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

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore upright freezer-model LFFH2067DW2 -the red light has been on for at least 12 hours and the freezer is defrosting-water is leaking on the floor-there is a vent insidethe freezer and the metal above it is hot-I assume this is part of the defrost feture. The manual does not tell if this is normal or how long it takes to defrost the freezer or how to stop water from running on the floor--the freezer is blowing cold air at times--how do I stop the water on the floor and is this normal defrost?

Hi,

I was made aware of your concern and would like to offer a few ideas you may want to consider. Water dripping down is not a leak during defrost condition as this would be the ice melting. Normally, there would be a drain hose specifically to channel the melted ice/water to a drainage system. The amount of water would then be proportional to the amount of ice melting as with the length of time to completely melt, drain away.

Perhaps you could check the filter/drain screen as well as the drain opening for any blockage/clogging. You could also try checking the same on the drain hose as well as for possible kinks. Additionally, there would be a sensor behind a boxy cover that triggers the system back into operation. If there is still melted ice/water inside the freezer, then the sensor would prevent the unit from turning on completely. You may want to check this sensor and verify that it is dry.

An exploded parts diagram would help you identify/locate the above mentioned parts.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Kenmore refrigerator with a bottom freezer leaks water on floor


Hello Wayne,
You already mentioned the reason for the excess water. When the freezer automatically defrosts itself once every 24 hours the melted water drains down through a tube down to a water pan at the bottom of the refrigerator where it sits and supposedly evaporated by the fan back into the atmosphere. However in your case the excessive dust is preventing the evaporation phase to occur by the fan. You need to vacuum as much of the dust as possible and your problem will disappear.
Good Luck

Ridare freezer alarm goes off and it wont freeze ice c ream


Hello grega1959 - 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 the unit. This can be done by either by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker. Wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on the freezer. After deactivating the alarm and the unit has run approximately four hours, the red light/alarm should go off on its own. If the red light/alarm continues to stay on, the freezer may possibly have a communication problem with the temperature control, control board, or a wiring harness. If this is the case, I would recommend connecting with a professional appliance tech for a clear-cut diagnosis.

Red and Orange light staying on on my whirlpool chest freezer


try a total defrost,to clear any internal ice(every 12 months)then switch on and if you have a rapid freeze button leave on for 24 hours to get back to normal operating temp.if you have hard ice around the door seals then you have an air leak which you must sort out(try using a hot cloth to warm seals back into shape.....seals should fit all round, all the time.

Freezer is on and just stopped working


you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model
