It's either a bad thermostat, or a bad compressor kicking out on overload. There are other rare possibilities. A multi meter is the best way to check the thermostat (using ohms), but if you don't have one then you can unplug the box and wire around the thermostat and the plug the box back in to see if it runs longer. If so, then unplug the box and replace the thermostat. If you are unfamiliar with wiring then call a technician. Electricity can kill you if you don't know what you're doing, so don't chance it if you don't know anything about it.

SOURCE: kenmore upright freezer model 29238 keeps tripping switch

If the compressor actually runs for more than a second or two its likely the compressor is bad. Some models had a 5 year warranty and some ten years on the compressor only. The replacement of the compressor is likely beyond your abilities unless you are a service technician.

A typical cost for such a repair can be more than the freezer may have cost you if nothing is under warranty. Good Luck.

Kenmore upright freezer does not shut off until door is opened. freezer seems to work well.


Going by the service manual it seems that everything is fine. The fan is supposed to run while the door is shut and the compressor is supposed to run 12 hours and then a 30 min defrost cycle comes on then the cycle starts over again. I am posting the service manual, parts and wiring diagram for you to view if you so choose. https://files.acrobat.com/a/preview/8a6d6ca4-04b6-4cfa-b435-3980042b3ad3

The freezer is running, and the light is all coming on but it is not freezing the contents in the freezer?


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly
If your sure the compressor is running and it is not freezing then there has to be a system coolant leak.
Having said that there are a few things to check:
1. Is the compressor in fact running Y / N
a. Yes = coolant level problem or coolant system blockage
b. Not running = (Possibilites below)
1) PTC / Klixon Thermal overload failure
2) Run capacitor failure
3) Temp control failure
4) Automatic defrost thermostat or thermistor
5) Defrost timer or Adaptive defrost control failure (depending on model)
2. Is the compressor very hot to the touch or room temp?
a. VERY hot = unplug the unit for at least 30 minutes and then plug it back in.
b. ROOM temp = any of the above in 1b items 1) - 5)
3. Is the evaporator fan running?
a. Yes = Temp control is ok Defrost system is probably ok
b. No = same as 2b

With a model number I could pass on a few additional things to do. For the moment use the above.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Kelly

If the freezer was stored and not running for 7 years it may have lost coolant.  Since the compressor is running recharging the coolant may fix the problem.  Hot compressor might indicate low coolant since its motor is immersed in it.
