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

1 Answer

Digital display and computer board needs to be replaced

Alarm goes off and display alternates between CE and temperature and according to manual a contact service technician is required.We have done this and have found out that it will cost over $300. to fix.This Kenmore Freezer was purchased from Sears Aug/07 for $700.
Unfortunately for me I did not purchase an extended warranty and the warranty was only good for 1 year (6 mo. now past) As Sears has basically told me this freezer was made by Fridaire and I didn't get the exended warranty Oh well .I would like to know if this is an on going problem as I have been told by someone else they had the same problem.Did I buy a lemon

No, not necessarily a lemon. With the higher percentage of electronic controls being used in appliances these days it happens - and is no small cost. My advice to you is bite the bullet and DON'T repair it, buy a new one, with an extended service warranty.

My kenmore upright freezer has a digital display that shows alarms. it is showing a ff and a ce code. can you tell me what they mean?


You have a bad freezer fan and need to replace it. The fan is located behind the back wall INSIDE the freezer. The unit will warm up a little because the air wont circulate the way it is supposed to. You can try unplugging fridge for 30 seconds to reset the control board u can do it yourself although I don't recommend it because u need actual diagnosis but this seems it hope it helps try buying part from sears or amazon

Freezer alarm


Hi Clair, thank you for allowing me to assist you.

When the refrigerator is beeping or buzzing, it may be a warning sign of a possible malfunction or an unsafe, interior temperature. To silence the buzzer, you can depress the ALARM OFF button. However, if you have already done this, try unplugging the unit or flipping the household circuit breaker for about ten minutes.

If the alarm continues, it could possibly be experiencing a communication problem with the temperature control/board or wiring failure. I would recommend connecting with a professional appliance tech for a clear-cut diagnosis.

My freezer hi temp alarm was going off now it intermittently works 16.7 cu. ft and alarm goes off again


Hi Joseph, I am happy to assist you. 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 by unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker. Wait approximately ten minutes and then turn on the unit. 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 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.

MY FREEZER5 ALARM GOES OFF BUT THE FREEZER IS RUNN[NG AND THE TEMP IS 32 o


Fault in the controller board as it must be tripping off the alarm without the sensor giving the signal.
You will need to check the conttroller board for sorting out , other wise just disconnect the alarm as the freezer working and the thermostat is controlling the temperature correctly

Kenmore Freezer display alternating between temperature and CE


Our techs at our shop could not figure this out either but since the Kenmore was made my Frigidaire and we were Frigidaire warranty we called them.

This is what they had to say:

The code stands for bad wiring. In other words, there is a wire broke, corroded, etc. The wire problem is normally near the bottom hinge. The solution is to find the problem wire or if its in the door replace the entire door. Our service guys had found the problem wire near the alarm's power source.

Hope this helps!

Frigidaire Upright freezer with Beeping Display


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.
