Chest Freezer doesn't get cold

I checked the compressor and it is running but isn't cold at all. Checked the R132 and the level is fine. Is the compressor Bad? I was thinking it may be running but not compressing. Worked fine when unplugged and when put back into service about a month later started this.

    Yes the unit had been moved by "professional" movers. How do I know if the compressor is working correctly. As I said, it is running. I checked the pressure and it is not low on freon. So I hace to assume the compressor is running but not compressing?

Was this unit placed on its side or back? This can cause oil to get where it shouldn't and block freon flow. If the unit has not been moved this is not an issue. Could be the compressor but sounds more like low freon level. Most leaks happen when units are turned off for long periods. I don't ever believe in charging a deep freeze unless you can positively say you have found and fixed the leak. You can never really trust it again and the food inside is usually worth more than the freezer.

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!

I have deep freezer chest that does not freeze but when you plug it in you can hear it click on but will not get cold at all has been unplugged for a few years but stored in a dry building


If it doesn't get cold at all, then your compressor is not running. Which could be the start relay or start capacitor or even the compressor. The relay and capacitor are not that expensive and pretty easy to replace, but if it is the compressor then you might not want to put that much money into an older unit.

Compressor runs but freezer not getting cold


Have the gas checked. If the thermostat pick-up is frozen over that could result in the contents of the freezer not getting cold, but for that there would have to be a build up of ice on the sides of the freezer.

Maytag chest freezer mac1557aew does not get cold


This can be a number of things, one being a bad compressor/motor.
Does it run at all?
If not, the compressor needs to be looked at.
If you are handy, there may be a wiring schematic in the back to further troubleshoot.
You can trace the wiring from the thermostat to see if there is power at other components.

Kenmore 23.1 cf Chest Freezer not cooling below 14F


Make sure everything is working, I.E. compressor, fans. Now I need to know if the freezer shuts off at 14 degrees, or does it continue to run without making temp. If it shuts off, then the first place to look is the thermostat. It may be out of calibration. If it continues to run, then the solution may be as simple as cleaning the condenser coil. or the defrost has malfunctioned somehow. Defrost probleams will cause excess ice on the inside coil. You may need to remove the panels to see how much ice is on it. It sounds like the compressor is good, as it is pretty cold. Just not cold enough. A deep freeze should be at least 0.
