Question about Refrigerators

Kenmore refridge/freezer just stops working. I

Kenmore refridge/freezer just stopped working. I hear a little sound from the back that sounds like the motor, but freezer nor fridge is cold. Somehow freezer temp on the dial was warmer than recommended temp from manufacturer. Maybe it was hit by accident, but 4 hours ago I readjusted temp but no response from freezer. Did the motor blow or do I need to wait for temp to readjust or do I need to reset the fridge some kind of way.

. Cut everything off for a few minutes then turn it back on and listen for a click from the compressor relay as the compressor tries to start.
Is the compressor motor running.If no check starter/overload relay.
Check to see if the condenser fan at the back underneath near the compressor is running. If no check fan.

Are the condenser coils near there warm or room temp. should be warm

Take your mod number to an appliance parts store and they will sell the parts to fix the defrost system. Most all parts are in behind freezer Panel at the coils.

Amana ABD2533DEB Bottom Freezer - Fridge not working


Sounds like the circulating fan is either gone or is going bad. This problem is hard to diagnose because sometimes the fan will run but not fast enough to circulate the air through the freezer and refrigerator. I would have your repairman look at this or if you have the know how then you can order the fan and replace it yourself.

My refridge and freezer would stop working


there is a saftey overload switch on the compressor when the compressor is over heating it cuts out. when the fridge is turned off it resets the switch. So now the compressor has burned out totally. you more and likely need a new compressor

Refridge and freezer stopped cooling


it is either the start switch on the side of the compressor or the compressor itself.
the buzzing sound is the start switch trying to start the compressor and the click is the overload on the start switch kicking it out.
the start switch is bad or the compressor is pulling too much amps = bad compressor.

Refirdg.


sounds like a defrost problem.  defrost the freezer with the door open overnight and test it again. if it works then you know that is what it is.
what causes a refrigerator to stop defrosting?
bad: defrost timer or defrost heater (in freezer) or thermo switch (in freezer)

Kenmore 106.7687461 about once a week refrig stop, light still on?


Try to locate the defrost timer. It sounds like the defrost timer has an intermittent fault and is not operating as it should. It should be situated in the compressor compartment. It is a white or black box with a little knob protruding from it. When the motor stops again, try turning the little knob on the timer untill you hear a loud click. The motor should then start running again. If it does, the timer is faulty. Replace it.
