7 year old refridgerator not getting cold enough. Thawing in freezer. Should the condenser be hot/warm to the touch? Is there a re-set?


Hello,

The condersor coil will be very warm to hot..not so much so it will burn you, yet very warm..the things that will make it very overly warm is if its clogged with dust or the condenser fan motor isnt running all the time the compressor is on. But it will normally be warm all the time the compressor is running..that heat is whats being removed from inside (the way refrigs. work is they remove the heat so when the heat is gone only cold is left)

Kenmore Refridgerator/Freezer does not work.


check your damper vent door located between the fridge and freezer and make sure its opening up to let cold air into the fridge,also check the evaporator fan motor and make sure its operating to blow the air around the inside of the unit

Kenmore refridgerator not blowing cold air.


You need to replace the overload/relay . This is the piece plugged onto the side of the compressor , with 2 or 3 wires going to it . It is easily replaceable . Take your model number with you when you get the part kit , so you get the correct replacement . DO NOT use a 3 in 1 hard start . This item is used by inexperienced technicians , and will only last a short time . Get what is called for , for your refrig .

Side by side refridgerator is running but not cold!


Need the exact model number to pull your model and see what it has and not have. I do think the defrost timer or the defrost board is not working properly. Your refrigerator should defrost every 8 to 10 hours. Look on bottom frame behind the fresh food section door near floor and try to find the model number. for example 261.128965 wi9th that number being correct or close I will be able to see what you have and help you better, Let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Refridgerator has power but does not get cold


Can you tell me if you hear the compressor running under the refrigerator? Is fan running beneath the refrigerator? Need to get the exact Kenmore model number found when you open the fresh food section. Let me know, Sea Breeze

Fridge does not stay cold


If the compressor is running continually, could be short of gas , or a compressor problem, ie not pumping properly,make sure it has plenty of ventilation

Freezer is not freezing and refridgerator is not cold enough


have the freon checked for leaks, also check to make sure the compressor is coming on. If it comes on and is warm, boost freon. If the unit is not coming on properly, check the capasitors and compressor

Refridgerator freezing food


dm, I'm not sure if the thermostat is mechanical or electronic. Assuming mechanical...and I do...turn it to the lowest number...does it turn off? If this works properly, the problem is likely not the control. Does the compressor turn off at any time? If not after an hour or so of operation, the stat could be defective. That's my first guess. Oh, have you made sure that you don't have the ducts in the freezer blocked? The would deflect too much cold air to the fridge section.

Next, defrost the unit and clean the condenser coils. This will help the unit work properly. Then, wait awhile with the unit off. Meanwhile, access the compressor in the rear of the unit. Find the largest pipe coming out of the compressor. Turn the unit on. The largest pipe should frost and then, in about 5 minutes or so...either cause condensation or dry out. If neither happens and the line is either not COLD to the touch or frosty, you're low on gas. If the unit is less than 5 years old, you may get warranty coverage on the sealed unit from the mfgr. Believe it or not, too little gas will cause freezing in some cases!
