I'm not well versed in refrigeration terms, so hopefully this makes sense.
A few weeks ago I got a 8.8 CF Kenmore freezer (253.16922103
) from craigslist. The lady said it didn't get cold, so I got it for free. I took it home, plugged it in and it cooled to about 10 degrees Fahrenheit. Thinking that the must not have known how to operate the freezer, I ordered the parts for my keezer conversion.
To get it out of the way, I moved the freezer about 3 feet and aligned it with the wall.
After moving, it does not cool. The compressor comes on and gets warm, but not super hot. The 'drier'? gets cold and develops frost on the outside. I've removed the temperature controller and just created a short to keep the compressor on while troubleshooting (I'm using a STC-1000 controller).
The freezer does not have an auto-defrost, so I know that is not the issue.
I have not tested the capacitor or start relay yet. My assumption is that if those were bad the compressor would not come on?
I'm just confused because it was working completely fine before I moved it a few feet.
Thanks in advance.
