Sounds like a defrost problem or dirty coils under the machine. 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/control board
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

Kenmore 21 refrigerator not getting cold - freezer still pretty cold (top) - perhaps not all the way


you have a defrost prblem or a leak in the sealed system.if you see frost built up on back freezer wall then it is a defrost problem also check evaporator fan motor to see if it is running.if machine is in defrost you wont hear it.so when compressor is running see if fan is running.

Fridge not getting cold


Hello swill688
Welcome to fixyz

You said, Your Kenmore refrigerator not getting cold

What is the model number?
And how old is it?

First check that the freezer is not filled packed full, and covering the air passage vents in the rear of the freezer! The fridge and the freezer share cold air from the compressor.
and his can cause the fridge to get warmer.
The other 2 things may be, either the coolant is low and needs to have the pressure checked then perhaps a sot of freon.
Or the thermostat may be malfunctioning!

I hope the freezer is packed to full, this is the easy way out of this situation!

Let me know!
Please remember to leave a rating before you leave us!

Thank You, Huuum

Refrigerator not cold.


if the freezer section is still working ok then check for ice build up inside freezer on the back wall, its possible that the unit is not defrosting and ice is building up on the cooling coils, the most common culprit is the def thermostat. easiest way for you to get it going again fast is to manually def the coil.

remove the 2 screws about half way down the back freezer wall. then using a blow dryer def the ice from the coil.

since this refrig has an electronic def control i would recomend calling a reputable service company to check it further for you..
