Question about Kenmore 13.7 cu. ft. / 388 liter Upright Freezer 23429

1 Answer

Quit working after I moved it to clean behind it.

I unplugged it and replugged it in to see if the plug got unplugged somehow. Can not find a reset button either.

Hi, perhaps leave it plugged in for more then 20 minutes. It could be in the middle of a defrost cycle. The cycles on these ones happen whether it needs to or not. If it happened to be in a defrost cycle when you unplugged it, you will have to leave it plugged in until the cycle is over at which time it will fire up.

Just curious did you tilt the fridge on its side in-order to move?how did you move it?

RF267aewp french door refrigerator is acting crazy. Sometimes compressor fan runs, sometimes it doesn't same with freezer fans. Front control panel will not respond so I cannot get into diagno

Had same problem on my fridge a long time ago. Here is what was wrong on mine. Debris had clogged up around the fan blades to the point where the very small motor that runs the fan was not powerful enough to make the fan turn. When this happens the compressor has to work harder and harder until it finally shut down on safety cutout. I had to open the back of the fridge and clean up the fan blades, [ took the opportunity to put a small amount of oil on the fan shaft too, my Norge fridge is now over 50 years old.]

Freezer stops running, unplug and replug and it starts??

Clean the condenser. It is probubally overheating. If the condenser is built into the sides of the freezer then the compressor overload could be faulty and needs to be replaced. It will be an overload/relay kit.

My frigidaire freezer upright has an error message door ajar

Sounds like the main control board to the unit needed to be reset and with the resetting it has caused a communication error with the door sensor. Contact a service tech to move forward with a repair.

My freezer is cooling but it is running too much. I was trying to find a new gasket for it. The model number is MCCF5WBX. Is there anywhere that I can find one?

On all freezers there is an area either below or behind that resembles an automobile RADIATOR....this can become clogged with dust. Try unplugging and moving the appliance away from the wall and accessing either behind or beneath and vacuum-out all dust and debris. Replug or restart the freezer, plugging it in, and see if there is a difference. These types of refridgeration devices require the clear passage of air, circulating thru the cooling filters inside and outside of the freezer. Always have air-circulating around your freezers and fridge.

Kenmore upright frost free freezer compressor will not come on...


You have a freon leak and the coolant leaked out. Perhaps when you mode it down the stairs one of the coils with the freon in it ruptured a tiny hole.

You need an authorized and certified tech for freon.

14.1 upright Kenmore freezer was unplugged to clean after hurricane. We moved freezer to new location, never turning it on its side...plugged in and light works but freezer is not cooling. There are no...

Check to see if there is a reset on the compressor or close to it. Turn your control knobs up and down and see if you hear a "click". You might cause it to engage at that point. Let me know how this does.
