Fridge too cold!


don't forget that just turning down your fridge temp dose not mean your problem might be over yet. the freezer setting may also be too high & that will affect your fridge temp as well. i set both my control settings to around 50% of what is on the scale & that works perfect for my 7 yr old fridge. also, very important, is make sure the freezer portion is going through it's full defrost cycles, or it will freeze the upper portion inside the fridge. you should not have any frost build up in your fridge, nor should you have any in your freezer. that's why they call them FROST FREE. try the slow temp decrease over a period of a few days & hopefully that will work for you. good luck.

Hello Racinfrogs,

You are most likely looking at a serious FROST blockage...

FIRST thing to check... YOUR DEFROST pan...

If dry... you have found your TROUBLE..

A serious FROST
blockage can be caused by SEVERAL
air intrusion issues... Ice cube stuck: holding chute door open... or a pizza box holding any door ajar... Perhaps even a failed (or poorly aligned) DOOR GASKET...

(all these will be burdening your defrost pan: lots of water)

FINALLY... and very common
A DEFROST CIRCUIT FAILURE.
(this will be manifested by a DRY defrost pan)

Easiest... Part to check & change

Your REFRIGERATOR has a defrost timer...
Check here for replacement part (wp67001036)
and INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO...
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/whirlpool-timer-defrost-wp67001036-ap6010261.html

In addition to their instructions.. I always SUGGEST
you should take pictures and notes of what COLOR
wire goes where... BEFORE getting in trouble...!!

There are only 2 (two) other parts to the defrost circuit...
EASY once you understand...
- Thermal switch to keep defrost temperature v-low
- heater element (ungoverned can ruin food/plastic).

Hope this helps... ELSE comment me
back BEFORE getting in trouble.

Pricewise (using part number) also check eBay

Refrigerator is not cold


Hi Louis,

This is what has happened. Due to the door being opened for so long moisture which is naturally in the air has collected on your freezer coils. What you need to do is turn the whole thing off for at least 24 hours. Open the doors and put some towels around it to let the frost melt out.
All the air that gets cooled in your unit gets cooled by a fan that pulls air through those coils. Once the frost has melted out of them it should cool just fine.

Not cool enough


Make sure the air door in the refrigerator compartment is open at least a little and not blocked by anything. This is located just to the left of the bottom drawers. Also check the air inlet located at the top left rear of the refrigerator for flow. If none is present then you have a frost buildup caused by frequent opening and closing (common to these models) an ice cube dispenser door hanging partly open (Also common). Check this by looking from the inside of your freezer door down the ice chute. A flashlight helps a lot here. Also may be a defrost issue.

Kenmore fridge not working, ice cubes wet, freezer frosting up


You may need a new defrost module. The coils ice up when it is not working. This makes the fridge and freezer only a little cold. About 150 to 250 bucks to fix if you call a service person. Under a hundred for the part.

Kenmore Refrgierator is not cooling enough


Is the frost on the entire surface of the evaporator or just a portion. If it is only frosting on a portion there is a possibility your system has developed a leak and has lost some of the charge. Or your compressor has lost its ability to pump the gas. A bad condenser fan motor overtaxes the compressor and can cause premature failure. If it is a bad compressor it may be time to replace the refrigerator. Replacing the compressor is an expensive job and the warranty is only one year on a replaced compressor.
