There should be a cleaning cycle setting on the temp knob, run the cycle. If not then unplug the unit over night, this will allow any ice build up that may have occurred and created a blockage, to melt. Then plug it back in and set the temp a little colder than normal to see if it's working properly. If you still have the same issue, then the problem is more than likely the compressor and you will need a service man.

It could be the defrost control timer at fault. This controls when to defrost - and when the fan should come on.

Check this first.

    Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if
    there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not
    defrosting as it should.





    • possible causes:





    1. bad defrost timer


    2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)


    3. bad thermo switch in freezer

A kenmore side by side model 106 5661 2500 has warm refer and cold freezer


If the freezer temps are normal and the refrigerator is warmer than normal, the the air flow from freezer to refrigerator is being hampered either by ice on the evaporator or the freezer is stuff in such a way that normal airflow between freezer and fridge is hampered. If the auto defrost is not working properly you will have warmer freezer temps and a relatively warm refridge. Check the defrost timer and defrost heater element.

I have one and half year old Kenmore refrigerator. Model 106.58902802. Now suddenly refrigerator portion of it stopped working. All the ice cubes melted. Can you suggest what could be wrong?


Check compressor working. If yes,keep your arm on discharge side. It's warm and whistling sound (nicely) inside the freezer means it's working well.If no warm in discharge side, gas leak or chocked. Remove all gas, leak test and flush out the system. Then do gas charging.

My freezer is working great but my refrigerator is warm on my kenmore side by side refrigerator model # 59592992


Look for frost on the backside of the freezer. You might have a bad defrost heater. It could also be a bad evaporator fan motor.

Kenmore refrigerator Freezer is cold but fresh food side is warm


Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-fareast-font-family:"Times New Roman";} The fridge gets its cold air from the freezer through a vent(damper) between the freezer and fridge.The fan in the freezer blows air through it. Make sure this fan is running. You may have to hold the door switch in for it to run. There is a flap you adjust with the fridge temp. control. Make sure it's opening and closing when you adjust the fridge temp.
The problem could be the electronic control if you have one or the mechanical linkages.

Kenmore 5458 refrigerator too warm. Freezer


It is probely freezing up. The cool comes from the freezer to the ref. side and when it does not defrost it builds up frost or ice and then the air can not get through. Could be a timer or a defrost heater.
