    I don't hear the fan turn on when I open the freezer - After about 10 seconds I hear a noise that sounds like maybe something trying to cut on, but then it immediately stops.   There is a thick build up of frost on the back panel.



     



    Is this something I can do myself?



     



    Thanks!

Check to see if you hear the fan running in the freezer when you open the door.  If you don't hear it then it will need to be replaced.  This is the most common problem on this model.  Also, check to see if there is a thick frost buildup on the back panel of the freezer.  Let me know what you find before you rate this solution.

    If you are handy and have some basic tools then I am sure I can walk you thru it.  It has a defrost problem.  Let's start with this.  What is the entire model # from the inside of your fridge?

The plastic tray at bottom in the fridge just above freezer compartment has a slight crack. Can this be repaired


Hi, they can be repaired with a plastic solvent glue usually comes in tubes. Make sure the tray is dry and at room temperature before putting the glue on. It should slightly melt the plastic and fuse it together. I would put another coat of glue on once the first coat is dry.

The freezer on my Kenmore Elite Trio has stopped freezing. All my food is thawing. How do I set the freezer temperture at the coldest setting?


If the temperature is the problem this could be the solution

Problems with Temperature
If the refrigerator or freezer is not cooling properly, check temperature settings and air vents and ensure there is adequate room for proper airflow. Factory-recommended temperature settings are 0 degrees Fahrenheit (-18 degrees Celsius) for the refrigerator; and 37 degrees Fahrenheit (3 degrees Celsius) for the freezer.
If you need to adjust the temperature, do it one degree at a time and wait 24 hours before making additional adjustments. Check the air vents and make sure nothing is blocking them. Finally, if your refrigerator or freezer is too full, there will not be adequate room for air to circulate and cool properly. If these all check out, the problem could be with one or more compressor components and will require professional repair.

Hope this will help you.

Thanks for using FixYa : )

Freezer and Fresh food section at room temperature


Sir, To solve this problem, you must open the compressor area at the back bottom of the refrigerator and chek the temperature of the pressure line. If the temperature is between 55celcius to 60 than its ok. Or else you need to change the refrigerant. I suggest you to contact the service authority.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Refrigerator not cooling but freezer is


Something has stopped the cold air being ducted from freezer side to refrigerator side of things. Possibly duct blocked due to ice build up, evaporator not self defrosting etc. Turn unit off for a few days till it melts and then turn back on. If it was because a door has been left slightly open you will be ok. If for any other reason you will want to have it serviced in the next week or so.
