My kenmore upright freezer is running but not freezing is there a reset button


**Freezing gas may have leaked out at some point. Compressor works but freezer not freezing.

**Thermostat setting not suitable for freezing to occur; check and adjust

**Check whether evaporator at the back of your freezer is hot/slightly warm to touch. If it's not; call your freezer service/repair man asap

Kenmore upright freezer 255.29502010 temp wont go below 37 degrees while running. Inside tubing on back wall freezer but tubing on shelves is not working.


This freezer has a refrigerant leak, and will only get worse. I am looking at the identical Kenmore model and the refrigerant is so low that a little frost forms on the capillary tube. I doubt that it is worth repairing. I can do my own repairs, but finding the leak is going to be near to impossible...

Kenmore upright freezer. continually runs. Temp. is 10 degrees f. I cleaned the dust off the compresser. Checked for leaks on the door seals no leaks. I have just now set the temp control from 4 to 3 and...


Power outages would not make a difference, but dust on the compressor coils would. The best way is to vacuum the coils and then spray with soapy liquid making sure not to spray anything electrical.

Freezer seems to be leaking freon. repair person told me that if there is a leak then it is up in the walls of the freezer and cannot be repaired. Is this true?


Yes, if the condenser coils are not on the back of the freezer or underneath they put them in the walls of the freezer where they are not accessable with out destroying the box to get to them. So if that is where the leak is then no it is not repairable.......if the leak is in the evaporator and if the evaporator is Alumium then it is also not repairable.

Kenmore leaking oil


Hi!!

You have a Refrigerant Gas (Freon) leak. Oil travels with the Refrigerant Gas thru the system, that's why you see the oil on the drip pans, if you look closely you should be able to know where is coming from.

For what you are telling me, it seems that the leak is of considerable size, I recommend to ASAP take freezer to a Kenmore authorized service station for a repair estimate, then you can decide to fix it or get a new one. If you call a repair tech, he will charge for the house call regardles.

Good Luck

Chest Freezer not cooling


Please don't rate this solution, as anything but FixYa brings my rating down, but here's what you've got:
You have a refrigerant leak (commonly referred to a Freon, but these days usually R134A refrigerant). Some refrigerant has leaked, so you are still getting some cooling, but there is not enough refrigerant left to cool throughout the entire evaporator coils. This is NOT a repairable condition, as the coils are foamed in place and not accessable for leak repair. If this unit is under 5 years old (typical sealed system warranty) the manufacturer will most likely replace your freezer with a new one. If over 5 years, you are out of luck. Buy a replacement freezer.
