Refrigerator not cooling

I have a Kenmore side by side from 1990 that isn't cycling properly. Would stop running intermittently then be ok for a while. I replaced the defrost timer and it was fine for a couple weeks but has stopped again. Any ideas?

Actual model is Kenmore Coldspot # 106.9507682

Freezer side seems to work but the refrigerator side isn't

Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

My 18 year old refrigerator GE model TFX24FG freezer side is not keeping food frozen. Refrigerator side seems to be working normally.

The refrigerator side is at present working properly , but slowly slowly, it will also loose its cooling.This will happen because, freezer side is the side which cools first, then the refrigerator side ( also called as fridge side)., gets cooled.If freezer side is not cooling / freezing properly then fridge side will also loose its cooling ability.------------ And later on both section will loose its cooling.----------- As per the present situation, it indicates problem with compressor or problem with freezer side door not closing properly.---------- Or the temperature in freezer section is not set to proper cooling/ freezing.--------- So first inspect temperature, is it set right? If ok, then check the freezer door , is it properly closed? If ok, then its compressor problem.? The compressor is running non stop, this is indication of compressor problem.---------- Click this link below for more help:--- ----------- Later on both section will loose its cooling. -------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Refrigerator is running, but it does not seem to be cooling. Freezer side seems to be ok. Have cleaned coils.

Not detailed description of your Refrigerator Problem?
1) Frost free system (Heater, Timer, Drain heater) properly not functioning.
2) Evaporative Fan not working (Check Air flow satisfied or not)
3) Compressor properly not working.
4) Thermostat (1,2,3 ) problem. (Rotate high and check)

Comperssor kicks on but quickly cuts off intermittently every 5 minutes on my frigidaire fridge side by side

Freezer defrosted everything fan continues to run but will not freeze. Compressor is cycling enough to keep refigerator section cold. 106 Series Kenmore. Turned up thermostat to keep fridge cold and a shorter intermittent compressor cycle run
