Question about Kenmore 14.8 cu. ft. / 419 liter Chest Freezer 13541

1 Answer

Can I Mount Casters with Screws into Bottom of Chest Freezer?

I have a new Kenmore 14.8 Cu. Ft Chest Freezer and I would like to mount four casters on the bottom of the freezer. I am concerned about drilling holes and the length of mounting screws which might come in contact with possibly condenser or evaporator coils located in the floor of the freezer.

Do chest freezers have components located in the Floor? I know that there is condenser and evaporator coils in the sidewalls, but I have no clue as to the floor. I have looked all over the web and have found no pictures or info about Chest Freezer Floor construction.

Note: my chest freezer has no external condenser coils on the outside back side of the unit like some chest freezers.

I have noticed that commercial versions of this type of chest freezer do have casters installed on them. any info regarding this would be greatly apreciated. Thanks! Scott

    This is a good solution that I might implement but will require some welding which I am not equiped to do. I do have some friends that do weld and could use their help. Thanks for your input!

Youyr best bet would be to build a frame that the casters are welded to and there are no holes in the outer shell of the freezer. some L shaped angle would work nicely for this application and then there would be plenty of support for when the freezer is loaded up with product. Be sure that teo of the casters are lockable and two in the swivel freely.

I have a Kenmore 5 cu ft freezer that won't come on. I've checked the plug in and it works fine. Where would I start looking for the problem????


If, by plug in you mean the socket, then you need to check the fuse in the power plug next.
At the very lease there should be some light on the unit that illuminate even if it does not FREEZE.
If the compressor comes on wait to see if there is any drop in temperature. then it is possible the fuse was faulty.

see below links for more information on possible causes

    Kenmore chest freezer about three or four years old.not cooling


    Probably a freon lean and not worth repairing. You can never find the leak in a chest freezer. Recharging will buy a little time but you can never reallly trust it again.

    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.
