You are right on the money. I would definitely buy the fan kit because the problem will get worse. I had to replace the evaporator fan on my parents fridge and it was only two years old. You can also download the breakdown diagrams and schematics from http://www3.sears.com

SOURCE: Kenmore 596.72913200 Refrigerator is Warm, but Freezer is Cold

There should be a push in switch on the door frame that you can push to see if the evaporator fan is functioning. You will be able to hear it when you push in on the switch.

If your problem is defrost related you will see frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer . If it is defrost related it will be ether the timer, heater, or defrost thermostat that is your problem. If it is the timer, locate where the timer is. Sometimes located in the area of the temperature controls with a hole through which you can turn a clutch head screw clockwise very SLOWLY until you hear one audible click. This will start the defrost. if after 30 minutes it defrosts but does not start cooling again turn the screw just a little further and you will hear another click. The compressor should start. If this is you conditions the timer needs to be replaced. If it fails to defrost and restarts to cooling mode after 18-22 minutes the problem is in the defrost heater circuit.

SOURCE: Burned electrical smell from the freezer compartment

I would check the defrost thermostat usually a button type switch with 2 wires on it mounted to the freezer coil. Size depends on type ; 1 type is about quarter size, 1 is about dime size, and electronic sensor (not had one burn out but the board could smell like your description but I believe these are not in the freezer section).

I have had these cook out and smell up the freezer section before. And if they go out guess what it wont defrost either. If your fan motor goes out it might smell and wont cool all over but the frost should be minimal.


Also a bad defrost heater could make a smelly situation it is usually a black rod or aluminum colored and the rubber ends can burn and make a smell.
If you find its the heater, I would replace the defrost thermostat as well. Its suppose to cut off the heater before it gets too hot.

If this helps you find your problem please rate me as high as possible if not please post back with more information as to what you did find. Thanks for using fix ya and good luck.

SOURCE: freezer works but refrigerator is staying at 50 degrees

Is this a French door unit? Do you see excessive build up of frost in the freezer on the back panel? Is that evaporator fan motor running? That is what circulates the air from the freezer to the refrigerator.

It not to hard to do, if you have some mechanical ability and some basic household tools. First unplug the fridge. Then remove the contents of freezer so you can remove the back panel in the freezer compartment. You may need to remove the shelving in order to get to the back panel. Once the panel is removed, you should be able to see the evap motor. It usually mounted with a couple of bolts or screws. Loosen the bolts, then remove the wires. The wires may be attached with wire nuts or they may have some crimp connectors. Either remove the wire nuts or the connectors and reattach wires to the new motor. If your new motor does not come with a fan, simply pull the old fan off and press it onto the shaft of the new motor. Install the new motor with the bolts or screws. Plug in the fridge, if you have attached the wires correctly the fan should spin, otherwise unplug and check your work. Replace the panel and the food and plug in the fridge. Hope this helps you.

It sounds like the overload/relay is bad . This is the piece plugged onto the side of the compressor , with 2 or 3 wires going to it , part number 2262185 . This piece is easily replaceable . This piece is bad , if your compressor is not running .

If you have frost build up on the freezer panel , then you have a defrost problem instead . This would be a different issue , which you would need to come back for further diagnostic procedures .

Also , make sure you hear the fan in the freezer working , if not , that is the problem , and replacing the freezer fan motor will solve the problem .

GE GSS201EMDCC Fridge and freezer not cooling.


there is probaly a "clixon" in the unit that senses the temp of the evap. if the evap does not get down to a certin temp the fan will not run. this makes it so you do not have ice crystals all over the freezer. matters on model. also sounds like the fridge might be short on gas.

This has to be the evap. fan motor. I have ran into this alot. If you take the vent off the topcenter of the freezer back panel useing a simple flat head unlock the clips. Once you see the fan blades push it with your finger carefully if it spins slow and little wobblely the motor has failed. If it turns not at all then check for 120V. going into the motor by unhooking it if you get 120V motor bad if you get nothing then the Jazzboard or Highvoltage control board has failed. To install a new fanmotor is easy take your time most parts come out with a flathead screw driver and 1/4inchnutdriver. Evap. fan motor is just clipped in.

Refrigerator won't cool


We bought a Kenmore Elite Trio 596.76533500 from Sears in 2006. A few months passed and the Elite broke down. The tech person came out and found that the AC Evaporative Fan was inoperable. It was replaced (part #67003917). A few months later the same thing happened. But before they came out, I spoke to the tech person on the phone who seemed very familiar with the fan. He said that they've had numerous problems with that fan model and would bring out an older-type one that had fewer sensors and that was less prone to failure. The "motor evap" part #2214986 (Whirlpool compatible) was put in and everything has been working since... Hope this helps...
