Default Kenmore Upright Freezer issues
Model Number: 253.9264212   Brand: Kenmore   Age: 5 - 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I hava a Kenmore upright freezer thats flaking out after being unplugged for sa period of time. When I replugged it up after a couple of hours I went down and checked on it and it was already below freezing at 5 degrees and still cooling. Went down and check on it again a little later on and it was -3.5 inside and still running. The dial was set at 5 out of 6.

Next morning I went back down to check on it and it was 59 degrees and the fan was running but no longer cooling. I tried to turn the dial back up to 6 and check on it again later but it would no longer cool. I unplugged it for a couple of hours and then plugged it back up. Same results, it cooled to below zero within a couple of hours but by the next morning it was just about 60 degrees again.

Any ideas?

Jimmy

Hi.

You need to check two thing for me, please.

First - if the compressor is running and not clicking.
Second - open the evaporator cover and check what is the frost pattern on the coils.Covered evenly, partially,blocked with snow,ice in one corner?

Post the results.

Simon.

I think I've traced it back to the defrost timer. I tested the Defrost T-Stat and that passed and the next test was the timer and that failed. No reading at all from Common to any of the other posts. Before testing though, when I did take the back off there was frost in the front left corner of the coil but no frost throughout the rest of the coil but that was when I was getting the 60 degree reading.

Hi.

You may have the sealed system problem, the partial restriction in particular.
Repair of that kind of the problem will need a pro.

If the evaporator coils are not covered with frost - it's not the defrost system failure.

My only question about the restriction is why would it work for 6-8 hours before it stopped working?

The particles or the moisture are flowing inside the sealed system.Sometimes it takes awhile to clog the capillary tube.

Ahhh, well it sounds like I wasted $10 on a Defrost timer. I'll most likely have to scrap it as its most likely going to cost more to repair then to buy a newer one.

Thanks for your help.
