Question about Kenmore 57029 Side by Side Refrigerator

Kenmore side by side, fridge not very cold 106.56249400

My fridge is not as cold as it use to be. I turned it all the way up to 7, and still no difference. I can feel some cold air coming out of the vent from the freezer, and I can hear the fridge running. Any ideas what this can be? I would like to try and fix this myself if at all possible. Thanks.

    Everything is not completely warm. Our milk is not as cold as it should be, things like that. I have the fridge turned all the way up to 7, which used to freeze the milk. The freezer is fine.

    Hi: Is it just the fresh food getting warm? Or both the freezer and fresh food?

Hi: I hope I have the Information right. Since your freezer is working that means that your freezer is so full that you blocked the vents (not common,) or your defrost heater is out, or your defrost timer is bad. Since your fridge should be frostless it requires the vents to circulate air. Now that there is frost building behing the panel it blocks the air to your fresh food. If you are handy the defrost heater is at the bottom of the freezer behind the metal wall in the back (a coil in a glass tube) You can inspect if the filimant is broken replace the heater. The defrost timer can be mounted in various places , sometimes on a circuit board. Since it usually is the heater I wont go into detail. The good thing it's not the compressor. You can take a hair dryer to the metal panel in the back fo the freezer to check. If it is betond your expertise melting the frost that has collected back there will make the fridge work for another week or two. Until the frost builds back up again.Feel free to contact me again if you get it apart and have a question. I hope this helps, Jeff

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

Kenmore refrigerator Freezer is cold but fresh food side is warm


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Refridgerator has power but does not get cold


Can you tell me if you hear the compressor running under the refrigerator? Is fan running beneath the refrigerator? Need to get the exact Kenmore model number found when you open the fresh food section. Let me know, Sea Breeze

My kenmore refrigerator side by side


All the cooling takes place in the freezer and is blown over to the frig side so the frig side will start to warm up soon. Possible cause is the starting device to the compressor is faulty, compressor motor locked up or cold control faulty and not closing.

Fridge does not stay cold


If the compressor is running continually, could be short of gas , or a compressor problem, ie not pumping properly,make sure it has plenty of ventilation
