Freezer not staying constant temperature
« on: October 19, 2010, 08:50:40 PM »

I have a Kenmore 253.9280213 upright freezer.  It won't stay a constant temperature.  It cycles between 4 degrees and 32 degrees no matter what I have the temperature dial set to.  Any ideas for what is wrong?

Have you looked at the compressor relay? It might be on it's way out.
