Question about Kenmore 60721 Refrigerator

1 Answer

It's a Kenmore alright

I do not recall the model. Here are the basic facts. Six years old. Ice maker (not hooked up) freezer on top. Noticed several months ice trays not making ice. I turned up the dial to the higest temp. I usually kept it on 3 for freezer and main compartment. It did not work. I vacumned the coils, check the back all looked fine. It did not work.

Do you have any frost buld up in freezer compartment?if so sounds like a freezing issue.If no frost build up is your fan running in freezer part if not you may need evap fan or a manual defrost.Your fan may have ice stoping it from turning.If your fan is running you may need to pull off your start switch located on your compressor.Shake it around if you here noise like burnt parts in it you will need a start switch.And remmember never turn your fridge up full blast normal is good or you will freeze it up. Good luck:)

Should be covered alright. Sounds like the defrost therostat is open. Is you defrost heater coming on. It doesn't seam like it is. As you frig runs it's cycle it will turn off the compressor every hour or so and the timer will turn on the heater in your freezer to defrost. Do you feel this heater coming on. If you therostate mounted on the defrost ellement fails to close then your heater will not come on and ice will build up in you freezer. These thermostates seam to be failing more and more these days. I've replaced mine 3 times over the last few years.

Foul odor coming from freezer. Kenmore model w/ freezer on top.


Clean the refrigerator thoroughly fresh food and freezer under all drawers. Then place charcoal briquettes in each 8 or 10 total. 4 or 5 in the bottom of the fresh food section. leave the for several days. If that doesnt take away the smell consider if a mouse may have gotten into a fan blade and well that can create a really bad smell.

I replaced my "entire" ice cube maker (tube,hoses,water pump, ice maker) and it still pooled water at the bottom. I removed the back panel in the freezer and noticed the ciols go through a defrost cycle and water forms in tray under coils. I removed the lower panel on rear of fridge -and found a drain hose near the water solenoid/pump. I blew compressed air into the hose and hopefully unblocked it so it can drain into the pan not the freezer.
