Kenmore freezer overload relay went out so i fixed it for about two days . why would it be blowing the overload relay, bad compressor maybe ??

is the relay side sensitive? installed upright? what's starting amps on compressor? verify all connections tight, obviously replace start kit first but possibly compressor going bad.

check your defrost drain line. can be located in freezer section. also if you have a filter at the bottom make sure the housing is not cracked. If your frig is cooling then the coil is going to be doings its job

Mine is a Kenmore Coldspot. model #52559100 Serial #SL4336967. The entire door frames are extremely hot. It is coldish overall, but nothing is freezing. Is the cooling fan usually what needs fixed?

Check condenser fan, located next to compressor - is it running? If not - replace! Also check condenser coils - are they covered with lots of lint, dust and etc? If so, clean.
If the above mentioned do not solve your problem - unplug fridge, call a service technician.

Have Kenmore 106.8607913, top freezer. Not cold enough. All fans working. Cleaned bottom coils. Not ice bound. Compressor clicks on, then off about 1 or 2 seconds later. Compressor or thermostat,...

If the fans continue to run when the compressor kicks off the thermostat is functioning normal.

The problem could either be the compressor itself or more likely the start device (relay) that controls the compressor, it is an easy component to replace and mounts directly to the compressor.

The part number for the relay is 989662

If the relay is good and compressor is bad, you would be looking at about $500.00 to repair

Both the ice dispenser and the water dispenser quit at the same time on my kenmore 52559100 refrigerator. The icemaker still functions. Possible solutions? Thanks.

Check the wiring plug where the wires connect from the fridge and the door. Sounds like you may have a bad connection or it has come unplugged.

Kenmore frig freezer will go to 20 degrees and stay there

sounds like either the compressor is out or the relay that starts the compressor is out. I would try replacing the relay/overload on the compressor and hope for the best. if you have a continuity tester then check from each of the 3 posts sticking out of the side of the compressor that the relay/overload push on to fo one of the copper pipes coming off the continuity is good if you get continuity then the compressor is shorted and ruined

Replacing a relay switch on a Kenmore Side by Side

The start run relay kicks the compressor on. If your compressor is running this is not your problem.
There are a number of things that can cause a fridge not to cool. A bad defrost system.. Check to see if you have ice build up in the freezer, or a lot of frost. Also a bad compressor. The relay switch sits on the compressor at the back of the fridge. If you put a new relay on and it won't start the compressor you have a bad compressor. Most compressors are warrantied through the manufacturer for at least 5 years. So if it's that call the manufacturer for replacement.

Compressor will not run

mostly the relay called a PTC relay. If you have a ohm meter you can ohm out the compressor just to make sure but pretty sure the relay. ken
