Yes, it is a temperature control. You will want to turn the dial back to about the center position and then go higher or lower from there. All the way to the right will probably make the freezer try to be colder than you need and ice cream may be impossible to dip for instance. Also if you are running colder than you need to be the freezer will use much more energy. If you have a thermometer that you can stick in there go for around 0 degrees F

I think you should see if the circulation fan is working inside. Sometimes they need a little push and some WD 40 let me know. I might have another idea. The Raz Shack

Freezer defrost cycle


If the defrost timer sticks in the defrost mode,yes. Normal defrost time is 30 minutes or less depending upon which timer is installed.
If it happens again,locate the defrost timer and turn the dial manually to see if the compressor comes back on. If so,replace the timer.
It is probably on the rear near the compressor. Some are under the front behind the dust guard.

Can't get alarm to turn off while temperature stabilizes


My wife solved it for me :-) You turn the alarm off with a switch at the bottom. The alarm turns off, but the light stays red for another 4 hours. After that the red light goes off too, and you can turn the switch back on without the alarm going off, if the freezer is back to operating temp.

I just moved into a home with a kenmore chest freezer. This is a real dumb question, but which symbol means on. Should the circle be showing for "on" or should the line be showing for "on"?


Some freezer models feature a temperature
monitor that provides an audible
alarm. The temperature monitor alarm is
located near the temperature control

The alarm sounds if the temperature in
the freezer rises 10° F (12° C) or more
above normal for selected setting. Alarm
may sound if temperature control dial is
turned to a much colder setting or if a
large amount of unfrozen food is added at
one time. Alarm is controlled by a three
position switch



0 = OFF prevents alarm from sounding
when freezer is warm, such as during
initial start-up or defrosting.
• ✓ = TEST sounds alarm regardless of
temperature. Alarm system should be
tested at least once a month.
1 = ON is proper setting for normal
freezer use. Return switch to 1 after
defrosting.

Sadly these old freezers use way too much electricity. You will be better off junking this one and purchasing a good used or brand new one.
