Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
Noticed the refrigerator (Kenmore Elite Side-by-Side) was not cold, compressor really hot and found that the condensor fan had failed. I unplugged unit to see if the compressor was running and when plugged in the compressor did start running. Cleaned coils and place a smalll fan to provide air flow but after 24 hours unit will not cool below 52deg.
Freezer works fine
Is compressor bad from over heating?
The compressor should be OK this time because you caught it in time. But if the condenser fan stops you need to consider replacing the fan. I have had refrigerators do fine until the fan motor warms up and you are away, it stops. Don't think you should use the refrigerator until the fan is fixed. Sea Breeze
