It sounds like you may have toasted one of the starting componets. Either the start relay or the start capacitor has probably failed, causing the compressor to try to start, and then kick off on overload. Hope this helps

Kenmore coldspot refrigerator 71192100 not cooling or freezing. Fan is running.


This is a common problem with refrigerators. The first thing that you want to check is the relay and overload on your compressor. I know this blog is about an LG refrigerator but it will be the exact same way on your Kenmore.

What do I need to fix a cycling compressor fan in my Kenmore refrigerator?


The compressor fan is powered by the same contractor/relay as the compressor. It should run the same time. If it is stopping, then either an electrical problem exists or the bearings are dried up and it overheats and the internal thermal safety is kicking it out.. You could try lubricating the shaft of the motor but I suggest replacing it.

Re: Kenmore Plasmaire air conditioner; suddenly stopped working during night. Motor will initially turn on but no air coming through, then will stop


Most likely you have a bad fan,did you have a storm or lighting strike or power drop / outage .
These type of things can cause trouble with a weak electrical part - not know the age of the Unit - you claim it happen in the middle of the night - if the fan Humms and cut outit could be a cap. that helps you fan start - but the fan is damaged if it tryed to start time and time again . Call service if the unit is worth it .
