SOURCE: freezer stops and start

ice cream is always the last to freeze and a temp of minus -10 degrees is usually required to get it to get hard. if you put the ice cream in the door it will be especially tough to freeze. a good thermometor is a good investment as you can observe the temps. usually ten degrees or 20 degrees is what they run. yes they do cycle on and off as long as they hold temps thats good. the outside of the freezer gets warm because the hot compressed refrigerant is spread through piping near its surface giving up its heat of compression . setting the stat to max will freeze the ice cream eventually but utility bill suffers . good luck

Do not put a towel on your freezer or anything that could prevent a good seal from top of freezer.

SOURCE: compressor doesn't sound as if it is

Good day,
Sorry, no reset but if the compressor is not running, it could be the thermostat as well. You will need a VOM meter to check to see if power is reaching the compressor.
If it is, it could be the compressor overload protector, the compressor start relay, which are both under a cover on the side of the compressor.

defrost cycle is innactive, will ice up shortly and may not turn compressor off, defrost the unit totally(Turn off for 2 days with door open) and remove all water from the unit once done. Restart unit and should work normal for a week or so, ie...defrost cycle...get back to me if this is the case and will sort it from there, [email protected] Russ

Hello,I defrosted my electrolux chest freezer and now problem is power is on but not freezing,alarm light keeps coming and keeps bleeping every 2 minutes and goes off and on


Is the compressor running? if it is running, but there is no cooling, it is time to buy a new freezer.
If the compressor is NOT running, I would suspect the compressor start relay.
How did you defrost it?

Chest freezer not working. Light inside chest freezer comes on but green power light doesn't turn on and freezer makes no sound. What could be the problem.


Could be your thermostat is bad and not calling for the compressor to come on. If you are able see if there is power getting to the compressor. If not then back track to where you are loosing power (thermostat) etc.

I have whirpool chest freezer defrosted and off for 4 months then turned on 2 red lights going motor is running but not freezing turned up temp to coldest tempurature with amber light on stil the motor...


Since the motor is running, the compressor it is connected to must also be running. The compressor is the thing that provides the cooling under normal circumstances. The only thing I can think of as to why you are not getting cooling is that the refrigerant charge has leaked out of the system. I don't know anything about the red lights you mention.

Magic Chef HMCF7WI is the green light suppose to go off ?


I not 100% sure but believe this is the power light so it should remain on when the freezer calls for cooling and go off when satisfied. If the chest wont stay cold then it sounds like the stat is gone. If it is digital, there may be a power card issue but most chest freezers are run on a standard thermostat with the capillary running up into the base of the unit.

Magic Chef Chest Freezer MCCF5WBX is not getting power, green light not on


Check your outlet with something else that will work, like a radio. If the green light does not come on, then check the wiring. The green light should be on even if the freezer has reached it's temperature. That is simply a light to indicate that power is at the receptacle.

THE GREEN POWER LIGHT FLICKERS, AND COOLS ONLY WHEN THE FAST FREEZE POWER BUTTON IS TURNED ON


This sounds like the freezer stat is gone. If it is digital, there may be a power card issue but most chest freezers are run on a standard thermostat with the capillary running up into the base of the unit. Whilst sourcing the part, put a standard socket timer on to the plug to stop the unit running all the time.
