Default Keezer question

I just put together my keezer. It's a 5.1 cubic foot freezer with a 13inch collar on top..so quite a bit of head space.

I installed a PC fan on top also to circulate air.

Anywho it's been running pretty non stop (2+ hours now) and the outside is getting pretty hot.

I really don't want to fry my compressor.

Should I be concerned at all? When's just to much for the compressor to handle?

I raised the temperature on my controller. When I go to turn the freezer on the compressor makes a knocking noise.

I looked at the back of the freezer and tried it again and observed the knocking as well as the compressor moving back and forth a bit before stopping.

Is this normal?

First off is there anything in the freezer? It takes longer and more energy to cool a fridge / freezer with nothing in it.

what controller are you using?

Did you do any insulation? Hopefulle you left the gasket on the freezer to meet your collar.

Do you have any pics of the keezer itself? They say a thousand words.

THat is not normal and your right to be concerned.
