Question about Kenmore 53642 / 53644 Side by Side Refrigerator

Open Question

Kenmore Elite Coldspot refrigerator: Model 106.44433603. The ice dispencer continues to freeze up and needs to be defrosted (blow dryer) every 2-3 weeks. The dispencer is on the door. Until you defrost the dispencer you cannot remove the container. This is the worse refrigerator I've ever owned...the last Kenmore product for me. Thank you, Dave W.

SOURCE: Kenmore Coldspot w/Ice Maker Not Making Ice

hi LOP7,
In most cases you can easily solve this problem.
step one would be to make sure your freezer is getting cold enough. If you have icecream in your freezer is it frozen solid or is it soft. Most icemakers cycle around 0 degrees and if your freezer is not getting to 0 then it will not cycle and it will not make ice.
Step two would be to make sure you icemake is cycling. To do this simply lift the little shut off arm on your icemaker and wait about an hour then go back to the icemaker and drop the arm down. The icemaker should start going through a cycle. You should notice the arm slowly begin to raise and the ice dispencer fingers will begin to turn. Then you will hear it call for water. You may hear a humm.
If the freezer is cold enough and the icemaker is cycling that only leaves the inlet valve. replace the valve and enjoy the ice.
If the freezer is cold enought and the icemaker does not cycle, then you have a bad icemaker. Simply replace the icemaker and viola.
Third if the freezer is not cold enought 0 defrees. Then you may have a defrost problem. In this case post more info and I will be happy to help. Good luck mca0824@aol.com

check the fan that transfers the cold air from the freezer to the fridge. thats where it comes from if you didn't know that. also check the the fan on the condenser at the bottom of the fridge. it should be blowing hot air off the condenser to facilitate the elimination of the heat from the condensing unit, just like your a/c does on the houe.

SOURCE: I am trying to respond

Chuck, Most times the defrost timer is located inside the fresh food compartment and behind the control panel same area as the temperature controls. The model number you listed has an 8 hour timer that should every 8 hours turn the compressor and fans off and send electrical power to the defrost element/heater behind the rear panel located in rear of most freezers. The defrost heater and the defrost thermostat are the main components inside the freezer. The third major component is the first part I listed, the defrost timer. And it is the part that is most likely is your problem. You will need to locate it and through a small opening turn the timer slowly clockwise until the compressor stops. The compressor should remain off for 25 minutes and during that time you should be having a manual defrost because you put the timer into defrost. After doing this wait that amount of time and listen for sounds of ice melting inside the freezer or water going to the defrost collection pan below your refrigerator. If it does not start back to the running after 25 min. turn the timer again clockwise until it starts. Let me know what you find, I can help you locate the problem and parts. Sea Breeze

Frig & freezer not cooling enough. Ice forming in back of bottom freezer.


You need to have the defrost cycle checked.( heater, limit stat, timer) If the frig can't defrost air can't move across your coils to cool properly. To temporarily get by until you can get a repairman, use a blow dryer to melt the ice build up. Once melted it will work normally for about 2 days till it freezes up again.

Refrigerator not cool, freezer ok


Either the freezer continues to freeze up (most likely due to low refrigerant, due to a leak), or there is an obstruction between the freezer and the refrigerator (refrigerators get their cooling from the freezer).

Given that it works after you defrost it, I'm going with low gas. Call a professional to see if the leak can be fixed. If the unit is more than 10 years old, just get a new one.

2002 Kenmore coldspot 51262103 model number Just hooked it up to water and it runs slow and the ice maker is blinking red.


Not sure if I resolved the issue, but after defrosting my icemaker, with a blow dryer for a second time. It seems to be working fine again.

Is it possible maybe there was some ice build up and every time it added more water for the ice cubes the water level was to high making it impossible for the auger to push the ice thru?
