first, sears doesnt make any of their own appliances, but they do sell them, so you can be upset, but it is fixable. what is happening is the freezer fan is not running causing no cold air to circulate. the reason the door strip feels hot is it has a heater to prevent condensation and when the unit is cooling properly it will feel normal temps.
check to see if you can hear the fan running in the freezer, if it is then you may have a defrost problem, but most likely you have a bad fan motor. remove the rear panel in the freezer and check the fan to see if it is turning. if not replace the motor.

SOURCE: Kenmore Elite French door refrig-top half, bottom half frozen...

Julie, I don't have a solution to this problem, but as of yesterday, I am having the exact same problem. The top shelf is as warm as the air outside of the fridge and the shelves below are cool. All of the food on the top shelf spoiled. We purchased the fridge in July 2007 so mine is also about the same age as yours. We called Sears and were told no one could come out to service it for a full week AND it is no longer under warranty (warranty expired in July 2008) which is totally lame considering the fact that it's a nearly $3k fridge. I'm very disappointed in Sears and doubt I'll be buying anything from them again.

We ended up unplugging it, waiting 30 seconds and plugging it back in and overnight, the top shelf is cool again but I'm not comfortable with not looking at it further to ensure it doesn't happen again. If you got your problem solved, can you please share what the issue/solution was? Thanks!

Well, that wire is likely the cause of your issue, somebody probably bent it, and now it gets caught on the door or a basket or a food item or what have you, and since it cannot move, the ice maker will not make ice.

I have an Amana Refrigerator. It is a double door on top and a pull out freezer on the bottom. The freezer is working fine. The refrigerator light comes on but it is not cold and my fresh food is fading...


either the evaporator fan in the damper vent door isnt running to push cold air from the freezer up into the refrige compartment or the damper vent door between the freezer and refrige section is frozen shut and cannot open to allow cold air flow,you need to access the evaporartor coil in the freezer rear wall and check both the fan and door movement

1 year old Kenmore Elite Trio Refridgerator not cooling


There are a lot of things that could be the source of the problem... is there no cooling at all going on in the freezer? Is the back wall of the freezer cold? It could be anything from a fan, to the compressor, to the control board... you need a technician.

I would get on the phone with Sears, and explain the continuing problems you have been having, and they may agree to cover service.

I CHANGED THE FILTER AND SET THE SETTINGS AND IT BEGAN TO WORK A FEW HOURS LATER THE DISPLAY WAS SHOWING ER NOW THE REFRIG. IS NOT COLD AND THE FREEZER IS NOT WORKING AND THE ICEMAKER IS NOT WORKING ALL IN...


If this is the Kenmore french door model with bottom freezer and ice and water in the door made by LG it could be that the mother board has failed.  Call for service and hope that warranty is still in effect.

Kenmore elite MOD.596.76533500


Hi, If the freezer is cold............ I would suspect the defrost timer. Remove everything and place in coolers or another refrigerator. Unplug the refrigerator. With doors open let it sit for aprox 6 hrs. A fan blowing into the freezer section will help. Plug back in and see if it works good again. The fans may be caked in ice and should run again but they may have burned up and need replaced. If it works good for a couple of days and problem returns, Replace the defrost timer. Hope this helps. kstfas
