Have a repair or installation question?

Kenmore upright freezer reset button 253.23414100

I have a Kenmore upright freezer. model # 253.23414100 it seems that the reset button is very hard to push. you have to push it just right to get it to reset. I'm assuming there is a problem with the button itself. I was going to order a new bezel but I wasn't sure what I all had to order. just the bezel or the overlay also??? or does it all come as a package???

The reset button being hard to push can be aggravating. I did some research on your model number but was unable to find an answer to how to fix the button. Your expert will be able to help answer your question. It may take 24-48 hours. I do hope that everything works out.

Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern about the button. You will probably need to replace both the overlay # 216885701 and the bezel # 216878700. The overlay will usually be damaged when peeling it off. Both of these parts are available at http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Freezer-Parts/Model-25323414100/0582/0142000?pathTaken=&prst=0&shdMod=25323414100&sid=MMLxexpertxmerch . 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.

Do I need the overlay for the bezel (button) to work???

Scott D , October 17, 2012

Blaine, the overlay is not needed for the buttons to work but without the overlay, the buttons will be exposed to the atmosphere and they may become hard to operate. I would not recommend leaving the overlay off.
