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

1 Answer

Kenmore freezer and fridge is not cold - not frost build up - compress anf fans are all running

Kenmore side-by-side refrigerator model 596.57587791 got a cooling problem. I opened the defrost panel and didn't see build of frost or ice. Both ( evap and cond) fans are running. The compress is also running without stop for hours. Every six or so hours the defrost timer kicks and clears the one or two line of coils with a frost. I don't know what other checks you could suggest that I should make?

    bobotfel,

    how do I check for oil traces?

    by system resticted, do you mean air circulation blocage? I see both fans are running. air is flowing through the vent, but is not cold.

    I called sears service # and they say they will charge 60 to come and see or 250+ for service/parts and 1yr warranty. I told hem I will get back to them soon.

You need a qualified technician for this problem.
- Your unit may have leaking try to check for oil traces.
- The system maybe restricted, system reprocess is needed for this unit.
- If the unit is no frost try to check if there is an air circulation inside the unit. If no air is present then check your fan motor inside.

    - Try to look at the back of the unit at the compressors side check the piping for oil traces.
    - Restricted system means, restrictions in the flow of refrigerant inside the pipings specially at the capillary the smallest pipe in the system and replace with liquid line filter. The system should flush with nitrogen to remove the restrictions.

possibly frosted up at the air door between the fridge and freezer, or the fan in the freezer is not pushing cold air into the fridge side, if you can not hear a fan running in the freezer when the fridge is running (compressor on) then change out the fan

I have a Kenmore side by side fridge


check the freezer compartment at the back wall. see if there is frost build up at the back.
sounds like a fosted evaporator to me.

check also the evaporator fan in the freezer section if it is running.

if not, then there is your problem.

Kenmore fridge


First we need to see if the compressor is running.  Pull the fridge out take off the lower panel on the back and see if you can hear it running.  Also, need to know if freezer fan and fan by compressor is running.  Check for thick frost build up on back panel in freezer.  Let me know what you find.

what to you mean by defrosted fridg. was frost built up in freezer>? check freezer for frost build up and if fan blowing, check condenser make sure clean, and fan blowing, check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, freezer control should be in the middle setting, OR you can try turning that to Warmer freezer allowing MORE air to refrigertor side.
