Question about Kenmore 57029 Side by Side Refrigerator
If the compressor is not running, it could be either a bad relay or compressor.This is not an issue with defrost components or temp. control .If you have experience in repairing appliances, could take all precautions necessary and use multimeter - You could do a continuity check on compressor motor and all combination's. An infinity value on multimeter would confirm bad compressor.
On the side of the compressor you will see a box (maybe a cover) remove the cover if it has one and then remove the wire harness. next you will see the relay with the capacitor mounted to it. give the relay a tug and pull it off the side of the compressor. once you have it off pull the capacitor off and then give the relay a shake. If it rattles the relay is bad. if the relay does not rattle the compressor is bad and you will need to call a service guy to replace the compressor.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Testimonial: "If I knew anything about the fridge, I can tell this info would have been very important."
I have a Kenmore Coldspot side by side refrigerator m#57282791 made 6/98. About 2 yrs ago the ice despenser started puting black flakes in cup with ice so I quit using dispenser and getting it from inside. Then about a yr ago the water dispenser stopped working. Now it quit making ice period. It sounds like it is but no ice. HELP!

what this indicate is that there is power disconnection on the fridge, the fridge it self is ok/alright .
what you will need to check on from here is the fuse on the wire connected to the main power supply replace it with a better one but if there is any ,but if not the then check on the wire connected to the capacitor if there is any form of disconnection onthe capacitor then the problem is solve .
thank and thanks for using fixya.
