Kenmore refrigerator not cooling

Would it still be frozen up if any ice is gone? It has thawed 3 different times and was completely clear yesterday when we pulled it apart. ( wasn't sure if you meant frozen as in too cold or frozen as in can't move)

You may need to clean the condenser under the refrigerator. Or you may need a new cold control. I did mean frozen as in iced up. If your coil is clear of ice as I understand then it is a different problem than a defrost problem. If your condenser has been cleaned and you still have the same problem you also want to check the compressor operation. Listen and if you hear a hum and a click at the compressor in the back it would be the compressor that has the problem.

Why is ice frozen solid in the bin?


The ice could be caused by a partial thaw such as a power failure. To open bin unplug unit. Get lots of towels and a wet Vac if you have one. The use of these will become obvious shortly. Open the door and put a fan blowing on it, the same type of fan we use when it is hot to cool down. Then wait in time it will start thawing. This would also be a good time to clean it inside, you probably were putting that off. When totally thawed and dry start it up and keep an eye on it for a few days it will probably be ok. If not you have a clean unit to try some of the other suggestions.

Why is my icemaker not working on Sears Kenmore 50562991


Two of my refrigerators stopped making ice because of frozen water lines going to the ice maker inside of the freezer door. I thawed the lines by unplugging the refrigerator and used a hair drier around the ice maker till all the frost was gone. After I plugged it in I heard water going to the ice maker. If you remove the ice bin you can check the ice tray to see if it has ice in it. If it is empty it is not getting water. It could also be a bad Solenoid Water Valve.

The Refrigerator isn't cooling. The Freezer works fine. There is ice build-up in the drain resulting in a drip inside the refrigerator. After being thawed, it re-iced within 48 hours. The fan is...


Hello,

Due to the blocked drain it sounds to me as if the vents in the ceiling of the refrig. has frozen over so no air can be circulated from the freezer into the refrig. section. This tip i wrote will show ya how to clear the drain and addation to clearing the drain the ice build up would need to be removed from the vents.

The water feed to the ice maker is frozen - I can see that it is plugged with frozen water. I was able to get the frozen water out of the chute that leads to the ice maker but I can still see the ice...


Hi,

This usually means the water inlet valve that feeds the ice maker is bad. It can bypass a small amount of water and that water runs so slow that it freezes in the tube you are clearing.

The valve I am talking about is behind the frig on the bottom, it should be blue in color.

To clear the ice from the tube use hot water and a turkey baster, or a hair dryer.

The part number for the water valve is 4389177

Water leakage from bottom of upright freezer, on side by side fridge/freezer combination.


most unit have automatic defrost that melts ice off coils in freezer compartment it is on a timer sounds like the drain line has plugged or frozen to verify unit will need to be dismantled and verify drain clear
how ever if problem is just ice unit can be emptied and allowed to thaw completly and then turned back on and refilled if problem reaccurs then drain was plugged first and then froze normally I would thaw unit and pour water down drain verify clear before restarting normal defrost cycles it will leak about the same time everyday good luck ron

Wont make ice


More likely a frozen water line in the freezer compartment. Thaw out the freezer completely - then it should work after cooling down again.

Refrigerator not making ice


Make sure the water line is clear and not kinked somewhere. It's also possible that the water line orifice is frozen inside the freezer at the ice maker area and blocking water flow. You can thaw it out with a hair dryer - point it at the water inlet - be careful

Kenmore Refrigerator model 363.9565512


Hello, Check the water fill tube to see if it may be frozen. It's a tube about 3/8" wide that hangs over the tray. Squeeze the tube and if it is hard, it"s frozen, if it is soft, you have another problem. If it's hard, take a hair dryer and thaw out the tube and you ice maker should be fixed.
I hope this helps.
