Happens. Normally, whan happens to me, I call a repair service because there is no indication what might be the failure.. Probably on the elctronic board. Maybe this is not the answer you expect but it's the only answer.
I was not able to find any info quickly on your older Kenmore in my literature but its a sure bet that it was not as efficient as the new one. You can do a calculation or look at the plate (usually on the back) that states the amperage draw on each model- the higher one is the less efficient. As for cuft you need to do the math and measure the inside storage area in inches wide, inches deep and inches tall. Multiply the width X depth X height then divide by 144 (the cu inches in a cubic ft) this will give you the actual size of the Kenmore for comparison. Hope this helps... also you may want to check with your local electric utility company as many are offering a rebate to replace 10 yr old fridge. freezers and usually pick up for free.
You have either got an internal leak or there is a bolckage in the system. switch off as soon as poss. as the gas is what keeps the comp. cool.being low on gas , comp.will eventually burn out. Quick check so that you have nothing to loose. (inspection for blockage). Look for the copper drier .At the back by the compressor. It has a 1/4 inch copper pipe on the one side and a very thin pipe on the other. Flex the thin pipe until it breaks. If gas pours out of the broken area. then its a good sign which Indicates a blockage. Decide weather it would be worth it to regas. If no gas comes out or very little, almost certainly it is an internal leak. In that case look for something else.
The freezer will cycle on it's own timer regardless of how many times you open the door. Of course it will run more often if you use the door more often. If it is defrosting as it is reqired automatically and your food is remaing frozen than I wouln't worry too much about it. You can get the complete owners manual by typing in the model # (not the manufacturer) and beside the number space, then the letters" pdf." and the word "manual" after another space. Once the choices pop up disregard all the top "sponsored" sites and start watching for a URL with the letters"pdf." and the word manual with the manufacturers name included. There you will find and be able to download the complete owners manual. Good luck, Dana
It is probably the control board and since it's new it's still under warranty so a certified Frigidaire repair man will fix it without charge. There should be a telephone number with the paperwork you received when you bought it.
you should def have a 5 year warr on your compressor( all your sealed system parts) , youll need a factory authorized company, to come ck out so if it is a sealed system repair they will honor y our warr. dont know how it works where you are but,theres got to be 12 companies just in my area willing to do that
If this is a frost free unit as I received it posted you may have a problem in that it is not frost free. The cooling coil may be frozen over stopping air circulation. There would be a defrost timer located somewhere in back. Located the clutch head screw and turn it clockwise SLOWLY until you hear one audible click. That should put the system into the defrost mode. Wait about 30 minutes in which time the system should return to the cooling mode (usually 18-22 minutes). If it does not restart the compressor after that time turn the clutch head screw clockwise again and it should restart. If you had to turn the screw the second time it would indicate a bad defrost timer. In this case replace the timer.
