This is normal. some of the hot pipework is led across the side and across the transom between fridge and freezer to prevent condensation

Refrigerator and freezer not cooling/freeding


Possibly a defrost circuit problem -

1) Bad defrost thermostat
2) Bad defrost heater
3) Bad defrost timer
4) Failed evaporator fan motor.

Look for frost accumulated inside the louvers at the back panel, top and bottom. If you see it, remove food from freezer and put in ice chest. Take out shelves, get hair dryer and warm the backside of the freezer, directing air down the louvers. Then leave to sit for 4-6 hours with the freezer door open. Put towels in the bottom of the freezer to catch any melted ice.
After period of time, plug unit back in and power the unit back up. Once you know it's cooling, empty ice chests back into freezer.

If there is a problem in any of the above components, then it will show up in 3-4 weeks witht he same problem again.

Kenmore refrigerator 5260 not cold


  • the defrost timer on your machine is actually integrated within a control board/air diffuser. hopefully that is not the problem (expensive).
  • i would start by testing the heater and bimetal thermostat in the freezer. (note: the bimetal thermostat will only have continuity when below 40 degrees.)
  • the heat you feel between the doors is normal (if it is not too hot). 
  • some of the heat that is released by the machine is intentionally released between the doors to prevent condensation.
  •  if it seems warmer than usual then you might need to clean the coils under the machine and make sure the airflow under the machine is not obstructed at all. 
  • if the coils are dirty then they will not be able to release the heat properly and the heat will be released in other areas like between the doors.

problem has been almost certainly caused by freezer door not being completley closed allowing warm humid air into freezer, (do not say this could not happen because it often does), sollution, turn off defrost overnight, turn on following day, within 24hrs unit will work ok. Regards Adviso
