Question about Kenmore 20.3 cu. ft. / 575 liter Upright Freezer 23024

1 Answer

2 months ago or so, found puddle of water in front of our freezer; about 1 month ago ice cream in freezer became soft. High temp alarm went off a week ago--I've checked the temperature intermittenly and usually 20 degrees but once or twice 30 derees, ice cream soft, juice melted but most everything else solid. Possible solution?

Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

Temperature alarm light is on and a small amount of water is noted on the floor at the bottom of the freezer. Ice cream is a little soft.


The defrost element has failed, ice buildup will be noted at the inside rear of unit lower. Replace defrost element (service tech required). fixed and many years trouble free, very common.

I have a kenmore upright freezer and can't remember which setting it should be on. It has coldest 1 2 3 etc.


I keep min two notches from the coldest setting.A great way to check where you should set yous,is ice cream.Put an open container of ice cream in the freezer,and turn the freezer to coldest.The next day try to scoop the ice cream.If the ice cream is hard the freezer is too cold.Adjust the freezer two notches ,and try the ice cream the next day.Repeat till you are happy with the hardness of the ice cream.It should be easy to scoop but not too soft.

the alarm light is conected threw to the thermostat and is disighned to worn you if the freezer has wormed up obove freezing tepteratures. it is on and the freezer is still working ok then there is a fault in the control. Please check the temperature using ice creem as you gage if the freezer holds icecream to a hard consistancy then the freezer is working good . ice cream hardens at around -10 f anything wormer and its soft . you could have the control replased but the standard replacement controls dont have the temp alarm options. hope this helped. p/s if you are living in a worm climate enshure the freezer has adiquit air cerculation oround the cabinet.
