My Kenmore Chest Freezer Model 19502-19702 isn't working

I have a Kenmore chest freezer. The Model numbers are 19502/19702. I've owned it for about 6 months. We had a power outage last week. The power was out about 8 hours. I thought the freezer would restart itself, and didn't even check it once the power was back on. Yesterday, I opened the freezer and noticed that it was not as cold as it should be. I read the manual and saw that if there had been a power outage, I needed to wait to restart the freezer. Obviously, I didn't do that. Tonight, I unplugged it for about 20 minutes, then tried to turn it on again. The green power light is still on, but the compressor isn't kicking in. Any suggestions? Is this something I could fix on my own or do I need to have a technician come out? Thanks so much!

The compressor not running can keep the freezer from cooling and I am sorry for the inconvenience. I did some research and I was able to find two links that will provide you with some good information. I hope this helps while you wait for your expert response.

Thank you for your question. I'm sorry you are having this problem with the freezer. If the compressor will not run now, it could be a problem with the compressor or the starting device on the compressor. A technician will need to make this kind of check. I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website:
