Question about Kenmore Freezer 24462

Open Question

I have a Kenmore freezer model number 253.23414100 and the warning light and buzzer is going off. I noticed water coming from underneath and the outer side walls are very warm/hot to the touch. I manually defreosted it and turned it back on. About 30 minutes later the alarm went off again and once again the outer side walls were very warm. Any ideas or suggestions would b greatly appreciated.

SOURCE: Kenmore Upright Freezer Alarm

1. You can hear the compressor running.

2. The temp setting you turn the thermostadt to starts and stops the compressor.

3. Look in your manual for a reset button and the location.

4. If you are familiar with a meter, grab the manual and check it it. But I doubt it is the resistance.

5. Sounds like a bad motor or low freon. If you have a lot of food in it, and the above didn't work, bite the bullet and call a repairman, although it sounds like much of the food is past saving if it is really defrosted.

SOURCE: Ice on back wall of freezer, food not staying completely frozen

Do you have the complete model number from the tag on the freezer, it should be either on the bottom rail visible with the door open or on the side wall near the front. I am trying to look this up to see if it is an automatic defrost model, if so you may need to do more than just unthaw and adjust

Thanks

I have an older model chest freezer. The alarm buzzer and light came on. I silenced the buzzer but the light is still on. The freezer is cold and still freezing well. Door is good and closed. It’s running...


Without a posted make and model number, it is hard to say. You need to unplug the unit from the power for a couple of minutes and then plug it back in to see if it resets

Kenmore freezer buzzer


I would need to model number to check if you have a on/off for you over temp alarm. That "Buzzer" is a over temp alarm. If you fridge uses a 9volt battery then you might need to replace the battery. Please post your model number.

Kenmore side by side water leaking from freezer


You can buy a kit from whirlpool. In the kit is a metal tab that mounts onto the defrost heater. It is long enough to go into the hole. When the heater comes on for defrost the heat transfers down to the hole and keeps it from getting plugged up with ice. Part number 819043

Kenore Elite Freezer is hot on the sides


Sears has a complete model number system that is confusing I know. Sears made it that way. Not sure why but look around the cold food door while open and look near bottom on the frame just above the kick plate. The number looks like this, (model No. 253.64802400 for example) I will need that number to help you solve the sound alert coming from your refrigerator. Find that number and we can go from there, Thanks, Sea Breeze
