Question about Kenmore Freezer 20.3 cu. ft. Frost Free Upright Freezer

1 Answer

Power Outage? Upon the slightest loss of power, my freezer will turn off. The panel light, the interior light...everything is off as if it is unplugged. NO, the unit is NOT plugged into a GFI circuit. Even a momentary flicker in our power will cause this problem to occur. To get it running again, all I need to do is unplug the unit, wait a couple of seconds, then replug. The unit is only 5 yrs old and this scares me! Thunder-storms frequently cause momentary outages in our area and if we were away, we could lose a lot of food! Any ideas?!? Thanks in advance! Jonny_L

Try lightly tapping on the cold control. No response, try tapping on the compressor. Is it clicking, trying to start? May be time for a tech. or a new freezer.

Red alarm light flashing


Good Morning Friend, thank you for allowing me to assist you!

Did your freezer previously experience a power loss? If the temperature of food rises to an unsafe level, the buzzer will sound and the red light, if equipped, will also glow. First, deactivate the alarm to your freezer by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker. It is good to wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on your freezer. After deactivating the alarm and your freezer has run approximately four hours, the red light/alarm should go off on its own. If the red light/alarm continues to stay on, your freezer may possibly have a communication problem with the control board, temperature control or a wiring harness. If this is the case, I would recommend connecting with an experienced technician to determine the underlying cause. - Z

I have a kenmore upright frost free freezer mod #253.26432100. A couple of months ago everything defrosted and the unit was not running at all. I unplugged it cleaned it and plugged it back in, it turned...


You have a problem with the ADC.

Frigidaire has also jumped into the market with an adaptive defrost board. The fresh food section light switch and light bulb must work. To initiate a defrost cycle, open the door and push the light switch in and out 5 times within 6 seconds. The compressor and fans should shut off and the defrost heater should come on. Open the door and push the light switch in and out 5 times within 6 seconds to remove the refrigerator from the defrost mode and back into a cooling mode.



This product comes equipped with an Adaptive Defrost Control (ADC). To activate manual defrost, press and hold the Freezer temperature UP (WARMER) key while pressing the Fresh Food temperature DOWN (COLDER) key 5 times within 6 seconds. A "d" in the freezer temperature window and "F" in the refrigerator temperature window will display when the heater is activated. To deactivate manual defrost, press and hold Freezer temperature UP (WARMER) key while pressing the Fresh Food temperature DOWN (COLDER) key 5 times within 6 seconds. "d" and "F" will be displayed until the defrost cycle is complete. (approx. 8 minutes)
