20 Most Recent Kenmore 13.7 cu. ft. / 388 liter Upright Freezer 23429 Questions & Answers

Hello Wayne,
You already mentioned the reason for the excess water. When the freezer automatically defrosts itself once every 24 hours the melted water drains down through a tube down to a water pan at the bottom of the refrigerator where it sits and supposedly evaporated by the fan back into the atmosphere. However in your case the excessive dust is preventing the evaporation phase to occur by the fan. You need to vacuum as much of the dust as possible and your problem will disappear.
Good Luck

if there is air getting into the freezer because the door is not sealing properly the unit will run because it is sensing it is not cold enough inside. your unit releses the heat from the refrigerant through copper tubing that runs through the cabinet, and thats why it is hot. you need to level the unit make sure the door is sealing on the top bottom and both sides ansd then the freezer will work properly and be able to shut off after it has come down to the proper temp.

Cut back and rejoin the wires and run it to see! Failing that get a new universal solid state relay kit from Supco

The term use here is the same as saying Recharging the sealed system with Freon. The compressor is the heart of that system. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Leave it plugged in. It won't over freeze. If the outside air is cold then it won't need to run as much to bring down the temp-nature is doing that. So when the weather gets warm it will run to keep everything frozen. Hope this helps. Google burdfrenzy

You can do the first aids which migh help until the techician check it out.
1. Check you have too much ice. If yes you should try to melt the ice fast so your good will not spoiled. You can ither use a hair dryer to meld if fast or warm water and remove any part of ice that can be taken out by hands.
2. Second you can clean the condenser which is on the back of you refriigerator from any dust with a brush and or blower or a vacum cleaner. this must be done once a year for better performance.
Their also some posibilities for your problem but all need special knowladje and skills and licence for dealing with freon gas.
So if you are lucky and is not something very serius the above tips can help and sometimes can solve your problem.
Good luck.

you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model

Hi, first check your coils on the back and make sure they are clean, then check the cover on the front bottom and make sure it is clean. If it is all clean and still running warm then it may need to be recharged with freon. At that point you should contact a heating/cooling technician to come out and recharge your system. They are the only ones licenced to handle the freon to recharge your cooling system on the fridge.

There is normally a small filiament of metal which is attached to the defrost element and conducts heat down the drainpipe preventing ice build up. You can pour some boiling water onto this area and even wriggle a piece of plastic tubing down the drain pipe to dislodge any blockage. For future prevention, you can attach a piece of copper wire around the defrost element (in the absence of the original filiament) and extend it down the drainpiple
