Refrigerator and freezer not cooling properly

I have a side by side Kenmore with the freezer on the bottom. Both started to warm up ao I first cleaned the coils. That worked for one day. After that it started to warm up again. When it is running I can hear the condensor ( I think) come on intermitttently for a few seconds and then click off over and over. I unplug the refrigerator for about 15 minutes and then plug it bak in and it workd properly for about a day and then it happens all over again

You have a deffective compressor the humming that your hearing or the clicking is the relay on the compressor trying to start the unit, the compressor is stuck and cannot start, leaving it unplugged lets the compressor cool down, but as it tries to recool the unit it gets orerheaated again, thus the bad compressor

Neither the refrigerator nor the freezer side is cooling properly. Lights work in fridge. Sounds like compressor is running.

Refrigerator/Freezer not cooling


check freezer for frost build up and if fan blowing, check condenser make sure clean, and fan blowing, by compressor Make sure compressor is running and not shutting off on overload.. u said comp. hot.. should be warm... Not hot check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, freezer control should be in the middle setting, you can try turning that to Warmer freezer allowing MORE air to refrigertor side.
