Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a Kenmore Refrigerator #253.74882400 It was working fine last week I moved it into the garage. Down 1 step. Did not abuse it. Now the frezzor works fine but the refrigerator is at 60 no matter where I set the control, I am allowing 24 hrs ever time I try to re set it. Any suggestions. Fan appears to be working and I cleaned out the coils with a wet vac. Jon

SOURCE: Amana French Door Refrigerator "on" but no cooling; freezer still works

There are 2 possible problems. One is the defrost cycle is not working properly this is usually indicated by a large amount of frost on the back freezer panel. If so, the circuit will have to be repaired and the evaperator thawed to remove the ice build up. The other is the fresh food damper is not working properly this is behind the "lump" in the back of the fridge compartment above the top shelf, remove the louver panel to see if it is open or closed. closed will be warm open should be cold. The water dispenser reservoir is probably frozen due to poor air circulation.

SOURCE: Refrigerator won't get colder than 45 degrees/ Freezer side is working fine

the fridge thermostat is not a true thermostat it controls a damper door the freezer thermostat runs the compressor in order for your refrigerators to reach the proper temp the freezer should be about -8 to-10 set your freezer thermostat lower and see if it gets lower .at the mid point setting it should be about -8 not 6 you may have a problem with its thermostat or a leak in your system reply to me tomorrow and tell me if lowering the freezer thermostat help we want it about -8or-10 and the best way to check your refrigerator temp is put a glass of water in it and stick your thermometer in it and if need be you can e mail me at b4829@yahoo.com just referance your promblem

SOURCE: My KitchenAid KBRS22K bottom mount refrigerator is

the problem here is the defrost element is not coming on, the problem is the control board in the fresh food compartment is defective and not telling the element to defrost. Therefore your cooling coils are impacted with ice which keeps freezer cold, and sensor in freezer says everything is ok and therefore sends nothing to refrigerator. Replace the defrost control board, Thaw out the cooling coils in freezer, and your back in business

SOURCE: REFRIGERATOR IS MAKING A BUZZING SOUND, not cooling

You have one of two problems going on. Your fan is spinning at hitting the sides. Or your compressor is shot which seems to be more the problem and even though it is cold the humming sound is a warning for you that the compressor is shot and it is more affordable to replace the fridge then the compressor. Sometimes compressor can cost more then the fridge.

Kenmore refrigerator model 106 will not cool fridge or freezer


is your refridge leveled if not level it and stable. Try turn it off for a couples of hours and then put it back. does the refridge move a lot when u open it fix this refridge doesn't has to be moving when opening when on and moving this agitates the freon creates more pressure so it has a pressure switch and turns off the compressor to protect it from over or under pressure

Top mounted freezer on refrigerator not working


Move the refrigerator to a room that is at least 50 degrees F.

Temps on most refrigerators are regulated by the fresh foods temp. If your garage is let's say 35 degrees, the fresh foods temp will most likely never raise enough to turn the refrigerator on. With the refrigerator never running, the freezer compartment will warm to 35 degrees, resulting in everything melting. Even if garage is a bit warmer, say 45, the refrig will not run long enough for the freezer to maintain a low enough temperture. If the garage temp falls to below freezing, say 20 degrees, the food in the fresh foods compartment will freeze. (outdoor beverage dispensers have internal heaters to prevent product from freezing !) Please don't rate this if not a Fix-Ya for you, as anything else lowers my score.

The refrigerator & freezer operate using the same system. One system. Your still covered by the warranty and I would suggest calling the installers or store from which it was purchased. The problem may be a faulty fan switch .

Either you have accidently left the door open at some time in the last few weeks or you have a faulty defrost sensor, initially turn off defrost freezer over night with doors open, turn on following day, unit should start to work within 12 to 24hrs, other wise replace defrost sensor but still deforst.
