20 Most Recent Kenmore 20.6 cu. ft. Upright Freezer 2809 Questions & Answers


Hi,

Best way I can answer this is to purchase the right equipment for the job. A domestic freezer is not designed to work like that, although it may get there in temp it won't hold it. Recovery is slower then the industrial unit you seek. Domestic unit warranties are void if used for commercial settings (i.e. lunch rooms, offices, lab's, etc...) I wish I had a better answer for you but if you need a specific temperature get the correct equipment for the job. Good Luck

No. Sounds like the intern temp sensor is bad, missing, or not connected. 92 is probably the max reading it can display. The unit will probably operate continuously, be much to cold, and cost a ton to operate. I assume you bought this from Sears. Call them to replace the freezer. Should be no problem.

An ice build up around the top of the door aperture isn't unusual due to some cold dense air from inside will spill out when the door is opened to be replaced with humid lighter outside air that will tend to remain at the top for a while.

Being frost free doesn't exclude it from this type of ice build up as only ice formed over the evaporator during a cooling cycle will be melted by the defrost heater.

Persistent localised ice build up could be a sign of failing insulation but this will be marked by a cold spot on the outside of the cabinet.

Freezer icemakers troubleshooting tips


Some Electrolux (parent company) freeezers like whirlpool and Kenmore use an optics emitter and receiver to detect when the ice bucket is full. if either device fails the icemaker quits functioning. review attached troubleshooting chart:

I would check the actual light fixture; They are not cheap to replace at about 75 dollars for the part, They can have bad connections at the board level or it could be the door switch.

It may be a sensor. Don't replace a control center unless you have determined it's bad. The sensor has to be wired to the board controller. Usually smaller cable with 2 conductors. If it has an alarm then there may g e as many as 6 or 8 or more wires going to the board. Using your wire diagram Find the sensor for temp. Sometimes the ohm value is given on the wire diagrams. You will also need the temperature at the point the sensor is connected inside. Your ohm reading should be close to the temp given in a table or from the manufacturer. If it's close sensor ok. Take next step.

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.

Never heard of an electric freezer with a 9v battery. What is freezer model #?

Kenmore Freezers | Answered on Nov 20, 2018


If freezer is only 32, it’s probably freon or compressor related problem and not the thermostat. Or possibly a defrost problem.
