Question about Kenmore 18.3 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator w/Through-the-Door Water Dispenser

Kenmore refrigerator not cooling

We have a Kenmore refrigerator with a top freezer and it is not cooling. It started out by leaking out the freezer door and things in the freezer were thawing. We turned it up and it worked for a couple of days, then same problem. My husband pulled it out and vacuumed everything and tried blowing out the drain hose in case it was plugged. He said the condenser was very hot, everything seemed to be working, but the freezer is not cold and now the frig is warm also.
Any ideas?

    Would it still be frozen up if any ice is gone? It has thawed 3 differnet times and was completely clear yesterday when we pulled it apart.

Is there frost on the back wall? If so your coil is frozen up and you have a defrost problem. The water coming out of the freezer door could also be caused by the same problem.

    The statement that the condenser was hot would indicate to me that the compressor is pumping heat. If it is indeed the compressor that is hot the answer would be different. If it is the compressor that is hot it indicates that the problem is with the compressor itself. If it is covered by warranty it should be replaced, if it is out of warranty (over 5 years old) the whole refrigerator should be replaced.

Kenmore 253.78989801. Refrigerator stop cooling, then freezer gradually lost temperature. Melted ice buildup on coils by removing panel in freezer. Restored power. Fan in freezer works, I can hear...


If freezer is not cooling then the chance of frost forming is also out of question. So we need to start of by checking on the prrimary component, the compressor. Make sure the speed of the motor is humming welll or check the motor capacitor. Use a clamp tester to measure the current factor to see the load. If the pumping is low then check for gas pressure in the unit. If not you will need to check why the gas leaked check the leak with compressed air pumped in and monitored.for leak.
Only then recharge gas and seal.
Test the motor before gas filling to confirm the performance.
