I found the parts page but Kenmore does not have the parts listed. You refrigerator was made by Whirlpool and Sears changed the model number. Looking a the sears photos your model does not have a defrost timer but does have an Adaptive Defrost Control located inside the fresh food compartment and behind the control panel where you set temperatures. Defrost failures and compressors stopping as you said in your post are common for the ADC I will continue to try to cross it over to the Whirlpool Model but most likely that is the problem. When an ADC fails strange things begin to happen. Once you start to look for the ADC unplug and remove the top shelf to help lower the control panel. I will return soon to leave you more contact information and what the part looks like. OK your model came with three different styles of defrost controls located in same area. Timer and two different ADC boards. I will need you to look and read the numbers off of what you find. If a timer we can test, defrost boards usually have burn marks on front or back when damaged. Let me know what you find and we go to next step. Is ice building in freezer rear wall or is just lights on? Sea Breeze

Kenmore sidebyside 53552200 stoped cooling and defrosted completly light still works both frezer and refrigerator not getting cold


It could be stuck in defrost. Check your defrost heater, and see, if it is still hot. If it is, then the defrost timer is stuck. When it goes into defrost, everything, stops working, but the defrost heater and light. As long, as the defrost timer is on, nothing else will work, as far as the compressor, freezer fan, and any cooling/freezing.

We have a top freezer Kenmore refrigerator which is at least 12 years old. It is cooling intermittently. It will cool everything just fine for three or four days and then it will defrost completely.

Kenmore fridge leaks water on floor and then stops cooling. Tech said it needed heater/defroster and would cost $500. Does this sound right.


Ah no. If the fridge was not defrosting then water would not be leaking out.
It sounds like the defrost timer is not completing it's cycle. You may need a new defrost timer.
The cost of a new timer, call out, fitting and testing could be around $375

Kenmore won't cool down.


I you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model

The refrigerator side is not cooling and the freezer side is working fine. Two weeks ago this same problem occured and I moved everything to my backup frig and allowed the kenmore to defrost over night....


it indicates the problem with defrost timer.actually the defrost timer sends the command to defrost the ice formed inside the tube after every particular time interval.if the timer is faulty.it wont defrost at all and the ice will keep clogging the tubes and so some sections of fridge wont get cooled due to clogged vents until its manually defrosted. to fix this problem you will have to get the defrost timer replaced.this will definately solve the issue.
thanks.

Water was leaking out of the freezer so I cleaned the ice build up on the freezer and now the frigerator is not cooling. I have a Kenmore side by side


check and make sure the timer is not stuck in defrost mode. if you can turn the timer by hand past the current point it should advance past the defrost cycle and begin cooling. The timer is usally found near the bottom of the refrig located in the front side.
