    My Kenmore Mod.596.79272992. The bottom freezer operates Ok, but the refrigerator will not cool any lower then 60 degrees. I cleaned everything under neath, the fan is operating ok.

    Could it need an upper thermostat?

Is the fan in the freezer running?? Is there frost on back panel of freezer??

Posted on Oct 03, 2007

  • Anonymous Oct 04, 2007

    There is a defrost timer that initates defrost for 30mins every 8hours of compressor run time.
    I believe it is on the bottom of the controls. It will have a hole in the console and you should see a pastic cam you can turn with a flat screwdriver. If you dont see a hole, but you do see 2 phillips screws than it may have a circuit board called an Adaptive defrost control. If you see the cam rotate click by click till unit shuts off (you will hear louder click and fans and comp will shut off. Now its in defrost. Wait 5 mins is the lower back of the freezer warming? Hear any melting of ice?? If not than you need a test meter to diagnose further.

    Please rate my solution as solved and ill keep the help coming!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello! I have an old model Kenmore 21 CF. The fresh food part of the refrigerator (the freezer seems fine) is not cold enough. Last night at 11:30pm I turned it from setting 5 to 7 (9 being the coldest)....

Check to see if the fan in the freezer is running, without it you get no cooling in refrigerator. If that's ok check for ice buildup on back freezer wall if so you have a defrost problem

Freezer is fine but the lower compartment is just cool not cold temp setting is turned to coldest

Firstly turn you temperature setting to the MIDDLE in between cold and coldest. This will allow cold air coming from your freezer to go into your fridge. if this does not seem to change your problem, check to see if the air vent at the back, top of the fridge is allowing air to flow from the freezer to the fridge. if there is no air flowing there may be a clogged ice drain or pan. usually if this is clogged you can unplug your fridge for 24 hours with the doors open. and it will manually melt the ice buid up.hope this helps

Thanks

Refrigerator does not get cold

In your freezer section, there should be a "control" for the freezer temp. I say "control" because the knob is attached to a flap that only controls airflow the the lower section. If the knob is turned to coldest it will block almost all of the air from getting into your fresh food section.

Kenmore freezer is not cooling

Listen for some type of noise from the back lower part of the freezer. This could indicate a problem with the compressor. It is not a fast fix problem. Get your frozen foods to a cold temperature. If the compressor is running and you are not getting the cooling your system could have lost its refrigerant charge. If the compressor is cool and not running check the temperature control. It may have failed. Unplug the power to the freezer and remove the temperature control. Jumper the two main wires that attach to the temperature control and insulate them with electrical tape. Plug the freezer back in and the compressor should start and cool. If this makes it run replace the thermostat.

My refigerator and freezer are not cooling enough

You could call for service. It is commonly possible that there was a loss of gas, or the thermostat is defective, or the compressor is weak. The refridgeration service man should be able to check for all of this.
