Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

Is the compressor HOT to the touch? If so unplug the unit for at least 30 minutes and plug it back in.
If the compresor is cold then it may be stuck in the auto defrosting mode. When this happens usually either the 60 Deg F Bi-metal thermosat or a thermistor has failed. Items 30 and 31 this link: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-elite-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/Model-59675523400/0583/0161000/M0705003/00010?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

(Evaporator

If that checks out then we start replacing the PTC relay and thermal overload on the compressor IF there is power to the compressor. Otherwise we start looking at temp controllers and themal fuses.

You make have to access the links above via this page http://www.searspartsdirect.com
Then enter your model number as 596.75523400 under find it fast / model search.

The other possibility is the electronic control item 5 under "controls":

The only way to find out is to read out the circuits with a meter.

Thanks for choosing FixYa

Refrigerator has stopped cooling. fan still running and compressor is warm. what is wrong?


Several things could be wrong. The simplest is that the coils under the refrigerator are dirty with dust and need cleaning; or other parts may not be working properly. Go to the link below for a video that discusses the operation and various components of the refrigerator. Good luck. Kenmore Refrigerator Not Cold Enough

Compressor doesn't sound as if it is running...power light is on ...is there a reset button for compressor? I have a kenmore chest freezer model #16949


Good day,
Sorry, no reset but if the compressor is not running, it could be the thermostat as well. You will need a VOM meter to check to see if power is reaching the compressor.
If it is, it could be the compressor overload protector, the compressor start relay, which are both under a cover on the side of the compressor.

Kenmore Freezer Model 253.26732104 Compressor


the defrost timer may need reseting. when the defrost is on, it cuts power to the compressor so they don't run at the same time. it's usually behind the bottom front grate on the right side. also check the main circuit board. there's a fuse on it.

If the freezer was stored and not running for 7 years it may have lost coolant.  Since the compressor is running recharging the coolant may fix the problem.  Hot compressor might indicate low coolant since its motor is immersed in it.

Unplug the Ref for 15-20 min., plug it back in and listen for the compressor to start. You will need to be behind the Ref so you can tell if the compressor or the fan is running. It will help to take the cover off so you can see the compressor.
Compressor not running but you hear a clicking noise. The relay needs to be replaced.
Compressor runs but not cooling. Low on coolant

Kenmore compressor cycles and does not cool


It sounds like you have a stuck compressor or bad start capacitor.

I also have the same refrigerator model 106.56566400 and periodically when the power goes off in the house the refrigerator & freezer will stop cooling. Try pushing the on/off button located inside the refrigerator to the left of the digital temperature controls. Hold the button down, this turns the unit off, then press it again to turn it back on. This basically resets the refrigerator, and most of the time works to get the refrigerator cooling again. Try this first before calling a repair man.

Refrigerator stopped.


There is no fuse in this refrigerator other than a fusable link located in the ice maker harness at the ice maker itself. There is an automatic reset breaker overload assm located on the side of the compressor that controls only the voltage to the compressor itself. Give specific details about your problem. Do lights come on, fan or fans run? supertechks
PS:find the model # on the identification plate, it will start 106.########
