Try to locate the defrost timer. It sounds like the defrost timer has an intermittent fault and is not operating as it should. It should be situated in the compressor compartment. It is a white or black box with a little knob protruding from it. When the motor stops again, try turning the little knob on the timer untill you hear a loud click. The motor should then start running again. If it does, the timer is faulty. Replace it.

You have a defrost drain line that is plugged. You will have to look in the freezer way in back and on the bottom.

I have a Kenmore refrig./ model# 363.9741714

The problem is actually not the ice maker itself. The problem is the electric solenoid valve in the rear bottom of refrigerator. If you follow the water line on the back of the unit down to the bottom and replace the valve that it is connected to then your problem will be solved. Hope this helps. Good luck cj2176.

Kenmore fridge not getting cold

first thing to heck would be the condenser fan motor which is located int the compressor compartment pull the refrig away form the wall remove cardboard cover and inspect the fan motor that you will see. check for obstruction or if the fan motor is seized. if this motor fails it will cause the compressor to run extremely hot then shut off on internal motor protector. if you determine the motor is bad you can place a house fan behind unit blowing on compressor area to keep unit working until you get it repaired.

Refrigerator and freezer not cooling/freeding

Possibly a defrost circuit problem -

1) Bad defrost thermostat
2) Bad defrost heater
3) Bad defrost timer
4) Failed evaporator fan motor.

Look for frost accumulated inside the louvers at the back panel, top and bottom. If you see it, remove food from freezer and put in ice chest. Take out shelves, get hair dryer and warm the backside of the freezer, directing air down the louvers. Then leave to sit for 4-6 hours with the freezer door open. Put towels in the bottom of the freezer to catch any melted ice.
After period of time, plug unit back in and power the unit back up. Once you know it's cooling, empty ice chests back into freezer.

If there is a problem in any of the above components, then it will show up in 3-4 weeks witht he same problem again.

Kenmore Elite model 73503201, Refrig hot, freezer working.

first, sears doesnt make any of their own appliances, but they do sell them, so you can be upset, but it is fixable. what is happening is the freezer fan is not running causing no cold air to circulate. the reason the door strip feels hot is it has a heater to prevent condensation and when the unit is cooling properly it will feel normal temps.
check to see if you can hear the fan running in the freezer, if it is then you may have a defrost problem, but most likely you have a bad fan motor. remove the rear panel in the freezer and check the fan to see if it is turning. if not replace the motor.

Sears Kenmore bottom freezer/refrig #68142model

just called in a sears technician 150 dollar bill that was an easy fix. he says my bottom freezer kenmore fridge with warm fridge problem was due to the pathway being blocked by ice and garbage which is common with these fridges. he took off cover from the fridge bottom and poured boiling water down to the freezer. try that before you replace any parts or call in a tech. next time im getting a top freezer because the blower is on the top not in the middle with the bottom freezers and thus more problem prone.

Confused /

Ok the freezer section works the refrig section think of the refrigerator as a large cooler with an inlet and outlet hole cold air is blown into the refrig from the freezer via the fan motor in the freezer the really cold air comes in the top of the refrig and drops to the bottom of the refrig then it is sucked back into the freezer thru a vent hole in the bottom of the refrigerator ..GOT IT?? Now when a unit has a defrost problem there is an ice or frost build up in the freezer on the coil (bad heater,bad bi metal, bad timer can cause this) the ice builds and builds to the point where it blocks the air flow across the coil hence the air can not get to the refrigerator section making it warmer but the freezer section will work ok .. I hope this makes sense...Hint : A sign of this is a lg frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer.

Kenmore top freezer unit-refrig not cooling past 50degrees

check freezer for frost build up and if fan blowing, check condenser make sure clean, and fan blowing, check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, freezer control should be in the middle setting, you can try turning that to Warmer freezer allowing MORE air to refrigertor side.
