Kenmore 15.2 upright freezer coils freezing up

I have a Kenmore 15.2 upright model# 1067381540 and the coiils have frozen up. I have checked the defrost heater and it has continuity. So I'm guessing Bi-metal defrost therm. This has happened 1 other time about 2 yrs. ago. I unplugged the freezer, let it defrost and plugged it back up. It's been working since. What do you think?

    Ok, If the bi-metal and defrost heater were ok, the timer needed changed.
    You should be ok.

Loud clanging noise from Kenmore upright freezer


Check the condenser fan (outside at the rear) and check the coil isn't baking hot. Electronics or board wouldn't cause your symptoms. Check the simple things first!

Freezer not freezing


If you can hear the motor running it could be the thermostat that has gone or if there is no noise at all it could be the motor that has died, a good easy fix ( sometimes works ) is to turn the freezer off leave it for 24 hours with no power then try turning it on again.

My Kenmore upright freezer, serial #WB95125779, model #253.9284213, is not freezing my food? All of my frozen food was spoiled. Can anybody give me any solutions?


You may need freon, or your compressor has died. Either way you need a service guy. Sears has their own service people. It may be under warranty.

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

Problem with upright freezer not freezing


It sounds like the unit is low on freon or the compressor is going bad. You have several other components that could be affecting this as well. Make sure the coils are free from dust and clean underneath. This is a bit premature for you to have problems now, especially since it is a Sears product.

Kenmore Upright Freezer Model 253-9280810


is it possible the door has not been closed at some point?
If so they can build up with ice in the evaporator which the defrost system cannot handle....Try a manual defrost.
Depending on where the unit is installed high ambient temperature can drop the internal temp enough to set the alarm off though they will still freeze sufficiently
