Question about Kenmore 20.3 cu. ft. / 575 liter Upright Freezer 23024

Open Question

Mod#970220416 The alarm is going off erratically, sometimes all day and night, with no discernible rhythm. Then, other days it's completely quiet. Yet other days, it bursts out into beeping, a few times, then stops. The button to manually turn off the alarm does nothing.  All the while, the internal temp seems fine. I want to disable the alarm. Do you have a schematic electrical drawing of this freezer? My dad is able to work on it, but we need to know where to go! Thanks.

SOURCE: low temp alarm goes off on Kenmore upright freezer

The alarm is there for a reason. I wouldn't disconnect it. Maybe the compressor is low on gas. If your thermostat is on extremely low, try moving it up to a less cold position. Look in your owner's manual for recommended settings.

Failing that, get ready to shell out some bucks to the service man!

SOURCE: The alarm keeps going off. Food is frozen fine just alarm

That alarm is there for a reason. Grab your owner's manual and see the different things it can mean. If the gas is getting low, that could be it, and you'll want to solve it as early as you can.

Sometimes a power surge or brown out can make that alarm go off. Try unplugging it for 5 minutes.

SOURCE: won't freeze

Is the compressor running the whole time? If so may have a problem with a refridgerant leak....check the compressor in the rear of unit, feel if its hot....may be as simple as a relay.

SOURCE: Temp Alarm going off, when freezer seems to be cooling fine.

You need to check the temp in the freezer to make sure it's down to around 10 degrees. The alarm will go off much above that.

My high temp alarm has been on all day


the warming up will be because the unit is not operational and the door hasn't been opened
call a service technician and check for a failed start/run capacitor for the compressor
the high temp alarm indicates that the food is in danger of spoiling

The freezer alarm won't go off.


Possibly a problem with one of the components in the automatic defrost system in the freezer then.. this is the only reason why the alarm would keep sounding. Perhaps some of the moisture from the defrost has gotten in and damaged the electricals somehow. It might be worth it to store your freezer contents elsewhere and completely defrost the freezer and then heat the inside cabinet up with a hair dryer or something similar. This will dry out the cabinet and the electrical components. Once the freezer has warmed up let it stand for as long as possible with the doors open so that it reaches room temperature and then close the doors and switch back on. If this doesn't work you probably need a service engineer visit.

Is your compressor kicking on? If not then check the contactor-relay and the capacitor. If that isn't the problem then it is probably your compressor. Which is quite expensive to replace.

I have a Whirlpool side by side fridge freezer (brand new only 2 days old) the alarm is going off and the two lines side by side on the freezer side are flashing?


The alarm is set off when the freezer is out of the differential range of the setpoint. In other words, the freezer is still too warm. If you press the alarm button, the sound will stop but the light will stay on. If the unit is working correctly and cooling properly, this light should go out once the cabinet temperature gets close to the setpoint temperature. Hope this helps you.
