SOURCE: Kenmore Elite Bottom Freezer Mod. #795 75544401

The unit was built bt LG. It is a computer controled unit and the timer is built into the main control board on back of the unit. However, the most likely cause of the broblem is the defrost terminator located on the evap on the upper right hand corner. Also, try unpugging the unit it will reset the computer board. You will also have to defrost the unit.

SOURCE: samsung model # rs2630sh side by side fridge. center strip is hot

I had the same problem, and it was the condenser fan motor. I ordered mine from www.partstore.com. It was half the price of sears.
I would suggest ordering the 2 "plastic bushings" for front and back of motor. I was able to reuse mine, but for a few dollars more it's worth it.

This is normal. There is a heater in this panel to stop condensation sweating between the doors.

too defrost just open the doors for a day with the unit unplugged. as far as why it is frosting up check door seals make sure they are all good and seal it up well and that should take care of it.

Without the model number I'm not sure how to answer your question. Does your model have fans that blow warm air on the outside bottom or a front kick plate? What is your model number? Kenmore has model numbers like this example=> 123.3214567 If the fan has a restriction that causes a lack of airflow it can cause the hot Freon liquid that normally flows around the Yoder Loop inside edges of the freezer door to prevent frost buildup to become very hot because the condenser fan is defective or coils are dirty with dust restricting airflow. If the outside is hot you may have a defective condenser fan motor. That will cause the freezer to ger hot. I am here should you want my assistance....Sea Breeze

Inside refrigerator strip between the freezer and refrigerator


The condenser fan motor at the back near the compressor is either dirty or not running at proper speeds. Clean the coils for air flow over compressor and if the fan is not running replace the fan.

Just moved Kenmore s/s co;d spot. edges are now hot


This is caused by a failed condenser fan motor. Since it was recently moved, I suspect the fan blade has been blocked from spinning. Pull the fridge out and remove the cardboard cover near the floor. See the fan? Check for obstructions. If there are none and the fan is not spinning, reach in there and give it a whirl with your finger. It may spin right up, it may not.

If all else fails, you'll need to replace the fan motor. Write back with the model number and I'll get you part numbers and step you through the repair. Deal?

Freezer stopped freezing


It is possible that the fanmotor in the freezer compartment is faulty which would cause a freeze up and prevent the air from circulating.

I have a Kenmore side by side fridge


check the freezer compartment at the back wall. see if there is frost build up at the back.
sounds like a fosted evaporator to me.

check also the evaporator fan in the freezer section if it is running.

if not, then there is your problem.
