1 Answer

Kenmore side by side

I don't know the model number. Fridge stops cooling. The coils behind the panel in the freezer are frozen solid. I defrosted but it freezes up again a week later. Is this going to cost a fortune to fix??

Make sure the coils underneath and backside don't have large amounts of dirt on them. Check door seals with a dollar bill, go around the entire door. close the bill inbetween the seals and tug on the bill, if it pulls out to easy the door needs adjusting or seals need replaced. let us know what you found thanks

My refrigerator is not cool, but the freezer works fine.


Sounds like a defrost problem.

It is a defrost problem since the ice that freezes on the freezer coils
is not being melted by the defrost system.
There are three components to a defrost system- a heater,heater thermostat, and a timer unless you have a defrost electronic card.
Its best handled by a Technician butyou could possibly do it by taking your model number to the nearest appliance parts store and asking for the parts. They are mostly located in freezer ,behind back panel on freezer coils.except the card which is usually located in ref The parts store will have info Also check evaporator fan in freezer If this was helpful please rate me
Thanks for using fixya

Maytag side by side. Coils froze solid, no cooling in fridge or freezer. Replaced heat coil and thermostat assly., as well as adaptive defrost control (circuit brd.). Still don't seem to be able to...


Hi Rob,

The problem in your case is most probably with the defrost thermostat.

It can be found on the evaporator i.e. freezing coils , it's round disc like with two wires.

If you get this replaced with a new proper working unit ,

Also make sure you replace the defrost timer as well if the problem persists.
Hope this helps ..:)

The freezer is working but the refrigerator is not getting cold


Hi.

Possible faults causing the problem are either a frozen damper fan blades, broken damper motor or a defective defrost system.

If there is no air circulation then problem is likely frozen fan blades, less commonly faulty damper motor. The defrost system may still be responsible, as this fault is often confused with air circulation problem (see below).

If the fault is given by frozen fan blades you will get rid of the problem by simply performing a full defrost (leave unit off overnight).

If the problem is the defrost system, a defrost may temporarily fix the problem, but the fridge will stop cooling again as soon as ice build up comes back, usually after days or weeks from defrost.

The function of the defrost system, located at the back of the freezer firewall, is to prevent condenser coils at the back of the fridge from cooling down and icing up. When the defrost system is defective you get poor cooling, particularly in the fridge section.

You can test if the problem is the defrost system by leaving the unit disconnected or off for 24 or 48 hours.

As said, if problem was the defrost system, then the problem will disappear after full defrost, to come back in a couple of weeks.

Other problems that can cause insufficient cooling are compressor problems, refrigerant leaks, and depending on the model, electronic control faults.

Start doing a defrost for 12 or 24 hours. Cross fingers and hope that the problem was fan blades frozen. You can follow the general troubleshooting illustrated here (the article refers to a different fridge, a Whirpool built Kenmore model, things are not too different on your Model): Kenmore side by side...

Fresh side not cooling


I will assume until you can confirm the model number is near Sears KENMORE ELITE, Model No. 10650594000 But I will need you to double check because Sears always uses a number different than the MFG.
For the moment I need you to remove some things from the freezer and remove the back panel covering the evaporator coils. Look for the coils to be frozen over. If so it could be the adaptive defrost control found inside the fresh food compartment part number 4388932
Or a problem with defrost thermostat or the defrost element. I am here to help, Just let me know, Sea Breeze

Maytag wide by side not cooling. just prior to this frost build up on top of freezer. Compressor not running.


Check to see if you have frost on the back panel of your freezer in your fridge. If you do your coil is frozen over and you'll have to defrost your freezer. I just did mine cause mine wasn't cooling properly on my fridge side. My coil was solid ice.
