Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

1 Answer

Kenmore freezer model 757.7293130

1980's vintage 31.1 cu.ft. upright. No longer seems to pull a vacuum when door is closed. I know I need a new gasket, but am concerned that even w/ new gasket the freezer will not pull a vacuum. Freezer was defrosted late summer, but now frost buildup is around to perimeter. Will replacing the gasket model # 16658-000 solve the vacuum problem? Thanks in advance for your reply.

symptoms you are describing are faulty door seals, try putting a thin piece of paper between door and frame to make sure doors are sealing,also when did you do a full manual defrost??(once a year even with auto defrost)

Freezer door does not close tightly.


You can try replacing the seals and or adjusting the hinges.
That may work.

Be aware that if the unit is over 10 years old it is probably using twice as much power as a new one would and costing you an extra $75 to $100 annually to run over a new unit. Could be more than that if the door seals are not tight as well.

Kenmore Upright Freezer Model 253-9280810


is it possible the door has not been closed at some point?
If so they can build up with ice in the evaporator which the defrost system cannot handle....Try a manual defrost.
Depending on where the unit is installed high ambient temperature can drop the internal temp enough to set the alarm off though they will still freeze sufficiently

GE Upright Freezer problem/door


The door seal is damaged or the hindge alignment have allowed the warm air to enter and the cold air to leak out the of the freezer. Look and feel around the door for the cold air and check the top and bottom hinges to make sure they haven't become loose. Look for tears also around the seal because this will do the same thing. Let me know what you find. JT

Upright freezer--manual defrost


I would check that the door gasket makes good contact with the cabinet. If it does then I would check the temp inside the cabinet. If you have large buildups of ice on the evaporator coils then I would suggest defrosting the freezer and see if that makes a difference. Hope this helps.
