My freezer runs and continually blows cold air, but does not freeze.
Answer Hello Tim. If the unit is not cooling, you need to check the compressor on the unit. Here is a link to our Repair Forum, this is a free service to our customers.

The fan on my upright freezer shuts off. Is the defrost timer the only thing controlling this?
Answer Hello Lee. No, the cold control powers the fan as well. Test and see if there is power to the fan motor. If so, and it does not run, replace the fan motor. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Does the timer rotate? My freezer runs all the time and never shuts off. Its cold but does not freeze. I looked at the timer dial but it never moves. That's why I think its bad.
Answer Hello Ron. The timer does rotate, but it is extremely slow and you will not be able to watch it turn. It sounds like you may have a sealed system issue, and not a timer issue.
