Won't freeze on freezer side ( defrosting) and won't get cold on refridgerator side


If you have confirmed that the unit is defrosting and the freezer isn't getting cold. Make sure underneath the refrigerator is completely clean and the fan is running underneath the refrigerator next to the coils. If this all checks out then you have a bad compressor or lost of refrigerant due to a leak in the system. One last thing: Is the cooling fan running in the freezer?

Kenmore side by side cold spot 4 years old just stopped cooling and freezing


Defrost problem is possibly the reason. I need to know the model number for example 213.25897 would be a way that Sears identifies their appliances. Let me know which model and we will go from there. Thanks, Sea Breeze

My kenmore refrigerator side by side


All the cooling takes place in the freezer and is blown over to the frig side so the frig side will start to warm up soon. Possible cause is the starting device to the compressor is faulty, compressor motor locked up or cold control faulty and not closing.

I have a Kennmore Cold spot Model # 57285791. The center strip where the two doors meet is extremely hot and everything in the freezer is defrosted.


2 things you neeed to check first of all clean teh coils underneath the refrig. then pull unit from wall and pull off rear compartment cover and see if the fan that cools compressor is running. it is possible the motor is jammed or bad. if the motor is bad you can put a house fan blowing into the comp compartment until you get it repaired.

I would look to the condenser where the heat is removed from the refrigeration system for your problem. Check and make sure the condenser fan operates, check the compressor for operation. If the condenser is plugged with dust it will cause the compressor to cycle on its thermal overload protector. Normally in back there is a removable panel to access the condenser and compressor area. make sure you reinstall the cover after you are done. It is critical to proper operation and cooling of the system.

dm, I'm not sure if the thermostat is mechanical or electronic. Assuming mechanical...and I do...turn it to the lowest number...does it turn off? If this works properly, the problem is likely not the control. Does the compressor turn off at any time? If not after an hour or so of operation, the stat could be defective. That's my first guess. Oh, have you made sure that you don't have the ducts in the freezer blocked? The would deflect too much cold air to the fridge section.

Next, defrost the unit and clean the condenser coils. This will help the unit work properly. Then, wait awhile with the unit off. Meanwhile, access the compressor in the rear of the unit. Find the largest pipe coming out of the compressor. Turn the unit on. The largest pipe should frost and then, in about 5 minutes or so...either cause condensation or dry out. If neither happens and the line is either not COLD to the touch or frosty, you're low on gas. If the unit is less than 5 years old, you may get warranty coverage on the sealed unit from the mfgr. Believe it or not, too little gas will cause freezing in some cases!
