If you don't hear it running for extended periods of time (more than 15 minutes) without stopping, and if it does not immediately re-start once it does stop, and if it is extremely hot climate outside (85 F and above), then yes, this is acceptable.

My Kenmore 9 upright freezer feels warm on the outside, what could be the cause. I have defrosted and cleaned it already and seems to work fine. however i am concerned with the outside temperature. Please...

Hi,

This is normal. The condenser coils on freezers are typically located in the walls.

The refrigerator in your kitchen has condenser coils that are hot either under the frig or on the back. Freezers do not need as much heat transfer on the coils with the air so they put them in the walls, it is called a warm wall condenser. It may even feel hot to the touch if you happen to feel it near the end of a cooling cycle. It will be the warmest close to the compressor and cool off at it makes it around the cabinet down to the other side.

If unit is running then it is not worth fixing. I cannot see your repyl due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

Not Freezing

Check the door seal all the way around. We purchased one recently that was slightly dented (not noticeably and the seal was not tight.) You need to get in touch with whomever you purchased it from immediately so that it can be repaired or replaced.

Drain iced up in freezer

the draining pipe is block with something, you can melt the ice with a hear drier or hot water, then put a wire true the pipe and after that, test the pipe again.

Leakage and warm sides

The outsides should will be warm.  This is normal because the condensor lines run thru the cabinet from about half way up the sides and over the top.  Which is why the you shouldn't have anything stacked on top of the freezer and enough room on the sides of it for air flow.  As far as the water leak, tell me exactly where you see the water and does the bottom of the freezer (inside) have a sheet of ice on it.  If there is ice there then the drain behind the bottom panel in the freezer is frozen over and will have to be thawed out.  Let me know what you find.  If you have further questions I may need the entire model # on the sticker inside the freezer.
