    Kenmore side by side model 5350 warm both sides. Was making a high pitched noise, then a faint click.

    The unit is not blowing cold air. We removed the front cover and cleaned the grille. It was filthy. Then plugged the unit back in. It made a click so we turned it back off. The unit is only 3.5 years old!

    Had the same problem with my Kenmore refrigerator (was not cooling anymore); came to this site - solution #2 by dwester was exactly what I needed. Compressor relay was broken; bought replacement part for $48 (had to go to specialty parts store). Wasn't exactly the same as the original, but was still relatively simple to replace. The freezer is now working perfectly. Thanks!

Unplug refrigerator, take off bottom cover in back (cardboard). On side of compressor (big round and black) is an electrical component called a compressor relay. Use a screwdriver to pry the entire block off the side of the compressor. Shake the block. If you hear it sound like a rattle, you need to replace it. Bring it to a refrigerator/appliance supply and get a new one. If yours is the original, the new part will look a little different, but just follow the directions. Trust me I just went through this and the part was $45, not $260 like sears was trying to get.

I'm nel21, I posted my problem Nov. 1 2008, and the solution was exactly what Solution #2 by dwester suggested. I spend only $45 and saved wasting over $250. Thank you for your help!

Freezer frosting up and refrigerator is warm

check the condenser fan in the lower back to make sure its running,if it quits the compressor will cycle on and off to cool itself instead of the fan doing this operation,and the unit will warm up inside,then the compressor will again restart and any condensation in the unit will refreeze and cause frost

Freezer stays cool but bottom stays warm.

I agree with your analysis, and recommend that you replace that fan between the two sections.

Refrigerator and freezer are not cool enough. Cleaned coils,has enough space between walls.etc.

Most likely problem is the internal fan. The fan draws air across the cooling coils and blows it into the freezer and refrigerator compartments. If it malfunctions, there's nothing to move the cold air and both sides of the unit get warm.

Upright freezer quit cooling, interior fan runs, compressor runs

The coils are most certainly there probably located under your unit. Clean them thoroughly. Look under and to the very top of that space.
