Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator
The refrigerator not cooling properly, seems to be holding at 60 degrees butthe freezer seems ok (although not thermometer tested). Pulled out frig last night and cleaned the dust out (air compressor and vacuum). Have a svc. call in but they can't come until Tues. Any suggestions on what I can look for or test?
Check inside back wall of the freezer for frost buildup. It would be a sign that the defrost system is not working and the coil inside the back wall is frozen over stopping air circulation to the refrigerator.
Defrost system has a timer that energizes a heater and a defrost termination switch which shuts off the heaters when the coil is warm enough for all ice to be melted. If you have the frost, locate the defrost timer and turn the clutch head screw clockwise SLOWLY until you hear one audible click, the compressor will shut off and the system will be in defrost. After 18-22 minutes the refrigerator should restart automatically. If it does not restart after 25 Minutes turn the timer screw again to the second click. Refrigerator will then start. Replace the timer.
If it restarts after the 18-22 minutes and does not defrost ether the heater or defrost thermostat is bad.
