Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore freezer model # 25316582103 keeps running what is wrong with it. 25316582103 Kenmore Elite Freezer

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your freezer. Upon researching model 25316582103; if it's constantly running, first check to see what the temperature is, inside the cabinet. The ideal temperature is zero degrees but a fluctuation of 5 degrees is ok. To check the temperature, place a thermometer between some packages. If the temperature is below 5 degrees and it never stops running, turn the thermostat to a slightly warmer setting. If it still won't shut off, the thermostat would need to be replaced. If the temperature is above 8 degrees and the unit is constantly running, it would lead to a sealed system problem. A technician would be required to make this type of check and repair. Now, if the unit is located in a warm location, it could also affect the run time.

I trust this information will help you, we appreciate your business thank for choosing Sears.

Q:

Kenmore Elite Chest Freezer makes intermittent clicking noise 25316582103 Kenmore Elite Freezer

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I will be more than happy to help with your freezer. Upon researching model 25316582103; it sounds like the start capacitor may need to be replaced. The clicking sound is normally the compressor trying to start, so when it clicking constantly this can cause the compressor to overheat since it’s trying to start over and over.  The start capacitor energizes the compressor to start, so when the capacitor fails it can cause the compressor to overheat trying to start over and over until it ruins the compressor. I have posed a link of the start capacitor to view the link click here

Kenmore Elite Freezer Model #25316582103 25316582103

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
Sorry to hear of the issue you're having with the chest freezer not working, I know how concerning that is to have occur.
This freezer has two different boards, along with the overlay for the temp control. There is also a start relay for the compressor that could cause the compressor to not start if it was defective. Any of these parts could cause the issue you are referring to. 
Ideally, the various components in the circuit should be tested and diagnosed with a multimeter to determine which part is at fault. We do not recommend testing electrical components, especially the high voltage board in the back unless you are experienced in doing so. 
If you would feel more confident have a Sears Home Service technician help assist with the diagnosis/repair, you can call 1-800-349-5071, or click here to be directed to the page to set up service.
Thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.
