### What does CE mean on an old Kenmore upright freezer

CE probably means a Communication Error between the high and low voltage boards of the freezer. First check if your freezer uses a 9V backup battery and replace that with a new one. Next check the wiring for corrosion or damage. Check where the wires connect to the boards and inside the door. (Note: the high voltage board controls the compressor.) You may want to check that the freezer is holding the correct temperature with a refrigerator/freezer thermometer. Please add a comment with the model number of the freezer (including the three digit prefix) if you'd like me to check for a parts diagram and parts list. I hope this helps. Cindy Wells

### How many cubic feet is my Kenmore freezer model #253.26422100, and how do you determine this?

You could try measuring the inside and doing the math. Measuring in Inches, measure front to back, (Depth). Then side to side,(Width). Then top to bottom, (Height). Multiply these together, Depth x Width x Height. This will give you the volume in cubic inches. Divide the number you get in inches by 1728. This will give the volume in cubic feet.

### How do I disconnect the temperature alarm to my Kenmore freezer model number ************0

a number that long looks like a serial number rather than the Model Number. I doubt the temperature alarm can be disconnected. You _may_ be able to remove the sounder, but don't forget, it is provided for your safety and stop all your food spoiling unannounced. If the alarm keeps going of, it is for a reason and needs fixing.

### Kenmore Upright FrostFree Freezer 26072. Get ice on inside top of door near gasket that goes around). Ice forms on the inside top edge of the unit, where the door problem touches. How to repair?

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.

### Hi, I have a Kenmore Elite upright freezer and the interior cabinet lights flash like strobe lights. Trying to figure out what is causing this. The model number is 25344753110

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.

### How to fix a Kenmore chest freezer model #255.19502010

Kenmore model 255.19502010 seems to have this problem where it will not get cold anymore, but it is a \$12 solution and and easy wiring job. Easy like if you know colors and how to plug things in you should be able to do it. Get a Supco 3 n'1 Start (model RCO410) for a 1/4-1/3 hp compressor on ebay or Amazon. This one device replaces 3 different components (relay, overload and start capacitor) that all have a tendency to fail. When it arrives, make sure the frezer is unplugged, remove the metal panel on the side of the freezer. You will see a large black orb almost the size of a football, that is the compressor. On the left side there is a black plastic box that covers the connections on the side of the compressor. Open that up and you will find another black plastic thing plugged into the compressor that has a bunck of wires plugged into it. Pull it loose of the compressor by pulling straight back or gently prying it away with a flat screwdriver. You will see that it is plugged into 3 metal prongs that stick out of the compressor. You will see that all the wires go back to a Cylinder shaped device about 1.5 inch diameter and about 5 inches high it is secured to the bottom rail with a single bolt. Remove the black cylinder and all other pieces that were plugged into the compressor. You should be left with a white and black wire coming from the dial selector on the front. Follow the directions on the package of the SupcoBy connecting the white wire to the lower left prong on the compressor, the Black wire to the top center prong and the red wire to the bottom right prong. Connect the other 2 black wires to the black and white wire coming from the dial with the enclosed wire nuts. Put the new 3 in 1 next to the compressor andplug in your freezer to test. If it gets cold then unplug it and secure the new 3 n1 with a ziptie, duct tape' screw' or some other way (do NOT screw into the 3 n 1 just through the hole in the top.)If this does not fix your freezer then put it on craigslist for a fermentation chamber for home-brewers and home wine makers because your compressor is probably shot.One note: while I was repairing mine I took the dial thermostat out and int eh process unplugged one of the connection. The first time I plugged in my freezer it did not turn on but the green light was on. If this happens to you inspect all the connections and make sure they are on tight.
