Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator
A while ago I started noticing ice building up on bottom of the freezer and since that time have broken it out, and cleaned out the drain tube so it is clear of ice about 4 times. And the problem is that the freezer is way too cold and freezes our ice-cream and everything else rock solid. I've got the freezer setting all the way down to one and it doesn't change the temp. The refrigerator temperature is okay, but has been slightly freezing the lower two crisper drawers. I've had a fridge repair guy out twice already and he pretty much offered me no good advice but he still got my money for showing up. I've cleaned the grills underneath the unit of dirt and junk like the repair guy suggested, but it didn't do anything. Any suggestions?
The possible cause is the temperature sensor or thermostat is not working, maybe its switch is stuck up on ON position, it looks like a wire attached to the area where ice is building up, it is connected to a switch to turn off the compressor thus controlling the operation of your freezer. replace with new thermostat will solve the prob.
