Heating, Air Conditioning, Fridge, HVAC/Re: Chest Freezer just quit


Hey Eric,
After reading one of your posts, I went back out and turned the freezer totally around and found the Make and Model numbers.  First, the indicator light did go off too and there is not humming or sounds coming from it at all and I have checked the cord and receptacle also.  
It is a Kenmore #198.8181620

If it is not running thats a good thing as it is easier to diagnose.  First we must verify voltage going to the unit.  Next verify the cold control has continuity across the two terminals when turned switch to on....  DOes it?

Waiting to hear from you,
Eric and Ann Campion
