There's a good chance that the problem is in the power cord, or the plug. You should check the continuity from the plug spades to the terminal block at the freezer. If you don't have a test meter, just replace the power cord.

Thank you for the quick reply, John. Power cord checked out okay, so I checked circuit breakers in panel and one had tripped (bad outlet?). Freezer works fine.
