Question about Kenmore 13.7 cu. ft. / 388 liter Upright Freezer 23424
Every couple of months this freezer defrosts and allows everything to thaw.
In a day or so it begins to freeze again.
I have two of these freezers next to each other in a relatively small space
Most domestic freezers do not have a defrost control. .90 percent of them freeze and every few years enough ice builds up that you have to unload and manually defrost them. so what is probably happening is the stat is sticking in hte off position and not recognizing the call for cool when the temp gets up. if you catch it off and thawed try tapping the stat gently after the temp is getting way warm. if the box comes on and starts freezing again then the stat is sticking in the off cycle and needs to be replaced. usually under 75 dollars and fairly easy. two wires connect in any order.the stat itself has no in and out requirements. power in and power out when it closes. there may be a ground wire usually green and smaller connector attached to some newer stats. look close and you can see the difference. usually the voltage connections are next to each other and the ground is off to the side or end. stat is usually behind a plastic cover inside the freezer. good luck, disconnect power when you change stat of course.
