Check behind freezer , to make sure the fan which cools the compressor , is working . If not , replace the fan motor , or , something may be blocking the fan blade ( paper , plastic , etc ) .

Strong Odor when running


The smell is coming from the condenser heating up which should be located all around the outside of the box. When it is in pull down from being warm the condenser will get very hot and the smell would be the spray foam and any other chemicals in the vicinity heating up. When heated up to a certain point they will off gas and you may get a smell. After a little wile the smell should go away for good.

No power at all changed fuse checked sockets made a horrible smell and very hot


There is a reset switch on the side of the metal control box beside the compressor, the horrible smell I guess is burnt insulation (acrid burnt smell). There are lots of possibilities for this,
1. Is the condenser clean, that's the grill that looks like a car radiator,
2. The condenser fan may be faulty, no fan noise when it starts
3. Electrical component burnt out, this depends on when the smell occurs.
4. Compressor leads, capacitors or relay.

Sorry but I think you are going to have to find your local ice machine guy to check this out.

You can reset the machine as above, but if the problem is critical you may do more damage than good

Best wishes

Freezer is hot on the sides is this normal?


Good day,
Yes, that is normal. It is ideal to not be in a hot room but as it reaches temperature and begins to cycle off and on it will become somewhat cooler.

Compressor very hot on Kenmore 7.5 c.f. upright freezer. It is too hot to touch and smells like burning paint, but stayed cold inside. Wondering if this is a bad compressor and about how much it costs to...


Compressors will normally run hot to the touch, but should not have a burning smell. If the compressor does need to be replaced you would be better off getting a new freezer. Compressor replacement with the labor can run into more than a new freezer.

The sides of my Kenmore freeze get very hot (138 F)


This is normal. The refrigerant lines run through the sides and get hot.

My freezer is hot!


It is normal for the freezer or fridge walls to be hot sometimes, some important points are to make sure that there is enough ventillation around the fridge/freezer, especcially the back, so that air can circulate around it freely. Also maybe just check that there hasn't been anything fallen down the back blocking the vent, and that there isn't a dust collection or anything. Otherwise as far as I know this is normal.

Burning Smell


Keep it unplugged and look for burned wires, or rubber wires hardened from extreme heat. This will be a good start in finding what is going wrong. One more thing to check is if the compressor is heating up after running for a while. Let it run for 20 min or so, shut off the power and feel the compressor. Is it hot?
