Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
Checked door seal w/dollar bill and pulls out with some resistance. I reset the fusebox and got ice cream hard, but today is soft.
Sounds like its thermostat may be faulty at the very least and has a too wide sense range, I assume it has been defrosted of ice build up and the sensor probe is in contact with its metal freezing plate and not dangling these can be changed if faulty.
Failing this it may have a faulty compressor or motor if so then it would be a new machine as related costs would make it not worth it.
Hope this helps.........

Your Refrig/freezer should be set as follows:
Refrigerators: 36 to 40 degrees. Ideal temp is 37 Fahrenheit. Note: A temp above 42 degrees promotes bacteria.
Freezer: temp should be -5 to 6 degrees Fahrenheit. Ideal temp is 0 degrees.
Then check the door seals around the edges to see if any splits, tears or cracks have messed up the seal. This will cause your compressor to constantly run as it's trying to cool off the warm house is being sucked into the freezer (or Refrig). A sure sign the door seals are damaged is lots of ice in the freezer door area or water pooling in the bottom area of the refrigerator.
Wait about 4 hrs after you readjusted the Refrigerator/Freezer settings so everything settles down. If you still have problems then the coolant may need to be serviced (topped off) or the motor serviced/checked.
Don't procrastinate because a water heater and Refrig/freezer are the 2 largest energy users in your home- they run 24 hrs a day.
Hope this helps...
