Kenmore side by side fridge not freezing after pwr went out for few hours

I see that i have the same problem as a few others. my power went out during the night early am...and now the fridge is not cold, freezer isn't working. my water dispenser is working fine. any ideas or troubleshooting techniques i could try before sears comes out and rips me a new @$$$%%@$* Oven starting smoking and heard a buzzt from the outlet on it, was working on it, but now the freezer won't freeze. I think a power surge must have knocked something out. Airflow and vents are fine.-Daron Fredericks

My Kenmore 106.58909802 is freezing the food in the fridge and the water line is frozen too. any ideas?

Turn up the thermostat a bit and place a fridge thermometer inside to monitor the temperature.

Pull the fridge away from the wall and vacuum the coils, and underneath. Leave it away for a few hours.

Hope this helps.

My Kenmore side by side is fine, except for freezing everything in the crisper drawers.

The coldest place in your fridge is in the crisper drawers, manufactures know this and they even put heaters under the floor of your fridge to try to heat it up a bit in there, if you set your freezer temperture to low there will be less cold air current that flows into your fridge but it will flow in over a longer period of time, that air is about -22C so it will be blowing on your items in your crisper for a long time and it will probably freeze them, all very confusing and complicated but it may help to turn your controles for your freezer to a warmer setting, on the other hand if you only open your fridge a few times a day the cold air being denser will settle in the bottom of the fridge and freeze the crisper area, not much you can do about this, except eat more food... :-)

For no reason, my freezer went up to 56 degrees in a matter of 5-6 hours. I pulled the plug like the manual states because the temp was blinking. That solved the blinking. In 6 hours the temp dropped to 44...

You have either a sealed system problem or a control board problem. It's difficult to know which is which. You will need a qualified technician to determine what the problem is.
Good luck

check to make sure that there is no ice build up in the went in the freezer, best way to fix is to shut off fridge for about 8 hours to defrost and then plug back in, this will help the fridge start cooling again.

turn both dials to 5 and wait for an hour, when it first conmes on they go into a defrost automatically, the defrost controller isa in the upper left hand side of the refrigerator compartment and may be an adaptive technology one that is just a circiuiot board thats about 4 by 4 and behind the area thats betwqeen the back dammper and the front of the unit. It may have fried and that wopiuld explain why your frig does not work.,

Kenmore fridge stopped cooling

sounds like its freezing up on you. check the drain outlet and make sure that its clear. also i would replace the defrost timer on this unit because its suppose to bring on the heaterfs to melyt the ice so thaat yoiu don't have to. they are around 30 mdollars at the appliancew repair store and all you need is the model number and serial number for the uit. after you get it it's either on the very top of the refrigerator section or in the very back. It has 4 wires going to it. good luck.

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.

Power Cool button works on freezer , but not fridge

He Alisonki! I was having the same problem. On mine the water coil inside the refrigerator keeps freezing which keeps the water from circulating and my refridge won't stay cold. I was told by one repairman that it was a computer problem and you have to order parts from the Samsung Manufactuer which takes about 2 - 3 weeks to get. I am tossing mine and buying a more reliable brand. One repairman came yesterday and left without fixing anything or charging me. Larry
