Sounds like compressor is overheating and taking hours to restart. check by listening for the hum of the compressor shortly after it has reached temperature. also check the condenser is clean and fan working.

If all fans are running, but not compressor You could try to install 3 N 1 start kit, thats might help 50/50. If it will start compressor - be ready for compressor to go out soon. might work for a year.

Probably needs to be vacuumed and a little oil, if that doesn't help the fan may need to be replaced

Locksmith.....just take the model number and serial number to them. If they can't, most likely have to be from the manufacture.

Which model freezer do you have?

A few possible resets: press and hold the Set and + keys for 5+ seconds. On some models, that will get the freezer out of demo mode. On other models, it's the Set and Down arrow. For a few models, it's the Options and Up arrow. In all cases, it's press and hold both buttons until the unit responds.

I hope you will add a comment with the model of your freezer so that I can determine which set of instructions will work for your unit.

Contact Whirlpool to see if a manual is available. Whirlpool makes Sears Kenmore.

Hi! I am having this exact problem also. The best answer I have been able to discover is that it is related to the freezing up of the internal water tube that drains the fridge compartment into the freezer section. In addition, a pool of water freezes on the interior floor of my freezer and has to be manually chipped up and removed. I did try to unload the freezer and defrost it thoroughly, but it still happens and has to be chipped each week. I am still seeking a solution, but at least I can make the chiming stop by locking the temperature via the button on the front panel. Best wishes. If you discover a better or final soln, please post. I will do so as well.. Regards.

Make sure that power is reaching the motor after going thru the thermostat.
If juice is there replace the starting capacitor. If the motor gets hot but still does not run the rotor might be frozen - check with ammeter for abnormal current draw.
If compressor is frozen all you can do is replace unit.
