Question about Kenmore Elite 22.4 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator with Adjusta Cube Ice Maker
My fridge will not cool. The freezer cools fine but the digital display to adjust the temp for both the fridge and freezer does not work. When I plug it in the fridge stays ambient temp while the freezer goes down to 3 degrees. I did replace the circuit board that sits inside of the digital display unit.
kenmoore model 76523 , ss bottom freezer. this unit is about 2 years old. suddenly the refrigerator completely stopped cooling but the freezer is fine, the lights work correctly but the digital display does not change temp control on any settings. I disconnected the power for an hour, i was then able to change all control settings but the refrigerator still not working. then after an hour the controls would not adjust anymore only display numbers and temp. would alarm .note; the freezer works but unable to adjust freezer controler. temp. did show as freezer cooling.all coils are frost free and clean.
I just went through this with my refridgerator and actually posted one of the questions. Here is what I found ........
In the freezer compartment behind the panel there is an evaporator fan which pulls cold air from the freezer and pushes it up into the refrridgerator compartment. If the fan is not working it is one of three things.. 1) there is so much frost in the fan area the fan blade is stopped and cannot push the cold air into the refridgerator compartment or the air channel is blocked. 2) there is no electricity going to the fan (usually tied to the door switch of the refirdgerator compartment, and 3) the motor is dead and will have to be replaced.
Solution to #1 - defrost but there is another problem in the "frost-free" part of the system which must be addressed or the frost will return and it will happen again in the future.
Solution #2 - check to see there is power to the fan. (most are 110VAC but some are 100VDC. Use a meter and check)
Solution #3 - If there is power, the motor is dead. Replace the motor. Be aware that AC and DC motors are different and replace per manufacture's specifications.

then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling,
then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not
