1 Answer

Purchased a brand new sears freezer Its been running for20 hrs

I just had a Sears Kenmore 7.02 cu ft freezer installed in my home.I thought that it would shut off after 4 or 5 hours of operation but. its been running 20 straight hours and has not shut off yet.I called Sears and they told me that this was quite normal and to give it 24 hour to reach its freezing level. I manually shut it off and it came back on after 5 min.Any suggestions?

    the freezer shut off after 20 hours of continual operation.Came back on an hour later and ran again for 20 hours is this normal? the sears tech said that it is normal for this model to run a lot.Is it because they do not use freon anymore.

You have a Kenmore upright, which you set on ZERO? WHY?
Every time you open the door all of the cold air falls out and it has to start over in the cool down cycle, the fan stops to NOT push all of the COLD out while the door is open - you should consult a professional. Not for the freezer, for your ability to understand.

Just got this freezer and it has been pluged in since 2pm yesterday. It is still at 50 degrees. How long does it take for a freezer to start freezing ?

Within 2 to 4 hours after initial power on.

Call Sears and tell them you want it exchanged not repaired,that is if it is new and under warranty.
Make sure the thermostat is set at about the mid setting of the adjustment range!
Good Luck !

Upright freezer shuts off and leaks when there is any kind of ice buildup. has done this twice in 7 months. is this normal or is it on its way out?

I suggest checking the defrost circuit. Make sure the drain in the back of the freezer is clear first. Then check the defrost timer, switch, and heating element using a volt meter. You can download a schematic from the Sears/Kenmore website.

You can try 2 things. Unplug it for about 2-3 minutes and then replug it. It should reset itself. You can silence the alarm or muffle it. Silencing it should be hard. Disconnect it from its source. You may want to find out why it is alarming constantly. Have you called Sears and asked them?

I would leave the door closed unplug it for half an hour. In that half hour go to customer service, manuals and guides and type in the full model number from the freezer. You should find an owners manual there to print or just browse for an answer. Good Luck.

Kenmore 14.8 cft - temperature between 5 and -22 degrees (-15 and -30 C)

Big...this is likely normal. I'm not sure where you're measuring that temp from. If it is the fan outlet, this is possible. The fact that the unit is staying below 5 degrees means that it is within spec. You do have a warranty. Ask Sears to come on in and check it out.

Your 'duty cycle'...that amount of time that the compressor is on should be about 20% of a unit of time...say 25 minutes out of 2 hours. Is that about right? If so, enjoy your ice cream.
