Question about Kenmore 14.8 cu. ft. / 419 liter Chest Freezer 13541

1 Answer

Kenmore 18 cu ft chest freezer

This freezer came with the house, its in the basement which is very dusty, dirty. It sounds like the compressor turns on when I plug it in, but after about 4 hours it still isn't cold. I am considering having a repairmain look at it, but wonder if there might be some simple things I could do first.

A chest freezer is a very simple machine. There are no fans or defrost system to cause a problem.
You need to make sure the thermostat is not turning off to soon.
If the compressor is running but it does not cool, then there is a problem with the refrigerant system.
You will want to check around with some local repair services, but about the cheapest you would have it repaired will be around $250. That is if it can be repaired at all. The majority of the refrigerant lines are inside the cabinet and unrepairable.
Post back if you have any questions.

I have a Kenmore 5 cu ft freezer that won't come on. I've checked the plug in and it works fine. Where would I start looking for the problem????


If, by plug in you mean the socket, then you need to check the fuse in the power plug next.
At the very lease there should be some light on the unit that illuminate even if it does not FREEZE.
If the compressor comes on wait to see if there is any drop in temperature. then it is possible the fuse was faulty.

see below links for more information on possible causes

Haier 5.3 Cu ft Chest freezer. power is on but compressor doesn't run. There is click sound but nothing happens after.


The click sound is the compressor starter relay closing but if nothing further happens it is likely that there has been a compressor failure

Kenmore 6.9 cu. ft. chest freezer stopped working


It looks like a bad ignition switch or capacitor. This is not that expensive. Probably not the compressor. Unfortunately, one small part stops the whole show.have a friend who is a tech look at it.

    Start up current draw


    Lock motor Amps ( LMA ) is the current draw when the compressor starts.This draw of current is less then 1sec.The amp amount shoud be on the compressor Name Plate.This amp draw is also the amps used when the compressor goes bad and locks up then the overload kicks out.

    My kenmore 19.7 cu.ft. chest freezer is not running and the compressor is hot


    Place a volt meter set for amp draw around one wire of the compressor. If you do not have a constant amp draw replace the start relay on the compressor.
    If you do have a constant amp draw the compressor is bad or you have a refrigerant leak.

    Compressor click


    Possibly. However it sounds like the compressor is running hot which could be the relay assembly sticking with the start windings in the circuit.

    Compressor Stopping


    compressor is running overloaded possible problems bad relay/overload /capacitor dirty or clogged condensers if the unit uses a condenser fan suspect a bad fan. and defective thermostats are notorious for short cycling. id check the coils first and if dirty clean up maybe that can be the major problem.
