Question about Refrigerators
How to Fix a Box Fan. Box fans work by having a set of fan blades attached on the shaft of a small motor. The motors and bearings on box fans have a tendency to go bad. Here is how to fix a box fan.
Step 1 Take apart the fan by removing the screws on the front panel of your fan and lifting the blades off the hub.
Step 2 Test the switch on your box fan by setting your volt-ohm meter on RX1 and removing the common switch lead from its terminal. Insert one of the probes into the terminal. Remove the other switch leads and insert the second probe into the terminals. Test each terminal one at a time. All readings should be drawing zero ohms. If they aren't, you will have to either replace the terminals, or if you can't replace them, you will have to replace the fan.
Step 3 Service the motor on your fan by lubricating the motor using SAE 20 non-detergent oil. Apply one or two drops to each oil port. Test the motor to see if it is working.
Step 4 Spray the shaft near the motor housing with a lightweight spray lubricant, if your motor is running slowly. Lubrication usually helps.
Step 5 Replace the motor on your fan if your efforts to clean the motor do not work. You can replace the motor by unscrewing the motor parts, taking the old motor to your local electrical store, purchasing a new motor of the exact same model and installing the new motor.
Step 6 Put your box fan back together the same way you took it apart.

You said, overloaded freezer may have caused fan to go out? Is this possible? Cleaned dust from compressor and shut off to let it cool down but it is still not working
Yes It's possible. If the freezer is so packed full where the packages cover the air vents in the rear of the freezer.
The freezer and the fridge share the cold air and this is the first think we look for if the fridge is warm and the freezer cold, And the fan works nonstop rather than cycling off and on!
What is the model number and year of your fridge!
Waiting your response.

Modern refrigerators have an 85% run time

Hi: I've dealt with Kenmore for 30 years. Unfortunately the new model numbers don't reveal the age. I must assume it's a newer model. I'm not disputing what you said about it running all the time, but please read on. Oddly enough the new energy efficient referigators run 70 to 80% of the time. They use a smaller compressor without the big amperage start-up. The best I can describe them is that they freewheel alot. The 106......of your model number means it was built by Whirlpool. A very quite and energy efficent refrigerator. If your power bill is high get a meter from your power company, most have them. Just to double check the power consumption. Good luck Jeff

hello. i can assist you.
If the ice maker is producing ice poorly--making small cubes or too few cubes--you probably have a clogged water line, a defective water-inlet valve, or a defective ice maker mold thermostat that isn't cycling properly. Check these:
