Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

1 Answer

Kenmore side/side refrig

My kenmore side/side refrigerater(Model# 253.55693406 with Serial# LA 50121889) is not freezing things and making ice on occasion. I have read the manual and tried to trouble shoot and come up with nothing. I have just replaced the filter cartridge at the end of June. Our house was built in 2002. Inside the fridge is says Manufactured 01-05. Any help would be great!!

Thanks!!

Kevin

SOURCE: Kenmore refrig not making ice and top shelf area in refrig not cold

if you are having tempurature issues make sure the fan in the freezer is operating. it should be on when the compresor is running. this may explain both warm fridge and no ice.

Sounds like it has a defrost problem.  Check for thick frost buildup on the back bottom panel in the freezer first and let me know what you find so I can steer you in the right direction.  Also, give me the entire model # from the sticker inside fridge.

SOURCE: Kenmore refrigerator (model 106.78187891) leaking inside

Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.


Your drain tube may be stopped up with ice at the upper end because it drains too slow because it's stopped up at the lower end in the evaporator pan under the unit at the floor. It can get dust and mold in it. Once you get the ice out at the top a little pressure with a turkey baster will usually clear it out. Flushing it out with hot water and clorox may help.
Make sure it drains quick enough to prevent refreezing. . The drain should be located below the evaporator coils on the lower back of the freezer.

Kenmore icemaker


It sounds like the icemaker is making hollow cubes , and the unfrozen water in the cubes , after dumping , freezes and causes the ice shells to stick togather . This is a sign of " not enough water going into the icemaker " . Replace the water inlet valve , behind the refrig , the piece the wall water line connects to , on the refrig .

I have a Kenmore refrig./ model# 363.9741714


The problem is actually not the ice maker itself. The problem is the electric solenoid valve in the rear bottom of refrigerator. If you follow the water line on the back of the unit down to the bottom and replace the valve that it is connected to then your problem will be solved. Hope this helps. Good luck cj2176.
