Question about Freezers

The lid switch on my kenmore 70 series has broken off. The wires are still attached, but the plastic unit is no longer connected to the underside of the machine top. I need to drain the machine somehow in order to fix it. How do I do this with the lid switch broken?

There are two wires attached to the lid switch, just connect them together and the machine will work as normal. Please take care not to open the lid while it is operating. This switch is a safety cutout.

The chest freezer was open wide for 24 hours before I noticed it. Will I have a problem with the unit or will it be fine


as cold air sinks to the lowest point it would have been operating a little longer that if it was closed I would think that it will be fine
example chest freezers in supermarkets only have plastic sliding lids and the ice creams and other frozen foods are still frozen

There are only three wires, aren't there? One is a safety earth, probably green or green and yellow. It goes on the spade attached to the metal of the thermostat body. The other two are a live and switched live. They go on the two spades that come out the plastic body. If there happens to be a third, it will be an alarm signal wire. Connect in any order you like. If the compressor comes on and the signal light, all is well. If the signal light does not come on, and the compressor switches off at -12c swap 2 of them. If none of this happens, switch 2 of them.

The "door ajar" alarm keeps going off and the door is sealed shut?


Your door switch may be bad. Is the light on when you open the door when you manually push in on the switch does the light go off? On most fzr the door ajar alarm is set off by the door switch showing the door is open.Turn off the power by unplugging the fzr then you can pop the switch out with a flat blade screw driver if it is only a two wire you can use a paper clip to connect the two wires wrap them with elect tape Then plug the freezer back in and see if the problem clears if it does order a door switch. Some units use a vacume sensor but i believe all kenmores use the door switch. good luck

Water coming out of the lid of a Kenmore 5 cu. Freezer


Funny. We just spent an hour trying to figure out the same problem with our Kenmore. It is the third or fourth time that we've noticed water on the floor under the freezer, but the first time that we've been able to track it to the lid.

The only thing that makes sens to me is that this problem may be happening when our freezer has a frost buildup around the top of the unit which doesn't allow the lid to close perfectly snug. I'm thinking that this causes a bit of melt in whatever frost may be inside the lid from regular air circulation around the unit. It runs out the back of the lid when it opens.

Check that there is no frost around the rim of the freezer that may be causing a slight (it only takes a very small opening to allow warmer air to circulate under the lid) irregularity in the lid seal.

Kenmore 70 series stopped in the draining cycle with water still in tub. Won't function in any cycle now. Lid was down so I don't think lid switch.


You need to remove drain pump and clear restriction. once done, you should be able to continue to wash again.

Chest freezer lid repair


if your freezer has the sping etc in each of the hinges, then yes take them off. If your freezer has a torshon bar type spring, DO NOT take the hinges off, as you will not get it back together

i have always replaced liners with the door attached. The lid of the freezer is going to bow out of shape when you remove all the screws and take the old lining off, so you need to replace the lining and leave the screws loose so you can realine the door bit by bit.
it is a bastard of a job, and i wish you all the best.
