Question about Kenmore 19.7 cu. ft. / 558 liter Chest Freezer 13009

Open Question

I have an OLD, around 1985 Kenmore chest freezer. I can't get to the model or serial number. My concern is that the left ORANGE light is on all the time as well as the light indicating there is power. It is green. Is there a problem with the freezer ?? I just noticed that the orange light is on all the time yesterday. So far I can't see that there is any defrosting going on . Why is the orange light on ? Control to the right has the 1 indicator ON. Thanks for your help. I work at Sears part time by got no help from appliance person.

Make sure everything is working, I.E. compressor, fans. Now I need to know if the freezer shuts off at 14 degrees, or does it continue to run without making temp. If it shuts off, then the first place to look is the thermostat. It may be out of calibration. If it continues to run, then the solution may be as simple as cleaning the condenser coil. or the defrost has malfunctioned somehow. Defrost probleams will cause excess ice on the inside coil. You may need to remove the panels to see how much ice is on it. It sounds like the compressor is good, as it is pretty cold. Just not cold enough. A deep freeze should be at least 0.

SOURCE: Can I Mount Casters with Screws into Bottom of Chest Freezer?

youyr best bet would be to build a frame that the casters are welded to and there are no holes in the outer shell of the freezer. some L shaped angle would work nicely for this application and then there would be plenty of support for when the freezer is loaded up with product. Be sure that teo of the casters are lockable and two in the swivel freely.

Green light on chest freezer flickering?


this just means the light is burning out (loosing its filament) it does not effect the operation of the freezer, it just is an indicator that you have power at the unit.

Orange light


Good Morning Raj, thank you for your post!

Are you referring to the orange light on the freezer is not working or the freezer itself is not running? May I have the model number? The serial tag, which lists your model number, is typically located inside the cabinet, on the left side wall. With this information I can better address the issue at hand.

Red and Orange light staying on on my whirlpool chest freezer


try a total defrost,to clear any internal ice(every 12 months)then switch on and if you have a rapid freeze button leave on for 24 hours to get back to normal operating temp.if you have hard ice around the door seals then you have an air leak which you must sort out(try using a hot cloth to warm seals back into shape.....seals should fit all round, all the time.

Kenmore chest freezer does not stay below 30 degrees compressor runs but I don't see a fan to cool the compressor


If your chest freezer is less than 50 years old, it does not have a fan. Cooling coils contact inner walls of freezer compartment, warm coils dissipate heat through outside walls of freezer. If compressor runs, temp is 30+ degrees, gasket is OK, lid not left open, then you have one of two contions: 1. Low capacity compressor 2. Refrigerant leak. Solution to either is to replace freezer. (My opinion: Don't get a Kenmore brand, which generally ties you into poor warranty and slow and poor service.) No matter what brand name is on the freezer, it is most likely manufactured by Electrolux (in St. Cloud, MN) or Haier (from China). Look at the model / serial number plate before purchase to see where it was manufactured. Yes, the USA manufactured ones are better. (and I'm not just saying that because the plant is less than 15 miles from where I am sitting right now)
