New Kenmore elite range blows cold air from oven vent when top burners are on. Is this normal


That sounds a bit unusual.... Does the fan come on when you turn on the oven on bake? How about on broil? How about on self-clean. If it comes on in all those settings, then it may be working as designed. If NOT, they there may be a crossed wire, or you may have a malfunctioning control.

Kenmore elite coldspot model 106.74219400 freezes in the fridge never gets above 5 or 10 degrees and it never shuts off.


there is a flap in the refrigerator side usually near or behind the light bulb the freezer side is thermostatically controlled with the compressor being controlled. On the refrigerator side the cold air comes from the freezer side. when this flap is open the refrigerator will cool continuously, Check the flap or the duct assembly
here is an illustration of the part

I opened freezer on my Kenmore elite model #596 73503203 and everything was melting, ice had started to turn to water. The refrigerator is only 7 years old, is it worth fixing? The freezer does not seem...


It could need refrigerant...I'd try to possibly get a quote on that.

BUT FIRST,
I'd ensure the coils were cleaned of all dust and dirt...either by vacuum or blow it with compressed air.
I'd also check to make sure the light goes out when the door is closed. Sounds crazy but I had a bad switch once that allowed the bulb to stay on constantly...makes everything warm.

Refrigerator is not cold


Hi Louis,

This is what has happened. Due to the door being opened for so long moisture which is naturally in the air has collected on your freezer coils. What you need to do is turn the whole thing off for at least 24 hours. Open the doors and put some towels around it to let the frost melt out.
All the air that gets cooled in your unit gets cooled by a fan that pulls air through those coils. Once the frost has melted out of them it should cool just fine.

Bottom frezzer is working but fridge is not blowing cold air


Refrigerator gets cold air from freezer compartment. Either the air flow is blocked by food items or ice, or the recirculating fan is not working.

The most common failure is that the freezer coils get all iced up becuase the defroster timer, defroster thermostat, or heater has stopped working.

When it's running, you should feel cold air blowing out of the vents that are in the fridge, otherwise, the 'air tower' (air vent) is blocked with ice.

If you manually defrost the whole thing, and it runs fine for a day or so, then it's not defrosting properly. If you manually turn the defroster timer, and you don't hear the scorching/hissing/gurgling of the defroster working, then that would confirm a fault in the defroster circuits.

Based on the following thread, it's probably a bad defrost thermostat.

through other postings on your web site i was able to determine that the return air flow vents had frosted over (closed). I defrosted the unit and it appears to be working fine now.

Try cleaning out the the vent tube. Sometimes lint gets caught up in there over time. Hope this helps.
