SOURCE: kenmore fridge. freezer top works, but bottom doesn't.

Either your fan has stopped working, or it is not defrosting. Take the back panel of the freezer off and see if the evaporator coil is iced over, if it is replace the deforst heater, and the deforst thermostat. If the compressor is running the fan if the freezer should be running. Also make sure both your fridge and freezer controls are centered. Putting the freezer on the coldest setting acutally shuts off airflow to the fridge.

Where is the main electronic control board located in a Kenmore Elite Model #596.76253702 ?

Hello Mike;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.


Your defrost problem may be your control board but, that is not where I would start.

In answer to your question, your control board is in the top front of your freezer section. When changing the control board ground yourself by rubbing your hands on something steel. Static electricity will knock a control board out.
Part number 12784415 - $120.00

More likely your problem is your defrost heater. You check your defrost heater with a multi-meter. Set the meter to the lowest Ohm setting. Place one meter lead on one end of the heater connector and the other lead on the other end of the heater connector. If the meter reads '0' or OL or infinity the heater is bad. It should read something like 35 or greater Ohms.
Part number 12729128 - $47.00

When changing you defrost heater it is common practice to also change the Bi-metl-def.
Part number W10165425 - $26.00

Both of these components are located behind the back freezer wall.

This is a major task to change these components. Bottom freezers are not service friendly.

1.) Completely empty the freezer (Unplugged).
2.) Take off the freezer front door.
3.) Remove the ice maker assembly.
4.) With a screw driver pop off the thermostat cover plate in the back upper right.
5.) Unscrew the back cover.
6.) Remove the center air vent. This is held in with plastic tabs. with a screw driver pop up the center tab and the side tabs.
7.) Pull the back cover out. You will need to flex the cover to clear the side rails.

Unless you are really good with basic electrical and hand tools, I do not suggest you attempt this repair.

A local service company will charge you about $400.00 or more.

Defrost timer

The defrost timer is part of the electronic control baord located on the back of the refrigerator. If the freezer is not defrosting check the thermistor on the evaporator(freezer) coils. It can cause the control board to thing it doesn'y need defrosting. a common problem

If there is ice built up on back inside freezer wall, you have a defrost problem. Either defrost heater, defrost thermostat, or defrost control (timer or Board) is bad.

The top part of the refrig keep freezing?

The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

Frigidaire Upright freezer with Beeping Display

First make sure you have a good 9v battery installed. If it is ok then the problem will probably be in the display board or the wiring connectors between the boards. CE is communication error. If your model has the electronic tempature control instead of mechanical thermostat the problem could be in there. My bet is a bad connection at display board.
