Question about Kenmore 53642 / 53644 Side by Side Refrigerator
How long have you let the unit run? Sometimes if you leaned it back too far you need time for the oil in the compressor to recess..to go back into the compressor. It normally takes a refrigerator 24 hrs. to cool but also up to 72 hrs. if after three days of continous run and not cool at all then you have a restriction in the system, in this case oil in the lines or a stopped up liquid line dryer. It's a filter for moisture and impurities in the closed system. Otherwise give it time to cool without putting the settings all the wayup. Put them on the factory settings usually in the middle of both knobs or whatever you have for adjusting the coolness. Overheating the compressor will not cool the unit and you might try shutting the unit down for a day and then resume again the next day at middle or lower settings. Make sure never to lay a refrigerator over on it's side! The life of a refrigerator should be up!
