SOURCE: new chest freezer not getting cold

I am having the same problem. How long did it take?
I bought mine second hand and think it may be broken. I plugged it in 8 hours ago. I can hear it running but it's not cold yet.

SOURCE: Chest freezer - hose adaptor?

That would depend on the size of the freezer. If it's a compact 5-7 cubic feet, then its not necessarily needed, but if it is a large freezer I would recommend buying the hose adapter. The basic function for the hose adapter is draining the water after defrosting the freezer.

So if it's a large freezer that will not be moved, then YES by all means, you need the adapter.

Sounds like your freezer has lost its charge of refrigerant. That motor sound is the compressor. And the internal thermal overload is tripping it out every minute because refrigerant also cools the compressor motor. Have a licensed repairman find the leak, seal it,and recharge it with R134a refrigerant.

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.

Kenmore 7.5 freezer stopped working.


Thanks for all the suggestions. I just replaced the overload relay and it does the same thing. Runs for a few seconds and the loud click from overload relay. I did notice the relay is really hot to the touch, if that matters.Coils on back are clean. I had noticed the last few months that the inside coils were frosting up quite a bit.Really had hoped it was the relay.

We have a general electric 20 cu ft chest freezer. the outside becomes hot to the touch is this normal?


Yes, the freezer / refrigerator is a heat pump, it transfers heat from the inside to the outside. Heat transfer effitiance is reduced if the outside is at hight temperature, so it is sudgested to allow free air flow for the back of the cooling device (where the radiator is )

My chest style freezer makes a loud clunking noise every so often. What could it be?


If you hear this noise when the unit shuts off, you might even feel it vibrate the floors. This would be a compressor that is on its last leg, I would start shopping, but you are in no immediate rush, unless its happened for quite a while.

Chest freezer motor runs but the inside doesn't get cold


Sounds like you have a bad compressor or it has lost the gas charge.

GE chest freeze won't get cold


the noise your hearing indicates the possibility of a bad start relay on the comp or possibly it just came loose during the move. on the side of the compressor you will see 2-3 wires running into an electrical connection reseat this first. if still no operation replace teh relay. you can purchase thru any reputable appliance parts dealer. after replacing the relay if you have no operation then likely problem is seized comp.
domestic freezers do not have low pressure switches that indicate low freon charge.

Noise


When the freezer goes into defrost mode, some thumping/popping noises can sometimes be heard as the defrost heater melts the ice built up on the evaporator. Quite normal.
