Hi,

first try setting your temperature settings to lower setting, check if your compressor is running you can hear a humming sound. if your compressor is not running try to check relay. if its running, touch the condensers at the back of your refrigerator if its cold their is leak on your system and need to be repaired by qualified technician.

  • If the compressor is not running but you do have power to the refrigerator, there may be a problem with one or more of these:

  • The compressor
  • The Thermostar
  • The overload, relay, or capacitor
  • The defrost timer
  • The condenser fan motor

Yes, and if you turn the thermostat colder and the thermostat is in good condition it will. You model was made with a mechanical thermostat with Freon filled probe. You may need to close the cold air flow to bottom during extreme cold days and redirect the thermostat probe closer to the freezer opening but it should work. My refrigerator worked fine in ten inches of snow last year and temps in the teens. Thanks, Sea Breeze.

Kenmore Elite bottom freezer refridgerator


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.
