SOURCE: Kenmore 23.1 cf Chest Freezer not cooling below 14F

Make sure everything is working, I.E. compressor, fans. Now I need to know if the freezer shuts off at 14 degrees, or does it continue to run without making temp. If it shuts off, then the first place to look is the thermostat. It may be out of calibration. If it continues to run, then the solution may be as simple as cleaning the condenser coil. or the defrost has malfunctioned somehow. Defrost probleams will cause excess ice on the inside coil. You may need to remove the panels to see how much ice is on it. It sounds like the compressor is good, as it is pretty cold. Just not cold enough. A deep freeze should be at least 0.

SOURCE: Chest freezer - hose adaptor?

That would depend on the size of the freezer. If it's a compact 5-7 cubic feet, then its not necessarily needed, but if it is a large freezer I would recommend buying the hose adapter. The basic function for the hose adapter is draining the water after defrosting the freezer.

So if it's a large freezer that will not be moved, then YES by all means, you need the adapter.

Orange light in front is flickering almost constantly. What might this mean? The food seems frozen -ice cream is fine as are breads and meats.


Hi,
It is normal for those lights ot flicker.. as long as the unit is working then do not worry about that...the light really is just showing you that you have power to the unit...

Where do i find the temperature control?


If your unit has a cold control it would most likely be on the side of the chest freezer near the front bottom. If you can find your complete model number from the tag on the freezer I could find out for you for sure.

Thanks

The front surface of the chest freezer is pretty hot.


the condenser lines are between the walls of the frzr and if it has a fan to cool the compressor down and it is stalled is the reason the walls are so hot and no it will not cool down over time if new is a flaw in making of this unit take it back or if older only the side should be getting warm not hot then if older be cautious of this no repair can be done on these type of unit they are between foam filled walls....

Kenmore chest freezer not working


Remove the panel covering the compressor. Remove the relay plugged on the side of the compressor and shake it. If it rattles or has any burned spots it is shorted out. Try replacing it first. Make sure you replace it with the correct replacement, not a fit-all. If this is not the problem you will need to replace the compressor. If it is less than 5 yrs old the compressor should still be in warranty. If so call Sears, it will be repaired free of charge. If it is out of warranty buy a new freezer.
