    I have a Kemore Coldspot 2002, model 51564102 and the freezer is 22 degrees, and the refrigerator is 50+ degrees, checked air flow don't know what else I can do from here, also have had to have 1 relay replaced that literally melted and was black, and the ice maker also quit working. But all I need answers for is the refrigerator getting to warm. As I've had the other 2 things fixed. Is there a websie for recalls it seems like a lot of people are having the same trouble.

I will assume until you can confirm the model number is near Sears KENMORE ELITE, Model No. 10650594000 But I will need you to double check because Sears always uses a number different than the MFG.
For the moment I need you to remove some things from the freezer and remove the back panel covering the evaporator coils. Look for the coils to be frozen over. If so it could be the adaptive defrost control found inside the fresh food compartment part number 4388932
Or a problem with defrost thermostat or the defrost element. I am here to help, Just let me know, Sea Breeze

Why is my kenmore freezer cold, but refrigerator not even when set at highest temp?


Hello Donna;

My name is peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You have not provided your unit model number, which is located in your fresh food section on a label, on the side wall near the top.

You only have one cooling source, and that is your freezer. Your freezer feeds your fresh food section. This is through a direct air vent.

Reach into your fresh food section where the air vent from the freezer goes into the fresh food section. Do you feel cool air? Probably not.

So, either the air vent is frozen up with ice which you can clear with a hair dryer, or you have a automatic air vent motor/ sensor assembly that is bad.

Give me more information and I will help you.

HOW DO I SET THE TEMPERATURE ON A SAMSUNG MODEL SRS615DP REFRIGERATOR


5 for both freezer and fresh food side. This corresponds to about 37 degrees in fresh food side and 0 - 5 degrees in freezer. Check for blocked vents from and to the fresh food side and return to freezer. Most problems occur because these vents are blocked and/or overstuffing of freezer and fresh food side. The air has to have room to circulate. Another thing to check is if the condensing coils are dirty. Normal access to the condensing coils if yours has one is inside the cardboard cover on the lower back side of the your refrigerator.
Hope this helps

The alarm light is flashing what do I do to stop it.


Hello Mrs. Mavis;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration.
The alarm light is a good thing. It is telling you that something is wrong. Generally, the alarm goes off when there is a temperature problem in either the freezer section or your fresh food section.
You only have one cooling source and that is in your freezer. Your freezer will satisfy its own temperature before it feeds your fresh food section.
Ok, Your freezer temperature should be between -2 & + 2 degrees F. Your fresh food section should be between 35 & 40 degrees. F. Adjust you temperature settings accordingly. Wait for a few hours to see if the alarm goes off.
Another problem with maintaining temperature control; people tend to over pack their freezer or fresh food section. Check to make sure your food product does not over extend the shelves. Also check the racks on the doors. Check to see if food product does not over hang the racks.
You also need to maintain your refrigerator. You have a cooling coil like the radiator in your car, it gets rid of heat. You must keep this clean. A dirty condenser coil can effect your temperature by as much as 40 degrees F. This coil is located either under in the front of your refrigerator or a canister looking item in the back of your refrigerator behind the lower cover.
Look at the back of your freezer wall. Is there a lot of frost or ice?
This could be either a defrost heater or freezer fan motor.

What is the ideal setting for fridge on Bosch KGN34VW20G


Hello John;

My name is Peter. I am a retired Sears service technician. The freezer temperature should be between -2 & + 2 degrees F. The fresh food section should be between 35-40 degree F.
Pick up a inexpensive temperature gauge with a steel shank. Place the temperature gauge in the freezer center. Do not make contact with any food product. Allow 20 minutes and read the gauge. Be quick the temperature on the gauge will drop quickly when you remove. Adjust the temperature control knob according until you reach the desired setting. Repeat this process as necessary. Do the same for the fresh food section.
You only have one source of cooling; the evaporator coil and fan in the freezer. The freezer will meet it's temperature setting first before it opens the fresh food section damper.
A balanced system will save on your electrical bills. The compressor will kick in only when demand is met. Your compressor should not be running continuously.

What is the correct temperature for a daewoo fridge freezer


Your freezer should be in the range of -2 degrees to +2 degrees. Your fresh food section should be in the range of 35-40 degrees.

