Question about Kenmore Freezers

Open Question

I have a Kenmore 15.1 cubic ft. freezer model 24152 upright that is starting to ice up at the top. We defrosted it one day and two days later it is building up again. Is there a door hinge adjustment? The door and seal are still good, but the door sags a bit from the hinged side to the other, maybe an inch difference. the seal still covers everything, especially at the top where the problem seems to be.

The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.

Leave the door shut and let the magnetic gasket hold the door in place. Put something between the bottom of the door and the floor to hold it in case it slips.
Remove the bracket holding the pin and hinge assembly taking note of order of removal of parts. Slide new cams on. You probably need two.

My kenmore freezer stopped working for about two days it had been leaking water for a few months, then it started working again?


It could be that your defrost system is faulty. If the freezer does not defrost now and then it will fill up the cooling fins with ice and get warm. The leaking could also be an indication of two much ice. Did you unplug it when it stopped working and then plug it back in?

Groaning Kenmore 13.5 cu. ft. Upright Freezer


This sounds like you either have a bad fan motor or if you have ice built up on the inside back panel. It could be that the fan blades are hitting ice built up around it. If so, you will have a defrost problem that will need to be addressed to fix the unit. But to repair it so it will stop making the noise, you can defrost the ice (if present) with a hair blow dryer. This will keep the ice away for a few days. Good luck.

If there is a defrost problem, the heater (located around the coil) is most likely the problem.

Ice build up in the bottom of my upright freezer


If it's a frost free model, it could be caused by a plugged defrost drain. Every time it goes through a defrost cycle the water is supposed to drain into the compressor compartment. You can defrost it by unplugging it for a day or two and then remove the panel covering the evaporator coil. You should be able to see the drain tray under the coil and find out whats blocking it.

Kenmore Upright Freezer Works Sometime


try a new start relay and overload kit specifically for the make and model freezer you are working on. if compressor can be seen ,the numbers on it can be used to get correct oem start cap, relay ,and overload. if your unit is having starting problems that will usually fix it. if however, the stat is failing to bring it on a new stat is called for. but it sounds like it is having starting problems since you said it was off a long while then still struggled on the overload to start then finally did. if the new start components don't work then new freezer time. compressor replacement is to expensive anymore. good luck
