I have a Kenmore 5 cu ft freezer that won't come on. I've checked the plug in and it works fine. Where would I start looking for the problem????

If, by plug in you mean the socket, then you need to check the fuse in the power plug next.
At the very lease there should be some light on the unit that illuminate even if it does not FREEZE.
If the compressor comes on wait to see if there is any drop in temperature. then it is possible the fuse was faulty.

see below links for more information on possible causes

Where do i find the temperature control?

If your unit has a cold control it would most likely be on the side of the chest freezer near the front bottom. If you can find your complete model number from the tag on the freezer I could find out for you for sure.

1991 Kenmore 16 model 253 in storage for 7 years. Plugged it in and turned it nn last night and seemd to run fine, nice and quiet just like before. Today it is not cold and the comressor seems to be r

If the freezer was stored and not running for 7 years it may have lost coolant.  Since the compressor is running recharging the coolant may fix the problem.  Hot compressor might indicate low coolant since its motor is immersed in it.

Can my kenmore chest freezer be in the garage during hot summers and cold winters in Minnesota?


You can put a fridge/freezer in the garage. Be sure that the area is level so you don't warp the case which will cause sealing problems with the gasket. Also, clean the condenser frequently as dust and dirt will reduce efficiency.
