MAKE SURE THE FAN AT THE TOP IS WORKING IN THE FREEZER.PUSH ON BUTTON FOR LIGHT WITH DOOR OPEN IF NOT OIL IT WITH SOME LIGHT WEIGHT OIL (SYNTHETIC IS BEST) TAKE IT OFF AND OIL BOTH SIDES! IF THE FAN WORKS= NEXT I WOULD TAKE THE SHELVES OUT OF THE FREEZER AND TAKE OFF THE BACK WALL. SEE IF IT IS FROZE UP , IT WILL LOOK LIKE A BIG BLOCK OF ICE . IF IT IS DEFROST IT. A FAN HELP IN THIS PROCESS. YOU CAN CHECK THE HEATERS WITH A OHM METER AND SEE IF ONE HAS GONE BAD. IF SO IT WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED.. NO MONEY ? TURN OFF ICE MAKER DO NOT USE WATER DISPENSER.. KEEP OUT OF THE FRIDGE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, YOU WILL NEED TO DEFROST IT LIKE ONCE A MONTH.. YA YA I KNOW THIS IS NO FUN, BUT GIVES YOU TIME TO FIND CHEAP PARTS.. THE BIG PROBLEM IS THE FAN AND THE HEATERS.. THE HEATERS ARE ON THE COILS INSIDE OF THE FREEZER

    It was the diffuser on the refrigerator side it was closed and would not open. I installed a new one and all works fine now.

Kenmore elite coldspot model 106.74219400 freezes in the fridge never gets above 5 or 10 degrees and it never shuts off.


there is a flap in the refrigerator side usually near or behind the light bulb the freezer side is thermostatically controlled with the compressor being controlled. On the refrigerator side the cold air comes from the freezer side. when this flap is open the refrigerator will cool continuously, Check the flap or the duct assembly
here is an illustration of the part

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.

I also have the same refrigerator model 106.56566400 and periodically when the power goes off in the house the refrigerator & freezer will stop cooling. Try pushing the on/off button located inside the refrigerator to the left of the digital temperature controls. Hold the button down, this turns the unit off, then press it again to turn it back on. This basically resets the refrigerator, and most of the time works to get the refrigerator cooling again. Try this first before calling a repair man.
