Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

The 9vdc battery should be just below the door on the right hand side, ( from facing the front ) some models have it behind the toe panel/grill in said location...lower r/h.

That should answer your question. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Please take a moment to rate the info provided here today.

regards,

macamrkus :)

Hi James.

Most Kenmore upright freezers use a backup battery located at the lower part of the appliance. When the battery is low the freezer will beep continuously. If the unit has been off for a long time, and if the unit uses a battery, then the battery may need replacement.

Here a picture of the battery in its housing, located in the lower front part of the freezer.

Victory fs-2d-s7 Not defrosting properly suspect defrost heaters are bad where are the heaters located and are they easy to replace.


The heater is usually attached to the evaporator. I test it by disconnecting the ends and powering it with 110 volts using a cord with alligator clips on the end, or just using an ohmmeter and testing for continuity. If it is good test the limiter for continuity while it is frozen, it will be open when it is at room temp. the last culprit is the defrost timer.

My freezer is not cold. The temperature dial reads 1-5 then an igloo and a snowflake. Do I put it on the snowflake to get it cold or the igloo?


Hello,

Insufficient cooling is a fridge repair job that you can do without the help of a professional. Often the fridge has a frost-free failure, or the compressor is faulty but there are many other reasons for a fridge not cooling properly.
Step 1 - Find the Problem

Your first job is to locate the source of the problem. Consider each of the following:

* Gaskets - Make sure the gaskets/seals are not torn and are sealing properly.
* Evaporator fan - Make sure it is working. If it is now working you may have a problem with the fan motor. Check for power to the motor and also examine the fan switches around the door (not all fridges have these switches).
* Air damper - Sometimes the air damper will not open up to allow the cold air from the freezer part to blow into the fridge section.
* Condenser coils - Check to see that the condenser coils don't have a dust build-up and that the condenser motor is working.
* Compressor - Make sure your compressor is working with on and off clicking noises.

Step 2 - Frost-Free Failure

This is the most common cooling problem in fridges. Expose the evaporator coils by accessing the panel in the freezer section. The coils in the freezer section can sometimes get clogged up with frost. This can stop the evaporator fan motor from blowing cold air around, or cause the fan to hit it and stop, or become noisy. The defrost timer can be a bit tricky to find but it is usually located behind the back bottom corners of the fridge, although they can sometimes be found in the ceiling of the fresh food section, or behind the cold control cover.
Step 3 - Find the Timer

When you find the timer, turn the wheel-like screw slowly with a screwdriver until the fridge shuts off. The refrigerator is now defrosting. If you find that the fridge starts now, you will need to replace the defrost thermostat and the defrost timer.
Step 4 - Volt Test

If the heaters do not come on, use a volt meter to ohm test the defrost heater or volt test for 120 volts to the heater. You can bypass the defrost thermostat if you haven't got power to the defrost heater to check if the defrost heater will come on. To bypass the thermostat, join the two wires together. Replace the defrost thermostat and the defrost timer if the heater comes on now.

If there is a ticking or squealing noise in the defrost timer, or it seems hot to touch, replace it.

Many fridges have and inline fuse on both sides of the defrost heater. You will need to replace the whole heater if one of those fuses blows. Check these fuses with a volt meter if the defrost heater doesn't work.

A quick check if you have a cooling problem is to inspect the evaporator coils. If there is a build up of white snow on the coils, this indicates a frost free problem; if there is balled ice on part of the coils with the rest bare, this indicates a system problem, like a problem with the pumping compressor.
Take care in solving the problem....

We need to know how much power the 3.6 cu-ft danby freezer uses as we have solar power. Would like to run off the batteries if possible


Hi, well its 120 volts a/c, 60hz, and you would have to look on the data plate to see what the total amperage it draws. If you are wanting to run it off of batteries, it can be done, You would need to figure out how many dc batteries it would take to do this and I have seen mobile homes have 240 volts a/c to there home running on batteries alone. You would need a rectifier to change dc to ac voltage. I would recommend making some calls on how to figure this out as far as what all you need to do this as I could not walk you through this, only if I were there. Call an electrical wholesale parts house and tell them what you want. They will be able to supply the dc rectifier to change dc to ac and they would be able to tell you where to go to get the right batteries and how to run them together to produce 120 volts ac voltage. Please keep me posted on your progress and if you need further help. Good Luck,

Kenmore freezer depleting 9 volt batteries, setting off alarm


trojo50,
your defrost elements are not working or the water inlet for the evaporator tray is clogged. That alarm is to let you know something else has triggered it. This could be s imple DYI solution or require a service call. let me know if you are up for the DYI.

Kenmore Freezer Alarm


You can take the batteries out that power the alarm system. They are located through a small access panel/door front bottom right of the unit. If you bought the unit at Sears, you should call 1-800-4MYHOME and ask a technician if a replacement manual is available, or if they can direct you to a website for it.
