Question about Kenmore 55612 / 55614 / 5561 / 655619 Side by Side Refrigerator

Temp. not holding up in the RED Model #59587990

Hi, Its me again. I had a tech to come out. When the tech got here everything was working fine. We explain to the tech that evey week the temp will go up and down and the ice trays will melt. He told me to call when the refrigerator was not cooling. He did tell me that it could be the relay or the thermostat. He said if it is running and not cooling its the relay and if its not running and not cooling it the thermostat. Charge me a service fee and told me to call when it is not cooling again. He never check anything. Now the temp. is up in the red and my food is warm. Any suggestions?? Thanks again for your help.

Call the man when it is acting up as he asked. If you turn on a light switch and the light comes on nothing can be found wrong. When you turn on a switch and the light does not come on someone can determine if it is the switch or the bulb that is the problem.

If the compressor is running while there is no cooling it could be such a thing as moisture in the system.

If the compressor is not running while there is no cooling it could be the thermostat control, or if the compressor is hot and not running it could be the relay as he stated but the condition must be evident for anyone to find it.

Frigidaire FRS26R2AW5 Refrigerator too cold on fridge side.


If the dampers are closing when you select warmer temp with the fridge temp control, there really isn't a way for the cold air to enter the fridge. Check to make sure the damper isn't opening back up after a while.

:
Hi!
A relay starts the compressor with a higher voltage and then quickly kicks out
It does a lot of clicking (trying to start over and over again)
If thats what is happening with yours
Its best for a tech to replace The relay but you can do it
Take your model number to your Local Appliance parts store they will have a diagram
showing you how to install the relay. Its called a hard start relay
I use part no ERP410 POWER START RELAY, CAPACITOR AND OVERLOAD all in one. (110 v)

HI,
You may have a failing door switch which is causing this problem, if you remove the bulb and close the door, the the red light out? If so, its possible you bulb is fine, you door switch has failed.
I hope this helps

I have an arcticaire a40ra model which usually holds temp at 4C. I came into work this morning and everything is frozen. I don't see a thermostat to adjust or reset temp. How do i adjust the temp?


There has to be a control somewhere on the fridge. Some newer models have digital controls located on the outer doors panels, or its going to be inside. Read your owners manual

Fridge temp is set on 1 and milk and eggs are still freezing.


This is a common problem and it has to do with the electronic temperature sensor. Check with Sears to see if there is either a recall or a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) for your model. They may try to get you to buy a new circuit board, but the solution is actually the temp sensor itself. (www.searspartsdirect.com) will give you the scematic as well as the part number. Just enter your model and press enter.

Temp not holding. temp up in the 60's


Possible poor connection where the fan was replaced on 6/9. Possible bad switch that turns the fan and light on and off as the door is used.
