Question about Kenmore 64802 Top Freezer Refrigerator
Please HELP! Things are getting ROTTEN in the bottom refrigeration area.
I have had the fridge ~3 or 4 years.
If your freezer is cold but your fridg isn't then you have a defrosting problem. behind the back wall of your freezer you will probably find a very large mass of ice. unplug your ref and using hot water melt the ice. you will need several large towels for this since it will make a mess. once the ice is cleared if you have an ohm meter you can check the defrost element you are looking for continuity( closed circiut) if that tests ok find the defrost termintor(also called a bi-metal defrost) it is about the size of a quarter and is usually located in the top left side of the freezer. It will be clipped to one of the tubes. if it looks like it has popped then it is bad. If the bi-metal looks ok you will need to hook the element back up and go to the control panel in the fridge. looking up at it you will see a small hole and a gear inside that you can turn with a slotted screwdriver. turn it until you hear it click and the fans stop running. if the defrost heater comes on then change the defrost timer(the part you just turned)

You must have an air flow problem between the freezer and fresh food sections. Probable causes:
Bad evaporator fan
Ice buildup between compartments
Defrost failure ice buildup around fan
clogged defrost drain, ice slab formed between compartments.
