Re: Kenmore Top Freezer formed ice, main refrigerator area is not cooling Kenmore Top Freezer (Main refrigerator area) is not cooling; This trouble shooting has happened for the past year. Main refrigerator area was either too warm or too cold and now, is not cooling period. A ***** of ice has formed in rear of the ice box. I removed ice maker and rear panel. Behind the panel was the unit/part that houses the refrigerant inside the aluminum piping and louvers. Ice was caked on throughout it.
Not easy to diagnose. the basic fault is that the defrost system has packed up.check that there is continuity thro the defrost heater. there may also be a thermal fuse in series with the heater so check that also.if those ok, ...
Kenmore 18.3 cu. ft. Top Freezer Refrigerator w/Through-the-Door Water Dispenser
I have a 4 year old Kenmore top freezer refrigerator. the defrost function is malfunctioning. the freezer frosts up, clogs the air vents, the fan runs nonstop, and everything melts. I've turned off the refrigerator and melted the ice and cleared the vents, but of course the problem just reoccurs, more quickly each time. i'm calling Sears for a repair ticket, but I am curious what the problem might be, and if it would be covered under their 5 year warranty.
Should be covered alright. Sounds like the defrost therostat is open. Is you defrost heater coming on. It doesn't seam like it is. As you frig runs it's cycle it will turn off the compressor every hour or so and the timer will turn on the heater in y ...
Kenmore Elite 22.4 cu. ft. Bottom Freezer Refrigerator with Adjusta Cube Ice Maker
Top Mount Kenmore Refrigerator Model # 363.9731785
Ice Maker stopped working.
I've verified that water is getting to the refrigerator (copper) and that the clear plastic water line to the icemaker is not clogged or iced shut.
My guess is that the problem is in/with the blue plastic part between the copper and the plastic (with electric leads and a ground wire attached).
Is this likely? Is it easily replaceable?
HI. First, you will need to rule out any standard issues that will cause this. Check the internal, and external feed lines for any obstructions. Make sure that the internal lines are not frozen, or kinked. If the lines check out ok, move on to the wa ...
Refrigerator I have a BPL Frost Free double door refrigerator with the freezer at the top. Now, I see something like snow piling up at the bottom of the freezer near the door and icicles hanging from the top. Then the refrigerator stops. We tried pouring warm water in to the vent and it restarted. It was OK for a week now again ice accumulation is beginning near the door/I think it is ice accumulation in the drain perhaps, but why does ice accumulate? Do I need to pay for this consultation? Bec

Admiral model LFT2112ARW freezer on-top refrigerator: The refrig compartment stays just below room temp. The freezer accumulates ice. The unit is in the garage, in a non-air-conditioned space. Clearly not enough air is getting from the freezer into the refrigerator compartment, but when I clear the ice, it still has the same problem. The unit runs all the time trying to get cold. Could this be a problem with the unit never going into defrost mode? One guy told me to leave the freezer door open,
Check the defrost heater, timer and t-stat. You should probably let it thaw out completely for at least a full two days to thaw out all the ice. Then check the parts. Look at the heater to make sure it's not broken or burned out. When you decide whic ...
I have the Sub Zero 550 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator. Just recently, the Freezer section started getting warmer and the ice maker stopped working...all at roughly the same time. It had been set to "5" regularly.
I turned the freezer to 0, vaccuumed out the coils/air intake up top, made sure the fan at the top was running (which it is), set the freezer temp back to 5 and am waiting to see what happens. The freezer only gets cold enough to freeze ice when I set it to 10 now. And the ice make

Kenmore 64254 / 64252 / 64259 Top Freezer Refrigerator
I have a new Frigidaire Model FRT21IL6JM 21 CF top freezer refrigerator. When the compressor turns on - the fan covering in the freezer compartment rattles (vibrates) loud enough to be irritating. When I put my hand on it the rattle stops. I have place a small wooden spacer between the ice cube tray & the outside of the wire shelf to make the ice tray make contact with the fan housing to stop the rattle. Can I drive a self tapping screw through the fan housing to stop the rattle? How can I
I have a Kenmore Elite model 106.55606400 (side-by-side). Recently (last 2 months or so), the cooler stops working while the freezer works (and makes ice, etc.). If I defrost the unit, then both sides work for about a couple of days, then the cooler side stops working. I tried various temperature settings but that doesn't help. I see ice build up in the rear of the freezer but I don't see any ice forming by the vents connecting the two sides (top or middle/bottom). This is a 2004 model and the f
Kenmore 5553 / 655532 / 55534 / 55539 Side by Side Refrigerator
I've got a six year old Kenmore side by side 106.56534400 refrigerator. Everything in the freezer melted. Refrigerator compartment is warm. Freezer fan and condenser fan underneath are both running. Condenser coils are fairly clean, brushed and vacuumed. Turned off refrigerator overnight. Restarted. Cooled and made ice for about 6 hours, before starting to melt and get warm again. Evaporator coils are clear with no ice or frost buildup. What seems to be the problem?
My JennAir side by side is cold at the top of the freezer, like a refrigerator should be; freezing at the bottom of the freezer; and not at all cold throughout the refrigerator. All the ice in the icemaker melted, dripped down to the bottom of the freezer and refroze - forming an amazing clear ice sculpture.

The freezer ice is probably building up because of a 'defrost cycle' issue. I have looked up the 'if' code for your machine. There is no mention of that fault. It is an LG right? Made for Kenmore. I have a service manual that is close, but not that s ...

Kenmore 63074 Top Freezer Refrigerator
Kenmore refrigerator # 106.57032602. Ice maker uses the Emitter - receiver system to control ice level. The emitter sends a beam thru cutouts in the ice bin, and when receiver cannot see the beam, stops ice production. Stopped making ice, and red light on freezer liner just blinks now. Unit is 1+ years old, and out of warranty. How can I determine which part is defective, the emitter or the receiver PC board? Is there a way to check that the emitter is putting out the ice level beam? Thanks for
No Ice... Ok I have a Kenmore side by side 596.52679200.. It just stopped making Ice. I took the Icemaker off to look it over and I saw that the inside coating was peeling off. got a new I/M and put it in. I have checked the filler tube (Clear) no ice stuck inside. I do get water out of the door, but I have noticed that the water line from the back of the Fridg. to the top of the filler tube does not have water all the way to the top. It is 2" short of the top not sure if I have a bad value? Can

My Kenmore Freezer Model # 596.722 has problem with bottom freezer it is icing up in the back. The fridge top half isn't as cool as it should be. My husband has used a hair dryer to de-ice it, removed the inside back panel and had to de-ice the coils. This helped and our refrigerator was cool and freezer worked. However only for 2 weeks. Help .
I have a Kenmore side by side model # 106.53609202 and its about 8 years old. About a month ago it stopped making ice. I've already replaced the water valve behind the fridge and waited 24 hours and still no ice. The water dispensor in the freezer door works fine. I haven't heard the ice maker 'call' for water either. The drain hole in back of the freezer was blocked with ice but I cleared it with hot water. The short water tube that feeds the ice tray is not plugged up. I think that's about it.
OK, remove the cover on the face of the ice maker and let me know if the model look like this picture: If it looks like this mod ...
