It should be between 25 and 30 psi and the high side about 160 psi (only with the r134 refrigerant).

There is a low refridgerant pressure switch, and a high refridgerant pressure switch. Either can cut the power to the clutch. You will have to check the pressure in the system to know for sure.
The electrical part in the clutch could be bad. You could run jumper wires to the clutch connector to see if it will engage. If not, its the clutch. If it does engage, then more than likely your just low on refridgerant, and possibly have a tiny leak.

Ac not cooling


hello, These cars have issues with the valve inside the conpressor going bad and it wont pump the froen like normal, if you have access to a guage set watch the pressures, the low side pressure should be below 50 while compressor is running and the high side will be realitive to outside temp but somewhere around 225 to 275. if not and the low side is high, and the high side is low then the compressor needs replaced. Hope this helps.

We have a Kenmore side by side refridgerator and need a replacement water filter. Where do we buy one?


Sear would have them for sure. But places like Lowe's and Home Depot usually stock the common ones.

Why doesnt the water and ice work on my side x side kenmore refridgerator


1st-Make sure you have water entering the unit. 2nd- If you have recently replaced the water filter- make sure it is properly installed. When you press the water dispenser, you should be able to hear the water valve energizing. If all fails, your best resource is to have a Sears tech service the unit specially if Ice-maker continues Not to function. It might be costly but they warranty the work without any stories.

Kenmore Refridgerator/Freezer does not work.


check your damper vent door located between the fridge and freezer and make sure its opening up to let cold air into the fridge,also check the evaporator fan motor and make sure its operating to blow the air around the inside of the unit

Air conditioning problems...air flow nothing cool


You need to double check the refridgerant charge - system holds anywhere from 2 1/2 to 3 pounds of R134a refridgerant. If you are sure refridgerant charge is correct I suspect it is a low side pressure cycling switch problem. Located on the passanger side towards the back of the engine on the silver accumulator - unplug connector; jump the two terminals together - if a/c compressor clutch comes on and stays on replace the switch.

Need to charge a/c cant find port


Keep following the refridgerant lines until you find the low pressure connector. Sometimes it is tucked away in a difficult place behind the engine near the firewall. Make sure you've found the low pressure connection. DO NOT try to force refridgerant into the high pressure connection.

That is usually caused by either lack of airflow through the outdoor coils. (Dirty coils, need cleaning)
Bad defrost board. (needs to be diagnosed with multimeter and extensive explinations and/or experience to be sure)
Low refridgerant, causing premature freeze up and in turn causing frequent defrost cycle. (Recharge to proper pressures with proper refridgerant type. Requires EPA certification for use of refridgerant, you would also need refridgerant guages, temperature reading device, and refridgerant.)

Fridge does not stay cold


If the compressor is running continually, could be short of gas , or a compressor problem, ie not pumping properly,make sure it has plenty of ventilation
