Question about Kenmore 5553 / 655532 / 55534 / 55539 Side by Side Refrigerator
I have a 4 yr old Kenmore 106.55524400 side by side that is having a problem where the fridge side is note getting cold. Freezer side seems fine. This model has electronic temp settings. I think the fan runs but not sure. I have a service appoint for tomorrow with Sears to look at but they are offering a 1yr warranty agreement for $250 that will cover this and any other problems. Not sure if this is worth it if it's something stupid like a clogged vent. Any advise?
I've been manually defrosting my coils for over a year. (you can use the diagnostic mode to do this, instructions are in the papers wedged into the grill). got tired of it and just called service. they think it is the computer. i'm going to buy a replacement board online and repair it myself. hoping this works.

Look in the louvers of the "gizmo" actuall calld an air diffuser to see if the sliding shutter is open or closed. If you can't see through it, it's closed. Could be a motor problem or, like mine was, have a broken shutter where the motor driven cam operated the shutter. I repaired mine but a new one is under $70.

I say check the fan at the evap. side,that blows the cold air from the freezer through the ducts to cool the other side.

Chances of recovering your investment in a case like this are few and far between. You had the thing for four years and now have this problem. One year is a long way from four. Casinos win more than they loose.
