    The freezer was just defrosted about a month ago. My Mom used a hair dryer plus pans of hot water to make the job go quicker. Does this unit have a kill switch if the pan gets too much water in it. Turning it off and on it makes no sound or atempt to come on.

That is a tough question to answer on the net but my suggestion would be to have a service tech. verify that it is the compressor and not a thermostat or something else less expensive before I made up my mind.
If it is the compressor the cost of parts and labor will be almost as much as a new one so I would just buy a new one.
Maybe your luck runs better than mine but most of the time with me if I spend a lot of money to repair an older appliance within six months something else goes wrong with it. Good luck and thank you

    To the best of my knowledge this model won't do anything if the defrost pan gets to full other than make a mess. I would recommend paying a service call charge to make sure the compressor is bad before I bought a new unit. I'm sorry I don't have a wiring diagram for your fridge so I can't tell you how to by-pass the thermostat to make sure it is not your problem. Thank you.

Hi James.

Most Kenmore upright freezers use a backup battery located at the lower part of the appliance. When the battery is low the freezer will beep continuously. If the unit has been off for a long time, and if the unit uses a battery, then the battery may need replacement.

Here a picture of the battery in its housing, located in the lower front part of the freezer.

The light on the front of my upright freezer is mot working and the inside of the freezer seems warmer. How do I fix this?


it may be froze up, and require a defrosting. use a portable fan to speed up this process , also make sure the fan in the freezer compartment is working, with a little work and a zoom spout oiler, or some light motor oil, the motor can be sparked back to life.you also may want to remove the light bulbs, they are a great heat generator . freeze ups are common with the high humidity we are having these days.. jay the pool pump motor repair guy longwood Florida

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.

Freezer stopped working


A no power to the compressor is a good sign as far as being repairable is concerned. Locate the temperature control. Unplug the freezer and jumper the two main wires that connect to the control. Plug it in and if the unit runs replace the thermostat.
