Q:

Refrigerator not cooling

A:

I can appreciate your concern over having your food potentially spoil due to warm temps.  It appears it could be some form of a blocking issue.  The air transference is either being hindered by frost, food or some other physical obstruction.   I have located a link that will discuss your situation in more detail. 
Click here to view the link.  Though this link discusses a different model number,
the mechanics are likely going to be very similar.  Keep in mind that an expert will be
responding within the next two business days if not sooner and will likely offer you more information and
instruction.  I hope this will be helpful and have a nice day.

Thank you for choosing ManageMyLife.com and allowing us to help you. Here are some tips to help you determine why the refrigerator section is not cold enough and your freezer seems to be ok.

Control Setting – Look at the dial. Temperature or setting may not be set correctly. Make any necessary adjustments.
Warm air getting in – If doors are being left open, opened frequently, or if there are poor seals around the door(s). Also food stored in the door of the refrigerator often stays warmer than food in the interior.
Vent being blocked – Air flows between the freezer and refrigerator sections to provide proper cooling via air vents. Move any food items that might block the vents. This is a very common cause that can be easily taken care of. If you notice any ice build up in freezer section, it may be an indication that the air is not circulating into refrigerator section. Excessive frost build up will cause vents to freeze up. Usually this problem can be corrected by performing a manual defrost cycle. I am including the instructions for manual defrost below.
Manual Defrost:

1.Unplug refrigerator or turn off circuit breaker for 24 hours.
2.Leave both doors open.
3.Place towels at bottom of refrigerator to absorb excessive water.
4.Turn power back on, allow refrigerator to stabilize temperature before loading with food.
Condenser coil is dirty – When the condenser coil is dirty it causes the sealed system to overheat and therefore the refrigerator will not cool properly. Clean coil if necessary.

If you do not feel comfortable repairing this problem yourself, you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Click here to schedule service online at the Sears Home Services website. A 10% discount coupon is available when service is set on line.

Check the back panel in the freezer, to see if frost is building up, on it. Frosting on the back panel, indicates a defrost problem and this frost will block the air flow, to the fridge section. In this case, turn the unit off for awhile, to allow it time to defrost completely. When all the frost is gone, the unit will cool ok for a few days, which will allow time to have a technician out to check it. It's possible the return air vent could be restricted. A good way to determine this will be, to check the air flow out of the diffuser. If it feels weak, open the freezer door and if the air flow increases now, it indicates the return vent is blocked (usually iced). In this case, again turn the unit off for awhile, to allow time for the vent to thaw out. If the air flow seems slow and it doesn't increase when the freezer door is open, it could be a weak (slow) fan motor.

is there a test for the diffuser using the on and the filter reset buttons? #6 is manual defrost.... what are numbers one through 5? (update: calibrated my meat thermometer to 32F using ice-water slurry, put the thermometer in the jelly in the fridge for 60 minutes and got a temp of 40F with the thermostat set to 39F; freezer reads 6F while set at 0F)

Thank you for your follow-up question. You may have seen our expert Scott D response that shares this information from another question he answered.

"There is a way to test this control, to determine which part will need to be replaced. To put this board into the diagnostic mode, press the control on button and the filter reset button simultaneously for 3 seconds. Diagnostics will begin at step 1 and you will need to get to step 5. To advance through the steps, press the filter reset button for 2 seconds or until it beeps. If the diffuser opens in this stage (5), the control board # 8201527 will need to be replaced. If it still won't open, voltage (120 volts) at the baffle between the white and black wire will need to be checked. If it won't open but you can hear the motor running, the diffuser # 2216112 will need to be replaced. These parts are available at Sears PartsDirect ". Click here to view this diffuser

 A basic way to test this part is to open the refrigerator door until the temperature rises in the refrigerator enough for the baffle to be opened fully by the control and the compressor starts (if it was not running). You should feel some air flow through the opening in the divider wall at the top of the refrigerator where this part is located. If it is stuck shut and your refrigerator is warm, you could have a problem with frost or an open motor in the baffle. You can unplug the refrigerator and check the motor for resistance. I don't have an exact resistance specification for this part but you should read continuity. Refrigerators with this part normally have a control board. You can check the wiring connections between the control board and the diffuser.

Remember that any temperature adjustments you make will take 24 hours to take.  I am happy to see that your setting are getting closer to a normal temperature setting.

Thank you for your question Larry. I am so sorry to hear the ice maker isn't working. I know I prefer even water with lots of ice in it. Especially as the warm weather is coming. I would like to get some additional clarification on what is going on with the icemaker. Unfortunately our program seems to have added some extra characters and symbols to your question. Besides the arm being bent, what is going on with the ice maker? Does it get water? If so, does it freeze? And is the ice stuck in the ice maker and never ejected into the ice container? Please respond back to this thread so I can better determine the best course of action to get the ice maker functional again. Thank you for choosing Sears Larry, we appreciate you as a valued customer.

The ice maker gets water, it does freeze and from time to time it makes ice cubes. Right now it appears the strip arm is stuck. There is no water in the ice tray and no cubes.

Thank you for the additional information Larry. If the strip arm is stuck, you will have two options. 1. Replace the strip arm. 2. Replace the ice maker. I have included the links for both. If you are going to repair the ice maker, I recommend investing in the icemaker repair manual. It will take you through the process with step-by-step photos.

While you are getting parts for the refrigerator, you might want to sign up for our automatic reorder program for the water filter. With the reorder program, you will get free shipping on your complete order and also on future filter shipments. It is important to change the filter on a regular basis as an old filter can prevent the water from reaching the ice maker.
