Why is my Kenmore refrigerator, model 253.73762302 not cooling?

A:

Why is my Kenmore refrigerator, model 253.73762302 not cooling?

Common causes your refrigerator is not cooling properly:

  • 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 – Check dial settings. Sometimes freezer dials are located in the refrigerator.
    • Don't radically change the temperature setting. Adjust the control only to the next higher or lower setting.
    • Wait 24 hours to allow the temperature to stabilize. This is the most important step and cannot be rushed. If the temperature needs to be adjusted further, repeat the process.
  • 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 energizes to remove accumulated frost from the evaporator (cooling) coil, which causes the freezer temperature to rise slightly.

  • Demo Mode - While in demo / showroom mode, the interior lights and control display work but the compressor and fans do not run.

  • 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

Q:

Why is water getting in the refrigerator when the ice maker fills?

A:

The only way I can see water leaking in the refrigerator when the ice maker fills would be from the fill tube. I would suspect it to be leaking next to the back wall in the evaporator section. Some of the water could be running down the wall into the refrigerator. If this is the case the tube will either need to be replaced or sealed with some food grade sealant #17001002. You can purchase this at partselect.com . If you need more assistance you can resubmit your question with more details.
