Question about Kenmore 13.7 cu. ft. / 388 liter Upright Freezer 23424
This is a 1992 model 253.9203282. It stopped running. I took the thermostat case off and shorted the contacts, it still did not run. I got underneath and measured the run capacitor with a capacitance meter and it checked out correctly. I examined the overload and it looked like it was good. I measured 20 vac at the PTC Starter. I am tempted to buy a replacement PTC Starter Relay, but for $58 that's taking a big chance. Is there a test I can do to bypass the relay to see if that is the problem?
Thanks for the answer and the question.
I have changed the defroster clock and the repair shop who sold it told me that is 6 1/2 hours between defrost. the case is that this time is not the correct as it looks because between turning on the DEFROST cycle and then start up again the time in between is not sufficient that the freezer makes the right defrost. and the temperature stays around 32 F.
now if I make a bridge between socket no 1 and 2 the resistor will start and in 20 minutes the water will show up under the freezer and then I connect the timer again and the tep. will go down to 20 F.
I really have no Idea what is wrong any help. I am grateful and happy.
