sound or even a gurgling noise. I hope this has been helpful. -Matt

My upright freezer is not kicking on ...


There's a current relay starting circuit on top of the compressor. There's also a run capacitor nearby. I assume you have a meter (you said you tested the compressor). Either component malfunction will prevent operation, but if you hear a clicking noise at the compressor, then most likely the whole assembly (plastic box with relay and fuse) where the wires attach to the compressor has to be replaced. It runs less than $50. Buy it online from the manufacturer's parts house, This is a common problem with domestic refrigerators and freezers.

Kenmore 7.5 freezer stopped working.


Thanks for all the suggestions. I just replaced the overload relay and it does the same thing. Runs for a few seconds and the loud click from overload relay. I did notice the relay is really hot to the touch, if that matters.Coils on back are clean. I had noticed the last few months that the inside coils were frosting up quite a bit.Really had hoped it was the relay.

I have a Frigidaire freezer LFFU1424DW not freezing. Came home to melting ice and thawed food. I heard clicking noise like a fan but goes off after a few seconds. Help please.


first of all unplug that freezer and wait for 15 mins. move it five feet from the wall. after 15mins, plug it back and kick in compressor at the same time!!!! remember plug and kick at the same time. the ckicking noise come from the starting relais. this says that the compressor has a problem. If it doesn't work ; you will have to call a service person who will replace the compressor for you.

The motor in my freezer makes a very loud noise and sounds like it is trying to start, it takes a few seconds before it stops the noise, then starts running the freezer.


That's usually mounts inside the compressor. It could still last awhile so if you can put up with the noise just wait for it to quit before replacing the compressor or getting a new fridge.

Relay on Frigidaire Freezer


Problem resolved. I removed the relay, cleaned the contact, and reassembled the unit. The compressor fired right up. I found another resource which explained how to verify that the relay was operating correctly. Thanks.

Buzzing compressor


heres a part number for the overload relay assy 5304468029.. its mounted on the side of compressor. its a tricky one, usually my experience has been the noise comes from a bad compressor( which you should have 5 year full warr from manufacture). sometimes the overload relay does go bad preventing compressor from starting,the n ew compressor will come with a new overload relay

Kenmore Upright Freezer Works Sometime


try a new start relay and overload kit specifically for the make and model freezer you are working on. if compressor can be seen ,the numbers on it can be used to get correct oem start cap, relay ,and overload. if your unit is having starting problems that will usually fix it. if however, the stat is failing to bring it on a new stat is called for. but it sounds like it is having starting problems since you said it was off a long while then still struggled on the overload to start then finally did. if the new start components don't work then new freezer time. compressor replacement is to expensive anymore. good luck
