Hi, to find out the total amperage of your unit, you should have a data plate most of the time, located inside with the compressor amperage, and both fan motor amps. If not inside, it will be outside of the unit. It will tell you the RLA and the FLA of each. It will also show the freon type and amount you use. Also, on top of your compressor is a plate that has the RLAmps on it also. This is what you need to find on this unit to help you on your calculations.

### Was offered a new energy efficient freezer 16.7 cu foot standing frost free by Fridgidaire ( energy efficiency rating 65). My 13 yr old Kenmore: Model : 253.9287215 Freezer works fine. Is it rated the...

I was not able to find any info quickly on your older Kenmore in my literature but its a sure bet that it was not as efficient as the new one. You can do a calculation or look at the plate (usually on the back) that states the amperage draw on each model- the higher one is the less efficient. As for cuft you need to do the math and measure the inside storage area in inches wide, inches deep and inches tall. Multiply the width X depth X height then divide by 144 (the cu inches in a cubic ft) this will give you the actual size of the Kenmore for comparison. Hope this helps... also you may want to check with your local electric utility company as many are offering a rebate to replace 10 yr old fridge. freezers and usually pick up for free.

### Can't get freezer to reset model number LFFH17HWC serial numberWB93766371

Hello richardso903 - Once again try resetting the freezer by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately ten minutes and restart the unit. Set the unit to ON, by pressing and holding the Power button for approximately ten seconds. If issue persists and freezer does not turn on, then the unit may be experiencing a wiring failure, faulty plug or control board. I would strongly recommend connecting with a professional to narrow down the precise issue before investing in parts that may or may not be the root cause.

### Power off for electrical repair. Plugged floor freezer back in and a loud buzzing noise is ongoing. Not sure if this is a temperature alert or if there is another problem. Thanks for your help.

This sounds as if its a start relay problem. They are attached to the compressor
You will need the model and serial number to get a new one at the appliance
parts store. They are usually under a plastic cover on the side of the compressor
and the cover is retained by a metal spring clip. Remember to unplug unit before
replacing this part. The model and serial number should be located near the compressor.

Place a glass of lukewarm water on one of the freezer shelves. Leave the freezer door closed overnight. Check the water in the morning to see if the freezer has brought the temperature down. It takes quite awhile for refrigeration units to recover from heat loads such as door open for extended periods of time.

### Which setting on an Energy Miser saves energy?

OFF is the Energy Saver mode.

To reduce moisture, there is a heater around the door seal that stays turned on, using energy. If you switch to ON, you use more energy.

It is confusing though.
