Kenmore upright freezer

I am going to be moving a Kenmore upright freezer. If I unplug it, do I have to take any special precautions? Will a lot of water be involved? If so, what can I do to minimize the mess it makes?

It is best to unplug the unit, open the door fully and let stand 24 hrs. to thoroughly defrost. Empty the drain pan if so equipped.
Wipe out interior with a dry cloth, then locccck or otherwise secure the door so that it cannot open. Place a moving cart on the non-hinge side to transport it, and never lay it on its back.

Electronic control on Kenmore (by Frigidaire) upright freezer worked when first plugged in, but though Ive tried both holding down & frantically pressing the UP arrow, seems to be stuck on OFF mode.


I am Taking a guess at this. May or may not work. Have you tried unplugging the unit?, and leaving it unplugged for 5 or 10 minutes? I have noticed with everything these days having electronics involved, severing power often resets everyuthing to a default position. You might try it if you haven't already.
also, there should be in the owners manual an 800 number
to call for assistance from the mfr.thwy usually have a tech you can talk to. good luck!

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 to see if there is a reset on the compressor or close to it. Turn your control knobs up and down and see if you hear a "click". You might cause it to engage at that point. Let me know how this does.

Moving a Kenmore upright freezer


there would be a problem if you lay it down. it should be moved up right or max 45 degrees tilt only. oil in the compressor could go to the evaporator and clog it.

front handles could be remove only from the inside. you have to remove the plastic rack of the door and remove the insulation in order to see the bolt holding the handle.
