Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator
The Kenmore side by side quit mqking ice and then the freezer will get cool but will not freeze?
How old is the unit? Does it seem to have air circulating in freezer? Is the temp in the refrigerator side cold enough? One common thing is for the defrost heater to stop working which causes the freezer to ice up and stop circulating air. If you can put all items in a cooler and unplug the unit for several hours leaving the freezer door open. Plug it back in and see if it starts blowing frost again. That would indicate a bad defrost system. It can be several things but most common are the heating elements. If the defrost timer stops working you get the same results. If this does not produce positive results then it could be a weak compressor or gas leak. Best have a repairman check it or get a new one if it is the compressor.
