Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

1 Answer

Freezor barely freezing, fridge barely cooling

It may be coincidental but our power was out for 6 days. Not long after it came back I noticed my fridge was not cooling well. Then the freezor wasn't doing so well. It is still producing ice but things in the freezor are not as solid as before (frozen). The fan underneath is running constantly. I took the sheild off from inside freezor and the evaporator was covered in frost. I plugged it back in to see if evap fan ran and it did. I am currently letting it defrost but need help in how to fix the problem. I doubt I'm lucky enough for it to work right just by defrosting it. Thanks in advance for any input.

    It typically stays about 5. I happened to read something about rotating the defrost timer a little clockwise. I did that and am just gonna let it defrost good over night. I guess when I plug it back in, in the morning I'll set it at 5 and the compressor should kick on, correct? I guess if that's right and it doesn't then my compressor is bad? Would the thing stay cool at all if it was bad, though?

    Thanks for the feedback, I welcome any more.

After the electricity came on what setting did you use? I would start out at 4 or 5.When a unit sits too long without running the coolant will settle to the bottom it can be hard on it because it is trying to push it threw the system.After it defrosts all the lines should be clear. From there it could be as simple as the fan in the freezer is slowing down or your compressor is on its way out. Also check the vent from the freezer to the fridge for blockage.

FRS26R4CB0-Freezer not freezing and Fridge not getting Cool


Hi Candi,

I don't know this model but most friges are the same,
Check on the bottom back, there should be a radiator with a small fan
installed.

If the fan is not working this maybe your problem,
It is not colling the gas.


You also may have a gas leak or the gas compressor is not working
or starting to work because of a faulty capcacitor.

Water running from underneath the freezor onto the floor. Water pooling in the bottom of the freezor.

Not cooling at all


Either the compressor has seized or refrigerant gas has all leaked away are the two most likely and expensive reasons!

Dometic refrigerator freezing in bottom


Move your thermistor closer to the center. Your thermistor is attached to the fins on the inside of the fridge. Also turn off the fridge and take the circuit board cover off and make sure that the thermistor cable is plugged in. the cable is a 2 wire terminal will be on upper right or upper left of the circuit board just below the 6 pin connector.There is another possibility but remote. The cooling unit may be getting ready to stop working. Have had many customers tell me that the fridge started freezing up and a few days later quit working completely.
Hope this helps you.
