Question and Answers

Q:

my freezer doesnt seem to only get cold, does not freeze 25321421105 Kenmore Freezer

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com. I will be more than happy to assist you.  I can understand any frustration you may have experienced with regards to your unit. Let’s see what we can do for you.

From what it sounds like it could be an internal issue with the compressor. Could be that the Freon is breaking down, or maybe it’s not sealing properly, or it’s just not cycling fully. With this issue I would highly recommend having a technician to come out and check your high pressure system. 

Hope this information has helped you. If you are not comfortable doing this repair you can click here to schedule a technician or call toll free 1-800-469-4663. Again, thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com.

Q:

What is the capacity of this freezer? 25321421105 Kenmore Freezer

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
This model of Kenmore upright freezer offers 13.7 cu/ft of capacity. Do you know if the compressor on the unit is running? It could just need something simple like a start relay or capacitor if the compressor isn't running, or if it is, it may need a thermostat. Just an FYI.
Hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com.

Thanks, Josh. I don't know if the compressor is running. I found it pretty thawed yesterday, and thought the door had been left ajar (kids!), but it was still not frozen this morning. Fan runs, and when I dial the thermostat all the way down the fan cuts off. How would I check to see if the compressor is running? Thanks again for yoru response!

In order to check the compressor, you would want to pull the unit away from the wall and the compressor will be at the back-bottom of the unit. You may have to remove a cardboard cover back there to gain access to it. Simply put your hand on it and feel if it's vibrating and if it's warm. You can usually hear it when you get close too. 
If the compressor is cold and doesn't appear to be running, then I would suspect the controller or the run capacitor that plug into the compressor. However, it could also be a compressor related issue. Is the compressor fan at the back-bottom running or is it not working?
If the compressor is running, and the fan is running, it could indicate a temperature control (thermostat behind the knob) issue or a compressor related issue (internal).
Also, I wouldn't recommend putting the temperature to the lowest setting or rapidly change the settings for the temperature control. It's recommended to move the temperature dial one setting at a time and allow about 24 hours for the unit to cycle to the new temp setting. 
Hope this helps out and thanks for the response.

Having your freezer fail to operate properly can be a real headache. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I did some research on the unit. At this time, I was unable to locate information that would be helpful in regards to your question. Some of these questions that are asked will need specific research and will be answered by an expert with-in two business days but usually sooner.

Thank you for your question.  I am sorry you are having a problem with your Kenmore 253.21421105 Upright Freezer.  Hopefully by now things are working again.  Some possible things to check would be the fan in the freezer.  If the unit is cold but not cold enough the fan might be the problem.  A defrost problem would cause the unit to be cold but not cold enough.  Is there a frost build up on the rear wall of the freezer? 

If the unit stopped cooling at all then there may be a more serious compressor or sealed system problem.  The best way to check this is while the compressor is running feel the condenser coils on the back of the unit.  They should be hot to the touch.  If they are not hot to the touch then there is likely a sealed system problem.  The compressor should also be running.  It it runs a minute then clicks off then the overload may be the problem. 

I hope this helps.  You can also have the problem checked in your home by a Sears technician.  Here is the link: Sears Home Services Refrigerator Repair.

Fred, How can you tell if compressor running? It's hot to touch. I can hear the fan running from inside but just normal air (not cold or coo). Do you think that was a capacitor problem? How can you tell if the Freon leaking? Thanks.

A:

The compressor should be vibrating and be warm to the touch. Freon is odorless and a gauge would be need to check pressures. If the compressor is not running then it may be a capacitor problem but a technician with a starter box to check the compressor directly would be needed.
