Kennmore Refrigerator model number 52259100

This is a side by side that the freezer is working and making ice but the refrigerator bottom drawer is freezing but the higher up you go the warmer it gets so the top shelf is not very cool at all

    I have a Kenmore side by side model #106.52202100. The freezer and icer maker are working fine but the refrigerator has some small amount of ice forming by the crisper drawer (at a vent). The overall temperature in the frig is warmer than it should be and seems to be warmer on the top shelve and in the door. I unplugged the refridgerator and and let it set open over night. I also removed the freezer back panel and noticed icy on the bottom right of the coils and had formed in the opening (maybe a vent) along side the icy coils. I plugged in the refridgerator this morning and will let it run while I am at work to see if made any difference.

Is the fan running? Also make sure it is going through defrost cycles. If it is not melting ice during the defrost cycle and dripping into the pan under the unit, it is probably not defrosting. This can lead to the problem you describe. Place all of the food in coolers or another freezer or if you have the room in the fridge side. Unplug the unit and leave the freezer door open for several hours or overnight. Make sure to leave several towels around it as there may be too much water come out for the small pan under the unit to hold. Plug it back in and see if that fixes the problem in the freezer. If so, but the problem returns in a few days, there is a problem with the defrost circuit that will need to be repaired. Knowing this I may be able to talk you through the repair if you can use a multimeter. Let me know...

I have a dual drawer refrigerator Haier Aficionado model C122. It has been working on the 38 degrees that was originally set at. Someone left the bottom drawer ajar and now the alarm is buzzing. I hav


Hello Omie;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.
Bottom drawer & bottom freezers are nightmares. Next time but a side by side or top freezer.
Ok, lets fix this. Using a hair dryer defrost all of the ice around the door. Next, you have a rack and pinion assembly that the drawer rides on. This also is iced up. Defrost the rack & pinion.
When you close the drawer you will probably have a gap on one side. This is caused from the ice build up and the rack and pinion jumping a tooth.
Where the side is that has the gap, you must lift the drawer and jerk hard towards the gap to jump a rack and pinion on the opposite side. You may have to repeat this. It is a strong arm operation.

Why is bottom drawer of refrigerator freezing shut


Hi,

You have a clogged drain in the freezer from the defrost system. You will need to clear out all the ice, remove the rear wall and clear the drain under the evaporator as well. Failure to remove all the ice from the drain system will cause this issue to return. Good Luck

Top drawer of freezer seems to work but large bottom drawer not freezing even at -5degrees. Can this be fixed?


This problem seems to be two sided. A refrigerator defrost it is supposed to take the water from defrost down a pipe located behind the freezer rear wall to a pan below the refrigerator where there is a fan blowing warm air over the water to evaporate back into your home or business. If that drain is blocked your refrigerator will accumulate a large block of ice and frost behind the rear panel of freezer and temperatures will warm considerably in fresh food compartment and freezer. Here is one site I want you to read over=> Leaking Refrigerators Just What may Be Happening and here=> Leaking Refrigerators here is a link to a service manual=> LFX25960xx Service Manual Let me know if this service manual is close enough to your model number. At this point I am looking for air blockage behind the rear panel of freezer. If air is being blocked by ice and frost you can use a hair drier to help speed you up while melting ice. If drain is blocked use whatever you can to open the drain line mentions on the links I sent you to and let me know what is found, Thanks Sea Breeze

Door Panel Locked
Press Door Alarm and Freezer "-" at the same time, then release Door Alarm but continue pressing Freezer "-". You will see PE _ _ _ _.
Press Freezer "-" until PE # # # # shows on the panel.
Using Freezer "+" to move cursor, Refrigerator "+" and "-" to change numbers, bring all numbers to "0". Press Freezer "-" until PE and numbers blink. Unplug refrigerator for 45 seconds, never beyond 1 minute or you'll have to start over.
Look inside refrigerator door and locate the serial sticker. To the right of the serial number is the CODE ####. Plug in your refrigerator.
Press Door Alarm and Freezer "-" at the same time, then release Door Alarm but continue to press Freezer "-". Using the same method as above, enter the four digit CODE number you found on the serial sticker. Press Freezer "-" until PE and numbers blink. You have just reset your panel. Unplug for 45 seconds. Plug in refrigerator and you should now have full use of your door panel.
This unit has a built in safety timer mechanism. If it dispenses water for two minutes, it assumes it is flooding your house and shuts the panel down. If you are filling a pitcher of water, just stop dispensing halfway through to reset the safety timer.

Everything freezes in the refrigerator bottom drawers - no matter what we set the temp in the freezer or refrigerator, everythign freezes.


Make sure the vents from the freezer to the fridge are not blocked by ice etc. One is at the bottom and one at the top. The on at the top is adjusted open or closed when you adjust the fridge temp. Make sure it's working. Also make sure the fan in the freezer is circulating the air from the freezer through the vent at the top.

Fan runs constantly, freezer ice melting, bottom drawer in refrig


  • If your refrigerator temperature is closer to 35 degrees, try turning the temperature up slightly.


  • If you find that the temperature varies a lot from the top shelf to the bottom (where it is coldest), try putting produce and other sensitive products on a higher shelf.


  • If the temperature is too low and you can't make it warmer by adjusting the thermostat, you probably have a defective thermostat. If so, you need to replace it, because they cannot be repaired. Other possible problems are a leak in the sealed (refrigerant) system, cold air migration (in side-by-side models) or a defective air damper. These problems can be quite difficult to locate and correct, we recommend you contact a qualified appliance repair technician.
