It sounds like a compressor issue either the unit has lost pressure on the free on side, bad compressor, low free on or gases, or cooling fan for the compressor to keep it cool stoped working. thanks

PARTS NUMBER


Hello Jerry;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You need to provide a model number for me to give you the gasket part number and price. The model number is on a label in your fresh food section on the upper side wall.

You have a bottom freezer, Right? These bottom freezer drawers are had to seal all of the time. They can get off track and not seal properly. It is not uncommon for them to ice up around the door gasket.

Lets try this first:

1.) Clean the gasket.

2.) With a hair dryer and a kitchen spatula, Heat the gasket while pulling gentle out on the gasket, to expand the gasket.

3.) Run a piece of paper between the gasket and the freezer front. If you can do this, then you still do not have a solid seal.

Frezzer keeps icein over


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

There are several things to check:

1.) Door Gasket -Take a piece of paper. With the freezer door closed run the paper around the gasket. If you can do that, then you are not getting a good seal.
Repair: Clean the freezer door gasket with soap and water. While still wet, take a hair dryer and a spatula, going around the gasket, heat the gasket while pulling the gasket out to expand it.
Note: This only solves the problem if there is frost in the front area of your freezer.

2.) Freezer fan not working - In some cases, The freezer fan helps to prevent warm air from getting into the freezer.

3.) Food Storage - Make sure you do not overload the freezer, and that the food product is inside the bounds of the racks.

4.) Fresh Food Section Air Vent Wide Open - This is your probable cause: Heat goes to Cold like a magnet. When you open your fresh food section door and then close it you are forcing warm air up the vent that goes to the freezer. You probably have a broken air vent assembly.

HI,my freezer runs fine,but I noticed where the motor side is,should there be a fan??,I feel no air moving.didn`t try to take off cover an look.an the freezer gets alot of ice at the top sides.thanks


Good day,
Unlike most refrigerators and upright freezers, they don't use a fan motor. The condenser coils are imbedded in the walls of the machine, and need no supplemental cooling.

As to the ice buildup, sounds as if the gasket isn't sealing well enough. You could try cleaning the gasket thoroughly, and check the alignment of the lid to the body.
Appliance parts houses carry a food compatible spray, which may help make the vinyl more pliable.
If that doesn't work well enough, then the only option is replacing the whole gasket.

With the model number, check with the supply house to see if the gasket is a replaceable style.

Our upright freezer door will not seal tight with a vacuum anymore. The freezer fills up with snow from the air drawn in. I have defrosted it and cleaned the seal. What should I do now?


That could be one of two things, one the door is not aligned properly and more important the gasket has failed and needs replacement. The snow as you call it is ice condensed from the atmospheric air that is getting by the gasket. You may want to check the door gasket and sealing surfaces especially in the area of the "snow".
Good luck,

Kenmore Freezer Model 253.26732104 Compressor


the defrost timer may need reseting. when the defrost is on, it cuts power to the compressor so they don't run at the same time. it's usually behind the bottom front grate on the right side. also check the main circuit board. there's a fuse on it.

My Kenmore freezer, model #253.9280212 runs but will not cool below 40 degrees. It runs all the time but I do not hear anything cut on and off. The freezer is 10 years old but looks brand new.


The first thing to check is door gasket< bad corners,gap in side,bottom or top. Close door on a dollar bill and try to slide it top to bottom side to side and if it slides fairly easy then seal is not doing good. If you find dirty area clean it off along with the cabinet side as well.If you find the side is leaking then heat gasket with hair dryer and apply vasoline to gasket to help it move freely. If you find tear or hole then replace it.

Freezer not cooling


ZoeM, I am thinking freeze up from humid conditions, too much 'window shopping' or bad door gasket (is that the seal of which you speak?). If the unit is only 9 months old...it has a full warranty. Don't do anything to it beyond what is described here.

Defrost the unit completely. If you can get warm air to the coils, do so. If not, leave it off and open for 2 days to completely defrost.

To check most door gaskets: first, make sure the gasket and its mating surface are both clean and visually undamaged. Next, test by simply closing the door on a piece of paper...use a strip about 2-3 inches wide and long enough to go inside the unit that you can slide across the gasket/frame surface. Close the door with the strip near any suspect areas. You should not be able to pull the strip out easily. Replace any damaged gaskets.

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
