Question about Kenmore 5 cu. ft. / 142 liter Upright Freezer 24501

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore 5 freezer, model 253.9135180. It's several years old granted but was working fine until 2 weeks ago. I unplugged it because it was clicking every minute or so like it was trying to turn on. It started to defrost the food and so I switched things from this freezer to the other because I thought it may have been too full (never been an issue in the past thought). How can I fix my freezer? Freon/coolant, thermostat, regulator....Help. I'm handy enough to fix it if I know what's wrong....needing it fixed before the holidays....THANKS.

Good day,
The clicking sound is the compressor trying to start and can't. The relay is clipped onto the side of the compressor and can be removed by pulling the relay off the compressor once the retrainer clamps are removed.
You can take the relay to most appliance parts houses. They Will be more than happy to test it. If it tests bad, replace it. If not, I'm afraid it is probably an internal problem with the compressor itself, and you will need to call a qualified tech since it will take special tools to test it.

FREEZER ALARM WILL NOT SHUT OFF


You can try 2 things. Unplug it for about 2-3 minutes and then replug it. It should reset itself. You can silence the alarm or muffle it. Silencing it should be hard. Disconnect it from its source. You may want to find out why it is alarming constantly. Have you called Sears and asked them?
