Question about Refrigerators

Why will my kenmore c978-54463-1 not freeze items in freezer and not cool items in fridge?

The thermostat has been gradually increased and is now at "9". Have reset the defrost switch and the unit runs OK when this switch is reset to "on".

It could be several problems. Do you see frost building up in the freezer back panel? if so possible bad defrost thermostat or heating element. Also could have a freon leak or bad compressor. Very hard to diagnose without actually seeing it.

SOURCE: Candy CPCA250 GB Freezer feezing but fridge not cold

Hello jonnyclewlow
Welcome,


You said, you recently had a problem with my Candy fridge freezer (it defrosted overnight and wasnt cooling at all) and a repair shop diagnosed a thermostat problem. I have replaced the thermostat, Now the freezer freezes without any problems but the fridge does not go cold at all.
Also the compressor is running constantly

This is my first thought

Fresh Food temperature is
too warm. Freezer
temperature is satisfactory.

1. Fresh Food control is set too
warm.
2. Set fresh food control to a colder setting. Allow 24
hours for temperature to stabilize.

3.Then see if you do not have your freezer articles packed full up to the top, or covering the cold air vents usually found in the rear of the freezer compartment.

The fridge and the freezer share the cold air so the air must not be restricted from travel form the freezer to the fridge and back!
This would also cause the compressor to run none stop trying to cool the fridge!
So check your air vents in the freezer.
I'll bet you did not know they were there !
Most of us never notice!
Hope this works for you.
Please let me know that one of these solutions worked for you!
or if you have any questions.
Thank You, huuum

SOURCE: maytag mff2557hew fridge not cooling. Freezer ok.

Sounds like the Freezer Fan is wearing out or is worn out. This fan problem is very hard to detect. The reason is that when the motor is starting to wear out the fan will spin, but at a much lower rpm. This is enough to keep the freezer cold. but will not ciculate enough air thru the freezer and the refrigerator to prevent freezer from and refrigerator from cooler. The cost to repair/replace this fan is a minimum of $300.00

Testimonial: "Your solution was right on the mark! The fan was spinning but not fast enough (according to my repair guy). Thanks again!"

My kenmore coldspot mode 106.53394300 is freezing items in the fridge


If further adjustments cannot be made to the thermostat, the next step would be to replace the thermostat or if so equipped, the temperature thermistor.

You need to make sure nothing is blocking the vent located in the back of your freezer, by removing all items you will have a better flow..

Bad defrost timer/ thermostat???


It definitely sounds like you have a bad defrost timer, that is the reason the coils are icing up on you. The next issue, which may or may not be related is the freezing of items in the refrigerator. Usually the cold air is transferred, through a vent with a damper, from the freezer and into the refrigerated section. The "thermostat" for this section is actually usually just a lever to adjust the position of the damper. That being said, usually when you have a problem such as you are having, it is either a stuck or broken damper (or damper component). Hope this helps
