Resolved Question:

Frigidaire freezer model FFCO723DW14 Just shut off for no reason. I checked the power/temp dial. it is set to coldest setting, the freezer is 95% full. I plugged into different outlet to see if it was an outlet problem still wont turn back on.

Is this starting to thawJust because it turns off means nothing unless that is the case.

The thermostat or compressor is out here. You cannot fix a compressor, but you can bypass the thermostat for now to see if that is it. Access the thermostat and jump together the 2 wires that go to it; if the thermostat is bad then the compressor will start. use whatever you need to in order to do this as I count on some aptitude from you.

I'm not an electrician I don't know what the thermostat is or what wires to look for? can you provide a step by step process for what you are suggesting I do?

ok, how do I bypass the thermostat? what wires and what do i do to bypass? please provide step by step how-to.

There are only 2 wires to it. Use a another wire, or whatever you want to join them together. Unplug this and make sure your connection is secure- use some tape if needed. Don't make this overly complex- all we have here are 2 wires that need to connect to each other.
