Question about Kenmore Elite 22.4 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator with Adjusta Cube Ice Maker
Sounds like the circulating fan is wearing out, this problem is very hard to diagnose because the fan still spins but not fast enough to circulate the chilled air thru the freezer and refrigerator. The minimum cost for labor and material is around $300.00

Hi: Does it have a water filter? Sears parts is offline at the moment, so I can't tell. Most of the newer models do. The 596.xxx tells me that it was built in the Amana factory for Kenmore. Most likely there is a water filter in the top of the fresh food compartment. It has been growing mold in storage, and the lines too. It's on the upper right side, behind a housing with a tab to release it. Lower the housing and remove the water filter. Did you receive the bypass plug with the ref.? It looks like a large plastic wing nut with the same fitting as the water filter. If so put it in and flush the system with city water. Most city water has chlorine to clean your lines. If you install a new filter without flushing the lines it will remove the chlorine as it's supposed to do, but the lines from the filter wont get clean. If you don't have the plug, buy one. Flush the system and then install the filter. I hope this helps, Jeff

I would check the Freezer Fan as the main point. This fan is very hard to diagnose because the fan will spin but not fast enough to circulate the chilled air thru the freezer and frig. The minimum cost for labor and parts is around $300.00

It appears your damper or damper solenoid has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question
