Question about Kenmore Elite HE4 Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Older Kenmore upright freezer

My mother has an approx. 20 yr. old Kenmore upright freezer. She recently found all her food in there thawed out. The freezer is running along with the fan but it is not cold. The coils are not cold either. Any suggestions? I thought it might need new coolent but somebody also said it might be the compressor.

Thanks.

Ajrtz I will give you the same advice I gave my parents when their freezer did this. Just buy a new one. The new freezer will have a full warranty, be more engery efficent(may even qualify for rebate from power company), and you won't be worring when it is going to go down again. To resolve a seal system problem is usually around 500 dollars and that is the price of a new unit. Sorry but that is the best advice I can give you on this. just being honest. Note: If you buy get the best warranty on the sealed system you can. This is the cooling system.

Door seal not tight on upright freezer


Check the door sits straight and square on the front. You can "adjust" with the heel of your hand to make it sit flat against the frame. Even a poor seal shouldn't make frozen food thaw - check and clean the condenser and fan

Upright freeze made a popping noise like a thermostat


If you heard the noise at a fairly routine rate and time it was probably the defrost timer motor. Locate it and you should be able to engage it manually. It is a plug and go part to replace. Be sure to take the old one along with the make n model # with you to the parts house!!

Kenmore freezer not cold at all!


We had a Kenmore upright which worked fine but then suddenly was not keeping food frozen. Long story short, do not store anything on top of the freezer unit. It will insulate the coils that run across the top of the unit, and cause your compressor to work harder than it needs to, and eventually overheat and become ineffective. Says nothing about it in the user manual. We learned the hard way by losing food.
