There is a possible chance that your compressor unit is faulty. You could have a failed valve within the system, check for oil leak gas leak. if so you will need to refill oil/gas. However since you have not indicated the age of the freezer, if the unit is older than 6 years , I would recommend that a new compressor unit be fixed or you must consider after looking at the cost of this replacement for a new unit which would be more power efficient and carries along a warranty.
Hope this helps.Good day
God day, Either the refrigerant has leaked out or the compressor isn't pumping properly. If you can put your ear up to the unit and it hums that is the compressor running. No practical repair possible unless the unit is under 5 years of age in which case you are entitled to factory warranty service.
Good day, Could be a tstat, but the machine should be running extremely cold. Confused as to the age. You said it was 1 1/2 years old. If that is the case. the compressor,and all connecting tubing are under a 5 year factory warrant. You could replace the tstat, and if within a few days the problem isn't solved, then the rest of the serious problems are covered by factory warranty. Call your selling dealer for factory warranty service.
If the compressor actually runs for more than a second or two its likely the compressor is bad. Some models had a 5 year warranty and some ten years on the compressor only. The replacement of the compressor is likely beyond your abilities unless you are a service technician.
A typical cost for such a repair can be more than the freezer may have cost you if nothing is under warranty. Good Luck.
Remove the panel covering the compressor. Remove the relay plugged on the side of the compressor and shake it. If it rattles or has any burned spots it is shorted out. Try replacing it first. Make sure you replace it with the correct replacement, not a fit-all. If this is not the problem you will need to replace the compressor. If it is less than 5 yrs old the compressor should still be in warranty. If so call Sears, it will be repaired free of charge. If it is out of warranty buy a new freezer.
