Hello there, need some more info here.. What do you mean when it stops? When you hear the fans stop you mean? It may take a long time for the fans to come back on and that is normal... Are you certain it won't come back on? Or do you mean the lights go off and never come back on?

Let me know, thanks
Tim

    Interesting, it sounds like the internal thermostat / temperature gauge is failing in the fridge. Are you trying to do the repair yourself? I would definitely recommend you consult with a refrigerator repair person at this point as the repair is very difficult. If you want to try it yourself though I can find the part that you need, let me know.

    Thanks
    Tim

Either your filter was really stopped up or you could be low on refrigerant. If your filter was stopped up, be sure it is thawed out all the way with no more ice build up, and go ahead and turn it on. You may have already solved your problem. It it freezes up again, you will have to have your refrigerant checked.
The only other thing it could be would be a stopped up evaporator coil. This happens when the unit is ran for a long time without a filter or when the filter doesn't fit in the blower correctly.

My kenmore sid by side frige has lost all power the recepticle i use is fine.it's less than 2 yrs.old


Reset the circuit breaker or fuse and ensure the fuse has a 15 amp time-delay to provide enough power to the refrigerator.
Ensure the temperature control knob is turned past "0" and is set at a temperature cool enough to require motor function from the refrigerator.
Wait 20 minutes and check the power on the refrigerator again, as the unit may be in a defrost cycle, which may make it seem as if it was turned off.
if that doesn't work, and your sure you have power to the plug itself,, contact the searsdirect.com
they have an online chat repair

Possible that the fan is defective or the fan is receiving low voltage so as not to run by itself.
you will need to remove the fan and check with an external voltage to see if the fan starts without an external trigger.
If not check the voltage to the fan , trace for any loose connection or poor joints for loss of voltage.

Side by side not making ice


valve is probably frozen preventing supply water into ice maker. turn ref off for about 12 hrs to allow the supply line to defrost. turn on and see if it solved the problem. if not, the valve itself may be defective.

Kenmore side by side compressor keeps getting hot


Your fan is stalling which in turn is over heating the compressor causing it to shut itself down. Replace the fan and make sure the coils under the fridge are clean. That should take care of the problem. Good luck
