Thank you for your question. I'm sorry you are having this problem with your refrigerator. If it�s not cooling at all, it first needs to be determined if the compressor is running. If the compressor is running, the problem will probably be in the seal system or with the compressor. It could be a low charge, a restriction or the compressor may not be pumping properly. These are checks a technician will be required to make.

If the compressor is not running, it could be a problem with the starting device, the compressor itself or if the condenser motor is not running. If the motor is not running and the compressor is very hot, the motor will need to be replaced. If the motor is running but not the compressor, sometimes it can be difficult to determine if the problem is with the starting device or the compressor. If the starting device is burnt or if it rattles when shaken, it will indicate the starting device has failed. A technician will have a kit and meter, he can attach to the compressor that will determine if the compressor or starting device has failed. Without this kit and meter, a chance can be taken to replace the starting device # 241524605 and capacitor # 5304464438. If the compressor still won�t run or if it runs but then quits again, it will need to be replaced. I�m listing a site you can access, to have a tech come out. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services . If you would like more assistance, reply to this thread and I will be glad to assist you further.

Q:

Refrigerator replacement parts

A:

Ice on demand is a great feature in refrigerators. I see your is not dispensing. While you wait for the expert to review your model and respond if you would like to check a response for a similar question on a slightly different model I attached below. If you would like to just have a technician visit to diagnose and make repairs an option is the Sears Home Services link below.

A:

The answer Barbara H sent gives good information for testing the dispenser on your refrigerator.

If the cube solenoid at the rear of the freezer is lifting and the auger motor is turning the auger, ice may be jammed inside the crusher at the front of the ice bucket. You can remove and empty the ice bucket and clear the ice jam.

If nothing is running when you try to dispense ice, but the water dispenser is working, a switch or board might have failed inside the dispenser.

If you have questions, reply on this thread with details of what is happening and what you have tried and I will be glad to help.

If you are not comfortable doing the tests on the refrigerator, you can go to Home Services and get a Sears technician to repair the icemaker.
