Question about Kenmore 24.5 cu. ft. Side-by-Side Refrigerator with PUR Ultimate II Water Filtration

1 Answer

I have a fridge and freezer that won't stay cold and frozen on the upper half The only way I can get the refrigerator/freezer to stay cold it to turn the refrigerator cold control off and then back on. This starts both the refrigerator and freezer. When I am gone for a few days, they never kick on so everything thaws and gets warm. ronh@intrass.com ron

check the damper door vent as it sounds as if it has frozen itself shut or possibly the cold control in the refrigerator has gone bad and can't control the door,the door is usually behind a diverter panel or a grille where the fan forces the cold air in from the freezer,the cold control is the component that you adjust to change refrige temp setting

Freezer box gets cold but fridge box stays warm.


Could be frost build up in the freezer compartment or a bad defroster,
Try running a diagnostic defrost cycle test and see what happens

Freezer is cold but not fridge


there is a little trap door at rear upper corner of frig/freezer. (side by side type) Not sure where it is on others. Opens to cool refrig side closes when right temp is reached, Either link to operator is frozen or broke. Should be fixed (replaced) by repairman, easy, fast not too expensive.

Whirlpool gold:upper half of refridgerator side not cold


Either the evap fan has a problem, or the defrost system has failed. You should never see frost in the freezer section as the defrost sensor should sense that the coils need to be defrosted before that much frost accumulates.

Unplugging to clean out helped because the frost got a chance to melt away.

If you find the evap motor is running, then the things to check are the defrost sensor, the defrost timer, and the defrost heater.

Reply back if you would like more info.

Freezer not freezing


Check to see if the fan motor in the freezer is running. Most likely it is not circulating the cold air Also make sure the defrost drain line is clear and has drained out. A frozen sheet of ice will restrict airflow also
