Haier 5.3 Cu ft Chest freezer. power is on but compressor doesn't run. There is click sound but nothing happens after.


The click sound is the compressor starter relay closing but if nothing further happens it is likely that there has been a compressor failure

Ice build up in our chest freezer in back corner over compressor


Is the ice actually on the compressor. Have you defrosted it lately. You may find a drain stopped up. This can occur when debris collects in it.

The freezer won't run so how us it that the compressor is very hot after several hours?


ice cream is always the last to freeze and a temp of minus -10 degrees is usually required to get it to get hard. if you put the ice cream in the door it will be especially tough to freeze. a good thermometor is a good investment as you can observe the temps. usually ten degrees or 20 degrees is what they run. yes they do cycle on and off as long as they hold temps thats good. the outside of the freezer gets warm because the hot compressed refrigerant is spread through piping near its surface giving up its heat of compression . setting the stat to max will freeze the ice cream eventually but utility bill suffers . good luck

Whirlpool Chest Freezer Not Cooling Properly After Brown Out


work should be performed by a qualified service technician. verify that there is proper voltage at the wall outlet using a voltage meter. if it is ok check for voltage to the compressor relay. if it is ok unplug the freezer and check for continuity at the start relay and overload. if it is open you have a relay or overload. if it is ok check for the ohms rating at the compressor. common to start/common to run, start to run should be the total of both. also start/run to ground if any of these are open you have a system problem.

Lost manual and need to defrost


This is likely a manual defrost freezer, which means you have to remove the food, unplug the unit, and let the ice melt on its own. Do not, and i repeat, DO NOT poke the ice away from the walls. I guarantee if you poke the ice away from the wall, you'll poke a hole in the wall, and force yourself to buy a new freezer.

SLOWER IS SAFER. put some boiling water, in the pot, inside the freezer, or use a hair dryer.

Danby 3.6 cu.ft. freezer is not freezing


the best is to check the wires at the compressor start device to make sure it has 120v and if it does the compressor is bad and if it doesn't the replace the themostat.

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.
