It appears your main controller has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

Kenmore coldspot refrigerator 71192100 not cooling or freezing. Fan is running.


This is a common problem with refrigerators. The first thing that you want to check is the relay and overload on your compressor. I know this blog is about an LG refrigerator but it will be the exact same way on your Kenmore.

Lg Refrigerator compressor comes on for about 5 seconds

Kenmore elite coldspot model 106.74219400 freezes in the fridge never gets above 5 or 10 degrees and it never shuts off.


there is a flap in the refrigerator side usually near or behind the light bulb the freezer side is thermostatically controlled with the compressor being controlled. On the refrigerator side the cold air comes from the freezer side. when this flap is open the refrigerator will cool continuously, Check the flap or the duct assembly
here is an illustration of the part

Not cooling, compressor clicks on then few seconds later clicks off


either locked rotor on compressor (expensive to repair) or more likely failed start device for the compressor. Can't tell the part number w/o the complete model#

Fridge will not cool or freez


if there is a buzz or a click everytime the unit attempts to come on check the compressor or relay on the compressor(check these two parts reguardless, but these sounds usually indicate one of these two)

a hum usually indicates a seized compressor

also clean your coils, try unplugging it and plugging it back in 15 minutes later( or turning off breaker if cant reach plug), this sometimes works it can reset, but normally dont, cant hurt to try tho

Kenmore Elite refrigerator stops cooling - Relay keeps cycling


the relay on the compressor is most likely the culprit part# 8201786 you can buy it at the local sears parts and repair center it is very easy to replace it. your refrig compartment will start warming up soon. to prevent damage to your compressor probably a good idea to unplug the refrig until you get the part replaced..
