Question about Kenmore 57029 Side by Side Refrigerator
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.
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
