Question about Kenmore 57029 Side by Side Refrigerator
Im sorry but it sounds like your compressor is bad. You can try replacing the start relay it is located on the top of the compressor under a plastic cap. The cap is held on by a metal clip. The start relay is about the size of a nickel and is under this cap and attached to one of the three prongs coming out of the compressor. The compressor is located in the back under the bottom of the refrigerator and is about the size of a soccer ball and is black. Make sure you unplug the refrigerator first. I hope I'm wrong and the start relay is bad but most of the time if it kicks in for more than five seconds its the compressor. good luck

Hello - From what you have described it sounds like you might be experiencing some form of sealed system issue or a bad door seal. This can include the compressor not working correctly, the evaporator fan not turning, or even coolant in the lines not at the correct levels to properly cool. If the compressor is running, humming, or even a little warm then that is typically normal. However if the compressor is running hot, then it is over working and the issue could be before the compressor in the evap fan, coil or coolant lines. When was the last time you cleaned the condensers? You may do so by removing the toe grille and use extended vacuum attachment and condenser cleaning brush to remove dust buildup from condenser coils usually located on the left side underneath. If you hear the compressor running and if it is providing warm air then that means it is operating correctly and the sealed system is removing heat from the cabinet. Fan motor/evaporator may be the primary issue. However, if you do not hear the compressor and the unit is blowing room temperature then the unit may possibly have a sealed system leak, faulty compressor or overload relay. Try checking if the door seal is bad; place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check the door from closing then replace the gasket. If any proves to be ineffective, you would need to contact your manufacturer and then a professional to move forward accurately.
