I just bought this freezer used and it does nothing. I had an electrician look at it he thinks it's the compressor is it worth fixing?
The compressor is a replaceable part for the unit, unfortunately we do not have compressor available, part number 302744 is showing as discontinued by the manufacturer.
My freezer is down around zero and won't kick off. I put new theremstat and did not help. Is there anyway to clean condenser or airway? Thanks.
Answer Hello George. You will need to check and make sure the cap tube for the thermostat 297216033 is in the correct location. To clean the condenser 5300083897, you will pull the unit out and clean the coils on the back of the freezer. Make sure the freezer has room to get air behind it. Also, check the door seal 216522309 and make sure it is sealing properly and not causing the freezer to stay on. Hope this helps.
My freezer is not cooling?
Answer Hi Charles. Is your compressor running? The compressor start/run relay is part # 216008900. Is the defrost timer stuck in defrost? this part # is 297318010. Is the temperature control closing , calling for compressor start up? This part # is 216303600. Hope this helps. Thank you.
My condenser is inside the left wall and the repairman told me that is where the leak is and he couldn't repair it. How do you get to it to either repair or replace it?
Answer Hello Neal. The condenser 5300083897 for the model number you provided is on the back of the refrigerator. The line goes into the freezer section. You will remove the back wall inside the freezer to access the line. The other line goes into the compressor. Hope this helps.
My freezer quit freezing. Food in the freezer would freeze and thaw. Some of the food stays frozen, like solid roasts, but berries or corn just will not freeze and the freezer is on the coldest temperature. There is even a burn't mark on the inside bottom of the freezer, not sure what caused that. Could this be the thermostat being bad? Please Help
Answer Hello Steve. Check and see if there is a frost build up on the back wall. If so, you have a defrost problem. You will need to test the heater 216730700 and thermostat 297216600 and make sure they are reading closed for continuity when cold. If they test good, you will need to replace the defrost timer 297318010. If there is no frost, make sure the fan motor inside the freezer is running properly. You can test the heater and thermostat with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter.
