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

It appears your thermostat has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Hi,

This is a common problem. The situation you mentioned is highly suggestive of faulty control board ( or call as motherboard ). You could try to unplug the refrigerator for few minutes, say 15 minutes and then turn it ON. If you do not see any improvement, it would confirm faulty control board and needs replacement.

However, there were few models in the past which had a reset option where you need to hold the power up and power freeze pads at the same time until their little lights come on then you press a small square button on the ice-maker then the compressor and fans start up.

Thanks and Regards

Switch off the fridge and after about 6 hours plug in the fridge to start. Observe cooling to happen in about one hour and ice to from under three hours.
Earlier make sure that the thermostat was set to normal mode for freezer and fridge.
However if Ice forms then observe the fridge for about 24 hours for cooling to continue and the fridge to cut off . If not the auto defrost timer, or the thermostat must be checked.
The circulation fan must be checked to work as if frost forms it can be stuck up . So check if the defrost timer works and also if the heaters are working, check continuity of the heaters.
So try this test from the outside and make your observations so that we come to the solution.

Kenmore Elite fridge cools but we noticed the compressor and fan never turn off. Compressor is very hot to touch. Do we need to replace compressor or a relay switch or ...? Thoughts/suggestions?


Newer refrig. Run almost continuous but you could try cleaning the condenser coils, located on back with vacuum and brush also place thermometers in freezer and mid level refrigerator, freezer should run 0 to -8 F and refrigerator 34-37 F. If much lower adj. thermostat up.

Kenmore elite french door refrigerator and freezer not cooling


Check the compressor start device. The fans will be running and the compressor fan will be running but the compressor is problaly not running. If it is then it could be the compressor itself that is not oumping.

Compressor stop running on Kenmore model 596 75523400 can it be reset?


Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

Is the compressor HOT to the touch? If so unplug the unit for at least 30 minutes and plug it back in.
If the compresor is cold then it may be stuck in the auto defrosting mode. When this happens usually either the 60 Deg F Bi-metal thermosat or a thermistor has failed.

(Evaporator

If that checks out then we start replacing the PTC relay and thermal overload on the compressor IF there is power to the compressor. Otherwise we start looking at temp controllers and themal fuses.

You make have to access the links above via this page http://www.searspartsdirect.com
Then enter your model number as 596.75523400 under find it fast / model search.

The other possibility is the electronic control item 5 under "controls":

The only way to find out is to read out the circuits with a meter.

Kenmore Elite Trio Refrigerator not cooling


No, it is not a failed condenser. You need to see if the compressor is running though. When it runs you shaould have a fan in the freezer running, a fan underneath the fridge running, and the compressor should be running. I would be willing to bet that either the compressor is bad, or the start relay on the compressor.

Sounds like a problem with the compressor.  Get a service tech in.
