Question about Kenmore 12.8 cu. ft. / 362 liter Chest Freezer 13312

1 Answer

The outside of the freezer feels warm to the touch

I just received the unit in my home on Saturday, purchased on Friday. I am not sure if this is a normal or not. The inner temperature is freezing and does not appear to have any issues there.

Arctic freezer where are the coils


Some freezers don't operate with coils. If you search for that on google you might be able to find the parts manual. Your other option, assuming it is broken, is to find a replacement. http://www.refrigerationice.com/Services.html

CAN'T GET EVAPORATOR FAN TO COME ON & TEMPERTURE TO DROP.


Several possibilities. The fan won't come on until the coil inside the box on top of the freezer gets down to about 0 degrees. It also will not come on if the door is open. It sometimes takes 10 to 15 minutes to come on. If you are low on refrigerant (freon) the coil will not get cold enough to come on at all. Feel the coil on the outside of the freezer on top and see if it is very warm to the touch. If not you are probably low on refrigerant. If you have the electronic control system, it may not be sending the signal to the fans after a defrost cycle. If possible, put gauges on the valves to check your freon charge. If this unit has not been operational in a while, you might try flipping the top cover off the coils and turn the fans by hand a couple of revolutions. I have had them to seize up from not being used. The fans should turn freely.

My Kenmore 9 upright freezer feels warm on the outside, what could be the cause. I have defrosted and cleaned it already and seems to work fine. however i am concerned with the outside temperature. Please...


Hi,

This is normal. The condenser coils on freezers are typically located in the walls.

The refrigerator in your kitchen has condenser coils that are hot either under the frig or on the back. Freezers do not need as much heat transfer on the coils with the air so they put them in the walls, it is called a warm wall condenser. It may even feel hot to the touch if you happen to feel it near the end of a cooling cycle. It will be the warmest close to the compressor and cool off at it makes it around the cabinet down to the other side.

My compressor keeps kickn out, freezor will get warm


If you are fortunate, it seems to be the relay/overload assembly. On these units as the relay starts to fail the unit can run awhile and the relay gets hot. Remember that in the relay it is just two metals making and breaking that make the unit start. After awhile these wear out and the indication before complete failure is what you have. There is an outside chance the comprressor is failing. But try the relay first.

My freezer is hot!


It is normal for the freezer or fridge walls to be hot sometimes, some important points are to make sure that there is enough ventillation around the fridge/freezer, especcially the back, so that air can circulate around it freely. Also maybe just check that there hasn't been anything fallen down the back blocking the vent, and that there isn't a dust collection or anything. Otherwise as far as I know this is normal.

Freezer runs constantly


not necessarily, is it maintaining temp? all food staying frozen? especially ice creams if stored in there. most newer freezers displace the heat generated while cooling the food through copper lines running through sides of unit, helps to cut down on air temp differences between the inside (0 degrees) and outside temp to prevent moisture and possible condensation causing premature rusting of unit

Outside surfaces of freezer very hot to touch


it should be warm to the touch but not so hot you cant. and also depending on how long the freezer is running and how warm it is where the freezer is will effect how hot the outside is. the reason the outside of the freezer is hot is because thats how the freezer releses its heat from the refrigerant. the longer it runs or the harder it has to work the more heat it has to hive off. so unless the freezer is not cooling there is nothing to worry about.
