Question about Kenmore 65812
I've read the other posts, but they don't have the same symptoms as my fridge. The local repair guy I called said the model I quoted didn't exist, that I must have it wrong, but since I read it off the plate inside the fridge, I know it's right and he just isn't very good. It's a top-freezer Kenmore 106 Model 72102100, manufactured in May 2001, bought from Sears. I noticed yesterday it seemed a bit warm and assumed it was because we had put so much food in it (Ziploc bags full of the 25 pound turkey we cooked up, 5 pounds apples, bag of oranges, 2 heads lettuce, juice, water pitcher, birthday cake, 2 pies, huge thing of rice, PB, jellies, condiments, etc.) that the cool air wasn't able to circulate. I took out the water and apples to give room. The light comes on and the fan runs - I can see it when I pulled off the cardboard panel at the base on the exterior backside. This morning it's still warm and more CRITICALLY -- the freezer is warm on top!!! The cold air used to come out of the plastic unit in the middle back of the freezer - it was actually warm! Yes, there was food against that unit, but why would that make it warm? Things were already thawing. As a new mom, my freezer is full of irreplaceable breastmilk - something that I cannot buy and that my baby with allergies absolutely needs since he cannot take formula. Please please please can someone help??
Next time if you notice that the bottom is cold and the top is warm make sure the evap fan motor is running,if the fan isn't running and you can check it by opening the freezer door,you should hear it blowing around, heat rises so the top will be warmer than the bottom,if you changed the evap fan motor you should be fine,i just worked on a kenmore that was totally warm,it was the start device so the compressor wasn't running but the evap fan was still working so if the machine was getting cold but the air wasn't moving because you had a bad fan motor you should be fine.

Behind the back panel that you pulled off is where the compressor is. on the left side of the compressor is where the relay/overload is plugged in. its gone bad. if you touch the compressor it will either be really really hot or room temp. unplug it let the compressor cool and replace the relay/overload to fix your problem
