Kenmore cold spot refrigerator freezer

I have a Kenmore Cold Spot refrigerator freezer #59592990. When you open up the front doors the lights come on, but neither the refrigerator or the freezer get cold. Any suggestions? At first the fridge was just doing defrost cycles (freezer side) now the fridge and freezer sides were warm when i woke up. wtf? before when it defrosted for too long or the freezer completely thawed, I just turned it off for a few sec.s and back on and it worked. do these fridges need to be charged w/ coolants,etc.???

    I took the back panel off. it was cardboard w/ insulation glued onto it! unplugged the fridge, vacuumed all the dust although there wasn't much...and plugged it back in, the fan came on immediately and i heard some thing switch on for about two secs then it switched back off. It seems like there is cool air blowing through the vents in the panel, but still no cold air in the fridge. could this be like a circuit board thermostat malfuctioning?

I would look to the condenser where the heat is removed from the refrigeration system for your problem. Check and make sure the condenser fan operates, check the compressor for operation. If the condenser is plugged with dust it will cause the compressor to cycle on its thermal overload protector. Normally in back there is a removable panel to access the condenser and compressor area. make sure you reinstall the cover after you are done. It is critical to proper operation and cooling of the system.

    You Compressor has failed, The switch you heard was the compressor trying to start , then the click was the overload protector opening.

We have the Kenmore model #795.78309.800 and the freezer drawer track keeps freezing up and make it almost impossible to open the freezer. This just started the other day.


the most common problem is a bad sealing door ,when the door is closed it is not supposed to let warm air in and cold air out ,but if the seal is faulty then the opposite happens and this causes the build up of ice,take a good look at the door seal a good way of finding out if this is the problem is to run your fingers around the seal when the door is closed for a while if faulty you will find a warm spot where the cold and warm mix causing a warm spot.adrian,,,,,,,,,,

I would replace the evaporator fan, this fan problem is hard to diagnose because the fan will spin but not fast enough to circulate the chilled air thru the freezer and the refrigerator. The minimum cost to repair/replace is around $300.00

Is this a self defrost model? Frost inside the freezer could be an air leak around the door gasket. Remove the back panel in the freezer and completely defrost the coils. Is the fan running in the freezer. That will make the frig not be cool. With the door closed peek in the gasket to make sure the light is shutting off, this will warm a frig also.

Frost buildup in ice-dispenser tube


Open the freezer door and look down the ice chute while you shine a flashlite up the dispenser cute from the outside. If you see light around the chute door, it needs to be replaced. The problem you describe is almost always air laekage around that flap. Post back if you need more help.
