Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
Freezer side works just fine, but refrigerated side is not chilling food and drink at all.
This happens when the coils frost over. That stops airflow from freezer to refrigerator. If the fan in the freezer is running read on: All frost-free refrigerator-freezers have a thing in the system called
a Defrost Timer. The thing is a little clock of sorts that tracks
accumulated running time. Every 8 hours of run time the thing cycles
through a defrost cycle. The defrost cycle is necessitated by the
humidity that forms ice crystals on the freezing coils, if the frost is
not eradicated it can build up to the point where no air flows over the
coils to chill the inside of the box. The Defrost timer in all boxes
fails eventually from old age. When that happens, the coils frost over
until they become pretty much just a solid block of ice. Most timers
are located on the front of the machine, behind that removable grille
under the door. The timer has a round hollow shaft through it, and can
be turned with a screwdriver. Give
shaft a slow twist until a click is heard. The compressor should stop. Check the fridge in 1/2 hour to if it restarted. Sometimes the nudge will make the timer run for a
while. (be sure to make it restart if it does not on it's own)If I'm on the mark you will need to get a replacement timer. The process can be repeated daily until you get a replacement.
Hope this helps.
