Customer Question

I have a Kenmore upright freezer model 253.280528013. The freezer was disconnected and moved on Thursday, including the removal of the door. It was reinstalled Friday and the door reattached - it started up fine. Tonight I came home to find it flashing between "E" and "9" on the control panel. It is fairly cold inside, but clearly warming up. The light does not work, but I can hear refrigerant moving in the unit. I can't find anything in my owner's manual about this error code. Any advice/insights?
Thank you!

Please give me time to respond sometimes I get your replies late so there may be a delay in my response.

That is an open thermister code. You need to check the thermister it should be mounted on the evaporator behind the panel in the inside of the freezer. If that tests good replace the board if it does not replace the thermister.
