If your freezer is not working properly, look at some common problems below.

Here are some of the most common freezer problems that our technicians often deal with:

  • Not freezing
  • Not working, and there is a clicking sound
  • Freezer has a frost build-up
  • Freezer is not cold enough
  • Freezer is overcooling
  • Freezer is noisy
  • Freezer runs constantly
  • Freezer is leaking water

Freezer is not freezing

Here are the most probable causes:

  • Dirty condenser сoils

Condenser сoils

When the condenser coils are dirty, it reduces the overall cooling capacity of your freezer. Clean them using vacuum cleaner every six months to prevent this issue.

  • Malfunctioning evaporator fan motor

Evaporator's fan motor

The evaporator fan motor is responsible for circulating the air throughout the freezer. When it is malfunctioning, freezer won’t cool.




  • Faulty start relay

Start relay

The start relay is the device, which provides power to the compressor. When it is not working properly, the freezer’s compressor will work intermittently or won’t work at all.




  • Frozen evaporator coils

Evaporator coils

The evaporator coils can become frozen over and air won’t pass over them. It may cause your freezer not freezing properly.




Freezer is not working and making a clicking sound

Here are the most probable causes:

  • Broken start relay

Start relay

The start relay starts the compressor and keeps it running until the compressor cycles off. When the relay becomes defective, the compressor won’t start and as a result freezer is not working properly.




  • Compressor is not working properly


The compressor is a pump, which compresses the refrigerant in gas form into the condenser coils, where the gas is condensed into a hot liquid. If the compressor is malfunctioning, freezer won’t work correctly. This kind of repair requires access to the sealed refrigerant system, so you should have a professional appliance repair technician to do this job for you.



Freezer runs constantly

Here are the most probable causes:

  • Faulty temperature control thermostat

Temperature control thermostat

The temperature control thermostat directs voltage to the compressor, evaporator fan motor, and condenser fan motor.

If your freezer is running continuously even though the desired temperature has been reached, the temperature control thermostat is faulty and should be replaced.



  • Malfunctioning evaporator fan motor

Evaporator fan motor

The evaporator fan motor circulates air throughout the freezer. When it is not working properly, it may cause the freezer will run all the time.




  • The condenser fan motor is not running

Condenser's fan motor

The condenser fan motor draws air through the condenser and over the condenser coils. If the motor is not working, check the fan blades for obstructions to ensure they can spin freely. If the fan blades do not spin freely, the fan motor bearings are worn out, and the fan motor should be replaced.



Freezer is leaking water

Here are the most probable causes:

  • Clogged defrost drain

Defrost drain

The defrost water goes off through the defrost drain during the defrost cycle. When the defrost drain becomes clogged with ice, the water overflows the drain and leak from the bottom of the freezer.




  • Damaged waterline or valve

Water line

If your freezer is leaking from the back, the water line or the valve in the wall that turns the water on and off for the ice maker and water dispenser can be defective.




  • Worn door gasket

Door gasket

Worn freezer door gaskets can cause excessive moisture leading to water leaks.
