How to Disable the Alarm on a Kenmore Freezer

Some models of Kenmore freezers include an alarm feature. The alarm, when turned on, constantly monitors the internal temperature of the freezer and detects whether the door is open or closed. If the temperature in the freezer begins to rise, or the door is left ajar for an extended period of time, the alarm will sound to alert you of the problem. In some instances, you may wish to disable the alarm, such as if you are defrosting the freezer. Kenmore freezers have a switch that allows you to choose whether or not to be alerted by the alarm due to a rising temperature in the freezer.

Step 1

Open the freezer door.

Step 2

Locate the "High Temp Alarm" switch, located on the bottom-right of the freezer's door jamb.

Step 3

Move the switch to the "Off" position.
