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.

Danby DUF408WE Upright Freezer not working


Does the compressor feel warm to the touch. If it does, it will be proof that the thermostat is calling for cooling and is probably good. For the obvious questions: Is the freezer in an area below 80 degrees F, is the wall outlet in good shape and not hot to the touch, is the freezer plug not blistered around the prongs, is the door gasket against the face all the way around the mating surface on the chasis. If the compressor is hot, listen for a click every 2 to 5 minutes. If the click is present the starter is your last best hope. The click is the compressor trying to start. Without the proper tools you are pretty much up against a wall. One last suggestion is to check for loose wires under the compressor terminal cover. I would suggest you look up the compressor manufacturer for a visual on cover removal. Dont forget to unplug before attempting compressor cover work. I hope you havent tried to put screws through the outside walls of this freezer or damaged the shelves inside. Both are fatal for the freezer and no repair can be made. Good luck.

Hums seconds only does not freeze


If it hums then quits and hums and quits and just keeps doing this then either the compressor start relay is burned out or the compressor is seized. Unless you are capable of diagnosing this you should have a tech check it out. If it's just a relay they are relatively cheap, but if it's the compressor it could cost more than the freezer is worth.

Not getting cold enough on the inside... the exterior too hot to touch.. why could this be?


Compressor relay could be fried. Feel the compressor. If it is too hot to touch then check your relay. The relays contacts could be welded together making bot windings stay powered up and overheating the compressor causing compressor shutdown on overload.

My freezer is working fine, but my compressor is hot to the touch. Is the compressor too hot? I have converted my freezer to a kegerator with a temp. regulator. I do not want to burn my house down or...


the compressor will run hot,but you should be able to touch it without burning yourself.(when you compress a gas, heat is generated as it turns to liquid and when it expands back to a gas it absorbs heat,the principal of a fridge...)

Freezer attempts to start but after a few seconds trips out


There is a relay and protector, these are where the wires attach to the compressor,or rather how the power wires attach to the compressor.You can purchase a 3n1 start kit which has the instructions with it. Be sure to unplug the freezer before touching the wires or attempting to install replacement parts.

Freezer is not running even the power receptacle is working


there are no fuses on a domestic freezer that i have ever seen. there are no fans and there are no traditional freezer coils. so you have only a few things that could be going on. if the temp is way up the thermostat should sense hot and close and send power to the compressor and it should run. you can do one of two things . find the thermostat inside the freezer usually . gently remove cover and check incoming terminal and outgoing terminal. if you show 120 volts its open and the stats bad. if you don't show 120 volts between terminal connections then its closed and the compressor is failing to start. if power is coming into the stat when checked to ground then go to compressor and see if there are starting components . they are a start capacitor and a START RELAY AND PERHAPS A OVER LOAD . SEE IF POWER IS ARRIVING AT THE COMPRESSOR. IF SO CHECK THE MICROFARED OUTPUT OF THEcapacitor . you need within 10 percent of the rated value. also you can gently remove the overload , a little plastic disc and look on the bottom side and see if its cracked or burned looking. an amp probe on the compressor will tell you what amps it pulls if it trys to fire up . 6 to 10 is good 30 to 50 is mechanically locked up and then the overload trips. if compressor is ice cold to touch then your not getting power to the compressor and its not trying to run. if its hot to the touch thens its trying but start caps weak , or its locked up. most domestic freezers are not worth the cost of a new compresssor anymore. good luck

My compressor keeps kickn out, freezor will get warm


If you are fortunate, it seems to be the relay/overload assembly. On these units as the relay starts to fail the unit can run awhile and the relay gets hot. Remember that in the relay it is just two metals making and breaking that make the unit start. After awhile these wear out and the indication before complete failure is what you have. There is an outside chance the comprressor is failing. But try the relay first.
