Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

Open Question

I have a Sears Kenmore model 10651582200 side by side refrigerator that is freezing everything in the refrigerator. The damper seems OK. The Freezer setting is set at the lowest and I have the refrigerator (thermostat) set to the off position, yet it still runs and the refrigerator temperature is still in the freezer range. Is it the thermostat or is there another component that might cause this problem?

See if you have some paperwork on how to test, etc. located in a plastic bag taped up to the underside of the fridge. Pull the front vent cover off and you should see (feel) a bag taped up there with the test paperwork in it. If you don't have it let us know and maybe I can email it to you.

Sounds like it has a defrost problem.  Check for thick frost buildup on the back bottom panel in the freezer first and let me know what you find so I can steer you in the right direction.  Also, give me the entire model # from the sticker inside fridge.

SOURCE: Thermostat (1) Assembly defrost, (2) damper, (3)Thermostat???

If it is digital control its either the thermistor or the control itself, if it is manual then the problem is the thermostat.

Refrigerator side freezes


if the food in the fridge side is freezing it sounds like the damper door isn't closing,the way it works is cold air is produced in the freezer side,the evaporator fan blows the cold air from the freezer to the fridge side and it blows through the damper assy. if the damper door isn't closing youll have sub zero air constantly blowing into the fridge sidethe part number is 5304482075 but it's around 200 dollars.you can go here to sears and look up the parts or call a tech in to check it out

Where is damper door in a kenmore refrigerator model #9510681 side by side


If you can't see the damper door, it is most probably shut, possibly frozen or not working. Top of middle section, allows airflow from freezer to fridge part. Switch thermostat off, wait 20 mins, switch back on. If damper doesn't open, check stat and damper motor.

Past couple days the refrigerator side is freezing everything. turned the setting all the way back and still freezing......dont know if there is a thermostat and if its a DIY fix


Damper door is either broken, stuck open or stuck open and frozen with ice. Damper door is located in the top left corner of the "refrigerator side" of the fridge. Damper door may be concealed by an outer plastic covering usually held in place by a 1/4 inch screw.
Thanks and let me know if that helps,

Refrigerator freezes food regardless of dial setting. Control board?


Thank you. The part number you need is 240383703 at $146.18 thru Sears and is the control for the refrigerator not the freezer. The refrigerator control operates the opening and closing of the damper door which lets air pass from the freezer to the fresh food. The control is keeping the door open longer than it should. Hope this helps. Worth the repair and has been one of the most common problems with this model.

Kenmore refrigerator-- freezer is working fine. Refrigerator is freezing food. I changed the temp dials to send coldest air to freezer. Food is still freezing any suggestions.


I need the model number that Sears put on the fresh food section door to confirm. Until I know which model you have I need to assume that it has an electrically controlled damper between the freezer and 2 temperature controls. I also have to assume that they both are connected by their wiring to a Adaptive Defrost Control. If one of the three things listed is not working then that part will need replaced. Now there are cases when the damper door becomes stuck and you would need to unplug the power and open the rear panel in the back of freezer to see if frost or ice has the damper stuck wide open. Sears numbers look like this for example 231.564897 bottom of fresh food door behind door seal and near floor kick plate, Let me know what you find and I will be happy to help you, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Fridge compartment is freezing


It is the part # 2315515. It is a motororized contraption that opens and closes the baffle to let the freezer air into the refrigerator. It is one part. Mine shut closed. I removed the whole thing in hopes I can do without it. It will be a trickey proposition getting the freezer temp adjusted just right enough to keep the fridge just right enough. The repair man said they are seeing alot of these right about now. They don't make em like they used to.

Food in refrigerator freezing solid toward back of compartment


Been there, done that. You need to have a new computer board installed in the fridge near the top. Ours got hit by static lightning ang blew two of them in two years. When they go out, the defrost cycle fails and Ice builds up in the freezer in the back middle. Take the back vover off in the freezer and you'll see it packed with ice since the defroster is not getting the signal to defrost. order a new computer board, install it in the top of the fridge side, in the back, above all those controls on the back right side in a white case to hold the board. defrost the ice by using a hair dryer and letting all the water drain out and get it dry. Those PC boards do not like static at all
