    5 Second Sears repair service call suggested control panel needed to be replaced. Not sure if that is right since he didn't do much except fiddle with the temperature setting. Compressor turned off - but didn't solve freezing issue.

This refrigerator I have studied for about an hour. There are 2 possibilities. First is part number 2188819 Thermistor and the second is the control board. You did not mention any changes in the digital reading on the control panel so I think it would be worth changing the thermistor. I don't know how old your model is but the price for the control board is very high. The thermistor acts as a thermostat probe and signals to the control board what the temperature are. It's a Whirlpool part so I think that is the brand name before Sears put Kenmore on the front. If you should need me let me know. I'm even in shock at the price of the control board part number 8201660

    Click here to see the thermistor=> 2188819 The control board part number=> 8201660 no one seems to have a photo of yet. It is behind the controls panel in the fresh food section. I don't mind helping you locate the replacement of the thermistor the only trouble is when Sears change the OEM number to their number the repair books get lost too. If you need my assistance let me know here or here=> SEA BREEZE APPLIANCE PARTS at the top of the page, Thanks, Sea Breeze

    OK I see you already knew about the possibilities. But many times when the control board goes bad you will see changes in the logic or the digital numbers on the control go wild or not at all (blank), Hope it's just the thermistor. I believe depending on the age of the refrigerator I would make my decision, Thanks, Sea Breeze

    The thermistor is worth looking into but the control board price is too much for me, I just hope the Service Technician don't take your money. Wish I coud help you better, Sea Breeze

My kenmore trio refrigerator ice maker is not producing ice, inside the fridge my milk spoils but my eggs get frozen any ideas?

Am surprised your refrigerator is 'blowing hot and cold thru the same mouth!. Try turning the power off and keep the doors be open for 12 hrs. Wipe off water under the fridge and turn on power.Good luck.

Milk frozen, not making ice, water dispenser very slow

Hello. begin by turning the fridge to a warmer setting. It could be that the frozen milk is also an indication that the water tubes feeding the ice maker and the water dispenser are either frozen or slushy.

The things in the freezer are not frozen and there is ice in the milk in the refrigerator. It a 6 year old Whirlpool side by side.

You possibly have a 2 part problem. Do a 12 defrost and make sure the product in the fridge is not near the auger (cold inlet vent into the fridge). Fridge gets its frost from the freezer compartment.

Freezer not freezing ice cream and milk

Icecream is a tough call. Some brands have to many artaficial ingredients and that doesnt get solid. What temps are you getting in the freezer? Is everything else frozen solid?

Bad Milk

I think your defrost drain is clogged so the water is draining into floor of freezer. The extra moisture is freezing the damper to the fridge so it isn't getting enough air. Hope this is some help so long after you posted the question.

Freezer/fridge won't get cold enough

Madezmom, you have a defrost issue. If your model starts with 106 you more than likley have a bad defrost bi-metal, I will attach a picture of bad one. This sits on the evaporator in the freezer section behind the panel. You will have to remove the shelves and remove the back panel. Defrost the evaporator completely. The part number for the bi-metal is 2196155. See if yours is bulged like the one in the attached photo. If so, that's your back.
