Kenmore Upright Freezer Works Sometime

I have an older upright Kenmore freezer, 13 cubic feet. It's a manual defrost, no light, no bells or whistles. One day last week it shut off and started to defrost. I unplugged it for a few hours and when I pluuged it back in it started working fine. It worked fine all weekend then last night it shut off and won't start. It clicks like its trying to start then a few seconds later it clicks like it turning off. A couple of minutes later it trys to go through the cycle again. Then after a few minutes, it'll click and the compressor will come on work fine, freezes a cup of water. Then, when it switches off it won't start until it clicks on and off a few times. What part should I replace...first?? Or, do I buy a new one??

Try a new start relay and overload kit specifically for the make and model freezer you are working on. if compressor can be seen ,the numbers on it can be used to get correct oem start cap, relay ,and overload. if your unit is having starting problems that will usually fix it. if however, the stat is failing to bring it on a new stat is called for. but it sounds like it is having starting problems since you said it was off a long while then still struggled on the overload to start then finally did. if the new start components don't work then new freezer time. compressor replacement is to expensive anymore. good luck

We have a 20.3 cubic feet Kenmore upright frost free freezer we purchased in May 2003. We noticed the meat was beginning to thaw one afternoon. We hit the quick freeze button and that seemed to fix the...


This sounds like a bad thermostadt, since the quick freeze button does work. But it should be much colder than 32 degrees. It may also be the motor, since it runs for brief periods of time after plugging it back in.

I'd say best bet here is to call a repairman. (sorry...)

Old Kenmore Freezer


It is uaually coded into the model #. Usually in the middle. I can usually eyeball them. another solution is measure the outside dimensions of a refrigerator or freezer you know the size of then compare them. This will give you a rough estimate.
