Question and Answers

Q:

Freezer and Fridge wont stay cold 10672909202 Kenmore Refrigerator, top-mount

A:

Edit - looks like the freezer did start working and making ice later in the day. So this still seems to be a "turning on and off" problem and not a "freezer can't get cold and make ice" problem. Any thoughts appreciated.

Thanks for contacting manage my life about your refrigerator model 106.72909202; sorry you are having a problem, I will be glad to assist you. Based on the description you have provided I suspect a couple things and you can check them yourself. Because the unit appears to be shutting off for long periods of time (long enough to melt ice)  I would first look at the thermostat control. The fresh food temperature setting is the control that operates the running of the compressor and fans. If you could catch the unit in the extended off period, try turning the thermostat on and off to see if it make the refrigerator come back on. If it does make the unit come on then the control is the issue. _Always disconnect power supply before servicing the appliance and when testing live voltage be sure to wear proper safety equipment (gloves and eye protection) also be aware of sharp metals on product_The next possible cause would be the compressor overheating; this can be caused from a clogged condenser coil or a bad condenser fan motor.  Check the coil, if it is covered with dust and lint that may be the problem, clean the coil and allow time to determine if the cleaning helped. The condenser fan motor should be running anytime the compressor is running, so if the compressor runs and the fan motor in the machine compartment is not running test power to it and replace if needed. Note: the two extra connectors off the defrost control are for optional features and are not used on your model.  Here is a link to Sears Parts Direct.I hope this helps you, if you need more help reply with added details and I will be happy to respond. If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services.Ron H.

Thanks for all the great advice (especially the part about the extra connectors - that was driving me nuts!). I have now also cleaned out around the condenser coil (it actually wasn't that bad) and confirmed that the fan was working but still I seem to have this problem (but I think less severe). Someone else advised that I should change the thermostat (the regular one, not the defrost thermostate which I already changed anyway). At this point, since that is around $30 I figure I have little to lose - and besides, this is becoming a matter of pride at this point! Any other thoughts appreciated on what I may also want to consider. Thanks again.

Hi Joseph, the main thermostat could be shutting off and not coming back on that is correct. Let me know how this turns out. Ron H.

Hello again - yes, it looks like the main thermostat was the culprit - the fridge has been working like a charm since it has been replaced. I wish I could have changed this item first, but I am going to go with the assumption that my fridge needed all the parts I replaced and not just the last one I replaced...even if that is probably not true. Thanks for all the help and advice.
