Sounds like the defrost heater is not working. Burned out heater or bad defrost thermostat.

Freezer is running constantly. ice crystals formed on outside of packaged foods. food is still frozen.


the door was left open,if you find frozen water droplets on the food packages or ice crystals it forms from the warm air coming in,make sure all the packages are pushed in and not hitting the door and you can tilt the fridge back a little so the door will close with a slight push.also check the ice shout door and make sure no air is leaking through it,you'll know you'll see all ice around it.you can check the condenser coil and condenser fan to see if it needs to be vacuumed,the machine will run longer if the coil is clogged with dust or if the fan isn't blowing,the coil should be cleaned every 6 to 12 months.hope this helps but it sounds like the freezer door was left open.

Compressor conning on for only approx 10 seconds and off for approx 30-60 seconds continuously. Freezer not cold enough to keep things frozen


Check condenser is cleaned. Replace relay and check compressor is working. If working keep your arm on condenser coil to feel warm. If not, no gas int he system. Call repairman to rectify. And also keep fridge temp setting between 36*F and 46*F and freezer temp between -14*F and 8*F. Thanks.

Fridge coil is frozen but the fridge is not cold. Freezer coil is not frozen but freezer is cold. Icemaker doesn't produce ice and the water in the ice maker is not cold. What do you think?

Kenmore Elite Coldspot side by side Model # 106.57706701 Frdige warm, freezer is frozen up. Have removed back panel several times in ther freezer to defrost coils and several weeks later, same problem.


check the fan that transfers the cold air from the freezer to the fridge. thats where it comes from if you didn't know that. also check the the fan on the condenser at the bottom of the fridge. it should be blowing hot air off the condenser to facilitate the elimination of the heat from the condensing unit, just like your a/c does on the houe.

GE TFX26KRDA WW 2001 side by side refrig/freezer w warm fridge


Cleaned the condenser coils which were dusty but not severely so. Checked the evaporator coils which were NOT iced. Reset the fridge to coldest setting and freezer to #5 (mid range of temperature) and waited a full 36 hours. Fridge temp is 40 F and freezer is about 0F. Not sure what is different except coldest setting on fridge. Warm weather is here but not warm enough to require AC. Temps in late afternoon in house about 77-80F. Any thoughts are appreciated because I suspect this problem is not completely resolved.

Kenmore Coldspot side by side fridge/freezer no longer cold.


The black thing is the compressor. It should run warm but not hot. This usually indicates it's time to clean the condenser coils under the refrigerator. Try using a long soft brush and your vacuum cleaner.

I can offer a suggestion. It sounds like you have a plugged defrost drain line. This is where the water goes to in the bottom of your freezer when it goes through the defrost (removal of ice from the freezer coil) cycle. It sounds like that hole is plugged and now the water/ice has now frozen in the vent that lets air circulate down into your refrigerator compartment. What I usually do in this case is to unplug the refrigerator, empty out the freezer compartment. Usually I also end up either pulling off the back panel or the bottom panel (in the freezer compartment) Looking for that defrost drain hole and thawing it out with a heat gun (be careful of melting plastic) or actually I use a hair dryer. I can sometimes do this also by pouring small amounts of HOT tap water onto it and then sopping/absorbing it away with a sponge or dishcloth. I repeat this until I get the water to go down the drain tube
