The freezer was running fine before but when I flipped the breaker back on it displays an F in the display. The freezer is not running and the inside light does not come on.

My 5 year old Whirlpool upright freezer (Model EV209NBTQ 01)

Hello Experts,My 5 year old Whirlpool upright freezer (Model EV209NBTQ 01) will not cool. I live in the Colorado mountains and a black bear (yes, a bear) got into my garage 2 nights ago and raided my freezer. The unit was pulled forward to about a 30 degree angle to the floor resting on a tool box. It was still running the next morning when I discovered the crime. I up-righted the unit, turned it off and let it stand overnight to let any refrigerant oil return to the compressor. The overload relay on the side of the Panasonic compressor now clicks but the compressor will not run and becomes very hot if left on. Is the compressor bound-up from lack of oil or otherwise "fried" from running in a close to horizontal position? What would be a reasonable estimate to have the compressor replaced if it is indeed bad? I see that the compressor kit (parts only) are in the $350-$400 range. Maybe a new freezer would be a better solution.Thanks,Kent

I have an upright freezer, Amana ESU 15 CL, it works fine,

I have an upright freezer, Amana ESU 15 CL, it works fine, just runs all the time. Sides and top warm to touch. On the hot side last night, was using the top of the unit to store paper towels and removed same.Took a long black metal cover off the tubes on the back, there's an ice buildup 12 inches from the top. The water tray under the fridge is dusty and dry as a bone. I've shut the unit off to let the ice melt.I have an energy monitor that tells me it draws about 300 watts.Is it normal to run what seems like all the time ? Why is the water tray dry ?Thank you !

We have a GE Upright Freezer purchased in 2009. The model number is ***** 14SVAR This freezer is located inside of our home.The unit has power and is running however we just noticed that the controls on the front outside panel are inoperative. The panel only shows a small dot at the bottom of the display. We cannot change any settings including the temperature setting.Just wondering if we should start looking to replace this freezer due to its age and the temperature controls being inoperative.
