Kenmore freezer depleting 9 volt batteries, setting off alarm

The low battery alarm on our Kenmore freezer #253.23082100 keeps going off every 6 days, so we keep replacing the 9 volt battery. Only other symptom is small amount of icy build-up on the floor of the interior.
Help!!!!!

    An alarm triggered by a clogged water inlet or faulty defrost element could be reset with a new 9 volt battery? This unit doesn't have a drain tube, more of a gutter that looks to catch moisture from the back wall.  FYI, I did replace the electronic control board, located behind the alarm panel at the top of the door. Also, someone mentioned the electric board.  Thoughts?


    I do have a mechanical background and would be interested in trying to check the defrost element and/or evaporator tray. Suggestions?

Trojo50,
your defrost elements are not working or the water inlet for the evaporator tray is clogged. That alarm is to let you know something else has triggered it. This could be s imple DYI solution or require a service call. let me know if you are up for the DYI.

Hi James.

Most Kenmore upright freezers use a backup battery located at the lower part of the appliance. When the battery is low the freezer will beep continuously. If the unit has been off for a long time, and if the unit uses a battery, then the battery may need replacement.

Here a picture of the battery in its housing, located in the lower front part of the freezer.

The alarm keeps going off, however it is cold inside and seems to be working. The display had .2.0.5. flashing on it. Any idea. Could it be the 9 volt battery back up?

Freezer alarm stuck on - can't reset


Hi: Does the freezer have a battery backup for the electronics? A 9v. battery in the grill down below. You won't have to remove the grill but pull a small rectangular panel to expose the battery. High end Kenmore freezers have a battery to back up the alarm. The six you see is actually supposed to be a "b" for battery most likely. L.E.D.'s are tough to tell the difference. Buy an new battery and all will be well. I hope this helps, Jeff

Low temp alarm goes off on Kenmore upright freezer


The alarm is there for a reason. I wouldn't disconnect it. Maybe the compressor is low on gas. If your thermostat is on extremely low, try moving it up to a less cold position. Look in your owner's manual for recommended settings.

Failing that, get ready to shell out some bucks to the service man!

If the yellow light is flashing it may mean that the 9 volt battery is dead.

On my Kenmore there's a small battery compartment on the bottom right of the unit - under the door.

You can take the batteries out that power the alarm system. They are located through a small access panel/door front bottom right of the unit. If you bought the unit at Sears, you should call 1-800-4MYHOME and ask a technician if a replacement manual is available, or if they can direct you to a website for it.
