Kenmore Freezer Battery Installation


Some Kenmore freezers have a high-temperature alarm that sounds when the temperature inside of the freezer raises to a level indicating either the cooling system has failed or the freezer is not receiving power. Although the freezer runs on electricity, the alarm and alarm temperature sensor have a battery back-up that alerts you to rising temperatures, even in a power outage. Eventually the battery will die and require replacement. When the battery is nearing the end of it's life, the freezer emits and audible beep, different than the alarm beep. To silence the beep and ensure that your freezer's internal temperature is constantly monitored, replace the battery.

Things You'll Need

  • 9-volt battery
  • Locate the battery compartment on the right side of the front grill, below the freezer door.

  • Squeeze the clip at the top of the battery compartment and pull back to remove the cover.

  • Pull the battery out of the compartment.

  • Pull the old battery off of the battery terminals.

  • Snap the battery terminals onto the terminals of the new battery. The terminals are two different sizes, making it impossible to connect the battery backwards.

  • Insert the battery into the compartment and snap the cover back into place.
