Question about Kenmore 16.7 cu. ft. / 473 liter Upright Freezer 23725

1 Answer

Freezer quit (Kenmore Upright)

We accidentally left the door open a couple of inches for roughly 24 hours. The freezer no longer cools. I can hear a faint click and a very low hum (like a thermostat has clicked or something) for about 10 seconds every few minutes, but the compressor (or whatever) never kicks on and starts cooling. I cleaned it out and unplugged it overnight and tried again the next morning with the same result. Ideas?

Thanks in advance.

If the only fault was the door left open, switch off and defrost completely for 24 hours. Clean condensor coil. Restart and run for 12 hours before checking.

My Kenmore Upright Freezer Model 25326432100 flashed "ER."


My freezer was purchased in February, 2004. It is a self defrosting freezer but ice has started forming along the bottom shelf and back wall. Also, after cleaning the freezer the other day it has stopped clycing. The freezer will stop running only if I turn it down to the #1 setting and then it will not come back on. If I turn it up to a higher setting the compressor will not stop running. It ran for over 24 hours and would not cycle unless I turned it off or set it at the #1 setting. When I unplugged it and pulled it away from the wall, there was a green water spot the size of a dinner plate underneath the freezer. Help!! Very Unhappy this freezer is only 6 years old.

Left door open, closed next day, but only blowing cool air now


You will need to turn the unit off and let it completely unthaw. There is frost that builds up in the ducts and behind the panels when the door is left open that will cause the unit to not cool or circulate where needed.

Temp Alarm going off, when freezer seems to be cooling fine.


You need to check the temp in the freezer to make sure it's down to around 10 degrees. The alarm will go off much above that.

HI I HAVE AN OLD 13 CU. FT KENMORE UPRIGHT FREEZER. AFTER I DEFROSTED IT YESTERDAY AND AFTER IT HAD BEEN PLUGGED IN FOR ABOUT 6 HRS I NOTICED THAT THE SIDES OF THE FREEZER FELT VERY HOT . IS THIS NORMAL ?...


It had to run longer than normal to cool down the freezer again. The heat from the compressor running is what you feel.

I would not worry about it unless it is still hot after 24 hours. Then there is another problem.

Freezer defrosted and the motor won't start back up.


From what I can gather, you have a self defrosting freezer and the "motor" you speak of is the fan inside the freezer. If this is correct, do this:
Unplug freezer. Unload all food into coolers or other freezer space. Leave freezer door open for a day to allow it to manually defrost. Plug freezer back in after minimum 24 hours and confirm fan running and cooling before loading back up with food.

Kenmore upright freezer


reason is that the evaporator is blocked with ice and hence no air circulation.
either
switch off for 24 hours with doors open
or
remove back panel inside freezer and melt ice off with a hairdryer

Kenmore freezer peeing on my floor


  • if the door was not closed correctly for a while then a lot of condensation will be accumulated on the freezer coils. 
  • then when going into defrost it melts this ice/frost and overflows the pan or container under the machine which relies on evaporation to dispel  of the water.
  • empty the pan under the refrigerator if you can, then give it another day, it will get back to normal.
if you already checked this and think it is a different problem then let me know, i will help you figure it out.
