Need info for a kenmore side by side refrigerator model#59652673202 it it not cooling nor freeszing ; the light works and the fan works but not cooling any side please help me


Good day,
With that amount of info it would be hard to try to pinpoint it. Here's a list of items that can cause a refrigerator to not cool.

Items that will cause a refrigerator not to cool.....
1. Defective thermostat
2. Defective freezer fan motor
3. Defective defrost timer
4. Defective defrost thermostat
5. Defective defrost main heater.
6. Defective condenser fan motor
6. Defective compressor overload protector
7. Defective compressor start relay
8. Defective compressor start/run capacitor (some models only)
9. Defective compressor
10. Restriction in refrigeration sealed system
11. Loss of refrigerant (leak)
12. Excessively dirty condenser
13. Broken wires, bad wire harness connectors, ect.
14. Defective fan motor switch (some models only)

As you can see it could be one of many,many items. If your handy with a meter you might want to start at the bottom back of the machine where the compressor is located.
Sounds as if it is not running, or running without refrigerant in the system.
Also, if it has a cooling fan motor in that area, make sure it runs, since all fan motors are wired to run at the same time.

Refrigerator compressor won't start.


There is normally an overload relay that protects the motor. If the motor is drawing more current than what is specified by the overload relay then it will trip. After that the bimetal will cool down and will attempt to start again. It is either that the motor is partially shorted (burned) or the starting capacitor is faulty. Before you condemn the compressor/motor (normally in one package), check or replace the starting capacitor. this can easily be done as the capacitor is readily acessible and has only 2 connections. If the capacitor is good, you can check the motor by measuring the resistance of the coil and resistance to ground. The motor coil should not be very low, maybe between 5 to 15 ohms, below that means that there is a short. Resistance of the coil to ground should be more than 500 megaohm, below that means the insulation is already compromised. If the motor/compressor is damaged, replacement will also require freon loading after motor replacement. It depends on where you are, there are places where the labor cost is so expensive that these appliances are not worth repaining anymore.

Refrigerator not cooling


the clicking sound you can hear is the relay or clixon as sometimes it is known by trying to start the compressor it may be stuck,first turn off the power to the refridgerator then turn the fridge so that you can see the motor,on the side of the motor you will see a small plastic cover remove it to expose the relaly remove it by pulling it towards you exposing 3 pins in a triangle shape give it a shake to free the solenoid inside the relay relace in the same way you took it off power up the fridge listen to see if you can hear the motor run constanly if it just starts and then goes of its more than likely the compressor is us

Kenmore model 106.53644300 side by side does not cool


First replace the compressor start relay. If that does not correct the problem you have a bad compressor.

Replacing a relay switch on a Kenmore Side by Side


The start run relay kicks the compressor on. If your compressor is running this is not your problem.
There are a number of things that can cause a fridge not to cool. A bad defrost system.. Check to see if you have ice build up in the freezer, or a lot of frost. Also a bad compressor. The relay switch sits on the compressor at the back of the fridge. If you put a new relay on and it won't start the compressor you have a bad compressor. Most compressors are warrantied through the manufacturer for at least 5 years. So if it's that call the manufacturer for replacement.

Frigidaire refrigerator model FRT21LRGW5-compressor sound is loud


If it is the compressor making that sound,The compressor is bad.
A fan motor can as make this type of noise as well when going bad.
If it is the fan motor stopping,this will also shut the compressor down,due to the thermal overload protection.



Please rate this a fixya.

Kenmore refrigerator compressor clicking


Relay on the compressor bad.

Try unpluging for 30 - 45 min until the compressor has cooled down then plug it back in. If it doesn't start replace the relay. Most service techs carry a universal relay and wiil put the relay on, if it starts, your good to go, if not, then the compressor is bad.

My Kenmore side by side stopped cooling


I think your compressor has given up the ghost. Yes it is possible that it could be a relay problem but not likely.

I also have the same refrigerator model 106.56566400 and periodically when the power goes off in the house the refrigerator & freezer will stop cooling. Try pushing the on/off button located inside the refrigerator to the left of the digital temperature controls. Hold the button down, this turns the unit off, then press it again to turn it back on. This basically resets the refrigerator, and most of the time works to get the refrigerator cooling again. Try this first before calling a repair man.
