Fixing...first, I assume that the light is on inside. If so, is the compressor working?...that's a mechanical noise from the bottom of the unit. If you don't hear it, it can be a number of things. If you do hear it, does it work for just a brief period and then click off? Unplug the unit, wait 10 minutes and then plug back in. Then listen for the above click-off. How is the thermostat set? Is it in the normal range? Once you go through these checks, we can see if the problem is among the symptoms outlined or something else.

This sounds like there is a fault in the defrost circuit, so the evaporator is not being defrosted. Alternatively it will be a sensor fault that is reading low and causing the fridge to keep on running trying to reach the desired temperature.

Fridge odor


There are a couple of methods to help remove odors from a fridge. The first is a cookie sheet with baking soda spread across it left in the fridge for several days. The other is something called Activated Carbon. Most stores sell it as a carbon odor filter and it is pretty cheap. It actually works better then the baking soda so I recommend you pick some up and just leave it inside the fridge. You can also put this behind your fridge or wherever you have foul odors. Hope this helps.

Remove back cover in freezer to completely thaw out. Check continuity on defrost heater replace if needed, also replace defrost thermostat, that is probably the problem.

Kenmore 77563 Installed last week and freezer defrosted all the food


The refrigerator & freezer operate using the same system. One system. Your still covered by the warranty and I would suggest calling the installers or store from which it was purchased. The problem may be a faulty fan switch .

Fridge not cool


the coil is frosted over and no air is being pushed to the fridge it may clear up after a few defrost cycles or remove the food from the freezer and allow it to thaw completely (12hrs) the ice behind the back wall takes a long time to thoroughly melt or you will have soild ice instead of frost and then it will never thaw soild ice.

Bottom mount freezer not getting cold enough


You have a failed component or components in your automatic defrost system. This is why you have excessive frost inside the freezer along the back wall. The timer could be stuck in run mode. The defrost thermostat (bi-metal) could be defective or the defrost heater could be open or shorted.
