SubZero 550 Freezer won't come on
Model Number: 550 Brand:

The freezer on our subzero keeps getting stuck off. If I check voltage across the thermostat wires at the defrost timer, I get around 3 to 6 volts, if that means anything. When I unplug wires from the thermostat to test, I get the full 120, and once I plug it back in, everything's fine. I've already replaced the thermostat and it did the same thing a week later.
This time, it happened because our freezer was freezing closed and my wife turned the thermostat down to let it thaw and it wouldn't come back up. I think the last two times it has happened it was when we were out for several days.
The last time I messed with it, I was trying to figure out a why to get it working without taking the thermostat back apart. I had the defrost timer disconnected and the breaker off for a while. When I put everything back together, the refrigerator compressor kicked in, but I heard several clicks, maybe a minute apart, for several minutes, before it finally did. I don't know if that is normal either, but the freezer compressor didn't kick on until the refrigerator compressor did.
