Question about Kenmore 22.0 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with Filtered Ice and Water

1 Answer

15 year old Kenmore side by side refrigerator

My 22 inch Kenmore side by side is working on the freezer side but was not working on the fridge side. I removed the back panel in the freezer and found a giant block of ice on the coils. I melted it with a hair dryer and things seem to be working fine now. However, I don't know why it iced up like that. I think it has been gradually doing that for years and it finally clogged the air vent in the freezer. Could that be true? Is the thermostat faulty? It seems to be shutting of periodically. I have also seen the defrost heater glowing at the bottom of the freezer. What can I test to be sure it won't ice up again? thanks, Curt

Fridge is not keeping the food cold, water at the bottom of fridge, freezer is not as cold, still freezes things but takes a long time. This is a Kenmore 20 fridge, my guess is 15 years old.


unplug the fridge and leave the doors open for 48 hours, then see if your problem is gone 24 hours later after you plug it back in, if it is, your fridge needs to have a repair to the defrost side of things, most likely the defrost termination therm or the defrost timer, also make sure the drain under the evaporator is not plugged up

We have a less than one year old side by side fridge and the fridge part doesn't work but the freezer does


Good day,
All refrigerators carry a complete factory waranty for the first 12 months. Worry not, just call Sears.

Fridge temperature has suddenly dropped to 15


Check the door gaskets, condenser fan, refrigerator fan and the freezer fan. That should narrow down the problem.

My Kenmore fridge/freezer side by side isn't staying cold


Ok so we just had our Kenmore fridge quit cooling , everything in the freezer defrosted , and we lost a lot of food,BUT my husband ordered a part #8201786 which is a starter , and installed it and it worked! The fridge was clicking but it just wouldnt kick on, and the fan still worked. There are websites that you can order the part from, It cost $63.05 with tax!!!! good luck
