Sounds like the thermostat is bad. Banging on the control is a good trouble shooting technique.

I have a Kenmore Coldspot model 106. When the motor kicks on, there is an extremely loud a knocking noise which continues until the motor stops. What is the problem? Can I fix it without buying parts?


the compressor has a spring loaded base that with time wears out and will make a knocking noise when starting or especially when turning off. some Tecs say its not much to worry bout other then the noise not sure where I stand on that issue though.

these have to be in correctly to lock back in and allow the unit to function. Try removing the bin again and be sure there isn't any small pieces of ice trapped anywhere. Also make sure there aren't any broken pieces from the bin. Hope this helps. Good luck.

My refrigerator only kicks on when I adjust the temp knob.


You need to replace ( or have it replaced ) , the thermostat . The piece the knob pushes onto . The liquid is seperated inside the thermostat cap tube , causing the internal contact not to close . Also , a tap on the knob , will start the refrig , until it reaches temp , but then may not restart until another tap . Replace it and that will solve the problem .

Refrigerator not cool, freezer ok


Either the freezer continues to freeze up (most likely due to low refrigerant, due to a leak), or there is an obstruction between the freezer and the refrigerator (refrigerators get their cooling from the freezer).

Given that it works after you defrost it, I'm going with low gas. Call a professional to see if the leak can be fixed. If the unit is more than 10 years old, just get a new one.

Kenmore Coldspot Model 106 9557651 stopped cooling and freezing. Mfg date is 09/95.


please make sure that the electricity supply to the unit is in order. after that check wether the thermostat is in working order and if the compressor is running. If everything is in order tou have a gas leak and the unit must be charged with gas.
