Look at the old heater. There should be clips holding it to the evaporator coil. Also follow the wires and disconnect them. You may want to unplug the unit first.

Contact shop, less than a year old they are responsible for repairs / replacement. Have you read instructions to make sure that you have done all that you should regarding any draining of system thet is required.

I have a Kelvinator upright freezer model k330uf the bottom section does not work


Sounds like its got blockage.
There is a channel that allows cold air to "fall" into the bottom chamber. There is also a return. Typically the "fall" chamber is choked with either something that fell in and was trapped, frozen solid with ice or algie has grown and closed the hole.
The best thing to do is empty it completely and inspect the drop channel.
Put all your frozen goods in ice chests to keep them from thawing out.
Good Luck.

Ice on back wall of freezer, food not staying completely frozen


Do you have the complete model number from the tag on the freezer, it should be either on the bottom rail visible with the door open or on the side wall near the front. I am trying to look this up to see if it is an automatic defrost model, if so you may need to do more than just unthaw and adjust

Thanks

My Kenmore freezer, model #253.9280212 runs but will not cool below 40 degrees. It runs all the time but I do not hear anything cut on and off. The freezer is 10 years old but looks brand new.


The first thing to check is door gasket< bad corners,gap in side,bottom or top. Close door on a dollar bill and try to slide it top to bottom side to side and if it slides fairly easy then seal is not doing good. If you find dirty area clean it off along with the cabinet side as well.If you find the side is leaking then heat gasket with hair dryer and apply vasoline to gasket to help it move freely. If you find tear or hole then replace it.

The freezer defrosts every day. the puddle is from that. It is supposed to go into a pan at the bottom and evaporate. You need to look at the pan and determine if it has a hole or the drain hose is leaking somewhere.
