Is the compressor trying to start and then clicking off or what exactly is it doing?

Thank you. Can you get to the compressor and unplug the freezer?

i have it unplugged
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 4 months ago

On the side of the compressor is the start relay (see number 7 below). Can you pull it off the compressor and shake it? Does it rattle?

it doesn't rattle
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 4 months ago

Okay, and had it been unlplugged for at least 20 minutes after moving it and plugging it back in?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
at least 20 minutes or more
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 4 months ago

Hmm, odd that it is not starting. Is the compressor real hot?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No not hot at all
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 4 months ago

Okay, so it may be that the relay has failed, the compressor lock ed up or it just needs to equalize the pressures. What I would do is leave it unplugged for 30 minutes then plug it back in. If the same thing happens, replace the relay, available below.

Did the freezer come back to life?

No it didn’t come back to life
Appliance Technician: Kelly, Appliance Technician replied 4 months ago

Hopefully that new relay will solve the issue. If it does not, the compressor is faulty.
