Question about Kenmore 53092 / 53094 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Freezer and refrigerator are not cold enough.

I have a 2001 Kenmore side by side refrigerator (52512100) The center divider (front face behind the doors) is hot to the touch! It is hot from top to bottom. I can't imagine that this is not part of my problem. The ice maker works good. We have the freezer and refrigerator on the coldest setting and the ice cream is soft. Help.

Freezer is not cold enough to make ice and all the contents are dethawing. Fridge is also not cold enough to keep things as cool as they should be


Seems like a defrost problem. Pull back panel and check frost pattern, if completely frosted,Turn the defrost timer (behind the kick panel in front, or mounted on the back panel) till the fridge goes into defrost. If defrost heater now gets red, replace the defrost timer, if not remove the defrost thermostat clipped to the evaporator coil, and check for continuity while still cold.

A bar in the middle, when two doors are opened, is really hot. and cold storage is not working vey well. please help.


IIRC your refrigerator has an electronic control in the front face of the freezer door. Both sides have 3 buttons in a vertical column. On the left side (standing facing the closed door) the center button is labeled "freeze". Each time you push it the number of horizontal green bars changes. The bars increase in count to the top/maximum, then start over at the bottom with a single bar. This is your freezer setting indicator (the fridge works the same way). The more bars the colder the setting is. Note that if you set the freezer bars too high (IE set the freezer too cold) then the "waterway" heater will come on and stay on to prevent the waterway inside the door itself from freezing up. This heater is wired such that when it comes on so does the "home-bar" (which touches both of the doors when closed) heater, which will also stay on.

This is usually normal for these units it can depen on how long the unit is running in a cooling mode.
the other thing to check is the condensor fan in the bottom back side of the fridge and make sure it is running if it is not the it needs to be replaced this will also cause alot of heat on the fromt of the unit

Wall that divides the freezer and fridge section on our side by side is hot.


In the wall between the doors is a heater to prevent it from sweating. It's actually just behind the front of the divider.

GE Monogram ZISB36DYB Freezer Not Cold Enough; Burning Center


Pull the refrig out , and remove the panel at the bottom , on the back . Behind this panel , will be the compressor and condenser " roll " coil , and the condenser fan motor . From your description of the problem , the fan motor in not operating , or the coils are extremely clogged with dust . If the fan motor is not operating , the most likely cause , is the main control board . You can try replacing the motor first , but , the board is most likely the cause . This is the electronic board , behind the 8 " X 10 " panel , behind the refrig also . If you remove the panel , and look at the board closely , You may see a burned part ( resistor ) . However , replacing the burnt part , will not solve the problem . The complete board will need to be replaced .

The divider between the freezer and refrig is very hot to touch.


Normal for that strip to be warm since the cooling system is routed right behind it for heat transfer and to eliminate condensation. Will be warmer with increase in room temp, but if it is a significant change you should inspect/clean the coils behind the panel in the rear of the unit.

Does the single temperature control guage affect both,freezer and


check in the freezer section for a knob to control the freezer. Turn this knob back to center and return refrigerator setting to 5. What is happening is the freezer control is just a baffle that divides the air flow into the fresh food and freezer section. If the freezer knob is turn to 1 or cold it is sending all the cold air into the refrigerator, then when you turn down the actual cold control, the system isn't allowed to run long enough to allow the freezer to stay frozen.
