Hi, this is my first time to this forum. So I'd like to thank all for assistance in advance. I have a Kenmore stand up freezer that is causing me problems. It will only get down to around 20 degrees. It appears that the fan and coils are encased and inaccessible for cleaning. Would this be correct? I'd like to do this repair myself. Wondering if there's a relay that would go bad that would cause this? Also, the pan that I noticed that appears to wrap around the compressor has water in it that has an unpleasant smell. Is that just draining from the unit after I unplugged it? One more thing, the compressor would run and run to try to keep up. Thank you for taking the time to read my long winded message. Any help is appreciated.

Charlie

If I'm reading your complaint correctly, it sounds like you have an easily fixed problem.

What seems to have happened is that your drain has plugged with defrosted water and frozen and built up into your evaporator.

Unplug the unit and let the evap thaw completely and then take off the drain line and clean it out thoroughly and re-attach.

also make sure the Evapoprator Fan is running and check the frost pattern on the Evaporator

all behind # 25

Ok, thank you very much for the info and for the diagram. It looks as though the condenser fan is running fine and the coils were perfectly clean. The drain just consisted of a small hole that drops into the pan. Has a small vented cap. Boy, does the water in it smell bad though. What would be the next few steps in diagnosis? Oh, by the way, I let it run for about three hours and it only got down to 60 degrees.

the Condenser & Condenser Fan are behind the Fridge,

# 13 is the Evaporator Fan .. and the Evaporator coils should be evenly, completely frosted
after the Compressor has been running about an hour.
