Depending on how old this unit is, it may just need 24 hours to get cold again after it can breathe again. you need to keep the coil clean at least once a year.
if it doesnt start cooling by itself after cleaning, then you might have a burnt out comrpessor relay. it happens alot after the coils are plugged. if it makes a buzzing noise then a click, you have a bad relay. it is easy to replace by taking off the rear lower panel and removing the relay from the compressor and getting a new relay kit.

I have a Kenmore model # 596:75523400. Both the refrige and freezer is no longer cold. I can hear the fan but it's warm inside. Would cleaning the coils in the back help or is it really dead?

My refrigerator and freezer are no longer cold. It must have happened over night. It sounds like it is running but there is no cold air coming from the vents. Any suggestions?

Freezer not cold, but fridge is


Condenser coil is probably dirty, or the fan isn't running. If the coil is under the refrigerator, it will probably be coated in dust like a blanket. Use a vacuum cleaner with a straight pipe extension wand. I've also seen a dead mouse stuck in a condenser fan blade.

Kenmore Coldspot side by side fridge/freezer no longer cold.


The black thing is the compressor. It should run warm but not hot. This usually indicates it's time to clean the condenser coils under the refrigerator. Try using a long soft brush and your vacuum cleaner.

Sub Zero Freezer Vacuum


If your freezer temps are ok, it may just be that your gasket is getting older and it becomes more porus as it ages. The vacume sound doesnt really mean alot except that the difference in the room temp and the cold of the freezer create this vacume.
