Question about Kenmore 56549 / 56542 / 56544 / 56546 Side by Side Refrigerator
The problem is most likely the defrost timer. I don't have your model number so I am going by what I can find about a Kenmore Elite.
The defrost timer is located most times insid the fresh food compartment and behind theconteol panel. Usually there is a hole that you can put a flathead screwdriver through and slowly turn the timer clockwise until the refrigerator compressor and fans stop. Let it stay like this for about 25 minuites until the compressor restarts. During this time the refrigerator should be in defrost. Open the freezer and listen for crackling and sizzling noise caused by defrost. If the compressor does not restart turn again clockwise and this will restart. If you nee the defrost timer here is a link below.
