Defroster runs too long - Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator


What is the model number of the unit? ... Kenmore Side by Side Refrigerator

I have side by side refrigerator. It does not want to cool properly. The food will stay frozen as long as it is in the bottom of the freezer. The refrigerator stays semi cool. The fans are running the compressor seems to be running. I did notice that it doesn't look like it is defrosting like it suppose to. The freezer was over packed at one time and I think that had something to do with it. How do I reset the mechanism that will let this defrost again and get it back on it timer

Kenmore side-by-side: The vent got blocked & made the refrigerator stop working because the fan got frozen over by the air not being able to circulate, we defrosted it all & the fan runs, but every few weeks the fridge stops staying cold, as if it defrosts but doesn't start back up again, so we have to turn it off overnight & start it up again in the morning & it works for another few weeks. We don't put anything close to the vents anymore, but it still happens. The freezer seems to overfreeze a

I have a Kenmore Side by side refrigerator freezer. The freezer is running too cold, we defrosted it and cleaned out the drain but within 3 days the drain was iced up again and everything way too frozen. We have it set on the lowest setting. When I call Kenmore, I am told no one in the United States can talk to me and I have to have someone come out and look at it and it will cost $75.00. Can anyone help.

I have a maytag side by side refrigerator which seems to have the common problem of a warm fridge area while the freezer stays cold (but not cold enough for ice cream). It has been unplugged for several months now. I see that several people with the same problem solved it by purchasing an adaptive defrost control board. If I buy this, could I still probably run into problems since it has set idle for so long? One repairman told me that this would be the case. Thank you, P. B. Shelbourne


Hi, when you plug this refridgerator back in leave it for a few days and if you have the same problem it's going to be the defrost system. I will also assume you have the ability to repair this yourself. This is going to be one of three problems with ... Maytag MSD2756GES Side by Side Refrigerator

My freezer is running fine but the refrigerator is warm. There is frost on the freezer side not on the interior but I can see it through the vent. There is frost build up in the lower side of the refrigerator behind a blue flap. Your web site recommended replacing the adaptive defrost control but another web site said it could also be the defrost thermostat, defrost heater and one other defrost part. I'm not sure what I should buy. They talk about testing wires but I don't understand how to do


HI. There are two causes here, in this situation. The most common will be a faulty defrost timer, or adaptive defrost control board. The defrost mechanism will vary form unit to unit. Most newer units will be equipped with an defrost control board. T ... Refrigerators

The Defrost is working, the evaporator fan is running, the evaporator coils are not iced up, and the damper that controls the air flow on the refrigerator side is fully open. Any Thoughts?


It sounds as though you have a refigeration problem if there is no cold on the coil, however you hav sad that you have changed the sensor which would bring in the fan when cold enough.
