Question about Kenmore Refrigerators

1 Answer

I have a Kenmore Coldspot Model 106. Here's the problem: When the unit needs to run to keep the freezer/refrig cold, it does so for about 10-15 seconds. Then it shuts off for about 2-3 minutes. Then tries to run again. It keeps going thru this cycle. The condensor fan is running. The coils are clear of dust. The compressor is warm to hot. The relay(?) connected to the compressor keeps clicking off at the end of the 10-15 seconds run time. I've looked at the relay. There is a small burn mark on the back. I think the relay has burned out and now turns off the compressor off after trying to run for 10-15 seconds. What do you think?

Have kenmore coldspot model # 106 manufactured 08/97 that drain is not operating bottom of freezer ices over no matter what temp.is set at


Need the complete model number for this unit, but I am going to guess that you have a defrost problem with the freezer, more than a drain issue.

Refrigerator not cool, freezer ok


Either the freezer continues to freeze up (most likely due to low refrigerant, due to a leak), or there is an obstruction between the freezer and the refrigerator (refrigerators get their cooling from the freezer).

Given that it works after you defrost it, I'm going with low gas. Call a professional to see if the leak can be fixed. If the unit is more than 10 years old, just get a new one.

Kenmore Coldspot Model 71182101


I have the same problem. The refrig and freezer are cold but not freezing and not cold enough. I have a friend tell me it probably is the relay. His did the same and that was the issue.
