Hi
What's the frost pattern of the Evaporator Coils look like ?  evenly frosted ?  

How long does the Compressor run ?  forever ?    or 1 hour ON, 1 hour OFF ?

Can you please be more specific on this?..if the freezer is continuously running, then there might be a problem with the condenser coils. have you tried changing the temperature control?..does it make the difference in the temperature of the refrigerator (excluding the freezer)?

    if while changing the temperature setting doesnt make a change, then there might be a problem with the temperature controls too.will wait for your comments.

I am sure there is a relay that the thermostat controls, it is most likely stuck closed, consult a appliance repair about the part and the location.

Your Kenmore freezer is made by Gibson (Frigidaire) Your model number for your freezer is 253.24092102 I believe the problem is a defective 216979700 Main Control Board Look over the 216979700 Main Control Board for signs of burn marks or heat damage. Sometimes you can see damage but not always.I need you to do a few things when you see the freezer defrosting like this. Feel the top of the compressor and see if it is becoming extreemly hot while it stops freezing and begins to melt the ice in the freezer. Here is a photo of the=> 25324092102-Compressor-Components Should your freezer compressor location number 29 in that photo be getting hot it could be a defective 216649315 Relay and Overload Kit location number 30 in that photo is the 216649315 Relay and Overload Kit Location number 55 in that photo is the 5304464438 Run Capacitor If the motherboard looks OK but the compressor is getting hot and trying to start and stop (short cycling) I would begin by first changing the 216649315 Relay and Overload Kit and the 5304464438 Run Capacitor If you could respond by answering my post I believe I will be able to help you solve this. I am here should you respond, Thanks Sea Breeze

I have a full size upright kenmore freezer Model # 253 9203281 S1061 55531 06-91.


You need to replace the defrost thermostat on the unit. You will need to remove the shelves and then the back wall to gain access to it. Here is the part to order.

Its not getting cold


MAKE SURE THE FANS ARE RUNNING FREEZER AND COMPRESSOR, THEN CHECK THE BACK WALL OF THE FREEZER IF ITS FROSTED UP YOU HAVE A DEFROST ISSUE. IF THE COMPRESSOR AND FANS ARE WORKING AND NO FROST IN THE FREEZER THATS NOT A GOOD THING..

My refrigerator freezer is at 0 degrees. refrigerator is at 48 degrees. emptied it, cleaned underneath and it isn't cooling down. Kenmore 253-44383407. Isn't there just one compressor? fan at rear of...

Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

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.

Have 8550510 Kenmore Refrig that stopped running.


Sounds like the thermostat is bad . Without the complete model number , including the first 3 numbers , such as 110. , 106. , 253. etc , I can't tell you how to access it . If you can get access on your own , jump the 2 wires connected to the thermostat , and see if the compressor cuts on . If so , replace the thermostat .

Refrigerator runs very loudly


If sound is coming from freezer it is probalbly the evaporator fan. Either the fan is bad or the fanblade is making contact with something.

The motor on the Kenmore refrigerator is running continuously. How do I stop it? I just cleaned out the dust from the coils underneath and replaced the kick-plate at the bottom


Hi: I've dealt with Kenmore for 30 years. Unfortunately the new model numbers don't reveal the age. I must assume it's a newer model. I'm not disputing what you said about it running all the time, but please read on. Oddly enough the new energy efficient referigators run 70 to 80% of the time. They use a smaller compressor without the big amperage start-up. The best I can describe them is that they freewheel alot. The 106......of your model number means it was built by Whirlpool. A very quite and energy efficent refrigerator. If your power bill is high get a meter from your power company, most have them. Just to double check the power consumption. Good luck Jeff
