Question about Freezers

1 Answer

This is an upright Kenmore freezer. It keeps cold for a few months and then loses its coldness. Turning up the thermostat has no effect. This has become very frustrating since we have to throw out the food when it fails to keep freezing temperatures.

I suspect, you have low refrigerant in freezer. You may have a leaking pipes. Please get fix the leaks first the top up your refrigerant to normal level.

The temp alarm keeps sounding,I turn it off and in about 12 hrs it alarms again. The food is frozen and inside still cold


It sounds like the sensor has gone bad. You can either replace it or disable it. Of course if you disable it, obviously you lose that feature. If you want to replace it, you can get the part at kenmore.com or possible W.W. Grainger or APCO.

Kenmore Frost Free Comm. Model #253-23425100 - will not stay cold


Two things:

Either the thermostat has inadvertently been turned up, (too warm) or the gas in the compressor tank is low. If it isn't #1, call a repair tech to replentish the has in your compressor. If that isn't it he will tell you what he thinks it is. Good luck!

Not Freezing, but cold


The thermostat should be a close circuit when requesting cold temps. or when asking the compressor to come on. The exterior surface on some freezers warm when asking for cold inside. Yours has a condenser coil on the back and that should warm when cooling. If compressor is runningit should be wrm if no freon has leaked from freezer somewhere.
The defrost timer should rotate clockwise during the day and give approx. 3 defrost daily or about every 8 hours. Until the thermostat is resolved and asks for a closed circuit the compressor will not come on. Unplug freezer from outlet,remove thermostat wires, then turn the thermostat to its coldest setting and check again. If no closed circuit the thermostat will need replaced first. Hope this has helped you, Sea Breeze

Kenmore freezer not cold at all!


We had a Kenmore upright which worked fine but then suddenly was not keeping food frozen. Long story short, do not store anything on top of the freezer unit. It will insulate the coils that run across the top of the unit, and cause your compressor to work harder than it needs to, and eventually overheat and become ineffective. Says nothing about it in the user manual. We learned the hard way by losing food.
