Question about Kenmore 18.3 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator w/Through-the-Door Water Dispenser
Hi, we have a Kenmore Coldspot Top Freezer refrigerator, model# 72852101. It has been leaking water from the two openings under the freezer for a while. The freezer is working fine, but now the refrigerator is no longer cold nor cooling. How expensive is to repair this? Sears wants to sell me a $250 warranty for a year to include fixing it. Or I can do the $65 dollar estimate then parts and labor fees. Is this problem an easy fix for a regular repair guy? Is it under $250? Close to $250? Is it time for a new fridge? Its only 6 years old. Is this something I can fix? I really just want to make the right choice once given some fair solutions. I appreciate any and all information.
Thanks In Advance
Easy fix my man. couple of possibilities: 1) the fresh food gets cold air from the freezer via the vents where the water has been coming out. the water has frozen up in the vents and is blocking the airflow. the reason the water was coming out in the first place is a slow drain. open up the evaporator cover inside the freezer. get all the ice out of there and clear the drain. a little bleach will kill the gunk that made the drain flow slowly.
2) you have a defrost issue and the coil is loaded up with frost causing no airflow to the fresh food section. check the defrost heater limit and timer. none of these repairs should be over 150. but thats in lawton ok. if you live in L.A. or NYC get the wty.

Also get the warranty for sears knows that some of these drain tubes on the ref were not formed correcty and are colapsing, inside the body of the machine, with the warranty if they can not fix it they have to replace it
