Kenmore Elite fridge cools but we noticed the compressor and fan never turn off. Compressor is very hot to touch. Do we need to replace compressor or a relay switch or ...? Thoughts/suggestions?


Newer refrig. Run almost continuous but you could try cleaning the condenser coils, located on back with vacuum and brush also place thermometers in freezer and mid level refrigerator, freezer should run 0 to -8 F and refrigerator 34-37 F. If much lower adj. thermostat up.

The fan you are talking only come on when the compressor is on. If the compressor is on and the fan is not. Feel the compressor to make sure it is not really hot. BE CAREFUL is can be extremely hot. If is you may have a big problem. The compressor could have whats called warped the internal composent do to heat. It is suppose to be warm to a little hot. If the compressor is not that hot and comp is on than replace fan.
As far as the ice maker drippind. The silinoid in the inlet valve may not be closing all the way. Replace inlet.

Freezer works Refrigerator will not cool down


The compressor should be OK this time because you caught it in time. But if the condenser fan stops you need to consider replacing the fan. I have had refrigerators do fine until the fan motor warms up and you are away, it stops. Don't think you should use the refrigerator until the fan is fixed. Sea Breeze
