Problem with hussmann chest freezer

The freezer cycles on for about 30 seconds and then off for several minutes and the pressure light comes on. I took the cover off of the back and noticed the fins where the coils are, are caked with dust. Is this causing the problem and if so, what is the best way to clean it?

The unit is probably clicking off on overload due to the dirty coil. Try brushing it off and hose it down or lightly blow it out with an air compressor or co2 if available. Be careful not to damage or bend the fins.

If the freezer is not located in an area where grease vapors are present the unit can be cleaned off using a vacuum cleaner. Then use a flash light to look through the coils. If you see dust embedded deep inside use a small air compressor to blow out the dust. Dirty condenser coils raise the pressures and temperatures in the system. Cleaning the coils and scheduling them to be clean at quarterly intervals should keep it functioning for a long time. Operating with a restricted condenser takes its tole on the compressor life span.

Hello,I defrosted my electrolux chest freezer and now problem is power is on but not freezing,alarm light keeps coming and keeps bleeping every 2 minutes and goes off and on


Is the compressor running? if it is running, but there is no cooling, it is time to buy a new freezer.
If the compressor is NOT running, I would suspect the compressor start relay.
How did you defrost it?

No check your settings. You may try to unplug it for about a minute and then restart. If that doesn't work, call the mfr. they should help since it is new.

I have a hussmann commercial freezer model GGSM-3 when I plug it in after like ten minutes it turns off and three seconds later it comes back on and kepps turning on and off what could be causing this...


Hi,
The freezer is low on freon... it is cutting in and out on low pressure. It does not for the first ten minutes because the temperatures are higher when it is warmer... then as the temps come down the pressures drop and the vicious cycle begins....
Double check the type freon that is in there before adding so you do not mix refrigerants...there are a few possibilities...depending on the age of the unit.

This is not a DIY project, make sure to have a licensed pro do this for you!!

Freezer chest compressor keeps cycling on and off every five/ten minutes continuously. Thought it should cycle every couple of hours.


Change the starting components (relay, overload, capacitor if so equipped)

Sounds like your freezer has lost its charge of refrigerant. That motor sound is the compressor. And the internal thermal overload is tripping it out every minute because refrigerant also cools the compressor motor. Have a licensed repairman find the leak, seal it,and recharge it with R134a refrigerant.

I have a hussmann g6f-8u and can't stop the ice from forming. what should the defrost be set on?


Most all freezers are set at a defrost of every 6 hours (4 times a day) and for about 25 to 30 minutes. This is a good starting point.
Be sure that the system is working right. If you are icing up, you may have other issues.

Hope this helps.

GE chest freeze won't get cold


the noise your hearing indicates the possibility of a bad start relay on the comp or possibly it just came loose during the move. on the side of the compressor you will see 2-3 wires running into an electrical connection reseat this first. if still no operation replace teh relay. you can purchase thru any reputable appliance parts dealer. after replacing the relay if you have no operation then likely problem is seized comp.
domestic freezers do not have low pressure switches that indicate low freon charge.
