Question about Kenmore 73502 / 73504 / 73509 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator
Freezer is steady at zero and has not changed but the fridge will not get cold. I've vacumed out the coils as well as checked the duct at the back all seems fine but still won't get cold.
It sounds like cold air from the freezer isn't making it to the fridge compartment. This can be cause by a several things. The damper that lets air into the fresh food side is stuck in "closed" position, the temp sensor (t-stat) isn't working properly, the evaporator fan (in the freezer comp above the coils) isn't working to blow air up to the fresh food section. In some situations, the defrost cycle for the freezer section isn't working and the coils have frozen into a block of ice and air can't flow over them properly so you get not cold air to the fresh food section but the freezer still stays cold due to the block of ice.

Try this: Ice maker has rake that scoops ice out of mold and into bin. Bag from hot dog buns gets caught in rake, causing overload breaker to trip, same breaker that controls evaporator fan that blows cold air into fridge from freezer. Remove bag, breaker resets, fan starts. GE fridge.
