SOURCE: kenmore freeze on the bottom.. model 596-72219200

just called in a sears technician 150 dollar bill that was an easy fix. he says my bottom freezer kenmore fridge with warm fridge problem was due to the pathway being blocked by ice and garbage which is common with these fridges. he took off cover from the fridge bottom and poured boiling water down to the freezer. try that before you replace any parts or call in a tech. next time im getting a top freezer because the blower is on the top not in the middle with the bottom freezers and thus more problem prone.

The unit was built bt LG. It is a computer controled unit and the timer is built into the main control board on back of the unit. However, the most likely cause of the broblem is the defrost terminator located on the evap on the upper right hand corner. Also, try unpugging the unit it will reset the computer board. You will also have to defrost the unit.

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.

Thanks for providing your model number! If other people would do the same they could get help to solve their refrigerator or other appliance problem. Try turning the timer dial clockwise slowly with a flat head screw driver. The location of the timer in your model refrigerator is located inside the control panel inside the fresh food section. Click HERE to see part location number 6 That is the defrost timer=> 482493 Defrost Timer Sometimes there is a round hole on the outside of the control panel where you can place the screw driver and sometimes that hose is covered by a plastic plug. Anyway try turning the timer slow clockwise until fans and compressor stop. Leave the refrigerator off for up to 35 minutes and if it does not restart on it's own then simply turn the timer again slowly until it does restart. If the refrigerator defrost while you have forced defrost this way and timer will not restart refrigerator again on it's own then replacing the timer will be the correct part to replace. If turning the timer does not help in getting defrost we will need to remove items in the freezer to a safe location so you can see what is happening behind the rear wall of the freezer. Item location 33 in the photo HERE is the 2323197 Defrost Heater Assembly Testing the defrost heater can be explained in the video above. Part location number 35 is the=> 2321799 Defrost Thermostat You can test this part but I always change if I need to remover the rear panel of the freezer. I just think it is a good idea. I am here should you have questions, Thanks Sea Breeze

My kenmore 10658026800 does not cool... where is the defrost timer?


I found the parts page but Kenmore does not have the parts listed. You refrigerator was made by Whirlpool and Sears changed the model number. Looking a the sears photos your model does not have a defrost timer but does have an Adaptive Defrost Control located inside the fresh food compartment and behind the control panel where you set temperatures. Defrost failures and compressors stopping as you said in your post are common for the ADC I will continue to try to cross it over to the Whirlpool Model but most likely that is the problem. When an ADC fails strange things begin to happen. Once you start to look for the ADC unplug and remove the top shelf to help lower the control panel. I will return soon to leave you more contact information and what the part looks like. OK your model came with three different styles of defrost controls located in same area. Timer and two different ADC boards. I will need you to look and read the numbers off of what you find. If a timer we can test, defrost boards usually have burn marks on front or back when damaged. Let me know what you find and we go to next step. Is ice building in freezer rear wall or is just lights on? Sea Breeze

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
