This is normal until all the freon has had a chance to get recirculated throgh the system.
make sure the evaporator fan is also working in order to properly cool the freezer.

When i moved my kic chest freezer model kc0021-Aa, I heard an light explosive sound and now the freezer does not go on.


The following is the GE moving instructions. If you have started before the 24 hour rest period and the unit had been rotated from vertical have the compressor inspected.

FREEZER MOVING INSTRUCTIONS Please use the following steps when relocating an upright or chest freezer:
  1. Disconnect the power cord from the wall receptacle.
  2. Remove the food, defrost, and clean the freezer.
  3. Use blankets to protect the freezer finish from scratches.
  4. Place the freezer on its side for moving only if you have no other choice.
  5. When transporting a freezer, keep it in an upright position. If transporting it in an upright position is not possible, lay it down on the compressor side of the unit. Be careful to secure the door to prevent it from opening.
  6. If it has been transported on its side, set it right side up in its final location and allow the freezer to sit for the same amount of time that it was on its side (24 hrs max.). Do not plug the unit into the electrical receptacle without allowing this settling time. The unit can be damaged if it is plugged in prematurely.

If the unit was transported in an upright position there is no waiting time required.


Hope this helps?

Seal needs to be replaced around door. Make sure magnetic strip is tight against sides of refrigerator, even if you have to cut the outside so it lays flat against the sides.

Freezer door has a gap in the middle. Seal doesn't


Put a long straight edge on the door to verify a warp. A 4 foot level is good for this test.
If the door is in fact warped. You should pull back on the seal,loosen the screws behind the seal holding the door liner in place,adjust the door to the straight edge and re-tighten the screws.
If the straight edge does not show a warped door,take a hair dryer and heat the seal where it is off the frame. Do this with the door closed and you will see the seal relax and touch the frame. Let it cool in this position before opening the door again.
If neither of these is the cause,loosen the door hinge and re-adjust the door position,then re-tighten the hinge screws.

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 .

Self defrosting deep freeze not defrosting


The excess frost in those areas is probably caused by leaky door gasket seals. They should be tight enough to hold a dollar bill securely all the way around. A defrost problem would start on the coils behind the back cover inside the freezer and would also appear on the back wall before it did on the door edges.

I bought a used Kenmore upright freezer, it's been on for over 24 hrs, and it freezeswell, BUT won't turn off. Runs alllll the time. Any suggestions??


Did you transport it STANDING or LYING down?
If Standing 4 possibilities:
1. The thermostat is hosed (replace)I had one like this and just put it on a $6.00 24hr time to turn on for 1hr every 5 hrs. (New Thermostat was $40.00)

2. The heat exchange fins on the back are dirty(clean with broom and air/vacuum cleaner)

3. The Door seals arent sealing and cold air is falling out the bottom, pulling hot air in the top (rehang door or replace seal) Note: a piece of paper 2" by 8" should be hard to pull out all the way around when closed. Like a cash register reciept. Cleaning with armor-All and then thinly coating with Vaseline may help
4. The Freon is shot and needs a recharge. (Costs $40-100.00)

If transported Lying down, there is now air in the lines and it needs to stand OFF for 24hrs. You may have hosed the pump with the air/freon mix, but let it stand so the air can surface and retry

My freezer isnt freezing at all!


The worst thing u can do to a refrig/freezer in transport is lay it down. Hopefully that is not the case as it would ruin your compressor. Otherwise, check for proper airflow (behind and underneath) to the condensor fan near the compressor (dust, etc. across condensor coils) ,check for proper door seals. Is the unit in a much warmer room than before? Defrost timer could be stuck in defrost ( or computer control for defrost , depending on model).
