Question about Kenmore 53642 / 53644 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Refrigerator not cooling properly

I have a Kenmore side by side refrigerator that is about 10 years old. I don't know the model number. We recently experienced 11 days without electricity due to Hurricane Ike. Since then, the unit is continually running. The refrigerator is set on the coldest setting and will barely get down to 40 degrees. The doors appears to be sealing OK. The freezer side gets down to 0 degrees at a middle setting. Could 11 days without electricity have caused a problem. Is there something I can do or is it time to get a new refrigerator?

You need to turn the frezzer downso it lets more cold air into frig. and put the frig setting back in the middle,aslo vac off your coils under the frig.all this should work,if not let me know,also check to see if you have any frost buildup on the freezer walls-mike

Water puddle from refrigerator towards back


If you have a water line running in for an ice maker check to ensure all fitings are tight. Secondly check to see if cooling coils are completely clear and free of debri (this will allow the unit to properly breath and hopefully eliminate your problem)

Kenmore side by side cold spot 4 years old just stopped cooling and freezing


Defrost problem is possibly the reason. I need to know the model number for example 213.25897 would be a way that Sears identifies their appliances. Let me know which model and we will go from there. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Old refrigerator is not cold enough


I will need the model number of your refrigerator to help you better. Most older refrigerator have a defrost timer. But not knowing what yours is I won't be able to answer with a good answer. May things that cause the refrigerator to not cool properly are possible. So let me know what you find, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Stopped cooling


Hello cpuklutz
Welcome


You said, Kenmore; 21 cu ft; 10-years old; just stopped cooling; wondering if it even makes any financial sense to get estimate to repair, or is 10 years about it's trouble free length of service

Here is an article that you may find useful and interesting related to your situation.
Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers),
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator
six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.

Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

Thank You, HUUUM
