Question about Kenmore 13.7 cu. ft. / 388 liter Upright Freezer 23429
I have two problems: the freezer motor doesn't seem to be cutting off. Both sides of the freezer are very hot. And, the door is not completely shutting at the top of the freezer. Can the problems with the door not shutting properly be due to the freezer is not quite sitting level, and if so, would leveling the freezer fix my door not shutting properly at the top?
If there is air getting into the freezer because the door is not sealing properly the unit will run because it is sensing it is not cold enough inside. your unit releses the heat from the refrigerant through copper tubing that runs through the cabinet, and thats why it is hot. you need to level the unit make sure the door is sealing on the top bottom and both sides ansd then the freezer will work properly and be able to shut off after it has come down to the proper temp.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello Robert - From what you have described, it seems like you may be referring to the perimeter hot tube. It is normal to be warm to the touch; however, since it may feel hot to you, I would suggest verifying that you have the proper clearances around the refrigerator. You can refer to your owner's guide for those specifications. If you do not have an owner's guide, you can download one at the manufacturer site. If the clearance is fine, you may need to clean the condenser coils. As part of routine maintenance, you can remove the toe grille (located at the foot of your refrigerator) by unsnapping the sides and lifting outward towards you. Now, using an extended vacuum attachement and condenser cleaning brush, remove dust buildup from condenser coils on left side underneath refrigerator. Cleaning condenser coils typically resolves this issue. But, if clearance is fine and the condenser coils are free from dust and you are still feeling too much exterior heat, you may need to check with a local service tech to determine what else could be causing this issue.
