Need Kenmore Freezer Advice
Model Number: 253.28262805 Brand: Kenmore Age: 1 - 5 years
I have a 3 year old Kenmore upright 12.1 cu. ft. freezer in my garage. Model # 253.28262805
Recently I noticed it seemed to be "short cycling" between run and off. It would come on for maybe 3 to 10 seconds and shut off. Then, within a minute or two it would repeat the short cycling... Sometimes much sooner.
In the past it seemed to simply come on......run a good while (at least several minutes or more) then shut off for a good while (at least several minutes or more).
It freezes just fine, normally holding between 7F and 10F inside temp even at the first setting of the internal thermostat switch.
I became concerned this on/off short cycling might burn my compressor out or drastically shorten its life...
SO, I did some internet research and the finger seemed to point to either the start device/controller unit or the run capacitor. I simply replaced both with a brand new 216985001/297286803 run capacitor and a new 216954214 controller.
However, it seems to have changed little as to on/off cycling or run time.
Could this be normal, the short run time? Could the temperature switch/controller be bad?
What else should I check/look into?
TIA, Randy "C-17A"
