SOURCE: Kenmore 23.1 cf Chest Freezer not cooling below 14F

Make sure everything is working, I.E. compressor, fans. Now I need to know if the freezer shuts off at 14 degrees, or does it continue to run without making temp. If it shuts off, then the first place to look is the thermostat. It may be out of calibration. If it continues to run, then the solution may be as simple as cleaning the condenser coil. or the defrost has malfunctioned somehow. Defrost probleams will cause excess ice on the inside coil. You may need to remove the panels to see how much ice is on it. It sounds like the compressor is good, as it is pretty cold. Just not cold enough. A deep freeze should be at least 0.

SOURCE: Chest freezer - hose adaptor?

That would depend on the size of the freezer. If it's a compact 5-7 cubic feet, then its not necessarily needed, but if it is a large freezer I would recommend buying the hose adapter. The basic function for the hose adapter is draining the water after defrosting the freezer.

So if it's a large freezer that will not be moved, then YES by all means, you need the adapter.

SOURCE: Used chest freezer not cooling

Slobberlips,

One of two situations has occured with your used freezer:

1: The unit freon needs to be recharged, this happens when you develope a leak in the freon coils, or the unit is old enough that the freon has reached it's usable potential.

2: The compressor may seem to run fine, but in fact, has an internal problem.

My suggestion, return the unit if you can, and walk the isles of your local Menards, Sears, or any other local vendor in your area, and see how much prices have declined for the chest freezer.

The initial investment for a new freezer will offset any problems you might have with any other used unit, and the warranty is always a plus if you do have problems with the new unit.

Hope this helps you out.

I have a Kenmore 5 cu ft freezer that won't come on. I've checked the plug in and it works fine. Where would I start looking for the problem????


If, by plug in you mean the socket, then you need to check the fuse in the power plug next.
At the very lease there should be some light on the unit that illuminate even if it does not FREEZE.
If the compressor comes on wait to see if there is any drop in temperature. then it is possible the fuse was faulty.

see below links for more information on possible causes
