See if the fan is running inside. If not replace the evaporator fan. Check the lint/dust buildup under the ref. Clean if necessary. Also see if you ca find the defrost timer on it. (should be in the refrigerator side.)

Try to turn the little dial on it with a screwdriver and see if it comes out of the defrost cycle. if it does, it is a bad timer.

Is the coil freezing up in the freezer compartment? This could be caused by a bad timer or the defrost heater/terminator is bad..This will also cause the refigerator side not to cool.

Also, check and make sure the light turns off in the fridge side when the door is closed.Check by depressing the switch located somewhere close to where the door touches it.

if the compressor is running and not freezing, you may have a refrigerant leak. If not, then if the defrost timer is working, the door switch is good and fan runs, you may have a bad compressor.

My Kenmore Coldspot Refrigerator, Model # 59028991 will stop cooling for no reason. When I turn it off and then turn it back on it starts cooling again. What is the most likely problem and can I fix it.

Hi, Sounds like you need a new thermal switch. Go to your Kenmore dealer and order a new one.
If you have mechanic ability try to install it yourself or have someone help you with it.
Good luck.

My freezer cools properly but my refrigerator is not staying cool .its kenmore and bought from sears 2004 $1000. side by side refrigerator

Quick temporary fix - defrost the freezer (inside frezer lower back) it is probably full of frost/ice - this prevents air flow and therefore no air enters fridge side. common failure due to bimetal defrost thermostat failure ($20) - replace this part for a permanent fix - also advisable to swap out the defrost timer at same time
