Not fun the first time. Unplug the unit. There will be a plate with two screws that the thermostat is mounted to either on the right side or right front of the coil cover. Remove the two screws and pull the plate and thermostat down in one piece. Unplug the two wires from the stat and remove the plate from the stat making sure to note which way the plate and thermostat are oriented. The thin capillary from the stat runs up to the back of the coil. You have to reach your hand into the opening created by removing the plate and feel your way to the capillary entrance at the coil. You may be able to just see it through the hole. Make a good mental note of its position in there and pull the old capillary out. Measure how deep the capillary was in there and try to get that far in with the new one. I generally put a little piece of tape on the new capillary about where I want it to stop at the coil. You just want to make sure the capillary is clear of any wires and doesn't rub against anything in its routing. Reinstall is reverse of uninstall.

Most of the time it's a compressor relay that does this. Your model will most likely have one. Get your model number and check the internet and see if your model has one. They are usually a small black plastic device attached directly to the compressor terminals and take up two of the three terminals. This is under the black plastic cover that is held on by a metal piece or wire, right on the compressor itself. Usually they're only about 10-20 bucks so it my be worth a shot.

Hello Vic, I'm not sure what model of Freezer you have, but I suspect that the "condenser" coils on the back or underside of the unit need to be vacuumed or cleaned to rid of the dust bunnies, cat/dog hair etc. The compressor is likely trying desperately to do it's job, but that array of pipes are the only way it can get rid of the heat that it is stealing from the inside of the freezer. IF the coils are clean or if it still keeps running after cleaning... no matter what setting the "cold" dial is set to, then likely there could be a relay that has fused close preventing the unit from cycling properly. I hope this helps! /The GreyOne

The replacement thermostat could be defective or installed incorrectly.

The first thing that needs to be determined is if the internal box temp is rising above the desired temp and causing the compressor to come on. If so, you may have an issue with the box insulation or an air leak somewhere on the box. Start there and we can progress in the troubleshooting steps.

Just google "Partstown.com" and look for the manual. They have a very extensive library of manuals.

Then what...? You don't like the way it works...? or unusual...? Old fridge always noisy then brand news one.
As long as it's cold the way it should be then it's okay.

Good luck

it appears to be a known problem. You need a new thermostat. Take a look at the link and also look at the Video tab.

probably a bad thermostat or set at the wrong setting. If you have a digital thermostat the steps are a bit much to type out. If you have the older and more common mechanical thermostat it should be set about midway. The knob is typically marked from 0 - 9 and should be set on 4 - 5. get back to me if you have the digital control.
