Kenmore top freezer fridge does not cool but freezer works

I have a Kenmore top freezer about 8 years old. the compressor was make loud noises when it stopped and I figured the unit would soon quit all together. The compressor stopped making noises and does not seem to come on anymore, but the fan runs constantly and ther is a gentle hum. The freezer still works while the fridge does not cool. Do I need to replace the compressor or is ther another fix?

Turned refrigerator off for 8 hours, let the frost melt and the fan in the freezer worked again. The compressor now only has a soft clunk when it goes off.

Kenmore top freezer, Refrierator shuts off with loud clunk.


It sounds like you may have a compressor that is working hard against high pressure due to a dirty condenser or a condenser fan not running or blocked. If all is well otherwise, the mounting springs inside the compressor may have broken or are weak. The only fix then is a new compressor.

REFRIGERATOR IS MAKING A BUZZING SOUND, not cooling


You have one of two problems going on. Your fan is spinning at hitting the sides. Or your compressor is shot which seems to be more the problem and even though it is cold the humming sound is a warning for you that the compressor is shot and it is more affordable to replace the fridge then the compressor. Sometimes compressor can cost more then the fridge.

Clicking Fridge


I used to have a whirlpool fridge, they are the ones who make kenmore too. It used to make a loud thud noise. It was the compressor turning off. sometimes it was loud enough to wake me up at night. It did this for years and I never had any problems with it. when I purchased a larger fridge I sold it to a friend and its still working today. If you can tolerate the noise I wouldn't worry about it unless it starts giving you trouble.
