There are three possible reasons;
\ the door seal is allowing warm air to sneak into the freezer, this usually causes lots of ice to build up
\The thermostat has worn out and is not responding to the temperature, you can check this with a thermometer it should be around -20 degrees celcius
\The freezer is slowly losing refrigerant and can not cool properly any more, some shelves are frozen while others are not

Loud knock when compressor kicks off. What do I need to look for???


Good day,
If the machine is running and cooling properly, then the problem is internal to the compressor. One or more of the centering springs has broken. No repair possible other than replacing the compressor.

Oddly, these machines have been known to run a long time before failing. However, like everything, not always.

Fridge and freezer not keeping things cold anymore, first it was the fezzer than yesterday it eads the fridge everything defrosting


Two possibilities either your sealed system has a leak and you are running out of freon, or your compressor relay is shutting the compressor off.  If it is the freon leaking your compressor will run constantly. If it is the relay you will hear a clicking sound and the compressor kicks on and off every couple of minutes.  If this is the case get a start capacitor from a parts store.  To tell which is start and run on your compressor get a meter.  The terminal standing on its own is common.  The one with less resistance is the run coil, and the other one is the start coil

Plugged in freezer after standing 3 days unplugged compressor ino


That sizzling noise i suspect is either the compressor overload or start capacitor burning out .
You need to look in connection box on side of compressor,the relay should just pull off once cover is off.BEWARE even with the freezer unplugged there is a charged capacitor connected inside this box and will give you a nasty shock should you touch it! with insulated pliers touch all terminals to each other and earth to make sure capacitor is discharged .You should be able to get astart capacitor and overload from local repair shop there not expensive if this doesn't fix it the compressor is possibly locked up and will need replacing

Model 106.53632300 couple of days ago smelled something (burned electrical type smell). Now both fridge and freezer not cooling. Cooling fan in back on bottom is running.


you may have a fried start or run cap and hopefully not a spendy board like everything runs on these days....bad caps(capacitors) will cause compressor not to start and run but arent needed for fans to kick on ....

Kenmore Freezer 20.3 cu.ft. won't kick on


Poor mom..:) You need a technician for that problem. But much better if you buy new one because your unit is already 14 yrs old the labor and parts are expensive. For this problem I think the compressor is already burned or stuck up.
