Switch on and leave it to freeze.approx 24hours.buzzing could be compressor working overtime to get cold.or in fact the freezer is not on a level surface.

Power off for electrical repair. Plugged floor freezer back in and a loud buzzing noise is ongoing. Not sure if this is a temperature alert or if there is another problem. Thanks for your help.


This sounds as if its a start relay problem. They are attached to the compressor
You will need the model and serial number to get a new one at the appliance
parts store. They are usually under a plastic cover on the side of the compressor
and the cover is retained by a metal spring clip. Remember to unplug unit before
replacing this part. The model and serial number should be located near the compressor.

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.

I have a chest freezer model AFFC1526DW2 it stopped freezing. The power light is still on. What could be the problem


the thermostat may not be turning on the compressor.
Do you hear a buzz and or clicking every few minutes when plugged in? If so the compressor is trying to start indicating a problem with the compressor. you could check the windings for continuity or a short and then try a 3-in-1 start kit.

GE 5CF CHEST FREEZER


I got delivery today for the same freezer and had the same question.
I just called GE's customer service number (800-626-2005) and the agent told me that GE uses this button panel (which has the green on/off light switch, the two white switches, and the round control dial) for all or most of its freezers. But the buttons do not do anything on the 5 cubic foot chest freezer. They are not connected to anything and are non-active buttons. On other freezer models above this one, the two switches serve a purpose, but not the 5CF model. This is a simple, inexpensive freezer and it doesn't have bells and whistles--but it does have the same control panel as the multi-feature freezers. Hope that helps.

Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

Brand new unit, compressor noise.


Since I could get no one to tell me about new freezer compressor making buzzing noise while on, I had the store come a pick it up and give me my money back.
