Question about Kenmore 12.8 cu. ft. / 362 liter Chest Freezer 13312
Does not freeze anymore
The first thing you want to ensure is that power is actually getting into the unit. i suggest that you do that by plugging a night light into the outlet and verify the presence or power. If no power, check your breakers. If power is present note that A chest freezer has only two working parts; the start relay that help the compressor start and a compressor. If you are getting clicking sound, your start relay may be out (inexpensive if you can buy it and install it yourself) or a bad compressor. if you need to call a tech for the repair, you may be able to purchase a new chest freezer that now consume HALF the power and for less than cost of repair.

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.

My recommendation is to get rid of this 18 year old freezer as it is costing u a fortune to keep it plugged in. Then ask yourself if you really need an additional freezer at all?? If you do, consider purchasing a new small one that is really energy efficient. You will be way money ahead I assure u.

Try to plug somthing that you know it works ,in that outlet ,and if it doesn't work or goes on and off , the problem is in the outlet, but if works without trouble ,the problem could be in the freezer plug , the cord or the cord conections to the freezer.

Hello Cory Mitchell - If your freezer is not cooling, it could have a floating restriction in the lines or something more complicated like an issue with the seal system that only a professional can repair. This can conclude the compressor not working correctly, the evaporator fan not turning, or even coolant in the lines at incorrect levels to properly cool. If the compressor was running, humming or even a little warm then that was typically normal. Also try checking and see if the door seal is bad; place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and the door. Now close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing. If it proves to be ineffective, connect with a professional to accurately pinpoint any potentially more serious issues.
