Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. I think all you have done is cause what we call a high side thermal overload condition. Unplug the unit for about 20 minutes then plug it back in. What has happened is that the coolant pressure is very high at the moment. The compressor WILL NOT restart with a high coolant pressure. All you will hear is the compressor attempt to start about every 5 minutes give or take 1 minute. Due to the high coolant pressures the compressor rotor is locked by the high pressure and will not rotate. All you need to do is let it stabilize for about 20 minutes and it should work fine again.
If after you unplug it for 20 minutes and restart it the compressor still does not run just respond here and I will help you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Our 11 year old side by side Kenmore, Model 896-50692000, was found to be low on freon. Additional freon was added. As a result I'm "gunshy" and bought thermometers to monitor temps in both...


Hi,
Yes... if you are just seeing the temp. rise intermittently then it is related to the defrosting of the coil... a necessary evil that needs to be done periodically...

As long as the temps. drop again and do not stay up long term... (over 40 minutes) I would not get alarmed...

Kenmore refrigerator stop cooling but fan working


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.

If the evaporator coils behind the back panel of the freezer are icing up because of auto defrost failure that will stop the circulation of cold air and eventually affect the freezer too.

check defrost timer, defrost heater, defrost thermostat. In most newer models the timer has been replaced by an electronic control board. If the heater and thermostat are ok it’ll be the control.

You can turn the defrost timer till it clicks and everything shuts down. The heater should now come on. If it does, replace the timer. If it doesn't, check the heater and defrost thermostat. Turn the timer again till everything starts back up to end the defrost cycle.


Your evaporator coils frost up in normal use and every eight hours or so the entire unit shuts down and the defrost heater comes on to melt the frost. This cycle last about 20 minutes. The melted frost drips into a drain pan and through a drain tube to the drain tray under the freezer/refrigerator where it's evaporated by the condenser fan.

Kenmore Side by side unit has stopped working


turn both dials to 5 and wait for an hour, when it first conmes on they go into a defrost automatically, the defrost controller isa in the upper left hand side of the refrigerator compartment and may be an adaptive technology one that is just a circiuiot board thats about 4 by 4 and behind the area thats betwqeen the back dammper and the front of the unit. It may have fried and that wopiuld explain why your frig does not work.,
