It sounds like your compressor has failed. The hum is the compressor trying to start and the click following is the over current protector opening.

Kenmore top mount refrigerator bought new in august 2010 - kept in a heated garage. have not had to use the freezer compartment up until now. we put meat in it and the meat got cool but did not freeze. ...


The refrigerator compartment thermostat may be the culprit. If you can remove it, you can check its calibration with iced water. Make sure you check the fan motor and the fan blade condition.

Refrigerator will not get cold, but freezer works


Make sure your fan is working ,its located behind the freezers back wall. If it is working the vent from the freezer down to the refrigerator may be blocked (usually with ice).With out a fan you have no circulation but your freezer may look likes its working,it may last 3 days.Also if you can move everything out unplug it turn it off w/ doors open untill all traces of ice are gone this will free up any clogged tubes. Good luck.

Frigidaire GS26HSZCC7


it sounds like it could be the defrost timer/board hanging up in defrost periodically. this refrigerator has an adaptive defrost control board that acts like a defrost timer. it keeps track of how long it takes the freezer to defrost and schedules the time between defrost cycles accordingly (to save electricity). old defrost timers would go thru a defrost cycle every 12 hours whether it needed it or not. so i would suspect that this control board may be malfunctioning. the control board is item # 1036287 at repairclinic.com. you will need a repair technician to test it and make sure it is bad before spending $75 on it.

Freezer is only cool, everything melting


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.
