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: Freezer won't run

There is no reset switch. There is a thermal overload protector mounted on the compressor. Does the compressor hum and then give a click sound. If so your compressor has failed. If the compressor is cold (Room Temperature) and it does not try to run your thermostat may be bad. If so remove the temperature control and jumper the two main wires that connect to the control. Unit should be unplugged to do this operation. Insulated the wires so they do not contact any metal surface. Plug the freezer back in. If it runs and cools replace the thermostat.

Is your circulating fan working?
It may be slowing down.
Sometimes they stick and need a shot of WD 40 and then work
it back and forth a little until it wants to take off again. Keep me informed

Hi James.

Most Kenmore upright freezers use a backup battery located at the lower part of the appliance. When the battery is low the freezer will beep continuously. If the unit has been off for a long time, and if the unit uses a battery, then the battery may need replacement.

Here a picture of the battery in its housing, located in the lower front part of the freezer.

Freezer alarm stuck on - can't reset


Hi: Does the freezer have a battery backup for the electronics? A 9v. battery in the grill down below. You won't have to remove the grill but pull a small rectangular panel to expose the battery. High end Kenmore freezers have a battery to back up the alarm. The six you see is actually supposed to be a "b" for battery most likely. L.E.D.'s are tough to tell the difference. Buy an new battery and all will be well. I hope this helps, Jeff

Low temp alarm goes off on Kenmore upright freezer


The alarm is there for a reason. I wouldn't disconnect it. Maybe the compressor is low on gas. If your thermostat is on extremely low, try moving it up to a less cold position. Look in your owner's manual for recommended settings.

Failing that, get ready to shell out some bucks to the service man!

Kenmore freezer depleting 9 volt batteries, setting off alarm


trojo50,
your defrost elements are not working or the water inlet for the evaporator tray is clogged. That alarm is to let you know something else has triggered it. This could be s imple DYI solution or require a service call. let me know if you are up for the DYI.

Flashing power light on Kenmore upright freezer


If the yellow light is flashing it may mean that the 9 volt battery is dead.

On my Kenmore there's a small battery compartment on the bottom right of the unit - under the door.

Kenmore Freezer Alarm


You can take the batteries out that power the alarm system. They are located through a small access panel/door front bottom right of the unit. If you bought the unit at Sears, you should call 1-800-4MYHOME and ask a technician if a replacement manual is available, or if they can direct you to a website for it.
