Question about Frigidaire FRT15G4B Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Freezer GFI reset

I own a Kenmore 15 cu. ft. chest freezer (model # 253.19531994). It is 4-5 years old and has worked flawlessly until last week. It now intermittently trips the GFI outlet it is plugged in to. I have replaced the outlet, but the problem continues.

Just before these symptoms started, the freezer's door was ajar for several days, which may have made the compressor and motor turn on more frequently, or maybe even run continuously. Would the higher compressor duty cycle cause this type of failure? If so, how do I fix it?

No what rpobebly happened is that your freezer fillefd up with humidity and now its shorting out and tripping the breaker. make sure that theres no ice in the freezer also you should not really have it plugged intoi a gfi outlet.if its in the garage near the breaker panel i would add a dedicatefd outlet for the freezer from the electrical box.

My kenmore chest freezer is not freezing but it forms ice on the top on a bucket i placed in the bottom


That sounds like it is just barely working. It could be a refrigerant (freon) leak. How old is this freezer? And what model is it?

Need to replace the 9 volt battery in my kenmore freezer chest.


The manual does not tell you where its at but the 9-volt battery holder is located on the lower left side of the freezer. There is a small panel about 9" off the floor and towards the front of the freezer (left side facing). cd6fa25d-9930-4b53-8883-c0ebcde8413d1.03.01
