Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have an old kenmore that runs for 15 minutes - quits for 10 minutes - starts circle again. The freezer and fridge both are cold. It is side by side but not sure of the number - it has ice maker (not connected) I live in Mexico so it is a little harder to get service without knowing what might be wrong.

If you remove the lower front panel, you'll see a small cylindrical piece with a flatblade screwdriver slot. Turn the slot with a screwdriver clockwise ONLY until it clicks. do this a couple times. This is your defrost timer and by turning it you may be able to free it up. If not, than it will have to be replaced. This is a quite simple task and can be performed quite easily if you take your time. Good luck, Dana

How old is the fridge? Newer units will run more frequently and make "running" noises.

Kenmore refrigerator Freezer is cold but fresh food side is warm


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

ZFSB26DRESS water runs warm and freezer not staying cold.


It sounds like the condenser coils , the coils by the compressor , need cleaned badly . This (and the compressor cooling fan) , can cause the compressor to cut off on overload (due to the heat) , thereby not circulation refrigerant thru out the freezer coils .
The water line goes from inside the freezer door ( cold ) , under the refrig ( warm ) , then to the inside refrig water reservoir ( cold ) . After that , you should get cold water , until the reservoir is drained of cold water .

We have a Kenmore model 596.71864101 that is probably around 10 years old. The freezer is doing what it should but the refrigerator is not cooling. It did the same thing a few weeks ago, but suddenly...


There is a fan in the rear of the freezer that delivers cold air to the frig. Turn temp control down to make the freezer call for cold, the fan should also turn on, even if the door is open. This is an easy self install if it is the fan.

check to make sure that there is no ice build up in the went in the freezer, best way to fix is to shut off fridge for about 8 hours to defrost and then plug back in, this will help the fridge start cooling again.

REFRIGERATOR IS MAKING A BUZZING SOUND, not cooling


You have one of two problems going on. Your fan is spinning at hitting the sides. Or your compressor is shot which seems to be more the problem and even though it is cold the humming sound is a warning for you that the compressor is shot and it is more affordable to replace the fridge then the compressor. Sometimes compressor can cost more then the fridge.

Kenmore fridge not working, ice cubes wet, freezer frosting up


You may need a new defrost module. The coils ice up when it is not working. This makes the fridge and freezer only a little cold. About 150 to 250 bucks to fix if you call a service person. Under a hundred for the part.

Start any cycle. Dryer runs for 10 to 15 minutes, then stops before cycle is complete. Start again, stops again in 10 to 15 minutes.
