Kenmore cold spot not cooling properly

I have a kenmore cold spot side by side and it is not cooling properly in the fridge or freezer. Items in the freezer are thawing. i tried cleaning the coils (they were very dusty) but that has not seemed to have helped. The air blowing into the freezer still does not seem very cold. any ideas?

Kenmore 596 - temp control panel not responding when up or down buttons selected. Fridge too cold. Freezing items in fridge after power outage last night.


Hi,
Most times this is a bad cold control, but there are other things to check for. Make sure the condenser fan is working and the coils are not covered with dust. A separated heat exchanger ( small capillary tubing soldered to the large suction line ) can separate from one another and make the fridge run too long. - tape tubing back together. A poor working evaporator fan motor could also make the fridge run too long and freeze - replace the fan motor. An inefficient compressor or refrigeration system could make the fridge run too long and freeze - have a service tech check this out. A misaligned control settings, make sure the air damper and cold control have not been bumped and are out of normal settings. Stuck open air diffusers or air dampers are becoming more and more common for allowing too much air to be blown into the fresh food section and freezing things. On all frost free fridge's the freezer temp air is blown into the fresh food section, if you have "easy" to freeze items ( eggs, veggies in water, etc ) in front of or under where the freezer temp air comes out, they could freeze - store them in a different spot. Doors not closing properly making the fridge run too long is something else to check for.
Okay, hope this will help in solving problem

You will need to remove the rear panel in the back of the freezer compartment. If Frozen over defrost with a hair dryer. At the bottom you will see a defrost heater WR51X10101 Defrost Heater it has glass around the element inside and will be easy to spot if burned out. Let me know what you find, Sea Breeze

I have a Kenmore coldspot side by side- not cooling properly


Setting it to 5 is what the manufacturer recommends. If you set it to 1 and the frig is still not cold, then you probably have a faulty cold control (thermostat)

Kenmore cold spot refrigerator freezer


I would look to the condenser where the heat is removed from the refrigeration system for your problem. Check and make sure the condenser fan operates, check the compressor for operation. If the condenser is plugged with dust it will cause the compressor to cycle on its thermal overload protector. Normally in back there is a removable panel to access the condenser and compressor area. make sure you reinstall the cover after you are done. It is critical to proper operation and cooling of the system.
