Is the compressor really hot? If so you are low on frion.

    Check to see if your evaporator fan is running behind the freezer wall.

    Check to see if the evaporator coils in the back (where you vacumed) They should be really hot. You shouldnt be able to hold on to them. Just touch. This is a different sign of low freon. If they are ok. let me know and we will go from there. It could be an electronic problem depending on how new it is.

Sounds like you're low on gas...assuming that the condenser coils are clean.

Panel between fridge and freezer hot on Kenmore fridge


It is normal for that panel to get warm while the fridge is running. There is a hot gas tube from the compressor running through it to prevent frost built up. If it's feeling a little too hot try cleaning the coils under the fridge. This will allow the gasses to cool a little more efficiently thus allowing the fridge to cool quicker.

Not cooling


Hi Thanks For The Question. The Problem You Are Having Is With The Defrost Thermostat. Replace It that's What Caused The Ice Build Up. A Fridge Will Take 24 Hrs To Work Properly. Also Clean The Coils AT The Back. Thanks The Appliance Doc
