Question about Kenmore 50522 / 50524 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Refrigerator is warm (no air blowing). Freezer seems to be OK

The refrigerator is not getting any air - there is no air blowing from the vents. The freezer seems to be fine, it is cold. the unit is about 13 years old. Is there any filters or coils to clean in the back of the unit? I cleaned underneath the unit last night (LOTS of dust etc...)

Only the freezer side is working


I don't think the darkness is related to the fridge not being cool. The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp
OR
..
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Refrigerator not getting any air, (it is warm), freezer seems ok


so you mean the vents in the refer/frezer sections? yes ok there is a fan in the frezer section that moves the air thru out the box.its called the evaporator fan.you should hear a vissssss sound when you open the doors.some boxes you have to push the door switch closed with finger because fan goes off win door open.test fan with volt meter,should get 110 volts[may have to push that door switch in when testing]if voltage and not turning get new fan.hope that helps God bless ,tom
