Question and Answers

Q:

Freezer will not make ice 10653554201 Kenmore Refrigerator

A:

Thank you for your inquiry on your Kenmore Refrigerator, Model: 106.53554201. From reviewing the details on your model, a good check for this will be to reverse the wire connections on the water valve. The valve is located behind the refrigerator. Disconnect power from the unit and remove the panel cover behind the refrigerator. You will now see the valve and it will have 3 solenoids. One solenoid will be separate from the other 2 which is ok. Reverse the wires from the other 2 solenoids and plug the power back in. Now activate the dispenser and if the water works, the icemaker will need to be replaced. If water still won't run but you hear a humming sound, the water valve will need to be replaced. If nothing at all happens, some voltage checks will need to be made.

Safety Warning: Before beginning the repair, disconnect the direct power supply to the refrigerator to prevent the risk of injury or any electrical shock.

If you don’t feel comfortable or confident in this repair, then you can have it repaired at home by a sears technician. I have the included a link to the website: Sears Home Services or call 1-800-469-4663.

 

I hope this answered your question. Thank you for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com, and have yourself a wonderful day.

Hi,

Thanks for contacting ManageMyLife. I understand how frustrating it is having trouble with your appliance.

The evaporator fan motor moves the air around in the freezer and the refrigerator section and since the freezer wall is not icing up and the freezer works fine I would check the air damper mounted at the top left corner of the refrigerator section.  There is a screw the holds a cover over it and after removing the cover the damper will be exposed and you can take it down and see if the flap is broken or what the problem is. 

Please feel free to let me know if you need further assistance. We are always here to help.

Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

Bill _W fan is working in freezer. As for your refrididaire section attachment, your circled red area # 12 I believe is the problem. when I removed it the damper is closed. Does this need to be reset or is the motor on the unit that the electrical wires run to bad? Can i manually reset by reopening?

The little bulb by it is the thermistor but the flap open when the reading on the bulb gets over the set temperature. The thermistor is pretty durable. the motors cause problems because the lever breaks.

Bill so you are suggesting I purchase a new motor/assembly for the damper? I put it back together last night and left the damper opening about 50% of the way open with the digital setpoint at 4 on both freezer and frig which is the midpoint and recommended setting. This morning, freezer is cold and making ice. The fridge is getting air thru the vent in the upper left hand corner but my wife thinks it still isnt as cold as it should be. Is there anything else to check? I did blow out the coils underneath frige by compressor to make sure they are free of dust debris. If you could respond to day that would be great and if we cannot go any further then I will probabaly have to notify a seas tech to come out.

The damper is a complete assembly and to cool the refrigerator the flap should be open all the way. THE problem with that is the refrigerator will then get too cold as the flap needs to close at 37 degrees and I would replace the damper. Here is the link.

A:

Bill, This makes sense. The motor probably closed the damper when fridge hit 37F and broke thus causing damper not to reopen when needed, therefore over time opening/closing the frig lost its coolness. I manually set the damper 50% open thinking that was mid range when I set the digital control at a 4 setting and only being 50% open this morning explains why my wife thought it was not cool enough yet. I have part ordered...thx for all your assistance, very thorough explanation on your part!!!!

A:

I know that it can be very frustrating to have issues with your refrigerator. Something like this is usually caused by an incomplete defrost cycle. Open the freezer and inspect the evaporator cover. If you see frost or ice build-up then this is a sign of a defrost failure. You may need to FIRST, disconnect power to the refrigerator and remove the freezer evaporator cover. This way you will be able to inspect the complete evaporator. You should not see any frost or ice blockage. For the ice build-up symptom on this model we recommend replacing the defrost limiter with a higher rating limiter also called a defrost thermostat. You can use a hair dryer to carefully defrost the evaporator if needed. Other possibilities; freezer fan, damper assembly or a stuck relay on the control board. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.
