Question about Kenmore Freezers

Open Question

I am trying to identify the model number of an old Kenmore freezer. It is an ultra-low (-20C) so it's probably considered a lab freezer. It's about 3' tall. The door handle says Kenmore 6. The only other identification inside or out is a wiring diagram on the back. The number on there is 728839-A. Any Idea?

Check these two things first.  1.  Is there a thick frost buildup on the back panel at the bottom half of the freezer?  2.  Do you hear the fan running inside the freezer?  Let me know what you find.

SOURCE: I am accumulating ice inside my freezer

It needs to be defrosted. If ice builds up quickly again then start shopping for another freezer as the repair is not worth it. I cannot see your repyl due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

SOURCE: Gassy smell in upright freezer

Is this a refrigerator in a household or an RV?
The reason I ask is that RV refrigerators use ammonia, which you can smell. If you read the article you probably read that Freon does not have an odor, in extreme cases you can smell burnt refrigeration oil when a system with a large leak has been left running, but by then the unit wouldn't be working.
If your refrigerator did in fact have a leak it wouldn’t be working, due to such a small amount of refrigerant present. ( typically about 5 ounces )
So, your gassy smell is likely from something else. I find this happens most often when potatoes or carrots are stored for long periods of time in the refrigerator, usually in the crispers. When starchy vegetables wilt ( get smaller with age ) they give off a gas. The smell eventually comes not from the starch, but from the bacteria that starts growing on it. All this happens on a microscopic level so you won't see anything. good luck

SOURCE: low temp alarm goes off on Kenmore upright freezer

The alarm is there for a reason. I wouldn't disconnect it. Maybe the compressor is low on gas. If your thermostat is on extremely low, try moving it up to a less cold position. Look in your owner's manual for recommended settings.

Failing that, get ready to shell out some bucks to the service man!

Sear chest freezer stop working model#2539139180


The compressor probably shut off on thermal overload. This protects the compressor from burning up. What has happened is that a capacitor or evaporator has gone bad or it could be low on freon. Have someone take a look at it. However, if it is older than 8-10 years old, consider replacing it. This could be the beginning of the end.

In my freezer, there is a blinking red light next to the icemaker on-off switch. What is it and why is it blinking?


It might be blinking because it hasn't been able to reach the required temperature or the temperature you have set. Probably leaving it close for one or two days, the light will go off, if not, you might consider changing the plastic isolation of the door, you know, the plastic thing that you see goes around the freezer door, best luck.

It only two years old, do not know where the book is at. I have 800 lbs of meat in. it was set at 5. do we go up on the number and do i have to much meat in and air not getting a round. please help!!!!


as long as you did not pack it in too tightly,to allow an air flow around the back and sides of the shelves/drawers,you should use a freezer thermometer,in the centre,to check,after 24 hours,
that you have -18C to -20C all should be fine.....i do not trust onboard temp guages that much.....

What is a reasonable temp setting for this freezer? Bought it without the manual. A quick version on how to set that temp would be helpful. Thx, m..


freezers should be -18/20C to keep beef for 12 months,use a freezer guage in centre of freezer,that way you wont get ice bricks instead of ice cream.....test after 24 hours of setting....

Need -20 degrees Celsius...Will this brand get there?


If all is ideal maybe -10 an occationally -15 and this is F considerable coolder than -20C. ALSO fyi a chest freezer will stay at or below these temps better than an upright and especially a self defrosting model. Because a chest freezer you dont loose all the cold air when you open the door. TYhey are not made in auto matic defrost as far as I know (never have seen one but then I havent been looking for one either. An up right freezer can be manual defrost or automatic. but the cold air falls ouit every time the door is opened.

Please let em know if this helps you by giving me as high a mark as you can and thank you for using fixya.

Old Upright Kenmore Freezer Help , please


If it is a shelve it is made for storage. A sign of imminent death on these old freezers would be its ability NOT to reach a low enough temperature when running. The older systems had heavier metals in the construction including the cooling systems. Some tips on keeping it happy would be to operate it in a place where you would be comfortable to sit for an extended period of time.
