Question about Frigidaire 14 cu. ft. / 396 liter Upright Freezer FFU14FC4A
Unpluged freezer to move it took about 30 minutes . reloaded it and now it won't kick on I just hear a click
That is the overload protector on the compressor. Keep the door closed to preserve the cooling you have from the frozen food. Leave it unplugged for about an hour. Bang on the compressor with a rubber or wooden hammer then plug it back in. If it does not start you either need a new start relay or a compressor.

Hi - Typically freezers are not recommended to be located outside because if the garage temperature is above 100 degrees, it will have difficulties performing optimally due to un-circulating air. Some manufacturers have garage kit design to help with this issue. It is design to solely be used during the winter to provide heat to the coils which trigger the compressor to come on. During the summer months, generally it is not needed.
When was the last time you cleaned the condensers? You may do so by removing the toe grille and use extended vacuum attachment and condenser cleaning brush to remove dust buildup from condenser coils usually located on the left side underneath. If you hear the compressor running and if it is providing warm air then that means it is operating correctly and the sealed system is removing heat from the cabinet. Fan motor/evaporator may be the primary issue. However, if you do not hear the compressor and the unit is blowing room temperature then the unit may possibly have a sealed system leak, faulty compressor or overload relay. Contact a professional to move forward accurately from this point.
