Question about Nor-Lake Refrigerators

1 Answer

Kenmore refridgerator model # 795-75004400. Neither the fridge, nor the freezer are properly cooling. It was unplugged in storage for a few years. When I plug it in I can hear it (the fan, I presume),

It was unplugged in storage for a few years. When I plug it in I can hear it (the fan, I presume), but again, it isn't cooling even when on the highest cooling setting for both. I am a new homeowner, and am also new to troubleshooting household appliances, but I am somewhat mechanically inclined. Any advice? The the coolant just need to be recharged? Is that something I can do or do I need to have a licensed professional?

SOURCE: Burned electrical smell from the freezer compartment

I would check the defrost thermostat usually a button type switch with 2 wires on it mounted to the freezer coil. Size depends on type ; 1 type is about quarter size, 1 is about dime size, and electronic sensor (not had one burn out but the board could smell like your description but I believe these are not in the freezer section).

I have had these cook out and smell up the freezer section before. And if they go out guess what it wont defrost either. If your fan motor goes out it might smell and wont cool all over but the frost should be minimal.


Also a bad defrost heater could make a smelly situation it is usually a black rod or aluminum colored and the rubber ends can burn and make a smell.
If you find its the heater, I would replace the defrost thermostat as well. Its suppose to cut off the heater before it gets too hot.

If this helps you find your problem please rate me as high as possible if not please post back with more information as to what you did find. Thanks for using fix ya and good luck.

SOURCE: Freezer or fridge stopped cooling. Can not hear compressor kick on

If the compresor is trying to start and it won't you 'll heard a click and the compresor will be very hot ,that means that the relay is bad or the compresor is stuck or burned and needs to be replaced, but first before replacing the compresor try with the relay (no more than $20).But if the lights and fan inside the fridge work and the compresor won't start and is not hot ,the problem is in the cold con trol (you can put a jumper wire between the two wires to the cold control and if the compresor starts thats your problem) after all this if still the compresor won't start could be that the timer is stock in the defrost position.

SOURCE: the top freezer cools like a fridge, the bottom fridge is warm

The fluxating temps bottom to top and top to bottom freezing are a result of the "air damper and baffle assy" not functioning properly. I would attempt fo make my case with LG that this started while the unit was under full warranty and persists today.

Refridgerator not cooling


That fan at the top has to remain on during cooling or you get the temps. you describe. To check this you need a voltage meter. Got to get to the fan and have to check if there is voltage 120v when it shuts off. If there is still voltage present when it shuts off then change the fan, if no volts when it shuts off then change the timer. need complete model cause this one may have an adapative timer.. i fixed one with the same problem last year.

Kenmore side by side not cooling


First off how far did it get leaned when moved and second it might just need to be cleaned.
If you laid it down when it was moved it should have been left unplugged for 12 hrs before plugging in because the refridgerant used is also a lubricant and it needs time to settle.
As far as cleaning it you will need to take off the back panel and use a vac to clean out the dust.There is also a kickplate on the front that needs to come off and clean the cooling grates that are under there.If you have a dryer brush it works great for cleaning the grates.You can get between them with it.
Unplug it before you do any of this.

Refrigerator not cool, freezer ok


Either the freezer continues to freeze up (most likely due to low refrigerant, due to a leak), or there is an obstruction between the freezer and the refrigerator (refrigerators get their cooling from the freezer).

Given that it works after you defrost it, I'm going with low gas. Call a professional to see if the leak can be fixed. If the unit is more than 10 years old, just get a new one.

It sounds like your defrost cycle has stopped working. unplug your fridge for 24 hours and let it defrost. plug it back after 24 hour and if it starts to cool in the fridge part at about 40 degrees F. you will have to replace one of three parts the Defrost Timer, Defrost Themo or Defrost Element. I hope this helps you.
