Question about Kenmore Freezer 20.3 cu. ft. Frost Free Upright Freezer
Saw your good advice on another Kenmore post and hope you can help me out.
I brought my Kenmore to Haiti and it stopped working properly. Local tech came over today and after testing power through the heating coil alone and then through the coil with a black cylindrical unit about 1.5 inch in diameter (which I think is a thermostat) both resulted in the heating coil heating. So, he is convinced that it is the controllers in the electronics that is malfunctioning and not telling the heating coil to defrost. This results in ice buildup and only the bottom 1/3 of the unit freezes and the compressor runs non-stop.
Are we on the right track ? I should add that we have frequent power outages and I have to run the freezer on city power and then on an inverter and a bank of 16 - 6V batteries. Could these changes in power have affected the electronics ?
Should I order a new electronics board to replace it ?
Well don't be surprised, these electronic fridges run on dc electronics also and are sensitive to power surges. is this the freezer because there's no thermostats just the limit control. use a surge protector on the outlet to protect the electronics. if your still having problems get the limit sensors changed first (if applicable). if you want to go the safe way, I'd consider buying a surge protector and connecting it to the power.you can e-mail me with any questions @ email@example.com
