Kenmore 253.54622406 Problem

My refrigerator was so warm in both side about a month ago, in the first time I could not get any water from the dispenser. Also, so much water was melting from the freezer side as it was so warm. I unplugged the refrigerator and plug it back on the next day, and the problem seemed to be fixed. Last night, I had a similar issue. Both side started getting warm. However, I was able to get water from the dispenser this time. I saw some frost (couple drops of water drops inside the back of the freezer.) So I turned off the refrigerator, and plugged it back in this morning. Finally it started making ice around 4 o'clock again. I read lots of posts and it seemed that there is a defrost problem in my machine. So I would like your expert advice.

Thanks for your help!!

I have had the experience of Moisture in the refrigeration system with some of this brand. If this is your problem it will require a refrigeration tech to recover the charge from the system, change the system drier, evacuate the system to remove air and moisture, then recharge the system with the proper refrigerant.
If your refrigerator is covered by warranty your cost should be minimal. If it is not covered by warranty it can be somewhat expensive. If it is a problem with the defrost system you will see frost build-up on the back freezer wall.

recommended replacment time is 3 months and the computer knows it was replaced 3 months ago and has counted down the time the reset button was last pressed and determined its been 3 months. Depending on water quality in your region it may not need to be replaced unless the in door water or ice taste funny or the water dispenses slowly through the door because the filter was clogged and having a hard time having water pass through it.

a plugged or frozen drain is a common problem that occurs from time to time in just about all refrigs. Folllow theses directions and it will probably not occur again for 2-3 years.

  • Unplug refrigerator
  • unload food from freezer
  • remove icemaker if present (there are 3 screws remove the one on the bottom and loosen the 2 on top of icemaker then lift it off the 2 screws unplug from wiring harness)
  • remove 2 screws holding rear cover in place
  • move cover to the side or remove from unit altogether
  • defrost any and all ice from bottom of freezer and aluminum drain pan that is now exposed
  • flush drain hole that you will see once ice is cleared with warm water. (sometimes I use a large syringe or turkey baster to forcefully flush hot water thru the drain tube)
  • reassemble in reverse order

I have a bad smell and taste in water and ice from fridge/freezer


Take out all shelves and accessories that can be removed. Wash these thoroughly with a mild detergent (dish washing liquid and warm water) and rinse thoroughly. Allow them to air dry completely.
* Wipe the inside walls of the refrigerator and freezer down completely with a solution of 1 quart warm water and 2 tablespoons of baking soda. Wipe the walls completely dry.
* Leave the doors standing wide open. Use a fan to circulate air through the cabinets for several hours to completely dry the inside walls. After several hours, turn the fan off.
* Replace the shelves in the refrigerator. Place shallow trays of one of the following deodorizers on the shelves of the refrigerator and freezer:
o Baking soda
o Activated carbon (used in aquarium filters, can be obtained at a pet store)
o Cat litter
o Fresh and unused coffee grounds (this may leave a coffee smell that would dissipate after several days)
* After 24 hours, plug in the refrigerator and allow it to cool for several hours with the deodorizer still in place. Once cooled to normal operating temperature, remove the trays of deodorizer and put your food back into the refrigerator and freezer.
* Keep some cereal size bowls of a deodorizer in the freezer and refrigerator cabinets for several days

Warm refrigerator/freezer


very good chance it is the same problem or possibly a leak of refrigerant due to joint failing where compressor is joined to pipework

It is normal for that to be warm but not hot. you need to make sure that the condensor coils under the refrigerator is free of dust. You can get to it by removing the back cover and clean it with a vacume. Also make sure the fan at the compressor is operating. and also clean the fan blades while your there. Doing this and making sure the fan is working should solve your problem. Also in the summer time when its hot and humid the refrigerator has to work longer and harder to keep it cold. so you may notice the front just a little warmer then usual, but it should not be hot that you cant touch it. God luck
