Just stopped cooling refrigerator and freezer model number 79571092111


Impossible for all fans to be working, compressor ok, freon levels fine, and no cooling. Of course, if your compressor is no longer compressing, then that would account for your problem - you could also confirm this by checking current draw. With the compressor doing nothing but spinning current draw should be next to nothing.

If ice in back of freezer self defrost mechanism is not working.

My kenmore fridge model 56723 is not cooling that is the fridge side. the fan is spinning very well but the compressor is very hot. funny enough the freezer appears to be cooling okay


Its defrost problem, the freezer should cool, then freeze, then defrost cycle should start. In your case freezer is cooling, then freezing, but its not defrosting. That's why fridge section is not cooling.-------

MY KITCHEN AID SIDE BY SIDE FRIDGE IS NOT COOLING. tHE COMPRESSOR IS HOT AND APPEARS TO BE RUNNING. Please help. Frank


1.The fan motor at the compressor must be running to keep the compressor cool.2. If you hear a clicking sound at the compressor,that is a indication of a bad compressor start relay that must be replaced.

Bottom cools and top cools but dose not freeze . Do not heart fan when frezzer is opened.


you do not hear the fan ? your evaporator fan is not working - shut off everything and remove freezer panel look for any excess ice or frust blocking the fan - if everything is clear try spinning the fan blades with your hands, is there any resistence or it spins freely ? Put back cover and turn it on - if fan fails to spin then you have to get it serviced and change the evap fan motor assembly or check the control board.
your unit won't cool if the fan is not working or working erratically.

Not cold


If you are talking about the refrigerator not cooling, but the freezer is then it appears that the circulating fan is wearing out. This problem is very hard to diagnose as the fan still spins but it does not spin fast enough to circulate the chilled air thru the freezer and refrigerator. The minimum cost to repair/replace the fan assembly is around$300.00.
