Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
The first thing to check with the refrigerator on and running, is to see if the fan in the freezer is blowing. If not, remove the rear panel, and inspect, and replace if needed.
There is another fan motor on the bottom back of the machine, next to the compressor. Check it for running as well.
If there is frost or ice building up on the back wall of the freezer, the defrost system has failed.
Would need the complete model number from you to go forward.
If none of these things are an issue, then it is in the sealed system.
Is the machine under 5 years old ??
The compressor could be at fault, or refrigerant could have leaked out which would require the need for a service tech.
However, on the compressor itself, there is a small box containing the relay, overload, and on some models a run capacitor.
If you cannot hear or feel the compressor running, these items can be pulled of the compressor and taken to an appliance parts house for testing. Replace any defective components.
This is a general outline for trouble shooting. Feel free to post back with any additional info you have, including the complete model number.
