Major Appliances/freezer


I have a small chest freezer.  It works but sometimes it lets the food defrost before it kicks in again.  If I check it sometimes and the light is off I can give it a kick and it starts up and the light comes on.  Any idea why it doesn't start up when it should?

It sounds like you have a main power supply connection failure.  Lights are not controlled by the thermostat.  Check wiring from your outlet to the first connection or so in the unit.  Let me know what you find.  

Waiting to hear from you,
