Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

Open Question

Kenmore model #596.57582791 , the compressor and evaporator fan will not work. In looking at the wiring diagram it looks like the evap. fan motor get its power through the defrost timer. Seems weird to me. I am wondering if the compressor has a bad ptc relay?

Yes if you dont hear the evap fan wprking remove rear panel in freezer let me know what you see. Is coil iced over? Is fan running? Is the motor warm? Attempt to spin the blade gently to see if the motor is bound. You can oil these.

i found the defrost timer for my Kenmore 596.62239200 / freezer on bottom. it was in the top of the refrigerator compartment behind the light bulb console. had to remove the light bulb cover and then there are two visible screws that hold the defrost timer to the light console. the timer is up on top of the console and is not easily seen. ordered parts on www.repairclinic.com.

I HAVE A WHIRLPOOL MODEL GI6FDRXXY 07, AND THE EVAPORADOR MOTOR DOESNOT WORKING... IT NO RECEIVE THE 12 V... WHY? A NEED A WIRING DIAGRAM... TO CHECK...


If your evaporator motor is not working, you are so correct. The air circulated in the refrigerator is due to the evaporator motor fan. If left to operate without a fan to provide a heat load for your compressor, it could cause your compressor to fail. Your problem is most likely the defrost sensor inside the cover of your evaporator. It is probably stuck open and will not put power to your evaporator fan. Take you model number to Searspartsdirect.com and find the defrost sensor for your refrigerator and replace it.
Hope this helps

I have a Kenmore Elite model no is 59673502201 and it stop cooling in both the frig and freezer i replaced the condenser fan motor and it worked so i replaced the back and the unit will STILL NOT GET


Do you hear your evaporator fan running in the freezer drawer area?
If not, then that's the fan you should have replaced.

If your compressor is running and both the compressor fan and the evaporator fan are running, check the back wall of your freezer compartment. If it is frosted up, then you have a defrost problem.

If it's not frosting up, disassemble your freezer drawer section and remove the back panel in the freezer to look at your evaporator coil.

If it's partially frosted at the top, or bottom, but the rest of it is dry looking, then you've got a leaking sealed system.

If it's lightly frosted all over, then you have good coolant flow and you need to start looking at your thermostat and damper up in the fresh foods section.

Good luck!

Evaporator fan in my MSD2351HEQ quit running.


Carl, is the condenser fan motor running also? Looking at the wiring diagram of your refrigerator, you need to check for 120vac at the fan motor. If there is, replace the fan motor. If there is not, replace the Defrost Control.

Kenmore refrigerator making high pitch noise top front


could be the ice maker or the evaporator fan motor.you can try lifting the arm up on the ice maker and see if it stops,this will shut off the ice maker.also when you open the freezer door to lift the arm on the ice maker the evap fan motor should start when you open the door,you should hear it blowing around,is this the noise you hear?these are the two things i can think of that could make a noise up top,if not it could be the compressor or the condenser fan motor but these are down the bottom back of machine but still could be the problem,if the ice maker and evap fan motor both in the freezer are ok pull out the machine and remove the bottom back panel and check to see if the noise is coming from there where the condenser fan motor and compressor are,you're going to have to do some detective work to find the noise,hope this helps you out.

On some Kenmores it'shas a fancy term;it is called Pre-Chill. The compressor and compressor fan comes on but the inside fan does not till the evap chills down.

Refrigerator has a clicking sound and does not run


Replace the motherboard (part # WR55X10942) but be careful to check that the evaporator fan (inside the freezer) turns on when you power up the refrig again. A bad evaporator fan motor can take out the motherboard. If compressor starts with new board but not evap fan, unplug immeadiatelly and replace the evap fan motor to save new board.

Freezer works but refrigerator is staying at 50 degrees


Is this a French door unit? Do you see excessive build up of frost in the freezer on the back panel? Is that evaporator fan motor running? That is what circulates the air from the freezer to the refrigerator.

Not cooling, ice on evap. coil


After ten years, the defrost coil may be bad. That will allow the evaporator to ice up. Find the defrost timer, check it out first. Some have a manual control.

My kenmore refrigerator kept running.


from your description it sounds like your hearing the start relay trying to start your compressor. most likely this relay is bad and needs replacing.
