Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

Won't stay cold for long

Refrigerator or freezer do not want to stay cold for long. It will stay cold for a while, makes ice then it all melts. Could this be a compressor or freon?
Thanks B

IF your compressor is not pumping correctly that would be your problem. If it where the freon you would not have any cool cause it would leak out and you would get alot of warm air. this sounds like the compressor is pumping but not recirculating

Freezer stays cool but bottom stays warm.


I agree with your analysis, and recommend that you replace that fan between the two sections.

Ice maker will not make ice Model number


  • When it Won't Make Ice
    • 1 Get a thermometer and see how cold it is in there. If your freezer is fewer than 17 degrees F, it won't make ice. The freezer temperature setting may be too high or the thermometer is broken and not calibrated correctly. If adjusting the temperature fails to work, call a Kenmore technician.
    • 2 Determine if your water fill spout in the freezer is plugged with ice. If so, no new ice can be made. Try clearing it out or melting the ice by running a hair dryer on it for a few minutes.
    • 3 Turn your refrigerator around to look at the back side to see if water is getting to the water inlet valve behind the fridge. If the water is not properly connected, there's no water to make ice.
    • 4 Use an ohm meter to test for coil continuity. If the ohm meter shows there is no continuity, then you will need to replace the water inlet valve.
  • Hope this tips will help you.

    Have a nice day! : )

    Not cooling


    There are many things that can go wrong with a Kenmore refrigerator ice maker. Your ice maker may be leaking. It may not make any ice at all, or the ice that comes out smells or has an odd appearance. The problem may have an easy solution, or it may require a technician's expertise. The troubleshooting tips in this article will minimally make you aware of what is likely the source of the problem. You may be able to fix the problem yourself and save a bundle.

    When it Won't Make Ice
    1. Get a thermometer and see how cold it is in there. If your freezer is fewer than 17 degrees F, it won't make ice. The freezer temperature setting may be too high or the thermometer is broken and not calibrated correctly. If adjusting the temperature fails to work, call a Kenmore technician.
    2. Determine if your water fill spout in the freezer is plugged with ice. If so, no new ice can be made. Try clearing it out or melting the ice by running a hair dryer on it for a few minutes.
    3. Turn your refrigerator around to look at the back side to see if water is getting to the water inlet valve behind the fridge. If the water is not properly connected, there's no water to make ice.
    4. Use an ohm meter to test for coil continuity. If the ohm meter shows there is no continuity, then you will need to replace the water inlet valve.

    The question is too short so i guess that your refrigerator maybe won't make ice & reason for not cooling so i gave this tip.

    Have a good day. : )

    My bottom refrigerator is not cold. The freezer is okay.


    Check to make sure the fan in the freezer compartment is working and not blocked. This delivers the cold air to the refrigerator. The fan should run every time the freezer calls for cold.

    Ice on the bottom of freezer


    Sounds like your freezer drain is blocked. first, turn the temperature controller up a little bit, maybe one or two stops, then wait 24 hours to see if the ice melts at all. If it starts to go away, then you may need to toss a few towels on the floor next to the freezer because 6 inches of ice melt is gonna make a mess.

    After you get that sorted out, turn the temp down one click to make sure that everything is staying cold, and that the ice is not reforming.

    good Luck!
