Question about Kenmore 14.1 cu. ft. / 399 liter Upright Freezer 23414

1 Answer

Freezer runs constantly

We have an upright freezer model 253 9239786 mfg 4/95.

It runs constantly at 1.7 amps (200 watts) continuously. The sides also feel warm.

Does this need service?

Not necessarily, is it maintaining temp? all food staying frozen? especially ice creams if stored in there. most newer freezers displace the heat generated while cooling the food through copper lines running through sides of unit, helps to cut down on air temp differences between the inside (0 degrees) and outside temp to prevent moisture and possible condensation causing premature rusting of unit

Freezer seems to run all the time.


Good Morning Linda, this is Z. I appreciate your post!

I understand your Frigidaire freezer seems to continuously running. Unlike older freezer that turned off and on frequently, newer models save energy from having to start up and shut off repeatedly. For example, diesel-powered trucks conserve fuel and energy and therefore have less engine wear and tear by keeping the motor running; much like newer energy efficient refrigerators/freezer. If the compressor is running on a more constant basis; it is maintaining the temperature within your freezer, rather than having to cut off and start again to adjust the temperature.

I hope this information explains why your freezer runs more often. However, should you feel that a service technician is needed; you may visit the manufacturer website to find a provider in your area that will look at your freezer.

Best regards!

Looking for the start up surge for my kenmore freezer 253. I would like to purchase a generator and want to make sure this freezer would operate.


Hello,

At the peak power usage time..compressor start up it may reack 11 amps..when calulating that it is a max of 1300 watts..so a generator of 1500 or more should work fine
When running after start up is usually about 500 watts

My freezer's defrost systems runs constantly


i dont think so i would look at the compressor kicking out on thermal overload or a faulty thermostat thermostats have two settings cut in cut out your cut in could be bad and not turning the compressor on till the temp reaches melting temps now if your hearing a click buzz then you need to look at the compressor and make sure the compressor fan is running but its not a defrost promblem
