Hi Missy Blues,

Your Fridge is in major need of defrosting. This will require you to clear the goods out of your Freezer temporarily. I believe you have a Problem with a component is the Auto defrost Circuit. First of all we need to get the frost out. Once you have the Freezer cleared, Turn the freezer off. Place a Hair dryer in the door of the freezer with its nozzle pointing at the back of the freezer compartment. Run the Hairdryer for a couple of hours blowing into the freezer with the freezer door crak open slightly. This should melt all the frist in your freezer. You will probably need some towels to help soak up water. Once the Freezer is defrosted. Remove the panel inside back of the freezer. The section under the icemaker. You will see a radiator coil. Disconnect power to the fridge. At the bottom of this Radiator coil you will see a device bolted to the bottom of the coil with wires going to both ends. This is your Defrost Heater. REmove it. It is a glass tube with a spring looking heater inside. If the spring parts is burned apart, the heater is bad, and that is your problem. Put all the goods back in your freezer, and turn it on. Go to Sears Parts store and get another defrost heater. You will need the model number of your Fridge. Good Luck

Kenmore 795.7249 bottom freezer refrigerator has cooling mode disabled. With door open I pus the Frig Temp and Ultra Ice buttons at the same time.

you are missing four digits off the end of your model# but typically it s done the same way.

-the fridge door has to be open (you didn't say which one you are opening)

- Then you push the fridge temp and ultra ice for 5 seconds (I've seen people count fast and slow so just hold them both till you hear a beep)

That's it!

Kenmore 795 freezer on top. Freezer working, temp lights on in fridge, but fridge not cooling and lamp out as well.

If the freezer is located above the fridge, the air from the freezer drops into the fridge to create the cooling in the fridge. So what I would look for is a blocked vent from the freezer to the fridge, which is usually located on the top and or back of the fridge inside of cores. You can get a frost or ice build up in there and block the air flow to the fridge, that is usuall the problem. I would also heck the dial for temp control in the fridge, I know my kids have changed it before on me.

What should the temp be for freezer and refrigerator?

dont know model, do know temps. The fridges highest temp is 5deg c, preferably between 1 and 4, if freezer goes above minus(-)18deg c your are in danger zone, there should be a regulator control in the fridge, usually on left or right hand side near front(door)

Our fridge is not keeping cool. both the fridge and freezer stopped working yesterday, then we vacummed it out- the freezer works but the fridge is only at 39 degrees. Help?!!!

If your freezer is working properly.(that is it freezes ice)and frig is at 39 dg then you most likely have a problem with air flow . set thermostat and air control at middle setting and leave there for a few hrs. You should see temps stabilize with some time.

Refrigerator does not cool

If the refrigerator cooling is poor, it may be a problem with the thermostat, the compressor, or the evaporator fan. If ice is accumulating at the back of the fridge, that can also be a reason for poor cooling.

See aso the links below for a more detailed explanation:

Not cooling properly

first the freezer does all the colling for both sides the fridge control just opens a damper door to allow air flow from the fridge if your frezzer is set to high turn it down some and put the fridge on the mid point setting also in the fridge side on the left about halfway down is a vent make sure nothing is blocking it reply with your model number so i can see who made it as kenmore don't make their own appliances and we will go from there

Fridge freezer not cooling from new - buttons not working

Sounds like an air flow problem from the freezer section to the refer section. Check that nothing is blocking the air vents, and that the dampers are operating properly (they control the flow of air). Of course if it's under warranty... call the service techs out.
