Replacing defrost timer,needs manuel


I check there is no free manual for Kenmore, I find. Better follow these steps to replace defrost timer.

Unplug the refrigerator. Locate the defrost timer. The timershould have four metal terminals coming from the bottom of the unit. It isusually situated behind the refrigerator, in the refrigerator's control panel,the freezer compartment toward the front of the cabinet or behind a metal kickplate on the bottom of the refrigerator. Older Kenmore models may have it builtinto the ice maker. Remove the defrost timer by takingoff the kick plate (if there is one) and removing any screws attaching it tothe refrigerator or freezer. Carefully pull the timer out from the wall of theunit so you can disconnect the wiring from the connectors. If removal isdifficult, try wiggling the connectors back and forth to help loosen them andpull on them firmly. Plug the wire connectors into thenew defrost timer and replace the timer in the refrigerator. Secure with screws, replace coverand plug in refrigerator.
Thanks and helpful?

My Kenmore side by side refrigerator does not cool what do i to fix the problem


See if the fan is running inside. If not replace the evaporator fan. Check the lint/dust buildup under the ref. Clean if necessary. Also see if you ca find the defrost timer on it. (should be in the refrigerator side.)

Try to turn the little dial on it with a screwdriver and see if it comes out of the defrost cycle. if it does, it is a bad timer.

Is the coil freezing up in the freezer compartment? This could be caused by a bad timer or the defrost heater/terminator is bad..This will also cause the refigerator side not to cool.

Also, check and make sure the light turns off in the fridge side when the door is closed.Check by depressing the switch located somewhere close to where the door touches it.

if the compressor is running and not freezing, you may have a refrigerant leak. If not, then if the defrost timer is working, the door switch is good and fan runs, you may have a bad compressor.

Freezer is cold refrigerator is not


This is usually caused by a malfunctioning defrost timer switch or the defrost timer thermostat. Both switches can be replaced by homeowner if you're handy with tools. The schemactic of the refrigerator should show where these parts are.

Kenmore 596.72913200 Refrigerator is Warm, but Freezer is Cold


There should be a push in switch on the door frame that you can push to see if the evaporator fan is functioning. You will be able to hear it when you push in on the switch.

If your problem is defrost related you will see frost buildup on the back wall of the freezer . If it is defrost related it will be ether the timer, heater, or defrost thermostat that is your problem. If it is the timer, locate where the timer is. Sometimes located in the area of the temperature controls with a hole through which you can turn a clutch head screw clockwise very SLOWLY until you hear one audible click. This will start the defrost. if after 30 minutes it defrosts but does not start cooling again turn the screw just a little further and you will hear another click. The compressor should start. If this is you conditions the timer needs to be replaced. If it fails to defrost and restarts to cooling mode after 18-22 minutes the problem is in the defrost heater circuit.
