Sounds like the cold control has stuck . Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
The cold control is the knob in the ref that turns it on and off and has numbers on it.
If it runs then that cold control is the problem.
If this doesn't work Do this

That is probably the compressor relay or cold control (Thermostat
The relay is on the compressor and needs replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
also try hooking the two wires together on the cold control to route around the cold control.

Thank you for using fixya

The problem you face is during the defrost period. Now one posibility is that the temperature during this period is increasing higher than the set one and this mean the defrost sensor need to be replaced or the complete thermostat is the problem thus you need a new one.
The second opion is again due to the themostat mulfaction with sensor the tempreruture that it reads is wrong so it need again anew thermostat.
However if you need a practical solution to temorary solved the bazzer problem and since the cooler temeprature is ok and it cools normal then you have one option to just desconect-cut the one of the two wires going to the alarm buzzeer thus with this the buzzer will mute. However in this case you should check often the temperatures visualy since now you will not have any alarm.

Hi Nick

Try this link the guys should be able to supply the spares, but you may have to buy locks and keys unless you have the key numbers, the numbers are sometimes on the face of the lock in tiny figures, but I can't promise they will be there


Hope this helps

How did you determine this ?

Franklin... | Answered on Nov 03, 2010

Allow it to work for some more time 2 hours and if there is no cooling at all, then your compressor needs a check. If the set is old can the gas have leaked off.?
These two factors must be checked out , the compressor and gas..

I wanted to Share Some Details with you :-

1. Usually Every Manufacturer do have a 1 Year Warranty on most Components.

2. The Manufacturer, already Filed for Bankruptcy

Read :-

Franklin Industries,. L.L.C. designs, makes, and distributes equipment for food and beverage preparation, preservation, and enjoyment. It offers ice machines, wine cellars, compact and specialty refrigerators, outdoor refrigeration, commercial conveyors, toasters, rotisserie ovens, and kitchen electrics. The company was founded in 1995 and is based in Brooklyn, New York. On September 11, 2009, Franklin Industries, L.L.C. filed a voluntary petition for reorganization under Chapter 11 in the US Bankruptcy Court for Eastern District of New York, Brooklyn.

Address Was :-

4100 First Avenue
Brooklyn, NY 11232-3321
United States
Founded in 1995

3. As the Company was Not a Branded and it was already Closed, the ONLY Option would be to Look for a Local Repairer who could Fix this at a Good Price.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
