There is no reset switch. There is a thermal overload protector mounted on the compressor. Does the compressor hum and then give a click sound. If so your compressor has failed. If the compressor is cold (Room Temperature) and it does not try to run your thermostat may be bad. If so remove the temperature control and jumper the two main wires that connect to the control. Unit should be unplugged to do this operation. Insulated the wires so they do not contact any metal surface. Plug the freezer back in. If it runs and cools replace the thermostat.

Kenmore upright freezer does not shut off until door is opened. freezer seems to work well.


Going by the service manual it seems that everything is fine. The fan is supposed to run while the door is shut and the compressor is supposed to run 12 hours and then a 30 min defrost cycle comes on then the cycle starts over again. I am posting the service manual, parts and wiring diagram for you to view if you so choose. https://files.acrobat.com/a/preview/8a6d6ca4-04b6-4cfa-b435-3980042b3ad3

I accidently turned off freezer.How do i turn it back on?


Turn the interior temperature control back on by setting at approx halfway between "off" and "coldest". (Make certain the branch circuit is hot - you should hear the compressor turn on when you set the control, possible an interior light will come on as well).

If the freezer does not run, check to see if you accidiently pulled the flash defrost plnger (if equipped). (See age 8 in your manual).

Need manuel for a Kenmore frostless quick freezer model #253.9280410


I don't have a manual but these are fairly simple. On the back inside below is a defrost heater and terminator sorta like this:themobilian_747.jpg
The cold control maintains the temp and their is a timer that either puts it in run for 10 hours or defrost for 21 minutesthemobilian_748.jpgThe compressor relay goes out on these. The defrost heater or defrost heater termination themostat can cause defrost failure if bad.Not much to these babys.

Unit has been un-plugged for about a year, I plugged it in today it started right up and was cooling fine, it made a snap and the blower and compressor both quit running. The inside and door lights are...


Just in case, leave it plugged in for another 60 minutes, its quite possible it went into the defrost cycle, in which case no motors will run. If it continues to remain silent, re post your problem.

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.

My freezer's defrost systems runs constantly


i dont think so i would look at the compressor kicking out on thermal overload or a faulty thermostat thermostats have two settings cut in cut out your cut in could be bad and not turning the compressor on till the temp reaches melting temps now if your hearing a click buzz then you need to look at the compressor and make sure the compressor fan is running but its not a defrost promblem

Kenmore


when its running how hot are the sides the starting amps are too high and 1.5 running amps ain't bad now the the cut in cut out are too high if you look on the dial that the mid point settings that's where you should have it not on 1 1 is hot set it on the straight line that's where you should do all your testing colder settings go up not down you could be overheating the compressor by making it come on too quick the freezer should be about -10 or so do you see any gaps in the gasket

Sides of freezer extremely hot


if there is air getting into the freezer because the door is not sealing properly the unit will run because it is sensing it is not cold enough inside. your unit releses the heat from the refrigerant through copper tubing that runs through the cabinet, and thats why it is hot. you need to level the unit make sure the door is sealing on the top bottom and both sides ansd then the freezer will work properly and be able to shut off after it has come down to the proper temp.
