SOURCE: my kenmore upright freezer quit working after power outage

is there any lights on in the freezer? try plugging the freezer into an outlet you know is working. there is no "reset" on the freezer so if lights are on and it still isnt working it could possibly be stuck in defrost or the thermostat could be stuck in the off position.

for the defrost problem: pull freezer from wall and look in the compressor area and you will see a control under the unit left of the compressor. using a flat blade screwdriver advance the timer clockwise a few clicks and it will probably come back on. if that doesnt work lets check the thermostat.

thermostat stuck: this is easy but you need to check def timer first. using the handle of you screw driver tap the thermostat knob firmly. if the contacts are stuck open when you hit it the contacts will release and the unit will come back on.

hope this helps..

simple stuff, you have a compressor a stat and power. check the receptacle to be sure you have 120 volts . then check the compressor with stat at max cold setting to see if you have 120 volts at compressor. if you do then compresssor is bad =new compressor or new unit. if no power to compressor then stat is bad= new stat. i always recomend new unit cause new stat or compressor wont fix a freon leak.... i have replaced a few compressors that died soon after due to a freon leak. good luck...

SOURCE: how to reset a samsung refrigerator model number rs261mdpn aftthea power outage

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/Samsung-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/DA41-00669A/0046/401/Model-RS261MDPNXAA/1482/0165000


this is the control board you will need for your model if unplugging the unit for 5 minutes doesn't fix the problem. If they are LED lights, then I point my finger at this. This is a plug and play board with molex connectors. Very easy to install with unit unplugged. You can manually reset the display and check for error codes by holding the top left and top right button on your user interface for 5 seconds in unison FOR 5 or more seconds after all the lights flash.

How to reset Kenmore chest freezer after power outage


It should come back on automatically when power is restored. If not you could have had a power spike or low voltage and caused damage.

I have a kenmore upright freezer model / 970-187020 and we had a power outage and now my temperature control is not working right and it says OFF all the time.


Sometimes when the power comes back on you get a power spike or low voltage, this can damage electrical components.

Look for a reset button/switch and reset it or go to your local homedepot because they have a 800 number you can call to help you fix it yourself.
