The freezer is not working is not cooling at all. The compressor seems to be running but it gets very hot really quickly.

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

Chest freezer model mfco5mobw4 been plugg in for 2 days now set on the coldest setting not getting cold compressor is warm

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.

Chest Freezer MCCF7WBX.Magic Chef.. Worked fine for a 1.5 years. Compressor turned off & on to cool unit when needed. The way it should. Now it continuously runs. Unfortunately the warranty is out....

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.

MCCF7W Runs, but won't freeze....

Sounds like the refrigeratnt has leaked out. It is not worth repairing. The only other possibility is the cold control but I would not buy one until a servicer has looked at it.

Kenmore upright freezer model 29238 keeps tripping switch

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.

Motor trys to start

Sounds like the compressor has locked up. You can try to replace the start relay which plugs onto the compressor terminals.

Most factory built refrigerators and freezers have 5 year refrigeration system warranties. You will pay for labor and other consumables.

Kenmore chest freezer not working

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.
