Thank you for your question. I'm sorry you're having this problem with the fridge. This type of problem usually indicates poor air flow to the fridge section. If there is no frost build up in the freezer, the most likely problem will be with the air diffuser. There is an updated air diffuser assembly # 2216112 that should help solve this problem. It's available at http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/2216112/0046/106?pathTaken=directMatch&filterPart=&pop=flush&prst=0&shdPart=2216112&sid=MMLxexpertxmerch . When installing this new diffuser, make sure to seal around it good, so there are no air leaks. I hope this will help you. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

My refrigerator is a Kenmore Coldspot, 106.5653440. The freezer works fine. The refrigerator compartment is warm. When I open the door to the freezer, cold air flows into the refrigerator compartment. When I close the door to the refrigerator, cold air stops flowing into the refrigerator compartment. Ideas? Thanks!

Ted, this indicates the return air vent is frozen. To clear the vent, turn the unit off for 24 hrs to allow it time to thaw. This can be caused if the doors are left open for long periods of time or if there is a gap in the door seal. If there is a gap, a hair dryer can be used to smooth the gasket out but be careful not to get the gasket too hot and melt it. I hope this will help you.

A:

Bob, the part you are referring to is the defrost thermostat. It's a safety to shut off the heating element, if the temperature gets too hot. If the coils are all frosted up, the problem could be with this thermostat but it's normally very reliable. This could be a problem with the control board, which has the defrost timer built into it or the heating element. Now, if only the top part of the coil is frosted up, then this could also be a problem with the sealed system. A technician would need to make this type of check. You can call 1-800-469-4663 to schedule a tech to come out. If you would like more assistance, let me know and I will assist you further.

Hi,

Thank you for your question, and I would like to answer the question this way.
The damper is accessed from the refrigerator side of the liner, remover the screw holding the damper cover and the damper is exposed. The thermistor controls the damper through the board. Here is a chart of the resistance of the thermistor. And a diag. Chart to test the damper motor.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance please include more details in a reply to this entry below.
Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

Why is ice maker in Kenmore refrigerator, model number 10653203202, not making ice?

A:

Core Issue: Why is ice maker in Kenmore refrigerator, model number 10653203202, not making ice?

Resolution: When the freezer door is open the light should blink. Avoid blocking the beam and push in on the flipper door on the left side. The red light will stop flashing and should be solid red. This is a indication the optics are working correctly.

  • Assuming that you have made sure the ice maker is turned on, check the temperature in freezer section.
    • Normal freezer temperature should be 0 - 5 degrees fahrenheit in order for ice maker to produce ice.
  • Low water pressure can also cause for ice maker to stop working.
    • Water pressure to refrigerator should be at least 30 psi. You can check for adequate water pressure and flow. If you already have a refrigerator installed which has a water dispenser, you should be able to dispense about 3 to 6 ounces of water in about 5 seconds from your dispenser.
    • Replace water filter every 6 months, or sooner, as needed (depending upon water conditions).
    • Kinked tubing - Re-route plastic tubing to remove kink. Copper tubing cannot be unkinked.
  • Fill tube frozen- fill tube freezing shut, will not allow ice maker to make ice. Moisture accumulation in fill shut with subsequent icemaker fill cycles.
    • Fill tube can be located on ice maker, fitting tube dropping down to ice maker. To correct problem, defrost fill tube by place warm cloth around it, until it becomes soft and flexible.
    • If problem persist, fill tube kit may need to be replaced, contact service technician for proper diagnostic.

Note: General information for resolution is based on information provided in question. Please contact a repair technician if problem persist. Call Sears Repair Service 1-800-469-4663
