Question about Kenmore 64522 Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Fridge exposed to cold temps.

Sorry for the repeat question, but I typed my e-mail address wrong. I had the fridge in my garage. I was exposed to sub-zero temperatures. It was exposed to the freezing temps for about 10 days. I move the fridge into the house. I pluged it in the fridge will not run. Is there a reset button? Do I need to call a service person?

Thanks,

No there is no reset button. It could be the internal fan has gone bad or the compressor is shot. Unless you have bumped any lines and caused a freon leak.

Freezer temp is -4 and refrig is 38. Not sure if these are correct settings but water in freig bladder keeps freezing and can't get water. Warmed bladder twice to get water to come out. If freezer temp...


Sorry if you don't like this solution, it does not make it work correctly. But my water works all the time now.
We too had the water dispensor stopping due to freezing of water in the storage tank. A blow dryer and about 10 minutes later we could get it working again.
We tried different fridge temp settings , and according to a thermometer placed inside the fridge in various locations we are getting the fridge temps we want, so it is not runing too cold.
I tried insulating the storage tank and the lines, this did not work.
I removed the tank and just connected the two lines, this still did not work.
I finally just pulled the lines out of the fridge completely and connected them underneath the fridge so water runs from the valve at back straight to door. The plastic panel on bottom was a great place to store the lines. I drilled a hole to reroute the door line to this area . Line runs behind lower plastic cover on front . The water does not get cold, but it never stops flowing, this was more important to us. I did consider rerouting both lines to the top shelf and putting the storage tank back in to get colder water, but no one minds the way it works so I probably will not do this. I would have run them up the back to avoid the inside lower area of the fridge. In the long run I will avoid this brand and avoid "twin-cooling" completely. All my neighbors and friends who bought this type all had to throw them away as they were too dofficult and expensive to keep running.

Put in garage now unit will not keep cold or freeze.


Since refrigerators were designed to run in your 72° kitchen, when you put a fridge outside, where its colder than normal operating REFRIGERATOR temperatures, i.e. 35-40°F, because that ambient temp is colder than fridge temp, the thermostat in the fridge section reads it as normal temperature, and does not turn unit on. it does not read what the freezer temp is. You have a couple of choices: bring the unit inside, heat your garage, or only use it for pop and beer in the summer. You can reply here or send me a question from my website: www.FixMyFridge.net

I have a Kenmore bottom freezer fridge. Can't find the manual. Is 7 the coldest setting or 1? We keep the fridge in our garage and with the artic temps we are having we need to adjust it.


most refr's dont so well when the ambiant temps fall below 50 degrees. you should not need to adjust the controls must past the "midpoint" usually 4. but 7 is the coldest setting.
the best thing you can do is check what the actual temps are in your garage and if you can warm it up to above 50, then the unit should run properly again.
if the ambiant temps are too cold, the freezer wont be cold enough and the refr section will freeze things.

New Fridge/Freezer placed in Garage,when ambient temp falls freezer stops working


You do not say what type of Fridge/Freezer it is. Some types will not work in cold ambient temperatures, ie unheated garages.

Check the user instructions, if it does not say anything about this, get onto the service department for advice.

I have a fridge freezer in the garage will not freez cuold it be the anbeant temp too low


no. temp is determined by the temp inside the fridge. if its on and running but not cooling its probably low on gas . if its not cooling enough and off its probably the stat. i doubt the garage gets cold enough to be a factor at all. good luck

Refrigerator in garage


Yes it is very possible that exactly what you are describing can be happening. Also try a thermometer frozen in a cup of water to get more accurate temps. Also 33 in the fridge is very normal for the cold control set on max and the heater installed. Let me know the temps in the frz with the thermometer sensing product temp not air temp which fluctuates often.

Frigidaire Freezer Runs Warm in Cold Weather


hi there the problem you have is that the temp in the garage is to low, the fridge part of your fridge freezer has priority and will only activate the compressor when req'd ie. in cold weather the fridge may not need to switch on the compressor for days at a time this is when the freezer will defrost.
All you can try doing is having some very low heating in your garage in the cold weather

hope this is of help.
