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.

Kenmore® (46-26072) Elite® 20.6-Cu. Ft. Frost-Free White Upright Freezer

Check these two things first.  1.  Is there a thick frost buildup on the back panel at the bottom half of the freezer?  2.  Do you hear the fan running inside the freezer?  Let me know what you find.
