My frige stops working after 3 days of running


What does the timer power? If it's a heater that defrosts the coil, check that.

I cleaned my freezer and now it won't freeze


When you say "cleaned", did you defrost it? And. if so, could you have damaged the internal lining? Often the coil inside the wall of a chest freezer can fracture if hit or stabbed at during defrosting.
Other than that, is the compressor running (you would hear it)? it may have overheated. If not running, see if it feels hot (siezed) or cold (no power from thermostat). If cold, put it on fast freeze and see if it kicks into life (thermostat faulty) or not (compressor fault, time for a new freezer!)
Let me know how you get on!

Only 6 months, have to defrost.


However this will take long so you use a straight screwdriver or something like a chisel to remove as much scale as possible before leave it in solutions.

The ice build up is related from the time keep the door open and the humidity that is in the air. So the time is variable. Sometimes if the door is not sealed closed the ice is build up very fast.

Yesterday, my dad brought me a working GE upright freezer from his house, transport time about 45 minutes. The freezer was working fine before he left his house, he did tip it little bit to load, unload...


You should try to un-plug the freezer and let it stand up-right over night to re-settle the freon back down inside of the compressor.

The compressor should normally get hot if it is doing it's job right, and there is a starter for the compressor motor (usually it looks like a large capacitor) that could have failed, or the defrost timer (if it has one) could be stuck, and you should be able to see the small dial on the defrost timer slowly turning, and if it does not turn, then replace the defrost timer.

My freezer has gone into what seems to be a defrost cycle but is on day 4. Is this normal? It is staying at 0.2 degrees C


This freezer has a manual defrost control on it, comes this way. Also has defrost drain hose in the front with a wrap around evaporator and condenser coil. A unit should only defrost for about 45 minutes to remove any build up, 4 days indicates it is stuck in defrost. It doesn't show the cross over temp to F from C on my chart at 0.2 degrees. You should have a defrost control that you are able to put into defrost your self. Look around the back or anywhere there may be a removable panel or it should show you where to put this box into defrost since it is manual and not automatic.Give it a turn in the direction and watch to see what happens. It may go into defrost again and come back out on its own and freeze properly. If it continues to stay in defrost, you will need to replace this timer. Take all of the info and pick one up at a appliance parts house that will stock it. Draw you a diagram so you dont forget how you removed it and that will make it much easier to install. I will also send you a link about this freezer next. It will be coming to you after you get this. Keep me posted.

General electric 5.0 chest freezer has water coming all over the floor.


The reason this happens is because the defrost timer is not turning back on when it needs to, causing the freezer to thou out and overfill the drip tray sitting on top of the compressor. A new defrost timer should be available from the local refrigeration wholesalers in your area.

GE Freezer Not Freezing


I am not an expert, but if the defrost heater is not working, then maybe when it was unpluged the coils didn't completly unthaw. If not, the freezer still will not cool properly.
