Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a side by side refrigerator. The freezer is too cold, refrigerator barely blows out cold air.
The problem is with your defrost system. If you remove the back panel of the freezer you will probably find a solid block of frost/ice. This restricts your airflow across the evap coils not allowing air to circulate to the ref side. It could be a problem with your defrost heater, termination, or defrost control. Your termination will be located at the top of the evaporator coils when you remove the back panel you can usually do a visual inspection of the component to see if it looks "popped out or swollen with ice" the heater can be tested for continuity. If the heater ohms out ok then the easiest thing to do would be replace the defrost control and termination. You will need to let the evap coils completely thaw out with a heat gun or by turning the unit off w/ the doors open for 24 hrs before plugging it back in after replacing components.
Also make sure your evaporator fan motor is running in the freezer to pull the cold air over to the fresh food side. If its not running then you probably have a bad evaporator fan motor.
