The control panel went dark and the alarm beep is going off about every minute.
This issue would most likely be caused by a faulty control board part number 216979700.
I took the overlay off and there are no screws to remove! Is there another way the handle comes off to replace the control board?
Answer Hello Tom,
As per the parts explosion there are two screws in deep holes toward the front that have to be removed to remove the board.
Where is the battery located on the kenmore elite freezer model 25326072100
When you look at the kickplate on your unit there will be a cover on the right hand side. This cover is where the battery for the unit goes.
Freezer is still working but display went goofy and has quit. To replace does the handle pop off or do u have to take lid apart?
To access the control board you will need to remove the overlay on the handle. There will be 2 screws under the overlay that you will remove to get the handle off. Turn handle over and the control board is on the back.
We have a problem with alarm going off when the freezer is working. We need a manual to review how to reset digital temperatures and alarm. Is there one online? The sears appliance repairman couldn't reset it without a manual. It may be still broken.
Answer Hello Suzanne,
I found a wiring diagram that I can send to you in an e-mail format, but it cannot be posted here. If you could re-post with an e-mail address, we can send it right out to you. You need to check the wiring harness at the bottom of the door to insure there are no frayed wires. Also use a popsicle stick to check that the interior light is going off, (close the door on the popsicle stick and twist the stick to see if the light is on). If these test good, the control will most likely have to be replaced.
