Question about Kenmore 53642 / 53644 Side by Side Refrigerator
My refrigerator is not cooling up and no ice maker my kenmore coldspot side by side stainless refrigerator has been making the clonking noise for months now, it clonks consistantly every hour or so, and today the freezer is not cooling nor the refrigerator. All the lights are on and it seems to be working however its not cooling. The center partition between the two doors has been VERY hot for months also. I took alot of lint and dust out from the gate below the doors, could all of this lint contributed to blowing out the cooling device.
My kenmore freezer on top model is freezing food but the ice cream is soft.

Most probably it is your coils are filled with lint and dirt. Yes, you need to get a brush (they sell a lint brush to clean the coils) and more importantly the pipe of a vaccum or a shop vac and take out the bottom piece under the fridge and clean the coils as best you can. Also pull the fridge out and vaccuum any open space you can get too from the back (pull up the cardboard and clean behind it). Push the fridge in and out a couple times, vacuum again. Hopefully you should then be good to go.
