HI thanks for your question. the problem you are having is that its not going into the defrost cycle. its not an expensive repair, probably $ 150. 00. unless you have the proper meter to check i would call a tech . but its more likely the defrost timer. or the defrost thermostat. thanks the appliance doc. please rate my answer. thanks.

Kenmore side by side - model - 253.54739304. we moved it from one house to another. it was working fine. now won't freeze or cool properly. like it is in defrost mode. compressor was not running...


if while moving it , you laid it on its side, it collected air in the lines, having it unplugged is a good idea, normally 24 hours is enough for the air to settle,, try it again after that time,

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)

Kenmore Coldspot Side by Side Model 51559101


Unplug the Ref for 15-20 min., plug it back in and listen for the compressor to start. You will need to be behind the Ref so you can tell if the compressor or the fan is running. It will help to take the cover off so you can see the compressor.
Compressor not running but you hear a clicking noise. The relay needs to be replaced.
Compressor runs but not cooling. Low on coolant

Fridge not cooling


Hello.
The most common thing that happens while moving a frig is when moving it they put the dolly underneath the condenser fan housing and bend it into the fan causing the compressor to overheat before it has a chance to cool down everything. If this isn't the case then I will send you a list of things to check out. Let me know.

Kenmore side by side not cooling after a move


go to the back of the fridge see if it has a white relay on the compressor that's the piece that plugs onto the compressor if it does un plug the unit take it off and shake it if it rattles and little black stuff falls out of it replace it with a three in one relay from an appliance repair parts store just follow the instructions on the part its easy don't worry about water in the ice maker it will fill when it starts cooling if it doesn't have the relay try turning it off for 24 hours to give the oil time to run back down to the compressor and advise me further
