Kenmore freezer freezes up


By the movie you have an upright freezer. The worst type any body can own. Every time you open the door cold air flows out onto the floor and is replaced by room temp air that is heavy in humidity (water vapour). This freezes into ice and the more you open the door the more ice you will get. Also if the door gaskets(seals) are not perfect you will get the same result.

We just bought a chest freezer and the suction is so tight can't open the lid .What do we need to do.


Most likely it isn't the suction but moisture on your seal freezing to the frame. Suggest a putty knife with a hair dryer blowing hot air on the blade and working it around the seal.

ICE BUILD UP ON INSIDE BACK OF FREEZER.


The air in the freezer is circulated by a fan, there are a number of possibilities
1. Is the internal fan running, this may be switched by the door opening, to test push the small switch on the door frame ( if fitted). If the fan is running go to
2. If the fan is running can you feel air coming out of the bottom of the duct inside at the bottom.
3. If there is no air coming out of the duct the duct is possibly blocked with ice, or the cooling coil at the top is iced up.
4. If there is no air flow then the best and quickest option is to empty the freezer, store your goods elsewhere, switch it off, use a wedge to keep the door partly open and leave off for at least 24 hours. You may find a large pool of water on the floor after this and you will also need to dry out the inside of the cabinet.

Icing of this type is caused by
1. Door not being closed properly, door misaligned or faulty door seals.
2. Putting "hot" product (over 2deg C / 34 deg f) into the freezer.
3. Not covering or sealing product being stored in the freezer.
4. Defrost timing not working (ask your service guy) for this and the rest I'm afraid
5. Defrost heater not working
6. Blocked condensate drain
7. Faulty thermostat, keeps on cooling

Hope this helps

Just bought Belling Chest Freezer Model BCM31 as old one was thick with ice, but new one is frosting up very quickly as well above food line. Is this normal? Setting is right in the middle.


open the lid and using a spirit level check that the unit is flat and that its not "twisted" then using an a4 piece of paper check that the lid sits flat all round with no air leaks (the most common cause of chest freezers frosting up)if you have one, a freezer thermometer is a good investment, as you can set the unit to run at -18C,the optimum temp,,,

Water coming out of the lid of a Kenmore 5 cu. Freezer


Funny. We just spent an hour trying to figure out the same problem with our Kenmore. It is the third or fourth time that we've noticed water on the floor under the freezer, but the first time that we've been able to track it to the lid.

The only thing that makes sens to me is that this problem may be happening when our freezer has a frost buildup around the top of the unit which doesn't allow the lid to close perfectly snug. I'm thinking that this causes a bit of melt in whatever frost may be inside the lid from regular air circulation around the unit. It runs out the back of the lid when it opens.

Check that there is no frost around the rim of the freezer that may be causing a slight (it only takes a very small opening to allow warmer air to circulate under the lid) irregularity in the lid seal.

Condensation forms around the freezer opening, between the rim and the seal.


The lid is warped or the seal is bad and leaking air.
Determine which it is and replace the seal or the lid.

The vavuam seal is not sealing


these machine are not equipped with a vaccum seal.
what people here is the air flows through the two vents in the bottom of the door as it enters these vents it escapes through the drin hole in the rear of the freezer,
most of the time people hear this is when there is alot of warmer air that gets into the freezer.
the drain tube should have a small curve to it before it goes into the drain pan and there should be a small amount of water left there this is to prevent,air from flowing into the freezer.i hope this will help you.

Ice crystals forming on inside front freezer panel


Very possible the door seal is not properly sealed. Warm inflowing air onto a cold coil will cause ice build up at the lid.

Chest freezer lid


Vacuum is caused by contraction of air. If your temperatures are being maintained the difference in how easily the lid opens and closes is not a point to worry about. If the lid wont shut after it is opened you do have a problem. If the lid is staying open at one corner try, with the lid open give it a slight twist pulling on the corner that is not closing fully. This action should spring the lid back to its original sealing position.
