You should unplug the freezer until someone can check the start relay and run capacitor. Kenmore has a model number like this example=> 321.2468102 can you get me that model number so I can look up the parts I am describing? Someone with an OHM meter need to do this test on the compressor prior to replacing these parts. Unplug the refrigerator and remove the back panel that covers the compressor. There should be 3 wires going inside the cover of the compressor. Mark all 3 and mark their location so if compressor is OK you can put them back in same order. The plastic cover may snap on and you may need to squeeze the sides to unlock the cover and sometimes there is a metal clip holding the cover in place. Remove the cover. May look hard but it's simple. There will be three connections under the cover and 2 will go through the start relay. Unplug them leaving the three prongs exposed. They may be marked R =Run, S=Start and C=Common. Set your meter on continuity and then begin by testing 2 at a time until you have checked S to R and R to C an C to S and S to R again. You should get a reading all the way around. If no reading between any of the pairs as you go around you should get no reading between any two the compressor has an open winding and is defective. Then if it passes that test then touch one probe to R and the other to the copper pipes or clean metal on outside of compressor, then S to metal outside and C to metal outside. If you get a reading this way even just a little. The compressor is a burnout. Then let me know what you find. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Unless you are changing the compressor don't change any wiring. A live phase comes from the thermostat which goes to the c (common) and the neutral phase goes to a relay which sits over s (start) and r (run.) It doesn't matter if the live and neutrals are reversed.

Hums seconds only does not freeze


If it hums then quits and hums and quits and just keeps doing this then either the compressor start relay is burned out or the compressor is seized. Unless you are capable of diagnosing this you should have a tech check it out. If it's just a relay they are relatively cheap, but if it's the compressor it could cost more than the freezer is worth.

If the compressor is overheating I would check the condensor fan and make sure it's turning. Sounds like you wouldn't have noticed this already though. Also, if the compressor is turning on for 5 or 10 seconds and then clicking off then your start relay is probably bad. Pull the relay off the compressor and shake it. If something is loose inside then it's bad. That is, if it's a whirlpool made kenmore. Kenmore doesn't make appliances they only brand them. The refrigerator could have been made by Whirlpool, Frigidaire, GE, LG, Maytag, Amana, or other. So, it's depenant on who made it.
