The clicking is the compressor trying to start. Probably a better bet to replace rather than try to repair with new compressor and electrics, drier and gas.

Make sure everything is working, I.E. compressor, fans. Now I need to know if the freezer shuts off at 14 degrees, or does it continue to run without making temp. If it shuts off, then the first place to look is the thermostat. It may be out of calibration. If it continues to run, then the solution may be as simple as cleaning the condenser coil. or the defrost has malfunctioned somehow. Defrost probleams will cause excess ice on the inside coil. You may need to remove the panels to see how much ice is on it. It sounds like the compressor is good, as it is pretty cold. Just not cold enough. A deep freeze should be at least 0.

Most likely a bad compressor. You could try a new relay on it first.

It might be freezing normally but that doesn't mean that compressor's motor isn't overheating due to lack of freon or mechanical problems on motor itself. Better not risk a fire and let someone experienced check the compressor's motor. Overheating is never a good sign.

SOURCE: Used chest freezer not cooling

Slobberlips,

One of two situations has occured with your used freezer:

1: The unit freon needs to be recharged, this happens when you develope a leak in the freon coils, or the unit is old enough that the freon has reached it's usable potential.

2: The compressor may seem to run fine, but in fact, has an internal problem.

My suggestion, return the unit if you can, and walk the isles of your local Menards, Sears, or any other local vendor in your area, and see how much prices have declined for the chest freezer.

The initial investment for a new freezer will offset any problems you might have with any other used unit, and the warranty is always a plus if you do have problems with the new unit.

Hope this helps you out.

We purchased this same Kenmore chest freezer model 19502/19702 in 2010. In less than 2 years the compressor quit. If you do a search on this model you will see dozens of complaints. Don't waste your time or money on this freezer.

Hello i have a kenmore chest freezer model 25519702010


It sound like either the compressor is damaged or the system has a leak. Either way if it's only 6 months old you should call the store you bought it from and have them book an appointment to have it repaired under warranty. If it's not under warranty then you'll still have to have a tech check it out with special equipment that you won't find in any store.

My power wen out and now my kenmore chest freezer high temp alarm is beeping and now it wont cool


I'd turn unit off...unplug it for a few minutes...plug it back in...and turn it back on setting the thermostat again.

Hopefully, you'll hear the compressor kick in and start cooling again.

Hope this helps...

Freezer has quit freezing only a little over a year old. manufactor date 6/2009 compressor is running will only cool down to 50 degrees thermostat set on coldest.


Is the compressor continually running? If so then there could be a leak in the system or the compressor is damaged. If it's running then stopping, the cold control (thermostat) could be damaged.

I have a freezer chest the compressor comes on but it never cools


. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay.
