Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
The fridge cools with the cooling coils . Then air is moved over the coils and circulated through the fridge side by a small blower or fan. The problem arises when the air is not circulated for some reason.
The reasons the air is not moving is usually two reasons
The first reason is pretty simple to fix, you simply replace the air circulator and things are good again.
The second reason can be :-
1.The timing device that runs the defrost cycle of the refrigerator is defective.
2.The heater coil that melts the water is shorted or not working
Usually the first thing to check is the heater coil. If there is resistance through the coil then most likely it is still good.
The timing device can be an advanced defrost control board or a mechanical timing device.
If the heater coil checks out to be good then the problem should be the timer.
In most cases, unplug the refrigerator and allow it to defrost on it's own .That will melt the ice and it will work again after restarting it. but still check for few days or weeks if it ices up to the point where it will not work again.if the problem comes again , then as explained above:--
The problem can usually be traced to one of three things.

Since those are the three components of the defrost system! If the timer and thermostat both work perfectly, if the heater is open, there is nothing to defrost the evaporator coil.
You should also check your fan motor http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/Kenmore-Parts/Refrigerator-Parts/4387244/0046/106/Model-10677292790/0582/0166000?keySuffixId=NA&productTypeId=x&searchModelNumber=10677292790&subCompDesc=Unit%20parts&brandDesc=KENMORE&modelDesc=REFRIGERATOR&blt=11 and make sure it is operational.
