Hi i have a kenmore model # 106.55526400 side by side refrigerator with major temperature problems.

I first checked both fans and the are both running properly , then I unplugged it and let it sit over night to make sure the coils were not frozen. When I plugged back in still not cool or freezing! I now have taken

I have a GE Monogram ZDB24A under-counter drink refrigerator. Recently, it started freezing all the drinks we keep in it. Even on lowest setting (1), the compressor will continue running and cool the temperature down to 25 degrees or colder. If I turn the temperature knob toward "off" it will click off the compressor. Resetting the dial to "1" makes the refrigerator behave normally, increasing the temperature up above 40 degrees or so before it clicks back on. I'm assuming this is a bad therm


Hi Rich\015\012\015\012Sounds like it needs a new thermostat. \015\012If you are competent with electrics its a fairly easy repair, only 2 wires and the ground. \015\012See your local fridge wholesaler and ask for a thermostat ... GE ZDB24A Wine Cooler

The refrigerator was running too cold and freezing everything on the top shelf so I moved the dial from the coldest setting all the way to the right, to the least cold on the left. Now the refrigerator is not keeping anything cold even though the lights are still on and the freezer is fine. I moved the dial all the way back to the coldest setting but it still isnt cold.

The left side of my refrigerator is getting too cold and freezing my vegetables, even in the drawer, and now the water dispenser does not work. It appears that the line is frozen. It was slow this morning, then after running a bit, it got better, but with no use for a few hours it is again not working. I changed the water filter (5 months old) and lowered the refrigerator temp to 2. I also put on the humidity control and it just seems to get worse. There is plastic tubing toward the back (i

The freezer won't get cold enough to freeze or keep items frozen. I have removed the back panel, and there is no frost on the coils. The drain is clear, and water will run down to the collector pan. The refrigerator section seems to be working correctly.

Our refrigerator keeps shutting off, about once per day but at different intervals it seems. If we don't notice, it will defrost, melting freezer contents into a puddle on the floor. If we do notice, we can hit it (Fonzi-syle) near the top and the fan will kick on and it will freeze back up. When running, it works great and is very cold. We've had a repair guy come fix, but over a hundred bucks and a new defrost controller later... still does the same thing. Can't buy groceries since we have


If this model has a mechanical cold control (one with a knob) then I suspect it is shutting off at temp but not coming back on when it should . Try tapping the control with the handle of a butter knife gently while off . If it immediately starts then ... Whirlpool ED2FHSS Side by Side Refrigerator

I have a Frigidaire Model FRS26ZNH Side by Side. Refrigerator side not cooling (no air flow from top). Freezer side fine, however back panel and coils are freezing up. If I turn off the freezer side and remove back panel and use a fan to thaw out the coils in back of freezer, unit will run fine for a few days until it freezes up again. Fan motor was running constant, however when I went to unfreeze the coils again today, the fan motor was not running at all. Any suggestions!!

Hi Side by side refrigerator not cooling down. Freezer seems to be not freezing. refrigerator compressor is running. Freezer damper wide open on a setting, refrigerator turned up to 10, running but not cooling. I believe it might be the heater or heaters because the front of the refrigerator used to be hot, it's not even warm. In the freezer compartment has frost all over the back. I don't know if it's the heaters or something else? I opened the back where the cooling coils are, and it was solid

My refrigerator freezer is not freezing nor is the food in the refrigerator being cooled. I hear the motor running and fans blowing but there is still no cooling or freezing action. We have vacuumed the dust from the bottom of the refrigerator in the back. We have also removed the back panel in the freezer and see no evidence of icing on any of the parts. What could be wrong?

What is causing my refrigerator (Kenmore - 10 plus years old) to be dripping (center back) water which then freezes, thaws, drips more water, freezes and thaws? Is this fixable? Food cannot be placed in the back of the fridge or it will freeze. Food towards the front is okay. I have been keeping towels in the back to catch the dripping water and then they freeze. I vacuumed the coils underneath the fridge but no change in the dripping and freezing. Is this fixable at a reasonable price?

GE Stainless Side by Side gss25wst waterline into the ice maker freezes up and then pops out of the back of the refrigerator. When the ice maker dumps the next load of ice the water kicks on to refill the trays but the water line now pushed out on the back of the refrigerator dispenses water all over the floor. Is the problem the water line or the temperature in the freezer that's causing the problem? thanks

Refrigerator GE Have water that runs down the back of the refrigerator, ends up under the vegetables bins, had looked at the repair booklet but could not find that particular problem there, It starts right in the back where the controls are located right under the freezing compartment, I am thinking there must be some sort of blockage, have checked and the fan is running, but the water is not evaporating properly.


I had water accumulating under our GE refrigerator so I pulled out the fridge to get to the back of it. There is a long black tube that goes to a plastic pan to catch the water and the top of the tube goes into a black U-shaped piece of plastic. ... Hotpoint FFA70 Bottom Freezer Refrigerator

Model 550 Refrigerator constantly running. Had a Subzero repairman in and he said the evaporator coil is leaking and the refrigerator compressor is running constantly to keep up to temperature. I have it set at 5 and the temperature is 38 degrees. I decided to turn the freezer control to off (to make sure that compressor was not running) so I could move the refrigerator control warmer to see if it cycled off. When I turned the freezer off, the entire unit went silent; it apparently was the freez

I have a top mount Kenmore refrigerator, model no. 106.60272990, serial no. EK2929089. It is about 10 years old and works fine except for one problem that has kept recurring every 2-3 months over the last 2 years. The drain in the back keeps freezing with water accumulating in the refrigerator. I keep using hot water to unfreeze the drain, but, as I said, the problem keeps recurring.

Anyway, I took the back off the frig and the little panel in front and vacuumed everything to see if that would help. I had both settings on 5 which is where

All of a sudden our refrigerator freezer and refrigerator stopped freezing and cooling.. The fan is working, cleaned the coils, but when the compressor kicks on it only runs for about 10-15 seconds before kicking back off and makes a loud noise when running.. Is our compressor going out, and if so can I replace it myself..


UNPLUG and remove the compressor relay...if it rattles when you shake it..its bad, if not, it could be the compressor..it takes alot of specialized training and tools and material to replace a compressor. Its not a job that can be done by the average ... Maytag MBR2256KES / MBL2256KES

I have a GE GSS25TSRDSS. The freezer has frost on the back panel and the refrigerator bottom drawer is freezing food. The ice maker has not been working for about four months, but this temperature issue is new. The fan in the back runs constantly at this point, and there is no freezing on the coils. I had a service tech come out from a well known company that rhymes with ears, and originally they diagnosed a bad fan and broken ice maker. Today, once the parts were here to be installed a d


The diagnosis may be correct, but that doesn't mean it can't be repaired. It just can't be repaired nicely. It ought to be possible to disconnect the original wire (clip it at both ends), and run a new one. You probably will not be able to route t ... GE Refrigerators
