Your compressor start relay contacts may be getting loose or worn, resulting in a delayed start on the compressor.
If the start device includes a capacitor, it could be getting weak.
GFCI are not good receptacles for devices with high starting torque.

Most likely a short in the compressor electrical components (relay, overload,capacitor) Supco makes a 3 in 1 that you could use. If this works fine, if not "bad compressor".

This sounds like a bad overload relay or locked up compressor. If you are very technical, you can do some troubleshooting by checking to see if the compressor pulls "locked rotor" amps when it tries to start. This information should be on the unit nameplate and will be listed under "LRA". This requires special testing equipment (an amprobe). Also check for any bad connections at the plug and the terminals where the cord terminates inside the electrical compartment on the freezer.
Something else to try is to plug the freezer into a different electrical outlet and see if the same problem occurs.
If the freezer is over 15 years old and the compressor is bad, it will not be worth the cost of repairs.

Freezers and other big appliances don't do good on GFCI circuits. They pull too much voltage and amps. Try in on a regular plug and see how it does.
