Temperature alarm not working on Whirlpool Model EV161NZTQ freezer

(1/3) > >>

Alarm buzzer does not work even with the alarm switch in the TEST position.   Looked at the parts list for this freezer and cannot find the alarm buzzer near the back of the freezer by the compressor as shown in the diagram.
I believe it is located at the right, rear vertical panel in with a bundle of wiring harnesses, but would like to see a picture of the buzzer before taking things apart.
Have looked at several repair parts sites, but none of them have a picture of the alarm buzzer, just the description and price.
Does anyone know where to get a service manual for the Whirlpool Model EV161NZTQ freezer?  That should show me what it looks like and exactly where it is.

Thanks, Bob

Could not find a image or service manual, sorry.
Maybe another tech will be able to come up with something for us.

If nothing else when you do find it take a photo of it for us.

I got the picture of the freezer alarm from another site, PartsDr.com.   Have to give them the credit for taking the time to pull the part from stock and taking an image of it.   :cheers:     I have attached it for future reference.

Now to where it is located.  It is not at the right, rear vertical panel in the back where all of the harnesses are,as I thought it might be.  That is where the defrost timer and the compressor capacitor are.  There is no colored wire harness with a thermocouple clip lead on it in the back.  I suspect it is in the freezer under the covered enclosure where the cooling coil and the evaporator fan motor reside.  That is the only place I can think of for where the thermocouple clip would go (somewhere in that area).

I can't confirm this because I am not about to empty the freezer to remove the panel and take a look, but that is the only other place it can be.  It  is not in the control panel enclosure where the thermostat is, as far as I can see.  The parts diagram does not show the true location for all parts, especially the freezer alarm buzzer and the defrost timer.

Hope this will help someone else in the future.

i'm sure your correct as the sensor clip looks as though it is designed to clip on the evap coil. good luck, let us know. O0
