Sounds like you are low on charge, recover out and weigh a new charge in.

What to do if you have a freon leak in the freezer


charge with detail (that is a Freon with Red dy solution to help locate your system leak) locate leak, repair using silver solder, evacuate system completely, pull vacuum down to 27" plus Lbs. vacuum, close system to hold vac pressure, monitor pressure for 30 minute or so, if vacuum hold pressure then you have successfully fixed your system leak, next hook up your system to the manifold gages assembly to a Freon supply source, all this while retainning your vacuum pressure, slowly crack open the valve on the manifold to allow the new freon to enter your system until you see pressure building up in you system, next monitor the discharge line i.e. the bigger line until you see frost extending outside of your freezer unit toward your compressor assembly, then close the freon supply valve, wait for a while to see if the frost line recede into the unit box, if it does not recede but stay out of the box or extend some more then you must must release some freon slowly a very small amount at the time until the frost line has regressed into your freezer box. this should complete your repair, good luck

How lpw of a temp. Can this freezer reach..and and if only 0 degree could the thermostat temp control be changed out so it could reach les than 0 temperatures like negative 20 or so?


There are different models made for holding different products. Yours has a 1/3 hp compressor for above 20 degs. It may have 0 on the thermostat and may well pull down that far, but -20 would be out of it's reach. Where as it's sister model is made to freeze to below zero has a 3/4 hp compressor. Larger compressor for the lower temps.

With compressor removed, should I be able to pump down the coils (low side and high side) by hooking the the vacuum to the low side?? I've hooked my vacuum that way but I get no vacuum pull through the...


I guess you are changing the compressor on this unit, normally if you wish to check the circuit is clear you would attach a 1/4" shraeder stub to the discharge tube with the compressor removed and use OFN at around 200psi and see if it comes out of the suction tube (it will be a gentle flow). If you get no flow the 2 obvious areas are

1. Filter drier, this should be replaced as a matter of course during a compressor change.
2. Blocked capilliary tube, there are a couple of capilliary cleaners on the market but unless you are going to do this often you may be better buying a new capilliary from your Kenmore dealer.

Once you are satisfied that the circuit is clear then refit the compressor with a shraeder stub and leak test with OFN to 13 bar (200psi) for 30 mins, release the OFN from the system then connect the vacuum pump and a Torr or Vacuum guage, you need to get to 5 torr (-29.5inHg) for at least 30 mins. Then add the correct weighed charge of refrigerant.

Hope this helps

The temperature control is not working. It is stuck at 0. The freezer is not cooling. However, the lights are on inside.


COOLING

Dust on the condenser coils can cause overheating, observe safety precautions then clean coils. Switch off the unit before you clean them. If the problem persists, test the compressor for overheating. Overheating will cause many problems with cooling ability. Leave the unit unplugged for 3 hours and plug it in again. If it starts working, the compressor is probably overheating (Observe cautions with food going bad). A simple cause of the problem might also be that there is not enough airflow Lack of airflow is the number one cause of compressor problems and thus an owner purchasing another unit for hundreds of dollars when you can fix it for free.There should be at least several inches distance between the sides and walls/cupboards/ceiling.

Electrical

There is an in-line fuse mounted in the line supplying the power to the ice-maker. It is in the wire clipped to the side, change out this fuse asap. It is actually a 20-amp fused, associated with the grounded electrical supply.

PARTS

You may order parts very cheap from here

TIME TO CHANGE YOUR FILTER

While your on the back of the system, please check the filter. There is a filter in the back of the fridge in the upper right hand side. If you do not change it, it will slow down the frig and burn it out permanently.

You have a problem with the ADC.

Frigidaire has also jumped into the market with an adaptive defrost board. The fresh food section light switch and light bulb must work. To initiate a defrost cycle, open the door and push the light switch in and out 5 times within 6 seconds. The compressor and fans should shut off and the defrost heater should come on. Open the door and push the light switch in and out 5 times within 6 seconds to remove the refrigerator from the defrost mode and back into a cooling mode.



This product comes equipped with an Adaptive Defrost Control (ADC). To activate manual defrost, press and hold the Freezer temperature UP (WARMER) key while pressing the Fresh Food temperature DOWN (COLDER) key 5 times within 6 seconds. A "d" in the freezer temperature window and "F" in the refrigerator temperature window will display when the heater is activated. To deactivate manual defrost, press and hold Freezer temperature UP (WARMER) key while pressing the Fresh Food temperature DOWN (COLDER) key 5 times within 6 seconds. "d" and "F" will be displayed until the defrost cycle is complete. (approx. 8 minutes)

Freezer @ +28 deg/appears common problem B 1st 2 answer right....


Model numbers of Kenmore , starting with 253. are made by Frigidare . The compressor probably has a valve out , either the high-side , or low-side . Probably the low-side valve is bad , therefore , the high-side will pump but not get the freezer as cold as it should be . Both sides have to work . Low-side helps pull the refrigerant thru the system , while the high-side pumps pressure thru the system .

The front surface of the chest freezer is pretty hot.


the condenser lines are between the walls of the frzr and if it has a fan to cool the compressor down and it is stalled is the reason the walls are so hot and no it will not cool down over time if new is a flaw in making of this unit take it back or if older only the side should be getting warm not hot then if older be cautious of this no repair can be done on these type of unit they are between foam filled walls....

Traulsen ur 48 dt freezer want go below 10 deg


The first place to look is to check the charge. Using guages check the low and high side pressures and their relationship to one another. I'm assuming your unit is a R-404 unit which, if fully charged and the condenser is clean, and the fan is operating, should have about 210 to 250 high side pressure. Other things to check: evaporator coil ice/frost free; defrosting properly to obtain a clean coil; all evaporator fans running. If low side pressure is above 30 PSI you have a weak compressor. Whatever, fix the Traulsen unit, its head and shoulders above anything else on the market today.
