Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
Hi I have a Kenmore Two door Refrig Model # 1065026992 9 yrs old.
My ice maker works great. But the dispenser on the door from the inside and the ice maker opening dispenser freezes up like an iceberg after a few days. Someone (not an expert) thought the problem COULD BE that the little black flap door on the dispenser was worn/broke (not sealing properly) and is causing it to freeze up because the outside air to get up into the opening of the ice maker and dispenser. I looked at that little black flap door and it does appear that it is not closing all the way. What do you think? Can this be fixed?
Also is this expensive to fix? Can I fix this myself?
I'm handy when provided proper instruction.
What do you suggest I do?
Thank you so much.
Most likely the defrost timer or Adaptive defrost. Yours has the defrost timer. I want you to open the fresh food compartment and find a small opening through the control panel. The opening may have a plastic plug covering the hole to hid it. Remove plug and turn timer clockwise slowly until the compressor stops running. The compressor should remain off for about 25 minutes. If it does not turn itself back on then turn the timer slowly again to the right/clockwise until it does. If you need to restart the compressor. this way the timer will need replaced.Defrost timer is part number 482493 Keep me informed on your progress, Sea Breeze
