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.

My freezer is located in a garage that is staying hot in these 90 degree temps. I just heard a noise coming from it, looked and stuff was thawing. Husband unplugged and noise has stopped fills like cold...


I would first check to make sure the the condenser coils are free of debri and there is not something against the fan.

Did the noise sound electrical or mechanical or a hiss. A hiss is most likely a freon leak or a compressor blown (usually not worth repairing). A mechanical sound could be something blocking a moving part like a fan. Electrical could mean about anything.

I would check the condenser grill and then plug it back up and try to tell where the noise was coming from.

It seems that the temp more often goes up to 20-30's and that food is not as frozen when I check it. When temp goes up I check it for next couple of minutes and usually within 10 min the temp is back down...


This is normal. All commercfial freezers must defrost 3 to 5 times a day, or they will freeze over at the coil and then stop freezing. A timer in your freezer turns off the compressor and turns a heating element on for 10 to 15 minutes. During that time the coil heats and melts frost from the coil. Usually within 30 minutes the temperature will briefly rise to 20 t0 25 degrees F and then quickly drop down to 0 degrees F. The food rarely defrosts in this short period of time..

I have an AHT Salzburg chest freezer and it's stuck in "chilling" mode and not getting cold enough to freeze anything. It's a commercial freezer and says it has chilling and freezing modes but how do I get...


pull the plug and let it defrost. ck the drain for water. it maybe pluged. after 2 to 4 hrs. plug it back in and set the temp. to -10 degrees f . fill small dish or bowl with water and see how long it take to freez. if it takes longer then 4 hrs you may need freon or have a compreesor problem, or defrost timer .

My freeer stopped working after the temps dropped


freezers have a range of ambient temperature uses
most are plus 10c to 35c if using some units in garages etc. they just dont work...too cold for the poor things...

HELP! Frigidaire Fridge FRS26HF7BB0 losing coldness and buzzing


That noise is typical when the compresor is trying to start but it doesn't , it could be the condensing fan motor that doesn't work and the compresor goes off on overload ; a common problem with this compresors is the relay (mounted at the side of the compresor behind a black plastic cover) goes bad , this you can replace is about $20 , and if still the compresor won't start you will need to put another one and this is an expensive job.

Temperature at 10 degrees


check condenser fans, if defective or running slow change it

if condenser fan is running, suspect a compressor with internal mechanichal problems, it will run but i can't guarantee how long, maybe a couple of weeks or days. if it's an copelamic compressor, it's going bad.
