Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Follow-up... Mr. Mike, Thank you for your response... I tried defrosting the fridge, and came to the point in which i have to check the fan and it is working. I turned the fridge side switch all the way to off to see if the fan will come off but it did not turn the fan off. I am not an electrician, so is there any suggestion on what else do i have to check? I really do appreciate any info that you can give me... Again, thanks in advance... Rowel

Could be a bad fan motor. A bad defrost part or a bad control board.
Check for ice buildup on the back wall of the freezer. If so you have bad defrost parts or a bad control board.
Enter your model number at www.appliancepartspros.com to find the exploded view to dis-assemble the freezer. You can also order parts from them.

Freezer works but fridge remains warm.


The same fan that circulates air in the freezer also blows air in to the fridge. If you open the freezer door and hold the door switch closed you should hear the fan running. If not you have a failed motor or motor control. Look at the back wall of the freezer section and see if there is a heavy frost build up. If so. you have a defrost system problem. Please post back with what you find and with the complete model number and I will try to walk you through the steps of checking everything.
Thanks/Mike

My bottom freezer gets cold but the top part (fridge) does not. Why? I have an older first addition style


Its defrost problem.When the freezer section gets cold and reaches its required cooling temperature, after that the frost on freezer section starts defrosting and the cooling fan in the freezer section blows this cool air from freezer to fridge. But if the defrost cycle does not start then over ice will get collected on freezer ventilations and that will block the air passing section from freezer to fridge, so the freezer gets cool but fridge section does not cool.Try manual defrost by unplugging the refrigerator from main power outlet for 24 hours then reconnect it and check, if the same problem is noticed again,. If yes then its defrost board problem. The defrost board located in the back of fridge section. You can get required parts from www.repairclinic.com or from online sears part site. ------------- Thank you.
