SOURCE: Went into Kenmore Upright Freezer today to

Defrost timer/control may be defective, compressor start device may be defective, or, if this unit has the digital display on front upper portion of door, then it is bad. Give us a model number so we can look at the unit you have. What ever the prob is/was, keep close eye on unit for the next few weeks, if it is one of the above mention problems it will occur again.

You have a problem with the ADC.

Frigidaire has also jumped into the market with an adaptive defrost board. The fresh food section light switch and light bulb must work. To initiate a defrost cycle, open the door and push the light switch in and out 5 times within 6 seconds. The compressor and fans should shut off and the defrost heater should come on. Open the door and push the light switch in and out 5 times within 6 seconds to remove the refrigerator from the defrost mode and back into a cooling mode.



This product comes equipped with an Adaptive Defrost Control (ADC). To activate manual defrost, press and hold the Freezer temperature UP (WARMER) key while pressing the Fresh Food temperature DOWN (COLDER) key 5 times within 6 seconds. A "d" in the freezer temperature window and "F" in the refrigerator temperature window will display when the heater is activated. To deactivate manual defrost, press and hold Freezer temperature UP (WARMER) key while pressing the Fresh Food temperature DOWN (COLDER) key 5 times within 6 seconds. "d" and "F" will be displayed until the defrost cycle is complete. (approx. 8 minutes)

Water coming out of the lid of a Kenmore 5 cu. Freezer


Funny. We just spent an hour trying to figure out the same problem with our Kenmore. It is the third or fourth time that we've noticed water on the floor under the freezer, but the first time that we've been able to track it to the lid.

The only thing that makes sens to me is that this problem may be happening when our freezer has a frost buildup around the top of the unit which doesn't allow the lid to close perfectly snug. I'm thinking that this causes a bit of melt in whatever frost may be inside the lid from regular air circulation around the unit. It runs out the back of the lid when it opens.

Check that there is no frost around the rim of the freezer that may be causing a slight (it only takes a very small opening to allow warmer air to circulate under the lid) irregularity in the lid seal.

Kenmore Upright Freezer Works Sometime


try a new start relay and overload kit specifically for the make and model freezer you are working on. if compressor can be seen ,the numbers on it can be used to get correct oem start cap, relay ,and overload. if your unit is having starting problems that will usually fix it. if however, the stat is failing to bring it on a new stat is called for. but it sounds like it is having starting problems since you said it was off a long while then still struggled on the overload to start then finally did. if the new start components don't work then new freezer time. compressor replacement is to expensive anymore. good luck

Kenmore upright freezer


It is best to unplug the unit, open the door fully and let stand 24 hrs. to thoroughly defrost. Empty the drain pan if so equipped.
Wipe out interior with a dry cloth, then locccck or otherwise secure the door so that it cannot open. Place a moving cart on the non-hinge side to transport it, and never lay it on its back.

Chest freezer lid


Vacuum is caused by contraction of air. If your temperatures are being maintained the difference in how easily the lid opens and closes is not a point to worry about. If the lid wont shut after it is opened you do have a problem. If the lid is staying open at one corner try, with the lid open give it a slight twist pulling on the corner that is not closing fully. This action should spring the lid back to its original sealing position.
