Remove back cover on evaporator inside frezeer if is full of ice all over then you have a defrost problem and you might have a faulty defrost timer or defrost thermostat repl both so you wont go wrong if the coils are clean and not frost is on coils then check compressor to see if its running just by touching you can find out if it si not running then you have a faulty relay or overload repl and compressor should start.if there is only partial frost then you have a leak or restriction depending when you bought it most refrigerators have a maufactures warranty on compressor for about 5 years call for service on the number on the sticker inside refirgerator

My son left fridge door open, from 1-2 hours. it doesn't seem to be cooling now. Is there a problem or does it take a while for condensor to come back on?


What has happened is that the evaporator (the cooling coils inside the freezer) have frosted up due to all the moist air which entered the refrig with the door open. This frost has blocked the normal flow of air within the refrigerator/ freezer. Turn unit off, unload freezer, and leave freezer door open for several hours to allow built up frost to melt. Better yet, remove the panel at the back of the freezer and melt the frost off with a hair blower.

I have a Kenmore fridge model 106.72852100 the fridge part does not work but the freezer works what should I do?


Check to see if your inside fan is blowing air. Your fresh food section is cooled by the freezer. If the fan is running, I think you will find that you have a defrost problem. You can tell by looking at the inside back panel of your freezer. If it has frost or ice built up, you have a defrost problem. Your freezer should be between -10 and 0 degrees and if you have the ice on the inside back panel of the freezer. you will find the your freezer is really running warm and not ok like was thought. If so, remove the back panel and defrost with blow dryer. you can check your heaters once defrosted. they will be behind that panel. You can put the panel back on and the fridge will work ok for 3 or 4 days. This will give you time to get the part or time for someone to come out and fix without loosing any food.

Kenmore side-by-side freezer is fine but fridge is not


Yes, Airflow is what cools the frig. Check for frost buildup on the coils indicating a problem in the defrost components r a fan not running fast enough. Eric

Side by side fridge not cooling, not making ice


if it seems like the evaporator is getting cold then your sealed system should appear to be ok. you need the evap fan to transfer cold air into fresh food section. if not turning u need to replace fan motor. make sure your not getting to much frost build up on the evap.

I have a Kenmore Cold Spot fridge, freezer on top. Fridge is warm, and freezer keeps freezing up on sides and bottom. I cleaned it all out, defrosted it, and it still freezes up and fridge still won't get...


Is this a self defrost model? Frost inside the freezer could be an air leak around the door gasket. Remove the back panel in the freezer and completely defrost the coils. Is the fan running in the freezer. That will make the frig not be cool. With the door closed peek in the gasket to make sure the light is shutting off, this will warm a frig also.

Fridge is not cold enough, freezer is working fine, but has frost


Just had the same problem with my side-by-side.

In my case, the solution was to empty the freezer side, to access a back panel INSIDE the freezer covering the fan and cooling coils. Two screws held the back panel cover on, and when I removed the panel cover I found the cooling coils to be totally iced up, preventing the flow of cold air into the fridge side. I left the freezer open for a few hours until all the ice was melted, before replacing the inside panel. (I used a blow dryer to help speed up the ice melting).

Everything's working fine now for me - good luck with yours!

Kenmore freezer and fridge is not cold - not frost build up - compress anf fans are all running


You need a qualified technician for this problem.
- Your unit may have leaking try to check for oil traces.
- The system maybe restricted, system reprocess is needed for this unit.
- If the unit is no frost try to check if there is an air circulation inside the unit. If no air is present then check your fan motor inside.

My kenmore refrigerator side by side


Sounds like it has a defrost problem.  Check for thick frost buildup on the back bottom panel in the freezer first and let me know what you find so I can steer you in the right direction.  Also, give me the entire model # from the sticker inside fridge.
