Thank you for your inquiry on your Kenmore Chest Freezer, Model: 253.16082107. From reviewing the details on your model, Power outages can damage these electronic controls. If unplugging and reconnecting the freezer will not bring it back on, the control board will need to be replaced.

Safety Warning: Before beginning the repair, disconnect the direct power supply to the chest freezer to prevent the risk of injury or any electrical shock.

To clarify, the control board was not displaying for several months before the power went out. Then the power went out and there were a couple numbers flashing back and forth on the board during the power outage. But after the power came back on, the board did not display anything. It makes me believe that there is some power to the board since numbers appeared during the power outage. Why would the normal display not show up but something show on the board when the power is out? I feel very comfortable and confident replacing the part or checking the wiring harness but how does the board come off the freezer door? Do I peel off the top plastic piece to access any screws?

You should be able to replace the lid on the freezer. There really isn't much to it other than just take your time to make sure it's right. When you get ready to put the inner liner onto the door make sure you seal it up good with some silicone sealant to keep any moisture from getting into the freezer that way. The job in total should take about an hour to do.

Thank you for using Manage My Life!

Are there any install instructions for this part? It looks to be a bit more of a challenge since the lid is in 3 parts and a digital control box needs to be removed to replace the part.

Scott: In order to check if there are any written instructions or in order to see what is involved, I will need to know the model number of the freezer. It should not be hard to remove the inner door liner, door panel and control box. Reply with the model number for additional information.

Scott: There are no written step by step instructions for removing and replacing the outer door panel. If you do not feel confident in removing and replacing the outer door panel, I strongly recommend calling a service technician to replace it for you. The outer door panel should be an easy procedure to replace. Remove the screws securing the hinges to the outer door panel. You will need remove all the screws along the bottom perimeter of the inner door liner and lay the inner liner over the top of the freezer opening to help keep moisture and heat out. Look for any wire connections connected to the control and disconnect. It looks like after separating the inner liner from the outer panel you must remove the clip securing the lock. You must remove the lock before the control can come off. It appears the control panel overlay will have to come off to access the two fasteners securing the control to the top. I would suspect the wire harness will need to be disconnected in order to remove the control box. The overlay appears to have to come off to access the two fasteners and then the control box can be removed. The screws securing the hinges to the outer panel will need to come out. Try to leave the gasket attached on the inner door liner and leave the inner liner over the freezer opening. The wire harness appears to come through the back of the outer door panel so you will need to disconnect the control and wires and pull the harness out. Replacing the outer door panel could be challenge and again, if you get to the point where you need to have a service technician to replace the outer door panel, you can call 1-800-4-MY-HOME. I believe it you take your time and study how the parts are assembled and how it came apart; you can likely complete the repair.

Any hints on how to remove the wire harness from the back of the lid? I was able to disconnect all the wires from their locations. Looks like the wire harness is glued on. should there be ice under the insulation?

A:

Scott: There really should not be any ice between the outer and inner door panels unless there was a bad seal and condensation formed and then froze. The ice is likely preventing you from removing the harness. There could be could be some adhesive or sealant around the harness where it enters the back of the outer door panel. Remove the insulation under the lid to expose the harness opening and check for any sealant. You may need to let the ice though under the insulation before you can remove the insulation.
