Question about Kenmore 50522 / 50524 Side by Side Refrigerator
Last week my side by side completely went warm...except the back of the freezer had a thick ice layer....lost everything!!!! I figured it was because I had the freezer totally packed. After emptying both sides, cleaning the coils and defrosting the ice from the freezer, it seemed like everything was going great. The ice maker started making ice again, and everything seemed to be getting cooler....but the controls are on the coldest setting and the freezer barely keeps ice cream frozen, and the milk in the fridge feels luke warm....help!!!!!
Madezmom, you have a defrost issue. If your model starts with 106 you more than likley have a bad defrost bi-metal, I will attach a picture of bad one. This sits on the evaporator in the freezer section behind the panel. You will have to remove the shelves and remove the back panel. Defrost the evaporator completely. The part number for the bi-metal is 2196155. See if yours is bulged like the one in the attached photo. If so, that's your problem..Catriver..post back.
