SOURCE: Bottom mount freezer not getting cold enough

You have a failed component or components in your automatic defrost system. This is why you have excessive frost inside the freezer along the back wall. The timer could be stuck in run mode. The defrost thermostat (bi-metal) could be defective or the defrost heater could be open or shorted.

SOURCE: Sears Kenmore ColdSpot Frostfree Frosting up/Not working

You have a defrost problem. You need to determine which one of the parts is faulty. The defrost timer on that model should be behind the kick plate in the center front underneath. If you turn the little knob by hand you will hear a load click when it gets to the defrost point and the unit should shut off. Check in the bottom of the freezer to listen for water sizzleing or for water running down. If it is the timer is not advancing and needs replaced. If not you will have to take the back off the inside of the freezer to see if it is the heater or the defrost thermostat. Unhook power before taking panel off or replacing any parts.

If there's an ice maker but you don't have water piped to it therefore and it can't work, try pulling the wire arm up that turns off the ice maker. It's down in the freezer, on the upper left freezer area.
I replaced my capacitor on my compressor before I noticed this. It's easy to drag something by it and bump it down.

SOURCE: sudenly stops working everything in freezer thaws

The auto timer in your Fridge is faultly and is not defrosting in the eight hour cycle. There could also be any wire detached from corrosion inside/within the freezer compartment that gives wrong signals to the the thermostat. You will have to remove the inside cover to confirm.check the wires to the heater/ failure of the heater. In case you are not able to do the work have this in mind and look into what the technician responds. take an estimate and move on.Helpful? good day

I had this happen with my fridge when the door was open for awhile when I was cleaning the inside. I did what you did, clean everything behind it. Pay particular attention to the circuit boards, there may be reset buttons in that area. Then unplug the freezer for 10 minutes (make sure it's for a FULL 10 minutes) then plug it back in and try it.

The motor is running, but the ice is melting and everything in my freezer is soft. I've cleaned the coils, unplugged and plugged it back in, but so far have gotten the same results. This refrigerator...


It sounds like your defrost assembly has stopped working, which allowed ice build up (sometimes it is behind the panels and difficult to see.

To verify this without test equipment, disconnect your refrigerator from power, open the freezer door and let it completely defrost for a day. Or you can take the panel off the inside of the freezer and melt the ice with a hair dryer.

You can then plug the refrigerator back in, and if it now freezes, you have a bad defrost assembly. IThe assembly cost about $50-$100 and is not that difficult to change if you are halfway handy.

I have a Kenmore Elite refrigerator model number 59673503201 and there is a terrible fish smell coming from the bottom portion of the appliance where the freezer is. It is not coming from trash, or food...


Please note when you keep fish in freezer once, the smell will be longer even you remove it. O.K. Now solution for your problem- Please unplug power.Keep fridge door open. Take wet cloth dipped in soap water and clean all compartment including freezer . Keep freezer door also opened.Then clean with dry cloth. Spray room spray in your room not into the fridge. And allow 5 hrs to circulate fresh air to pass thr' your fridge and then close fridge and freezer doors. Plug fridge and run for one hour on empty. After one hour store items in fridge and/or freezer.
Keep all food items in closed style which will avoid odor spreading and also be a hygienic. Thanks.

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.

Kenmore elite MOD.596.76533500


Hi, If the freezer is cold............ I would suspect the defrost timer. Remove everything and place in coolers or another refrigerator. Unplug the refrigerator. With doors open let it sit for aprox 6 hrs. A fan blowing into the freezer section will help. Plug back in and see if it works good again. The fans may be caked in ice and should run again but they may have burned up and need replaced. If it works good for a couple of days and problem returns, Replace the defrost timer. Hope this helps. kstfas
