Question about Kenmore 20.3 cu. ft. / 575 liter Upright Freezer 23024
Now it won't start at all. What can I do to test, re-set or trouble shoot? It's a Kenmore large upright model 33207
The first thing to find out is what is running and what is not. If I am reading the specs on your unit right this is a frost free unit. There should be a fan inside behind the back wall.
Plug the freezer into a known good outlet and turn the dial up. If the fan comes on then go behind the freezer and down at the bottom is a compressor, you should be able to hear that running as it and fan should run together.
If they are running and no cooling takes place in 24 hours you have a problem in the sealed system, most likely the refrigerant has leaked out.
If nothing is running you have either:
- A bad thermostat, (the control behind the dial) It can be checked with an ohmmeter, with the power off and wires disconnected the meter should read 0 ohms when the dial is turned up
- A broken or chewed through wire (could be anywhere)
- A defrost timer that is stuck in defrost. It can be checked with an ohmmeter using a similar method as the thermostat.
Sorry this was not an easy answer
