Hi. You helped me with the washer machine a couple days ago and thanks a lot again. Do you know anything about upright freezers, specifically Frigidaire/Tappan freezers? If so the freezer isn't freezing anymore and we can't figure out what's wrong with it. Would it even be worth repairing? And the product line won't be correct because it won't recognize the product so I'll give it to you here.
Frigidaire 11.7 cu. Ft. upright freezer model # 4124305/TFU12M4AWO

Re: Got another question about a freezer
I have seen freezer stop working because the owner pulled it out to clean behind it and pushed it back into place too far. This "Chocked" the air flow around the condenser and caused the failure. Be sure condenser is clean and air can circulate. Older units have coils up the back and newer ones have them underneath and utilize a fan. You can use a vacuum on the the underneath ones. Be sure fan runs under there.

Obviously, the compressor is not running. Confirm the presence of power to the compressor itself. If it is getting power and unit does not run, you have an open motor winding OR if you have a start capacitor the latter could be defective. Let's hope that you have the capacitor because they go bad and are a lot cheaper to replace than the compressor!
Have him check the t'stat. And freon lines. I believe the t'stat is the problem. Are the door gaskets ok and does it seal properly when closed. The fan should always run, so this could be in the rewiring. I am assuming you will be working out of a freezer where the working temp is a little higher.

The compressor is overheating and not starting. Could be just the start relay. If this happens again try unplugging it for about an hour then it should work for a while. Heat between doors is normal this is an electric heater designed to keep the doors from sweating. You just noticed it because the refrigerator wasn't cold.
