Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
The problem is likely the relay/capacitor assembly mounted on the compressor (usually it is the capacitor, replace both). Before replacing the relay/capacitor, try performing a complete defrost by leaving power not connected overnight. I do not think that will fix the problem.
Before replacing the capacitor, call Kenmore at the number listed on the owners manual and check your warranty. Warranty on parts lasts longer than one year.
The relay/capacitor assembly is mounted at the base of the compressor. See parts 10 and 11 in the diagram at the bottom of the page.
Here the replacement parts in a single kit:
If replacing the kit does not fix the problem, then the compressor is shot. That would be very unusual in a fridge with few years of service. The compressor is warranted for more than ten years, in case of a defective compressor, the part will be provided free of charge by Kenmore.
Replace the relay kit, that should fix the problem.
