Question and Answers

Q:

refrigerator not working

A:

Hi,

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

Use a towel and lock the condenser fan down and when the compressor is running you should have heat on the mullion in between the freezer door and the refrigerator door. 

If the compressor is kicking out on overload that would explain the compressor stopping.   The other thing that could cause this problem is the thermostat being faulty. 

The best way to check the sealed system is to check the frost pattern on the evaporator coil when the compressor is running.  If the coils start to get a frost pattern sand the compressor shuts off, is there voltage to the compressor from the thermostat ?  If the answer is yes compressor is faulty. 

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

Thank you for using ManageMyLife.com.

Thank you for submitting your question. I understand your concern and I will be happy to assist you. The issue you're experiencing could be with the compressor (12000005), start (2262181), or overload (819100) the relays. Here is a great video on how to test the relays and compressor. If you have to replace the compressor it may be more cost effective to purchase a new unit. You can order any parts from our Sears Parts Direct web site. I hope this information helps. Please reply back to this thread if you require further assistance. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

You may have a problem with that coupler or other components in that ice bucket. The parts diagram for that ice container is shown in the image below. You can examine those parts and replace components as necessary. Here is a link for a page where you can order parts: Kenmore Refrigerator Model 106.8552680 Freezer Interior Parts .

Here is a video that shows the basic procedure for disassembling that ice bucket assembly. Your ice bucket will probably be different than the one shown in that video but the basic repair procedure should be the same.

In addition to fixing the ice bucket assembly, you will probably need to address a cooling problem or air leak in that freezer compartment. Check the door on the ice chute at the front of that dispenser to make sure that it is closing properly. If that ice door is broken or leaking air into the freezer, it could be causing the problems with the ice freezing into chunks in that ice bucket. Reply with additional details if you need help repairing that type of failure.

A cooling problem in the freezer could also cause the problem with ice freezing into chucks in that ice bucket. Check for an automatic defrost system problem in the freezer if necessary. Here is a video that explains that defrost system and provides some general troubleshooting for that type of failure.

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

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

Thank you for the information. I ordered the coupling part. However, in checking on the freezer door we found that it is not closing with the seal. The seal is about 1/4 to 1/2 inch from the frame of the refrig. Is there an adjustment for the freezer door? Nothing is blocking the closure. The seal is just not making contact withthe refrig frame. The gap is the entire length of the door. Thanks, Linda

A:

If the freezer door is not aligned properly, then you may be able to loosen the screws and/or bolts on the hinges and adjust the alignment of the door to eliminate that gap. If that does not help, then you may need to loosen the screws (not remove them) on the inner door panel and "rack" (align squarely) that freezer door to eliminate the gap. Those screws on the inner door panel secure the gasket, attach the inner door panel to the outer door panel and provide stability for that door assembly. Remove all items from the freezer door shelves and unplug the refrigerator while making those adjustments. There is a chance that you may need to replace that freezer door gasket to fix that problem. Fixing that door seal problem can be difficult. You may need to have a service technician correct that problem. If you need more help, let us know.

Thanks again. I think we have the door problem fixed. I actually had something blocking the closure and did not realize the problem.

Well, the fix was short lived. I am afraid it is the freezer door gasket. Do you have a video on how to replace? Thanks, Linda

A:

I added a video link below this response that shows how to replace that door gasket on your type of refrigerator. That video shows a bottom freezer type of refrigerator but the basic procedure is the same for your model. As an additional tip, I recommend that you leave the screws in at the four corners of the door. Loosen or remove those screws one at a time to remove the old gasket and position the new one in place. This will make that repair easier. That door will loose stability when those screws are removed. You may need to "rack" the door before tightening those screws all of the way. Racking refers to adjusting the "square" of that door so that it lines up properly with the cabinet. You may also want to coat the new gasket with a light film of petroleum jelly (such as Vaseline). That will lubricate and protect the new gasket. I hope that this additional information helps. If you need more assistance, let us know.
