Question about Kenmore Elite 22.4 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator with Adjusta Cube Ice Maker

1 Answer

Refrigerator stoped cooling

Out of the blue it stoped cooling, same with the bottom freezer, the fans work at the top and the bottom. Every 5 minutes I can hear a "click" and what seems to be the motor start working, within seconds the same click sounds and the motor stops, maybe the thermostat?
the cooling controls (buttons) are at the same levels as always and I have changed them to a higher cooling settings but nothing.

Any help would be apreciated.

Ok, if the unit compressor will not run and just clicks on and then off, this will confirm a low charge state ad you will need to recharge this unit. the refrigerant level is low.

Purchasing a recharge kit and recharging the system will fix this issue.

My Maytag MFF2558VEM Bottom Freezer French Door Refrigerator doesn't keep cool


What you should be looking for is a blocked air flow. The fan in the freezer will push air up to the fridge and cool it off. Look for a dead fan motor in the freezer or a blocked air vent Good luck

1. is light on in side when you open the door. If not check breakers or fuses.

3. If you hear clicking sounds, try putting a fan on compressor and unplug refrigerator.
4. Wait one hour.
5. plug back in. If compressor starts let it run and see if it cools, if it doesnt, call service man.
6. If it goes back to clicking, call a service man.

My refrigerator stoped cooling and freezing. The lights and the fan come on, but will not cool...


Hello,

The first thing I would do is remove the cover on the back of the fridge and check if the compressor is running. If it's not, then it could be the start device. Remove the power from the fridge, pull out the start device from the compressor and shake it. If you can hear something inside is moving, replace the start device.but if otherwise then,
Your defrost timer located inside the control panel is bad OR the defrost thermostat located on a freezer coil is bad.
Get down low and look up at the bottom of the control panel.
You will see a small round hole. Onside the hole is the defrost timer advance knob.
Use a flat blade screwdriver and SLOWLY turh the slotted knod clockwise until the refrigerator clicks off.
Wait a few minutes then open the freezer door and listen for a sizzling sound from the freezer compartment.
If you do hear a sizzling sound that would be the defrost heater melting ice.
If you do not hear a sizzling sound,unplug the refrigerator and remove the rear freezer panel to expose the cooling coil.
Clipped to the coil will be the defrost thermostat. It will need replacing.
If you do hear the sizzling sound the defrost timer will need replacing.

Good luck and hope this will work

KENMORE TRIO 2004 59675523400 REEFER/FREEZER NOT COOLING


It is the compressor that has failed. The hum is it trying to start and the following click is the overload protector opening. What is the temperature where the refrigerator is located? Allow the compressor to cool down before trying to restart it. If it still does not restart after it has cooled off it is done.

they all have fans the freezer does all the cooling for the whole unit there is nothing in the bottom unit that cools the freezer fan blowes air from the freezer down to the bottom and draws air to the top if you dont hear the freezer fan running and there would be no doubt in your mind if it was then pull the fan cover and see why and let my know hold my rating till we are done please
