Question about Kenmore 24.8 cu. ft. TRIO Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Kenmore Trio Freezer section makes snow in freezer compartment.

Model 596.(p) 75503- "Snow#=" is coming out of the blower in the back of the freezer compartment. What can we do ourselves to stop that problem or must we call a service man. We are still under the 5 year warranty for the refrigeration system but that is probably not what is involved. Help please!

If the freezer is cold the compressor is Ok. Now if its a two door fridge . Open both the doors while the fridge is On. Press the lower door switch ( the lower light should turn off and you should hear the fan humming sound come on ). While holding the door switch pressed close the freezer door, you should see cold air come out of the slits in the back of the lower compartment. If not icicles have blocked the passages due to the non working of the heating coil.The heating cycle is controlled by the timer switch located near the compressor at the back. Unplug the fridge and remove the timer switch.Note the color of the wires and mark on the old switch. Replace and it will work.Only frost free fridges have heating cycle.

The cold air passage in a modern fridge is made out of thermocole . It will take you more than 24 hours of defrosting to remove the ice. I had to use a hair dryer to melt the ice even after 30 hours. Thermocole is a fantastic insulator.If you want to avoid melting the insulator blow air into the vent from the refrigerator compartment using a vacuum cleaner in blower mode ( reverse mode ). After a few minutes of blowing,hot air will come from the vacuum cleaner which should do the trick

I have a kenmore refridgerator side by side. The freezer is beginning to have snow buildup (it is a self defrost) the refridgerator side is not cold


That snow is the condensate build up on the evaporator coils behind the rear panel of your freezer. Normally the freezer will go into defrost about every 10 hours and this snow will melt and drain out the defrost condensate line below the evaporator and go to a pan under your refrigerator and return back to the air inside your home. I believe your freezer is missing the defrost cycle either because the controls for the defrost are defective or the defrost heater and defrost thermostat is defective. I would be watching for an increase in refrigerator temperatures soon, due to loss of defrost. We will need to unplug and examine the evaporator coils behind the rear wall of the freezer. If frozen or covered with snow then defrost with a hair dryer and lets check the defrost heater and all its related components. Could you find a model number like 321.256489 for example then I can find the parts to look for. Sea Breeze

Freezer works but refridgerator does not . light works and coil fan woks


Since you did not mention the manufacturer breand, or if it is a top freezer/ bottom food section, or if it's a sxs- I can only give you some general diagnosis:

Top freezer model and sxs
1. Are your controls in the proper setting?
1. Check to see if there is any "snow formation" on the evaporator cover. If yes, then you most likely have a defrost issue

2. Is defrost drain clogged ( top freezer model). If defrost drain is clogged then water can "spew" over into air diffuser and cause an airflow issue

3. Make surer you are getting air flow into the food section i.e. the fan in the freezer blows the freezer air into the food section. You might havve an air difuuser that is not opening

Check for snow on the back wall of the freezer compartment, Air to cool the refrigerator is supplied from the freezer section. If the coil is frozen over the air circulation becomes retarded and the refrigerator suffers. Snow on the back wall indicates a defrost problem.

Defrost system problem will be indicated by frost (snow) on back wall or cooling coil is located in the freezer compartment. Check freezer control setting. If it is set to cold for the freezer it reduces cold air to the refrigerator section.
