SOURCE: 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

FREEZER WAS WORKING FINE 5 years ago before we stopped using it because we didn't use it anymore. But i tried using it again this year, it turns on but will not work/freeze.


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service technician.
You have not provided very much information, so I am going to make some assumptions.
First, you stored the unit either outside with a cover or stored it in you garage; both of which have drastic changes of seasonal temperature. This is bad.
Basic refrigerators and freezers are designed to be both store and operate in a controlled atmosphere, such as your home.
Not properly stored and with changes of temperature between night and day and winter and summer, creates condensation on all of the components as well as thermal expansion on the brazed seal system joints.
Well, let's check it out. I assume both the evaporator and condenser motors are running.
Unplug the unit. Remove the back lower cover. Feel around the compressor and tubing for a oily substance. If this is the case, then you have a refrigerate leak. This is a major repair and will cost $650.00 to $750.00.
Ok, no oily substance. Inspect for burned wiring from condensate.
You may also had condensate get to your control board.
It is difficult to say what the problem is because I am making experienced assumptions.
Do not discard this unit. The older units are better built. A service tech such as I to show up at your door is $79.00. I estimate this service call will be about $350.00.
Call me. Let's kick it around. 443-306-1362

Kenmore freezer leaking green


It's not refrigerant. Refrigerant would have evaporated straight away. What did you have in the freezer when it went off? It may be refrigerant oil, in which case mop it up with paper tissue and clean the area with detergent. It's no more toxic than any other oil.It's most likely to be excess ice/frosting leeching from inside the cabinet. Again, mop up with tissue paper.

Foul fish smell emanating from the freezer


Well an old remedy is to put a box of opened arm and hammer baking soda in the freezer and fridge to keep it from having bad odors.If that doesn't work you can try some charcoal it is perfect for absorbing odor, just don't use the matchlight kind or it will smell like lighter fluid.

Upright freezer shuts off and leaks when there is any kind of ice buildup. has done this twice in 7 months. is this normal or is it on its way out?


I suggest checking the defrost circuit. Make sure the drain in the back of the freezer is clear first. Then check the defrost timer, switch, and heating element using a volt meter. You can download a schematic from the Sears/Kenmore website.

Trying to see if it has a drain plug


FILL 1 or 2 shelves with crumpled up newspaper . The ink in the newspaper , will absorb odor . May take a while , but it's the only proven way I know of , to remove fish odor . May have to change paper every couple of days , till the odor is gone .

Freezer problems big time


Try putting a tray of crushed charcoal in there... a one foot by one foot tray about 3 inches deep filled with crushed BBQ briquettes (the kind that doesn't have lighter fluid in it!) left over night or longer may pull much of the "stank" out, and you can always do it again with fresh charcoal if it works but not well enough... Good luck!

Frost free freezer smells like fish


IF THERE WAS A LAYER OF ICE ON THE BOTTOM OF THE FREEZER, THE DRAIN IS PROBABLY PLUGGED UP. IT WILL NEED TO BE CLEARED BEFORE PUTTING BACK INTO SERVICE OR IT WILL JUST DRAIN INTO THE FLOOR OF THE FREEZER AGAIN. AS FAR AS THE ODOR, TRY PUTTING CHARCOAL IN IT TO ABSORB THE ODORS. IT WILL HAVE TO BE LEFT IN THERE FOR QUITE A WHILE. WHEN THE FREEZER IS CHILLED, IT WILL LESSEN THE SEVERITY OF THE ODOR. IF THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE, THERE ARE COMMERCIAL ODOR NEUTALIZERS ON THE MARKET YOU CAN USE.
