Without the model number I'm not sure how to answer your question. Does your model have fans that blow warm air on the outside bottom or a front kick plate? What is your model number? Kenmore has model numbers like this example=> 123.3214567 If the fan has a restriction that causes a lack of airflow it can cause the hot Freon liquid that normally flows around the Yoder Loop inside edges of the freezer door to prevent frost buildup to become very hot because the condenser fan is defective or coils are dirty with dust restricting airflow. If the outside is hot you may have a defective condenser fan motor. That will cause the freezer to ger hot. I am here should you want my assistance....Sea Breeze

My Kenmore 9 upright freezer feels warm on the outside, what could be the cause. I have defrosted and cleaned it already and seems to work fine. however i am concerned with the outside temperature. Please...


Hi,

This is normal. The condenser coils on freezers are typically located in the walls.

The refrigerator in your kitchen has condenser coils that are hot either under the frig or on the back. Freezers do not need as much heat transfer on the coils with the air so they put them in the walls, it is called a warm wall condenser. It may even feel hot to the touch if you happen to feel it near the end of a cooling cycle. It will be the warmest close to the compressor and cool off at it makes it around the cabinet down to the other side.

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 .

I have an upright Frigidaire freezer. The outsides (left and right) are hot to the touch. Is it a problem?


No. Instead of exposed coils on the back side, many (most) freezers place the condenser coils near the outer wall of the freezer to disipate the waste heat removed from inside the freezer. It will not be as noticable when the freezer is not running, and is completely normal.

The sides of my Kenmore freeze get very hot (138 F)


This is normal. The refrigerant lines run through the sides and get hot.

Kenmore upright freezer. left and right outside box sides are fairly warm. Is this common?


yes. This is the way freezers work. Every freezer will do this. If the freezer doesnt do this it generally does not work properly. So to answer your question... its nothing to worry about.
