SOURCE: 1999 Kenmore side by side fridge not cooling

You're frosting up due to either: bad defrost timer/heater or low gas. I'm assuming that you completely defrosted the unit, that there are no open liquids inside and the door remained closed most of the time to remove the threat of excess moisture in the box.

Defrost timer issues:

The unit should 'rest' about 1-2 hours a day where you don't hear the compressor and the unit should try to melt the ice. It has a heater to do that. The timer or the heater or a connection could be bad.

More likely: you've got a low gas situation. The way to check is that the compressor should come on at some point. Check the larger tube. Is should get frosty and then clear off or stay wet. It might even dry off. If it remains frosty...you're low on gas. Depending on the type of gas you need...it may be R 12...they unit may be unrepairable by other than a licensed tech.

Remove the bottom snap in grille and vacuum out the dirt and dust from the coil and anything else you can reach. You may need to make an extension with paper towel tubes flattened a little and tape to get into the cramped spaces. I use a piece of clear plastic pipe stuck in the suction with a long angled split cut on the cleaning end. Maybe also move the fridge out, vacuum and clean the flooring area also. (And every 6 months)

Sounds like you did all the right things. Consider taking it back to the store where you purchased the unit or call for warranty service. There should be no good reason for you have to to pay extra.

Well, first check your compressor current ( you can check current draws by using clamp ampere). Compare the reading with your owner manual. If they are quite lot difference : your compressor is dead or relay is not work or your cable is loosen due to your previous activity.

This unit uses the cold air from the freezer to cool the fridge, you will find that the air duct has frozen up, completly defrost overnight with the doors open, this should rectify fault. Regards Advisor
