    same here - the light was on but everything was thawing - a friend said she had the same problem & to check for a reset switch on the bottom edge but I can't seem to find anything of this nature - mine is a Kenmore 30 years old!

Jeremy,

You can put a fridge/freezer in the garage. Be sure that the area is level so you don't warp the case which will cause sealing problems with the gasket. Also, clean the condenser frequently as dust and dirt will reduce efficiency.

1. You can hear the compressor running.

2. The temp setting you turn the thermostadt to starts and stops the compressor.

3. Look in your manual for a reset button and the location.

4. If you are familiar with a meter, grab the manual and check it it. But I doubt it is the resistance.

5. Sounds like a bad motor or low freon. If you have a lot of food in it, and the above didn't work, bite the bullet and call a repairman, although it sounds like much of the food is past saving if it is really defrosted.

SOURCE: Ice cream and Cool Whip are soft but ham/chicken are hard

Freezer is not cold enough probably holding about 20 degrees. Try setting your temperature up for the freezer if that doesn't help you may have a problem that needs service.

symptoms you are describing are faulty door seals, try putting a thin piece of paper between door and frame to make sure doors are sealing,also when did you do a full manual defrost??(once a year even with auto defrost)

ALARM WENT OFF ON OUR KENMORE UPRIGHT FREEZER. HOW DO WE GET IT RESET. WE HAVE PUSHED THE BUTTONS BUT RED LIGHT IS STILL ON AND FREEZER NOT RUNNING. THE PROBLEM STARTED BECAUSE WE DID NOT GET THE DOOR SHUT...


The light and alarm will remain active until the temp in the freezer is "normal" or satisfied. You should be able to push & hold the button (if electronic) until it stops. If it is a manual switch, they are usually located at the bottom of the cabinet below the door.(some are located inside the unit on the wall as well) It may be a "rocker" switch or part of the actual indicator light. Good luck

Freezer door does not close tightly.


You can try replacing the seals and or adjusting the hinges.
That may work.

Be aware that if the unit is over 10 years old it is probably using twice as much power as a new one would and costing you an extra $75 to $100 annually to run over a new unit. Could be more than that if the door seals are not tight as well.
