SOURCE: kenmore side by side refrigerator model 106.56532400

Hi,
Thanks for taking this question.
Kenmore 22 cft side by side does not have air circulation. Freezer is cold at the bottom (ranges 5-45 deg from bottom to top). Refrigerator section is 30- 60 deg from bottom to top. Thermostat is good; compressor is working; no ice deposit on the evaporator coils; condenser coils have been cleaned; defrost heater is working. I do not feel the air draft I used to notice whenever opened refrigerator door. Is it possible that the air recirculation fan not operating. Location of this fan in the refrigerator? Regards, Prem

ok first we need to see if your vent flap up top is bing iced over. you need either a philips screw driver or a 1/4 in nut driver. take off the cover to that flap. this flap is controlled by the electronic strip that controls the temp. on both sides. one question, is their ice build up in the back of the freezer? ok write me back when you get this done. kelly.

SOURCE: Freezer works, Fridge doesn't

The defrost timer inside the fresh food compartment is most likely the problem. Need to turn the timer slowly clockwise until compressor stops. I should remain off for about 25 minutes. During that time the freezer should be in defrost. You may be able to open the freezer door and hear the crackling and sizzle of the defrost taking place. If the timer does not restart the refrigerator after 25 minutes the turn the timer clockwise again until the compressor restarts. Number 6 in photo below is the defrost timer. The replacement timer part number is 482493. Here is a photo. Thanks Sea Breeze

When I close my side x side frig the freezer door pops open


This happens because the refrigerators of today are air tight, the fresh food door pushes the air into the cabinet as it closes and the air has no place to go but up the air vent into the freezer and "pops" open the freezer door. First thing is make sure the freezer door is capable of closing properly and is not rubbing or catching anywhere. I sometimes add a washer or 2 to the center hinge under the freezer door so it doesn't rub anything. Put a little Vaseline ( or food grade silicone lubricant ) on the hinge side of the seal. I then raise the front of the refrigerator so that the front of the refrigerator is a little higher than the back of the refrigerator. Never level a fridge with a level. Once you have the door closing properly and front slightly higher than the back...let the fresh food door close from 90 degrees on it's own and the freezer door may "pop" open a little but will close again on it's own...and stay closed once all is set up properly. We see this more often now and have no trouble with the door staying open again after setting up the refrigerator properly.

Good day,
There is a complete warranty on the machine and cabinet for the first 12 months. The selling dealer should supply you with a free warranty service call.
There are variences allowed for such things by the manufacturer, but they should make you whole.
Contact the dealer first.

Friction between the doors


look at the hinge on the top of the freezer door, unloosen the bolts that's holding the bracket, move the door a little bit to the left then tighten the bolts again. that should solve your problem.
