    The refrigerator no freezer will get colder than room temperature but the motor is running and the compressor will kick on for maybe 30 seconds and then kick off for approximately 3 minutes. I vacummed out the coils and they were pretty dirty but now it still wont get cold and the compressor keeps cycling multiple short cycles but does not get either the freezer or fridge cold. I have the controls set one notch past factory recommended setting. The lights are all on and motor runs so there is power. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

When you say runs awhile, how long? What is shutting off all power or just compressor?

NOTE: This
is a multi-solution answer since I don't have all the tech from your question to pinpoint your problem
But the solution is in here generically, if you read and study the solutions very,very carefully.

Sounds like the cold control has stuck . Unplug the two wires from the cold control and plug them together. Turn one wire over and plug it into the other. away from the cold control.
The cold control is the knob in the ref that turns it on and off and has numbers on it. (Thermostat)
If it runs then that cold control (Thernostat) is the problem.
If that doesn't work DO THIS:
The relay on the compressor may need replaced
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
Thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
also try hooking the two wires together on the cold control to route around the cold control.
Be sure the BACK COVER is in place and hasnt been accidently removed.

We have a Kenmore Progressive Model 116 Upright bagged vacuum with Hepa filter. It's at least a couple years old. For quite some time now when ever we use the vacuum the vacuum motor will shut off nafter...


I suspect that you have a restriction. The motor sounds like the thermal break is stopping the motor before damage, due to heat.
You must witness that the entire suction and discharge side are clear. This is not always very easy, but necessary. I bet that you find something blocking somewhere...

I need to what the model # is . If it has a bottom kick panel . Use a puddy knife or a small blade screw driver and run it along the top of the panel from either side untill you feel it stop . Push in to it in a down ward motion and pull back from the side to pop the clip . Then do the same from the side. Then lift the panel off the hooks to remove panel.

Kenmore model 596.71103101 stopped working. No sounds at all, no cooling. Un plugged for awhile, plugged in, still nothing, cranked freezer control to Max, started working


Sounds like a defective cold control thermostat. Remove the wires from the thermostat and jump them together. If it runs continuosly for 45 minutes, replace the thermostat.

Nothing inn the canister after using,suctione working,bottom roller working,no air leaks from hoses.Also when running awhile it shuts off by itself,have to wait awhile to use again


I'm not sure what vacuum you have, but that sounds like a blockage to me. Thermal shut off kicks in, shutting the motor down, to prevent damage from overheating. After waiting like 1 hour it probably comes back on. Make sure hose, filters, bag (if any) is clean. All "airways" of vacuums need to be clear of any blockages, since airflow is what makes vacuums work.

Kenmore compressor cycles and does not cool


It sounds like you have a stuck compressor or bad start capacitor.
