Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a mini (2.5 Cu ft) kenmore refrigerator that I bought a year ago. Last night it stopped working, just stopped being cold at all. We switched outlets to make sure it wasn't a problem with the room, and I readjusted te thermostat settings, but nothing. The motor in the back is hot to the touch. Is there any way I can save this or is a new minifridge on the horizon?

If Sears did suggest a solution for the symptom you describe it would probably be to replace the fan.

It looks like a bad ignition switch or capacitor. This is not that expensive. Probably not the compressor. Unfortunately, one small part stops the whole show.have a friend who is a tech look at it.

Hi. I have a 24.8 cu ft Bottom Freezer Refrig...over the last 24 hrs it does not seem to be keeping cold. Help!!


Did you set the control to a warmer temperature by accident while cleaning? Check to make sure the temperature control is set to a position that has the cooler turning on. Usually 4-5 will suffice.

I did some research online, and read that the Start Relay is most commonly the problem. My husband bought the part, (about $50) and reattached it to the side of the compressor....and was cold immediately! apparently a very common problem on these fridges.
