Question about Kenmore 20.3 cu. ft. / 575 liter Upright Freezer 23024

Open Question

Every 12 hours, freezer alarm goes off

My freezer model# 253.24092103 initially only started beeping when I opened the freezer door. The "CE" error code came up, so I eventually called for service. They said I had to replace the ENTIRE door because there was a problem with the relay between the top computer and the one at the bottom at a cost of over $500! Ridiculous for a freezer that is only 3 years old AND is supposed to be a heavy duty commercial one, at that. It no longer beeps when I open the door. However, NOW it beeps every 12 hours on the nose. Wakes me up in the middle of the night. I am very frustrated with this. Can someone PLEASE tell me how to disable this stupid alarm???

Replace the 9V battery in a Frigidaire Upright Freezer Model GLFU1767FW4?

Hello Kerry;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You do not have a 9V battery in your unit. It is usually located on the right hand side of the bottom toe plate. There is a small door. This is just a batter backup if you loose cooling or power.

CE means Communication Error. It is like the check engine light on your car. It just tells you that there is something wrong. The 'd' means door seal. There are no sensors or electronics connected to your door seal.

1.) Is your freezer fan running?
2.) Is your lower back condenser fan running?

If they are running the problem is with your main control board. This is located behind your freezer, on the left hand side and mounted on the side wall with several screws. This is a easy part to replace.

PART NUMBER: 216979700 Cost: $134.00
There are only several connectors on the back and a main cable connector.

If you elect to do the work your self, make sure you ground yourself by touching bare metal. Static electricity will knock out a board. Needless to say before the start of work unplug your unit.

If you were to call me when I was a service tech, I would double the part cost plus at least $140.00 labor.

I have an upright Sears kenmore Elite Freezer that beeps CE ever 12 hours and I have to hit the reset button to make it stop. Repair tech said I need to replace the door. Has to be simpliar solution

does it have a back up battery? spending 450 to fix it is not kool. the speaker needs to be cut ! buy a temp gauge, it's how we did it in the old days.. you could even get one that has a alarm at target for 20.00.. like the one used to cook a turky..

Can't get alarm to turn off while temperature stabilizes

My wife solved it for me :-) You turn the alarm off with a switch at the bottom. The alarm turns off, but the light stays red for another 4 hours. After that the red light goes off too, and you can turn the switch back on without the alarm going off, if the freezer is back to operating temp.

the temperature control is bad. when you push the fast freeze it bypasses the thermostat for 12-24 hours depending on which model you have. I am not able to find any parts information with the model number provided but you should be able to find a temperature control at any local appliance parts house or online thru any reputable supplier.

Frigidaire Upright freezer with Beeping Display

First make sure you have a good 9v battery installed. If it is ok then the problem will probably be in the display board or the wiring connectors between the boards. CE is communication error. If your model has the electronic tempature control instead of mechanical thermostat the problem could be in there. My bet is a bad connection at display board.
