Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
Seems every once in a while the bottom freezer ices up and the top refrig gets warm. If I manually twist the little red knob under the refrig (defrost timer) until it turns off it seems to work great defrosting the freezer. I do it like 2-3 times and it fixes the issue. Kenmore 596.71103101 about 5years old. Gasket seems ok, maybe it needs to be cleaned? Also, i just vacuumed a ton of dust off the coil/radiator looking thing underneath of the refrig from the front. since this keeps happening time to time, what is the likely cause? timer, thermostat, heater? thanks! I have a fridge top not working freezer working, I read all the comments and replys but I don't see any knobs to turn manually for deforst timer, can you tell me where it is pls. Model 59675932402. Your help would be appreciated.

Main control board bad . The board controls the fan opperation and the clicking , sounds like a relay on the board . Replacing the board should solve the problem(s) .

HI,CHECK FOR CONTINUITY ON THE DEFROST ELEMENT AND B-METAL IF THOSE COMPONENTS PASS THE TEST MAYBE THE TIMER OR DEFROST CONTROL COULD BE BAD IN YOUR REFRIGERATOR..GOOD LUCK..

open the freezer door,do you hear the fan blowing,if not hold in the door switch for a few deconds and let it go,if the fan isn't blowing this is your problem.all that happens is the freezer gets cold,the evap fan blows cold air through the damper and into the fridge section so if the freezer is fine you have a bad evap fan motor or the damper isn't opening all the way
