SOURCE: my kenmore sidexside quit cooling and freezing.

Good day,
He can't, although it's a good guess. However, The compressor can be tested and run with a special test cord most all techs have.
It allows the compressor to be run independent of the rest of the machine and is the definitive test. I would not go forward unless that test is performed. Compressors are too expensive.

I have a Kenmore side by side model 52569100 that is not cooling. Fan is running but not the compressor. Compressor is not trying to come on. Was wondering if it could have gone into defrost and not come...

If the compressor is not turning on you might want to check the relay switch.The switch is located on the side of the compressor usually with two wires running to it. To check unplug the fridge remove the switch and shake it, if it rattles you need to replace it.

Compressor stop running on Kenmore model 596 75523400 can it be reset?

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

Is the compressor HOT to the touch? If so unplug the unit for at least 30 minutes and plug it back in.
If the compresor is cold then it may be stuck in the auto defrosting mode. When this happens usually either the 60 Deg F Bi-metal thermosat or a thermistor has failed. Items 30 and 31 this link:


If that checks out then we start replacing the PTC relay and thermal overload on the compressor IF there is power to the compressor. Otherwise we start looking at temp controllers and themal fuses.
Items 10 and 11 this link:

You make have to access the links above via this page
Then enter your model number as 596.75523400 under find it fast / model search.

The other possibility is the electronic control item 5 under "controls":

The only way to find out is to read out the circuits with a meter.

Thanks for choosing FixYa

Kenmore Freezer Model 253.26732104 Compressor

the defrost timer may need reseting. when the defrost is on, it cuts power to the compressor so they don't run at the same time. it's usually behind the bottom front grate on the right side. also check the main circuit board. there's a fuse on it.

Refridgerator is not cooling but freezer is working fine.

check the back of the refrigerator, you will most likely notice two compressors. one should be bad and has stopped working. you can get it replaced and the refrigerant refilled.

otherwise, check to see if the two compressors are working (if affirmative) then, there will be a damaged or ruptured tube where the refrigerant must have leaked away.

have this checked out and repaired.

thirdly, the cut-out may be bad or their is an electrical connection fault to one of the compressors. have this checked and corrected please.

Kenmore model No. 253 11312100

Hi, No this freezer is not a self defrosting model. If it is defrosting while the compressor is running, you have a major problem.
If the compressor is not running, check the outlet for 120V and then check the thermostat to see if it is in the on position. If the control is on but the compressor os not running, check it for continuity. It must show closed while in the on position.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Kenmore 596.755 23400 problem with freezer

You can try to replace the relay and overload but on this model usually the compressors go bad. Call sears to check the warranty. The compressor should have a five year warranty.
