Kenmore side by side refridgerator ice around freezer fan


I am looking up your refrigerator to see the right parts. Sounds like the defrost cycle is not happening. look for a defrost or adaptive defrost board. Check your model number again because I am not able to find the number listed. I will continue to check for the correct refrigerator and if you find a simple defost timer turn it clockwise slowly until you feel and hear a click. If you do and you may hear the elements heat up inside the freezer. If that happens just put a new defrost timer and you should be set. Sea Breeze

Kenmore 25.8 side by side with water freezing in the bottom of th


It sounds like the freezer drain is plugged up. When the frig goes into the defrost stage it melts the frost biuldup on the evaporator and the melted frost goes down a drain that is behind the evaopator cover. When this dran is plugged the water has no place to go and over several defrost cyles will actually run into the bottom of the freezer section. When the defrost cycle is over and the frig starts cooling again, the water freezes in the bottom of the freezer.

My Kenmore Fridge (bottom freezer type) not freezing


Look for problems you can see. Check for frost on the back wall of the freezer, If you find frost on the back wall locate the defrost timer and rotate the clutch head screw clockwise SLOWLY until you hear one click. With the timer now in the defrost position you will hear sounds in the freezer compartment such as expansion, sizzling, after a few minutes. If after say 25-30 minutes the system does not return to cooling mode ( Compressor starting) rotate the timer again SLOWLY until you hear a second click. This would indicate a bad defrost timer. If you get no defrost your problem could be a defect in the heater circuit such as an open heater or defrost thermostat. Normal defrost time would be 18-22 minutes.

Kenmore Refrigerator/Freezer not working - Freezer freezing up, fridge not working


I think you have a defrost system problem. Could be a defrost timer, or defrost heaters. (IF) you can locate the defrost timer it is possible to rotate the clutch head screw clockwise SLOWLY until you hear one click, wait about 30 minutes and the defrost should take place if the heaters are good. If the refrigerator fails to restart after the time period rotate the screw again SLOWLY until you hear the second click. The compressor will start again into the cooling mode. If you had to turn the screw the second time your defrost timer is bad and you need a new one.

Kenmore 106.7687461 about once a week refrig stop, light still on?


Try to locate the defrost timer. It sounds like the defrost timer has an intermittent fault and is not operating as it should. It should be situated in the compressor compartment. It is a white or black box with a little knob protruding from it. When the motor stops again, try turning the little knob on the timer untill you hear a loud click. The motor should then start running again. If it does, the timer is faulty. Replace it.

Works Off and On


Do you hear any clicking during the time it is not working? The start relay on the compressor may have a bad connection internally.
