Question and Answers

Q:

Kenmore Side-By-Side Refrigerator model #: 596.50692001

A:

Thank you for your question. A few more details about the model 596.50692001 side by side refrigerator that is not cooling would be needed to tell you why it is not cooling but there are some things you can check.

If the refrigerator is not cooling at all then first I'd suggest checking the compressor.

You can pull the refrigerator out from the wall and check if the compressor and condenser fan are both working. The fan must be turning and the compressor must be running.

If the compressor and fan are not running then the unit may be stuck in defrost or the thermostat might be bad.

If the compressor and fan are running, then the condenser coils should be hot to the touch. If they are not hot then the problem might be a Freon leak.

There is a fan in the freezer section that pushes cold air to the refrigerator section. If the fan is not working then the freezer may seem okay but, the refrigerator section will be warm.

I hope this information is helpful to you but if you can provide additional details then, I may be able to assist you further. I suggest having a professional do this for you. You are able to schedule a repair at www.SearsHomeServices.com  

If you have anymore questions, please reply to this post.

Thank you for choosing Manage My Life.

Thank you for your question. I'm sorry you are having this problem with the refrigerator. The burst of air or gas you experienced that came out of the hole, would be gas (refrigerant). There will be refrigerant lines that run to the front of the cabinet. These are the hot gas lines that act as the heater along the front, to keep moisture from developing. Unfortunately, there is no schematic drawing that will show where the refrigerant lines are inside the cabinet. If any of these lines are punctured, the unit will not be repairable.

Thanks, my son also informed me that these lines that ran from the top down the front were heated lines that schematics don't show because they are not exact on the top. He has however fixed the fridge Friday night when he got home. He used a 5 in1 tool to tear the sheet metal between my drilled holes, then used sheet metal snips to cut away an area big enough to get at the line. He dug the insulation around the copper line out and sanded with special sandpaper and cleaned. He cut out the damage section and silver soldered in a new piece. He then soldered a filter and connector port in on the compressor in the back. Pressure tested, Vacuumed out the system for a couple hours, added the correct amount of coolant less than 6 oz. checking the pressure on the gauges and temperature in the fridge and freezer for a few hours making slight adjustment in the coolant. So far the freezer has been between 0 and 3 degrees and fridge 35 to about 39. He has also said this isn't a do it yourself repair. You need special equipment most people won't have access too. Also welding/solder skills so you don't damage other joints/connections. Plus this is not a fix that can be warrantied to last. That damage might have already been done to the compressor (acid that forms when air gets in the oil) that will shorten the life of it, not knowing when it will go. Since this is what he does and the leak was obvious from where I drilled. The cost less than $10 total for him, it was worth fixing, but because of the time involved in most cases wouldn't be worth it.
