    how to check the defrost heater?

  • hi_win May 11, 2010

    Hi,

    I have the same fridge # 203c2181p003, and can't get help from Sears with that model number. I must be missing stickers from my fridge, bc they want an official sears model number starting with 105....? Do you have the official sears model number?



    Also, if you are wanting to get rid of the fridge, I'd be willing to buy parts off of it.



    Thanks,

    Win

A kenmore side by side model 106 5661 2500 has warm refer and cold freezer


If the freezer temps are normal and the refrigerator is warmer than normal, the the air flow from freezer to refrigerator is being hampered either by ice on the evaporator or the freezer is stuff in such a way that normal airflow between freezer and fridge is hampered. If the auto defrost is not working properly you will have warmer freezer temps and a relatively warm refridge. Check the defrost timer and defrost heater element.

The refrigerator is not staying cold. the freezer works fine. we tried the settings to no avail. any advice?


Quick temporary fix - defrost the freezer (inside frezer lower back) it is probably full of frost/ice - this prevents air flow and therefore no air enters fridge side. common failure due to bimetal defrost thermostat failure ($20) - replace part for permanent fix

Freezer side cold, food side warm not working


3 possible problems.... Machine is possibly not defrosting (if this is it, eventually the freezer will not work as well) The damper between the two sides is possibly not operating, or the fan on the freezer side is possibly not blowing the cold air into the fresh food side.

I have a Kenmore coldspot side by side- not cooling properly


Setting it to 5 is what the manufacturer recommends. If you set it to 1 and the frig is still not cold, then you probably have a faulty cold control (thermostat)
