Question about Kenmore 44109 / 44102 Side by Side Refrigerator
Posted on Feb 07, 2009
You didn't mention it, but I'll bet there's a "humm" followed by a "click" noise coming from the back of the fridge. Even if you don't hear the noise, the starter on the compressor has failed. One of two things cause this... 1.) A mechanically failed starter. 2.) A seized compressor. If it's the starter only, you are in good shape. If it's #2 and the unit is less than 5 years old, it'll be a warranty claim. If the unit is less than 5 years old... do not attempt the repair yourself. Because, if you do and find the compressor locked up, you have voided your warranty and they will not repair for free. If it's over 5? Install a starter. We need the FULL model number off of your fridge to provide steps on this. It's located on a data tag affixed to the inner fresh food section lining. Most likely near the top on the right. Please post back with these numbers if you require further assistance.

Sounds like you may have a leak... can you tell if the compressor (black can in the back, bottom) is running also or not...if compressor is running and not cooling you may as well junk it....if the compressor is not running it maybe something more simple to fix...
If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.
If your refrigerator is running but warm, then...
Check out these tips that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...
