Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
Our 2 1/2 year old refrigerator totalling stopped cooling yesterday. The light is still on and we could hear a faint hum but the compressor stopped. We found quite a bit of ice on the back inside wall of the freezer and decided to unplug the thing and let the ice melt in hopes that the compressor will kick on when we plug it back in. Is there anything else we can do before calling in the big guns?
I had a problem with my Viking where the light stayed on in side and was causing havoc with the coling system.
I saved 200.00 doing this.
get a cell phone or a small video camer place it inside the fridge and record to see if the light stays on when the door is closed.
If it does. You may just have a light switch to replace or like I did readjust the push spring that the door hinge hits to active the switch.
Once I did this the light went out and the fridge started cooling normally. the lights will heat up inside the fridge and screw up the thermostat. then the fridge will start to cycle. not good for the compressor.
hope this helped.
