Good morning.... I was only able to find one similar issue involving your model number. I've included it because the technician is usually very thorough in his explanations. In his example, the unit has not stopped working but will not maintain normal temps. Review this data and also keep in mind that an expert will respond to you within the next two business days. I hope this is helpful and have a nice day.

Thank you for submitting your question. If the compressor will not come on, you could be experiencing an issue with the controller regulator (216649308) or the compressor (5304475140) itself. You can test the compressor by checking the compressor's start and run windings with a ohms/volt meter. The run windings should be between 1-5 ohms and the start windings between 3-11 ohms. If the compressor windings check good, then the controller regulator needs to be replaced. You can order parts from our Sears Parts Direct web site. I hope this information helps. Please reply back to this thread if you require further assistance with this repair. If you do not feel comfortable performing test or repairing this problem yourself, I recommend scheduling for service. You can schedule for service online with our Sears Home Services team. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

Why won't my freezer maintain the proper temperature?

A:

If the freezer is in a garage or shed where the ambient temperature is rising above 110 degrees, then the compressor on this unit may get too hot and trip off on the overload. This can also happen if the freezer is in a confined space without adequate ventilation. This unit needs three inches of ventilation space around each side of the freezer. If the freezer is placed between other appliances, then it needs 7 inches of space between itself and the other appliances.

If the freezer is being used in a hot environment, you can install a compressor cooling fan kit in the compressor compartment. A technician would need to install this part. This would prevent the compressor from tripping off on overload and would allow the freezer to cool properly.

If the compressor has been operating for several years in high ambient temperatures, then it may be weak or damaged. Installing a compressor cooling fan kit would not help to correct this type of problem if you have a weak or damaged compressor.

Make sure that the freezer is defrosting properly. If the automatic defrost system is not working properly, then you may see frost or ice on the inside back wall of the freezer at the bottom where the evaporator is located. Frost can build up and prevent proper cooling due to diminished air flow across the evaporator. A failed defrost timer or a bad defrost heater could cause this type of problem.

A weak or failed evaporator fan could also cause a cooling problem. You could also have a low Freon refrigerant charge that would prevent proper cooling.

To determine the exact cause of your cooling problem, I recommend calling a service technician to examine the freezer.

If some of the above information helps you to determine the cause of your cooling problem and you need more help to fix it, resubmit your question with additional details.
