Madezmom, you have a defrost issue. If your model starts with 106 you more than likley have a bad defrost bi-metal, I will attach a picture of bad one. This sits on the evaporator in the freezer section behind the panel. You will have to remove the shelves and remove the back panel. Defrost the evaporator completely. The part number for the bi-metal is 2196155. See if yours is bulged like the one in the attached photo. If so, that's your problem..Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Freezer doesn't keep ice cream frozen

not being able to keep ice cream is not good, before doing anything ck a few things. make sur e to pull out unit and vaccuum under and behind unit, if it cant breath it cant freeze. check in back by compressor, is the fan running to cool the fan??? if the compressor is on so should the fan be. next id look behind the freezer wall for excessive build up of frost( it might even be buildin up with ice throughthte back wall, inwhich case you have a defrost issue

SOURCE: Kenmore Coldspot w/Ice Maker Not Making Ice

hi LOP7,
In most cases you can easily solve this problem.
step one would be to make sure your freezer is getting cold enough. If you have icecream in your freezer is it frozen solid or is it soft. Most icemakers cycle around 0 degrees and if your freezer is not getting to 0 then it will not cycle and it will not make ice.
Step two would be to make sure you icemake is cycling. To do this simply lift the little shut off arm on your icemaker and wait about an hour then go back to the icemaker and drop the arm down. The icemaker should start going through a cycle. You should notice the arm slowly begin to raise and the ice dispencer fingers will begin to turn. Then you will hear it call for water. You may hear a humm.
If the freezer is cold enough and the icemaker is cycling that only leaves the inlet valve. replace the valve and enjoy the ice.
If the freezer is cold enought and the icemaker does not cycle, then you have a bad icemaker. Simply replace the icemaker and viola.
Third if the freezer is not cold enought 0 defrees. Then you may have a defrost problem. In this case post more info and I will be happy to help. Good luck mca0824@aol.com

If you just removed the ice from the front of the panels there is still a lot ice behind the panels. A complete defrost will be necessary. You may have a defrost problem. If you remove the panels you could check the defrost heater for continuity. if it is good then the defrost thermostat or timer could be the culprit.

Kenmore coldspot(side-by-side) Model:106.56612500,Type2555A;MFG date:Aug.2006. Freezer and Refrigerator Control both at factory preset position(center). Problem:Left frozen section seems colder than usual...


The defrost system is not working. Ours had a sensor go bad that clips on the coils inside the freezer and can tell when their is front. When it is not working the frost just keeps building up because it down not call for the defrost heating wire to ever come on. It could also be that the wire is bad or that the control panel is not responding the the sensor. It sounds liek the issue is no defrost cycle though.

Freezer does not keep ice cream frozen


You are having a problem with one of the three main components of the the defrost system. Look into rear of your freezer to see if ice and frost is beginning to build up on the rear panel. If yes begin manual defrost by unplugging and remove contents of freeze. Even better send me the model number of your Whirlpool. That is how I tell you were the problem began most likely. Look around the door frame and inside the fresh food section sea Breeze

Freezer side will not keep ice cream, popsicles or orange juice frozen. it will make ice in ice cube trays-the ice maker makes very few ice cubes.



If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check
, defrost heater, defrost thermostat.

This is a simple question. What is the average


Not so simple actually. Depends for long lasting, deep freeze, meat ect you want 0 to -4 Farenheit. For Ice cream (non-defrosting) soft 20 to 24 degrees firm 15-19 degreees, hard same as meat. For defrosting models stick with the 0 to -4 as otherwise ice cream and other liquids will actually melt during the warmest part of the defrost cycle. I believe that is a self defrosting model so I'd stick to 0 degrees farenheit average.

Kenmore coldspot not making ice, and not cooling in the bottom


Your refrigerator is frosted up. Remove the inside panel of your freezer. Defrost the ice out of the coils and check the heater and bi-metal. If both are good then your defrost timer is bad. If one is bad replace and you have it fixed. Good luck.
