An appliance that makes a lot of noise is never a good thing! And when your freezer is making a lot of unusual noise, it’s usually either because it’s running too often, it’s not levelled properly, or that there’s an issue with one of the unit’s internal components.
With that being said, start by ensuring that the unit is sitting on a flat surface, and that it is as close to level as possible. Most units will have small adjustable feet located near each corner of the appliance. Use a level and adjust these as needed. However, if the unit is simply running more often than it once did, it may be due to dirty condenser coils as we’ve mentioned above. Or alternatively, you might also be dealing with broken fan blades, a faulty fan motor, or a compressor pump on the verge of failure. Either way, if you can’t find the source of the noise, it’s probably best to call in a professional to help you diagnose and repair the issue before it gets any worse.
Most often, a freezer that won’t run at all is caused by a unit that has been unplugged, or a circuit breaker that has been tripped.
Therefore, start by checking to make sure that the freezer is properly plugged in and that there is no damage to the power cord or outlet.If you can’t see anything wrong, the next step is to check your home’s main electrical panel for any tripped breakers. Your circuit breakers are designed to stop the flow of electricity after a power surge to prevent electrical fires or shocks.
If you notice your breaker has been tripped, try to flip it back on and then check the appliance. If you continue to trip the breaker, it likely means that there’s an issue either with your home’s wiring, or with the appliances internal components, which might be causing a short. Either way, it’s best to leave electrical repairs like this to a professional technician who can perform a diagnosis safely.
Unless you’re dealing with a power issue, lights that don’t work are very common and usually caused by a simple burnt lightbulb. If this is the case, you’ll simply need to replace the burnt bulb with a new one, and then you should be back in business.
However, if all of the lights in your freezer have stopped working, it might indicate a more serious issue with the unit’s internal wiring.
