Question about Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore refrigerator side by side model 106.53582300, purchased Aug 2003. It's been working perfectly until about 3 days ago, very suddenly, neither freezer nor fridge is cold. There is air blowing in from the vents, I did a through vacuum of the coils under the unit but I think it's warmer INSIDE the fridge than outside. I'm wondering if I should bother trying to have it repaired or just replace it. I can't understand how a fridge that's only 7 years old just up and died like this!

Many times a freezer and/or refrigerator do not work right because of a dirty condenser coil...there are also many other things that can go wrong.


If you are hearing a clicking or buzzing then check out the last two tips.

If your refrigerator is running but warm, then…

Check out this tip that I wrote about that... it is a great place to start trouble shooting your unit...and something that you can do rather then calling a repair person to do a simple thing for you...

LOCK BUTTON ON


I think on this model you hold the lock button down until the light blinks off, about 3-5 seconds. If it locks by itself when you open and close the door it may be within the serial number range that had a recall on the dispenser board. Most of these were upgraded about two years ago but I still run into a few that were missed occasionally. If it is one of these units, as far as I know the recall is still open and it would be repaired free of charge. The most likely thing is that some one held the lock button down without realizing it though.
