SOURCE: when plugged, kenmore freezer shorts the surge protector and outl

if thats the case should be an apparent wire off, somethings shorting directly to ground. the chest freezer has all of its wiring behind the access panel on the side of unit , no other wires in machine id look right there for something obvious

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Freezer freezes and then thaws

check wiring into outlet and at breaker that feeds outlet. you may be losing high volts at or to the switch. if possible check power into the stat when the condition occurs. this will telll you if stat is bad or power into it aka the outlet is bad. you may be jiggling wires in the outlet enough to fix short term each time you replug to outlet or get a good heavy extension cord and plug in else where to seee if problem goes away.Good luck

Check the bi-metal switch. when cold, it should have continuity also.
If both heater and bi-metal are good, change the defrost timer

I hope this helps.

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?

Hi I have an upright Siemens freezer (model E000786) which is 9 years old. It still works well but I have found for the last couple of years that it needs defrosting more frequently due to the ice...


a full defrost will take,depending on room temperature,about 12 hours,DO NOT USE HOT WATER/SHARP OBLECTS.
you can use car deicer but it will leave a residue/smell that you can remove by wiping out with clorine bleach.make sure any drain holes are syringed out with clorine and wipe out any drip tray to stop smells.by drain away he probably means"dries naturally"
do make sure all food is wrapped/covered (clingfilm) to cut down on frost/condensation inside the unit.after a full defrost fill with your usual foodstuff and fill any space left with newspaper filled poly bags.(less airspace=more efficient)

My freezer doesn't seem to be freezing as well as it has in the past. somethings are frozen hard but ice cream isn't as solid as it should be


Try this... unplug...
take everything out and defrost the freezer
(go get a couple bags of ice and a big clean garbage can so you can keep the food cold)
you can defrost the freezer faster with a hair dryer
when you finish turn t'stat to high setting... put all food back in and dont overload and dont block any air vents (if they are located at top dont overlaod)
plugg in wait 24 hrs...
if you dont notice a difference let me know...

hope this was helpful

Kenmore upright freezer


It is best to unplug the unit, open the door fully and let stand 24 hrs. to thoroughly defrost. Empty the drain pan if so equipped.
Wipe out interior with a dry cloth, then locccck or otherwise secure the door so that it cannot open. Place a moving cart on the non-hinge side to transport it, and never lay it on its back.

Kenmore upright - wont defrost, runs continuously and wont freeze properly


well don't be surprised, these electronic fridges run on dc electronics also and are sensitive to power surges. is this the freezer because there's no thermostats just the limit control. use a surge protector on the outlet to protect the electronics. if your still having problems get the limit sensors changed first (if applicable). if you want to go the safe way, I'd consider buying a surge protector and connecting it to the power.you can e-mail me with any questions @ hvac.tech7872pr@gmail.com

Kenmore 23.1 cf Chest Freezer not cooling below 14F


Make sure everything is working, I.E. compressor, fans. Now I need to know if the freezer shuts off at 14 degrees, or does it continue to run without making temp. If it shuts off, then the first place to look is the thermostat. It may be out of calibration. If it continues to run, then the solution may be as simple as cleaning the condenser coil. or the defrost has malfunctioned somehow. Defrost probleams will cause excess ice on the inside coil. You may need to remove the panels to see how much ice is on it. It sounds like the compressor is good, as it is pretty cold. Just not cold enough. A deep freeze should be at least 0.
