Question about Kenmore 13.7 cu. ft. / 388 liter Upright Freezer 23424

1 Answer

Defaults to 0 deg. temp

I have a Kenmore upright freezer that is now approx 1 1/2 yrs old. For some reason when the power goes off for any length of time the freezer sets to a 0 degree default temp. ( which means not cold 7 being the coldest). This has happened several times and I just thought well ok its a fluke until about the 4th time I lost about $400. worth of food. I am told that there is no recall on this . I am wondering if anyone else has had this issue? Kenmore 13.7 cubic ft. 388 liter freezer.

    I don't know if I have the same freezer (my model # is 253.21041105), but when I get either electrical storms or power bumps my freezer will completely shut down and will not power back up unless I physically disconnect it from the power source. I even put it on a power strip with a CB on it, and I had to shut the power strip off, turn it back on and then hit the power button on the freezer. Without the power strip I have had to unplug the freezer from the outlet to get it to power back up. Last night I put a surge protector on the outlet and plugged the strip into that, we are expecting storms today so I see how it goes. My question is....is there some kind of shunt trip circuit in the freezer where any power surge or bump might cause it to lock out the freezer power supply?

SOURCE: problem with upright freezer not freezing

It sounds like the unit is low on freon or the compressor is going bad. You have several other components that could be affecting this as well. Make sure the coils are free from dust and clean underneath. This is a bit premature for you to have problems now, especially since it is a Sears product.

SOURCE: Freezer outside walls are very hot. Not maintaining temp

Hi, The walls are getting hot because that is where the condesor coils are. The condensor coils are where the heat is disperst that is trap as the coolant pumps through the evaporator coils inside. The fact that it is holding 0 degrees is a good sign. Is this freezer in a garage?
Check the door seals to make sure no heat is getting into the freezer other then when the door is opened.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: Re: danby upright freezer 20.1 cubic ft., model #

The lower hinge on each door may have a door closing cam. It raises the door up ¼ inch when opening and this assist in closing the door. If it’s wore out and doesn’t work the door may not seal and the gasket can be damaged. Watch the operation of the door to see if it rises up when opened.

Leave the door shut and let the magnetic gasket hold the door in place. Put something between the bottom of the door and the floor to hold it in case it slips.
Remove the bracket holding the pin and hinge assembly taking note of order of removal of parts. Slide new cams on. You probably need two.

My Kenmore Upright Freezer Model 25326432100 flashed "ER."


My freezer was purchased in February, 2004. It is a self defrosting freezer but ice has started forming along the bottom shelf and back wall. Also, after cleaning the freezer the other day it has stopped clycing. The freezer will stop running only if I turn it down to the #1 setting and then it will not come back on. If I turn it up to a higher setting the compressor will not stop running. It ran for over 24 hours and would not cycle unless I turned it off or set it at the #1 setting. When I unplugged it and pulled it away from the wall, there was a green water spot the size of a dinner plate underneath the freezer. Help!! Very Unhappy this freezer is only 6 years old. S in Phila.

Low temp alarm goes off on Kenmore upright freezer


The alarm is there for a reason. I wouldn't disconnect it. Maybe the compressor is low on gas. If your thermostat is on extremely low, try moving it up to a less cold position. Look in your owner's manual for recommended settings.

Failing that, get ready to shell out some bucks to the service man!

Check these two things first.  1.  Is there a thick frost buildup on the back panel at the bottom half of the freezer?  2.  Do you hear the fan running inside the freezer?  Let me know what you find.
