Question about Kenmore Freezer 20.6 cu. ft. Upright Freezer
Hi. I bought a used Kenmore freezer upright model 253.9280412 and after plugging it in and running it for 5-6 hours, it reached about 10 degrees and seemed to be stuck here. At a temp setting of 1 it just ran and ran and never got below 10 deg. As I backed the temp control down toward OFF, it finally cycled off. Shortly there after it came on again and continued to cycle at around 12-14 degrees. It would run for 4 minutes and off for 4 minutes. It did eventually go into defrost for about a 1/2 hour then came back on and ran unitl back to 12 deg. The freezer was empty with no food cause I want to make sure it's OK before I put food. Did I not leave it on long enough to reach 0 deg or so? Also there are no visible condensor coils but the sides of the freezer get very hot! I assume that the coils are there. Yes? The evap fan blows well. It's in my garage. Is it too hot in there?? Someone also left a service port on the high side so I connected a gauge and it read 165 psi or so when running. Seems normal to me. It's a 134A freezer. Help!! I have more questions but will stop here.
