  • could be stuck in defrost
  • the defrost timer is in the control panel in the refrigerator
  • look for a small 1/2 inch hole where you can put a flat screwdriver in and turn the dial a little.
  • if it turns on then you know the defrost timer needs to be replaced
  • or
  • look for disconnected wires or burnt wires.
  • could be a bad start switch on the compressor.

Freezer stayed cold but upper compartment wouldn't. Freeze started having problems with staying cold. I just paid $377 to get the two year old evaporate fan replaced. It is located inside the frig behind the panel in the freezer compartment. It took about 15 minutes. Seems this part is part of the evaporator system but not covered by anything other than the first one year warranty. Problem solved but what a ripoff from Kitchenaid.

Check the compressor start device. The fans will be running and the compressor fan will be running but the compressor is problaly not running. If it is then it could be the compressor itself that is not oumping.

The bottom freezer of my Kenmore Refrigerator works fine but the top refrigerator compartment no longer cools? Thanks


All the cooling happens in the freezer.The refer section relys on a fan to blow cool air into it.When you open the freezer you should hear a fan running.If you hear the fan running, close the freezer door and open the refer door. Look for the vent/area where the air comes in.Put your hand in front of it.If little or no air is coming out it could be a sign of an icing/defrost problem restricting the air to the refer section.
It will take a tech with the right tools to find the exact problem.
If the fan is not running you will have to unplug the unit and remove the back of the freezer section from the inside and make sure ice is not keeping it from turning.If it is free of ice then replace the fan motor.

Top refrigerator not ccoling and bottom freezer


check the condenser temperature when the compressor is running by hand it must be warm or hot if it is not then that means no refrigerant left in the system.This can be a possible cause.

It is the compressor that has failed. The hum is it trying to start and the following click is the overload protector opening. What is the temperature where the refrigerator is located? Allow the compressor to cool down before trying to restart it. If it still does not restart after it has cooled off it is done.
