Kenmore SxS 596.52673200 stopped cooling

Any advice greatly appreciated. Kenmore SxS 596.52673200; 10835442CE; 7 years old. Stopped cooling, but I have power. The lights turn off when doors are closed, there seems no problems with the seals and the problem happened sudden as opposed to gradually. The fan inside the freezer is working and I can feel slightly cool air. The coils inside the freezer are clean with no frost. The coils under the refrigerator are 95% or more clean of dust. The fan next to the compressor behind the fridge is running and the compressor appears to be running. I cannot tell if I hear the compressor due to the fan, but it is quite warm to the touch. The fridge is constantly trying to cool. I quickly pressed the freezer door light switch to try to force it into defrost mode; the fridge will turn off for only a second and then it starts trying to cool again. THANKS!! I am living out of an ice chest and I am hoping I do not have to finance another beast.

You have a refrigerant leak. Your coil in the freezer should be frosted. You're looking at 600 dollars minumum for repair.

My mircowave just stopped working. Is there a fuse that may need to changed. It is only 2 years old. Please help it would be greatly appreciated.

There is an internal fuse but my advice would be to seek professional help as there is a risk of electric shock from some microwaves even when disconnected from the supply.

Kenmore coldspot 106.54563300 is not cooling. First the freezer stopped cooling then the fridge stopped. The fan is still working. Pulled fridge out, compressor was very hot. Is this a relay problem? If...

Not good news, it sounds like a compressor problem. Vacuum clean everthing you can safely get to in order to make it eaiser for the repair guy, (hopefully to save money). How old is the fridge?

Not cooling, ice on evap. coil

After ten years, the defrost coil may be bad. That will allow the evaporator to ice up. Find the defrost timer, check it out first. Some have a manual control.

Refrigerator stopped cooling and freezer stopped freezing

Sounds like it's time for some hands on tech to diagnose this situation! If only I was there i could do it for you!
But I think, no matter how it appears you need service.
Unless the appliance is 10 years old or more.The I'll tell you to replace it and save your money and electric bill too!

Kenmore 73503 Stopped Cooling

Why was the breaker replaced for this circuit in the first place? If it was replaced because it was tripping out the problem may be related to the compressor. In any event the compressor should be covered by warranty. Contact the place of purchase for service.
