Not cold enough?

Hi. I bought a used Kenmore freezer upright model 253.9280412 and after plugging it in and running it for 5-6 hours, it reached about 10 degrees and seemed to be stuck here. At a temp setting of 1 it just ran and ran and never got below 10 deg. As I backed the temp control down toward OFF, it finally cycled off. Shortly there after it came on again and continued to cycle at around 12-14 degrees. It would run for 4 minutes and off for 4 minutes. It did eventually go into defrost for about a 1/2 hour then came back on and ran unitl back to 12 deg. The freezer was empty with no food cause I want

Suggested Questions And Answer :


Freezer dying I have a frigidaire upright that is only, maybe, 3 years old. All of a sudden it is not getting cold enough. A ton of my stuff is totally defrosted, but everything is still cool. It's cold enough that my meats haven't defrosted yet, but all my vegies, jellies, jams, etc have. Charity Vickers [email protected]


IS THE FREEZER AN AUTO DEFROST FREEZER? IF SO, IS THERE FROST BUILT UP ON THE BACK WALL? IF FROST APPEARS ON THE BACK WALL, THERE IS A DEFROST FAILURE. THERE ARE THREE ITEMS IN THE DEFROST CIRCUIT. THE TIMER, HEATER, AND BI-METAL. THE TIMER IS USUALLY LOCATED ON THE BACK OF THE FREEZER DOWN NEAR THE COMPRESSOR IN THE CORNER. IT HAS FOUR WIRES ATTACHED TO IT. YOU CAN ADVANCE THE TIMER BY TURNING THE KNOB ON THE FACE OF THE TIMER. WHEN IT CLICKS LOUD AND STOPS THE COMPRESSOR RUNNING, IT IS IN THE DEFROST CYCLE. WAIT 5 MNUTES AND CHECK INSIDE THE FREEZER TO SEE IF THE HEATER COMES ON. YOU MAY BE ABLE TO HEAR THE FROST MELTING AND DROPPING ON THE HEATER. IT WILL SIZZLE AND POP. ALSO, LOOK FOR A GLOWING DOWN AT THE BOTTOM OF THE BACK PANEL. IF THE HEATER IS ON, THE TIMER IS BAD. IF NOT, CHECK THE HEATER AND BI-METAL. IF THE COMPRESSOR IS NOT RUNNING, CHECK THE COLD CONTROL TO SEE IF IT IS GOOD. IF THE COLD CONTROL IS O.K., THE START DEVICE ON THE COMPRESSOR MAY BE BAD. DOES THE COMPRESSOR HUM FOR A MINUTE AND THEN CLICK AND SHUT OFF. IT CAN BE EITHER THE START DEVICE (RELAY) OR THE COMPRESSOR IS BAD.

White Westinghouse upright freezer not cold enough.


Coils are probably underneath. remove the grille at the front (usually you just rotate it down to pull off) and then vaccum inside with a wand. If there aren't any coils there either, pull the machine out from the wall, and remove the lower panel from the back side. Inside you should find a fan next to a coil. Make sure that fan is working, and if it isn't make sure it is getting power. Vacuum out as good as you can, and if you can use compressed air to blow it clean, even better (vacuum first because it will kick out a lot of dust).If vacuuming the coils doesn't work, then you probably have a freon leakage problem, in which case it is probably not worth the cost of repair.

Upright self def. freezer not getting cold


Is your compressor running? Try this: place your hand on top the compressor, quickly-in case it's hot-it should be vibrating and cool/warm to the touch. If it's not running then the cheapest/fastest test is to try a 3in1 start kit from a local appliance shop. The 3 in 1 start should be around $14 to $20 to wire up. It's extremely simple to wire up, just ask the clerk at the appliance shop's parts counter and they will explain it. I hope this helps you out!!! :)

Need help w/the coldness of our upright


It sounds like a freon leak. This can happen when moving it. I don't recomment fixing it. You can get it charged again and it will work for a while. This will cost you about $75 - $100. You can't do this yourself as you have to be certified to buy freon. The reason I don't recomment fixing it is because when it goes out again you will lose all food. Since it is a freezer you probably don't open it every day and you might not notice that anything is wrong. Try to lay a guilt trip on the seller and see if they will take it back.

Ok we have a kenmore upright freezer Model # 253.26062103. We got it brand new about 3-4 years ago. It was working fine til about 2 weeks ago when the ice cream became soft and high temp alarm started going off..everything else stayed frozen. my husband checked and there was frost build up on the back wall which we decided to take evrything out of the freezer and self defrost it because we thought since the outside temp was unusually high maybe the freezer wasnt able to defrost properly. We did this and plugged it back in a few days later. We put a thermometer inside the freezer and it is only reading 20 degrees F or -5 celcius. Still not cold enough. We then replaced the electronic control panel which also houses the defrost timer and that did not help raise the temp. Alarm still going off when switched is turned on. We then decided to have a repair service out...they said it was the defrost heater, timer and thermostat, we said we already replaced the timer, so we bought the other 2 parts and replaced them. well it is still not cooling properly and we have no idea what to check next...This is costing us a ridiculous amount of money and we can't get a solution...Any help would be appreciated.


I had the same problem and it turned out to be the sensor, a $15 part. it pretty much controls everything related to defrosting.
