Question about Kenmore Refrigerators
A couple things to check here. First see if there is ice in the tray. If so chances are the ice maker will need to be replaced however these are very reliable ice makers. If no ice in the tray pull up on the ejector blade (don't worry you won't break it) turn clockwise to start the ice maker thru a cycle. The ejector blade is the long white bar with fingers on it that run the length of the tray. Once it completes a cycle it should fill with water. If no water then either the fill tube is frozen over and will need to be defrosted or the water valve is bad.

there is a tab in the bottom of the light socket that can get bent so that it wont touch the base of the new bulb. unplug your refrig and use a small screw driver and bend the tab back out a little bit so that it will contact the new bulb...

It's not the relay, Your problem is either the evaporator motor or the condensor motor. Does it sound like a bird chirping or a high pitch grinding noise? If so move your refer out and get in back of it then pull your back panel at the bottom of the refer. and check and see if your fan is running. Whenever the condensor fan motor slows down or stops it causes the compressor to overheat causing it to come on and go off whenever the compressor gets too hot. If it is the evap. motor open the freezer door and check and see if you have a frost build up on the back panel. If so your evap. motor is bad and you will need to change it. Whenever your evap. motor slows or stops it causes your evaporator to ice up and freeze causing your refer to run all the time because the air flow is restricted. I hope this helps.

It sounds like you have a plugged defrost
drain line. This is where the water goes to in the bottom of your
freezer when it goes through the defrost (removal of ice from the
freezer coil) cycle. It sounds like that hole is plugged and now the
water/ice has now frozen in the vent that lets air circulate down into
your refrigerator compartment. What I usually do in this case is to
unplug the refrigerator, empty out the freezer compartment. Usually I
also end up either pulling off the back panel or the bottom panel (in
the freezer compartment) Looking for that defrost drain hole and
actually I use a hair dryer. I can sometimes do this also by pouring
small amounts of HOT tap water onto it and then sopping/absorbing it
away with a sponge or dishcloth. I repeat this until I get the water to
go down the drain tube. Do this and all will be back to normal..
