Our Kenmore 253.28432801 is just over 5 years old. It stopped freezing, and the Sears tech says it has a leak and needs coils and a condenser. This would be $618, he suggested we buy a new freezer. Co


If it's holding at 28 degrees, it's not the coils. See if dropping the temp does any thing to lower the temp. If it does, fine. If not, most likely just the control needs replaced or just cleaned.

We ve had the Bosch fridge-freezer (KGU3201GB/01) for about 10 years. Suddenly this morning the freezer started losing temperature, which rose to -13 degrees and the alarm went off. We put the...


Hi Robert, sounds like the unit is not defrosting.

Try this to indicate defost issues.
1. relocate food in the freezer, turn the unit off for 2 days and leave the door open, this will allow total defrost.
2. clean, then restart unit with door closed, after and every 2 hours check temp, I feel you may find it will get to its operating temp reasonably fast and should stay there.

If this is the case, I suspect the defrost heater element has failed and needs replacing, this is the most common cause of your type of issue.

Hope that helps and please dont forget to vote. Regards Russ

    Problems with the temperature dropping quickly


    Sounds like a refrigerant charge problem.

    Temperature swing specification in a chest freezer.


    It depends on the control that your freezer utilizes.

    If your temp control dial has the numbers 0-9 or 1-9, then you have whats commonly known as a coil temp sensor.


    Unlike an air temp contol that measure the air temp inside the freezer and comes on and off with a 3-5° swing, the coil temp sensor runs a little bit different.

    With a coil temp control or sensor, the temp control has a capillary tube and bulb that is inserted into the coil either at on of the ends down a guidetube or just into the center of the radiator type fins. This temp control measures the temperature of the coil, and not the temperature of the air inside the freezer. When the unit runs, the coils typically gets 20° colder than the air temp. And when the control satisfies (shuts off), it will not call for cooling again until the sensing bulb has reached the cut-in point which is typically well above design box temp.


    So, to quickly answer your question, yes it is possible to have a 25° temp swing and not have anything really wrong with the unit. That is how its been designed to operate and that is how it will operate. Your only option (although not recommended) is to replace the coil temp sensor with and air temp control. That will give you more consistent temps.


    Also, when taking temp of a freezer with a coil temp sensor, be sure to temp the product in the freezer and not the air temperature.

    TEMPERATURE FALLING TO -9. AFTER DEFROSTING ALRIGHT FOR ABOUT 3 DAYS THEN BEGINS TO ICE UP IN TOP COMPARTMENT AND TEMP DROPS AGAIN. .


    You probably need the defrost clock. I can hook you up. You just have to find where it is. When it works rite it melts the ice build up off the coil several times a day. I'm @northeastclng

    Temperature has dropped from a normal 18 degrees


    The only thing that will make it cool to low is a thermostat. They wear out and get out of calibration. Check to be sure the temp sensor from the thermostat is tight on the mount. Its the little tube that connects to the evaporator that makes the thermostat work.

    Freezer due to brown out then power restored now low temp alarm


    The light should reset itself when the freezer gets to less then 18 degrees. If it is still above 18 degrees it will stay on. Now if it is cooler then 18 degrees then unplug the unit for 1 minute and plug it back in once you are sure that it is below 18 degrees. But do not rule out the thermostat. It could have blown out when the brownout happened. To test it jump the wires together and see if the freezer comes on and goes off
