Kenmore Coldspot 106.7685110

Thank You for reading this;This fridge is obviously old. February 8th, I pulled it away from the wall and cleaned under and behind.(Never a problem up to then). February 13th a.m., found to be warm inside.Checked under for good Terminal (Block) connections etc., appear okay.Pull Thermostat down, and have current, Jump the 2 wire connectors that go to the Thermostat, Fridge begins to run!(I hear the compressor). Is it possible that just the Thermostat needs replacing? Ohm Meteris "Dead" across Thermostat Terminals. Thank You for any advice -Ed, Indianapolis

There should be a shot circuit or near zero ohms across the two terminals when it is warm and open circuit when at freezer temps. Either the small capilary tube has leaked all of the nitrogen out or the contacts have rusted or corroded. I would say you have found the culprit....

Kenmore elite coldspot model 106.74219400 freezes in the fridge never gets above 5 or 10 degrees and it never shuts off.


there is a flap in the refrigerator side usually near or behind the light bulb the freezer side is thermostatically controlled with the compressor being controlled. On the refrigerator side the cold air comes from the freezer side. when this flap is open the refrigerator will cool continuously, Check the flap or the duct assembly
here is an illustration of the part

Kenmore Coldspot - both the refrigerator and freeze suddenly stopped blowing cold.


If the fridge is running and you can hear it cycling(click, ~5 sec, click), then pull the fridge away from wall, take cardboard access panel off, 1/4" hex head, attatched to the compressor(black dome shaped bout the size of a volleyball) is a relay, take it off, if it sounds like a baby rattler when you shake it, it's bad. Check this first. If yours doesn't have this, then it has a timer. Timer might be bad. Not telling the heater when to turn off. Which is causing the fridge to not continue cooling, obviously.

We have a Kenmore Coldspot Model 106 70102000 with the water and ice maker, it is now leaking inside the fridge itself and we have turned the water off to the ice maker and dispenser. What is causing the...


It is probably your defrost cycle causing this. Obviously if you shut the water line off then it is not coming from there so there is only 1 other place it could be. Every 8, 10, or 12 hours depending on you defrost timer the refrigerator will defrost itself.......the frost melts into water and drains into a pan under the fridge. If the drain is plugged then it will just run into the refrigerator. If you have a freezer on top model then just remove the back wall inside the freezer, it will be a few 1/4 inch screws....If you have an icemaker then remove that too, it will be held on with 3 screws. Just look behind that wall and you will probably see ice at the bottom.....defrost the ice and pour a cup or 2 of water into the drain to make sure it is unclogged. If it is still plugged up then you have to find the clog....either in the back of the fridge behind the lower cover or in the refrig compartment near the back of the roof.

Not good news, it sounds like a compressor problem. Vacuum clean everthing you can safely get to in order to make it eaiser for the repair guy, (hopefully to save money). How old is the fridge?
