If you do not feel any air coming out there is probably something wrong with the circulating fan or fan blade broken,this can usually be checked by closing the doors or depressing the light buttons on both doors,you should hear the fan or feel flow,when you defrosted did you feel anything upon restarting?if so it could be a defrost problem

Why water is not coming out of the line to the freg

First check to make sure the water valve from th water supply is on (usually under your sink), Second, hold the water despenser switch ON. You should hear a "Hum" sound, that's the Electric water valve in the "open" position. The air will have to be purged through the water line, Filter, And the water collection tank inside the frig. The water tank keeps about agallon of water Cold for the water despenser, and will supply cold water to the ice maker, so the ice maker can freeze the cold water much faster for your ice. When holding the Water despenser, and you do NOT hear the hum sound, there is NOT power to the water selenoid. Check the connections to be ure they are tight and secure. A volt meter can also be used to check the voltage. WARNING the voltage is around 120 volts A.C., Do NOT TOUCH with bare hands!

My fridge and freezer smell and I do not know where it is coming from. Have cleaned numerous times with different things including bleach and vinegar. What could be the cause?

  • This is a different smell than I am used to hearing about....You say you have cleaned the fridge and freezer several times. I do not know what was used to clean it with but I would do this.....use bleach on the plastic in the fridge. Try to be sure to get the crisper drawers as well with bleach. It may be strong to start with but the smell of bleach dissipates very quickly. When you get done there is a tray under the fridge that collects water when it goes on defrost cycle(assuming its a self defrosting unit?) I would clean out the tray underneath and if you can get under the fridge by moving it try moping the floor under it with bleach.Ammonia can be used instead of bleach but do not mix them together.
  • When you are all done be sure to have a fresh box of baking soda for the fridge.Open the box and set it in the back on the top shelf, wait 24 to 36 hours and write ma back and lat me know where we stand.
  • I hope this is helpful and please rate me for my answer if you can....thank you and speak with you soon!

Freezer not freezing

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

Ice dispensor only dispensing crushed ice - not cubed

Make sure that your ice tray is properly instaled. There is a rod that must go into a hole. When you select ice cubes rather than crushed ice a solenoid raises which moves that rod. It then opens a flap so the cubes can bypass the crusher. Either your rod is not in the hole correctly or the solenoid has gone bad. The rod that I am speaking of runs along the underside of the ice tray. It has a spring on the rear end that holds the bypass flpa closed.

Sounds like a defrost problem. Check to see if there is any frost buildup in the back wall of the freezer. If so, it is not defrosting as it should.
  • possible causes:
  1. bad defrost timer
  2. bad defrost heater (in freezer)
  3. bad thermo switch in freezer
If you don’t know what these are then unplug the machine and let the ice melt in the freezer overnight with the door open. Then try it the next day, if is cooling fine then you need to have a service person replace one of the above items. If it still has a problem then it might be the compressor and you should probably replace the machine.

Kenmore 55533400 cold air not comming over to frige side,

cleve...Without removing panels from inside the box, you will have trouble knowing if there is ice or not. Do you hear fans and feel air moving from the various vents? Many boxes do have fan shut offs so you'll have to find the door light switch to be sure. Fans rarely go out. If the fans are working, I'd consider fully defrosting by leaving the unit open and unplugged for a day or two.

If there is air movement, is the compressor coming on (you've given very little info)? Have you cleaned the condenser coils under/in back of the box?
