Chest Freezer Stop Working. Kenmore 198.8183580. - help toubleshooting

27 July 2013 - 11:27 AM

My trusty old Kenmore chest freezer stop cooling suddenly when my kid left the door ajar. I unplugged for a week and it wont turn back on. I hear a faint hum when I plug it in so i removed the access panel and see the compressor, start relay, and a capacitor. pretty simple layout.

how do i go about testing these parts? ohm/volt meter in hand. thanks.

microwave died. ge jvm1860s d001

Okay this is my fault I was reheating some fast food and did not realize the sandwich was wrapped in foil paper. It looks like the microwave completed the reheat cycle and died. yes it sparked and there a small amount of black smoke inside the unit. there is no power to the unit but I do have power coming out of the wall. no lights or lcd on microwave. I took the control panel off the front and remove the small white ceramic fuse and verified that it is good it has continuity so it's not the fuse.

whats next to check.... thanks

Hot Refrigerator Freezer Help Hot Point model htm18gcsarsa

03 August 2012 - 05:49 PM

hi folks just arrived at our beachhouse after not being here a week and refrigerator is hot food and food spolied. boo... now that I got it all cleaned up I started troubleshooting....

Condenser evaporator fans are running, Compressor is not kicking on and was hot to the touch.
I am getting 120 V to the compresser
I pulled the start unit and can't really tell if it works not but it certainly does not rattle.
I'm thinking to check the thermostat but not sure how or maybe you gurus can point me in right direction.

is there a way to manually start the compressor while I wait for a start unit assembly?

please help

thank you in advance

Kenmore Deep Freezer- outside walls burning hot- HELP

01 September 2011 - 04:01 PM

I have a kenmore chest type deep freeze and I recently started storing bags of ice in it as my ice machine made too much- so I bagged it and put it in the deep freeze. Now I notice that the exterior wall of my freezer is very hot and uncomfortable to put your hand on. At first I thought it was a defrost cycle- but its been that way for a week now and I am concerned.

Is there an issue with story ice in a freezer? Does it trigger a defrsot cycle or is something shot?

Thanks in advance for help and insight.

By the way, the freezer is working fine and stay cold. Just the outside walls are hot.
