First make sure you have a good 9v battery installed. If it is ok then the problem will probably be in the display board or the wiring connectors between the boards. CE is communication error. If your model has the electronic tempature control instead of mechanical thermostat the problem could be in there. My bet is a bad connection at display board.

SOURCE: my freezer is not cold enough to keep food frozen...

the "e" usually means it has an error. it could be a bad temperature thermistor or a bad control board. the most likely is the board.
i hope you are less then 1 year old as the board can be quite pricey, about 150 bucks.
you could try to unplug the unit for a few minutes and then plug back in and see if the code goes away and returns to the cooling mode.

There should not be a fire hazard but you should be concerned that the freezer could break down if it is not allowed to vent the heat it produces. The freezer is not intended nor designed to be enclosed The manual must indicate specifications for minimum clearances for rear, top and sides, and may even be indicated on the big yellow sticker on the inside of the door. The clearances must be respected or again, the unit will fail, and the warranty may be voided in such cases.

SOURCE: I have a 7 year old Kenmore Upright

After you taken the back panel off and see a lot of ice forming on the coil before you use your hairdryer you should locate the timer and turn the center of the timer manually into defrost cycle. If you can see or hear the ice melting then your problem is the timer defective. Change the timer and that is all. But if it doesn't do anything then you will need a little bit more on electrical knowledge to deal with the rest on defrost temperature control and the element itself. Hope this help, God Bless.

SOURCE: My Kenmore Upright Freezer Model 25326432100 flashed "ER."

My freezer was purchased in February, 2004. It is a self defrosting freezer but ice has started forming along the bottom shelf and back wall. Also, after cleaning the freezer the other day it has stopped clycing. The freezer will stop running only if I turn it down to the #1 setting and then it will not come back on. If I turn it up to a higher setting the compressor will not stop running. It ran for over 24 hours and would not cycle unless I turned it off or set it at the #1 setting. When I unplugged it and pulled it away from the wall, there was a green water spot the size of a dinner plate underneath the freezer. Help!! Very Unhappy this freezer is only 6 years old. S in Phila.

Had a power outage for a few seconds, the control panel is not working on my refrigerator, it reads er lf.


This error means some thing is wrong with the fan to the ice maker. It might also be a bad control board. If it is still under warranty get he board replaced. Kenmore has had some problems with these particular boards. You make be able to reset board by unplugging unit for a while and plugging it back in. Hope this helps

I have a 2007 model 253.264 upright Kenmore self-defrosting freezer. The control panel on the front door stopped working. No temperature reading and no way to adjust controls. The freezer is still


I have one out in the yard that is doing the very same thing. Works good but the door display is out. I looked underneath and all of the wires seem to be connected. The main control board is on the bottom as well. The battery is also new. You must have a broken wire between that control and the main board below. I imagine it has something to do the the connector that goes through the door.

Nup right freezer model # 2532240210 I defrosted then turned back on and all the lights on outside of door is flashing is there a problem?


Does the unit have a digital control on the door? If so try unplugging the freezer for about ten seconds to reset the control. If they still flash replace the digital control. If you do not have the digital display, and its just an orange light at the bottom, then no worries they sometime flicker

We have a Kenmore freezer chest...lights come on but doesnt freeze model#253.9135381 serial #s409256481


first,have you defrosted the frzr recently?they must be defrosted manually. take the 2 screws holding the side panel on and see if you hear the compressor humming/running. if you do. then the problem is in the sealed syetem. they should to come w/a 5yr. parts & labor warrenty but it looks like your frzr was build in the 1990's...

tip: if you think it's your cold control.you could unplug unit and use a wire,jump out the cold control.
