Question about Kenmore 54603 / 54606 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

I have a model #106-54606300 (cool spot) and am having an almost identical problem with my refridge as another poster. I have copied his troubles as they match mine: "Refrigerator stopped cooling suddenly; not a slow failure; I can hear a relay click; then the compressor cycles on for about 5 seconds; then the compressor shuts off for about 4 or 5 minutes before repeating the cycle. There were no indications of trouble prior to this that I noticed." ..... I removed the paper cover from the back lower section of the fridge and the motor is very warm (I am assuming this large black round thing is the motor or compressor. It has the copper tubing coming from it). The fan runs almost non-stop but the freezer is defrosted and I don't believe anything is cooling. I was unable to find out what the corrective action was on his fridge (meyerfamily9).

I can't solve the big sheep puzzle there are only 2 solutions do you know them 16 cards two of which are identical


This same puzzle was copied and handed out at a Mensa meeting according to this link:
http://www.cs.utsa.edu/~wagner/sheep/index.html
I have verified that the Mensa puzzle and the "Big Sheep Puzzle" at www.thebigsheep.co.uk are identical. The spotted sheep are replaced by the brown sheep in the Mensa puzzle. The instructions on the box claim 2 identical tiles, but there are really 2 sets of identical tiles in the puzzle. The author of the link above found 55 distinct solutions.

Refridge quit cooling suddenly inboth freezer


That could be a broad range of possibilities. The defrost timer, adaptive defrost board,compressor start relay, compressor start capacitor or a mother board. Would you happen to have the model number so I can narrow down those possibilities? If you pull away from wall remove cover over the compressor and then unplug. Touch the compressor and let me know if cool, warm or too hot to touch. Thanks, Sea Breeze

First thing to check is that the control switches are in the proper position, since some RV fridges require a particular placement for the fridge to operate on different power souces.

Check your owner's manual for troubleshooting steps for your specific fridge, beyond that, here's link to a site that provides a step-by-step troubleshooting guide complete with active links for each potential issue.

http://gasrefrigeration.net/works_on_gas_but_does_not_work_o.htm

Here's a copy of the manual for your fridge model that you can download and print for free, just in case you don't have yours handy.

Kenmore refrigerator model 106 will not cool fridge or freezer


is your refridge leveled if not level it and stable. Try turn it off for a couples of hours and then put it back. does the refridge move a lot when u open it fix this refridge doesn't has to be moving when opening when on and moving this agitates the freon creates more pressure so it has a pressure switch and turns off the compressor to protect it from over or under pressure
