SOURCE: Freezer and Fridge side not cooling

Sounds like your Defrost heater is burned up. It is located in the back of the freezer compartment behind the lower cover. Look at the base of the condensor. Two screws hold the heater and two wire connectors. The heater is in a glass tube. Measure continuity from one end to the other, you should see a few ohms. if it is open, your heater is definitely burned. I got a good deal on a replacement heater on Ebay. I think it was $17 including shipping. The heater being bad will cause major frost buildup in the back of the freezer and stop the Ice maker from working and damage food. Be sure to thorougly dry the freezer compartment prior to putting it back in operation. If too much moisture is present, the new heater will evaporate the moisture into the Ice dispensoer motor and solenoid that swtiches from crushed to solid ice. Hope this helps. it has nothing to do with your problem, but please Check out my website www.playstationclinic.com

SOURCE: Freezer and frig is not working

I would start by pulling it out, removing the lower back panel, and see if the compressor is running. It is the black ball on the left side. If it is not running, check voltage at the two wires at the compressor. If there is voltage, try a new overload/relay kit. If there is no voltage, try a thermostat. If the compressor is running, check the evaporator behind the rear freezer panel to see if it is frozen solid, if it is, replace the defrost timer.

Check your door fit. The gasket should be tight all the way around, you can push the door back into shape.

SOURCE: freezer freezes, refrigerator is 55 degrees

All refrigerators also have a return air vent. You need to make sure this is not blocked by frost, the units own foam insulation or even by product placement. You should find it behind the crispers in the bulkhead between the freshfood and freezer compartments. You also want to verify the supply duct behind the damper is not blocked.

SOURCE: Warm refrigerator compartment

There is a fan that blows the cold air down from the freezer to the fridge compartment. It is usually called a freezer fan. Most of them are behind the plastic lining in the freezer. I just noticed that your fridge is a side by side. I have never wored on a side by side but I imagine there is fan in them as well.

Frig & freezer not cooling enough. Ice forming in back of bottom freezer.


You need to have the defrost cycle checked.( heater, limit stat, timer) If the frig can't defrost air can't move across your coils to cool properly. To temporarily get by until you can get a repairman, use a blow dryer to melt the ice build up. Once melted it will work normally for about 2 days till it freezes up again.

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.

My kenmore refrigerator side by side


All the cooling takes place in the freezer and is blown over to the frig side so the frig side will start to warm up soon. Possible cause is the starting device to the compressor is faulty, compressor motor locked up or cold control faulty and not closing.
