Hi, The walls are getting hot because that is where the condesor coils are. The condensor coils are where the heat is disperst that is trap as the coolant pumps through the evaporator coils inside. The fact that it is holding 0 degrees is a good sign. Is this freezer in a garage?
Check the door seals to make sure no heat is getting into the freezer other then when the door is opened.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Loud clanging noise from Kenmore upright freezer


Check the condenser fan (outside at the rear) and check the coil isn't baking hot. Electronics or board wouldn't cause your symptoms. Check the simple things first!

We are wondering what the ideal temp. range should be in the room where the freezer is.


The cooler the better, most freezers use the side walls of the unit to disipate heat generated. The unit will use less energy in a cooler enviroment. The trade off is added heat to an area that is air conditioned. Overall you will be better off inside if it is hot outside.

What should the tempurture control on a 13.7 cu. ft. Kenmore upright , model 253 214 21101 freezer be set at when 3/4 to full be set at?


you will have to play with the adjustment until you get into its range. the load has alot to do with the box temp. I suggest getting a thermometer and try setting the temp to @20-25 degrees and see if that helps

New upright kenmore freezer temp varies +/- 10 degrees


Over what period of time did this variation occur?

The freezer should have an automatic defrost cycle. The temperature will rise while it is going through this cycle.

Does the light on the outside of freezer stay on . I bought a used freezer. It is a frigidaire commercial upright (frost free) Does the light on outside of freezer stay on all the time? I have no manual....


Normally there is a Green light showing that power is on

A Yellow one for fast freeze and a Red one for under temperature

The outer casing is well insulated from the inside otherwise the freezer motor would run none stop without cooling the contents so the temperature of the outside casing will reflect the room temperature not the intenal

Freezer runs constantly


not necessarily, is it maintaining temp? all food staying frozen? especially ice creams if stored in there. most newer freezers displace the heat generated while cooling the food through copper lines running through sides of unit, helps to cut down on air temp differences between the inside (0 degrees) and outside temp to prevent moisture and possible condensation causing premature rusting of unit

Freezer problem


if you don't hear it running for extended periods of time (more than 15 minutes) without stopping, and if it does not immediately re-start once it does stop, and if it is extremely hot climate outside (85 F and above), then yes, this is acceptable.
