Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com. I'm sorry to hear about the undervoltage issue you have experienced, I know how frustrating that can be, especially when it causes damage.

It sounds like the voltage issue may have damaged the combination relay that mounts to the compressor on the unit. If the compressor doesn't want to start, which sounds like the case, this would be the part to check on and replace.

I have included a link to our PartsDirect page where you can purchase the part needed to complete the repair. Just click on the blue link below to be directed to the site.

Any instructions available for replacing this relay in terms of 'watch outs'? I'm just wondering if once the unit is pulled out, if it can be replaced in the upright position or should be laid on it's side, replaced then wait 24 hours before plugging it in when placed upright, etc etc. Thanks

Thank you for your response and for using ManageMyLife.com.

Instructions for Install:

  1. Unplug the Kenmore freezer, and move it so you can access the rear of the appliance.
  2. Remove the rear access panel of the freezer with a screwdriver or hex head screwdriver as needed.
  3. Mount the new relay overload protector in the space on the freezer chassis. In general, the relays are placed on the freezer chassis near the compressor motor. Check the manual for your specific Kenmore freezer model. Relay protectors are typically 2 by 3 inches and rectangular or square in size. It may either clip into the chassis or be secured by screws.
  4. Discharge the capacitor before touching the terminals. Connect two lengths of wire to alligator clips at each end. Clamp the alligator clip at each end of the wires to either side of a 150K Ohm resistor. Attach the free alligator clips at the end of the wires to the capacitor terminals and wait approximately 30 seconds. Disconnect the clips and set aside.
  5. Connect the wires from the capacitor to the two main start relay terminals. The wires may wrap around screw type terminals or may need to be inserted into the terminal opening. In either case, use a pair of wire strippers to remove the last half-inch or so of wiring from the capacitor wires if it isn't removed already.
  6. Connect the condenser fan motor to the relay. Connect one of the fan motor terminal wires to the third terminal on the start relay. This terminal typically is set off from the first two terminals. Connect the second terminal wire from the fan motor to the first terminal on the relay.
  7. Plug in the Kenmore freezer to verify that the compressor starts and the unit begins cooling. If it doesn't, unplug it and check your wire connections. When the freezer is running properly, replace the service panel and secure with the screws.

If you have any further questions or inquiries, please don't hesitate to ask. Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

Thanks very much. Do you happen to know if the power rating of the 150k ohm resister is important?

I changed this relay and the symptoms are the exact same. Might the new relay have been bad? Any other ideas?

A:

Check the defrost timer. Manually advance the defrost timer with the knob to see if turns the freezer on. The defrost time is located in the outside back of the freezer. If the freezer turns on you have a bad timer. You can also disconnect the timer and jump two wires to turn on freezer. You need a wire diagram of your freezer. Usually white and yellow or yellow and blue. This will activate the cooling cycle. Low voltage can destroy ac motors and compressors. I would check the winding in the compressor. Check your main thermostat.

Relays will not be damaged by low voltage.

Most likely a bad defrost timer or main thermostat. I would check those first. Use a digital multimeter to run the checks.

Thanks for the reply Aaron. I might be mistaken but I think the only control I have on this freezer is the electronic touchpad , inside light comes on when door is opened and back panel green LEDs all look good - just no cooling action otherwise.
