Thank you for choosing ManageMyLife.com and allowing us to help you. I can only imagine how frustrating this is.

In my research I see that this freezer is about 20 years old. The average life expectancy of a freezer is 11 years. I think replacing it will be more cost effective than replacing 20 year old parts at this time. Click here to see what a high efficient freezer actually cost these days. You will also be saving money every month on your energy bill. To answer your question, try setting your unit to quick freeze. If it will only work on the quick freeze and does not, when set on the regular temperature setting, the temperarture control, part # 216303600 has failed. This part cost $88.08 at SearsPartsDirect. If it stays off for awhile after the quick freeze cycle but eventually does come on, it may be OK. In the quick freeze cycle, the temperature will cool below zero degrees. It may take some time for the temperature to rise enough for the temperature control to cycle it back on. If it does not run at all and gets warm inside, unless the quick freeze feature is used, then the temperature control will need to be replaced. If the unit is low on refrigerant, it will ice up like this too.

If you have any follow-up questions, please continue our conversation on this existing thread.

SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others. Wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts.


Thanks again for choosing ManageMyLife.com

Thanks for the info. Quick Freeze will only get it to about 15-20 degrees. When I have it in normal mode it doesn't cool. So it does look like a thermostat issue. Another question though. Should the alarm go off when in Quick Freeze? I'm curious if I should have a load (bags if ice) in the freezer to help stabilize the temperature during the defrost cycle.

Your freezer does work better when it has a load of cold food. I do not see any harm having some bags of ice. I was on a three day get away weekend. Sorry I got back to you a lttle longer than usual. Give me an update if your are still having issues. Thanks!

A:

I can understand your concern. The information you have received from James is correct. If the freezer is on a hard floor, sometimes it helps to place a rug or soft mat under it. I hope this will help you. If you would like to have a technician check it, I'm listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services . Thank you for using Manage My Life.

I know it can be frustrating when the freezer is not working properly. The information you have received is good but this is a different type of problem. Based on the information listed, it indicates the thermostat # 216303600 has failed. Now, if it stays off for awhile after the quick freeze cycle but eventually does come on, it may be ok. In the quick freeze cycle, the temperature will cool below zero degrees. So, it can take awhile for the temperature to rise enough, for the thermostat to cycle it back on. If it does not run at all and gets warm inside, unless the quick freeze feature is used, then the thermostat will need to be replaced. It's available at SearsPartsDirect . I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, any additional details will be helpful and I will be glad to assist you further.

Q:

Can the freezer work OK without these 2 wires in the door?

A:

The 2 wires in the door, on this freezer are not necessary for the freezer to work. I think you are referring to the bottom hinge as the door pivot. This kit may require disassembly of the door. It depends on how much of the wire is available to work with. If disassembly is needed, it could take 30 minutes to an hour to repair it. If you need more assistance, please resubmit your question, with additional details.

Q:

What does the red light mean that is blinking and beeping on my freezer?

A:

The red light that is blinking and beeping is a signal indicator, that the temperature is too warm. If everything is running or seems to be, this will be a seal system or compressor related problem. The system could have a restriction or low charge. The compressor may not be pumping or it could be locked (stuck). A technician will be required to make these types of checks.
