Question about Kenmore 53642 / 53644 Side by Side Refrigerator
My Kenmore Model 51564103 refrigerator is 5 years old. It stopped cooling in freezer and refrigerator today. There is a clicking sound coming from the bottom front of the freezer section, near the floor. The coils are clean.
Possibly a defrost circuit problem -
1) Bad defrost thermostat
2) Bad defrost heater
3) Bad defrost timer
4) Failed evaporator fan motor.
Look for frost accumulated inside the louvers at the back panel, top and bottom. If you see it, remove food from freezer and put in ice chest. Take out shelves, get hair dryer and warm the backside of the freezer, directing air down the louvers. Then leave to sit for 4-6 hours with the freezer door open. Put towels in the bottom of the freezer to catch any melted ice.
After period of time, plug unit back in and power the unit back up. Once you know it's cooling, empty ice chests back into freezer.
If there is a problem in any of the above components, then it will show up in 3-4 weeks witht he same problem again.
