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

Kenmore freezer model 253.26072100

I have a Kenmore freezer that was running fine since we bought it. My little girl and her cousins were getting ice out of the thing and leaving the door open longer than necessary. It started alarming, though it was not the "door open" alarm. It started showing the "CE" alarm telling me that I needed to call a service tech. Being the fixit man that I am, I replaced both of the control boards at a cost of about $170.00. Now it's in alarm and not coming out. Is there a manual "Zero" for the temp or something? Can I reset it?

    I have the Kenmore 253.26072101 with the same problem and began with the door opening and alarm went off immediately. I've had two service men out and each told me I could probably fix it myself. But I've replaced the front controler panel, the highvoltage controller, and I'm waiting on a backordered thermistor. No one seems to have the thermistor in stock. I'm wondering if this is a widespread bug due to a defective thermistor. If it is not the thermistor, I don't know what it could be. The alarm will not clear. The temp is much colder in the box than temp readout indicates. I'm afraid it is never shutting off. I turn it off during the day for a few minutes several times a day to give the compressor a rest. Thermistor should ship around Oct 22th from Sears. Any other suggestions? (Besides calling the Sears Repairman)

    We have had the same exact problem. We called the service technician and we were told we had to replace the door. The total to repair our Sears Kenmore 1.50 year old upright elite will be $408.00. Claim it is a wire harnessing issue. Not covered by warranty!

What size water line do I run for my kenmore all freezer ice maker


If it's a new in-wall run to it, standard 1/2" is fine. From the wall to the freezer you can do 3/8" or 1/2"
An ice maker doesn't use a lot of water so you can consider it a low demand system. If you're connecting from wall to freezer most hardware stores have premade hoses; just like the water hoses for a washer or a toilet.

Water freezing in tube to icemaker


Change the water control valve because it is not shutting off once the ice maker is full. The valve is sticking open slightly once power is off to water valve. What is the model number of your Kenmore Elite Model numbers for Kenmore most times look like this example=> 321.456789 Sea Breeze

Kenmore Freezer Model 253.26732104 Compressor


the defrost timer may need reseting. when the defrost is on, it cuts power to the compressor so they don't run at the same time. it's usually behind the bottom front grate on the right side. also check the main circuit board. there's a fuse on it.

Sears Coldspot 17 frostless freezer not defrosting


One reason for the fan running is that it is trying to distribute the air in the compartment. Look at the very rear of the freezer on the bottom and see if the little vents, which allow water to disperse, are not filled with frozen ice. If so, turn off the fridge (unplug it) and use a hair dryer to melt that ice until it is all gone. That will probably fill the condensation pan under the unit and you'll need to empty it.

Loud shreaking sound coming from Kenmore Frost Freezer.


The fan behind the molding is hitting some ice build up and causing the sound. Sounds like the timer for the defrost isn't working. Try to turn off the unit for few hours or take off the molding in the freezer compartment and remove the ice build up with hair dryer.

Ice build up in my frost free upright freezer


I looked at the BACK at the bottom underneath of my Sears Kenmore frost free upright freezer and what was causing the ice buildup was very simple. At the factory, the assembler looped the little hose too high and when the water went into the hose it could not get out due to being too high in one spot! An ice dam will form, blocking ALL water coming through
and freezing up any more water coming down giving you a HUGE wad of ice that is scary!!! I just removed the screw holding the loop that holds the hose and put a bit of warm water down the little hole on the INSIDE (Behind the grate) to melt the remaining ice in the tube.You need to take out 4 screws and remove the grate to see this. I could not believe that this was the problem! I haven't had any ice build up since.Now don't tear your freezer apart before you try this trying to fix the compressor, thermostat etc. It may be the only thing wrong with it!
