    Kenmore 15.0 cubic foot automatic defrost upright freezer - lost power for about 10 hours several weeks ago. Before power came back on we were able to run drop cord from neighbors and plug freezer so food wouldn't thaw out. After power came back on we repluged into our outlet and the alarm came on. After the alarm going off for awhile, we manually cut the alarm off - the alarm light is still on and when you turn the alarm to on, it starts going off. The freezer is working fine, keeping everything frozen as it should, we just can't get the alarm light and alarm to go off. What should we do next.

Use a freezer thermometer and tell me the actual temperature. Or at least store some ice cream and see if it stays brick hard. Unless I have some idea of the actual temp I can't tell if defective freezer or alarm

SOURCE: FREEZER ALARM WILL NOT SHUT OFF

You can try 2 things. Unplug it for about 2-3 minutes and then replug it. It should reset itself. You can silence the alarm or muffle it. Silencing it should be hard. Disconnect it from its source. You may want to find out why it is alarming constantly. Have you called Sears and asked them?

Temp Alarm going off, when freezer seems to be cooling fine.


You need to check the temp in the freezer to make sure it's down to around 10 degrees. The alarm will go off much above that.

The alarm keeps going off. Food is frozen fine just alarm


That alarm is there for a reason. Grab your owner's manual and see the different things it can mean. If the gas is getting low, that could be it, and you'll want to solve it as early as you can.

Sometimes a power surge or brown out can make that alarm go off. Try unplugging it for 5 minutes.

is it possible the door has not been closed at some point?
If so they can build up with ice in the evaporator which the defrost system cannot handle....Try a manual defrost.
Depending on where the unit is installed high ambient temperature can drop the internal temp enough to set the alarm off though they will still freeze sufficiently