You only have one cooling source and that is the evaporator coil in your freezer. The freezer will attempt to satisfy the freezer temperature setting first. Having met that it will open the air damper to your fresh food section. Such a high freezer temperature will cause freezer burn on your food. It is also a waste of electricity, where the compressor is always running to meet the high demand

PSC23NSTESS FREEZING VEGTABLES


Side by Side ModelsIf foods, such as fruits and vegetables, in the refrigerator are freezing, it can be caused by several things. First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenheit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • If food in the bottom of the refrigerator is freezing, this could be caused by a refrigerator not having enough food to absorb the cold air.
  • If food in the door is freezing, move the door bins up or down so they are one notch away from freezer vents (Side by Side models only).
  • The fresh food control should be at the normal setting of 5.

First, check the controls. They should be set at "C" and "5" or "5" and "5". The proper fresh food temperature is between 38 and 42 degrees Fahrenehit. The freezer should be between 0 and 8 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Since the cold air coming into the fresh food section originates in the freezer above, the rear of the top shelf will be the coldest spot in the fresh food area. Avoid placing delicate items that freeze easily on the back half of this shelf.
  • If food is freezing in the produce (fruits and vegetables) or meat pan, it may be that the temperature controls are not set high enough. Since cold air naturally falls, the pans can get too cold if the refrigerator is not running long enough to maintain good air circulation. Adjust both controls up one notch.

What should the temp be for freezer and refrigerator?


dont know model, do know temps. The fridges highest temp is 5deg c, preferably between 1 and 4, if freezer goes above minus(-)18deg c your are in danger zone, there should be a regulator control in the fridge, usually on left or right hand side near front(door)

Temperature does not go below 59 deg. refrigerator side.


Auto Damper models, The Auto Damper model refrigerator has
two controls and both have capillary sensing.
The Auto Damper controls the fresh
food temperature and the Freezer Temperature
Control guides the freezer temperature.
The fresh food compartment temperature
is maintained by a damper assembly located
at the back of the temperature control
housing. Changes in air temperature
cause the damper door to open and close.
A control rod and gear connect the fresh
food control knob to the damper control.
Turning the fresh food control knob to the
COLDEST position increases the flow of
freezer air into the fresh food section. The
freezer compartment temperature control
warms at a faster rate and cools at a slower
rate, increasing the compressor run time
necessary to maintain a satisfied freezer
temperature control.
Turning the fresh food control knob to a
WARMER setting decreases the flow of
chilled air into the fresh food section. The
freezer compartment temperature control
warms at a slower rate and cools at a faster
rate, decreasing the compressor run time
necessary to maintain a satisfied freezer
temperature control.
It is ver possible that the auto damper has failed and will need to be cosidered as a likely cause.

Freezer extremly cold, some frost on items. The fridge is also too cold, freezing food in the bottom crisper bin. Kenmore Elite side by side model # 5320902. We have the temperatures set higher to...


The compressor is cycled on/off by the fresh food temperature setting. The freezer setting controls a panel, or door if you will, that allows cold air to be blown into the freezer.

Since both compartments are getting too cold, the most likely culprit is the fresh food thermostat control, since it controls the compressor cycle. Try setting it to a higher setting, even if it's above normal. Use a manual thermometer to check the temperature of the fresh food compartment and compare it to the control setting. The readings should be the same or very nearly the same.

I assume your refrigerator is controlled by a solid state controller (i.e. a printed circuit board). Some of these allow for calibration of the thermostat to coincide with the actual temperature of the fresh food compartment. That would most likely have to be done by a service technician unless you have expertise in the field.

If calibration is not an option, if you can live with the thermostat setting not reflecting the actual temperature, a free fix is to simply set it higher than you actually want it to be, recognizing that the actual temperature is 'X' degrees lower than the thermostat setting.

The freezer compartment temperature will be similarly affected, and can be controlled by the freezer temp setting, which is actually nothing more than setting the position of the panel which allows or restricts air from being blown into the fresh food compartment from the freezer. Again, the compressor is cycled on and off by the thermostat in the FRESH FOOD compartment which gets its cold air from the freezer compartment.
