Question about Kenmore 73502 / 73504 / 73509 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

1 Answer

Kenmore model 59675502400

We have a Kenmore bottom mount refrigerator. The freezer is cold but not the refrigerator. The compressor was check and fan motor replaced but it still doesn't work. We did the diagnostic test to make sure the damper was open and that was ok. We think the problem is that what ever controls the fan motor isn't turning the fan motor on. Can you tell us what to check?

    I replaced the freezer fan motor, still not working.
    What can I check next?

If the evaporator is clogged with ice, then you have a defrost problem.
check the defrost heater and the bi-metal .

to answer your question what controls the fan then it is the module that controls the fan.

you said you have diagnostic to test the damper then there should be a procedure also to test the evaporator fan motor.

why don't you try it..

My kenmore fridge with bottom freezer, model#596.785.83801. Both fridge and freezer won't stay cold. Fan on and lights are on. Help!!


Check to see if the compressor in back is running. It could need a new compressor start device. If it is running it could need a new compressor. The compressor cooling fan could be stalled and the compressor is overheating.

If the fans continue to run when the compressor kicks off the thermostat is functioning normal.

The problem could either be the compressor itself or more likely the start device (relay) that controls the compressor, it is an easy component to replace and mounts directly to the compressor.

The part number for the relay is 989662

If the relay is good and compressor is bad, you would be looking at about $500.00 to repair

Kenmore Trio: the refridgerator is not getting cool


In the Freezer or Fridge compartment, there is the Evaporator Fan (& Motor) If the freezer is cold, the Evaporator fan motor most likely went bad. Check to see that when the compressor is running, so should be the fan motor. If not, you have to remove it & replace it. It is not an expensive repair unless you call for service on it. Make sure that you unplug the fridge when you replace the fan motor.

Freezer is fine. Fridgerator portion does not cool .


The most likely cause is a bad evaperator fan motor. It is mounted in the freezer section. It blows the air up to the ref section. Open the freezer door and listen to see if you hear any fan noise.

Kenmore Refrigerator Model #795.75004401 Doesn't get cold


Hi. Make sure all your fans are working. When checking fans, open the door and push the light button in. Some models the fan stops or dampers close when the doors are opened. Put your hand in front of the vent and see if you feel air. Do the same in the refrigerator and freezer. If you feel air from both, check and see of the compressor is running. There is a fan next to the compressor and should be running when the compressor is running. You have a motherboard behind a cover on the back of your refrigerator that controls all of these functions. It could be defective. Motherboard failure is common as well as compressor and evaporator motor failure. Fan Motor failure is common for refrigerators in storage for a long period of time. The motors are weak and can't start. This goes for all new refrigerators. I sell refrigerator items on Ebay as username, themackshack. Good Luck, Mack

Not hot check vents in refrig. make sure no blockage, freezer control should be in the middle setting, you can try turning that to Warmer freezer allowing MORE air to refrigertor side.
