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

    After a 3 day power outage, my fridge came back on all but the compressor. Everything seems to work except the compressor. I hear it click, but it will not start. After a while the comp just heats up, but never starts.

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.

Freezer won't freeze and fridge side freezing vegetables


In the back there is a radiator and it is frozen solid, you have to deice it, unplug the fridge and take the cover off and remove the ice build up, hair dryer should do the trick, or leave it unplugged for few hours.

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... :-)

Our Kenmore Pro side by side is still stuck. The service tech came out and replaced the control panel located in the fridge and that didn't solve the problem. There only thing working is a small fan in...


Sorry to say but your Service tech seems to be totally incompetent since the compressor still isn't working along with several of the other components. If that was the problems it should have reset itself the 1st time once it was installed. Have them send out another more experienced tech.

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.

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.

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


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
