Question about Kenmore Freezer 20.3 cu. ft. Frost Free Upright Freezer

1 Answer

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

We bought a bunch of beef and had the door open for about 10 min to load the freezer yesterday evening. The meat filled the freezer. I shut the door and turned on the quick freeze and you could hear it kick on. 3-4 hours later the alarm was sounding, so I pressed stop on the alarm button. The meat seemed frozen. The next morning the alarm was going off again and I checked the meat and still frozen.... This evening still frozen and sounding again....

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.

    We had he same problem, but how does this happen? Is the regulator broken? We did nothing out of the ordinary in the last weeks. The darn beeping noise will not end, yet everything seem fine and frozen. How do we stop the alarm? It's becoming un-nerving!

ambient temp 10/35 degrees C.not in direct sunlight,
did you use a level to make sure that it is level in all planes,just to make sure all the door seals are tight,
(look along the seals to make sure)the unit should be left on for at least 24 hours in its chosen position with the doors shut,then check temp,it could take another 12 hours to settle down once loaded.Also make sure that its not touching the wall cuts down on vibration.
once checked,if still not right call samsung..they are good.

The high temp light is on. What can I do to reset it? Everything seems frozen and fine in the frezzer


HIGH-TEMP ALARM SWITCH (SOME MODELS)
An audible
alarm will sound if the freezer temperature reaches
unsafe levels. The alarm operates on household electricity.If
the power
fails, the alarm will not perform.
An ON/OFF switch
allows the high temperature alarm to be
deactivated if desired. NOTE: You must open the
freezer door to
view the alarm switch. The
freezer is shipped with the switch in
the OFF position.
After the freezer has run longenough to
lower the temperature, you
may set the switch to the ON
position.
To activate the alarm, set the switch
to the ON position.
To deactivate the alarm, set the switch to the OFF position

i got this from the freezer manual from Kenmore hope this was helpful

Have a small Kenmore freezer (31" high x 24" deep by 21" wide). It works fine as far as freezing, but it never cycles off. Just keeps on going and going, driving me crazy. I also continually hear a subdued...


the wooshing maybe the oil/freon migrating thru out the internal system...
The cycle depends on 2 things... t'stat operation and timer. The timer usually shuts off freezer every 6 or 8 hrs for 20 to 30 mins. But the t'stat (once it reaches desired temp. should shut off freezer every 15- 20 mins. for an average 10 -15. So 15 mins off min 15 mins on (that is if the doors is not open) you get my point something like that...
but the way you describe to me it sounds like the t'stat. set it at 1 if it dont shut off and you are absoultely sure you got zero degrees (use a temp. reader) then replace the t'stat

hope this was helpful
let me know if this didnt work then plan B

When I shut my freezer door, the freezer makes a hissing sound for roughtly 15 seconds, during which, the freezer door wont open. At the moment there is no food in it, could that be the problem?


the auto defrost fan is drawing the air out to cut down on frost buildup....when you do put food in freezer use vacuum sealer to stop freezer burn and keep portions seperate,easier to rotate food for consumption.also frozen meat can be kept for upto a year at minus 18/20c
