Upright freezer not working
Posted 21 July 2005 - 03:09 PM
be cooling off. I stuck a thermometer in, and the temp appears to be holding steady at about 35 degrees. I checked the thermostat dial to be sure I didn't accidently bump it putting things in, and that's not the problem. The compressor is running every time I check it. Oh, there's also some frost build up inside. :-(
So what do you think? Is it dead? Worth repairing? Should I just kick it in the side a few times?
Thanks for any advice,
ann in mi, who's going to be having a BIG cookout this weekend!

So I turn the defrost timer to force it into a defrost cycle. If the heater comes on, then I need a new defrost timer (because the auto-on mechanism isn't working) and I'm done, right? If it doesn't, then I check the heater and bi-metal t-stat (or rather, I think I will defer to my husband on checking those). LOL, if I can't figure it out, I might just get all three parts and replace all three... still a whole lot cheaper than a service call.
Ron, would there be frost build-up if it is a sealed-system problem? I'm pretty sure it's out of warranty (5 year warranty, and I'm pretty darn sure we bought it in '99), so I'm trying to avoid calling a service guy out.
Thanks so much for your help!
