This is common. Unplug it or turn off the circuit breaker for a full 5 minutes. Then plug-in and follow instructions. Things will be good

Kenmore fridge, 59665932403, Froze up.

Could be an ice buildup behind the fan, in the air passageways or around the fridge thermostat.
Could also be that the DEFROST thermostat needs to be replaced.

Compressor replaced recently after housing had burned. Currently the 10658582890 kenmore coldspot is not staying consistenly cool (fridge) or keeping the freezer cold.

You should check the warranty they gave with repair thecompressor could be defective or they didn't braze the joints well and refrigerant leaked out

Frigidaire fgf379wjca wont stop beeping and diaplays door on control panel

When a cooling device starts beeping, see it as a warning it can't hold the temperature you selected. Could be the compressor does not work correct, could be it lost cooling fluid. If it keeps beeping, save the food by putting it in another fridge and start (or let someone start) finding out what is wrong. The door symbol is indicating the fridge thinks the temp rise is caused by an open door.

I have a samsung side by side fridge freezer model SRS539HW, the alarm keeps beeping every minute to say the doors are open however they are closed. If I manually pust the door closer button it will...

Solved beeping problem.........Samsung SRS539HW . Have one of these and it is 6 years old. I had to replace the bottom hinge on the fridge side(right). Easy job but now constant beeping as if door is open, and light is intermittent. Found that there is considerable wear on the cable through top hinge of door and one of the wires from a magnetic reed switch in door had broken. I discovered this by shorting the two fine wires (white and pink/white) going to internals of fridge.No more beeping due to door opening and light now working correctly. Of course I no longer get a beep for a valid door open to long but cheaper than getting a refridgerator expert in.

Can you transport this fridge on it's side?? kenmore side by side fridge 22 porcelain plus

Not recommended, but if you must, set it upright but don't plug in for 2 days so all fluids and oil can settle back into the compressor

Kenmore Elite French door refrig-top half, bottom half frozen...

Julie, I don't have a solution to this problem, but as of yesterday, I am having the exact same problem. The top shelf is as warm as the air outside of the fridge and the shelves below are cool. All of the food on the top shelf spoiled. We purchased the fridge in July 2007 so mine is also about the same age as yours. We called Sears and were told no one could come out to service it for a full week AND it is no longer under warranty (warranty expired in July 2008) which is totally lame considering the fact that it's a nearly $3k fridge. I'm very disappointed in Sears and doubt I'll be buying anything from them again.

We ended up unplugging it, waiting 30 seconds and plugging it back in and overnight, the top shelf is cool again but I'm not comfortable with not looking at it further to ensure it doesn't happen again. If you got your problem solved, can you please share what the issue/solution was? Thanks!

check door switch is operating and the light switches off. an easy way is to prize back the seal a bit with door closed and if light is still on you can see it
