Question about Kenmore 53092 / 53094 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

My refrigerator/freezer isnt getting cold enough

Have a side by side Kenmore, and it is running constantly but unable to freeze anything. Also, the refrigerator side isnt as cold as it should be. I read on here the freon might be low, is this a common thing and why would it be low on freon all of a sudden? The refrigerator is about 8 1/2 yrs old and I figure that isnt very old for a refrigerator. Model # is 596.57542791 from the plate inside. Thanks so much!!

The problem usually isnt in the freon it usually is in the defrost system located in the freezer.I guess you have got this fixed by now and Im sorry for taking so long to get back to you but I havent used the computer in about four months because of family emerg. if you have any more problems let me know.

Freezer compartment of refrigerator not freezing


First, I think it’s important to know that the Ref side has no cooling coils, it’s basically a box and the cold air in the freezer is blown over by a fan through a channel into the Ref side. This channel has a door which regulates how much cold air goes through. You probably have two control knobs in the Ref side, one controls the temp with numbers 1-9, 9 being the coldest. This temp control tells the compressor how long to run. The other control is for that little door and it may have letters A-E, E being the coldest. If you set it on E (coldest) then this will close that little door and keep most the cold air in the freezer.
So, how can the Ref side be cold and the freezer side not freezing?

1. Coolant leak. There is enough coolant to keep the Ref side cool but not enough to freeze on the freezer side.

2. Defrost system failure. The coils on the freezer side are clogged with ice and it's just a matter of time when the Ref side won't cool either. The back wall in the freezer will be covered with ice/frost

Kenmore


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

Freezer is over-freezing


most have 2 controls in the refrigerator side. 1 is a thermostat or cold control the other is a air damper. the damper allows the flow of air from the freezer to the freshfod side. if it is closed all the way you are keeping all the cold air in the freezer and that will make it colder. most cold controls monitor the air in the fresh food section and regulate the temp. and some controls are confusing and the damper actually works in the reverse of what you think. but if the unit is always running you may have a bad cold control and it is sensing the temp in the refrigerator side is not col enough, so it will continue to run until is can be satisfyed. check the control to make sure it is shutting of if you turn it up. if not I would replace it. I dont know how old the unit is but you also may have some electronics that control the temp to.
