Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
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=
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.
Items 10 and 11 this link:
