Question about Kenmore 50522 / 50524 Side by Side Refrigerator

1 Answer

Kenmore side by side Refrigirator

The fridge is not cooling. I've had the repairman out twice now. The fridge stops cooling for a day, everthing melts. I call the repairman, by the time he get out to see me a couple of days later the fridge starts cooling and working. This is very frustrating because the repairman cannot fix what's working. When the fridge stops working the light still work and I can hearthe fan, the weird thing is that the water dispenser stops working. I know that the fridge is starting to work when the water dispenser starts working.

Sounds like you have a defrost problem. The timer could be playing up and taking too long to defrost, which causes the evaporator to ice up, hence no cold air to the fridge and the water line freezes up, hence no water dispensed. When the timer does eventually defrost the fridge then everything returns to normal. This could also be caused by a faulty defrost terminator or bad connection on the defrost element.

Where can I get a repair manual for a Hotpoint Fridge


Hi,

First of all, the model number you gave is not complete. But check you defrost system in the freezer, when the refer section stops cooling, your evaporator in the freezer is possibly full of ice and the fan won't move air through ice. When the refer sections fails to cool, check for a fan in the freezer. If it works, you have a defrost problem and is occurs every 3 - 5 days. The unit should defrost once or twice a day. Good Luck

I bet the bearings in your compressor are bad. The compressor will run and heat up but after getting hot it won't always restart. Most of the time it happens with Tecumseh compressors.

GE Profile - fridge not cooling


If freezer is icing up, you might have a defrost problem. Frost free models have a heating element that is controlled by a timer to automatically defrost ice, defrost timer turns on defrost heating element every 12 hours to melt ice in freezer and allow good air flow.
You can test defrost element with an ohm meter(located inside freezer coils-will have two wires going to a plug connection), if OK replace defrost timer (located in various places depending on make and model

Either the repair guy did not wire up the heater correctly or he replaced the wrong part, if the heater was good it was likley to be the defrost thermostat...I would call the repair guy back to check.

Not good news, it sounds like a compressor problem. Vacuum clean everthing you can safely get to in order to make it eaiser for the repair guy, (hopefully to save money). How old is the fridge?
