Is my defrost timer broken or my thermostat? The freezer was holding -30 temp but now is at +30.


Is the compressor running? If not - the timer could be stuck in defrost mode. If it is ruinning, then the freezer coil should be cold. If it is choked with frost & ice - then the defrost heater isn't getting powered (bad timer or defrost terminator - or is getting powered but has burned out.

You should allow the ice and frost to melt completely before turning back on again. Typically ice and frost don't build up so bad in a few days time to cause the temperature rise you're describing If getting cold - the compressor and refrigerant is likely OK, if not the defrost circuit is suspect. If compressor running but not getting cold - a refrigerant leak / charge level may be causing the problem.

We have a Kenmore 16, model model 253.8283680, that recently continuously cycles on and off. What could be the problem associated with this?


Hello;



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



The normal cycle is: Your compressor will turn on to raise the freezer temperature 20 degrees F. above the set temperature, and then the compressor will shut off, Until the freezer temperature drops 20 degrees F. below the set temperature and again the compressor will turn on.



One of the main problems with this type of freezer is the door gasket becomes crushed over time or the door is so thin it becomes deformed.



Do not try to replace the door gasket. You have to soak the new gasket in hot water for 1/2 hour and then form it on the door.



If you notice a gap in the corner of the door - pull hard on it to get it flush.



Recondition the door gasket - With a hair dryer and a kitchen spatula, heat the gasket and try to expand the gasket by pulling out with the spatula.



You can purchase a special freezer lubricant. Be sure not to over do it. It can make the door hard to open. P/N 542638

1/2 Oz. $12.00.

Chest freezer suddenly stops working then will start again later


This is normal if your freezer is in good working condition. If your compressor runs constantly then there is a problem. Once the unit reaches the set temperature the compressor shuts down. The set temperature should be between -2 & +2 degree F. The set temperature also depends on how full the freezer is. There will be a time when the freezer like refrigerators will shut down. This is relative to the term, "Frost Free". The unit will shut down for about 10 minutes. This occurs ever 8-10 hours. The heater turns on to defrost your freezer coil. It sounds like you are in good shape.

Frigidaire Freezer acting goofy


Make sure everything is clean of debris and I would personally see if you could cool the area around the unit. Maybe use a fan or turn the air down in that room. Humidity and hot temps kill a unit's sealed system.

My GE freezer stopped cooling. I turned it off,


Hi
I think the problem you are experiencing might be due to the temperature control.
1. Check if the temperature control is off if you dont hear the freezer operating.

2.If you do not see an interior light,when you open the door,then make sure the freezer is properly plugged into an electrical outlet.

3.Move the temperature level to a colder level if the freezer is not cold enough.Warm weather can also be a factor.

4.Find the condenser and check to see if it needs to be cleaned. The condenser is located behind the decorative paneling at the bottom of the freezer.

5.If it doesnt work still then contact a technician.
GOODLUCK

New freezer set on 4. Runs a lot. Could we raise setting safely.


Yes you can raise the setting if you'd like. The rule of thumb is to raise it one number and allow it to adjust for 24 hours to see a change in internal temperatures. Freezers can run more for several reasons. One is the amount of product inside- the more the merrier. More frozen food will hold the temperatures longer. Another common issue is location, my own freezer is located in the garage at my house and runs quite a bit in the summer, as the temperature outside increases the lenght and frequency of the freezer running will increase. Freezers transfer the heat they remove from inside the box to the outside of the box, so the warmer it is outside, the longer they have to run to do the job.
Also be sure to keep a good eye on this, keep a thermometer in it and make sure you are not having to turn it way up to get it to "0 f" at least, as you may have a sealed system problem. Real ice cream (not fat free or sherbert) is a great indicator of temperatures- at 0 degrees f. real ice cream is firm but scoopable, 5 below and it's pretty hard, 5 above and is't starting to get soft on the outside.
Hope this was helpful to you!

Hi,

As the weather is getting warmer for many people their freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong. If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

I just moved into a home with a kenmore chest freezer. This is a real dumb question, but which symbol means on. Should the circle be showing for "on" or should the line be showing for "on"?


Some freezer models feature a temperature
monitor that provides an audible
alarm. The temperature monitor alarm is
located near the temperature control

The alarm sounds if the temperature in
the freezer rises 10° F (12° C) or more
above normal for selected setting. Alarm
may sound if temperature control dial is
turned to a much colder setting or if a
large amount of unfrozen food is added at
one time. Alarm is controlled by a three
position switch



0 = OFF prevents alarm from sounding
when freezer is warm, such as during
initial start-up or defrosting.
• ✓ = TEST sounds alarm regardless of
temperature. Alarm system should be
tested at least once a month.
1 = ON is proper setting for normal
freezer use. Return switch to 1 after
defrosting.
