Kenmore refrigerator only won't cool

I have a Kenmore refrigerator only unit (Model 253.6072100) that recently stopped cooling.The compressor runs, the fan runs, the defrost circuit seems to operatenormally. The evaporator fins however, only frost up where the tubingcomes into or leaves the refrigerator. Sorry, not up on technicalterms. The fins themselves do not frost up at all. Any ideas on whatthe problem may be? Any tests that I can run to narrow the problem? Thefrig is just a little over a month out of warranty. Figures, huh! Anyhelp is appreciated. Thanks

You request a ref/aircon technician to check the freon gas and the tubing. Freon gas may have leaked.

Hi, this is a sign the compressor is weak and not pumping properly. Is this under 5 yeard old? Compressors use to be warrantied that long is why I asked.
It will not be worth fixing if not in warranty.
I hope this helps you understand what it is you are seeing.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

fan in the rear bottom, along with any other debris. I unplugged the frig because the compressor was very HOT!.Question? Could the compressor have a Locked-Rotor? If so what can I do to loosen it.

Freezer works Refrigerator will not cool down


The compressor should be OK this time because you caught it in time. But if the condenser fan stops you need to consider replacing the fan. I have had refrigerators do fine until the fan motor warms up and you are away, it stops. Don't think you should use the refrigerator until the fan is fixed. Sea Breeze

Kenmore top freezer fridge does not cool but freezer works


Turned refrigerator off for 8 hours, let the frost melt and the fan in the freezer worked again. The compressor now only has a soft clunk when it goes off.

Warm refrigerator/freezer


very good chance it is the same problem or possibly a leak of refrigerant due to joint failing where compressor is joined to pipework
