Two possibilities:
- Defrost timer has failed allowing the buildup of ice that eventually blocks air flow. - Circulation fan has failed; check this by holding a couple of wet fingers near the vent inside the refrigerator compartment (typically in the back of the cabinet) while you hear the compressor running. If you can't feel any air flow, the fan is not turning.
Go to the Sears website linked below and enter your model number to see if they have your unit shown in a line-drawing that will enable you to see the location of the various assemblies and also provide name and part number for them.

My refrigerator/ freezer doesn't seem to be too cool. Cleaned bottom coils and left unplugged for 24 hrs. Turned back on and it worked fine for a week. Now it is not cooling again. Any ideas why?


Hello Chris Conrad,

Worked fine for a week... is actually a pretty good sign...
MOST likely means the cooling is OK...

FROST-FREE (defrost)... should become your focus

TYPICALLY... (assuming you have that type of UNIT).

after the week... is it clogged with frost / ice (cool in the freezer area but not the refrigerator... (a week is a little less than average to become non-functional in the refrigerator (cheap little refrigerator thermometers come in really handy here... (but still cool in the freezer area where all the REAL cooling is done))).

Can you see frost/ice blocking any air slots in the FREEZER AREA??

Is water being put in the (I assume) "defrost pan" daily...?

Easy to check... put a strip of typing paper folded over the edge of the (water tray) defrost pan...

Still clean, straight & dry tomorrow = defrost circuit failure
(again.... assuming it is a "frost-free").

Yes (clean & straight) means I am wrong: paper
will look rumpled & ugly (possibly wet).

Then...

You have a HUGE AIR INTRUSION problem you need to fix first... (door alignments, gaskets, etc.) then get sophisticated about makes, model numbers... & how soon it takes to get ICE-BOUND.

You can comment me back... or get out the original
refrigerator documents... (typically) looking for:
- Defrost timer or control board
- Defrost thermostat
- Defrost HEATING ELEMENT

OR

Search on line to parts/spares + appliance+ (your model number).

Good luck...

Freezer has light frost in bak and frig is not cooling properly


Sounds like it is not defrosting . Either the defrost timer, heater or thermostat. Leave the bottom door open for 24 hours and will probably work again for about a week till repaired.
