Refrigirator not cooling up

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.

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.

these have to be in correctly to lock back in and allow the unit to function. Try removing the bin again and be sure there isn't any small pieces of ice trapped anywhere. Also make sure there aren't any broken pieces from the bin. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Kenmore coldspot not making ice, and not cooling in the bottom


Your refrigerator is frosted up. Remove the inside panel of your freezer. Defrost the ice out of the coils and check the heater and bi-metal. If both are good then your defrost timer is bad. If one is bad replace and you have it fixed. Good luck.

Kenmore Coldspot Ice maker is not working on our side by side refrigerator


Just above the tray that holds the ice cubes is a wire bar. If the bar is down, it will make ice. If the bar is up, it will stop making ice. When there is enough Ice in the tray, when the bar comes downm, it will hit the ice. If the bar is not completely down, no ice will be made.

I bet the bar is stuck, or you don't have a water supply to make ice (or it's plugged - de-ice the freezer).
