The first step in diagnosing an ongoing freezer problem is to identify the cause. A malfunction of the temperature control thermostat can cause the freezer to operate continuously. Often this problem is solved by replacing or resetting the thermostat. Another common cause is the malfunction of the thermistor temperature sensor. If you notice that your freezer continues to work, consult a freezer repair technician.
The internal temperature of your Kenmore commercial freezer can also cause it to operate continuously. If this temperature is set too high, the compressor will have to work harder to cool the unit. You can adjust the temperature by following the manufacturer’s instructions. Once the adjustment is made, the refrigerator will begin to operate more efficiently. Improvements will generally be noticeable within 24 hours. However, if you notice that the problem has returned, you may need to consider replacing the drive.
Another possible cause of the freezer to operate continuously is a damaged door or lid seal. The door is an important part of the freezer because it forms an airtight seal. If the door is cracked or damaged, it will prevent the compressor from shutting down. Hot, humid air will also enter the freezer, causing frost to build up. A professional freezer repair technician can fix a broken door or install a new one.
You can also contact a service professional if the problem persists after a couple of weeks or months. The representative will be able to assess your problem and make recommendations. They will also be able to determine which parts you will need to repair your appliance.
