Question about Kenmore 64802 Top Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Hello\r\nI am trying to troubleshoot my Kenmore Refrigerator

Hello I am trying to troubleshoot my Kenmore refrigerator problem. Model # 106.9751751
The refrigerator is not cooling but the freezer is working fine.
I did search and found some tips on what to do on the drain line icing up.
So, I went in to the freezer compartment and removed the bottom panel and back panel where I did find ice buildup but not on the coils.
I used a hair dryer to remove the ice buildup and also the drain line.
After cleaning up the excess ice/water, I put the pieces back together and turned the unit back on.
I notice that the freezer began cooling and went down to freezing temps rather quickly.
I checked the refrigerator temp this morning and it is still around 60 degrees.

I noticed that a couple of parts may need to be replaced –
-defrost timer
-defrost thermostat

Can you confirm that these may be the parts I need to replace or if I need to check something else?

If the coils are not icing up you do not have a defrost problem. Check that the evaporator fan is operating. Thats the one near the coil. You will need to close the door switch to see if it comes on. If it is working next check that the damper is opening this alows cold air into the fresh food section. Without the full model # I am not sure if your defrost thermostat operates the fan. Check the wiring diagram to see if the t-stat feeds the fan. If it does and there is no power at the fan replace the t-stat.The problem is likely to be either the fan or damper motor.

Want to reverse door swing on Kenmore refrigerator model # 795

Actually, I have a Kenmore 795 model with the top door and bottom drawer freezer. I just tried this, based on "guru's" advice. Unfortuately, though the TOP hinge on this model is reversible, the bottom hinge is NOT. I got it all apart before I discovered this problem. Also you might want to note that the 7/16th wrench is too big for my bolts and the 3/8ths is too small. I had to use an adjustable wrench...maybe they are metric.
An allen wrench will get the handles off for you. You will find little ports for it if you look carefully.

Refrigerator is not cooling

Hello hazraan

You said your Kenmore model 60852990 freezer is working but refrigerator is not cooling.

Lets try a couple of ideas.
Is your freezer filled up where the packages are covering the air vents in the rear of the freezer?
Refrigerators and freezers must share the cold air and circulate between them. If the freezer is packed full with not enough space at the air vents in side it, the fridge will get warmer!

Next,Turn off the fridge and freezer controls, and then go to the breaker box and turn off the breaker to the fridge for 5 minutes!!!!!
Then restart it and the fridge and freezer controls.
This should reset the system and solve the problem. let me know if either were the case.
If either was the reason,it now will take some 8 to 12 hours to gets back to temperature.

Waiting your response.
Huuum, Please remember to leave a rating.
