It sounds like you had a leak which sometimes happens when not used for awhile and if so you would need to get it recharged and the leakage area located and fixed.

Is your circulating fan working?
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed

My amana upright freezer was working fine, but transported it to another location when I plugged it back in, it started to make a buzzing noise. How do I turn this off or fix it?


Hello....First...when you transported the freezer...you must sure the unit stays in the vertical position and not laying on it's side...back..or front....If the freezer is making buzzing noises...adjust the thermostat setting down until the buzzing stops...and increase the setting gradually until the desired temp is reached...it could take 24 hours for it to stablize...I hope this was helpful.....PEACE.......

I have a small magic chef freezer that opens from the top. I has about 3 or 4 cu. ft. of freezer space. Lately a buzzer has been going off every 15 or 20 minutes. It buzzes for about 5-10 seconds and then...


With the time as the compressor gets old the buzzing will increased, its not a bid deal, just set the thermostat to 1 during the winter, saves you energy and give the compressor more time to rest.

My magic chef freezer will freeze for a day and then the temperature will increase to 70 degrees. The freezer is just two years old. Is it worth having someone to come out and look at it or is it...


This is a manual defrosting freezer so the most likely cause is the temp control. Sad that is is only 2 years old but the temp control is not working correctly.

It sure sounds like it is running until it cycles off at the "I reached the cold enough" SET TEMP then never starting up again. That start up is controlled by the temp control. Call and make SURE the temp control is called the thermostat!

    BUZZES


    This sounds like the temperature monitor is alarming because the temperature has not cooled down enough yet in your freezer. turn the monitor off until the freezer reaches proper temperature then you can turn it back on.

    Temperature swing specification in a chest freezer.


    It depends on the control that your freezer utilizes.

    If your temp control dial has the numbers 0-9 or 1-9, then you have whats commonly known as a coil temp sensor.


    Unlike an air temp contol that measure the air temp inside the freezer and comes on and off with a 3-5° swing, the coil temp sensor runs a little bit different.

    With a coil temp control or sensor, the temp control has a capillary tube and bulb that is inserted into the coil either at on of the ends down a guidetube or just into the center of the radiator type fins. This temp control measures the temperature of the coil, and not the temperature of the air inside the freezer. When the unit runs, the coils typically gets 20° colder than the air temp. And when the control satisfies (shuts off), it will not call for cooling again until the sensing bulb has reached the cut-in point which is typically well above design box temp.


    So, to quickly answer your question, yes it is possible to have a 25° temp swing and not have anything really wrong with the unit. That is how its been designed to operate and that is how it will operate. Your only option (although not recommended) is to replace the coil temp sensor with and air temp control. That will give you more consistent temps.


    Also, when taking temp of a freezer with a coil temp sensor, be sure to temp the product in the freezer and not the air temperature.
