Question about Kenmore 73502 / 73504 / 73509 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Kenmore 596.57587790 I have a Kenmore 596.57587790 refrigerator, the unit runs and gets to the right temp than it goes off, but after that it starts to defreeze. If I shut it down and turn if back on it starts again and does the same (gets to the temp and it goes off). I have notice when I turn it back on same times it does not work, it clicks off, but if I do it again it works. Any suggestions what could be causing this problem? And can I fix it?

You have pinpointed your problem to the temperature control. Replacing the temperature control may very well solve your problem. A new temperature control ( cold control) can be ordered by your model number from the same place of purchase. If you are capable of removing the old control you can install the new one in reverse order.

Kenmore cold spot side by side Model 106.41512101 My freezer defreezes often. Ice cubes melt, etc. What causes this and how can I resolve the problem ?


all refrigerators use a timer circuit to temporarily turn on heating coils in your freezer side. It also has a round sensor hooked to the coils that senses the internal temp so it does not over heat. It sound like this sensor is bad or your timer is at fault. This sensor is located in the freezor box you have to remove the inside metal/plastic back to get at it you will see wires they will run to a black tube or clear glass tube that is the heating element the sensor is on one of the wires going to the heater and it will be clipped onto a freon line of the condenser close to the heater. You can test it by putting it in a glass of ice and allowing the ice to melt to make water and the unit can be tested with an ohm meter. It should show low ohms close to zero very close and when heated up just run it under your faucet it should show hi ohms this is just an on off switch that uses temp to turn on and off.

Freezer temp


No, these fluctuations are a sign of a unstable control unit. test the control unit for its operational value and , replace the thermostats as well.
