Question about Kenmore 25.1 cu. ft. Side-By-Side Refrigerator with Rotating Dispenser System
My refrigerator is not staying cold on the refrigerator side. The freezer side works great. There seems to be a pink, red fluid leaking from under the refrigerator side. Is this related? Thanks for your help. model # 469 5547 We bought it sometime in 1996.
Loklok...no, I don't think so. The only fluid in refrigerators is an oil which is sealed in the cooling system and we know you are cooling. Your fridge may need a full defrost. This occurs because you may have left items uncovered and the moisture condensed in the cooling coils. It could also be the result of improperly sealing doors caused by dirt/ bad gaskets or the like. Best thing to do: shut it off, open the doors and let it defrost fully for a day. Clean the condenser coils under the unit with a long brush. Dry out as best you can and restart. You'll likely be okay. Make sure your freezer side is at about 0-5 above...refrigerator side 35-45. Use a regular thermometer and leave the door closed for at least an hour. (Do these measurements a day after you've restarted.)
