Question about Frigidaire Freezers
The freezer isn't freezing but is blowing cool air. It used to make a sucking/sealing sound when it closed and now it doesn't and the air is cold enough for refrigeration but not freezing.
SOURCE: kenmore upright freezer.
Will need a little more information to assist you with answers. Will need the model number if available for you Kenmore and will usually be on inside Freezer/refrigerator door and near bottom. Will look like model #363.1234567 for example.
Now if it's not cooling at all, is the compressor running beneath the fridge? Is the condenser fan running that is below the freezer and near the compressor? Is the evaporator fan blowing air in the freezer section? Do you hear clicking noises in the compressor area and can you feel the compressor to see if you feel warm or hot to touch around its side and top? Can you tell me of any other things that you noticed before the refrigerator stopped working? Is the temp control digital or manual settings? Has the settings been changed since you turned the refrigerator off and then back on? Thanks, Sea Breeze

Sounds like the system is low on freon. The other common problem is a dirty condenser. Insure the condenser is clean, if it is. You will need to charge the system with freon. Which only a qualified refrigeration tech should do.

It sounds like the unit is low on freon or the compressor is going bad. You have several other components that could be affecting this as well. Make sure the coils are free from dust and clean underneath. This is a bit premature for you to have problems now, especially since it is a Sears product.

I'm Not a pro, but the comments refer to a refrigerator. I don't think they read your problem from start to finish. I went to RSI in Phoenix, and I would say it is low on refrigerant. I hope it's 134a.
Over the years the freon sloowly leaks out, it might need only an ounce or two but it will fix it in my opinion. I have the same problem with mine.

Check temp. in freezer shoud be 0 to -5 Deg. Check condensor if dirty clean some units had a recall on diers cap.tube to far in dier also check for ice on back wall if icedup check defrost heater and defrost timer check evap. fan make sure it's turning.
