Question about Kenmore 55223 Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a crack in the freezer wall of a Kenmore side by side. Is there a product (glue or caulk or something like that) that can be used to repair the crack and that will withstand the temperature?
Bpat, Im guessing that your model number begins with 106, If so it's built by Whirlpool. Look at your owners manual and see if it mentions a warranty on the liner. Some models carried a 10 year warranty against cracking. If not, there are some kits available out there to patch cracks but it's not the greatest looking deal. Catriver...post back

Cut the tip off the tube of caulk, and load the fresh tube into the caulking gun. Puncture the seal inside the tip of the tube using a nail, stiff wire or the special puncturing tool built onto many caulk guns.
Insert backer rod into large openings. These foam strips are available in sizes ranging from 3/8 inch to over 1 inch, and should be perfect for most bathroom filler needs. For larger holes, consider using a foam spray filler, but be careful as the foam expands a great deal and could overflow onto your work area if too much is used.
Caulk the joints as you normally would. For large cracks, don't force your caulking into the crevice, but simply form a bead over the crack. Use multiple beads and a caulking tool or piece of scrap lumber to shape the caulk and remove excess.
Allow the caulk to dry for 4 to 6 hours. Using the tip of your utility knife, check that the caulk adhered to all edges and formed a seal. For really large cracks, it may be necessary to repeat the process.
When caulking open cracks, place a bead along each edge of the crack. Allow the caulk to set for 5 minutes, and apply a third bead over the first two. Use the damp sponge to shape and remove excess caulk.

Silicone bath/shower sealant should work, the one that smells like vinegar. Also known as RTV.
Just make sure the area is dry, clean and free of old caulk.
It'll need to be at room temperature to set properly for a few hours.
I have used this sealant on things before that went as low as
-50C. Preperation is the key though.
