Hello and welcome,
if it's old and sat off and not used for a year. Then there may be a tiny crack in a seal that allowed the freon to leak out over time. Or it may not be tiny!
If the repair cost half the price of a new unit it is not worth repairing. if the unit is ten years old or more then a new one will be MUCH cheaper!!

Pull the fridge out and remove the bottem panel .find the compressor it is a black round unit.listen to see if the compressor is running should make a hummming sound if you put your ear by it.If it is not running check the starter relay. TO check it unplug fridge remove relay it is located on the side of the compressor with 2 or 3 wires running to it. remove it and shake it if it rattles or if there are burnt spots on it it needs to be replaced.Hope this helps. if so give us a4 thumbs up.THANKS

I have a kenmore s x s refridge and the freezer is cool by everthing is thawing out. I hear a clicking noise so I took the back cover off and it seems to be coming from the compressor.


the clicking noise may be coming from the start and oveer load relay on the compressor shut the unit down until the compressor is cool replace the over load and start relay on the compressor.

if you have a clamp type power metercheck the current draw on the compressor it should be between 1.2-1.6 amps during a running load.

My light stayed on and melted the fixture. What would have caused this? I noticed that it is a problem with Sears Model 795.7757960


Hi, faulty or broken door (light) switch, whenever you shut ref. door light switches off, locate door switch and press/release (check) , if your light switch are o/k, always make sure ref. door are closed all the way, just a little space in door,(during night time) could keep light on. that could cause your fixture cover to melt. good luck.

Refrigerator and freezer are not cool


Hi,

if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

thanks,

Freezer not working


Either relay is bad on compressor or comp is bad. Comp may be under mfr wty; relay is not. Only way to tell is to buy new relay and see if comp starts.

Kenmore 596.755 23400 problem with freezer


You can try to replace the relay and overload but on this model usually the compressors go bad. Call sears to check the warranty. The compressor should have a five year warranty.
