Question about Kenmore 12.8 cu. ft. / 362 liter Chest Freezer 13312
The reed valve in the compressor has failed, or the dryer unit is bloked. if you can access the rear of the freezer, with power off, tap the compressor gently with a solid object (hammer), then start the unit, also, if you see the copper tubes near the compressor, you will notice one of the tubes feeds into a copper barrel object about 3-4 inches long, it will have a fine copper tube comming out at the other end about 3mm thick, with the unit on, tap this object with the back of a bread and butter knife a few times with about the same force as to open a nut ( A good tap). Should do the trick if the unit is repairable.
Hope that helps, dont forget to vote and get back to me for further solutions if this fails..Russ
