Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

Open Question

Kenmore Elite Model # 253.44393402 - Experienced

Experienced two episodes within 3 weeks where temperature rose and remained high in both freezer and fridge compartments, then cooled back down normal operating temps after a day or two. Found note in manual stating ''The advanced electronic control system in your refrigerator includes additional display modes that service professional scan use to rapidly diagnose performance issues.'' Is it possible to obtain the codes to determine if this is a performance problem? Why is a tech necessary to read a code in a special display mode? Or is the problem maybe with the computer board serving the compressor? By the way, the fridge is 3 years old.

SOURCE: Freezer quits working

Good Day, I live out in Ca. and have only experience temp's like what you guys endure once in my lifetime. But I grew up, with Bart Starr, he was my guy, leading the Pac. in the Ice Bowl. I'm hoping to get one of the guys to add to my comments I'm going to suggest to you, there are many guys more qualified with more experience than I, that might offer more. Sometimes with Refrigerators and Freezers, is that during periods of long cold spells, the appliances can actually NOT produce enough Run-time to sustain the foods inside. In other words, because its so damn cold it will go off and if the thermostat doesn't sense the temp has risen to the point it needs to come back on, it won't. Ice creams, because of the salt content, bread (it has no density) these will be the first foods to be effected. 20yrs ago I remember we have a strip heater... wr49x211 I think it was, to add heat to get the thermostat to cycle back on.... Check around, ask -Re-post and List it.. I want somebody who knows Refer's, Lives and Works in tough weather... that'll get an answer

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite bottom freezer refridgerator

I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........

In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.

Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.

Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)

Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.

Kenmore elite upright freezer model 25326093100


It does sound like the thermostat is acting up. It could also be a defrost timer if it is a frost free model. The timer could be running slow and remaining in defrost longer than it is designed to. Thermostat can get erretic also and work fine sometimes nad then not work correctly another. When it is shut off after cycling off tap the thermostat. if it comes back on thgis could be your problem.

Where is the defrost timer in a kenmore elite model 10654602300


I am pretty sure the defrost timer is built into the 8201528 Temperature Control Board

If you have questions about the defrost control plese call Repair Clinic at 1-800-269-2609, 7 a.m. to midnight ET, 7 days a week They will be glad to answer any questions you may have. As for forcing defrost on your model I am still searching for a Service Manual that covers your model. If you suspect a defrost error on this model I would check the defrost heater and defrost thermostat before changing the 8201528 Temperature Control Board Here is a link to the 106.54602300 User Manual I do know that your model is made by Whirlpool and sold to Sears. You can find the parts breakdown for your model HERE
I will be here to answer any questions you have, Thanks Sea Breeze

Temperature adjust frigidaire ffu2065fw2


Hello Ron Thacker - Often when the temperature is too cold, it is because the temperature control is set too cold/high. Turn the control to a warmer setting and allow several hours for the temperature to stabilize. If the unit does not stabilize within 24 hours, then it could possibly have a faulty thermostat or temperature control. I would personally reach out to an experienced tech that will be able to identify the precise reason.

Hi, Please tell me how to change the temperature on my elite kenmore.


Klay421 --
Which model Kenmore Elite refrigerator do you have? If you have one of the older manual models, the thermostat is located inside the fridge side. If you have a newer model with digital controls you need to press and hold the the ON/OFF button for 2 seconds until the digital displays for temperature for the Freezer and Refrigerator lights. The Up/Down arrows allows you to adjust the temperature. If you are still having problems, write back. -- SWT

check the defrost thermostat , and any temp sensor that can determine the freezer temperature.
