Question about Kenmore 20.3 cu. ft. / 575 liter Upright Freezer 23024

Open Question

I have a Kenmore Upright Freezer Model 253.9280414. It has been in my garage for the last 3-4 years unplugged. I plugged it in to see if it works so that I can sell it. Everything seemed to work for an hour or so (cool air was blowing and the temp was starting to drop). Then it just stopped running and the temp alarm went off. Adjusting the temp does nothing. Light, alarm button & quick freeze buttons seems to work bot the freezer does not turn back on. I tried unplugging and letting it sit for awhile but that did not help. Is it worth fixing to sell or just give away?

SOURCE: Freezer compressor runs steady & getting -30F

You probably have a defective thermostat or sensor for reading the temperature.

is it possible the door has not been closed at some point?
If so they can build up with ice in the evaporator which the defrost system cannot handle....Try a manual defrost.
Depending on where the unit is installed high ambient temperature can drop the internal temp enough to set the alarm off though they will still freeze sufficiently

SOURCE: won't freeze

Is the compressor running the whole time? If so may have a problem with a refridgerant leak....check the compressor in the rear of unit, feel if its hot....may be as simple as a relay.

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.

FREEZER ALARM WILL NOT SHUT OFF


You can try 2 things. Unplug it for about 2-3 minutes and then replug it. It should reset itself. You can silence the alarm or muffle it. Silencing it should be hard. Disconnect it from its source. You may want to find out why it is alarming constantly. Have you called Sears and asked them?

The most likely answer is a slow freon leak assuming it was getting to the right temperature before you went on vacation.

Freezer Problem


If it started to cool again the compressor was running. Check the condenser and make sure it is clean. Provide as much air movement through the garage as possible . 100 degrees is a high temperature to be operating a refrigerator in.
