I have a Kenmore refrigerator model 795.7102. The freezer on the bottom wil not go below 20 degrees. The refrigerator will be at 40 degrees. Something is running all the time.


It's possible that the defrost timer motor has stopped. (note your timer might be incorporated in an electronic control module) This will cause the evaporator coils to ice up. Less likely: The timer may be OK, but the defrost heater assembly is open circuit and therefore not heating up. According to RepairClinic.com, 795.7102 model number is incomplete: "795.7102 is a partial model number for a Kenmore Refrigerator. To see specific parts for your Refrigerator, please choose your exact model from the list above or choose the model that's closest." Here a link:

How can i check defrost timer setting on kenmore side by side refrigerator freezer


Hi,

I would need a model number to confirm your unit has a timer in it. To answer this question correctly I need your model number. If you have a timer, the time you seek is continuous run time which could be 6, 8, 10 or 12 hour run to a 21 minute defrost cycle. With a model number I could confirm which one and its time.

Defrost timer


The defrost timer is part of the electronic control baord located on the back of the refrigerator. If the freezer is not defrosting check the thermistor on the evaporator(freezer) coils. It can cause the control board to thing it doesn'y need defrosting. a common problem

We have a top freezer Kenmore refrigerator which is at least 12 years old. It is cooling intermittently. It will cool everything just fine for three or four days and then it will defrost completely.


That sounds like your defrost timer is beginning to failm moving slower and sticking into the defrost cycle longer than it should. WR9X520 Defrost Timer

Why do I need to defrost every week?


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. I had to do a reverse lookup of your model number and think I am close with this model number: 106.72102100 and can be found using the www.searspartsdirect.com website. Your defrost timer is item 4 of this link:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-10672102100/0582/0166000/P0109056/00002?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

It should automatically cycle your refrigerator into the defrost mode as often as 3 times a day. When the defrost timer or the defrost element (item 4 this link: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-10672102100/0582/0166000/P0109056/00006?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=
fails you will have to do a manual defrost. In addition a failed bi-metal thermostat (item 2 same link) can also cause the unit not to cycle out of the defrost cycle once it begins.

You can manually rotate the defrost timer using the 2 tabs if you kneel down and look into the overhead of the fresh food compartment. You will see a circular hole with the inclined tabs on it. Rotating this SLOWLY until the compressor shuts off or you hear a noticable click will start the defrost cycle. (Due to the inclined tabs you can only rotate it ONE direction.) The defrost cycle should self terminate after abiut 45 minutes. If it does not self terminate that indicates a problem with one of the 3 main defrost components. Timer, element or bi-metal thermostat.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Kenmore won't cool down.


I you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model

Hi, The defrost timer is located in the control panel. There should be 2-4 screws holding the control panel. Remove the screws and lower the panel to see the defrost timer. There are 2 screws holding the defrost timer in the control panel.
