Question about Kenmore Freezer 20.3 cu. ft. Frost Free Upright Freezer

1 Answer

We have a 20.3 cubic feet Kenmore upright frost free freezer we purchased in May 2003. We noticed the meat was beginning to thaw one afternoon. We hit the quick freeze button and that seemed to fix the problem for awhile. Just opened the freezer and the temperature was close to 32. I listened all day for the motor to kick on but no luck. I turned the dial in the freezer, no motor or fan would come on. I unplugged it and plugged it back in, the motor ran for a very short time. The only way It works is when you push the quick freeze button. What is going on? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

This sounds like a bad thermostadt, since the quick freeze button does work. But it should be much colder than 32 degrees. It may also be the motor, since it runs for brief periods of time after plugging it back in.

I'd say best bet here is to call a repairman. (sorry...)

Frigidaire frost free contents are thawing


Check your t'stat setting. If it is older than 10 years it is probably the compressor. As cheap as they are now, you would be better off with a new one. Labor and compressor would run an easy 200 dollars. Then you would looking at other things breaking after that.

Kenmore upright freezer


reason is that the evaporator is blocked with ice and hence no air circulation.
either
switch off for 24 hours with doors open
or
remove back panel inside freezer and melt ice off with a hairdryer

Meat freezer burns


Hi,tomonbow
ngafm at your service,

You said,you are getting freezer burn in only two days, right?

Are you putting the meat in proper freezer bags and squeezing
air out as you zip lock the bag?
If you do not use proper freezer bags you will always get freezer burn on meats!

WAIT ! This will not happen in two days!
Seems to me something else has happened to your meat prior to your purchase and it probably is not the freezer at fault.

If it happens to meat that you feel was not frozen when you bought it, check with the store of purchase to see if it came into them frozen before it was put in their refrigerator case!
Most super markets receive cases of frozen meat and then put them in the walk in refrigerator, or refrigerator case to present them for sale to the customers and they defrost in the case.

Then we think we are buying meat that is fresh and never been frozen!
Fresh meat will not freezer burn in 2 days unless it has happened previously to the time you bought it.

Also when you freeze any meat you buy, repack it in proper freezer bags and not just any zip lock bag!

But I believe it happened before you bought it.
And i'll bet it all came from the same store.
that's why some people shop at a butcher shop or Costco type store where the meat is fresher and sells out faster!
Bless you.

Please give me a good rating before you sign off.
Thank You.
Let me know the verdict. I think I'm right on target!
Do some investigating and ask the store some hard questions!
