Question and Answers

Q:

What does the bushing part G187559 do on refrigerator model 253.60532406 and how is it installed?

A:

The bushing on the evaporator fan reduces friction and constricts the motion of the fan motor in the motor bracket. The image below provides a basic procedure for access and replacing the evaporator fan on your type of refrigerator. Your exact refrigerator may differ slightly from the one described below but the basic procedure is the same. This should help you replace the bushings on the evaporator fan motor.

Q:

Why is the freezer cold but my refrigerator section is warm?

A:

If the evaporator fan behind the inside back panel of the freezer is not spinning, then it is likely that you will need to replace this fan motor. The evaporator fan should be spinning whenever the compressor is running. The part number that you indicated in your details is actually for the condenser fan. This fan should be spinning as well. This fan is down by the compressor. Based on your symptoms, this is not likely the fan that is causing your problem. If you are able to unplug the refrigerator and remove the inside back panel of the freezer, you can check to see if the evaporator fan is running. If it is not, unplug the refrigerator and check the wiring connections. If the connections are okay, you may be able to fix your problem by replacing the evaporator fan motor (part 5304445861 substituted from original part number 240369702). You can order this part from the Sears PartsDirect website. If the fan still does not run after replacing the motor then you have a wiring failure in the circuit. Be sure that you unplug the refrigerator whenever you are accessing internal components.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.

Q:

Why is my refrigerator is not cooling? I have a Kenmore model 253.60532406 the freezer is cold. What can be the problem?

A:

In reference to your Kenmore refrigerator, model number 253.60532406:

The following scenarios assume the refrigerator or freezer runs .

  • Inadequate time for cooling – This can happen if the refrigerator is only recently delivered or if a large amount of food has recently been placed in it. This includes food placed in crisper drawers.
  • Control Setting – Look at the dial. Sometimes freezer dials are located in the refrigerator.
  • Vent being blocked – Air flows between the freezer and refrigerator sections to provide proper cooling via air vents. Move any food items that might block the vents.
  • Warm air getting in – If doors are being left open, opened frequently, or if there are poor seals around the door(s). Also food stored in the door of the refrigerator often stays warmer than food in the interior.
    • Surrounding temperature is too low or too high
    • Too low (below 55F) (Winter): (Does not affect standalone freezers)If the unit is in a cold environment such as an unheated garage, basement or outdoors, this may affect the thermostat.
    • Too high (above 110F) (Summer): If the unit is in a hot environment such as a closed garage without air conditioning, on an enclosed back porch, or in direct sunlight, this may overheat the system affecting performance.
  • Condenser coil is dirty – When the condenser coil is dirty it causes the sealed system to overheat and therefore the refrigerator will not cool properly.
  • Defrost Cycle - When the refrigerator goes into defrost, the cooling mode stops and a defrost heater energize to remove accumulated frost from the evaporator (cooling) coil, which causes the freezer temperature to rise slightly.
  • Refrigerator Lacks Clearance For Proper Air Circulation - Refrigerators require a specific amount of clearance around the cabinet to allow for air circulation. If the refrigerator does not have the minimum clearance required, the refrigerator or freezer cannot cool properly.
