Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore Elite side by side. The freezer works great but the frig side won't stay cold. The fins are clean and the fan works. If I unplug the frig for a day it will work for a few days and then slowly get warmer. Any ideas?

Why does my refrigerator keep acting up the freezer gets frosted up then the frig gets warm I have cleaned it underneath unplugged it for 24 hours then plugged it back in it works great for about a w


This problem can have many causes, but generally it is a defrost issue. If the freezer coils are frozen over, they block cold air flow to the refrigerator; and can be caused by different part failures. See the link below for a good explanation of possible failures and for parts. Also, if you turn the refrigerator temp to 0ff and unplug the refrigerator then plug it back in, it should go into defrost mode. Leave it that way for 15 or 20 minutes, then unplug and plug it back in. It may resolve the defrost mode problem. If not you'll need a part, or repair man.

Kenmore Model 10654613300 Freezer over freezing


In the freezer side there is a panel in the back. behind the panel are the evaporators. over the evaporators are heaters you will find one of then broken from water dropping on it the bottom one was broken on mine. put a fan to the freezer and thaw it out. get the model and serial numbers and look on ebay.com. or there is a place called http://www.repairclinic.com/
These are not hard to change but above all UNPLUG THE FRIG OR THEY MAY PUT YOU IN ONE.

Hope this helps.

Kenmore 795 continually blowing cold air into frig


If the control will not change and the lock is lit, first try unlocking it. Press and hold the lock tab for 3 seconds. If nothing happens, try unplugging the power cord for 30 seconds and reconnect it. This will reset the board.

Freezer works, frig doesn't


there is a fan on many newer units that blows cold air from the freezer side to the frig. If that fan is not working, the frig will be cool, but not 34° like you want it.

My kenmore frig is not staying cold in frig. or freezer


One of the most common problems with refrigerators and freezers is over time dust and lint can accumulate in the condenser coils try cleaning the coils CAREFULLY! with a vacuum. Unplug the unit before doing any cleaning . most units have a cardboard cover in the back, remove this to get at the coils . also check the fan(if there is one ) to see that it is not stuck.replace cover and plug unit back in.
check to see if fan is running and for air movement under the front door of unit. Keep in mind all models are different and these solutions are generic ones .Hope this helps.

Freezer and refregirator are both down


sounds like the defrost timer is malfunctining and leaving on the heaters that melt the ice. or it may have just came out of defrost. take and feel the lines where they go into the compressor in the back. watch out for the fan blade when doing this. one should be cold and one hot. if not then the compressor may not have enought refrigerant in it. anothe thjing to check is the coils are they clean. the oines that are underneath are what i'm talking about. if they are not oyou will have toi clean them. good luc and let me know if you need more advice.
