Customer Question

I have a Kenmore Elite and we recently lost power to the house. Once the power was back on, the alarm on the freezer kept going off and I continually have to hit the reset button. What is the fix for this?

The first thing you need to do is check to see if the temperature is getting down below 10ºF. If not, then you have a cooling problem and your compressor or a fan motor could have been damaged. If it is getting below 10 degrees, your control board was just shorted from the power outage and you'd need to replace the control board.
