    The fan is running, but it is not cooling the center front panel. Ideas?

    if the fan down below the unit by compressor is running t, there must be excessive lint/ dust build up under unit preventing proper air flow acros the coil. the unit is trying to release the heat generated by normal operation, and that is the next logical area to do so..

    I vacuumed it out and blew the excess dust out already and it is still overheating.

Have a kenmore refrigerator freezer works but not refrigerator


You mean "How to Fix a Kenmore Refrigerator That Is Not Cold But the Freezer Is Good?"

Well this what i say,
Kenmore combination refrigerator and freezers combine the short- and long-term food storage options in a single unit. There are some occasions when the refrigerator compartment might appear to be malfunctioning while the freezer box stays cool. Ruling out these occasions ensures you have done everything you can to correct the problem before calling for a technician if necessary.

1.Verify that the temperature controls for the refrigerator compartment are properly configured. Tap the "^" or "v" buttons beside the refrigerator's LCD temperature display until "38," the ideal temperature, appears. The compartment could have been set too warm. Allow 24 hours for the the appliance to reach 38 degrees Fahrenheit.

2 Check that the refrigerator compartment door closes completely, objects inside the appliance could be holding the door ajar. When cool air is allowed to escape, the internal temperature rises. Cracked, holed or corroded door seals may also raise the refrigerator temperature.

3 Change how you use the refrigerator compartment; storing hot or warm food strains the appliance and causes a rise in internal temperatures. Do not prop open the door or leave it ajar for more than a few seconds at a time for the reasons outlined in Step 2.

4 Contact Kenmore if the refrigerator compartment remains too warm for your food. There may be a problem with the motor or any one of the other parts that regulate the temperature

If this was helpfu.l please let me know.

The center plate deviding the two doors gets real hot and my freezer is not frezing my food


Pull the unit out away from the wall and remove the rear cover that gives you access to the compressor area in the unit most of the time this is caused by the compressor fan not running and if it is not running in your unit you will have to replace the fan motor itself. If you have any further questions message me back Thanks Rick

My Kenmore side by side is hot around the door frame. How can I reset or rebot it, if possible. Model #10657943700


Getting warm around the door is OK but getting hot around door indicates a restriction of the airflow below your refrigerator. The compressor produces hot Freon that is pumped out the discharge side of compressor. On many refrigerators the gas goes to the yoder Condenser Loop first and then cooled by the condenser fan motor before going to the freezer section as a liquid.

Anything restricting that airflow will cause the yoder loop to get hotter. Example a defective condenser fan, dusty conditions below refrigerator or room temperatures way above normal for a kitchen or room inside your home. Insure fan stays on when compressor runs because a defective condenser fan does not always stop when defective. Most refrigerators work best with room temperatures in mid 70's to middle 80's. In this case rebooting may not change much but unplugging for 10 minutes and then replugging the power is the same as rebooting. Making sure that airflow is good, fan's stay on with compressor and room temperatures stay in the normal range. If helpful please rate this solution, Thanks Sea Breeze

Kenmore elite refrigerator, very hot between doors


Mine was doing the same thing. I pulled the cardboard cover off the back near the bottom and found the fan was not turning and lots of dust buildup. I unplugged it and vacuumed it out and spun the fan by hand and plugged it back in. The fan started and the temp between doors went down. I may have to replace the fan soon.

Outside middle devider hot


It should be warm but not hot. If it is too hot then either the condensor coils underneath are too dirty or the condensor fan motor has failed.
