I'm sorry you are having this problem with your freezer. The red light and buzzer is the temperature alarm. It's indicating the temperature in the freezer is too high. First, check the back wall to see if there is an accumulation of frost building up. If this is happening, it indicates a problem with the defrost system. In this case, you can remove the food and place it in some coolers or another freezer if you have one. Turn this freezer off for several hours and leave the door open. When all the frost is gone, it will cool ok again for a few days, until the frost starts building back up. This will give you a chance to have it checked.

If there is no frost accumulating on the wall, then it will need to be determined if the compressor is running. If the compressor is running but not cooling, it will lead to a sealed system problem. A technician will be required to make this type of check and repair. 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, any additional details will be helpful and I will be glad to assist you further.

Stephen, If the compressor is not running and you want to check the volts to the electronics control, that would be the next step. You wound need to check the power into the electronics control and the power out of the electronics control to the compressor. The diagnosis of this issue will require the use of a volt/ohm meter. If you have a meter and are confident in your technical abilities please reply below and I will be happy to assist you further.

Bill, Im getting 120v to control panel and no voltage to fan, from control panel. If I replace the control panel, will this make my compressor work again or can you tell me how to check the compressor with my volt/ohm meter?

A:

Stephen, if you want to do a quick check and test the compressor under load, unplug the freezer from the electric wall outlet first. Make a good jumper to go from the black at the control board to the yellow at the control board. Make sure no bare wires are touching and reconnect to the wall outlet. The compressor will come on right away and stay on long as the power cord is plugged in. The ohms reading red to white should be 3-10 ohms when the compressor is not running. Usually the technicians have a test cord to run the above test. If the compressor runs it will be the control board.

It turned out to be the control panel. When I replaced it the fan and the compressor came back on and it is starting to cool again. Both outsides of the freezer are really HOT to the touch. Is this normal, or is this something that could have been hit by lighting and caused the control panel to go out originally?

A:

Yes Is the condenser fan running? It sounds like the tube that runs around the cabinet to help with the sweating is too hot, caused by a faulty condenser fan motor. This is the motor in the compressor compartment.

A:

Thank you for your question. Yes it is concerning when the alarms are going off. The red alarm is the temp alarm and it is on because the compressor is not coming on. The unit should turn on the compressor when it is warm, like it is now.
NOTE: You should only check that live outlet voltage if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely measure it. Wear proper safety equipment (electrical safety gloves and safety goggles) when checking that live outlet voltage.
To check the control board, use a volts/ohm meter and check the black wire to the white wire. There should be 120 volts AC there. Next check the yellow to the white wire. For the compressor to be on there should be 120 volts AC on the yellow if not replace the control board. Here is the link. Kenmore Freezer control board for model 253.26062100 .

Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about this frosting condition. This frosting indicates a problem with the defrost system. A good check that may help determine the problem, will be to, manually place this unit into a defrost cycle. To enter manual defrost, the control must be set to �2� and then both buttons must be held down for a couple of seconds. A �D� is displayed while in manual defrost. After a few minutes, if you can hear a hissing or popping sound inside the freezer, it means the heating element is on. This would indicate the control board # 297282800 is not advancing into defrost and will need to be replaced. Upon completion of the defrost cycle, the setting will return to setting # 2 and you must change the control back to the original setting. If the heating element does not come on, some voltage and resistance checks will need to be made. A technician may be needed to make these checks. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .
