Question about Kenmore 50522 / 50524 Side by Side Refrigerator
This can be several things. Defrost timer is stuck in defrost, thermostat is defective, Adaptive Defrost defective, start relay defective or start capacitor defective. If you can find the model number on the bottom frame of refrigerator be behind fresh food door, see if you find a number like 213.54879 for example. If you can find that number I will be able to see your exact model and lead you to the problem faster. If you find the defrost timer turn it slowly clockwise until the compressor starts. If the thermostat is defective try unplugging refigerator remove the cover over the thermostat and check for continuity across both male connectiond with the wires removed or join the two ends of the wire together with a short wire taking care not to allow the wire to touch anything as you replug in the refrigerator. If not there the we will move down to compressor to feel if warm, hot, cold. We may need to check the start relay and start capacitor. Most times the defrost timer or adaptive defrost is founs behind the control panel next to the thermostat. I will need to get the complete model number to tell you excatctly what you have. Please unplug fridge befor touching any electrical parts Thank you, Sea Breeze
