To manually defrost just unplug unit from power outlet for 12 hours,it will automatically defrost.But if these problem is occurring again n again then issue is with defrost assembly parts,the defrost timer,the thermostat and temp sensor in freezer section causing the problem.

Continuous beeping


Either any door is not closed properly or door sensor is not working,its not sensing the door closed.Or the problem is no defrost.The defrost is causing over ice in fridge or freezer section.

Reset the refrigerator by disconnecting it from wall outlet for 12 hours,then reconnect and see if still the same problem is there.

On some cases its issue with fan not working.There are two fans,one in freezer section and one in fridge section.If either of the fan is not working the controls will flash.

Fridge section not cold, freezer section o.k.!


Normally, the cold is only generated in the freezer compartment, and then the cold is pulled or pushed throuch cooling tubes from the freezer section to the refrigerator section. So if your cooling tubes become blocked by ice (usually caused by a defrost circuit failure) then the freezer will seem to work fine but the refrigerator section will not receive the cold air it should.

Suggest you remove the food from the freezer section, then remove the shelves and then the back panel of the freezer. If there is a lot of ice on the evaporator then you should manually defrost the unit. Unplug it from the wall and use a hair dryer to melt the ice. There will be an entrance to a cooling tube right below the evaporator make sure the you keep blowing the hot air from the hair dryer down than tube until you can feel it in the refrigerator section.

If there was ice, you also need to troubleshoot the defrost circuit and find out which component failed. It is normally made up of the defrost heater, defrost thermostat and defrost timer and troubleshooting methods can be found in the tips section.

NOTE: There will be a lot of water to deal with when you defrost your freezer so make sure you are ready to handle it with buckets and large sponges or a wet/dry vac.

Stop cooling every 5 days I defrost manual GSS201ETCBB


Does the freezer / fridge door close good? Check the hinges. Also check the seal and the amount of food stuff you may have close to the door. If you have an ice maker make sure you have it secured inside the freezer section.

It sounds like something is keeping the freezer door open or from closing good.

The bottom freezer of my Kenmore Refrigerator works fine but the top refrigerator compartment no longer cools? Thanks


All the cooling happens in the freezer.The refer section relys on a fan to blow cool air into it.When you open the freezer you should hear a fan running.If you hear the fan running, close the freezer door and open the refer door. Look for the vent/area where the air comes in.Put your hand in front of it.If little or no air is coming out it could be a sign of an icing/defrost problem restricting the air to the refer section.
It will take a tech with the right tools to find the exact problem.
If the fan is not running you will have to unplug the unit and remove the back of the freezer section from the inside and make sure ice is not keeping it from turning.If it is free of ice then replace the fan motor.

GE Side By Side not cooling on refridgerator side.


Look on the back panel inside the freezer for ice beginning to show. Most times when this happens the fresh food section is the first to notice. Your refrigerator has a control board on the back. If not defrosting the air flow to the fresh food section is greatly reduced. Let me know, Sea Breeze

Kenmore elite 596 73503201 no cooling in top compartment


if the freezer is getting cold the problem is due to the cold air from the freezer not getting into the refrigerator. There are several things that can cause this problem. The coils in the freezer icing up and not defrosting properly is one of the things that can cause the refrigerator not to get cold enough. Another problem is the fan that blows the cold air from the freezer compartment into the refrigerator, not working. When the compressor is running open the refrigerator's door and push the switch that makes the light go out. You should hear the fan blowing the cold air from the freezer into the refrigerator, when this switch is pushed in. If the fan is working then you will need to find what is blocking the air flow. Iced up coils are a common problem. The icing problem can be due to a defective defrost timer or something defective in the defrost circuit. Click here for more information. Check for these problems and let me know what you have found.

Kenmore Elite model 73503201- FRIDGE DOES NOT COOL, FREEZER WORKS


Look in the back of the freezer, there will probably be a metal panel with a plastic vent on top.

Look through the vents in the metal panel, and you should see the shiny metal fins of the evaporator. If the fins or the vents are plugged with frost, that is your problem. The freezer will stay cold because a small amount of cold air will be forced through the frost but that will not be enough to make it up to the refrigerator portion. You can defrost the unit by removing the metal panel and allowing the frost to melt. Careful use of a hairdryer can speed up this process. This will likely be a temporary fix. The root cause of excessive frost can be caused by a bad door seal or a defective defrost circuit.

First check that the door seal is good by closing the door on a dollar bill at several points around the door, both on the freezer and refidgerator door. If you can pull the bill out with no resistance, the door is not making a good seal. Inspect the seal and make sure there isn't anything stopping the door from closing such as food, or a shelf not pushed in all the way.

If the door seal is good, the defrost system is likely defective. The defrost system has three main parts, the defrost heater, thermostat, and timer. If either one of the parts fails, the freezer will plug up with frost every few weeks. If you can troubleshoot this by manually starting the defrost cycle. Let me know if you would like this procedure.
