Check the relay located on the compressor on the back of the unit. Sounds like the relay is not completely shutting down the compressor. Almost like it is still allowing electrical currents to get to the compressor

Kenmore upright freezer does not shut off until door is opened. freezer seems to work well.


Going by the service manual it seems that everything is fine. The fan is supposed to run while the door is shut and the compressor is supposed to run 12 hours and then a 30 min defrost cycle comes on then the cycle starts over again. I am posting the service manual, parts and wiring diagram for you to view if you so choose. https://files.acrobat.com/a/preview/8a6d6ca4-04b6-4cfa-b435-3980042b3ad3

My freezer start only a few sec. After 10minutes start again


Roy,
Sounds like something is causing your compressor to kick the overload. It could be the overload itself or it could be the start relay or it could be a locked compressor. Probably best to call a service tech.

I have a kenmore upright freezer model 253.9280415 serial WB10612377 that shuts it self off


You would have to find a local refrigerator repair shop or find a new part from the manufacturer. You may be able to find a service manual online someplace and reset the computer. You could try unpluging the power and waiting five min, plug back in and see if that works.

It does sound like the thermostat is acting up. It could also be a defrost timer if it is a frost free model. The timer could be running slow and remaining in defrost longer than it is designed to. Thermostat can get erretic also and work fine sometimes nad then not work correctly another. When it is shut off after cycling off tap the thermostat. if it comes back on thgis could be your problem.

Everything in our freezer is frozen solid except for the ice cream which is soft and mushy, the freezer is only about 3-4 years old and we checked and it is turned up to the coldest setting, any ideas what...


If this is a self defrosting model make sure that you don't have frost build up on the back wall of the freezer causing the air not to circulate like it should. If you do have frost build up other items will eventually start thawing as well. If this is the case you have a defrost problem.

If this is not a self defrosting model then make sure it does not need defrosting.

You normally will notice ice cream being soft before you notice other things thawing.

Also make sure the door is shutting good and you may try putting the ice cream in a different location.

if the doors shut okay,and there is no frost,and it is maintaining a steady internal temp(-18C to -20C) why worry.......anything else is going to cost money.......

Kenmore Upright Freezer Works Sometime


try a new start relay and overload kit specifically for the make and model freezer you are working on. if compressor can be seen ,the numbers on it can be used to get correct oem start cap, relay ,and overload. if your unit is having starting problems that will usually fix it. if however, the stat is failing to bring it on a new stat is called for. but it sounds like it is having starting problems since you said it was off a long while then still struggled on the overload to start then finally did. if the new start components don't work then new freezer time. compressor replacement is to expensive anymore. good luck

Dead Upright Frigidaire Freezer


YOU MOST LIKELY HAVE A FREON LEAK AND RUNNING THE FREEZER WITHOUT FREON IN IT WILL KILL THE COMPRESSOR UNLESS YOU UNPLUG IT AND GET IT FIXED,THE COILS ON MOST FREEZERS ARE IN THE SIDE WALLS SO YOU DON'T HAVE TO CLEAN THEM LIKE ON YOUR FRIG.HOPE THIS HELPS-MIKE

FREEZER ALARM WILL NOT SHUT OFF


Use a freezer thermometer and tell me the actual temperature. Or at least store some ice cream and see if it stays brick hard. Unless I have some idea of the actual temp I can't tell if defective freezer or alarm
