Kenmore refridgerator 7 years old

Stopped working a week ago thought left door opened this week stopped again and had a tech come in he took out the relay said here that sound it was a clicking he said it's the compresser 600.00 to replace. I opt not to have it done he left with the refriderator not plugged I decided to plug it in when I did this the fridg stated to work again we hadn't clean underneath and the front vent so now it is all cleaned out and working like a charm.
Could you please tell me if this will happen again Also, do you think the tech should have check the wires on the compressor

Hi,
If the fridge has a grille round the back that gives off the heat, that might be covered with fluff and spiders which will be reducing it's ability to dissipate the heat from the compressor. It might be worth having a look at that. Otherwise, it might keep going for 25 years like mine has :-)
Hope this helps, D.

Refridgerator and Freezer Not Cooling (2 year old fridge)


Some of these had problems with the door light switches between the doors. They also control the fans. The top and bottom both have fans in back. Try opening top door and holding door light switch in. Wait for a couple minutes to see if fan comes on. Try with freezer too. If not coming on may need switch.

We have a Kenmore model 596.71864101 that is probably around 10 years old. The freezer is doing what it should but the refrigerator is not cooling. It did the same thing a few weeks ago, but suddenly...


There is a fan in the rear of the freezer that delivers cold air to the frig. Turn temp control down to make the freezer call for cold, the fan should also turn on, even if the door is open. This is an easy self install if it is the fan.

WATER QUIT RUNNING IN DOOR


Okay. My appliance is around four years old. The first time the water quit working was about a year ago (ice cubes / dispenser was fine). I just let it go and didn't worry about it. One day months later, I found it functional again. That lasted about a month or two, then it recently quit again. Tonight, I located the water supply line coupling under the unit on the left side under the freezer door, about five inches from the hinge. I separated the coupling (push lock type) and pressed the water dispenser lever. After a few seconds, the water flowed out just fine. I re-attached the coupling, turned the freezer coldness selector to 0 (off) opened the freezer door and fetched my wife's blow dryer. I ran the dryer along the inside of the freezer door near the black door seal frrom the hinge up to the water/ice dispencer compartment. I also ran it all along the back of the dispenseer compartment to the handle side of the door as I am unsure of where the water line runs. After about ten minutes of this, I attempted to dispense water with no luck. I continued with the blow dryer until the plastic and even the door seal were very warm to the touch. I closed the door and attempted to dispense water once again, and this time it worked. I turned the coldness selector back on. This time I set the freezer to 3 and the fridge to 7. I ran several cups of water through the dispenser since it's been sitting in the line for a while before drinking any. As for the "reservoir," I don't where or if one exists, but heating up the inside of the door from hinge to dispenser worked perfectly. Hope this helps someone!

Cheers!
