What you didnt state was whether you had cold air blowing when the damper opened up. If you did, then the problem will be with the damper assembly itself, or the control board, which is what you would adjust to change temperatures. This microswitch you mentioned, was this on the control board? then the control board is the problem. If you did something with the damper assembly, then that might be the problem.
If you dont have any cold air blowing when you opened the damper door, then airflow is your issue, and you will have to include more symptoms for a refrigerator repair diagnosis.

The freezer is working just fine but the refrigerator is not cold at all


CHECK THE FREEZER FAN MAKE SURE ITS RUNNING AND IF THE BACK WALL OF THE FREEZER IS FROSTED UP YOU HAVE A DEFROST PROBLEM. I ONCE FOUND SOMETHING FELL BEHIND THE BASKET SO THE DOOR DIDNT SHUT ALL THE WAY, CHECK THIS AS WELL

Bottom frezzer is working but fridge is not blowing cold air


Refrigerator gets cold air from freezer compartment. Either the air flow is blocked by food items or ice, or the recirculating fan is not working.

The most common failure is that the freezer coils get all iced up becuase the defroster timer, defroster thermostat, or heater has stopped working.

When it's running, you should feel cold air blowing out of the vents that are in the fridge, otherwise, the 'air tower' (air vent) is blocked with ice.

If you manually defrost the whole thing, and it runs fine for a day or so, then it's not defrosting properly. If you manually turn the defroster timer, and you don't hear the scorching/hissing/gurgling of the defroster working, then that would confirm a fault in the defroster circuits.

Based on the following thread, it's probably a bad defrost thermostat.

Kenore bottom freezer


The drain pan is located at the bottom in front of the compressor you should be able too see it when you take the toe kick off. If you go to www3.sears.com you can look at a picture of the unit just put in your model number make sure you put the number in as 596.72914200 that period is important you will need too look in the compressor section of the parts breakdown.

This unit uses the cold air from the freezer to cool the fridge, you will find that the air duct has frozen up, completly defrost overnight with the doors open, this should rectify fault. Regards Advisor
