Defrost timer/control may be defective, compressor start device may be defective, or, if this unit has the digital display on front upper portion of door, then it is bad. Give us a model number so we can look at the unit you have. What ever the prob is/was, keep close eye on unit for the next few weeks, if it is one of the above mention problems it will occur again.

I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba. I have an old Kenmore upright freezer. I would like to leave it in my unheated patio over the winter. Should I leave it plugged in, or can I unplug it and just watch the...


Leave it plugged in. It won't over freeze. If the outside air is cold then it won't need to run as much to bring down the temp-nature is doing that. So when the weather gets warm it will run to keep everything frozen. Hope this helps. Google burdfrenzy

My Kenmore Upright Freezer Model 25326432100 flashed "ER."


My freezer was purchased in February, 2004. It is a self defrosting freezer but ice has started forming along the bottom shelf and back wall. Also, after cleaning the freezer the other day it has stopped clycing. The freezer will stop running only if I turn it down to the #1 setting and then it will not come back on. If I turn it up to a higher setting the compressor will not stop running. It ran for over 24 hours and would not cycle unless I turned it off or set it at the #1 setting. When I unplugged it and pulled it away from the wall, there was a green water spot the size of a dinner plate underneath the freezer. Help!! Very Unhappy this freezer is only 6 years old. S in Phila.

Freezer defrosted and the motor won't start back up.


From what I can gather, you have a self defrosting freezer and the "motor" you speak of is the fan inside the freezer. If this is correct, do this:
Unplug freezer. Unload all food into coolers or other freezer space. Leave freezer door open for a day to allow it to manually defrost. Plug freezer back in after minimum 24 hours and confirm fan running and cooling before loading back up with food.

Frigidaire upright freezer Model #FFU17C3AW1 Not keeping cold


Yes that is the correct part number.

Freezer Not Working


The most likely answer is a slow freon leak assuming it was getting to the right temperature before you went on vacation.

Kenmore Upright Freezer 253.21741104 Loss of Power


Yes, it does have a control board. It is located under the rear of the freezer near the compressor. There was a service bulletin out a few years ago about the exact problem you are having. I will not be able to find out if your freezer falls under this design change until tomorrow when I get on my computer at the shop.
What is happening is the board has a fault in it that won't allow it to come back on sometimes if the power blinks off and back on. I am not sure if the repair credit is still active but we have changed the control boards on many of these units free of charge as recently as a year ago.
I will reply back when I find out for sure.
