Question about Kenmore 20.3 cu. ft. / 575 liter Upright Freezer 23024
I have an older freezer kenmore model 253-9218711, power was off for 6hrs, upon power comming back on, freezer compressor never started. Light works, fan is working freezer warm ( due to compressor not turning on. cked for voltage at compresser, 0 volts, cked for voltage at power cord and relay have 120v. compressor is not open has reaistance for what get ohms were. Where can I start to look for the issue? defroster timer, or ?
Tks for the help.
They make generic "compressor packs" to solve these. Your capacitors and relay and parts that support the compressor operation went out.
If you're really really like just the temp overload switch went and you can jumper bypass it. It usually looks like a piezo electric type of disc connected right onto the comp case itself.
But you're right with the DT, the motors go out on them a lot. They are usually for 4/6/10/12 hours depending on make and model. Sometimes the contacts go So if you could isolate them... they're on the larger side and will go from the power to the compressor. Use a jumper and test for a complete circuit to the plug and through the compressor before trying it.
By law all freezers and ovens have to have a schematic diagram on them. Often it it in a little plastic package and sometimes just wallpapered to the inside of a large piece of sheetmetal in back.
Good that you know how to use a meter!
