Question about Kenmore 50522 / 50524 Side by Side Refrigerator
We are doing a kitchen remodel and had to move the refrigerator. About 2 days after moving it, we discovered that the freezer had completely defrosted (lost all the food) and the refrigerator is barely cool. We moved it back onto a hard, level surface and turned up the thermostats but it didn't make any difference. Is there a circuit breaker in the unit that would have been tripped off when we moved it? We tilted it very slightly.
Andeb, couple of things you want to check. Is the fan in the freezer section running? Take the lower back panel off and see if the condensor fan is running as well as the compressor. As long as you tilted it only slightly I would think this is a fan or overload relay problem. Check the things I mentioned and post back...Catriver.

Our Kenmore regrigerator is 24 yrs. old one day the stuff in the freezer was thawing out and we just thought somehow the dorr may have been ajar - we threw out stuff - other part of frig. is working - then a week later we are away for one night and come home and all has shut down. Had to throw away all food in freezer, frig was warm too. Then a day later we hear it making ice again and it is cool in the frig too. Is it just something ready to go in it? We cannot rely on it to put more food in freezer just to have it go off again. Time to replace it or could it need a part replaced?
