Question about Kenmore 53092 / 53094 Side by Side Refrigerator
The most common problem is the condenser under the refrigerator is clogged with lint. Pull the unit away from the wall for clearance,tip it rearward, and have someone use a vaccum on the dust. Unplug the unit while working on it and remove what can slide around be careful not to damage the works underneath, as dirt is the whole problem.................. Get it clean as you can and reset to factory settings and leave it alone for 24 hours.
The FACT THAT IT IS STILL FREEZING MEANS THE WORKS ARE OK.!
If it still doesn't work correctly, you need freon added by a service man, but I think cleaning is all you will need.
You might remove the back and clean behind the unit if needed
Also note that
First and simplest thing is to make sure your condenser coils on the back of the fridge usually, are clean and have adequate air circulation. If you pull the fridge away from the wall you can just brush them off or use the brush on your vacuum.
One thing I have seen is a frost-free fridge building up ice on the cooling coils, this happend to me once during a hot spell here, although DW may have put a pot in the fridge such that it blocked the door barely open, not certain.
What I do know is that shutting the fridge off completely and opening both doors for a couple of days let the ice melt, and then I re-started it, it worked fine and still does.
This is one of the situations where having a spare fridge or old fridge in the basement or garage comes in handy. Or a small dedicated chest freezer.
If you don't have and don't want to buy any of the above, get a really good ice chest, put the contents of the fridge in that, ideally just use up the stuff in the freezer.
One other thing is to buy a pair of fridge/freezer thermometers, put one in each chamber, measure the actual temperature. One measurement is worth 1000 guesses.
If the cooling coils are blocked with ice, you can expect a good bit of water when it melts, you will see a catch basin on the rear of the fridge near the compressor, be ready to remove some water from that using something like a turkey baster.
If the coils were iced up, and the problem recurs within a few weeks, probably your heater timer and/or heater are out. These are generally worth fixing.
Hope this helpout........
