You kenmore may be held up in defrost . you ll nead to lokate the timer and first try turnig it with a screw driver. sugjest it may be lokated in behind the covers at the rear of the food compartment .

amana is a totaly diferent unit excepy the 9 year old model . lokate you timer as well but you say the compressor runs. if the copressor runs and there is no cold then the must be eather a leak of refrigerant total loss . or inoficient compressor. eather case the fridge this problem is way to expensive to repair and out of woranty. sorry.

kenmore if the timer wasnt the problem now you look at the temp control . it is the one that actualy has an off position. you can try a hard tap with the handle of a screw driver and see if the compressor starts , if not you have to olm it out and see if it has condinuity in the on posision. hope this helps

Freezer ok, fridge not cooling


That could be the motor up in the freezer is not working or it could be a defrost problem. If you see frost on the back side of the freezer that is most likely a failed defrost circuit. If you cannot hear the fan motor or possibly a fan switch mounted in the door jamb. Sometimes the drain can stop p and water puddles between the top and fresh food bottom. Forms a slab of ice and blocks the cold air from getting to the fresh food section.

My kenmore fridge model 56723 is not cooling that is the fridge side. the fan is spinning very well but the compressor is very hot. funny enough the freezer appears to be cooling okay


Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

Sorry to hear about your problem. Sounds like you have a defrost issue. Hence your unit is not defrosting. All of this apply's if your freezer side has ice on it. If not. you have other issues, this does sound funny, but this is why your refrigerator side is warm, or not cooling.

Here is a list of some things that can go wrong.
1. Defective heat coil
2. Defective defrost timer
3. Defective defrost sensor
4. Defective Fan
5. Defective compartment inlet damper (on some models)

You should call a service company to resolve your issue.

Since I tried to help you, Please help me and Rate/Vote on the response. Thanks

My Kenmore side by side Refrigerator Model No. 253.55679403 will not freeze or cool, ice is melting and food is thawing. Light comes on and I can hear a fan or something, but I'm n ot sure. Can you help?


if you hear a fan in the freezer section when the door is open. feel the bottom of the fridge for hot air blowing. if you dont feel any hot air at the bottom, the condenser fan is the problem. if you do feel hot air then you have a defrost issue.

Kenmore model 57029 side-by-side refrigerator not working


If freezer is icing up, you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, ie 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

Stopped cooling and freezing


check that the condenser fan is working and condenser is clean.. check that the evaporator fan is working may have to push switch in to make it run. if ice is visible behind rear freezerwall you do have a defrost problem find defrost timer and with a flat head screwdriver turn it until you hear a click and everthing shuts down. if yoou hear ice cracking you have a bad defrost timer(very common failure)you may have problem in the defrost heater but you might find that a little over your head and a repairman might be the cheapest way to go, because buying parts can be expensive and they are not returnable
