Question and Answers

Q:

Do I need a new thermostat? 5649935611 Kenmore Refrigerator (sanyo)

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for using SearsPartsDirect.com.
Based upon the visuals and parts list, this model is pretty basic and straightforward. Sometimes, if the vent from the freezer to the refrigerator is leaking chilled air, it can cause that issue. Usually there is a vent air diffuser or damper that opens and closes the vent from freezer to refrigerator, but I didn't see anything like that on the diagram. It may be worth checking to see if you feel continuous chilled air entering the refrigerator before replacing parts. 
If not however, I agree with your assumption, a defective thermostat could also cause that issue by telling the freezer/compressor that it's constantly in need of chilled air. It could also do the exact opposite and run warm. I would check the vent first and if there is some kind of damper, sometimes resealing it with RTV silicone or the like will solve the issue. If not, then I would look at the thermostat.
Hopefully this helps and let us know if we can be of any further assistance. Thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com.

Q:

How do you replace a door gasket [part 303111] on a Kenmore compact refrigerator model 564.9935611?

A:

First lift the lip of the gasket to check for screws. If there are screws under the gasket, they will be holding the gasket and inner door panel in place. You will first need to remove the door and lay it down. To get the door off, remove the screws holding the top hinge. With the top hinge off, you can lift the door off of the bottom hinge and lay it down. Now take all the screws out, from under the gasket, to free the inner panel. With the panel loose, the lip of the gasket will now slide out, from under the panel. Remove the gasket and slide the new gasket in place. The gasket lip should have some holes in it that will line up with the screw holes, in the panel. Now put the screws back in place and tighten the panel back to the door frame.

If there are no screws under the gasket, holding it in place, it will be a pull off and push on gasket. In this case, the lip of the gasket fits in a groove in the door. If you need more assistance, you can resubmit your question with more details.
