We purchased an 8.8cu.ft. Kenmore chest freezer model # 970-159320. I plugged it in at 10:00 am today and later transferred food from old freezer. When I go home at 10:00 pm this evening, the compressor was not running and the temperature in the freezer was -10C. So I increased the setting to 5 but nothing happened. By turning up the dial to 5 should the compressor not have started? 15 minutes later when I checked the freezer the compressor was running. At what setting will the freezer cool down to 0 F?


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. If your refrigerator is running but warm, then… Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...Refrigerator Condenser Coil Cleaning Refrigerator Repairhttp://www.fixya.com/support/r4024657-refrigerator_condenser_coil_cleaningRefrigerator Troubleshooting Refrigerator Compressorhttp://www.fixya.com/support/r3885294-refrigerator_troubleshootingRefrigerator Compressor Start Capacitor and Start Relayhttp://www.fixya.com/support/r4023749-refrigerator_compressor_start_capacitorheatman101

1991 Kenmore 16 model 253 in storage for 7 years. Plugged it in and turned it nn last night and seemd to run fine, nice and quiet just like before. Today it is not cold and the comressor seems to be r


If the freezer was stored and not running for 7 years it may have lost coolant.  Since the compressor is running recharging the coolant may fix the problem.  Hot compressor might indicate low coolant since its motor is immersed in it.

Compressor Stopping When I turn my Frigidaire chest freezer on, the compressor will run for about 5-10 seconds, then stop. Freezer, in turn, can't cool. Please help?


Compressor is running overloaded possible problems bad relay/overload /capacitor dirty or clogged condensers if the unit uses a condenser fan suspect a bad fan. and defective thermostats are notorious for short cycling. id check the coils first and if dirty clean up maybe that can be the major problem.

Freezer appears to run; compressor hums and there is a constant gurgling sound from inside... but no cooling action at all. Replaced the thermostat and tried again for a day... nothing but the sounds of action and the compressor gets warm, but no cooling inside or heat in other areas like walls. No indication of a coolant leak. Any ideas?


There is a blockage or leakage from the pipe line.

Make sure you have power going to the unit. Check the thermostat for power on both sides going in and coming out. You need to give me more info. before I can suggest anything else.

Kenmore chest freezer.


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

Just bought a used GE chest freezer model FH5DSAWH from friends. Brought it home plugged it in and it doesn't get cold. Can hear it running and the compressor gets hot. Any ideas? Was told it worked great. When we plug in You can hear it start and when you turn knob off you can hear it turn off. Left on for 4 hours on no cooling. Temp actually got warmer? Thank You.


Your ptc overload relay on the compressor is bad,unplug it off the compressor and get a replacement at an appliance parts store,plug in the replacement and this will solve your problem

Running non stop!


Sadly these old freezers use way too much electricity. You will be better off junking this one and purchasing a good used or brand new one.

The unit cools ok. I can't seem to be able to adjust the thermostat so that it will stay cool. The range of adjustment is very small, almost to the OFF point. When I turn it one way I hear a click, when I turn it back slightly I hear another click. I believe this indicates the thermostat coming on or off. When it is on, it runs all the time. Temperature gets to below 0. When I turn it slightly to the point that it just clicks off, it stops running and the temperature goes to 30+. What is the problem? Do I need a new thermostat??


This is surely a defective thermostat as per your information. You have to replace it.
