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

1 Answer

Freezer works but cooler isn't cold

We have a side by side Kenmore Elite Coldspot about 7 years old (came with the house we bought). The cooler doesn't seem to get colder than 60 degrees but the freezer works fine. We cleaned out the "vents" underneath but that didn't seem to work.

    My situation is even worse. The freezer is fine, the icemaker is working fine (no ice burning or extra moisture in freezer), but the refrigirator is warm, because an opening from the freezer gets coverde by ice (i think from cooler side, not from freezer side). if i turn everything off and de-ice, everything works fine for few days until the opening between the two compartments gets covered with ice. it looks like both doors get good fit without any air leaks. my basic analysis lead me to one of the following potential problems:



    1. air leak someplace

    2. failed temperature sensor in cooler compartment, the one next to fan

    3. failed electronic panel.



    Please let me know what you think might be the problem.

    Thanks in advance

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

Kenmore Coldspot 106.9552610 not cold enough


Inside the fresh food compartment look for an opening that will allow you to turn the defrost timer clockwise slowly. When you hear it click the refrigerator should go into defrost. If the timer is bad it will need replaced. Let me know. Below is a photo of timer.

I have a Kenmore coldspot side by side- not cooling properly


Setting it to 5 is what the manufacturer recommends. If you set it to 1 and the frig is still not cold, then you probably have a faulty cold control (thermostat)
