Question and Answers

Q:

Both Freezer & refrigerator to cold & over freezing 10654586400 Kenmore Refrigerator

Q:

Refrigerator freezes food in bottom compartments. 106.54586400

A:

Thank you for choosing sears I would be happy to help you with your refrigerator. Upon researching model106.54586400; based on the description provided, it sounds like the thermistor may need to be replaced. The thermistor (similar to the thermostat) is a sensor that senses the temperature of the air in the refrigerator and sends a reading to the control board causing it to cool more than it should or in other cases causing it not to cool at all. I have posted a link below of the thermistor.

I trust this information will help you, have a great day.

Thanks for the quick reply. Regarding the first link - loud vibrating noise, we've been there, hair dryer and all after discovering ice build up near fan. This problem appears to be different as frost builds up, ice isn't building up around the fan or making a vibrating/loud sound, just popping. Is it advised we replace control panel with defrost timer? There are steps on this website to detect if the timer is the problem, however it doesn't indicate my model - would this test be adequate for any model of the coldspot series? thx

The testing for the defrost timer (or control board in this situation) is different for the various models of Kenmore Coldspot refrigerators. I provided a tech sheet in the first image below that describes the diagnostic test sequence for your model. You can test the defrost bi-metal termination thermostat condition using that diagnostic test program. You can also test the defrost heater and the operation of that bi-metal thermostat using that program. The second image shows the wiring diagram for your refrigerator with that circuit through the bi-metal thermostat and the defrost heater traced in pink and brown (actual wire colors according to the tech sheet). This information should help you check that system and the control board. You may also benefit from watching this repair video regarding cooling problems in the refrigerator: Refrigerator Not Cooling Repair .

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you need parts, you can order them from the Sears PartsDirect website.

If you get to a point where you need to have a service technician examine the refrigerator and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

I have a similar problem to this, same model. Ice is building up in the bottom of the freezer and freezing over the drain for the defrost system. I unplugged and defrosted the refrigerator completely. The ice slowly builds up and sometimes seams to be OK then I see it building up around the drain hole. I'll just pour a cup of hot water down the hole and clear it. Seams like the refrigerator is getting to cold. I've lowered the temp in the freezer to 3 and have the refrigerator at 4. The compressor runs and fan seam to run for a considerable amount of time but they do shut off. I've clean out the coils of all the dust a debris so I'm good there. I was trying to look and the tech sheet you posted to try and trouble shoot, but could not make it out image quality to low to read. Is there a way to get a better copy of this?

Curt: I added the image below. Check and make sure the drain tube is not restricted or defrost water can not drain and freeze over.

I am back having the same issue as last year but this is a little worse. I�??ve set both freeze and fridge to 1 and everything is over freezing. Last year the problem was fixed by completely unloading the refrigerator and defrosting, letting it sit off for several days. After this I plugged it back in and it worked normal again. I don't have the room or time right now to do a complete tear-down & defrost, plus this seams worse. Is there a way to trouble shoot this to see if it is the main board or a temperature sensor or something else. I never could use the image posted because the image was so low resolution that I could not read it.
