Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

We purchased a floor model Kenmore Elite Side by Side Refrigerator Model #106.4442*600/106.4443*600 a couple of years ago and stored it in the garage. Our regular refrig has problems and we wait to swap it out. However, now that the Kenmore is plugged in, turned on and set to the correct tempature, it does not get cold at all. What is wrong with it?

Boomdog, the problem with your fridge is the temperature control board (where you adjust temps at in the fridge section). I serviced one of these just this week for the same problem! It's working fine now. They'll need to bring a control board with them to finish this job. The part number for it is #8201659. Be glad you won't have to fork over the cash to buy it, the retail cost is ~$165.00. Unfortunately, all of my vendors tell me this board is a factory backorder item. Maybe Sears will have it, maybe not. Also, after the repair is complete, please connect your computer controlled appliance up to a quality surge suppression/arrestor device. We highly recommend this one... http://catalog.belkin.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Product_Id=124911

SOURCE: Kenmore refrig not making ice and top shelf area in refrig not cold

if you are having tempurature issues make sure the fan in the freezer is operating. it should be on when the compresor is running. this may explain both warm fridge and no ice.

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!

Check for cracks in the water supply tube from the house plumbing valve to the ice maker. Could also be the valve itself.

Turn off valve for a day to diagnose which.

Every couple of days lots of water runs out on the floor.


It sounds like the defrost drain is clogged up. On some models there is a removeable white pull out cup located in the center back wall at the top in the refrigerator section. It is connected to a tube on the back of the refrigertor.If that is blocked water will be in the bottom under the crisper drawers.
