Freeze on bottom but not on top

I have a kenmore up right freezer it is about 5 years old. We moved a year ago I never plugged it up until the other day. It will freeze something if you set it on the bottom but anything on the middle or top shelf will not freeze or stay frozen.

I would suggest you have it serviced, sounds like the coolant gas has slowly leaked out. A good indication this has happened is that the bottom of the freezer is a lot warmer than the top. To repair an engineer will first cut the coolant pipe and drain the existing gas and then recharge, re-pressurise and seal.

Used Kenmore freezer won't get cold enough

If it is running but not cooling enough the problem is in the sealed system.

If you started it up just after hauling it home it may have be moved around enough to get oil in the systems smaller tubing causing problems. Unplug the unit for 24 hours and let it sit. Try it again for 24 hours and see if it cools.

If not this means either there is a refrigerant (freon) leak in the system or a restriction causing the refrigerant to not flow properly.

Either one are an expensive repair. and will require a professional to look at.

Only one half of my chest type freezer freezes? It is old. Bought at least 18 years ago. Help!

If you do, consider purchasing a new small one that is really energy efficient. You will be way money ahead I assure u.

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.
