Working ff freezer unplugged 1 year now does not freeze

Because of lost of food due to hurricane I cleaned and unplugged my Kenmore frost free freezer for approximately 6 months. Now freezer seem to work fine (fan, motor, and compressor) but does not freeze food. The problem is that it keeps food at refrigerator temperature. Freezer is now unplugged because of the problem with the temperature in the freezer.

Check condenser clean and fan working. Check it's not frozen solid because you've been running it full pelt; if it is, fully defrost it then set it at a mid range setting.

Lost vacumn, door popped open alarm on


If is the type of freezer where the shelves are also the evaporator(shelves are very cold and is normal to frost), the fact that only one shelf is iced would indicate the system is low on freon due to a leak. This would also explain the hot walls and compressor. It requires a service man to check the freon level and locate leak and recharge.

Problem with upright freezer not freezing


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.

Check to see if there is a reset on the compressor or close to it. Turn your control knobs up and down and see if you hear a "click". You might cause it to engage at that point. Let me know how this does.

Not all shelves freezing Alarm on


If this is not a frost free unit. I say replace it. I don't believe in recharging a deep freeze. You can never really trust them again. The food inside is worth more than the freezer. If this is a frost free unit, See if the fan inside is working. This can also be a defrost system proplem such as a timer and well worth fixing.

Check these two things first.  1.  Is there a thick frost buildup on the back panel at the bottom half of the freezer?  2.  Do you hear the fan running inside the freezer?  Let me know what you find.
