Thank you for your questions about the indicator lights on your upright freezer Sara. I will be happy to explain their functions. Part number 5308002706, the indicator light on the left should be yellow (amber) and will come on when the freezer is plugged into a power source. (Even if the thermostat is in the off position.) This indicator verifies that there is power to the freezer.

The right indicator light (red), part number was originally 08016772, replaced by 5308002706, is the unsafe temperature indicator. When you first plug in the freezer it will blink until the freezer reaches a safe freezing temperature. If a malfunction occurs, and the temperture falls to an unsafe level, the red light will blink and a buzzer will sound.

Part number 216823300, the rocker switch is the temperature alarm switch. When the freezer is shipped from the factory it will arrive with the switch in the off position. Once your freezer has cooled to a safe level, you can activate the switch. Then if you do have a malfunction the buzzer will sound to let you know and the red light will blink. The rocker switch is to turn alarm on and off. This is covered in more detail in your owner's manual. In case you do not have the manual, I have included the link for you to view it on line. The indicators are discussed on page 7.

Owner's manual for Kenmore upright freezer 25324082101.

It is important on your refrigerator and your freezer that you keep the condenser coils clean. On this freezer they are the coils on the back. The manufacturer recommends you brush them out with a bristle brush at least once ever 6 months. I have included the link for the coil brush in case you don't have one yet. Be sure not to use a vacuum directly on the coils as that can damage them.

If there is anything else I can assist you with Sara, please respond to this thread and I will be happy to help. Thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business.

Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about the freezer not getting cold enough. Since it is getting cold, it means the compressor is running. If there is no frost accumulation on the back wall and the fan motor is running, this will lead to a sealed system problem. A technician will be required to make this type of check. I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

Thank you for your question. To remove the shelves, push them all the way to the right until the pegs on the left side are free and then tilt the shelf down or up, until it's free on the right side. I hope this will help you.

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your freezer. If the red light is blinking and the audible alarm is chirping once every 4 seconds then this is indicating that the interior temperature is too warm inside the freezer. This is consistent with your detail that the compressor is not running. The first image below shows the information about the display and the alarms on this type of freezer.

Check the electrical outlet for the freezer to make sure that it is working properly. If not, check the house circuit breaker for that outlet. Try plugging the freezer into a different outlet.

If the outlet is okay and the freezer has electrical power provided to it, you could have a problem with the cold control thermostat or the defrost timer. You could also have a bad start relay on that compressor or the compressor could be locked up. If the compressor or the sealed system needs to be repaired, it would probably be more economical to replace the freezer rather than repair it.

I provided a wiring diagram for the freezer in the second image below. Tap that cold control thermostat on the back inside wall of the freezer to see if the compressor will start. Try adjusting that cold control to a colder setting to see if the compressor will start. A technician would unplug the freezer and check that cold control for continuity using a volt/ohm meter. If you have a meter, you can check that component in the same manner. If the cold control thermostat is okay, I recommend that you try advancing the defrost timer manually to see if the compressor will start. That defrost timer is on the back bottom portion of the freezer (see KEY 23 in the third image). If you advance that timer manually and the compressor starts, then that defrost timer will need to be replaced. You can order parts from the Sears Parts Direct .

If the cold control and the defrost timer are both okay, then you could have a bad start relay (KEY 30 also called CONTROLLER) and/or a failed capacitor (KEY 55). You can try replacing those components if you want to fix this freezer yourself. Be sure that you unplug the freezer before accessing internal components.

These tips may help you fix the freezer. If it needs to be serviced, you can schedule an appointment through this website: Sears Home Services . I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Thank you for submitting your question. The freezer alarm should only go off if the interior temperature is too warm. I believe the issue you're experiencing is with your alarm sensor being stuck and needs to be replaced. The alarm sensor is part number 5308037992 priced at $59.04. You can order the alarm sensor from our Sears Parts Direct web site. I hope this information helps. Please reply back to this thread if you require further assistance. Thank you for choosing Manage My Life.

Q:

I own a Kenmore frost-free freezer (mod. 253.24082.101) which is emitting a buzzing noise. Compressor is working, but I had to turn off the switch under door.

A:

From the description listed, it sounds like you are referring to the temperature alarm switch. The compressor and this switch are not related. It won't effect the cooling or the defrost system. This switch simply activates the alarm feature or deactivates it. When deactivated, only the temperature light will work. It's very strange for this switch to make a noise but if it is, then it should be replaced. The switch # 216823300 is available at SearsPartsDirect . If you need more assistance, please resubmit your question, with additional details.

Scott, I have the exact same freezer with the exact same problem with the buzzer going off, only my freezer doesn't cool anymore. The freezer sounds fine, with the humming of the motor, but I think it ran out of Freon? Can I recharge it or do I need a new compressor? Thank you, Jim

Q:

How is the alarm system supposed to work on this freezer?

A:

When the temperature reaches an unsafe level the temperature alarm will sound. On some models the alarm will sound constantly. Owner's manuals will cover a few models and not all of them will work the same. However, most of the indicator lights will flash. Usually the temperature alarm is activated when the temperature gets up to approximately 15 degrees and stays in this mode until the temperature goes back down to approximately 7 degrees. To check the temperature, place a thermometer between some packages, air temperature is not a good check. If the temperature is below 7 and the alarm is still on and sounding, the sensor assembly # 5308037992 will need to be replaced. If you need more assistance, you can resubmit your question with more details.
