Question about Kenmore 73502 / 73504 / 73509 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Top refrigerator doesn't work, the bottom freezer doesn't. I know that there is a way to set the defrost on the controls but I don't know where the diagnostic book is. ( one door open holding up/down arrows)
If you have frost on the back wall of the freezer section you do have a defrost problem. If there is no frost your compressor may be the problem. Check and clean the condenser in back behind a removable panel. reinstall the panel after cleaning. If you hear a hum and a click in back of the refrigerator the compressor has malfunctioned.
If the problem is in the defrost locate the timer, usually mounted near controls for temperature. A hole in that area will give access to the screw to turn the timer into defrost. It is a clutch head screw and can only be turned in a clockwise direction. Turn it SLOWLY until you hear one click. The system will be in the defrost mode. If after 30 minutes the system fails to return to the cooling mode turn the screw a little further until you hear a second click (replace timer). The system will restart in cooling. If it restarts after 18-22 minutes and defrost does not happen you problem is in the defrost heater circuit (Call for service).
