Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

Open Question

Fridge top, frezzer bottom kenmor model 59675932402. Frezzer working top not, read comments I belive it my be the deforst timer, but I read where you can turn it manually, but where can I find it?? An

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.

    Cleaning the "coil/radiator looking thing underneath" is regular maintenance. Was this the first time you did it in 5 years?



    You also say the gasket seems fine but needs cleaning, also regular maintenance.



    Do a super clean on the coils and gasket as your first step in diagnosis.

SOURCE: my frezzer works but refrig doesnt cool well

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

Issue with Kenmore Refrigerator/Freezer


ok,1st check on fridge side toward upper back of the top and feel for air coming thru, and there is another one down possibly behind crisper .I had this same deal. Had to do total defrost,, put food in cooler,, theres two blower fans in these types of fridges,,one in the bottom back,, and one in the back of the frezzer,, I used an old hair dryer and let it blow warm to top interior of frezzer,, careful not to let any cords hang/drop in any water!!,ok once done dry out as much water as possible, turn fridge on set both controls to 4,when fridge kicks on do the feel test,, you may need to close the frezzer door, air should be felt near top inside of fridge,if so than shut fridge side and feel inside frezzer near bottom and air should be felt,, side-by-side need to circulate air from frezzer to fridge, then back to frezzer

I have a ffa90 futre fridge & bottom frezzer. the fridge is frezzing the food in the door & in the fridge. have tryed water in botles & they get ice on it .in the door the food frezzers so


Find where the supply air is coming into the fridge part. It comes from the freezer and could easily be supplying -18 air direct to the door. This would give you a 2 in the fridge but anything in the direct air path could freeze.

Fridge not getting cold


if the frezzer is on top in this model and food is frozen it may be the ciculation fan motor.You can advance the defrost timer,located where the control knob is inside the frdge.with a phillips head screwdriver inserted into hole turn defrost timer it should make a clicking sound if this goes all the way around and the fan does not come on it is probablly burned out

My Kenmore refrigerator is not cooling properly. Freezer portion works fine but not refrigerator. Came on suddenly.


I had the same problem. The frezzer worked but the fridge was not getting cold. What I have learned is that the frezzer make the fridge cold, so if the frezzer is working then something is blocking the cold air to get into the fridge. Most likely ice. The air come in at the bottom of the inside of the fridge next to the frezzer. Pull everything out of the frezzer, then unscrew the plannel that runs along the back and you see if there is ice. If so turn frezzer off and dry out the frezzer. I used hot water.

Kenmore Refridgerator/Freezer does not work.


check your damper vent door located between the fridge and freezer and make sure its opening up to let cold air into the fridge,also check the evaporator fan motor and make sure its operating to blow the air around the inside of the unit

Where is the deforst timer on my maytag


Some units are different. Some are located behind the temp control unit, others located up inside top of unit behind the panels. There is usually a diagram on the back of your fridge
