SOURCE: "Help" Missing refrigerator door sensor & compressor is continuously running..

could be, since if the computer senses that the doors are open, then he would turn the compressor continuously in order to compensate for the losses of an open door refrigerator.

but with this kind of alarm, im sure it should have turn the refrigerator off if it has been sensing that the doors are open for the past 48 hours.

another thing to consider is that since it is second hand, it could have been repaired and things done to it for the compressor to run continuous.

tnx 4 using fixya,

Yes that would do it the temperature sensor / thermister sends the info to the control board as to what the temperature is in the unit so ya that would cause that problem. If you need more detailed help visit the link below:

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

Frezzer frozon

as you haven't mentioned the model number i have 2 options, Basically what is happening is that the thermostat is not detecting that the freezer has reached it's lowest temperature, So you need to replace the thermostat.

On some models the thermostat is a mechanical part which is quite cheap and easy to replace, on other models it uses an electronic control unit with sensor probes, these can be a bit more difficult to fix and the parts tend to be more expensive.

Hi, my GE refrigerator has ice developing on the rear wall of the freezer, and things in my crisper drawer are freezing solid,please help!!!!

Unplug refrig. Empty all food from freezer side and remove shelves from freezer. Remove back metal cover from inside freezer. Melt frost with a hair blower. Examine defrost heater at very bottom of the coils you defrosted. If heater coil inside glass tube is broken, replace defrost heater. (note: replacement may look different, but insturctions included with replacement address that) If heater is not broken, replace the small white pencil shapped sensor at the top of the cooling coils.

I just has the motherboard replace last week and now the Refrigerator side stop working and I have Ice on the back wall of the frezzer . Frezzer is still working well. gss22wgmd

You don't say why the mother board was replaced. Make sure the board was the correct one, part number WR55X10656 for your GSS22WGMD and that all plugs are firmly and correctly attached to it. If yes, then check the defrost heater (located behind the back wall inside the freezer, near the bottom) to see if it is burnt out. (If you disconnect the wires from each end of it and test, finding no continuity, it is bad) It is a part number WR51X10101 for your model, and is a fairly common failure point. While you have that apart, manually defrost the coils with a hair dryer. (the manual defrosting alone will get your refrig working for at least a week, allowing you time to get any needed parts.) If left alone without defrosting, your freezer section will not be working well soon either.

Your unit has infered sensors on the frezzer left and right walls. There is a diagnostic test sheet brown in color in your kick plate.All you have to do is open frezzer door look on the right sensor it should blink twice followed by a 1-2 sec delay,if that is good press in flapper door on right sensor do not block path of infered beam you will not see a beam its invisable.Once you hold in flapper on right sensor the led should be solid.If solid optics are good if not solid led replace optic sensors

I turn off the power of refrigerator for 24 hours and defrost the frezzer. The noisy sound stopped. I think sometimes we did not close refrigerator tightly, the ice built up caused the problem.
