Kenmore model 596 52679200 compressor starter rattles.

It might be on the way out I would get the new relay and have it ready when the box fails. leave it be till it goes on out. But be ready. If it was bad it would either not do nothing or overheat and shut off.

If you need further help, reach me via phone at

My kenmore side by side is working the freezer the fridge is not to goood running warm

Sounds like you have a defrost problem which is evident by your description.
Try putting freezer into defrost and see what happens.

To initiate a defrost cycle, open the door and push the light switch in and out 5 times within 6 seconds. The compressor and fans should shut off and the defrost heater should come on. Open the door and push the light switch in and out 5 times within 6 seconds to remove the refrigerator from the defrost mode and back into a cooling mode.

Maybe is it not compressor fault?

If you are 100% sure the compressor is not shutting down, then the expansion valve is bad, assuming that model has an expansion valve.

If a functional compressor stops producing cooling, then the refrigerant flow has stopped. Without refrigerant flow, heat transfer does not happen, and the attempt to pressurize the gas causes the compressor to get very hot.

It's possible that the valves in the compressor are shot, as well. If it's a thermostatic expansion valve, try applying heat to it to coax some flow through it.

Kenmore refrigerator is warm, freezer is melted down


if the compressor is running your ref. should be getting cold. Their is a defrost timer but when it is in defrost the compressor shuts off. I think you do have a leak.

any further question let me know.

Kenmore model 253 fridge cools then issues....

Ye, try to first replace the Relay, if that does not help then go to the run capacitor. Those are going to be your only 2 problems that you will have as long as the compressor is still doing its job by atleast running

Kenmore Elite refrigerator stops cooling - Relay keeps cycling

the relay on the compressor is most likely the culprit part# 8201786 you can buy it at the local sears parts and repair center it is very easy to replace it. your refrig compartment will start warming up soon. to prevent damage to your compressor probably a good idea to unplug the refrig until you get the part replaced..
