Question about Kenmore 53642 / 53644 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Freezer only cool, fridge not cold as well

We noticed a couple days ago that the hamburger in the freezer is thawed, but not completely warm. We hear the freezer running, but not as loud as it was. The fridge is barely cool. The refrigerator is a Kenmore 253.52642300 and is four years old.

    My Fridge is a TFX22CRBGWW by GE. Will not get cold and the freezer side will not freeze solid. The fan in the back is working but it is just not cold. only Cool. Is it worth repairing or just replace becuase the unit was built in 1999?

It sounds like the relay on the back of the unit may have gone bad.or the compressor has a leak in the line...call a tech out and have it checked...it may be cheaper to get a new fridge

Freezer works fridge does not


Needs to be completely thawed for 2 days. Or wlse the circulator fan under the freezer panel inside freezer is not working. Take the plastic bottom of freezer out and let thaw. Then plug in fridge and check if the fan is running inside there. Do not poke around inside there or fridge will be punctured and ruined.

Remove the bottom front panel of the fridge and locate the defrost timer. This is a small circular motor with a screw slot in the center. Turn the slot CLOCKWISE ONLY and listen for a click. As soon as you hear the click stop, wait about five minutes and feel the walls of the freezer they should now be cold.If this happens again the timer will need to be replaced. Thank you, Dana

Clicking, buzzing, compressor too hot, thawed out


Sounds like the compressor is in thermal overload. Let it cool down completely and meter the starting amperage on start to run. The compressor could be seized or it's windings could be shorted to ground (checking the resistance between the windings terminals on the compressor while unplugged will determine this.).

Cooling Problem with Amana Fridge/Freezer model ARS2663AC


Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items.

Fridge not cool


the coil is frosted over and no air is being pushed to the fridge it may clear up after a few defrost cycles or remove the food from the freezer and allow it to thaw completely (12hrs) the ice behind the back wall takes a long time to thoroughly melt or you will have soild ice instead of frost and then it will never thaw soild ice.
