Refridge. compartment warm

Hello 22yooper. Thanks you so much! I didn’t see your second reply until now. I kept getting redirected to your first reply. Had I seen it on the 26th when you sent it, I wouldn’t have ended up ordering a new fridge I can’t afford right now. When I called the store where I bought the troubled fridge, they said… oh no. It’s all over. You’ll have to get a new one. And I took their word for it. But what you’re saying makes more sense. It feels like a circuit breaker problem to me. Maybe when my mate gets home, we can pull the thing out of the cabinets and get it working, and somehow convince the store (the delivery isn’t till Tuesday, but it's not the same store as the people who advised me) to cancel our order. What troubles me, knowing the back of this fridge, is that it’s a “flatback” fridge, completely encased in back for use in open-spaces… lofts etc. It’s a totally hermetic object. Hope I figure out how to get into it and find what you call the “temperature” with the two wires attached. Is that the same as the thermostat? And alternatively, find the circuit-breaker. At any rate, your help is clear and first rate! Can’t thank you enough. Sincerely, tumeric.

Thermostat, (cold control) are one and the same. Different manufacturers use different terms that have the same meaning.

Refrigerator side is not cooling - too warm


Hello,
You have something wrong with the vent going from the freezer to the fridge. You probably have a defrost problem and ice is blocking the vent that goes from the freezer and comes out in the roof of the refrigerator compartment. Replace your defrost timer and bimetal

you didn't give me much...that said, try a full defrost of the unit. You probably have a buildup of ice caused by condensation. This is probably because the door seal isn't doing its job well. If the coils that do the cooling are not exposed, you must either wait for a full defrost...about 2 days or figure out how to remove the covering panels and go about melting the ice. If you do, be sure that any heating equipment...like a hair dryer...be kept from getting wet. If this happens again, you probably have low gas levels in the box...you'll need a tech. Be sure you unplug the box.

How to check for low gas: Once the unit is defrosted, start it up with the coil covers off...after about 5 minutes, you should see an even coat of frost at both ends of the coils. If not, wait 5 minutes more. If still not, you're low. Alternate method: Go round back and find the compressor...the big black thing. It has a couple of pipes sticking out. The largest is the suction line. Start the unit. Wait about 5 minutes. It will frost up. It should either get dry or form liquid condensate on it if you've got enough gas. If it stays frosted, you're low.

Hope this helps.

Bottom freezer frosts up,top refridge gets warm


It sounds like you have a defrost component issue (e.g.: defrost thermostat, defrost heater(s) or defrost timer). Contact an appliance service company.

I have an error code inside my kenmore french door bottom freezor refridge. The fridge is getting warm,


This is an error code for the icemaker fan motor.
If the control does not see a signal coming back from the fan motor you will get this error code.
Please see the image below from the service manual that explains the ER IF error code.

http://media.fotki.com/1_p,wkbwtkdqbqkgrkkxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/ktfgsrbbdxktrrwffdr/1/1303472/5961857/image18067img-or.jpg

The ER IF code indicates a failure of the icing fan.

You may notice slower ice production but the other fans should be okay.

You can select the ultra ice option and see if the fan toggles on.

The fan or the control is bad.

If this is not the error code you are getting - please reply with the actual one.

Refridge quit cooling suddenly inboth freezer


That could be a broad range of possibilities. The defrost timer, adaptive defrost board,compressor start relay, compressor start capacitor or a mother board. Would you happen to have the model number so I can narrow down those possibilities? If you pull away from wall remove cover over the compressor and then unplug. Touch the compressor and let me know if cool, warm or too hot to touch. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Fresh food side warm. Freezer works fine.


I think you are short of refrigerant, needs to be topped up and checked for leaks.

Refridge. compartment warm


Not fridge death. If nothing is running it is a good sign that it is repairable. Unplug it. Where the temperature is located, remove it if you can. There will be two wires connected to it. Connect these two wires together and then plug in the refrigerator. It should run and cool. If this makes it run and cool your problem is the thermostat. Replace it.

If it does not run from above, the compressor may have a burnt overload protector or wire off.

Kenmore Elite refrigerator stops cooling - Relay keeps cycling


the relay on the compressor is most likely the culprit part# 8201786 you can buy it at the local sears parts and repair center it is very easy to replace it. your refrig compartment will start warming up soon. to prevent damage to your compressor probably a good idea to unplug the refrig until you get the part replaced..
