Locksmith.....just take the model number and serial number to them. If they can't, most likely have to be from the manufacture.

Which model freezer do you have?

A few possible resets: press and hold the Set and + keys for 5+ seconds. On some models, that will get the freezer out of demo mode. On other models, it's the Set and Down arrow. For a few models, it's the Options and Up arrow. In all cases, it's press and hold both buttons until the unit responds.

I hope you will add a comment with the model of your freezer so that I can determine which set of instructions will work for your unit.

Logically it would be warmer. Up = higher temp; down = lower

Contact Whirlpool to see if a manual is available. Whirlpool makes Sears Kenmore.

Hi! I am having this exact problem also. The best answer I have been able to discover is that it is related to the freezing up of the internal water tube that drains the fridge compartment into the freezer section. In addition, a pool of water freezes on the interior floor of my freezer and has to be manually chipped up and removed. I did try to unload the freezer and defrost it thoroughly, but it still happens and has to be chipped each week. I am still seeking a solution, but at least I can make the chiming stop by locking the temperature via the button on the front panel. Best wishes. If you discover a better or final soln, please post. I will do so as well.. Regards.

Make sure that power is reaching the motor after going thru the thermostat.
If juice is there replace the starting capacitor. If the motor gets hot but still does not run the rotor might be frozen - check with ammeter for abnormal current draw.
If compressor is frozen all you can do is replace unit.

If, by plug in you mean the socket, then you need to check the fuse in the power plug next.
At the very lease there should be some light on the unit that illuminate even if it does not FREEZE.
If the compressor comes on wait to see if there is any drop in temperature. then it is possible the fuse was faulty.

see below links for more information on possible causes

I am Taking a guess at this. May or may not work. Have you tried unplugging the unit?, and leaving it unplugged for 5 or 10 minutes? I have noticed with everything these days having electronics involved, severing power often resets everyuthing to a default position. You might try it if you haven't already.
also, there should be in the owners manual an 800 number
to call for assistance from the mfr.thwy usually have a tech you can talk to. good luck!

If it fits properly in the alloted space and everything lines up, it will work.
