Here is no specific wiring diagram available but I may be able to help you with this problem.There are tech sheets with wiring and tests available for most model refrigerator.
From the description you give you most likely have a defrost problem. If the defrost system stops working then ice builds up on the coils and eventually causes air flow and cooling problem. If you have a top mount refrigerator the the instructions to enter and run the defrost system are in the image below.

The heater can be checked for how many amperes it's drawing or just listen for the sizzle and pop as the ice melts around the heater.
A defrost failure can be a problem with the timer/control, element or defrost thermostat.
I include additional wiring schematic diagrams of other brands (Maytag), you can compare, wiring connection of the defrost system using adaptive electronic defrost control board instead of the timer.

Where is the defrost timer motor on my kenmore elite 596.76529500 refrigerator


The defrost timer is built into the control board on your model but diagnosing the defrost system like defrost heater and defrost thermostat first would be your best bet to resolve any problem with those first before replacing the 67005396 Control Board. If not defrosting you will need to unplug power cord from the wall remove items from the freezer and then the back wall inside freezer back to expose the evaporator coils so that you can use a hair dryer to melt the ice cause when not defrosting. This way you can see to test the defrost heater and defrost thermostat.

Defrost timer


The defrost timer is part of the electronic control baord located on the back of the refrigerator. If the freezer is not defrosting check the thermistor on the evaporator(freezer) coils. It can cause the control board to thing it doesn'y need defrosting. a common problem

Defrost timer location on a kenmore refridgerator model 10645492400


I don't think your model number is correct in most cases your defrost timer or adaptive defrost board is located wherever your temperature controls are.

My kenmore trio freezer is cold, but not the refidgerator is not, and there is frost and ice where the cold air blows in from the freezer.


Since Kenmore is manufactured by several different manufactures, you should find the model number off the equipment id tag and provide that so I can give you the best advice. It will probably be located beside the vegtable tray in that unit, but not always.

You have a defrost system failure. Your defrost system is made up of the defrost heater, defrost thermostat and defrost timer/control board (newer units have incoorporated the timer onto the control board). You will need an ohm meter to check the heater (if it isn't open - it is good) and the thermostat (low ohm reading normal 28-38 ohms) but the timer is a different story. So you will need to rule out the heater and thermostat before replacing the timer/control board.

Freezer will not come back on


First check the thermostat. It might have gotten turned up when you were cleaning it. If the thermostat is set correctly, the problem might be the defrost timer. It controls cycles the compressor off periodically to turn on the defrost heater. There are wires connecting it to the compressor. It is a little box, a bit smaller than a pack of cigarettes with about 3 to 4 wires connected to it. On one side is a hole with a plastic cam. The cam can be turned with a coin or a flat screwdriver. If it is turned about an quarter turn, it should click. If the compressor turns on after you turned the cam, then the problem is the defrost timer.

Freezer is on and just stopped working


you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model

Frige is warm but freezer is fine! Kenmore Stainless 596.72913200


Hello , I can help. You can ohm the heater out to ensure its ok it should read very low res. less than 20 probably , you would be lucky to have a defrost timer in this unit most of these now have electronic defrost control boards that fail often , to find out which one you have take the control cover in the upper/fresh food settings area at top off and there should be a 3" by 4" small control board or a def. timer that's white or black with a harness connected to it that has 4 wires.

If you have a def. timer there is a dial you can turn until it clicks once and set it to defrost to test the cycle , if the defrost is working at this point this means the timer has quit and is not timing any longer you will need to replace the defrost timer.

If you have a control board this is most commonly the problem , replace the defrost board and you should be good to go. If you have any problems let me know , good luck. Phil

hi If the compressor doesn't run, it is likely that the defrost timer is malfunctioning. This part is located near the compressor. To test the defrost timer:
Step 2: Disconnect the wires from the timer and timer motor. Remove the timer from its brackets by backing out two retaining screws.
Step 3: Test the defrost timer with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Clip one probe of the VOM to each defrost timer -- not motor -- wire, and turn the timer control screw shaft until it clicks. If the defrost timer is functioning, the meter will read zero. If the needle jumps, the defrost timer is faulty. Replace it with a new one of the same type.
Step 4: Connect the new defrost timer the same way the old one was connected.
To check the defrost timer motor, clip one probe of the VOM to each motor wire, setting the scale to RX100. If the meter reads between about 500 and 3,000 ohms, the motor is functioning properly. If the meter reads higher than 3,000 ohms, the timer motor is faulty. Replace it with a new one of the same type. Connect the new motor the same way the old one was connected.
