Did you start it up right after you moved it?if so you may have damaged the compressor from liquid being in the compressor ,when you move a refrigerator or freezer or anything with freon/refrigerant in it it should be allowed to sit in its operating position for a time to allow the freon to settle

Temprature blinking


Control board has gone bad....

What happens is the defrost is controlled electronically from a circuit board, when this goes bad, the freezer quits defrosting, and freezes the fans that circulate air through the fridge side of things.

To check this, unplug the entire fridge, leave the freezer open, wait for it to defrost a bit, if this causes the fridge to start cooling again when you plug it back in, then its the defrost. You should also see ice crystals on the back of the freezer just under the icemaker.

It seems the my freezer is not cooling down. When I set it up, as the instructed by the freezer manual, I turned the temperature setting to level 4. Then after waiting 24 hours, I adjusted the setting to...


I would unplug it and leave it set level. When you tilt it some of the oil in the compressor can get up into the upper pare. in some cases if the motor can't move it will either burn up or burn out the starting capacitor or coil. Plug it in again the next day and see what happens. Small freezers may take a long time to cool down and they need something in them to cool. Put pans of water or something in it and see if it will get cold enough to freeze them

New whirlpool refrig. freezer ok at 0 but refrig


The freezer get the first crack at cooling and combination units have a fan and adjustable vents to steal some of the cooling capacity for the refrigerator. The vent are normally located in the back of the refrigerator compartment and with these, you can balance the cooling capacity between freezer and fridge. I recommend you swap your thermometer back and forth until you get the balance you want; typically the freezer should be at 5 degrees F or below and the fridge at 35-40 degrees F. Adjusting the control for temperature and having the vents set to supply the cold air you want in each compartment should give you the range you want in each.

Freezer is getting to about o degrees but refrigerator section wont go below 50 this is amana side by side asb2623hrw also changed the defrost timer about a month ago and blew off the coils from underneath...


Check your lower air shutter that lets cold air move from the freezer to the refrigerator's. You may have something blocking the air flow, food, plastic, etc... There should be a dial that opens, and closes the door.

Freezer won't get below 13 degrees


Make sure the evaporator coils behind the rear cover inside the freezer are not iced up too much. This would indicate a defrost problem and will get worse.
If the compressor is still cycling off and on the cold control could be at fault.

My Kenmore freezer, model #253.9280212 runs but will not cool below 40 degrees. It runs all the time but I do not hear anything cut on and off. The freezer is 10 years old but looks brand new.


The first thing to check is door gasket< bad corners,gap in side,bottom or top. Close door on a dollar bill and try to slide it top to bottom side to side and if it slides fairly easy then seal is not doing good. If you find dirty area clean it off along with the cabinet side as well.If you find the side is leaking then heat gasket with hair dryer and apply vasoline to gasket to help it move freely. If you find tear or hole then replace it.

Moving a Kenmore upright freezer


there would be a problem if you lay it down. it should be moved up right or max 45 degrees tilt only. oil in the compressor could go to the evaporator and clog it.

front handles could be remove only from the inside. you have to remove the plastic rack of the door and remove the insulation in order to see the bolt holding the handle.

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.
