Re: My 3 glass doors cooler
There are generally 2 reasons why this would happen. The defrost timer or heater has gone bad. Or, the fan is not working. Because you state that it runs all day long, I would think that the coils are now a block of ice and cannot cool. In any case, manually defrost it now. Turn off the power and use a hair drier on low (not hot) setting. This should fix the electrical cost for now. Then you can determine if the fan is running properly, or the defroster.

Clicking like this is usually a problem with the compressor start device. They are prone to failing and the overload protector is cycling to hopefully protect the compressor from burning out. If the start device is a solid state device if you remove it from the compressor it should not rattle. If it does it is bad and will need to be replaced. Installing a new strat device should get it back up and running.
If the thermostat will let you set that high of a temp, you probably could use it. Let me give you a few things to think about.
At higher temps, the refrigerant pressures could cause the compressor to work harder which would shorten the life.
The unit will also have shorter run cycles which could over work the compressor.
Shorter run times will affect the humidity of the conditioned space. Bad thing if you have fruits and veggies in there.
You will have to eliminate the defrost cycles. No need to have "Forced" defrost at cooler temps.
I am not a big fan of using equipment for things other than what it was designed for.
So, you can try it and keep an eye on how it performs.
Good luck and hope this is of some help.
to do it right, you gotta get technical. Need to know the BTU rating of the evap coil. Then match the compressor/ condenser coil and the expansion device to the same BTU rating. Can prove to be somewhat expensive. Your unit probably has a 3/4 h.p. compressor. This is pretty big for a 2 door unit. Probably too big, but again, gotta get the technical on all that stuff.
From what I can gather, you have a self defrosting freezer and the "motor" you speak of is the fan inside the freezer. If this is correct, do this:
Unplug freezer. Unload all food into coolers or other freezer space. Leave freezer door open for a day to allow it to manually defrost. Plug freezer back in after minimum 24 hours and confirm fan running and cooling before loading back up with food.
