Re: it just starts and stops after few seconds ...

It sounds like either the compressor is bad, or the overload and relay assembly mounted to the compressor is bad. The easiest way to determine which is to put an amp meter on the power wire to the compressor assembly. It should only read a few amps while running. If it reads excessive amperage, you have a bad compressor. If you do not have an amp meter, then you could just go get a start relay and overload from a parts store and try changing those parts, as they are much cheaper and eaiser than changing the compressor....just unplug it before messinfg around inside the overload cover on the side of the compressor! Good Luck!

The freezer door was left open .. Compressor will not turn off even though freezer temperature now -21.

Try adjusting the temprature control knob. Make a mental note of what it's set at before changing. If compressor doesn't stop at warmest setting the sensor may be bad.

My side by side fridge has stopped chilling down, the power is Ok, and moter seems to be working, but no cold inside. A few months ago the freezer side stopped, but as i did not use it , i just left well...

. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay. Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

Is the evaporator fan in the freezer running. It blows cold air into the fridge side through a damper in the wall between the freezer and fridge. Make sure the damper is open.

Below the evaporator fan is the evaporator coils. Remove the back cover in the freezer to observe the frost pattern. Light frost everywhere(NORMAL) or a partial pattern of ice(LOW ON FREON) or nothing(LOW FREON OR COMPRESSOR PROBLEM).

OK, it sounds like you have a defrost problem. When left unplugged for a few days the frost melted off the evaporator (the cooling coils behind the freezer wall) but after you ran it again, the coils blocked the air flow again, usually happens after a week or so, depending on # of door openings, humidity in home, etc. Most likely you have a burnt out defrost heater.

White Kenmore 564.98291890 - Freezing in refrigerator

This is a pretty simple built refrigerator, no circuit boards or electronic sensors.
What it sounds like is your thermostat is sticking and not turning the compressor off when it gets to the correct temp.
The control knob is mounted directly to the thermostat, so when you turn the knob you are turning the thermostat.
The only thing you can do is replace it. It is a pretty simple repair you should be able to do yourself. Once you have the new part, UNPLUG the fridge, remove the knob and take the control box loose. You should see how to change it from there.
Be careful with the long metal tube that is attached to the new thermostat. It is pretty durable but if you break it the thermostat is ruined. They don't break easily but you should be sure not to kink it..
Post back if you need help with it.
