Question about Kenmore 20.6 cu. ft. Upright Freezer 24092
Hi! we just bought a 4 yr old kenmore 20.6 ft upright frost-free freezer. it ran at the woman's house, but after moving it home only the fan blows. my husband hit the sompressor with a hammer and it started up and ran for a few seconds, then stopped again. we're so depressed, not a lot of $ and now we buy a broken freezer and $100 worth of meat is in our fridge ticking time away till it spoils..please help!!
We had a Kenmore upright which worked fine but then suddenly was not keeping food frozen. Long story short, do not store anything on top of the freezer unit. It will insulate the coils that run across the top of the unit, and cause your compressor to work harder than it needs to, and eventually overheat and become ineffective. Says nothing about it in the user manual. We learned the hard way by losing food.

If the compressor feels hot then it is probably at fault. If the compressor is cold then it may be a control or relay fault. Either way a fridge engineer should quickly id which one it is. It doesnt sound the best of scenarios. Hope this is of some help. Good Luck.
