Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

Open Question

Kenmore refrigerator Sold my Kenmore refrigerator and they are saying it does not work at all. First they told me the refrigerator works and not the freezer. it is a side by side model 41514100 manufacturer date of 07/02 full load 6.5 amp. They are saying it is the compressor. They cleaned it underneath. It worked fine when it left my house. Any suggestions on what it might be other than that?

Sounds like it has a defrost problem.  Check for thick frost buildup on the back bottom panel in the freezer first and let me know what you find so I can steer you in the right direction.  Also, give me the entire model # from the sticker inside fridge.

If you are sure the fan in the freezer is running and you don't feel any air flow out of the top middle vent inside the fridge section, then the damper motor must be bad. The damper motor is behind that vent cover inside the fridge section.

Relay on the compressor bad.

Try unpluging for 30 - 45 min until the compressor has cooled down then plug it back in. If it doesn't start replace the relay. Most service techs carry a universal relay and wiil put the relay on, if it starts, your good to go, if not, then the compressor is bad.

You have a bad compressor relay. to check it you will need a voltage meter. Remove the rear cover and you will see the compressor remove the relay held on by a wire. If the relay sounds like a maraca replace it with part #8201769. If is donesn't sound like somethings broken inside it check for continuity on all 3 compressor terminals ( all terminals should read closed ) now this can go to ways if the terminals read good and the relay is good then the compressor is lock rotor and has to be replaced. Most cases it's the relay Good luck hope this helps

Kenmore fridge not working, ice cubes wet, freezer frosting up


You may need a new defrost module. The coils ice up when it is not working. This makes the fridge and freezer only a little cold. About 150 to 250 bucks to fix if you call a service person. Under a hundred for the part.

Kenmore elite refrigerator, model # 59676534500


I went ahead and signed up for Sears' service warranty since I knew I had to get someone to come out.  IT costs $200/yr.  They say it covers everything, but when the technician came out, he told me that it just covers $500 per visit.  He said that a new motherboard and the labor alone was going to make it $498.  Anyway,   he had ordered a new motherboard. Apparently the motherboard wasn't working.  It is located in the back bottom left side of the refrigerator behind the panel.  There is a compartment on the lefthand side that slides out and houses the motherboard.  He put that in and also had to fix the fan that is in the back of the freezer.  That fan is the one that sends cool air up to the refrigerator part. When I had looked at the fan before the repair man came, it was not moving at all.  So at least take a look at the fan in the freezer.  Just take out the freezer drawers, and the fan is located in the top center of the freezer behind the compartment cover.  Maybe that's the problem with your refrigerator, the fan.  Hope that's all it is. Good luck!

Kenmore


problem has been almost certainly caused by freezer door not being completley closed allowing warm humid air into freezer, (do not say this could not happen because it often does), sollution, turn off defrost overnight, turn on following day, within 24hrs unit will work ok. Regards Adviso

Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator, freezer doesn't work, refrigerator works


Unless specifically made for use in a garage most units won't work properly. The owners manual should say what the temp range for proper operation is (usually 55F is the low range). This is because the refrigerator section doesn't need to be "cooling" to maintain 37F if the temps on the outside are below 55F. These things are made to work in a 70F room and will not work properly if under 55F. Stupid thing thinks it's cold enough so it will never turn on, the refer section will stay cold/cool due to outside temps but since the compressor never runs the freezer will just be the same temp as the refer section (at best). Sorry, but in order for a freezer or refrigerator to work in an unheated space it must have the temp control device controling the freezer section NOT the fresh food section. In other words, that model will not work in a garage unless the temps are above 55F always.
