How do you activate the flash defrost function on a Kenmore 16082 model? I can't find any flash defrost button.


Hi

Not all these models were fitted with a flash defrost plunger, if fitted it is inside the lid on the left hand side.
You will need to remove all the product from the freezer and store it elsewhere.
1. Pull out the flash defrost button
2. Put a chock of wood or similar to prevent the lid from closing (if the lid closes it will stop the flash defrost)
3. Wait until all the ice has melted then clean out the casing, some of these models have a drain plug in the base, (put a shallow tray under the outlet to catch the water) others you will need to mop out the water.
4. Push in the flash defrost button and wait for a couple of hours and then you can reload the freezer.

If there is no flash defrost button then follow the above instructions after you have emptied the freezer, all you need to do is switch off and unplug the freezer then go to 2. above. When finished plug back in and reload.

Regards

Gordon

Does the kenmore cold spot chest freeze model 253.8193610 have a defrost timer


Chest freezers don't normally self defrost. They just freeze. To defrost them, you must shut them off.

The front surface of the chest freezer is pretty hot.


the condenser lines are between the walls of the frzr and if it has a fan to cool the compressor down and it is stalled is the reason the walls are so hot and no it will not cool down over time if new is a flaw in making of this unit take it back or if older only the side should be getting warm not hot then if older be cautious of this no repair can be done on these type of unit they are between foam filled walls....

Need -20 degrees Celsius...Will this brand get there?


If all is ideal maybe -10 an occationally -15 and this is F considerable coolder than -20C. ALSO fyi a chest freezer will stay at or below these temps better than an upright and especially a self defrosting model. Because a chest freezer you dont loose all the cold air when you open the door. TYhey are not made in auto matic defrost as far as I know (never have seen one but then I havent been looking for one either. An up right freezer can be manual defrost or automatic. but the cold air falls ouit every time the door is opened.

Please let em know if this helps you by giving me as high a mark as you can and thank you for using fixya.

Kenmore 23.1 cf Chest Freezer not cooling below 14F


Make sure everything is working, I.E. compressor, fans. Now I need to know if the freezer shuts off at 14 degrees, or does it continue to run without making temp. If it shuts off, then the first place to look is the thermostat. It may be out of calibration. If it continues to run, then the solution may be as simple as cleaning the condenser coil. or the defrost has malfunctioned somehow. Defrost probleams will cause excess ice on the inside coil. You may need to remove the panels to see how much ice is on it. It sounds like the compressor is good, as it is pretty cold. Just not cold enough. A deep freeze should be at least 0.
