Question about Kenmore Freezers
Just installed a new compressor on a Kenmore upright and the suction line is frosting back to the compressor. Doesn't matter if it is 0 psi or 15 psi on the low side. Everything else seems to be working at about 4psi on the low but can't stop the frost.
Your suction line has to have no frost at all.it should be cool/warmer. You fridge is overcharged with refrigerant.

Check these two things first. 1. Is there a thick frost buildup on the back panel at the bottom half of the freezer? 2. Do you hear the fan running inside the freezer? Let me know what you find.

SOURCE: kenmore upright freezer.
Will need a little more information to assist you with answers. Will need the model number if available for you Kenmore and will usually be on inside Freezer/refrigerator door and near bottom. Will look like model #363.1234567 for example.
Now if it's not cooling at all, is the compressor running beneath the fridge? Is the condenser fan running that is below the freezer and near the compressor? Is the evaporator fan blowing air in the freezer section? Do you hear clicking noises in the compressor area and can you feel the compressor to see if you feel warm or hot to touch around its side and top? Can you tell me of any other things that you noticed before the refrigerator stopped working? Is the temp control digital or manual settings? Has the settings been changed since you turned the refrigerator off and then back on? Thanks, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Not Freezing, but cold
The thermostat should be a close circuit when requesting cold temps. or when asking the compressor to come on. The exterior surface on some freezers warm when asking for cold inside. Yours has a condenser coil on the back and that should warm when cooling. If compressor is runningit should be wrm if no freon has leaked from freezer somewhere.
The defrost timer should rotate clockwise during the day and give approx. 3 defrost daily or about every 8 hours. Until the thermostat is resolved and asks for a closed circuit the compressor will not come on. Unplug freezer from outlet,remove thermostat wires, then turn the thermostat to its coldest setting and check again. If no closed circuit the thermostat will need replaced first. Hope this has helped you, Sea Breeze

SOURCE: Ice build-up
Defected DEFROST HEATER can cause frost build up on the panel at the back of the freezer,and freezer stop cooling and ice frozen on unit so air could not flow to refrigerator side.Water will coming out caused of unbalanced freezing,and causing the flooding of water in the floor. You must change this defroster heater assembly so it will works normal again..
Hope this may help;
