Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
I own a Kenmore side by side refrigerator freezer model # 106.52284202.
I returned home after two days to find my freezer door frozen shut at the bottom. I used a hair dryer to melt the ice at the bottom of the door. When the door finally opened I discovered that the ice in the icemaker storage bucket (in the top of the freezer compartment) had melted and dripped down to the bottom of the freezer compartment where it refroze. I cleaned out the freezer compartment and removed the panel cover from the freezer cooling coil in the back. The coils were frozen over with ice. I used a hairdryer to remove the ice and clean the coils. I plugged the power cord back in and let it run for several hours. I discovered that the fan that draws the air through the cooling coils was not turning on. The bottom shelves of the freezer and refrigerator were cold but the upper shelves were not. Without the fan drawing the cold air from the cooling coils the temperature inside the freezer and refrigerator is not distributed evenly. Is there a method to troubleshoot the problem to determine which component needs to be replaced? There appears to be four possibilities. The Fan Motor (part # 4389147)($40), the Thermostat Assembly (part # 2198202)($60), the Bi-Metal Defrost control (part # 2321799)($20) or the Adaptive Defrost Control Unit (Part # 2303822)($60). I would appreciate any help/suggestions that you might have.
Good then go ahead and ohm out the sensor and the relays to see if the resistance is close to the normat. 70 degrees is roughly 1000 ohms. relay you are lookling for continuity or open. then you can also ohm the fan motor too. let me know what you find;.that will determin whts bad and whats good
