Question about Kenmore 73502 / 73504 / 73509 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Refrigerator is FREEZING everything

We have the french doors on top /freezer draw on the bottom. Temp is set to 44F now and we still can't get the refrigerator temp to raise above 34. It is also making a 'purring' sound.

I think you have a problem with the evaporator damper controller. it closes the air coming to the evaporator and it could be stuck or there is also a probability that you have a faulty evaporator temperature sensor. if it does not sense that it is already cold in the evaporator section then it will not initiate to close the damper to minimize the air going to the evaporator.

Why are vegetables freezing in crisper?


There is a control on refrigerator that controls the amount of cold air that is directed from freezer to refrigerator section. Locate that control and lower the amount of cold air going into refrig.

Fridge is freezing everything


Check the top of the inside of the fridge. There is usually a flap door mechanism that sometimes falls off or sticks. This regulates the temp in the fridge.

Ice block


There is some cooling in the freezer which is allowing the temp to raise above freezing for a brief period. Check gaskets and or the temp setting. Is ice cream hard or soft. Ice cream freezes at around 15-18 degrees. My guess is that the door gasket is allowing air inside the box.

At this point I am not sure if your Auto Damper that regulates the cold air is stuck closed or if the thermistor that controls the damper is responsible. You could also be having a defrost problem restricting the air flow to the fresh food section. Look into rear of freezer to see if there is a layer of frost building on rear panel. If yes then we will need to focus in a different direction. First by manually unplugging fridge and then using a hair dryer to help speed things up. The manual also has diagnostics test that you can do to locate a problem area like thermistors or many other errors will show once placed into diagnostics. Sea Breeze

Refigerator is freezing food


Hi, this problem is going to be with the running thermostat. It has gone bad and stays open which in turn will keep the compressor running continually. It can normally be located in the control panel inside the fridge. Locate the thermostat and replace it. If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Good Luck!!

Ice at the bottom of the freezer


It sounds like the freezer has leaking door seals and air is getting in to the freezer compartment. Your temperatures are set about right. Regards
