Compressor on Kenmore freezer tries to start but overload kicks
Do you Hear anything when you ON the Freezer like Clicking Noise or Humming Noise. If NO, follow the Below steps :-
Check to see if the thermostat has continuity when turned to the coldest setting, if that is okay then you will want to disconnect the wires going to the compressor and see if you get 120 volts there after is plugged in, if you get that I would replace the overload / relay on the compressor and see if that gets it to work, if that does not work your compressor is shot and not worth fixing.
Hope i helped you.

Need -20 degrees Celsius...Will this brand get there?
If all is ideal maybe -10 an occationally -15 and this is F considerable coolder than -20C. ALSO fyi a chest freezer will stay at or below these temps better than an upright and especially a self defrosting model. Because a chest freezer you dont loose all the cold air when you open the door. TYhey are not made in auto matic defrost as far as I know (never have seen one but then I havent been looking for one either. An up right freezer can be manual defrost or automatic. but the cold air falls ouit every time the door is opened.
Please let em know if this helps you by giving me as high a mark as you can and thank you for using fixya.

I have a Kenmore upright freezer that keeps saying "Power loss and Door Ajar''
Does it have a high temperature alarm? I have an older Kenmore with this that requires a 9 volt backup battery to activate the alarm if the power goes off. If the battery goes dead over time, the alarm won't shut off even with the power on. My battery is behind a small door on the left side end of the plastic floor dress plate on the bottom front of the freezer. I use a 9 volt lithium battery myself. I have a backup generator so it doesn't have a lot of time to run on the battery. Where an alkaline battery lasts me about 18 months, This lithium battery has been in for 3 years and shows no sign of failing yet. They have a shelf life of 15 years or more all though they won't last that long in this application. It's worth not coming home and not finding the dogs going wild due to the high pitched beep. Good luck.
