Freezer section of Kenmore Self Defrost Refrigerator Mfg. 4/07

Food and tops of food containers are forming ice on them. For example, cool whip container top has a thin sheet of ice on it and inside the cool whip, ice had formed on the whip cream.

Temperature has been set at the manufacturer's recommended setting.

Very little food is stored in the freezer

This is a Kenmore top freezer refrigerator. The model number printed inside the refrigerator is 253.67879506 but I can't find that model number listed. Serial # is BA71805062

What you have found as a model number may in fact, be a part number for the inner lining.
Check your owner's manual for the model number.

Check to see if your unit is equipped with a setting for humid/dry climates and if it is present, it should be set to correspond to yours.

The defrost cycle melts concealed, built-up frost, with an internal heating element.
That produces water that should normally drain through a hidden path down to the evaporation tray at floor level under your unit.

If the path is blocked, the water will find its way into the interior and refreeze wherever it lands.

Gaining access to the element and the drainage path can be a real pain in some refrigerators and requires removal of the liner of the freezer for access.

Good luck.

How can i fix it when kenmore type JD21, model 970-432603 refrigerator not cold but freezer is cold


Ice build up on the coils can cause this. If there is ice then you need to check the defrost timer first to see if it works. Then check the defrost coil, then the fan.

Why is my kenmore freezer cold, but refrigerator not even when set at highest temp?


Hello Donna;

My name is peter. I am a retired field service refrigeration technician.

You have not provided your unit model number, which is located in your fresh food section on a label, on the side wall near the top.

You only have one cooling source, and that is your freezer. Your freezer feeds your fresh food section. This is through a direct air vent.

Reach into your fresh food section where the air vent from the freezer goes into the fresh food section. Do you feel cool air? Probably not.

So, either the air vent is frozen up with ice which you can clear with a hair dryer, or you have a automatic air vent motor/ sensor assembly that is bad.

Give me more information and I will help you.

Freezer ok, fridge not cooling


That could be the motor up in the freezer is not working or it could be a defrost problem. If you see frost on the back side of the freezer that is most likely a failed defrost circuit. If you cannot hear the fan motor or possibly a fan switch mounted in the door jamb. Sometimes the drain can stop p and water puddles between the top and fresh food bottom. Forms a slab of ice and blocks the cold air from getting to the fresh food section.

Water collects at bottom/Ice forms in top


Hi,

The defrost drain is located just under the cooling coils in the back of the freezer. You will need to unload the food and remove the shelves from the freezer. Take the back panel off from inside the freezer and you will see a hole just below the coils. Flush it with hot water using a turkey baster or small hose. See the link below for more details.

Refrigerator section does not cool; freezer works fine


Check the settings first. They should be set to the factory settings in most cases. Otherwise check the back of your freezer to see if it is icing up, you may need to remove the back panel to see the ice. If this is the case the ice may be preventing the fan to circulate the cold air into the freezer and you will need a new defrost timer. However if there is no ice and the fan never kicks on you may need a new fan motor.

Whirlpool Refrigerator fresh food section cool but not cold (freezer ok).


The most likely problem is in the defrost system. Behind the freezer panel there is not only an evaporator fan, but also the evaporator itself, and a defrost heater, termination bi-metal, and drain pan (or trough). You will likely find ice build-up in the evap coil. This could be caused by the defrost timer, the heater, or the termination bi-metal.
Have a service tech look at the unit.

Refrigerator and freezer not cooling/freeding


Possibly a defrost circuit problem -

1) Bad defrost thermostat
2) Bad defrost heater
3) Bad defrost timer
4) Failed evaporator fan motor.

Look for frost accumulated inside the louvers at the back panel, top and bottom. If you see it, remove food from freezer and put in ice chest. Take out shelves, get hair dryer and warm the backside of the freezer, directing air down the louvers. Then leave to sit for 4-6 hours with the freezer door open. Put towels in the bottom of the freezer to catch any melted ice.
After period of time, plug unit back in and power the unit back up. Once you know it's cooling, empty ice chests back into freezer.

If there is a problem in any of the above components, then it will show up in 3-4 weeks witht he same problem again.

Fresh food section not maintaining cold temp


You're frozen up.  Defrost completely.  Then, clean your condenser.  Make sure to never leave open containers in the fridge...water condenses into ice.  If you still have problems, you may be low on gas.
