Question and Answers

Q:

Freezer works fine but refrigerator not cooling 10656676500 Kenmore Side by side refrigerator

A:

There could be a couple issues with this. The first thing to check would be the fan inside the freezer. The best way to check this besides taking everything apart would be to open the freezer door when you hear it kick on, and see if you feel air being blown at you. 

The next thing to check would be the air diffuser that helps the air travel from the freezer to the fridge. Some times when the diffuser closes the cold air from the freezer could freeze it closed. The diffuser is accusable from inside the fridge section. It’s the opening in the top left corner of the fridge. 

The last thing and could be a very good possibility would be the defrost timer. The defrost timer is what sends the signal to the fan and the diffuser to both operate.

Thank you for your question. I can understand your concern. Both the temperature and the defrost control are built into the control board (# 6 in picture). It's possible the heating element may also be causing this problem. The board can be put into a defrost cycle manually to help determine, if the board or element has failed. To put it into the defrost cycle, press the on pad and filter reset pad at the same time for 3 seconds. The unit will stop running and it should indicate a 1 in the display. Now, press the filter reset pad for 2 seconds or until it beeps and release it. You will now be at step 2. Repeat this process until you get to step 6, which is the defrost cycle. Now open the freezer door and after a few minutes, if you can hear a sizzling sound, it will indicate the element is on. In this case, the control board # 2313172 will need to be replaced. It's available at SearsPartsDirect . If nothing happens in this cycle, some voltage checks will need to be made. If you have a meter and feel confident that you can safely make these checks, I will be glad to assist you further. To put this unit back into the normal running mode, press the filter reset pad again or you can disconnect the power for 30 seconds and then reconnect it. I hope this will help you. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Scott, Thanks! I tried this procedure and the defrost came on and melted a lot of ice on the coils, I am getting the proper air flow now. So now I am getting ready to order the control board. Great advice. Thanks again.

Hi Scoot, I am having the same problem with my Kenmore fridge, Model 106.56676500. The compressor runs constantly and the temp. on the fresh food side is OK. On the freezer side cold air is blowing freely from the vent behind the ice maker but the temp is not cold enough to keep the food frozen. I have completed the above test and I do not hear sizzling in the defrost mode. Please advise on the voltage checks needed to isolate the problem. Thanks, Jay

Thank you for your question. I'm sorry you are having this problem with the refrigerator. Based on the information listed, this does not appear to be a defrost problem. The first thing you will notice with a defrost problem, will be the fridge section no longer cooling. If there is a thick frost accumulation on the back wall in the freezer, it would be a defrost problem and then the fridge section would stop cooling, due to poor air flow. If the compressor is running constantly, there is not a thick frost accumulation on the back wall and there is good air flow, this will lead to a sealed system problem. A technician will be required to make this type of check and repair. You can call 1-800-469-4663 to schedule a tech to come out. If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

Same model. I experience ice build up in the coils every 1-2 years. So I defrost by turning off for a while. Same symptoms...motor runs 100% and temp starts to rise in both compartments. In Arizona, so very low humidity environment; also low usage. Tried cleaning the condenser coils but that does not seem to be the cause...hard to clean well in any case. After manual defrosting it runs well for many months. Any ideas? Does this sound like a poor defrost cycle?
