Question about Kenmore 44109 / 44102 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Kenmore side by side no longer freezing on freezer side and not as cold as it should be on both sides

Did check initial settings to see if it was just a simple setting issue. My wife said that she notices for the last month or two that she could hear it running constantly. She tried to turn it down a bit to see if it would stop constantly running but everything just got a little warmer (still cold beer but not icy cold) Than this past weekend a turn for the worst, fridge side was still somewhat cool not icy but the freezer side started to defrost. Things near the top first and than everything thing. We unpluged it yesterday and are planning on cleaning it from head to toe including the coils tonight. I will also look to see if the fan and compressior are both coming back on when I turn it back on. I saw on this site trouble shooting information regarding a defrost timer or ??? The fridge is a Kenmore side by side 18 or 21 feet: Part #sr1087, purchased from Sears like four years ago.

We had the same thing happened. We called Sears and scheduled a repair. Apparently there is a small electric heater that keeps the coils from freezing up and had to be replaced, about $80, I think. Not sure if that is your problem.

Check Engine Light On - Occasionally Stalls when shift to reverse.


If the check engine light is on, there has to be a code stored in the engine computer or body computer.
You may need to try another parts store, or a shop that has a scanner instead of a simple code reader.

My Kenmore side by side is fine, except for freezing everything in the crisper drawers.


The coldest place in your fridge is in the crisper drawers, manufactures know this and they even put heaters under the floor of your fridge to try to heat it up a bit in there, if you set your freezer temperture to low there will be less cold air current that flows into your fridge but it will flow in over a longer period of time, that air is about -22C so it will be blowing on your items in your crisper for a long time and it will probably freeze them, all very confusing and complicated but it may help to turn your controles for your freezer to a warmer setting, on the other hand if you only open your fridge a few times a day the cold air being denser will settle in the bottom of the fridge and freeze the crisper area, not much you can do about this, except eat more food... :-)

My sony cybershot dsc-w310 is not flashing


I'm sorry that the built in flash on the Camera is not working. If the Forced flash setting is already enabled and the flash is still not working, then the issue may be due to another camera setting. Even if the Forced flash setting is enabled, the flash will still not work in the following circumstances:
  • When shooting MPEG movies
  • When shooting in the Twilight or Handheld Twilight mode
  • If shooting with the Burst or Multi Burst mode
  • Shooting with Sweep Panorama
  • Shooting with the Fireworks or High Sensitivity mode.
  • If an external flash is connected.

Please make sure that the Camera is not set to any of these modes. You can check the Handbook to get the information to change the setting.. Click hear to download the Handbook if you don't have one handy.

If the issue persists, please Initialize the Camera. To initialize the Camera, please use the Initialize option under Main Settings option on the Camera. Also make sure that the battery is fully charged.
If the issue persists after performing all the above mentioned troubleshooting steps, service is required. Click hear to locate your nearest service center.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

Thanks for using Fixya...
