Question about Kenmore 20.6 cu. ft. Upright Freezer 2809

1 Answer

Temp display reads 92 (hi temp) but the interior temp is 0.

Unit is a new, just delivered freezer. When initially turned on, display showed an E8 error code. Unit was unplugged for a few minutes and now displays a temp of 92 F with a hi temp alarm). Unit is running with an internal temp of 0 F. Is this normal for a new unit?

No. Sounds like the intern temp sensor is bad, missing, or not connected. 92 is probably the max reading it can display. The unit will probably operate continuously, be much to cold, and cost a ton to operate. I assume you bought this from Sears. Call them to replace the freezer. Should be no problem.

    Thanks Al, contacted Sears and a new replacement is coming in early next week. No use messing with repairs on a new unit.

Hello derek143

You Said,
I have a Whirlpool upright freezer AFG 371/H there is a digital display and lights and buttons, on/off temp alarm etc running across the top of the freezer. None of this works but the freezer is still freezing. i have no idea what the temp is.

I think you should try unplugging it for 5 minutes and then try restarting it and see if it reset.

SOURCE: freezer defrost cycle

If the defrost timer sticks in the defrost mode,yes. Normal defrost time is 30 minutes or less depending upon which timer is installed.
If it happens again,locate the defrost timer and turn the dial manually to see if the compressor comes back on. If so,replace the timer.
It is probably on the rear near the compressor. Some are under the front behind the dust guard.

What does the temp display on the freezer tell me?


unless this is a dedicated freezer only and not a side by side or over/under , there's no way it's going to get down too 0 degrees inside a warm home , nope not gonna happen

also its not good for you to set this there as compressor wont cycle properly there and entire freezer will ice up , then believe it or not it will get warmer not colder wastes a lot of power as well

Traulsen G sereis 2 door freezer keeps running past set temp of "0" degrees keeps freezing all the way to -35 degrees and I have to shut it off to keep it from running? any advice??


It basically sounds like the temp sensor is not sensing the box temp that the control functions on. Other wise, the control may be stuck. Traulsen seems to have a fairly descent tech support line. Call them for steps on how to read the controller.

From what I read, the "L." that you see on the control panel indicated that the controls have been locked. According to the manual if you hold down the "alarm reset" button for 3 seconds the "L." will disappear allowing you to control the temperature again.

Green light does not come on for settings 0 to 4


the ice cream is the clue,if it goes hard then the temp is too low (ice cream best kept at -18C)

At 0F it will go off because it is at 0 so it is ok later when it warms up again it will start up and bring the temp down again. Just check your temp for a couple of days so you have it at the right temp.that you need it at. It should be OK at 0F

Kenmore Freezer Model 23041


I have an upright freezer which temp was unstable. The coils were frosted up, and the circulating fan was unable to pull air across the cooling fins.I defrosted the unit, cleaned it up, and turned it back on. Worked fine until it frosted up again. The unit was a no frost model. I had to have it serviced, and one of the defrost sensors was bad. No problems since this was fixed.
