If the freezer was working fine before sitting for a while then you should replace the starting capacitor first.

If not work then other possible faults is leak of refrigerant. Loss of the refrigerant charge will also cause the compressor to overheat. It is the cool return gas coming back to the compressor that helps to keep it from overheating.
There are also many other things that can go wrong with your fridge and I have not come close to exhausting the possibilities here. I have just touched on the most common problems in a very basic way.
There are some basic trouble shooting things that can be done very easily. Most problems are above out of the range of comfort for many homeowners and professional help should be consulted before any attempt is made at repairs. Remember also, that the release of refrigerant gases into the atmosphere is a federal offense in the US. Proper care must always be taken to minimize the release of any gases. A license is also required to handle refrigerants. Make sure that the professional you call has the proper certifications to handle refrigerants properly

Your light switch is white generally around frame... As for door heater it will be on as soon as you plug unit it. You can feel around door jam to see if heating... Should be warm not scalding hot. McCall was sold to manitowoc and some parts are no longer available. If you're able to do repair yourself try case parts.

Mccall FS10-E freezer has been sitting unplugged for two years and now won't cool (I believe it worked before but not 100% sure). When plugged in, there is a constant buzzing from the fan motor. ...


Here are a few thoughts.

Possible a very small freon leak. A low level of freon will cause a "No Cooling" situation.
There is a small possibility that since it sat for so long, that the rings on the compressor may not be sealing properly and the compressor is now "Weak" and does not have the capacity it needs to do the job.
Buzzing from what fan motor? Evap or condenser? If the motor buzzes but runs in the correct direction (rotation) and at the correct RPM. I would not be too concerned about the noise at this time.
I'd start with these items before going any farther.
Let me know if I can be of any further help.

McCall freezer installed 8 yrs ago in remote area 90 miles from nearest tech. Compressor was remoted to basement. Freezer has never cooled to less than 10F--in red arc. Now won't cool less than 30F. ...


If the condenser coil is clean and the unit is in an area where the ambient temp. is 80 degrees or less, it is most likely a refrigerant problem. Probably low and has a leak. Another issue could be that the line sizes for the distance the refrigerant has to travel, may be wrong. Since I don't know the distance, you may need to have that checked into also. You should not have more than a 1-2 psi drop due to line size and distance traveled.

Working on a t49 freezer it wont go below 30 , change compressor couple months a go worked fine. Now i change dry and regas with 22oz 404 and wont go down , my high side is 200 my low side is 18 . clean...


Sounds like a restriction to me.
Recover the charge.
Pressurize the system with 350 pounds of nitrogen pressure through the high side.
Leave it pressurized for 15 minutes.
Release the pressure through the low side.
Replace the filter drier again.
Pull a 2 hour vacuum on high and low side.
Recharge liquid refrigerant on the high side.
Let the system sit idle for 30 minutes before starting.
Check the evaporator fan motor as well as the coils. Use a good coil cleaner on the e-coil.

How to move a whirlpool freezer on its side


You can lay the freezer on its side to move. If it is on its side for over 30 Min's though you will need to stand it up for 24 hrs before you plug it back in to the power. You need to do this so the freon settles back to the compressor.

It is always best to move them standing up.

Freezer runs for 2 seconds then stops, and runs this cycle.


Good day,
The shut off is due to the protective overload mounted on the side of the compressor to shut it down, if it can't start.
On the side of the compressor is a cover box that contains the overload device, a start relay, and on some models, a start/run capacitor.
These items can to a degree tested with an ohm meter, but it is wiser to take them to an appliance parts house for testing.
If any are found defective, replace them. If not, the compressor has failed internally and needs to be replaced. Close to $400.00 if not more.

Need to know the design superheat also normal pressures on this unit with 404A refrigerant


The McCall web site has nothing easily found on the 7-7045FT unit.
In answer to you questions, first, what is the expansion device. TXV, Cap Tube, or something else?
Low site pressure will be dictated by the super heat. The high side, in many cases, is usually ambient plus 30, then convert to psi.

Let me know if you need more info. And please double check the model number/ serial numbers.

good luck
