It may be a sensor. Don't replace a control center unless you have determined it's bad. The sensor has to be wired to the board controller. Usually smaller cable with 2 conductors. If it has an alarm then there may g e as many as 6 or 8 or more wires going to the board. Using your wire diagram Find the sensor for temp. Sometimes the ohm value is given on the wire diagrams. You will also need the temperature at the point the sensor is connected inside. Your ohm reading should be close to the temp given in a table or from the manufacturer. If it's close sensor ok. Take next step.

Does it have a high temperature alarm? I have an older Kenmore with this that requires a 9 volt backup battery to activate the alarm if the power goes off. If the battery goes dead over time, the alarm won't shut off even with the power on. My battery is behind a small door on the left side end of the plastic floor dress plate on the bottom front of the freezer. I use a 9 volt lithium battery myself. I have a backup generator so it doesn't have a lot of time to run on the battery. Where an alkaline battery lasts me about 18 months, This lithium battery has been in for 3 years and shows no sign of failing yet. They have a shelf life of 15 years or more all though they won't last that long in this application. It's worth not coming home and not finding the dogs going wild due to the high pitched beep. Good luck.

Never heard of an electric freezer with a 9v battery. What is freezer model #?

Kenmore Freezers | Answered on Nov 20, 2018


For bottom freezer 111 models:
The control detects low refrigerant charge or a defective compressor. A refrigerator service technician will need to complete this repair because it involves the recovery and recharge of refrigerant (Freon).

Consult your owners manual but maybe it’s to designate Fahrenheit as opposed to Celsius

What is model # and why would it have a 9v battery?

Kenmore Freezers | Answered on Oct 22, 2018


These ideas ****. Question was, what causes ice to build up in the chest freezer.

youyr best bet would be to build a frame that the casters are welded to and there are no holes in the outer shell of the freezer. some L shaped angle would work nicely for this application and then there would be plenty of support for when the freezer is loaded up with product. Be sure that teo of the casters are lockable and two in the swivel freely.

most all appliances are designed to be in an ambient not to exceed 80 degrees. Units will function but not up to design specs and would really strain to work. Only commercial unit can survive in temps up to 95 degrees in the Southeast U.S. and this temp varies depending on your general location.

First question would be, is the compressor running? If yes, then there is a refrigeration issue. If no, then there is either a control issue or compressor component issue. We really need to do the question and answer "game" in order to troubleshoot. Let me know if I can be of any possible help. Good luck!

I can only suggest, at this time, to try and trouble shoot your issue(s) via traditional procedures. In most all cases, a wiring diagram can get you thru most troubles. So sorry I can not be of any further help. I also tried to location info on the internet and struck out at every turn. Let me know if I can be of any possible help. Good Luck!
