No cold air to Fridge of Freezer; Fan works

I have a side by side 1999 Kenmore Coldspot Model # 10658562891. The fan down at the bottom runs, but the is no cold air going into the fridge or the freezer. I had the capacitor replaced last year becauce of the same problem. Is it common for it to need to be replaced so soon?

    No you shouldn't have to replace it so soon. Now there are those rare times that you can get a bad capacitor but very unlikely. Is the fan working inside the freezer?

Kenmore elite coldspot model 106.74219400 freezes in the fridge never gets above 5 or 10 degrees and it never shuts off.


there is a flap in the refrigerator side usually near or behind the light bulb the freezer side is thermostatically controlled with the compressor being controlled. On the refrigerator side the cold air comes from the freezer side. when this flap is open the refrigerator will cool continuously, Check the flap or the duct assembly
here is an illustration of the part

Kenmore side by side fridge. Green temp light flashing for fridge side, freezer side working fine. Fridge side not cooling.


possibly frosted up at the air door between the fridge and freezer, or the fan in the freezer is not pushing cold air into the fridge side, if you can not hear a fan running in the freezer when the fridge is running (compressor on) then change out the fan

My kenmore coldspot refrigerator is warm with water forming inside yet freezer is working


It could either be a fan at the back of the freezer not working or short of gas. Some fridge/freezers control the fridge section with a fan blowing the cold air down the back when required, but all evaporator coils will ice up at the start from continuously running and trying to cool the end of the coil.

I own a Kenmore Coldspot 106.71182101 and the refrigerator is now warm while the freezer is perfectly cold and holding it's temp. What can I do about the refrigeratornot being cold?


A common problem; the fan which should circulate some of the cooled air into the fridge is not running. You can verify this while the compressor is running by wetting your fingers and holding them near the vents in the back of the refrigerator. If you cannot detect any air flow, the fan is dead.

Go to Sears parts website and enter your model number. Especially since it is Kenmore, it should bring up a line-drawing and parts list for your model.
Sears Parts Direct
You can then decide whether it is accessible enough for a DIY replacement or if you would rather call a service company to replace it for you. Check with your local BBB to pick a reliable service company.

Freezer too cold--refrigerator too warm


If the cold control is not adjusting the temp when you move it, that can be part of the problem.

Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Bottom drawer of the refrigerator freezes the fruit.


I think the thermostat is faulty. Thus it makes the freezer extra cold. Try replacing it. Regards, Nandini.

Kenmore Coldspot EM5119829. The Freezer works


The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp

or..
If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.

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.

Hot to touch


there is another fan at the bottom, rear, of the refigerator. remove the bootom panel and look at the cooling fins to make sure they are not bent into the fan blades. Caefully bend the fins away from the fan. this should improve the cooling of the refrigerator and get rid of the hot spot on the rail between the refrigerator and freezer.
