Question about Kenmore Freezer 20.3 cu. ft. Frost Free Upright Freezer

1 Answer

My Freezer is about 11 years old. There is moisture coming from underneath the freezer and it is not keeping things cold enough. The freezer has a "Quick Freeze" setting that seems to work, once that is turned off, it doesn't stay cold.

Usually if a refrigerator is holding water this means that the condensate from the freezer is not going down into the pan in the bottom, the water has to go somewhere so it ends up in your refrigerator. Find the drain line in the bottom and try some how to blow it out, if you can do this and clean the pan you should be ok.

We have a Amana BR18 Easy Reach bottom freezer. The fridge is turned up all the way, barely keeping food cold. The freezer is not freezing anything (ice, etc.). The freezer is still blowing cool air, but...


Low refrigerant assuming the compressor is always running and not being shut down by the thermostat.

You can hook up an ammeter to the unit to see if the current consumption is below spec, another sign of low gas situation since the motor is not working as hard as under normal conditions.

Admiral upright freezer dripping water inside on top


Hello.
I can help. Once we notice anything different from before we start becoming more aware of small variations. Regarding things on the top shelf warmer than on the bottom, this is always true because, "warm air rises and cold air falls". If you want the top shelf colder turn the thermostat to the next colder setting, always a good idea in the Summer season anyway.

Even though your gasket looks good, a ten year old gasket is not as pliable as a new one resulting in the moisture problem you describe. I would begin by applying a thin coating of vaseline to the gasket once a week for a month. This little trick of the trade will often work. If it doesn't improve the situation do replace the gasket.

WHIRLPOOL UNDER WORKTOP FREEZER APPROX 11 YEARS OLD BEEPING


the temperature control is bad. when you push the fast freeze it bypasses the thermostat for 12-24 hours depending on which model you have. I am not able to find any parts information with the model number provided but you should be able to find a temperature control at any local appliance parts house or online thru any reputable supplier.

Frezer does not seem to be working in the cold


s it should the ambient temperatures that you said are way to cold to expect the freezer to operate properly. move it indoors and or contact the manufacture and see if the have a kit to put on the unit to work properly.

My freezer is not cold enough to keep food frozen...


the "e" usually means it has an error. it could be a bad temperature thermistor or a bad control board. the most likely is the board.
i hope you are less then 1 year old as the board can be quite pricey, about 150 bucks.
you could try to unplug the unit for a few minutes and then plug back in and see if the code goes away and returns to the cooling mode.
