We had a tech come out; he said the problem is that the compressor cycles on, overheats, then doesn't come on again when it is supposed to. ( I don't have his invoice in front of me, so this description is my words from what I remember reading the invoice). So they are recommending a compressor replacement.
If you can give me some more info to help me make a decision I credit you.
Even though a new freezer isn't much more than the compressor replacement, I'm not sure which will be the best choice.
If I went new, there's a 20.7 Frigidaire model #LFFH21F7HW, that has an exterior temp readout and built in alarms
for temp and power. ($600)
Maybe a compressor replacement, (under $500), might be a better compressor than what comes on new ones(?) I've heard that because of energy requirements, cost of copper, & sourcing from China, that new
freezers/fridges have less copper & smaller compressors.
So what do you think?
