Hello Mike,
I need more information. What model # do you have. If the model # starts with 596, you most likely have a locked up compressor. Give me a little more information on what sounds you may hear or anything else you may notice about the running of the refrigeratior. Age?

I saw your response to another Kenmore frig and I have a similar problem I want to ask you about. I have a Side-by-side Kenmore frig(model 106.9555722) that we've had for 16 years!! Other than r


I have seen this one other time in all my years of appliance repair and changing out the "water inlet valve" corrected the problem. I don't have an answer to why it did, but it did. Here is the valve for your unit.
After you change the valve be sure to purge the water line for a good 5 - 10 mins to get all the nasty water out. Keep me posted!

GE Profile French door fridge. Water collecting below the bottom tray in the refrigerator. In addition some of the vents in the back panel are iced up. What causes this and how can I fix? Thanks


Sounds like your drain line is frozen. Every 6-8 hours your frig goes on defrost and takes the ice off the evaporator coil (the back panel you have ice on covers the evap coil). Besides the clogged drain you either 1)left the frig open and if you did turn it off for 24 hours or 2)you have a problem with your defrost system (heater, terminator, thermister, and either a defrost timer or board. It could be 1 or all of these and only using a meter will know for sure.

Upper portion (frig not cooling properly) Lower portion (freezer) forming ice on #3 setting.


Is it forming ice or frost? It sounds like an automatic defrost problem. If the freezer frosts up it won't circulate enough air up to the fresh food compartment. Try defrosting it manually for 24 hours by shutting it down and leaving the freezer door open. Afterwards, if it resumes normal operation I would bet that there is something faulty in the defrost circuit, i.e., defrost heater not working or defrost control.

Freezer works but frig is not cooling


I don't know this particular frig, but evidently the defroster doesn't work. Frost buildup has blocked the flow of cold air.

There is a defrost timer, under the frig, accessible from the front. You can turn it with a screw driver. Turn it till you hear a click. If the timer hasn't been turning, that should turn on the defroster, a heating element nested among the freezer coils. Wait half an hour and if it is defrosting, water should be dripping into the drip pan underneath the frig. If so, then replace the defrost timer and you're good to go.

If that doesn't make it defrost, then the problem is probably the defrost thermostat, in with the freezer coils. When the frig defrosts, the defrost heater stays on until the defrost thermostat gets warm. It should be open circuit while warm. But if it is open circuit while cold, it is bad and is the cause of your defrost problem.

If you open up the freezer coils, use a hair dryer to defrost. That is safer than hot water.

Hope you can fix it.
